San Sebastián is known for its beaches, Michelin-star restaurants and the International Film Festival that has attracted the world's superstars every September since its conception in 1953. This long love of the movies is apparent everywhere you look at Astoria7. Once San Sebastián's first multi-screen cinema, it still has an original screen and regularly shows classic films in the projection room, and the walls are adorned throughout with pictures and quotes from stars. You can even sit next to a life-size model of Alfred Hitchcock in the lobby while you wait to check in.
The hotel itself is a 20-minute walk from the Old Town and beach, but the main bus terminal is just around the corner and the bus to town stops in front of the property. Being slightly out of town means the prices here are usually better value -- The Daily Telegraph calls it the best reasonably priced option in the area.
There are 102 retro-styled rooms, each dedicated to a different film star -- spend the night with Matt Damon, Audrey Hepburn or Richard Gere, among others. Expect high-tech touches: you can open the door with your smartphone and Wi-Fi is free. The most impressive room is the Alfred Hitchcock suite, with a wraparound terrace, a retractable screen and whirlpool bath. Single travellers also get top-floor rooms with private balconies.
Downstairs, Bistroteka Restaurant serves a buffet breakfast with hot food cooked to order. Later on, there's an affordable selection of local pintxos and a casual menu with sandwiches, salads and larger portions of the aforementioned pintxos. There is also a small gym, and a library with a wide choice of film books and DVDs to borrow.
