San Sebastian in the Basque Country of northern Spain "ranks among the great resort cities of Europe", says Rough Guides, who also claim it makes the most of its glorious location, "curving languidly around a magnificent semi-circular bay that's lined with golden sand". Zenit Hotel San Sebastian is a 4-star hotel, eight minutes' walk from the Urumea River and 20 minutes' walk from the beach.

The hip hotel is in the Amara district, south of the Parte Vieja (Old Town) and the Playa de la Concha. While in the Old Town, stop at the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Chorus, dating from the 1770s. Mount Urgull, a large hill with a castle at the top, is also a must-visit, commanding unrivalled views of the city. At the western end of the bay is the Miramar Palace, built in the 1880s by the Spanish royal family as a holiday residence in the unlikely style of an English Queen Anne cottage.

The hotel has a rooftop solarium and hot tub, surrounded by sun-loungers. The on-site Morlans Restaurant serves traditional Basque cuisine, and there’s also a trendy lounge area. Cycling is a popular way to see the city and the hotel offers bike hire at 10€ a day -- an excellent way to sharpen your appetite for some evening pintxos.

Sleek Standard Twin and Double rooms with wooden floors and contemporary décor are air-conditioned and have free Wi-Fi, mini bars and TVs with cable channels. Junior and Deluxe Suites have upgraded bathrooms and separate living areas.
