Car Hire San Sebastian

San Sebastian Airport Guide

One of the most beautiful cities in Spain, San Sebastian makes an excellent city break destination. You’ll have plenty to do there; spend your time on the fabulous beach which is less than a stone’s throw from the delightful old town. If you get bored of sunbathing and swimming, don a top and head into the alleys of the old town for an introduction to the city’s history. The energetic can climb to the top of one of the two hills that bookend the city and take photos of the fabulous view out over it. Finally, spend an evening in one of the seafront fish restaurants for some excellent Basque cuisine.

Hotels Near San Sebastian Airport

San Sebastian is a very upmarket city and the hotels match the city’s image. You’ll find precious little accommodation there at rock bottom prices so may have to stay a little out of the city if you don’t want to pay city prices. We recommend the Silken Amara Plaza Hotel, very modern and stylish at around 110 euros a night or the movie themed Hotel Astoria7 at 130 euros a night.

San Sebastian Time Zone

San Sebastian is an hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time and is in the Central European Time Zone (GMT+1)

San Sebastian Info

San Sebastian has one of the world’s most beautiful settings laid out behind a wide bay enclosed by two mountains. Some say it has similarities with Rio and that comparison is extended when you consider the excellent city beach. Despite existing in Roman times, the city was overlooked as the invaders made their base at Oiasso near present day Irun. After the fall of the empire, San Sebastian slid further into obscurity until the 11th century. Since then it has had a tragic history only rising again to greatness in the latter half of the 20th century.
