Only when you book with Chic
This charming, family-run Chic Retreat is tucked away in the heart of Gros – a district of San Sebastián only a few minutes away from the labyrinthine Old Town and the hip Zurriola beach.
Tastefully designed with interesting modern art, vintage furniture, and antique finds aplenty, this hotel has a distinctly arty feel. What’s more, the family who run Okako Hotel are very welcoming, and have plenty of fantastic recommendations on how to spend your time in their wonderful city.
At the hotel, a simple, informal breakfast of croissants, fruit, tea and coffee is provided in the lobby. For a more substantial start to your day, there are plenty of cafés nearby along with the Old Town’s famous pintxos bars.
Each of the 12 rooms have their own style and character - thoughtfully designed with unique antique furniture and modern art. Pricier rooms feature a balcony with views of the Gros neighbourhood.
For a day at the beach, head to the Playa de Zurriola – just 10 minutes’ walk from Okako Hotel. Popular amongst young people, San Sebastián’s liveliest beach is great for ball sports as well as surfing. Indeed, you can catch some great waves here all year round. What’s more, there are also some excellent beach bars, so when day turns to night, there’s no need to stray too far.
It would be remiss to come to San Sebastián without fully immersing yourself in the city’s world-renowned gastronomy. To sample the best pintxos, book yourself on to one of San Sebastián’s excellent food tours. This way, you’ll get to try out myriad mouth-watering dishes alongside some delicious local wine, beer and cider, all the while learning about the city’s culinary culture.
