On a quiet pedestrian street nestled in the heart of the city centre, Arzak 1b is the ideal apartment for an unforgettable holiday in San Sebastian. Literally a stones throw from almost everything, you wont need to use a car or even public transport. Arzak offers excellent options for getting to know the city on foot.

The apartment Arzak 1b is a first-floor with lift and faces a large interior courtyard. It's located in a completely renovated (2009) 6-storey building. The original stone façade was retained and the interior fully equipped and beautifully appointed throughout.

The apartment features oak floors, fully furnished designer kitchen, heating, remote control window blinds, and plasma TV. The large windows in the living room and bedrooms let in plenty of natural light.

The apartment is distributed over 95 square metres of living space. The open plan living and dining area is light, spacious -more than 30 sqm- and airy. This space leads directly on to a 60 sqm terrace. The apartment has three bedrooms, two (email hidden) double bed (the main one with en suite bathroom) and the other (email hidden) double bed too.

Optional parking space for 25euros/(website hidden) description:

San Sebastian’s centre, as it could be expected, represents the heart of the city. It is a very elegant area situated between La Concha Beach and the Urumea River. It borders on the Gros neighbourhood at East, on the Antiguo at West and on the Amara at South.

A great deal of shops and distinctive buildings are found in this area. Among these it is worth mentioning the Town Hall, the Victoria Eugenia Theatre or the Buen Pastor Cathedral.
Bars and restaurants spread out all around this area and if you would like to enjoy some typical pintxos, you can try any of them here. Or perhaps you prefer to pop-in in the Old Town, which is just a five minute stroll away.

La Concha, world famous beach and bay, stands out in this area for its natural beauty but also for the spectacular panoramic views from its promenade. At the same time, La Perla, a thalassotherapy centre pioneer in San Sebastian’s tourism since the beginning of the 20th Century is situated along this walk too.

The Miramar Palace appears as a natural frontier between the Antiguo, Aiete and the Centre neighbourhoods. This palace and its surrounding gardens facing the bay are like a banner for the city, as it was here where the former Royal Family used to spend their summer holidays at the beginning of the 20th Century. Thanks to these prestigious visitors San Sebastian became a very fashionable city among the elite tourism. Nowadays, the Miramar Palace houses the High School of Music of San Sebastian. You will enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the bay from here.

Several supermarkets can be found in this area as well as one of the most attractive markets in the city, the San Martin market. Both, traditional and the latest shops are located in this store.
Very close to the city centre, at the entrance of the Old Town, there is another well-known market, La Bretxa. There is also a good combination of traditional and modern shops here, probably the most genuine market in the whole of San Sebastian.

A gorgeous route you may want to take is that going from La Concha to the harbour and from here to the Paseo Nuevo, all along the seaside. Parting from this Paseo Nuevo, you also may feel like going up to Urgull Mountain, just a 15 minute climb. And we can assure you that it will be worth it, as you will enjoy the most beautiful view of San Sebastian right from the top. Coming down from the Mountain, you get back to the Old Town and, after passing by the Town Hall, you will reach La Concha again.

If you come to visit the city by car, you will find that there are various public carparks in the city centre: La Concha, Boulevard, San Martín, Okendo, Amara and Buen Pastor.

Thanks to a modern and wide network of public transport, the Antiguo is very well connected to the other city neighbourhoods. For more information on public transport you can visit the official webpage: (website hidden)

  • Excellent location. You literally fall out into central area of shops, bakeries, restaurants and bars. Modern, clean, quiet flat containing all the necessities. Flat was excellent in terms of value, location, cleanliness and function. Apartment is one of many in the portfolio of organisation but response to queries was immediate and sincere effort made to fix any issues. Would we stay here again? Absolutely.
    Potential negatives: parking lot is a 10 minute walk away. However, car and contents were safely looked after.

  • This is an excellent flat and I would definitely recommend it. There were three people staying and we had plenty of room and the facilities are very good. It is a lovely contemporary style apartment and the experience from start to finish with Juan was very good.

  • I thought the apartment was great. Perfectly central to everything, very clean and very modern. Only a very short walk to Old Town and all the shopping. It's a plus that it looks into the courtyard instead of the street, because the street is a very busy pedestrian street and you can't hear it at all from the apartment. Only thing that you should know is that there's an opera singer/instructor in an adjacent building that you can hear all day and into the evening. For some people this may be annoying, but I found it charming. There's nothing that the host can do about it obviously, but it's worth noting.

  • We had a wonderful time in San Sebastian. The appartment is excellent. Everything you need is there. Its location is perfect. You are living downtown, but very quiet in the night. Perfect! And only e few minutes from the beach. There is a parc just around the corner, all the sights are within walking distance.
