The Space

If for your next visit to San Sebastian you are looking for a vacation home offering you the best in comfort and location, then the holiday apartment Kasino is what you were looking for.

The vacation apartment Kasino is situated on the fifth floor of a building with a lift. It is located just opposite the spectacular Convention Centre and Auditorium, the amazing building designed by the admired architect Rafael Moneo. It is at the same time, next to the liveliest beach in San Sebastian, La Zurriola, where most of the youngsters gather.
Just crossing the bridge situated next to the building, you will be in the Old Town and the city centre.

This recently refurbished holiday accommodation has been able to keep some of the original features such as the high ceilings, the treated old wooden floors and the restored radiators, which at the same time, are its best qualities.

Both the lounge as well as the bedrooms face the sea and have a balcony, so it is possible to enjoy wonderful sunsets.

The vacation apartment Kasino is a bright and spacious holiday home which gives you the impression of being even larger thanks to the mentioned high ceilings and the big windows.

There is a comfortable leather sofa in the minimalistic and sober style lounge.

Both bedrooms are quite large. The main bedroom has a king size bed and an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has two twin beds. There are also two extra single beds at the apartment which can be placed in any of the bedrooms.

There is a second modern bathroom fitted with a shower cubicle too.

This holiday accommodation has a fully equipped kitchen with top of the range electrical appliances and kitchenware. This way you can be certain to enjoy great meals with your friends, partner or family during your vacation in San Sebastian.

The Kasino apartment has Wi-Fi Internet system.

The apartment gets its name from the old casino which was situated opposite the holiday accommodation, just where the Auditorium Kursaal is nowadays. It is known as “Kursaal cubes” and all the crème de la crème used to be seen around here at the beginning of the 20th (website hidden) description:

The Urumea River separates Gros from the Old Town and from the City Centre by two different bridges, giving it an obvious closeness to them. It borders on the Bay of Biscay at North, on the Ulia Mountain at East and on the Urumea River and the Kursaal Convention Centre at West.

La Zurriola Beach, the newest of them all in San Sebastian, is located in this neighbourhood. It is very popular among surf lovers and professional surfers and it is also just a five minute stroll away from La Concha Beach.

At the end of the promenade along La Zurriola, at the side of the Ulia Mountain, there is an area of houses, pintxo bars and pubs called Sagües. It is a favourite spot among young people. There is also a great esplanade and leisure activity area here.

There are lots of shops all around Gros and in the last few years, it has become a very popular area for those in search of good quality pintxo bars and pubs. However, if what you are looking for is to follow a complete route of typical pintxos, it is a must to finish in the Old Town, just a 7 minute stroll from Gros.

There are some wonderful walks to be enjoyed from Gros to other parts of the city. For instance, starting at Sagües and walking all along La Zurriola promenade until you reach the Paseo (email hidden) when the Cantabrian Sea is rough. From here you can go up the Urgull Mountain, a mere 15-20 minute climb, then come down to the harbour and from there back again to the Old Town and Gros. A trully enjoyable all around walk.

The Gros neighbourhood has several supermarkets and other grocery shops for those of you who prefer to enjoy a more intimate dinner at the apartment.

If you are visiting the city by car, you should know there are three large public car parks in the area: Plaza de Cataluña, Kursaal and Txofre.

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)

  • I LOVED this apartment!!!! It was in an AMAZING location - directly opposite the beach and in the old town. Light, bright, very clean, comfortable bed and great heating. 2 bathrooms . Very smooth dealing with Anders and his associates. Hope to come back!

  • Every once in a while, in life, you experience the rare pleasure of having your expectations exceeded - as was certainly the case of this apartment. When my lovely wife and I booked the Kasino Sea View apartment, impressed by the photos, the location and the good reviews - we knew that it was a good fit for us. Only upon our arrival did we realize that aside from the listing description being absolutely accurate but it was rather understated on how wonderful and perfect it actually is!

    The apartment itself is beautiful, clean and inviting. All of the amenities are provided. The building is secure and well maintained. We enjoyed the ample space, two washrooms (always a plus) and the well-equipped kitchen - and of course the, always necessary, Moka Pot for our morning espresso. The WIFI worked great too.

    The location is also entirely stunning. The view from anywhere in this apartment is marvelous. The two balconies are great - and one can even lay in bed to watch the big waves crashing against the rocks out past the Kasino convention centre. It is also 2 minute walk to the Old Town (where many a delicious Pintxo can be had), the surfing beach, the convention centre and La Concha beach. As well, a walk up the nearby central hill is a great way to escape the bustling city streets and see some of the historic aspects of San Sebastian.

    Juan Ramon and his associates were very accomodating and helpful. Our entire visit went without a hitch, thanks to their attention to every detail.

    Mucho gracias for a fantastic few days in Donostia San Sebastian.
