Kubos gets its name from the fact that that the apartment is only 50 metres from the Kursaal Concert Hall and Conference Centre, locally known as the Kursaal kubos, or cubes. The Kursaal is the favourite venue for most of San Sebastians cultural events and conferences.
Kubos is a stones throw from Zurriola Beach and within very close walking distance to the city centre and Old Town. The location and spacious terrace are two of the most outstanding features of this delightful apartment.
Kubos is neatly designed to maximise every bit of the 55 square metres of living space, and no space lost on hallways. The large terrace also gives the apartment a feeling of spaciousness. Situated on the 5th floor, the apartment is both quiet and gets plenty of natural light.
Kubos has two bedrooms, each (email hidden) wide double bed. The main bedroom is ensuite and opens on to the terrace. The apartment also has a guest toilet next to the living room. The kitchen is separate from the living room and is fully fitted.
A baby crib is also available free of charge.

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 Nuevo, a magic place 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)
Great host, flexible and nice apartment!
Great apartment in Gros. A block away from Zurriola Beach, a five minute walk to la bretxa and the old city and 10-15 minutes from la concha. Safe neighborhood with a few small grocery stores within a block or two. Apartment looks just like its pictures with two good sized bedrooms and a very nice patio area. Definitely recommend.
