About This Listing
The vacation apartment Gros Arena enjoys a fabulous location, just a step away from the San Sebastian's Old Quarter and next to the Zurriola Beach, in the Gros neighbourhood.
This is a quiet holiday accommodation totally refurbished in 2012. It faces a peaceful large building courtyard. These are the three most noteworthy features of the Gros Arena; the tranquility, the amazing location by the beach and the Old Town, and the fact that it has been recently refurbished.
The holiday accommodation is located on the second floor of a building with a lift. On entering the apartment, we access directly the open plan lounge-dining room. To the one side, there is a modern fully equipped kitchenette and next to it, the lounge-dining area. In the lounge, there is a flat screen TV and a comfortable sofa bed. From here we gain access to a small balcony. There is a double bedroom with a queen size bed and large wardrobes. Next to the bedroom we find the bathroom equipped with a shower cubicle.
This vacation apartment is located within the same building as the accommodation Gros Arena 2 so it is an interesting option for those who need two apartments next to each other.
This holiday accommodation offers free WI-FI Internet access. It doesn't have a garage and the parking situation in the area is difficult and expensive. If you're coming to San Sebastian by car we can reserve for you a parking spot at a nearby car park when you make your apartment reservation.
The neighbourhood is full of shops, bars, restaurants and grocery stores. As it can be seen in the map, just by crossing the Kursaal Bridge we reach the Old Town where all types of businesses, bars and restaurants are found. Even La Bretxa market, one of the most genuine markets in the city, is located in this area.

Loved this apartment! We didn't meet Juan Ramon (he works with a management company), but communication with him was easy. The apartment was in a great location in Gros - about two blocks to the bridge leading to Parte Vieja. It was quiet at all times and appeared to have been recently remodeled. There were no issues and we would gladly stay here again.
Lovely apartment located close to the beach. Nice bars just around the corner or a short walk to old town and main shopping area. Great shower with lots of towels. Large sofa in living room which can be used for sofa bed. Bed in main bathroom was very comfy. Very good wifi. Apartment was very, very clean and a welcome pack was left for us including soap, washing up liquid etc which was appreciated. Host was very easy to contact and pleasant to deal with.
Everyone we met was very kind and helpful. The apartment was huge and clean and very very close to the beach and old town. Also walking distance to the train and bus stations.
The apartment was very clean and in a great location! There was an issue with the shower drain but Juan handled the issue very well and it was fixed within no time. The apartment is a nice size and great to have a kitchen and dining table space. The beach is a 10 minute walk and once you cross over the bridge into the old town there are hundreds of Pintxos bars around which was fantastic!
Great property in a great position, short walk to the old town and close to the surf beach. We had a great time here! Property is clean and has an elevator for your luggage.
Nous avons passé 4 jours merveilleux à san sebastian.
Tout ce qu'on lit sur cet appartement est vrai : il est calme, bien agencé dans le salon et dans la chambre, très joli avec des placards pratiques, idéalement situé, à 2 minutes du bord de mer et du très bon restaurant NINEU (essayez le menu gastronomique signé par Martin Berrasategui, LE chef basque espagnol triplement étoilé... sauf que là, ce n'est "que" 38 euros / personne), à 7 mn du centre-ville où on se délecte de pintxos plus exquis les uns que les autres (notre préféré: ATARI suivi de près par LA CUCINA DE SAN TELMO et son morceau de chèvre rôti et croustillant à tomber par terre!).
Et en voiture, vous n'êtes qu'à 1h10 de Bilbao pour visiter LE musée qui va marquer le reste de votre vie: le Guggenheim.
J'ajoute qu'il y a un canapé-lit dans le salon, donc on peut rentrer à 3 ou 4 dans l'appartement en se serrant bien !
Dans les points plus négatifs car il faut bien (et ils sont peu nombreux, finalement): quand vous avez une voiture de location, le parking est assez loin (15 à 20 minutes à pied... Il faut les prévoir !) + quelques ampoules grillées + la douche et le lavabo étaient un peu bouchés et la salle de bain manque d'espaces de rangement pour les trousses de toilette, les pyjamas... Rien de dramatique, cela dit!
Nous conseillons donc vivement cet appartement à tous ceux qui souhaitent découvrir San Sebastian et ses environs.
