The holiday apartment Gros Arena 2 in San Sebastian enjoys a perfect location. It is situated just a step away from the Old Town and next to Zurriola Beach, in the Gros neighbourhood. It is a quiet accommodation totally refurbished during 2012. It faces a large and tranquil block courtyard.
These are the three main features of this vacation apartment; tranquility, outstanding location next to the beach and the Old Town and recent refurbishment. The holiday accommodation Gros Arena 2 is located on the second floor of a building with a lift.
There is a cosy lounge-dining room next to a modern kitchenette, perfectly equipped and designed as an island within this main space. The lounge has a flat screen TV set, a DVD player and a comfortable leather sofa, chaise longue style. There is also a French window giving access to a small balcony. The central table by the sofa can be raised to become a dining table and there are comfortable folding chairs to be used with it.
The main bedroom has a king size bed with large wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with a bath.
The second bedroom has a trundle bed giving the possibility of two separate single beds. This bedroom is next to the second bathroom fitted with a shower cubicle.
The holiday accommodation Gros Arena 2 also offers Wi-Fi Internet system and gives you the possibility to rent a parking space for 13€/day if you wish to do so.
This vacation apartment is located within the same building as the accommodation Gros Arena so it is an interesting option for those who need two apartments next to each other.
There are all sorts of shops, pintxo bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood, as well as grocery stores. As it can be seen in the location map, just by crossing the Kursaal Bridge we get to the Old Part of San Sebastian where there are also all types of bars, restaurants and shops, apart from La Bretxa Market, one of the most genuine markets in the city.
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)

Hemos pasado una estancia en donostia perfecta.
El piso es bien ubicado y muy agradable.
Todo ha sido muy bien.
Apartment was great! Good location nice and close to the beach, bars, restaurants and shops. 1 minute walk to old town. Nice and quiet. Could have done with air conditioning but apart from that this place is perfect! Juan is also very friendly. I will stay here again in the future.
Great apartment in a fantastic location. Checking in was great with host going to extra trouble to help us with our luggage (we had lots as we were traveling with 2 little kids) and drive with my husband to a cheaper car park, then walking him back. He also gave great tips on what to do and dinner recommendations - which we followed and were extremely happy with. Loved San Seb, after traveling around Europe for a couple of months, this was hands down our fav place and although we only stayed here, felt you couldn't get a better location.
I did not stayed there but rent it for 2 weeks for business partners and they were very happy with the location and services.
The host, an agent based in San Sebastian was very available and always answered shortly to all our needs. I would definitly recommend this place for a business trip to San Seb!
