Torn between 2 Hotels pls Help

Arriving in San Seb on our anniversary 2nd Sept for 3 night.

We are both huge foodies so super excited for the gastronomy.

The hotels are the Hotel NH Collection San Sebastián Aránzazu or Astoria 7.

I know NH is closer to the beach and more breakfast options within walking distance but Astoria is closer to the Old Town. We picked these two as within our budget.

Plshelp....

Regards Stuart

I've book NH Aranzuzu on a recommendation of someone else. Heading in 2 weeks time. It does look lovely and apparently the walk to/from old town is lovely after eating and drinking your body weight in food and wine haha

I have stayed at the NH Aranzazu Hotel and enjoyed it. There are frequent buses to downtown, or you can walk it. The area of this hotel is upscale with expensive apartments and the beach nearby.

The walk is very nice along the coast from NH Aranzazu.

From Astoria7 you can walk along the river into the centre. More bars and restaurants along the route too if you go direct.

Aranzazu hands down.

Distance difference to Old Town between both is negligible.

The Aranzazu is more upscale, its lobby bar is great and great dinning options around. Just across the door try "La Bernardina"
