The character of this wonderful hotel remains true to its heritage whilst it also enjoys a new vitality and brightness, having been refurbished to the inclusion of all mod cons.
It offers you all the luxurious amenities you could ask for with four chic and flexible lounges allowing anything from intimate and private spaces for a smaller affair, to large romantic spaces for you to celebrate with up to 300 guests. “The hotel rooms are equipped with all of the latest technology and can be used separately or together, offering countless options for any celebration”. This unnique venue is prepared to provide every magical detail you’ve envisaged to make your day complete.
We love the Ibaia Elcano Zubia and lounges. The first offers a picture perfect setting for a banquet. It follows the sumptuous style of the Belle Epoque, with double height ceiling resting on a series of majestic columns topped with gilded Corinthian capitals. Female sculptures and garlands of flowers in delicate plaster adorn the walls framing century-old chandeliers of bronze and crystal, while five French doors wrapped in damask offer access to the terrace.
On the other hand, for more intimate weddings there are the other two rooms with a sophisticated atmosphere. The combination of pastel decor, spectacular ancient columns and crystal chandeliers create a seductive sense of timeless glamour. Both areas have large French doors that allow natural light to flood the room and terraces.
As if that were not enough, they also have a top notch wedding planning service. “We’ll deal with any ideas you have, because we have the most experienced wedding planners in San Sebastián who will help you prepare an unforgettable celebration.”
