Built on an old office building, the newly opened Hotel Lasala Plaza, in San Sebastián, is the first four-star hotel in the city. Although its 1917 facade has been preserved, its new structure has seven floors topped by a prodigious terrace overlooking the bay of La Concha.
From the roof, located on the 7th floor, you can see magnificent views of the bay of La Concha. On the terrace is the pool, with solarium, and all the necessary equipment to relax outdoors while enjoying a 360º panoramic view of the city.Of its 56 double rooms, 26 have sea views, like the one in the picture. The remaining 30 overlook the old town, an area full of charm.
The establishment, located in the Barrio del Puerto, is a tribute to the culture of San Sebastian and its marine spirit. An imposing sculpture with 13 oars in wood and copper, designed by Javier Zubiria and built by the craftsman Aitor Muñoz, receives the guest at the main entrance. A tribute to the trawlers. The curved design of the reception table reminds of a ship, the lecterns to the moorings of the port ... The ground floor houses the lounge, the library and the La Jarana tavern, while on the first floor there is a flexible meeting area. The hotel has 58 rooms, spread over six floors and decorated in a French neoclassical style by interior designer Luisa López Tellería.
Each of the floors is dedicated to an emblematic museum of Donostia (Romano Oiasso, San Telmo, Naval, Castillo de la Mota, Aquarium and Basque Maritime Factory Albaola) with replicas of works of art. Hence his new concept of art-hotel. Some rooms have sea views such as the Sea view or the Grand Deluxe Sea view and others are oriented to the historic center. This is the case of Basic, Historical, Premium historical and Deluxe historical.
Two Historical rooms are equipped with home automation systems especially suitable for people with mobility difficulties. In addition to its spectacular views, the hotel has another great plus: the gastronomic one. From the ground floor, and with independent access also, you can access La Jarana Taberna, a place where guests or will not enjoy dishes and pintxos made with native products, such as hake cake, kokotxas batter or zurrukutuna, typical soup of garlic and cod.
- The great cultural offer and the beautiful landscapes of Donostia are worth a visit.
- If the weather does not allow swimming, a walk along the beaches of La Concha and Ondarreta is more than rewarding. If you like surfing, you can practice it on Zurriola beach.
- It is highly recommended to travel along the paths that lead to Mount Urgull; take the funicular to Mount Igueldo or the boat to visit the island of Santa Clara.
- You'll love the Aquarium, the Kursaal exhibitions, the Naval Museum and the San Telmo Museum.
- Get lost in the old town and try its varied pintxos watered with txakolí.
