NH Collection Aránzazu, a new hotel concept for San Sebastián

By NH | 16:33

“NH Collection Aránzazu brings together the light, gastronomy, and vanguard style of San Sebastián in one unique hotel concept.” These are the words of Hugo Rovira, Managing Director of NH Hotel Group in Spain, Portugal, and Andorra. And it is the best way to describe what the new 4 star NH Collection San Sebastián Aránzazu is all about.

Located in the elegant Ondarreta neighborhood, very close to the beach, the Aránzazu hotel reopens its doors after becoming part of the NH Collection line. To meet the standards of NH Hotel Group’s Premium brand, the hotel was remodeled with the goal of being one of the provincial capital’s hotels of reference.

The hotel’s decoration is truly vanguard in style. Marble stands out in reception, being used in columns, elevators, and especially the floors. Its 180 rooms are marked by fine woods, a range of whites used to accent the light entering through the large windows, and green patterns that evoke the Guipuzkoan capital’s natural surroundings.

Additional, the rooms feature important decorative elements designed by renowned artists, such as tables by Isamo Noguchi, the “Tolomeo” lamps by designers Michelle de Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina, or the Sancal Club’s armchairs.

Finally, the large spider lamp also stands out, made from five concentric rings whose design symbolizes both the industrial past and technological future of the region. Hand finished and weighing more than 100 kilograms, the LED lamp majestically presides over the hotel’s reception.

Another of the strengths of this new complex is the area dedicated to meetings and events. With a total of 7 lounges able to accommodate up to 300 people, the NH Collection San Sebastián Aranzazu offers to its customers 1100 m2 of wide windows that provide natural lighting to the spaces.

Apart from meeting and event spaces equipped with the latest technology (digital projectors, portable transformers, videoconference equipment, cutting-edge plasma screens, high quality sound systems…), our clients will be able to rely on the experience of the NH Meetings team, which will provide backup and support services for any meeting or event held in the hotel.

Being located in a region like the Basque Country, NH Collection San Sebastián Aránzazu could not ignore fine cuisine, and for this reason a unique gastronomic experience has been incorporated. Our restaurant, Kukuarri, is an innovative culinary concept that combines Chef Martín Aristondo’s celebrated Basque cooking with renowned bartender Diego Cabrera’s exclusive cocktails. All of this is found in one versatile space, with several unique atmospheres, in which design and fine food combine to create an extraordinary gastronomic experience.

This is all because San Sebastián is a paradise for lovers of fine gastronomy. For this, enjoying the city’s celebrated cuisine is as important as visiting its monuments, museums, and beaches. Significantly, three of the city’s restaurants have three Michelin stars each, with other restaurants bringing the city’s total to 16 stars, which makes it the city with the second most Michelin stars in the world.

And you can’t miss San Sebastián’s famous pintxos. The old town and the Gros neighborhood are home to many of the city’s bars and taverns where pintxos can be sampled. Many establishments feature a star pintxo that must be tried, paired of course with a txikito (small glass of wine) or txacoli (typical white wine from the Basque Country).

After eating, there is nothing better than wandering through the old town’s streets, and discovering Constitution Plaza, Saint Vincent Church, Saint Mary’s Basilica, or the San Telmo Museum. Other points of interest, such as City Hall or Alderdi-Eder Park, can be found in the Ensanche district, characterized by an elegant and romantic 19th-century urban design.

Ondarreta and Concha beach, along with Santa Clara Island, make up one of the city’s most beautiful and iconic panoramas. However, surfing lovers will prefer Zurriola beach, next to the Kursaal Congress Palace and Auditorium, whose conditions are ideal for surfing.

And nothing beats ending the day with a beautiful view. The views of Concha Bay as seen from Mount Igeldo are some of the city’s best: the perfect way to end this vacation. We will be waiting for you in our NH Collection San Sebastián Aránzazu hotel!
