About Basque Country, Spain

Bordering France at Spain’s north-eastern tip, the Basque Country is very special. Boasting more dramatic landscapes than the rest of Spain — including a craggy Atlantic coastline — a distinct language and unique culinary traditions, it really is nothing short of spectacular. The same goes for the plethora of accommodation options scattered around the region. With gorgeous seaside towns, bustling cities and relaxed rural villages to discover, our selection of the best places to stay in the Basque Country is the perfect springboard for exploring the region. Whether you're looking for a chic modern hotel, a traditional rural B&B, or a Michelin starred restaurant with rooms, we've got the answer!

The Basque Country’s largely underrated regional capital is Vitoria-Gasteiz, home to a wonderful old town with a thriving arts and food scene. Far more famous is bustling Bilbao, the industrial port city now known for its futuristic Guggenheim Museum. This is most travellers’ arrival point in the Basque Country, offering its largest international airport and easy connections to hubs along the coast. Glitzy San Sebastián, the Basque foodie capital, is top of the list for romantic city breaks, surf weekends and lively nights out at the pintxos bars of the elegant old town.

The region’s smaller coastal towns and villages are also ideal for holidays as a couple or with friends and family. Head to Hondarribia for ancient ruins, an attractive beach and flavoursome fresh seafood. Close to the start of the Camino de Santiago’s Northern Way, the town is a hub for hikers coming across from the French border. Also on the Camino, the idyllic fishing village of Getaria, with its picturesque beaches and fantastic fish restaurants, plays host to two of the best places to stay in the Basque Country. The possibilities for travellers are almost endless.

The Best Places to Stay in the Basque Country


  • Hotel Villa Soro is unusual in promising the warm ambiance of a country house retreat close to the heart of San Sebastián. Built in 1898, this charming residence has been transformed into a beautiful boutique hotel with 25 uniquely appointed rooms and suites. Kick back in the peaceful landscaped gardens or gather around the crackling fireplace in the evenings. Charming and romantic.
  • Hotel Araba is a design-led 20 bedroom hotel with a cream and white colour palette, light wooden floors and minimalist interiors. Pick this place for the clean lines, the commitment to uncluttered design and the delicious Basque specialities served at the restaurant. An affordable choice for well-heeled travellers in Vitoria-Gasteiz.
  • Villa Magalean is a chic boutique pad with airy rooms clad in soothing dusky pink and light blue tones, with crisp white linens on big cosy beds. A gourmet restaurant and pampering spa complete the picture at this romantic bolthole in Hondarribia.
  • La Casa de los Arquillos, set across two buildings in Vitoria-Gasteiz's old town, is a charming little hotel with eight rooms and six lofts. Exposed wooden beams and stone walls create a timeless canvas for modern, understated furnishings.

Each of the 23 characterful rooms is decorated with antique furnishings, exposed beams and pretty floral fabrics. Gather in the snug bar for beer and pintxos in the evening, after pool swims and lazy afternoons on the terrace. Charming.

FOR Waterfront Style

  • Lasala Plaza Hotel, on the edge of San Sebastian's La Concha Bay, boasts a splendid rooftop pool and bar, as well as a modern restaurant with brilliant Basque dishes. Pick this place for the uninterrupted sea views, and the chic contemporary interiors, clad in fresh white and blue tones. Lovely.
  • Hotel de Londres y de Inglaterra prides itself on having over 150 years of history. Also overlooking La Concha Bay, this landmark hotel has 167 generously proportioned rooms and suites bedecked in traditional furnishings, with patterned textiles and private balconies.

  • Hotel Embarcadero overlooks the port in Getxo, just a brief underground ride from central Bilbao. A short walk from Ereaga Beach, this modern spot boasts waterfront rooms with private balconies, a smart restaurant, and easy access to a number of superb seafood eateries. For those seeking a balance between Bilbao and the coast.


  • Zenit San Sebastián has 78 modern rooms in the heart of San Sebastián. Flexible options with twin beds or additional space are ideal for families, whilst business travellers will appreciate the meeting rooms. Group discounts are also available.

Soak up the sunshine on the terrace, stroll to superb seafood eateries and take the little ones to the beach for the day. Family rooms sleep up to four guests at this charming and affordable hotel.
  • Palacio Urgoiti is a pretty collection of 17th-century buildings close to Bilbao. Ideal for families eager to be near Bilbao without staying in the city itself, the hotel has large guestrooms, a swimming pool, a delightful Basque restaurant and a nine-hole pitch and putt course. Relaxed and great fun.
  • Hotela Urune is a farmhouse hotel with generous family suites in the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve. A great value spot for families with simple, whitewashed rooms. Close to Guernica, the hotel is also well-placed for active days of kayaking and mountain biking with the whole family.

FOR Riverside Glamour

  • Hotel Maria Cristina, on the banks of the river in San Sebastián, is a glamorous Belle Epoque palace with 136 lavish rooms and suites. Think glittering chandeliers, warm golden and crisp white hues, and original artwork in elegantly appointed spaces. With two terrific restaurants and a central location, this is an opulent honeymoon favourite.
  • Gran Hotel Domine, near to the magnificent Guggenheim Museum, is an upmarket urban retreat, with seriously cool rooms reflecting different design eras — from Bauhaus to '90s minimalism. Think rooms done in pale greys, with crisp white linens and marble bathrooms, and an impressive art collection in communal areas. A five-star Bilbao hotel with terrific cuisine, a lively buzz and a rejuvenating spa.

For Rural Luxury

  • Iturregi, a stunning country house hotel perched on a hill overlooking Getaria and the coast, is perfect for a romantic escape. Sumptuous rooms and suites invite guests to unwind in luxury. Enjoy refreshing pool dips, and sip drinks from the honesty bar in the garden on warm summer evenings. A boutique favourite.

A beautiful escape for fans of contemporary design, the hotel is based around a Michelin-starred gourmet restaurant, where Chef Pedro Subijana dazzles and delights foodies with his innovative culinary creations.
  • Castillo de Arteaga, a hugely romantic 19th Century castle between Guernica and the sea, has gorgeous rooms with stone walls, beamed ceilings and large murals. Soak up the sunshine in tranquil landscaped gardens, feast at the restaurant and enjoy expert-led tastings in the wine cellar. Beautiful.
  • Arima Hotel is an impressive, eco-focused contemporary escape with a strong wellness ethos. Expect luxurious rooms and suites with clean lines and large windows facing the forest. Guests will revel in the holsitic approach to wellbeing, with fantastic fresh fare in two restaurants — including vegetarian Misura — and a superb spa.
  • Iriarte Jauregia, a stately country house just 25 minutes' drive from San Sebastián, is a rural haven with generous and comfortable rooms, most offering spectacular views over the hills and valley. The big draw is the Bailara Restaurant, which crafts delectable dishes from produce from land and sea.
