  • The Kursaal has become one of the spaces of the most modern Donostia. It separates what is the old part, with a more modern and cosmopolitan city. Cubes of the Kursaal, have become a key part of the city. Above all illuminated, is a joy.

  • Do not enter for lack of time so little and evil I think, certainly on the outside it is a glob that have planted there in the middle and Mars the image of certain views. Building ugly and meaningless in an area that deserved something more aesthetic and better.

  • I had the good fortune to visit the city during the film festival and went to watch a movie programmed in one of the rooms of this place, that looked more like a theater so beautiful and imposing. Wonderful experience.

  • Excellent service, nice staff, super location, great cars, good prices! Simply GREAT!!
  • Beautiful area full of symbolism and by the beach. Many consider this building ugly, but it is one of the most stunning areas of the cities. Worth getting closer to it from the beach side, in order to feel its strength.
  • Really nice
