We booked this hotel seven months in advance, as we were coming during a holiday weekend and knew that the places in our budget would book up quickly. Two days before we were to check in, we were notified by Booking.com that the hotel had just told them they would have their electricity turned off for up to 4 hours... More

This little pension is just across the bridge from the Centre and Old Town of San Sebastián, just perfect walking distance. They have an arrangement with a nearby secure car park, just 13€ a day, so perfect for a city trip. The rooms are big enough, with excellent beds, bathrooms etc. modern furnishings, colour schemes etc, very restful taupes and... More

I can't rave about this place enough!! The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, the room was beautiful with the most amazing window, and for the price, I have nothing bad to say about it. Honestly, if people are going to complain about this place, then I just don't know what they would expect for that price. I thought it... More

good location, clean and basic. It was the smallest room I've ever slept in and wonder how a man could cope.im not sure the word fabulous describes the experience I had. Not worth 60 euros.it was so hard to move around in the room. No breakfast or anyone on reception at certain times.

Comfortable, minimal and spotless guest house in the first floor of an apartment building in the 'Gros' area. Comfortable beds, really clean bathrooms with nice showers, warm welcome, central location and affordable prices for a fancy, smart city like San Sebastian. This lodging is a mere 5 minutes walk to the main venues that house the San Sebastian International Film... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. Great location, only 5-10 minute walk from city bus tour and 10-15 minute walk from beaches & old town. Taxi rank right outside. We didn't have breakfast at the Pension but got a really tasty and reasonably priced breakfast in a café 2 minutes walk away on Miracruz street. Only little fault was that the... More

We wanted to stay in Gros not knowing that the thousands of people that swarm Playa Zurriola on warm, sunny days, empty on to the streets for a non-stop party, filling every bar stool, every sidewalk, and every street that surrounds the hotel. We fled to the old city in the evenings, wishing that we had stayed there. Our family... More

After another hostel botched our reservations we tried here. Couldn't have received better service from Nacho! He booked table reservations on a busy Saturday night at one of the top places for pinxtos and wine:) Comfy beds, quiet at night, in great location on "surfers beach" side

I couldn't recommend this pensión enough. The location and price were perfect. The beautiful rooms with amazing windows as their feature. And mostly the amazing staff! We met Natxo who treated us so well! He helped us with all of our questions and even managed to get us a reservation in one of the best and busiest restaurants in San... More
