I stayed at this pension while traveling with my family. The four of us stayed in the Amsterdam Room, which had a bunk bed as well as a queen bed. The pension was very very clean, renovated and the staff was beyond friendly. We received a recommendation for the best pintchos places to try in Old Town as well as... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Pension Ur-Alde. You cannot beat the location right in Old Town near all the pintxo bars! The rooms were a nice size and the shower was huge with good pressure and hot water. The manager, Haritz, is incredibly friendly and helpful. He speaks English very well and had many suggestions on... More

The hotel well situated in the Old Town near the harbor and pintxos bars. Room nice size with modern facilities and a huge shower. The best in our travels so far. The staff very helpful and friendly. Not a quiet area although the noise more from the apartment above and the rooms next door due to very thin walls. Earplugs... More

Herritz went out of his way to help us in tracking down a lost bag. He also has the best recommendations for the pintxo bars in the area. It is not quiet in the old town in the night or in the morning - however we knew this and the trade off of being in the heart of the action... More

We recently stayed for a couple of nights here and fell in love with San Sebastian. The pension is located in the heart of the old town which is beautiful and great for the evenings. We received a helpful explanation of the parking situation before arriving so managed to park successfully at the discounted location, however we did get a... More

My partner and I stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Once you are checked in, the location can't be beat! Right in the old city and steps away from exploring all the Pintxo bars in the area. Our room was quiet, "Rio" and the shower was lovely. One thing that we didn't realize is that the location is...

One has to park at the Concha public garage, which is several blocks from this lovely establishment. But overall, the location is great and the young manager super helpful. For the area, this place is a great value.

The pension is located right in the heart of the old city. Just a hop, skip and jump away from all the tapas bars. No need to worry about drinking and driving. It is a pedestrian zone only. You can park at a general parking garage for 23 euros a day or park at an arranged hotel parking space for... More
