Ur-Alde is a cosy, fresh pension with a superb location in the old town. But best of all is the host Haritz. We were a big group staying in San Sebastian for some days and Haritz helped us with everything. And he speaks perfect english too...This was my second stay here and I can really recommend it!

We stayed 2 nights in this small but cosy pension. We were greeted by the welcoming receptionist with a big heart and she helped us with pintxos recommendations and transport arrangements with enthusiasm. Our room was Room-1 (Provence) and it has a small balcony with a street view which is great for people watching.

If you want to be staying in the most touristic spot in San Sebastian then this is it. Only meters away from the best Tapas and historical sights. Remember this is a Pension not a hotel. The staff are extremely helpful and trustworthy. Rooms are small with no air con but being close to the sea it seemed ok,
