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,

We chose this pension because it was in the old town and we wanted to really soak up the atmosphere of San Sebastián. It was about a 15-20 minute easy walk from the Renfe train station and a 10 minute walk to La Concha beach, 20 minutes to Ondoretta beach. The pension was on the second floor and there was... More
