The hotel is well located, comfortable and very clean. The tea kettle in the room was a nice plus. The staff were very helpful, with maps and tips about what too see and where to eat. We enjoyed seafood at La Mejillonería. Beach is near by. All around bargain. Would definitely return.

Very well priced pension, friendly staff and very clean. Initially, a little hard to find but soon found it! I do not like the long pillows in Spain, have come across them everywhere but I guess that's just a different culture! We were in a very noisy room and I did struggle to get to sleep each night, if there... More

This small pension is in the centre of San Sebastián and is perfectly located to explore this wonderful town. We were greeted with a smile and the lady on reception couldn't have been more helpful with advice on where to go, etc. The room itself was clean and comfortable. We will definitely return

nice pension in centre of San Sebastian; restaurants, cafe and beach is very close by. Personnel is very friendly. We stayed there in early May hence not a warm month so we did not miss A/C. Only comment could be that it is on a relatively busy road. Price quality very well

Nice clean room in a good location, reception staff were very helpful with places to go and recommendations for lunch. Rooms are a good size with hair dryer and kettle. Would stay again for a weekend break

My wife and I stayed at Pension Garate for 3 nights between Christmas and New Year. I was impressed by the level of customer service a couple of days prior to our arrival, as i was contacted by email asking me for our estimated time of arrival and was given some helpful advice to travel from Bilbao to San Sebastian...

As the title says you cant go wrong...decorated to a high standard. The bathroom was excellent and would have no hesitation in recommending. Free wi fi in the room. Our room had a balcony to the back of the property and a safe is provided free for passports. Drinks in a honesty box for a euro lovely stay

Fabulous pension, centrally located, great but small rooms. The staff is amazing and extremely helpful. Very clean. The only drawbacks were we were there in August so sleeping was comfortable with the windows open but there was street noise so bring ear plugs. We plan to stay there again. Great facility.
