Stayed during fiesta do the town was busy and noisy but the location was great. Good parking deal at La Concha and the staff were generally friendly. Very small room which was tricky with a little girl. Breakfast was a 5 min walk away in a bar - a touch odd but the alternative is nothing! Acceptable and clean.

We stayed here with our two boys ages 13 and 8 for three nights. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The location is excellent -- on the edge of the old city, very close to bars and restaurants in the old city but on a quiet street, and only a short walk to La Concha beach. The room... More

However, the bedclothes,tables and towels were covered on hair! Next problem was the noise,from inside and out! There was an aweful lot of noise coming from outside our rooms all night which kept some of... More

We stayed at Gran Bahia Pension for 5 nights. Staff were warm, helpful and informative. The location is ideal in the old town, there are bars and restaurants as soon as you step outside, and it's about 5 mins walk to the lovely beach. Breakfast at a nearby cafe was simple and delicious. The service was excellent- extras such as... More

I spent two nights here with a friend in October, and we were both extremely happy with this hotel. We got excellent directions from our taxi driver, as the hotel is located in the Old Quarter and only assessable on foot. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful - we had an early start the next day and would be... More

We had never been to San Sebastian and came by car. We had a difficult time finding the hotel, but once we parked at a nearby garage, it was a short walk. When we got there, the owner had left us a note that she was not there, but we could call her. We did and she came right away.... More

This place took us awhile to find it as it is located on pedastrian only street, in the old city. The traffic in San Sebastian didn't help and ack of nearby parking makes it triple trouble. However, once we checked in, the room is comfortable, staff is friendly, free botted water in the cooler. Breakfast at nearby affilliated restaurant is... More

Excellent location- right at edge of old town and minutes from la concha. Staff were very helpful and frienldy. Accomdation was clean and comfortable with air con. Only negative was that shower head needs to have new bracket fitted so it sits into it properly and shower door doesnt close properly.

We walked from the train station which took 20 mins- i would recomend taking a cab. The hotel/ private residence is located in a fantastic location within the old town surrounded by hundreds of Pintox bars, just one small street away from the boulevard and far enough from the loud bars. We stayed in room 4 and could hear all... More

Firstly I think you should rate based on the principle of 'am I getting what I paid for?' & 'does this meet reasonable expectations?' So with that in mind I really enjoyed my stay here. The rooms had character in a good way, the staff were lovely and helpful, it was clean & it was close to the good spots... More
