Great place to stay. Location, right next to the cathedral (bells don't chime at night). Very helpful staff. Reasonable size rooms. Comfortable beds. Small refrigerator. The pedestrian entrance to the Buen Pastor car park is very, very close to the hotel but more expensive than the recommended La Kontxa car park. €50 vs €32 for two days. It could be... More

This pension is centrally located, right next to the cathedral. It's a short walk to the old town, la Concha beach, and to Gros. The rooms are simple and clean. The beds were very comfortable and we slept well the 3 nights of our stay. Our room was on the street side and there was some noise from cars passing... More

This pension is located just to the east of the river within a short walk of the Old Town and beach. It was an easy and pleasant 20 minutes walk to Amara station where the Euskotren Trena (which may now be branded Metro Donostialdea) provides regular and inexpensive transport to Hendaye for onward travel to Biarritz or elsewhere in France....

We stayed at Pension San Ignacio centro 2 for two nights in July. It was a convenient location away from all the noise and crowds of the old town, but still within a comfortable walking distance (7min to old town, about 10-15 min to beach). The owner who met us there after our arrival was friendly and gave us some... More

Only 5-6 minutes walk from train station, 5-6 minutes walk to the edge of old town. Basic, but clean, and plenty space. Dealt with 2 different staff members, both of them top drawer - friendly and helpful. No breakfast available, but couple of places nearby where you can get a cheap continental breakfast. Would stay again.

I liked this place. Nice location for the old town and beach. Room tidied every day but as is usual in a pension towels and sheets not necessarily changed every day but this is ok. I don't change my sheets every day at home either. Upgraded to a larger room which became free during our stay. The staff were helpful... More

We had a large, comfortable room. The two large windows opened onto an air shaft, for good ventilation and privacy. Reception was friendly and my inquiry emails were answered promptly. Just a short walk to the Old Town, with it's medieval streets and delicious tapas (called pintxos here in Basque country). Breakfast is available at a nearby cafe. San Sebastian... More

This pension had just what we were looking for: clean, renovated hotel rooms, nice modern bathrooms, great location and knowledgeable English speaking staff, all for a good price. We were very happy to find a room here when other pensions in the same price range are much more basic. We were very pleased with this pension and hope we get... More

Really nice pension. We got a lot of help from the very friendly host. He helped us to find free parking space up on the nearby hill and arranged with a electric kettle for our babys food. The room was quite dirty and the cleaning ladys hair was everywhere in the room. Comfy beds a plus, no air-condition a big... More

We stayed there for one night in September 2011. It is a very nice and quiet pension. It is located 5/10 minutes walk from the city center. We had a fantastic and very large room, everything was clean and new. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Private parking space was available close to the pension for a fee. Quite expensive...
