We thought the Pension Ondarra was perfect for our 2 night break in San Sebastian. What stood out the most was how helpful and friendly the receptionist was - unfortunately I didn't get her name but she was always cheerful and helped us with car parking and supplied us with maps and a good list of tapas bars in the...

First off, as other reviewers have mentioned, if you don't know what to look for pension ondarra can be difficult to spot. Thankfully I knew that would be the case so I knew to look for the "p" on the door. It's in a lovely little neighborhood about 5 minutes from the old town. I actually preferred this location because... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Pension Ondarra. The rooms were kind of small but well designed. They gave us a map and list of places to eat and what to eat there (which was perfect for our pintxo crawls). Its very close to the beach and a 10 minute walk to the old town. We would... More

My experience at Ondarra was lovely. The rooms are quite small but they are beautifully presented. Ondarra can be a little hard to find as there is no signage on the outside just look out for the number of the building. Andoni was friendly and always helpful in suggesting places to eat and see. Ondarra is a 10 minute walk... More

This is a small, well-designed and comfortable pension within walking distance of the downtown areas and the beach. Perfect as a base for a pinchos (ie Basque tapas) crawl. It's on the first floor of an apartment building, with very cool decor and nice staff. Excellent.

We stayed just one night here but I would have happily stayed longer. From outside it presents as a rather unprepossessing building but inside its clean, nicely decorated and has good extras, such as the nespresso machine. There's no breakfast service but a few steps from the pension - across the road, to the left - is a lovely cafe... More

We stopped one night in this B and B and booked a room with the balcony. Raisa was really warm welcome and explain us all the things to do in San Sebastien. It is only at 5 mn walked from the beach who is gorgius. We had Tapas and have a really good sleep in this room. Bed is large,... More

When we arrived by taxi I remembered others saying to look for the "P" on the door for pension. We had no problem finding our way in. Raisa was there to greet us even though it was past check in time. She gave us direction to sights and restaurants. The room was clean and had everything, tv, full bathroom, extra... More

Pension Ondarra is just 5min walk from the beach and the old town. If you consider that here is Spain and there are a lot on activities in the old city, staying just outside you remain close to the action and you preserve the sleep quality. Worth mentioning is the owner, who is realy helpfull and friendly.

Pension Ondarra is well located approximately 300m from the beach and a 10 minute walk to the old town (for pintxos madness). As previous posters have said it is quite a hard entrance to find as we didn't know about the "P" on a doorway that signifies a Pension. We were greeted by the owner who gave us some handy... More
