This is a great place to stay. Situated 5 minutes walk from Zurriola beach, it's about the same time to walk to the bridge that crosses into the old town. For that reason it is a great location. You won't realise until you get there but it's only recognisable from outside by the number 5 above the door. Once inside... More

Chose this for our 4 night stay on the basis of TA reports. It is very well located for the old and new town and the beaches, and we felt very safe around the area at night. Our room was well designed and had quality fittings throughout. It is reasonably quiet at night, and this together with the roll down... More

Nearest car park is Txofre which is about 400m from Pension. We parked the car and wheeled our bags out down the street – easy walk – about 5 mins. Pension will give you a flyer which you take to counter when existing and it costed us euro 12 for 1 night, 22 for 2 nights and 30 for 3... More

This was a wonderful facility with very helpful and friendly service. Our room had a balcony that got little use due to the rain, but it did provide a feeling of added space. The bathroom was one of the best we found in all of our stays in Spain, with a most spacious and modern shower. It was helpful to... More

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
