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

This is basically an office that was converted into a small pension. Some bad and good points should be mentioned, but all in all - very good value for money. The good: Even though the check-in times are relatively short, there is always someone to check you in at a short notice. Complimentary Nespresso machine, tea and milk Very friendly... More

Never stayed in a Pension before so was not expecting too much. Finding this Pension was difficult. The driving was Ok but the entrance is not easily found. We were put off going up the stairs to find it as it is on the first floor. There are only 5 rooms, and we had pre-booked a balcony so we had... More

My fiance and I had a great experience at Pension Ondarra. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were very bright, clean and modern. We arrived in San Sebastian very late on a train from Madrid and the desk staff was happy to stay late until we have arrived. Highly recommended!

As other reviews have said; clean, simple, modern and fantastic value for money. The water and coffee machines in the reception are a brilliant idea. We accidentally left a personal item in our room and checked out of the hotel, and they posted it to us in the UK. Now that's service!

We loved our stay in Pension Ondarra! Our room (101) was bright, modern and spacious, and had a lovely little balcony overlooking the street. The bathroom was huge, and with a fantastic shower. Location is great, in the Gros district, close to several amazing pinxto bars, and lots of shops. The surfers beach is a 5-minute walk away, and the... More

We only stayed here for one night but could easily stayed longer. The rooms are very modern and we stayed in room 101 which was very spacious. The rooms are very tastefully fitted with modern furnishings. Staff and location were great and the coffee machine a big plus!

An extremely clean and tidy room, with everything that you could need. The staff were veryhelpful with their recommendations. For the price of the room I couldn't have asked for anything more! There was even free use of the computer, so you don't have to worry about bringing a laptop, and the coffee machine was an added bonus. Absolutely no... More
