I stayed here for 2 nights with my mother last month. The staff were super friendly and helpful, especially Javier, who had messaged us prior to our arrival to confirm what time we were arriving. The building was situated right opposite the Cathedral and was easy to find (we walked from the bus station). The room was basic, but clean,... More

Perfect location to see all that San Sebastian has to offer. Could walk to shopping, beach, and Old Town easily. There were also really good vegetarian restaurants right on the same block. Strangely, this Pension is located above a candy store where kids tend to congregate, and there were literally dozens of kids hanging out outside screaming and carrying on... More

We were a tad dubious as we booked this last minute but turned out to be great value for money and excellent location. We walked everywhere easily from here. Run by a very proud and helpful hotel owner! Very large room also. If you book last minute, make sure you check your emails as the owner will try and arrange... More

The location of the hotel was great in the sense that it was withing walking distance to everything. We walked to La Concha Beach in the mornings and El Casco for pintxos at night. In the afternoons I enjoyed my coffee just downstairs at the plaza overlooking the church and people watching. The service was great and the room was... More

I stayed few days in this lovely pension. I have to say i was really nicely surprise because it was over my expectation. The place is really nice located in the center (plaza buen pastor) just in front of the cathedral and 5 min by walk to the old donostia where you can find the best tapas in town. In... More

Don't be confused by the name of this hotel, it is in the Centro district of San Sebastian whereas some might think it is in the Old Town. Still, it is perfectly located for being close to all the shops yet only a 5 minute walk from the edge of the Parte Vieja. Walls between rooms are a little thin... More

This hotel is in a great location and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were basic but clean and did have everything I needed. However my room faced the street so the traffic and pedestrian noise did wake me up a few times so perhaps ask for a room on the other side facing the cathedral.

First of all I would like to say I am really disappointed with Javier. I tried to cancel on September 14 for a reservation on September 21st as found a great new hotel called the Uruqull Urumea that was spotless and 115 euros night vs 135 at Pension Ignacio a two star pension not a hotel. I cancelled on Booking.com... More

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

Really good base for explaring San Sebastian! Beautiful, traditional, old building, decent size room and cupboard, clean and comfy. Staff was really friendly and helpful, whatever request we had they always sorted everything out immediately and with a smile. All of them were very friendly! We will be back.
