Stayed here for 5 nights and couldn't recommend it more. The owners were the most friendly I have ever met from any hotel experience. Instantly we were made to feel welcome and they were so helpful! When we arrived they gave us a map of the area and marked all the places we said we wanted to see. It's located... More

I had to book an interior room for that was all that was available. The difference in price was 5Euros from an outside room for 2 people. The interior rooms are overpriced for what you have to tolerate. I was told in confirmation email several times that I would be confirmed in an " INTERIOR" room. This should have been... More

Good location close to the train and the surf beach, lots of bars, cafés and shops all around. Also close to the river so easy to get to the old city etc. There is a laundromat across the street. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Prices are reasonable. The best thing though is the people. In particular I want to give... More

My husband and I just returned from a second trip to San Sebastian. Both times we've stayed at Pension Aida and would highly recommend this pension. Great location in the Gros neighborhood, just 5 minute walk from Old Town, the train station, the beach, etc. It's in a "real" neighborhood so lots of good options for less touristy dining. And...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. They even found some parking for us, although we hadn't booked it. The room was huge, clean and with really nicely decor. The hotel was centrally located - very easy to get around by foot. It was great! The only down side to it the proximity of the train line, which is a... More

We arrived at 8:30pm having spent all day on a train, and were catching a 7:30am train when we left, so it was great to have this hotel close to the station. We were welcomed by name and given a quick run down of the place and provided with a map to help us find something to eat. The next... More

We arrived early and were able to leave our bags until our room was ready at 2 pm. The very helpful lady at reception spoke English and gave us a map of the city with all the important things marked on it. We got a lovely quiet room with a clean bathroom. We could hear the train at night with... More

My friend and I arrived in San Seb (by bus from Bordeaux) at 6am in the morning. We got to Pension Aida and the loveliest man who is the owner greeted us. He let us leave our bags, use the bathroom, and then gave us a map and recommended things to do until our room would be ready at lunch... More
