After reading the reviews I was expecting a comfortable stay at a very reasonable price. What a lot of reviews failed to mention is how fantastic the staff are. Friendly, knowledgeable, great English and full of enthusiasm for what is a truly fantastic city. The rooms are clean, stylish and although a little on the small side they are perfect... More

I had a fabulous week long stay in on of the large studio apartments. Having a small kitchen was great and allowed me to self cater breakfast and have cold water and beach snacks on hand. The room was immaculately clean when I checked in. Being a larger apartment it wasn't serviced during my stay (which I knew about when... More

I spent 3 nights in a small single room with a balcony at the Pension Aida in mid- to late-May. This is a very basic, no-frills accommodation; whether it will meet anyone else's needs will depend, I think, on the match of pros and cons and individual needs. Pros: Great location (just in Gros across one of the main bridges... More

I'm not surprised Pension Aida is ranked #1 in San Sebastian: it is a fantastic place! It's in the Gros suburb, a couple of minutes from the Playa Zurriola (the surf beach) and a short walk to the Parte Vieja and all its pintxos bars and restaurants and the other amazing sights of San Sebastian (Playa La Concha, Monte Urgull,...

This hotel was the best of my trip. The room was spacious and clean and the staff were very welcoming and efficient.The location couldn't be better with a short walk to the centre and the train station.

Loved our stay here - the staff (gracias Carlos and Joakim!) were so friendly and helpful, spending lots of time with us helping book restaurants and giving us local knowledge to make our time unforgettable. We can't wait to go back. Only a very short walk to the old town (5 mins). The rooms are fantastically clean! Don't get me... More

A lovely pension in an excellent position. The best thing is the staff who are genuine, warm and friendly and very helpful. The rooms are bright and clean and excellent value for the price. Would suit young travellers who dont want to pay too much. An easy walk to the old city where tapas heaven awaits.

First time in San Sebastián. By staying at Pension Aida we had an even more wonderful experience. The room was spacious and comfortable and the staff (brother and sister) were so hospitable and kind. They went above and beyond what could have been asked and even told us where to go for amazing pintxos and gave us some history behind... More
