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

This place is great value, clean, nicely decorated and furnished, well-located and very friendly. It was actually a lot nicer than we expected for the money. Our room was enormous, more like a suite really. We found the owners to be really helpful with regards to advice on the local area and leaving luggage. The only downside is that hotel... More

This is a great hotel for a one or two night stay. It is well located, quiet and Carlos is a very friendly and caring host. You couldn't beat the price. The old town is a 5 minute walk away, you can walk to the hotel from the train station with a roll-away!

I stayed at Pensione Aida for a few nights this month and I absolutely loved it! The room was very clean and spacious enough, there was a tv, wifi and 24 hour reception. Another plus is the proximity to the beach and the old town with all the restaurants. They're both about a 5 minute walk away. The best part,... More

We picked this pension because of all the positive reviews we read on the Tripadvisor.... but were very disappointed. The noise of the train and the garbage truck (3 times every night!) woke us every time. The train comes by so close, it sounds like it will go right through your room. It scared the heck out of me every... More

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...
