The hotel is located in the Gros area os San Sebastian, but is a very easy walk from all the main sites. It was a 20-30 min walk from the current bus station but apparently the will be moved in Nov 15 and will only be about 5 mins walk then. The train is very close <10mins. We stayed in... More

The bin lorry sits outside the building for at least an hour on a Monday morning - not a good start to any day of holiday, let alone a birthday where you've requested a special room and are expecting to be able to enjoy the open windows! Fumes, noise, revving up and still it goes on - just dreadful.

We stayed at Pension Aida for 4 nights in one of their studio apartments. Our room was very spacious and had lots of windows that basically overlooked the stone bridge that the train passed over. If you are bothered by noise, this place is NOT for you. The trains are LOUD but fortunately they do not run late into the... More

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The welcome was warm and friendly by the receptionist who I presume to be the owner. The hotel is spotless clean and in a great location for visiting the tourist spots and to mix with the local people of San Sebastian. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the city.

We stayed at the Pension Aida for 3 nights during a recent trip to Spain and would recommend this as a good hotel to stay in whilst in San Sebastián, as long as you are not a light sleeper. The hotel is in a good location and the staff are lovely, but the rooms are hot and very noisy. THE... More

I found this pension several years ago on trip advisor. It had exactly what my husband and I were looking for...first of all the location in Gros is perfect. It is a short walk, 7-10 min from old town, and from the beach, yet it is in a neighborhood so you can actually go into little nearby pintxo bars eat,... More

The place is very clean and the staff are helpful and friendly. However, there is zero insulation between rooms and you can here your neighbor receive a text, much less anything else that may be going on at all hours of the night. This part of the city is relatively calm. If you have any sensitivity to sound however, this... More

Stayed here one night after arriving in San Sebastián early for our booked accommodation. Fantastic accommodation and very friendly English speaking staff. Room was very large and had a bay window with table and chairs. Everything was spotless and modern with stone wall adding character. If you are heading this way Pension Aids is well worth considering.

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
