I thoroughly endorse the excellent ratings for this Pensione. We found this accommodation barely 24 hours prior to arrival and Juan responded immediately to our email request which,I found unusual in Europe. Our room was clean and comfortable and at the rear of the building where we experience little noise. A printed list of some dozen or so recommended bars... More

We came into San Sebastian not having a room reserved anywhere previously (and it was during the town festival.. hardly anything available), Juan was super accommodating and gave us one of the last rooms available (at a great price too). They're situated almost in the center of everything.. 2 blocks from one of the coolest beach settings I've ever seen.... More

Couldn't think of a better location to stay in SS. Close to the beach and only a five minute walk to the old town. The room was clean, cool and spacious complete with a handy fridge and a powerful shower! The owner Juan was a great host and gave us some excellent tips for exploring the city. With more to...

We stated here 4 nights in July. Wonderfully situated location close to the beach, old town, and market. The management is extremely friendly. Unfortunately, Juan - who speaks English - was away during our stay, but the other women (after finding a guest to translate our needs) were extremely helpful. Even going so far as to do our laundry (at... More

I've stayed here several times now -- could not recommend it more highly. Spacious, clean, well-situated rooms with balcony. Juan took over from his mother, very likable guy, professional yet laid-back. He went out of his way to help us with La Perla reservations, a sidreria visit, a rental car emergency and food recommendations. His pintxo map is amazing!! And... More

This pension is located 100m away from the Concha beach, perfect location with many shops, bars, supermarket around. We took a Triple room for 3 days in August 2013. Good size room, very calm thanks to the view on the backyard. Hopefully the weather wasn't hot, as there is only a fan, no AC in the room. They provide a... More

Excellent location, close to the beach and the old city. The room was basic, but very clean, quiet and safe. Wireless connection was ok. The room had TV, fridge and microwave. Free coffee and tea in the reception. Across the street was El mercado de San Martin and Fnac. Would stay there again.
