First, check-in. I've stayed at many high end hotels, and get the "well you're early but we will accommodate you" look or tone. I showed up at 11am for a 2pm check-in, and you would have thought I was on time. No comment, no attitude, just your room is ready and we will get you checked in. Then, the front... More

We loved it here due to the location, views & hospitality. Firstly the staff were very welcoming, eager to help with phone calls & laundry where needed. Top marks. We stayed 6 nights broken up into two stays. Room 2 was good apart from the faulty shower screen that drenched the bathroom floor and it would have been nice to... More

This pension has the best location and is in walking distance to the beaches in San Sebastián and it is very close to the old part of town with its numerous pinxtos bars and restaurants. The rooms are a bit small - there is no air condition instead you can use a fan in the ceiling. Our room faced the... More

I chose this little pension because of recommendations (which are right on) and as one reviewer said, 'location'. In this case, location means on the very tip of the blocks leading out to the sea wall. That is my idea of ideal. The price is pitched perfectly for what one receives... a tiny pension up and away from the street... More

This is an awesome little pension. People were friendly, the room was really clean and comfortable and the location/view awesome. It was very convenient as well being on the edge of the old city.

This is a fantastic little spot located steps from the old city (and some of the best pintxos), but apart enough not to have the noise of the small streets. We had a lovely view of the water and a nice balcony facing it. The rooms are small but extremely clean. It was a surprise to even have a bathtub!... More

The sea view is marvellous for a very good price. The staff is really friendly and the room was clean and had good beds. The location is perfect, in the old town, just off the very touristic streets.

Hotel is very well located in a quiet part of the Parte Vieja. Many of the rooms, including hours, had views of the sea. This is definately not a luxury hotel but it is basic and clean. There aren't many places in San Sebastian where you can have a sea view room for 82 euros a night! Sara at reception... More

I have very mixed feelings about my experience here. It's in an area (parte viejo) that is generally very loud, but luckily it is a bit removed from the main areas, and it has windows that are quite well sound-isolated. Great, so far so good - looks better than a lot of the other options. The problem is that there... More

We booked 3 nights at this pension in April and paid 50euros deposit as requested but had to cancel late due to the volcanic ash flight disruption but did give 4 days notice. We rescheduled our trip for May and tried to re-book but the pension was full so we booked alternative accommodation with the Pension Edorta which was fantastic... More
