We booked this room at the last minute and got a great price, especially being in such a central part of San Sebastian. Conchie and Josu, who run it, were both very helpful and friendly, especially when I arrived a few hours earlier than the friend who booked the hotel. It was not a problem for them and checked me...

The city is awsome, good gastronomy and a great nightlife and the Pension Aldemar is beautiful, for sure the best place to stay in San Sebastian, very good located near all the cool places. Very clean and organized. And the staff are the best, very helpfully and friendly. I would definetly come back and recomend this place.

The rooms are very modern and the location could not be beaten; right next to the old town and also very close to the ocean promenade and biking trail. Joshua the person who runs the place could not have been nicer and more helpful. The only caveat is that the rooms do not have air conditioning; it wasn't a problem... More

What a great little place to stay. The staff--Josu and Conche- were amazing. The location is excellent and close to all the action of the historical city and walking distance to the beaches. My husband and I walked all the way to the palace and to the beaches in the evening. Our room was clean and cozy. Who stays in... More

This pension is acceptable, yet in general hotels in San Sebastian are not value for money. Unless you have a specific desire or reason to stay in San Sebastian, recommend staying outside the city, or somewhere equally as nice, such as Santander.

We stayed at Pension Aldamar for 4 nights. Pros & Cons: Cons: There were 3 of us in the room, which was a very tight squeeze. 3 twin beds plus probably 6 inches of space on either side. No air conditioning, which is fine, but they provided us with a fan which was nice. Plus there is a small balcony... More

Our stay here was lovely. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and location was perfect, right there in old town and a few blocks from the beach. The staff were polite and from the moment we walked in, the place had a good feel about it. The room was on the smaller side, but not too small for... More

Although the rooms are very comfortable the hotel itself is more like a hostel and at 99 Euro a night a pretty expensive one. When we checked in the guy on reception was very friendly and happy to give us advice on what to see and do in San Sebastian. We stayed in room one which is right next to... More

An excellent pension in a perfect location to explore the delights of San Sebastián. Our room, 05, looks out over the theatre and was spotlessly clean and a great base. Good facilities in the room meant we could use the fridge for our own wine as well as moving through the many pintxos places a stones throw away! Only regret... More
