We stayed at this lovely little hotel (only 10 rooms!) end of May for 3 nights. We couldn't fault the location. Right near the old town and Pinxtos bars and also walking distance into the new town and also the beach. We had a slightly larger room and balcony. The complimentary water and soft drinks was an added bonus. The... More

This pension is located within a block of some of the best tapa bar streets in the town. Vibrant, happening, little cafes that get mobbed each evening. It is also between two of San Sebastián's best beaches and within walking distance of both. To reach the facility you buzz an intercom to be allowed in the building and then either... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pension Aldamar - located very centrally in the Old Town of San Sebastian. Staff spoke English and were very friendly. The rooms have been recently refurbished and the bathrooms are new and very clean. Highly recommended.

Fine and clean rooms at top location. Too bad the street is quite noisy, u what would you expect. More troubling was the leaking aircon and the other guests usage of a very noisy coffee machine in the alley... Kind service, but poor knowledge of English.

Location is great in the heart of the old town. The pension is one the first floor of a building. My room had tiny look over. The decor is updated but still more ikea quality. Wifi is free and excellent. The shower was very enjoyable but water leaked in the bathroom everywhere. Roberto was helpful but there is no one... More

We booked Pension Aldamar as we wanted somewhere that was close to the old town & beaches. The location was superb being housed in the first floor of an old building opposite the Bretxa market & right on the edge of the old town & its many pintxos bars. It was also only a 10 minute walk from la Concha... More
