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

We stayed here for four days right next to the old town and just a short stroll to the best Pintxos bars. The beaches and shopping district were also an easy walk from the Aldamar. The room was well appointed with a small balcony and it can be noisy at night but much quieter with the doors closed. If you... More

The pension is a new one-storey conversion of a beautiful old historic building nestled right between both beaches in San Sebastián. Downtown bars and restaurants on the same block and to the northwest. We booked a south facing room with a comfy double bed looking over the main tourist strip. Bathrooms are basic but clean, hair dryer included and fresh... More

We stayed in June for a week in this lovely hotel. The staff were all really helpful and friendly; the location was central, convenient to both beaches and the Old Town; the apartments are very modern and clean; there was even complimentary bottles of cold water waiting in the minibar, and free access to a nice coffee machine!

Pension Aldamar was conveniently located within walking distance to all the beautiful attractions, lots of choice for eating destinations close by. Yosuf was cheerful and most helpful. The advantages of staying in the pension is that it is like having your own apartment with your own private access. Felt like a local!

We stayed two nights in San Sebastián at the Hotel Aldamar. Great location just a block away from the old town with the great tapas bars and one block from the seafront. Clean room,great staff, free Mimi bar with water and soda. Parking garages nearby and you can get a discount at the hotel.

Located 15 min walk from station, one block back from river and close to food areas of San Sebastion. Josu was very helpful with checkin and any queries we may have had. Very central position close the action and beach.
