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.

We booked via Agoda who failed to pass on our request for a double room, so we ended up with a twin room on our honeymoon at this pension, which was a little disappointing. I would suggest confirming exactly what type of room you are receiving with the pension directly when you book, as they advertise their availability as "double... More

Spent two very noisy nights at Pension Aldamar. Very good location but the rooms are warm so you must sleep with the window open and thus the noise!! Clean room and a friendly staff but not necessarily overly helpful. The beach is a short walk away which is nice but you do have to walk about 7-8 minutes to grab... More

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.
