What more do you want after a 14 hour journey, involving four trains, spanning three countries and traversing two world capitals, than a friendly smile with a "very nice to see you" welcome? You want a comfy bed, a cosy room and a great shower,,that's what you want. Aldamar offers all of that, as well as a location that is... More

This is very good value for money and yes, the rooms are a little small, but that's only a problem if you want to spend your whole time in your room! I promise you that in San Sebastián, you're unlikely to do so! After a warm welcome you won't see much of the staff team and you won't need to... More

We have fallen under the spell that is San Sebastion and the magic started as soon as we entered the large black doors of Pension Aldamar. This Pension was far more than we expected, exactly as described by Trip Advisor. The location, the Junior Suite we stayed in, the decor, the ambience, the comfort of the room, the cleanliness, the... More

recently refurbished, clean and bright. Rooms are not large and bathroom 'cosy' but great for short stay. Coffee machine located outside of room, no where for luggage but balcony is nice and rooms are very sound proofed. Ideal location tyo the old town and walking distance to everything. Very happy to have stayed here for 4 nights. Definitely recommend.

The Aldamar is on the first floor of an attractive building, formerly a well known restaurant. The location could not better, 5 minutes from some of the best restaurants and tapas bars in the old town. The rooms were spotlessly clean and there was an excellent shower. Don't be put off by the fact that there is no downstairs reception,... More

Location: Perfection! Very short walk to either beach and to all the pintxos bars and restaurants in the old town. Quieter than many of the streets nearby. Can't beat this location. Reception: Spoke excellent English and couldn't have been more welcoming or friendly. Happily sorted taxis for us when needed, promptly provided additional hangers when asked. Can't ask for better.... More

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

Stayed here for 3 nights! Perfectly situated for Parte Vieja and nearby Gros and not much further to La Concha! Room was dinky but comfortable and met all our needs! Clean, good shower and tip top F.O.H who gave us a bit of insider Pinxtos knowledge!! Would definitely return again!

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.
