“Basic but done really well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The receptionist in pension la mar greeted us like a member of the family and was a genuinely lovely woman, the hotel is basic but every thing I'd very clean and well laid out. The location is perfect very central but not noisy at night, great all round expierence and great value.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This is a pleasant place to stay in the centre of Castro Urdiales, convenient for the beaches and the harbour. The room was simply furnished, comfortable and clean.

The elderly receptionist had made a mistake with my booking and thought it was on a completely different date. However this wasn’t an issue and another room was available.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

My friend and I stayed at this Hostal July 16-18th, 2013. It was a great experience. The staff was extremely helpful, nice and ready to attend out needs. The location can't be better: right one block from the water front but in a quiet place. They keep it spotless, beds are very comfortable and so clean! It is also very secure, it has a security door to enter the building and there is someone available for costumers 24/7. Castro Urdiales is one of the best locations in Cantabria, great beaches, ancient history, very friendly inhabitants, interesting archeological sites, and close to major tourist attractions like Bilbao, with great access via public transportation.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2007

We stayed in this hostal for one night in September 07 (double room 37 EUR). It is on the main shopping street one block (max 50 m) from the harbour which made it a good place to stay location wise.

The room and bathroom was clean but there was a permanent and strong (chlorine type) smell in the room. It was also quite noisy.

We would not stay here again even though it was quite a cheap place. The village of Castro Urdiales was great however.
