We found this an ideal base for exploring the town. It was just one block back from the sea. The accommodation was clean and well maintained with tea making facilities a good extra touch. Maria was extremely helpful with directions and recommendations of eating places. The lack of air conditioning was not a problem though it could be in hotter... More

Located in the city center just near to the La Concha beach, clean and with all the necessary to stay well. The staff is friendly. There are a lot of stores and also a supermarket nearby. We had a room with balcony with even ocean.

The pension is located behind the TRYP hotel if you are having difficulty finding it. Location is excellent easy to walk everywhere. Room is small. We had a room on the Main Street but when we closed the door and blind it was very quiet. You can here noise from the next room so recommend earplugs. The real star of... More

Clean (everyday cleaning plus change of bed and towels)and nice rooms, perfect location, we had a room with large balcony with even ocean view, helpful stuff. We have been with our small child with our additional bed for travel - and even the room was enough large. and good and reasonable price

This small Pension was a delight to stay in. They were very friendly and accommodating, it was immaculate and comfortable, handy to everything, but not too close to the action, which we wanted. Would highly recommend.

This pension is very adequate. Clean and relatively close to the old center of San Sebastian and very close to the beach. Comfortable small rooms on the upper floor of this downtown building. Lucky to have a nice balcony. Kind receptionist but they aren't present 24 hours of the day at this pension. Would recommend for the price due to... More

Great place to stay, rooms not large but adequate for a short stay. The only improvement could have been a small fridge to keep food and drinks cold. Clean and tidy and very short 2 min walk to the beach.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, and we were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is not only in a prime beach location, it is clean, comfortable, and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was well furnished, and the bed was quite cozy. Great location, great staff, great stop!

Set 1 street from the Beach, this Pension offers super clean and well appointed rooms. Modern bathrooms, security entrance with lift & really helpful staff. It is walking distance to all the attractions of San Sebastian and has plenty of Tapas & eateries nearby. A bonus is your private balcony & great Wi-Fi

The hotel is well located, comfortable and very clean. The tea kettle in the room was a nice plus. The staff were very helpful, with maps and tips about what too see and where to eat. We enjoyed seafood at La Mejillonería. Beach is near by. All around bargain. Would definitely return.
