You step out of this Pension into the heart of bustling pintxo-bar-land, and yet you're only minutes from the beautiful beach. It's small but with cool modern decor and delightful staff. I cannot fault it...who needs four star hotels???

This place was a wonderful place to stay for 4 nights in San Sebastian. Fantastic location in the old town and minutes away from the beach and an amazing selection of bars and restaurants. OK so it's just a room and a bathroom but these guys have got their act together. A simple breakfast for €1 at their nearby restaurant... More

Bearing in mind I thought I'd booked the Hotel rather than the Pension, I was prepared to be disappointed but it turned out better than expected. Good points: it is situated exactly where we wanted to be near the bars, shopping and beach; the room was clean with good a/c and free wi-fi; the staff were very helpful and accommodating... More

We stayed at this lovely pension in the heart of Donostia old town in mid June and loved every minute of our visit to the Basque country. The hotel is in the pedestrian area but only a minute walk from the bus stop and, even though all the buzzing pintxos bars are on the doorstep, we had no problem with... More

Great bits: location, cleanliness, shower and lovely, welcoming staff. Poor bits: very poor soundproofing,particularly impacting on the two rooms very near reception; one pillow the width of the bed, not ideal for two people sharing.

Good location and a very friendly and helpful staff. Frankly I'm surprised that this is only a two star hotel. So I'm going to go ahead and give it one more for a total of ⭐️⭐️⭐️'s. Our room was spotless and modern. Adding better directional bedside reading lights would be a nice improvement. This hotel is a great value in... More

Our family of three stayed at the hotel for two nights (March 19/20). I booked this hotel based on the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. As we left my husband said "we better write a review for them, this was a great place to stay". We travel a lot and he has never said this before! The... More

I stayed here with a friend as we were visiting for one night. I booked it based on the price and the excellent location in the old town. We arrived early on a Sunday morning before check in time. The gentleman on reception was very friendly. We stored our bags and there is complimentary coffee and drinks. There is a... More

Best location in town and a real warm welcome! Good (spanish) breakfast included. A big room with a big bathroom, cosy warm (we are here in winter)! Excellent WiFi. Good value for money. We certainly will come back!

They contacted me by email in the first place to confirm my booking, which is reassuring, and when I arrived they made me feel so welcome! They explained how everything worked. The rooms are so nice, and new, and very clean! I wish I had more time to enjoy the room! The Pension is just behind the city hall (ayuntamiento)... More
