This cute little pension, more of a hostel than a hotel, was in the perfect location for exploring San Sebastian. Just inside the old city, we could easily access both the new and old quarters as well as the beach, which was heavenly. We had a room right next to the reception area which has already been acknowledged in other...

The location is perfect and this pension provides the necessities. The rooms are small, as well as the bathroom but it's doable and worth it to spend less than the pricier places in expensive San Sebastián. The hotel staff were extremely helpful; providing recommendations and helping us book reservations. Only complaint would be noise, not from outside but inside the...

This cheap pensione in the hear of the old town is perfect for exploring San Sebastian. The rooms are xmall and clean and even though it is in the main tourist area we found that we weren't bothered by noise. The staff were great and it's a perfect place to stay if you are on a budget.

Nice, clean room. Staff friendly and welcoming. Our only problem was construction nearby that started at 6am but not the hotels fault. Great location in the Old Town with bars and restaurants everywhere!

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
