We stayed one night in the studio apartment/loft. The pension was very easy to find. It's in a great location close the beach & old town. 5 minute walk to beach & 7 minute walk to old town and restaurants. Ours was a large, clean room with a king sized bed, a pull out sofa, a little kitchen with refrigerator... More

We wandered about trying to find the building (opposite the supermarket and behind the bus shelter) but we were glad we did. Great welcome from the owner José and a nice studio room with a big comfortable bed (the view from the balcony was the back of other buildings but you can't have everything). We were central to the town,in... More

I have been staying here for years - it has an amazing location, extremely nice staff, very clean and quiet. It provides good value for a normal cost. I recommend it to everyone who's looking for a nice simple place to stay.

Pension Urkia provides good value for the relatively modest cost. The floors are hardwood and the beds comfortable. The level of cleanliness was excellent. The bathroom had an older tub/shower and while not luxurious was very clean and perfectly functional. The location is about 2 block from the splendid Playa Concha and about 6 blocks from the old city where... More

We stayed here for 7 nights while doing a Spanish language course at Lacunza language school. Apart from disturbance one night due inconsiderate neighbours (that could happen anywhere) we found this an excellent place to stay. Juan is an excellent host and can give you lots of tips on things to do in SS. We came by motorbike and parked... More

I thoroughly endorse the excellent ratings for this Pensione. We found this accommodation barely 24 hours prior to arrival and Juan responded immediately to our email request which,I found unusual in Europe. Our room was clean and comfortable and at the rear of the building where we experience little noise. A printed list of some dozen or so recommended bars... More

We came into San Sebastian not having a room reserved anywhere previously (and it was during the town festival.. hardly anything available), Juan was super accommodating and gave us one of the last rooms available (at a great price too). They're situated almost in the center of everything.. 2 blocks from one of the coolest beach settings I've ever seen.... More

Couldn't think of a better location to stay in SS. Close to the beach and only a five minute walk to the old town. The room was clean, cool and spacious complete with a handy fridge and a powerful shower! The owner Juan was a great host and gave us some excellent tips for exploring the city. With more to...

We stated here 4 nights in July. Wonderfully situated location close to the beach, old town, and market. The management is extremely friendly. Unfortunately, Juan - who speaks English - was away during our stay, but the other women (after finding a guest to translate our needs) were extremely helpful. Even going so far as to do our laundry (at... More
