This boutique pension is perched on the edge of the old city, directly across from the Mercado de la Bretxa. Enter on the ground floor and take stairs or elevator to the next level up, where most of the rooms are located. Our room was of moderate size and comfortable, and it featured a balcony with windows that could be... More

Pension Aldamar is in a fantastic location, but that is about where it ended for us. Our room was very small and next to the main entrance so heard all the night foot traffic come through. The room wasn't cheap so we were quite disappointed. Feel that when booked through Booking.com or Expedia you tend to get the lesser rooms.... More

Nice clean rooms, small balcony area overlooking street and a safe and fridge were welcome additions. Very central location and easy walking distance to all of the towns great pintxos bars. Well priced and good value for a 3 night stay.

We were really happy with our stay at Pension Aldamar. A little apprehensive when we were dropped off at a residential property but we didn't worry too much after seeing the signs of the property on the balconies above. After pushing the buzzer and being let into the property, it was a smooth check in process from there. The rooms... More

Our room faced a back alley, and the windows didn't open. We thought it was clean, until finding a pill on the floor and water bottle under the bed from previous guest. Be careful of the small step into the hallway with the rooms; I stubbed my toe so bad on the short stair/lip that my big toenail broke off!... More

Stayed two nights in May and were very impressed by the location and cleanliness. Our room faced the market, Bretxa, and it was impeccable. The bathroom was pretty big for European standards and there was plenty of room to move around. Our room was #9. You just need to contact them as soon as you arrive since they may be... More

I have mixed feelings about this place. The location is perfect for exploring the city, it's easy to find local parking, the room was very small but clean and the wifi was strong. However, there was no one at the front desk and it was difficult to get a hold of staff when needed. The room we were given (no.... More

If you're thinking of visiting San Sebastián for a weekend of sampling pintxos then Pension Aldamar is the perfect place to stay. It is a 30 second walk to the nearest pintxos bar, which come thick and fast as you enter the narrow streets of the old town. The welcome at Pension Aldamar was very friendly (the gentleman on reception... More

This hotel is situated on the edge of the old town. Ideal location, as its is a 2 min walk to all the pintxo bars but still away from the noise. The hotel seemed to have been recently renovated. It is on first floor of building but there is a very good lift if you don't want to take the... More

I stayed here 10 night. While Donostia ( Basque for San Sebastián) is small enough to walk almost anywhere, the location is great. It is right next to the boulevard and the street that has the most & best Pintxos bars. It is also next to the bridge to Gros that takes you right to the Kursaal (concert hall &... More
