We loved our stay at Pension Alameda! Theresa and her husband provided a very warm welcome when we arrived, as well as a detailed map and pointed out a few key spots. I had some lovely conversations with Theresa during our stay and she continued to provide recommendations for places to eat and see. She also strives to learn different... More

Located within walking distance from every amenity in the city centre. Spacious room. Economic 5 day stay. Extremely noisy. Windows don't isolate the noise coming from the very busy bar/pitxos street which are open until 5am. Our room was located less than 1meter away from owners kitchen and room, who were extremely active since 7:30am (paper thin walls). Aggressive response... More

This is a great Pension, right in the heart of the old town of San Sebastian. We stayed for 3 nights and couldn't have asked for more given the price vs location conundrum. We asked in advance for a quiet room, I'd rather have that than a view, given that we were out all day seeing things and on the... More

We had a lovely room. Spotlessly clean in an excellent location with air-conditioning for most of the night. Despite being in the centre of the old part, there was no noise (except from the pulley-actioned washing line outside the window- a drop of oil mightn't go astray!). The old-fashioned lift is something to see in itself. The owner, whilst speaking... More

I wouldn't stay here again. I felt more like I was an intruder in someone's house than I was in a 'hotel'. Owners live on the same floor. Casually walk in when they feel like it. They speak little English. The only good thing was location & fast wifi

This small boutique hotel is located on one floor of a building located in the heart of the old town. The rooms are very small but it had all we required. We slept comfortably and each room had a small balcony. The staff were also attentive although not 24 hours at reception.

We were two couples who turned up to view another pension in same building but were very impressed with this particular one, not only for the quality of the rooms but the welcoming reception we received from the proprietors. We spent two nights here and would certainly return again. We even got discount on car parking for that time, they... More

As we decided to use the enormous offer of bars in the center for our daily breakfast it was the perfect choice. The guesthouse is already at the border of the old town. Just going down from second floor where Alameda is in the building you find the first bar (Gott) only 30 meters away from the entrance. The owner... More

We found this hotel by looking online. It was very comfortable for the three nights we stayed. The most fun was finding it! The taxi dropped us off and sort of motioned across the square, where there were a lot of big buildings. We couldn't see it at all. Finally, we spotted the name on the second floor of a... More

Returning to San Sebastian after a 9 yr gap and were really looking forward to going back. It was a last minute squeeze in and the pension was just the job.....right in the centre of the action with tapas and pinxto bars within a stone's throw. The traffic was an absolute nightmare and the situation resolved by the pension having... More
