“Perfect location, great host, nice clean rooms”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Location was excellent, really close to La Concha beach and a short walk through the old town to the surf beach. Inaki is lovely and very helpful. We had room 1 which we would recommend - we had a double room with bathroom and a cute little closed-in balacony. Great option if you are travelling on a budget.

My family spent two nights at Pension Regil and we loved it! As other reviewers mentioned, the location is great, the price is fantastic, and Iñaki is a wonderful and kind host! Everything is very clean (and smells nice too!). An added bonus was the free WiFi, which we didn't expect.

If you are driving, there are several choices for underground parking nearby (costs around 20 Euro for 24 hrs).

We'll definitely remember Pension Regil and Iñaki fondly!

We spent two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it.

A few points:
Location - it is a very short walk to La Concha beach and close to the old town and sights we wanted to see, so we really were happy with the location. Since it was not in the center of town, it was also not noisy and we were able to go out eating and drinking in the noisy section and then walk back a little to the nice quiet area. We also felt very safe here.
Cleanliness - the pension is kept very clean with the cleaning lady coming in every day and cleaning the place thoroughly. You can even see the sheets and towels being hung up to dry. Again, we were very happy with this.
Friendliness - Inaki is perfect for this job. He warmly greeted us upon arrival and every time we came or left, he was around smiling in case we needed anything. He was very helpful with tips for places to eat and things to see. He has a soothing effect when he speaks to you and we really did enjoy talking to him.
Price - you really shouldnt bother looking for anything better in this price range. This is unbeatable in my opinion.

The only item that may be seen as a negative is that the bathroom is pretty small. When two people shower, the bathroom can get a little messy with water on the floor - more of a pain for the cleaning lady actually. Again, we didnt see this as a problem but others may. We had a room in the back of the building and so had a nice terrace overlooking the courtyard.

If I were to go to San Sebastian again, would stay here without a doubt.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back face the courtyard and have a terrace and are quiet.

Fantastic budget hotel in a great location close to La Concha, shopping areas and the old town. All staff are pleasant and Inaki the owner is exceptional ... very friendly and goes out of his way to be helpful. The hotel feels safe and the rooms are kept spotlessly clean. Will definitely stay there again.

Pension Regil was exactly what we were looking for. It is in a fantastic location for the price, close to the beach and a very short walk to the old town. We stayed for 2 nights, one in a flat a short distance from the pension and one night in the Pension itself. The owner Inaki was as friendly and helpful as others on here have said. He took the time to give us lots of recommendations for things to do and for the best bars to get pintxos. The room in the pension was compact but with a nice little balcony and both the rooms were very clean. I would definitely recommend this place.

Pension Regil is a great place to stay. Our room was very clean and nice and quiet. The owner, Inaki, is super friendly and is always there to give advice about where to go and what to do. The internet connection was fast enough to watch a movie online one night and the room was thoroughly cleaned every day. The pension is very well situated very near to La Concha beach, main shopping areas and the old town. We loved our time at Pension Regil and will come back. The pension was better than some hotels. As my girlfriend would say for the girls: you can walk barefoot, towels and bed sheets are very clean. It's also nice and safe. Tiny romantic balcony to drink wine on. If you forget to take something to the beach you can be back in 2 min, if you go crazy when shopping you will have 2 min to drop the bags and if you are craving for pintxos and some wine in the old town then you will need 5 min to get there. Also, Inaki is sweet and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for the little sea view!
