“Lovely base, a home away from home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

We stayed in one of the really well kitted out apartments, modern decor, very clean and comfortable for 3 girls. Really enjoyed the few days we based ourselves here " it was home away from home" and the staff were fab and helpful. Very near to everything i.e. 5 mins from nearest beach, supermarket 2 mins away, plenty off fab food places nearby. 10/15 minute walk to the main gastro lanes. There is a bit of street noise and train noise but with earplugs this is not an issue and most of the time it was just a minor annoyance.

Stayed July 2013, traveled with friends

I stayed here after a work trip to San Sebastian - it's amazing for the price. (And I was coming from a much more expensive hotel!) The staff was incredibly helpful (and spoke excellent english, which was helpful for me), the room was super-clean and modern. I would recommend it to friends and would definitely stay there again if I'm back in town.

We stayed in June and had a great time weather brilliant. Hotel was just away from centre but still bars and shops. Room clean but what makes this hotel is the staff friendly and always smiling. Thanks for a great stay in a great place see you soon

Really clean rooms with modern furnishing. Helpful and friendly staff with lots of patience to our problematic payments.we were 12 people living in 3 rooms and having a great time there. Because its away from the old town it is quiet and calm during nights compared to the city centre. Excellent place to live in with lots of space, nice beds and great staff. All of us 12 people loved it.

Our room was very nice and it deserves the kudos it is getting. It was clean, well appointed and would definitely stay there again. The staff spoke broken English which was helpful. The only downside was that parking was not close (several blocks away). There was closer parking but it was full. They also were kind enough to store our baggage for a little more sightseeing before we left the City. Otherwise, a great pension to stay in.

Room Tip: Reserve parking to get a closer spot than we did (which was several blocks away).

This pension deserves the good reviews. We feel very safe, we slept well, the place is beyond clean.. and the welcome was overwhelming. For a busy boutique hotel - the people at the front desk treat you like you are special. Very helpful with information regarding on-going travel, like where to get a bus to France, or taxi to the airport. This has made our stay easy and relaxed. San Sebastian is a picture. Great food in little bars, good coffee and pastries, beautiful walking along the beach...and, on a practical note, a little bonus to find a laundromat across the street from the pension!

Stayed here with my mum after 2 night at the hotel on top of the hill. Had a bit of trouble finding it but that was more to do with me.
Very nice staff, good rates, clean, free wi-fi, a good base to explore the city, close to amenities. Bed was not super comfy. No problems.
