“A very nice place”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Excellent location, close to the beach and the old city. The room was basic, but very clean, quiet and safe. Wireless connection was ok. The room had TV, fridge and microwave. Free coffee and tea in the reception. Across the street was El mercado de San Martin and Fnac. Would stay there again.

Thank you so much Trip Advisor! thanks to you I found this wonderfully clean pension (spanish version of a bed and breakfast, only without the breakfast). The proprietor was so nice. We had a key so we could come and go. The rooms were immaculately clean, with little patios onto a quiet courtyard. And it's only a block from the beach. YAY! had a great time!

I stayed at Pension Urkia in January 2004. All the facilities were very comfortable and clean. The first night I got a room with a balcony which happened to be very noisy due to the reconstruction of the market just across the street. But as it was low season and many rooms were available, I was offered a smaller room facing the back of the building, which was great. It was darker than the other room but it was very quiet. Unfortunately they don´t accept credit cards. The location is superb, close to the Cathedral, the beach and the old town. Bars and supermarkets are at hand. I would definitely stay again, highly recommended.
