my wife and I arrived in San Sabastian at mid-day, having been misinformed about the bus schedule from Bilbao, (courtesy of the Lonely Planet), the evening before. (we were scheduled to spend three nights at the Pension Edorta, but the mishap cut it down to two.)
at San Sabastian, the cabby from the bus stop said that he couldn't drop us at the pension, since the last stretch was impassable. so we took the bus instead, and found out that the calles at the seaside at San Sabastian are narrow alley-ways. We walked the last three blocks with our luggage. (annoying, but our mood was about to change for the better.)
we found that the small, cozy pension, which we had booked, was two buildings in from the beach promenade. we were led up to our room on the second floor by a very polite attendant, who apologized for our mishap with the buses. they later took half off of the previous night's stay, which we felt was more than fair.
to get to the point, the room was just BEAUTIFUL, with a small balcony overlooking the delightful mini-street, which dead-ended at the promenade. the rest of the calle was occupied by pintxos bars, small stores, and other pensions. the interior walls were stone, the floors were tile, and the colors were festive. the bed was comfy--stay on the upper floors to avoid late -night pintxos crawl noise.
bottom line--great stay--dying to return.
