Views are very important to me. This pension has them in spades, even though it may not be the most luxurious. If you are only spending a few days in San Sebastian, this is the quietest, most scenic, and most reasonable place to stay in my opinion. Although the rooms themselves are on the smaller side, when you open the...

Unbelievable location as you are right at the edge of old town San Sebastián and you are a very short walk from both beaches. The room we stayed in had enormous windows with views of the ocean and playa Zurriola. Landers is incredibly friendly and so is the rest of the staff. You cannot beat the value to stay at...

This pension was the most wonderful surprise, with modern furnishings and bright airy rooms. We had the budget room and although cosy, it was still immaculately maintained and there was a small balcony for extra space. Our host was very welcoming and friendly. And despite the entire pension seeming quite small, we were never disturbed by any noise and had...

One of the highlights of our visit to San Sebastian was our gorgeous little pensione, Itxasoa - our hosts Ainara and Landers were fantastic, very helpful and the room we were given had a magnificent view of the ocean with a balcony overlooking the inlet and the main surf beach to our right... This pensione is situated so close to...

First, check-in. I've stayed at many high end hotels, and get the "well you're early but we will accommodate you" look or tone. I showed up at 11am for a 2pm check-in, and you would have thought I was on time. No comment, no attitude, just your room is ready and we will get you checked in. Then, the front...

We loved it here due to the location, views & hospitality. Firstly the staff were very welcoming, eager to help with phone calls & laundry where needed. Top marks. We stayed 6 nights broken up into two stays. Room 2 was good apart from the faulty shower screen that drenched the bathroom floor and it would have been nice to...

This pension has the best location and is in walking distance to the beaches in San Sebastián and it is very close to the old part of town with its numerous pinxtos bars and restaurants. The rooms are a bit small - there is no air condition instead you can use a fan in the ceiling. Our room faced the...

I chose this little pension because of recommendations (which are right on) and as one reviewer said, 'location'. In this case, location means on the very tip of the blocks leading out to the sea wall. That is my idea of ideal. The price is pitched perfectly for what one receives... a tiny pension up and away from the street...

This is an awesome little pension. People were friendly, the room was really clean and comfortable and the location/view awesome. It was very convenient as well being on the edge of the old city.

This is a fantastic little spot located steps from the old city (and some of the best pintxos), but apart enough not to have the noise of the small streets. We had a lovely view of the water and a nice balcony facing it. The rooms are small but extremely clean. It was a surprise to even have a bathtub!...
