Overpriced - Ugly - Noisy - old used furniture - small room For a broken traveler its could be OK if you negociate the price. They asked us e87 for the night, a rip-off for this place

The location for the pension is fantastic. We were a 10 minute walk away from the Old Town etc. My husband and I went to San Sebastien for a short honeymoon and were on a tight budget. As our honeymoon overlapped with an annual festival in San Sebastian we weren't exactly spoilt for choice in terms of accommodation. This place...

When your instinct tells you "No" but the rest of San Sebastian is booked to the hilt because of a Jazz Festival then needs must, but frankly never again when it comes to this pension. When I called to make the booking the receptionist was honest about the choice of rooms in that those overlooking the street C/San Martin would...

We booked a room here due to the proximity to the beach. It was really close and reasonably priced at the time. I should have known! When we arrived, the owner almost gave our room away even though I notified her more than once we were going to come in late. The room was so small. We could not put...

I didn't look for reviews of this property until a week before we left, and they made me nervous until I read the German reviews elsewhere. I will prefice this review by saying I have been traveling to Europe for years and do so about 3 times a year. We are a 30 something couple traveling for vacation. The Pension...

We booked the hotel for a special weekend combining 4 friends birthdays. We booked the ENTIRE hotel out of season for 30 of us. Our group consisted of proffesionals between 30-40years old. From the minute we got there the staff were rude and insulting. When we checked in, the first 3 people got their heads chewed off for talking "too...

I have stayed in two other excellent pensions, the Urkia and La Perla (both near the cathedral - on the pedestrian street), but they have only 10-12 rooms, and must be booked up to six months in advance. Since my first three choices were full (three months in advance), I tried the Donostiarra. It was just passable. The first room...

For the price of a room I would rate this Hotel as being very good value as each room comes en-suite and it is very central ie: 5 minutes from the excellent beach Playa de la Concha. The rooms are cleaned daily and the bed linnen changed regularly. As I have said for the price it is very good value.

“Room no. 6 is great with a cosy seating area and facing the street! We loved it! Try not to go for the standard category rooms if you want a little bit of space. But the medium category is just fine with an extended balcony or seating area.”
