This pension is exactly what we needed for our stay in San Sebastian. It is quiet and in a great location. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is great. There is tea and coffee, a little library, fridge etc in the common area. Easy to access the pension and the staff were helpful. Great Pintxos near by. Overall...

Stayed for two nights on a trip with my husband. The price was cheap compared to the area but the room was pretty cute and quaint and I thought the price matched what you would pay for. The location was very good and the girl at the front desk was lovely and had some great recommendations for the surrounding area....

Well located on quiet street in Gros, 5 minutes to walk to the beach and easy walk over the river to Cento and Parte Vieja. Small but beautiful room. Ok beds and bed sheets. For double bed they have one long pillow which is too high and not comfortable, there are alternatives available in the room. Complimentary drinking water, small...

Very good choice in San Sebastian. You can't find a better location:just in the center of the old town. The accomodation is not expensive in comparison with other options in the city. The room is big and clean equipped with microwave,fridge and coffe-maker. The bathroom is spacious and very clean too. I would recommend this hotel definetely

We stayed in Pension Altair for 2 nights and loved it! The hotel was perfect for us- a ten/fifteen min walk to the old town which we love and is also surrounded by shops, etc and there is a super easy to get to car park just a 5/10 min walk away- parking in San Sebastian is tricky so this...

The hotel is very well located just minutes away from the new town centre and beach by foot. The staff were super helpful and nice and called the airline for us because our luggage got delayed and gave us some superb food recommendations. The rooms are newly renovated and of good size for people not interested to stick at the...

We booked an apartment in Pension Altair as some friends recommended us the place. The location is perfect as it is a quiet area but very handy to access Gross beach or the Old town. I have to say that we loved the apartment itself, very classy and clean. The girls at the reception gave us many good places to...

We booked this hotel seven months in advance, as we were coming during a holiday weekend and knew that the places in our budget would book up quickly. Two days before we were to check in, we were notified by Booking.com that the hotel had just told them they would have their electricity turned off for up to 4 hours...

This little pension is just across the bridge from the Centre and Old Town of San Sebastián, just perfect walking distance. They have an arrangement with a nearby secure car park, just 13€ a day, so perfect for a city trip. The rooms are big enough, with excellent beds, bathrooms etc. modern furnishings, colour schemes etc, very restful taupes and...

I can't rave about this place enough!! The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, the room was beautiful with the most amazing window, and for the price, I have nothing bad to say about it. Honestly, if people are going to complain about this place, then I just don't know what they would expect for that price. I thought it...
