“Gem of a hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

Just returned from a long weekend in DSS. Absolutely delighted with the location, amenities, cleanliness and standard of this hotel. The owners are friendly, helpful and very considerate.. We were right in the centre of everything in the town but in a room that gave us absolute peace and quiet at night. . The hotel was perfect for needs.

Location of the pension is perfect, next to the old quarter and at the boulevard. Clean and quiet rooms and very friendly and helpful hosts. Our room (nr 8) was relatively small with a window on the patio, the bed was alright. Dehumidifier.
Only minor is that the nearby public parking is very costly (€24/day), so loose your car if you plan to stay a bit longer.

I've stayed at the Pension Alameda many times - in fact I never think of staying anywhere else in San Sebastian. As the other reviews say, it really is the best location you could get, in a pretty, lively square in front of the seafront promenade and right in the old town. This does mean it can get noisy on weekend evenings, but the double-glazed windows shut out most of the noise. The lovely couple who run the pension couldn't be more friendly or helpful, so it feels like your 'home from home'. The rooms are perfect for the price - a good size, very clean, with bathrooms and comfortable beds. No frills or extras but when you're in San Sebastian you won't be spending much time in your room - you'll want to be out exploring!

Room Tip: Splash out on room number 4 for a great view

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a week on holiday and I have to say that the location for the price couldn't have been better.
We were a 5 minute walk from the beach, right on the main street, with the old town outside the window.
Obviously, it gets noisy at night but once the window is closed it was ok and we slept soundly.
The rooms are impeccably clean and very comfortable and while the Pensione doesn't offer breakfast, there are coffeeshops and bars a stones throw away that do.

The owners are really lovely and accomodating and I have no reservations in recommending this to anyone.

The Pension Alameda is in the most perfect location you could ask for in San Sebastian! It is on the street that would be considered the dividing line between the old town and the new town, so its right in the middle of everything! The place was very clean and the beds were quite comfortable. The people who owned the pension were very friendly and spoke minimal english, but enough to get by. If I am able to return to San Sebastian in the future, I will stay here again for sure!
