First off, I booked this location at the last minute on hotels.com. I saw the pictures on line and view and thought, "well maybe it could be as nice as its presenting itself." So I booked it. I booked three rooms, one for my parents, one for my cousins and one for myself. As soon as I booked it, I...

It's usually a good start to stay somewhere when the host at the check-in desk spends 10-15 minutes chatting and providing tips and information about their town. The rooms are quite basic and small, but the nightly rate is very reasonable and besides, when in San Sebastian, you'll really only want to be in your hotel room to sleep. This...

Situated right in the heart of the Old Town, Pension Ur Alde is a delight.

We had a good stay in the Old Quarter of San Sabestian. It's slightly removed from the noisy part so you won't find things too loud, yet close enough to be a pleasant short walk back from whichever 3 or 5 bars you've hit for the night! The room is clean and imaginatively done, which makes it a step up...

This was a pleasant little pension right in the heart of the old city. The room itself was clean and functional. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful.
