We had a very nice stay in Bekain. Terese made us feel very welcome. The room was a little dark for our liking but as most of the buildings are old in that part of town it is understandable. The room was clean and very quite and the beds very comfortable. We spent two very nice days and nights in...

Room was a little on the small side but didn't intend to spend all day in room, AC was good, bed was comfortable,hairdryer on wall in bathroom and it was very central to shops and beach, just a short walk to the old town. Lady on front desk was very pleasant with us. Reasonable place for a short stay.

I am quite unable to relate to the previous reviews which are quite old and so I can only assume that there has been a makeover and change of proprietor. The Spanish lady who is running the pension and appears to reside upstairs on site is charming and helpful and speaks better English than our Spanish. The location is ideal,...

Don't have anything to do with this place. They are thieves. I booked accidentally online and didn't realize that they take a deposit. I had to cancel my entire trip a month before it was scheduled for work-related reasons. I cancelled all the other hotels (there were about 5) with NO problems -- only this one had taken an advance...

My experience here could not have been worse. The woman running the place was terribly rude and inconsiderate. The bed (promised to be a double) was a single and very uncomfortable. We ended up going across the street the second night to another place called Hostal Bahia which was much much better. I highly recommend that one instead.

Pension bikain is in a good location. About 100 meters from the beach and a 5 minute walk to the old town. However with price we paid it was nothing special. When we arrived our room had stains on the sheets which was a bit disgusting. The lady at the reception speak little English and is very hard to communicate...

There is too many bad things to say about this pension. I stayed in mid July 2012, and would advise anyone not to stay there. The room couldn't have been smaller, as well as the bathroom. The women running the place started off being very nice, but any contact there after was she was rude and very unhelpful. It is...

Looked at every accommodation in San Sebastian before booking this pension so was based on price and location. Quite pricey for what is offered but there is nothing cheap in san Sebastian so..... The location is good,just nicely placed between beach and river and everything well within walking distance. Room and bathroom cleaned every day (we stayed 4 nights) but...

Came back from what was supposed to be a city break in San Sebastian and have to say that staying in this pension was the worst mistake we could have made. Room was tiny with no windows, the owner, Teresa, was not considerate of the guest's privacy, no breakfast included and a very expensive price tag for what it offered....

I agree with the previous review. There are only 5 rooms in the pension and although they are clean and well maintained - they are also tiny. We may have just got the worst room. But even if you were in a bigger room the pension is above a busy Italian Restaurant so it's extremely noisy at night. Also whoever...
