I found this place via Lonely Planet's Spain guide after many of the pensiones in San Sebastián's old town were booked. I was not disappointed at all! I don't think we had a better value for our money at any other place we stayed during our two weeks (and five stops) in Spain.

The room was clean, the shower was great, and the front desk attendant was extremely helpful. Also, it's only a couple blocks from the beach.

Request a room with an arch for more ambiance, although these are street-facing, so they might be a little louder on the weekends.

Highly recommend it.

Very good location in the center of San Sebastian. Close to Kursaal and Zurriola beach, walking distance to the old city. Close to lots of restaurants and bars. Beautiful decorated and spacious rooms. Very clean. Probably one of the best places to stay in San Sebastian.

Clean modern room provides towels so don't need to bring yours.
Stayed 3 nights.
Comfortable bed and good shower.
Does what it says on the tin, great value for money.
Great location.
TV in room about 30 channels
Taxi rank outside but you won't always find a taxi at it, look up the perpendicular street for another taxi rank. Visit Bar Ramuntxo nearby for some nice pintxos.

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Pension to find it had an elevator. We usually only use it for transporting luggage to and from the accommodations. The Pension was located on the second floor and our room overlooked the street. We had french doors that opened wide to provide a view directly down the street that t'd onto the one the Pension was on. The staff were very friendly and spoke English which was helpful as our Spanish is rusty. The rate was ok at 95 EU per night but the exchange got us and it worked out to $133 CAD per night. Not too bad for a big city. We were easy walking distance to a number of restaurants, the beach and the metro. The room was a little small for our luggage as my large suitcase did not fit in the closet. Also, it was very hot and no fan was available for the room. The lobby was air conditioned but not the room.

We stayed here 3 nights and have nothing bad to say about this place. Rooms were super modern and clean. Check-in was easy and friendly. Internet was fast. Located in GROS, which has a local flavor (like it much more than the touristy areas). 5 minutes from the beach.
