“Great little pension in San Seb”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Fany is great value when staying in San Seb, especially during the high season, when prices can get out of control. It is situated in the new town, and about a 10 minute walk to the old town, super close to the shops though. The staff there were great, not a lot of english, but they were super friendly and very welcoming. I had booked a room for a single with private facilities, and when I arrived I given a massive room with 3 beds, which was great. The room was basic, nothing too flashy, but was clean and comfortable. 5 minute walk to the beach also. Cannot be happier with my stay at Pension Fany!

Pension Fany is a great value and perfectly located, if you are arriving by train. It is near to and between the two train stations in San Sebastian, and its easy to find since it's only a block away from a large cathedral. Our room was comfortable and clean. We had a ball on our tapas crawl and Fany helped us find a laundromat (it was raining and we had been touring for more than two weeks.)

The pension takes the whole upper floor of a handsome building very close to the cathedral. Although it's a short walk from the main grid of bars and restaurants we found this an advantage as it's relatively quiet. Anyway, there are plenty of non-touristy local bars in the vicinity. The room - while not luxury - was certainly clean and well kept and the owner, despite a slight language barrier, friendly and accommodating. Would recommend, particularly for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms facing the street - they're not noisy and it's nice to look out on...

Situated a 5 min walk from the local railway station and 7 min walk from the large railway station. We didn’t need to take any public transport in San Sebastian and this pension was very close to the beach and in turn all the eateries and tapas bars. We paid 55 euro a night and got a triple room, not that we needed the extra single bed but it came in handy for clothes! We opted for the shared bathroom, and it was always clean and never had an issue waiting to use it. Fany (the host) was friendly and helpful and often signing to romantic Spanish music. Our room had a little balcony and we could open up the door and shutters to let the breeze in. This place is basic, clean, and central. Fany gives you beach towels if you’re off to Las Playas for the day. There is a little supermarket right across the street where you can pick up a picnic for the beach. We recommend staying here based on price, security, location and cleanliness.
