We stopped at Pension Grosen for one nights on a touring holiday of Northern Spain. Is was difficult to find as the building looks like an office block and parking is virtually non exist ant to allow us to stop and look. I dropped off the ladies in our party with the cases and I then spent the next 30mins finding somewhere to park. Eventually found somewhere about half a mile away.
Eventually got back and the my wife had booked us into one of the 3 rooms. We tried to phone ahead to warn them when we would be arriving but did not get an answer. The lady booked us in told us it's the owner and he never answers his phone and he should put her number on the booking.
The room seemed to have been recently fully refurbished and was ver well done with good quality fittings. The room was small with not much space to get round the bed. Everything was very clean and we slept well.
The Pension was about 10 to 15 mins walk from the old centre which included part along the beach front.
We were provided vouchers for a local cafe to get breakfast the following morning. The cafe was around 200m away and was due to open at 8.30. We wanted to get on the road early to get our next location so got there just before in case they opened up early. We had to wait until 8.40 before it opened and then he had to set up. There was no fresh bread delivered so we were offered toast, jam, orange juice and coffee. It all took an age and we wish had never bothered as even with this limited choice we did not get served until after 9.00.
The pension was reasonable value and San Sebastián was fantastic.
