Price: San Sebastian is really expensive, and to find this in such a good location at this price is a good deal.

Location: Central, and great for exploring the city. This is in the old town. Everything is within walking distance.

Standard: As other reviewers have mentioned, you need to be prepared that this is a pension, and not a hotel. It is clean, with shared bathroom(s), and the rooms contain a bed, a TV and a place to put your clothes. It is basic, but really all we needed.

Noice: You can hear people in the other rooms and on the street, but I guess that is what you get in such old buildings and with small, narrow streets. Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper.

Other: Helpful, English-speaking staff. You get a key, so you can come in as late as you wish.

This is a pension style accommodation so you need to have expectations in line with this level of hotel. It is cheap for the location and the location cannot be questioned for a stay in this beautiful little city.

The issue of noise is legitimate - the walls are thin, you can hear people walking around etc - however it is very very clean, people are respectful of the noise issue and for the price it is worth overlooking this one concern which is common in this style of accommodation anywhere

Our room was actually very large, plenty of room and it was a comfortable space to relax after a long day. The people running the hotel were very reserved but helpful when asked for assistance, perhaps they are a little shy when using English. There is visitor information in the hotel and you can get assistance for the usual tourist needs 24 hours a day which is great for such a small place.

The location is a very short walk to the water and right in the mix of the old town - stunning!

There is a little convenience store down stairs which is handy for everyday items and you will not need to use a taxi or any transport unless leaving the place to explore elsewhere

This is a good option and will not disappoint unless you are looking for a full service hotel

There is a lift which is not always the case!

There is wifi available free of charge as well.

2 minutes walk to a taxi when required fort he airport etc

We never thought we would ever risk a one star pension- but we took a chance based on a strong recommendation from well-travelled friends. Excellent position in the heart of the old town, spotlessly clean and spacious room and bathroom. 24hour reception and a manager (Oletz) who could not have been more helpful. WE had an early departure on the last day and the owner waited with us in the street to make sure the taxi arrived on time and we were safely on our way. How's that for service!

Stayed 4 nights in a double room with shared bathroom facilities. I had reservations about a shared bathroom but the place is very well maintained & the entire premises are squeaky clean at all times. I'd requested a quiet room with a double bed - the room was compact compared to a room with twin beds; our room overlooked the street & it was above a popular pintxos bar. Sleep quality was poor Friday & Saturday nights due to revellers. A good small 'supermarket' a few doors down for self-catering. Bakeries & a fabulous pasteleria within walking distance. And of course, pintxos bars abound!
An enjoyable stay in Donostia-San Sebastian. I would thoroughly recommend Pension Edorta for accommodation.

Room Tip: If you want room to move around, request a room with twin beds. If you want sleep, request a room that doesn't face the street.

The room was very clean. The shared bathroom also. It's not a luxury hotel but the quality of the service is very acceptable. But.... The big setback lies in the noise. Not necessarily in the street (if you have earplugs. Even if the windows are well isolated) but between the rooms themselves. The walls are very very thin. You hear everything in the conversations of the other room. And last but not least. People at the desk are a bit cold, not really welcoming and not really open to customer service. Still it's a good deal if you don't have too much money to spend in this very expensive city.
