Ideally located near Concha Beach as well as the city centre, this hotel has great access to the local tapas bars and provides smart, simple accommodation. There is a car park a 5-minute walk from the property. Sleep well in the bright and airy rooms with smart, wooden floors. All the Alameda’s rooms have private, en-suite facilities. Keep up to date or research the area with the free, wireless internet connection. The accommodation offers a Nespresso coffee machine upon request and for a surcharge. An iron and ironing board are available. The Alameda is a fantastic base for you to explore the delights of San Sebastian. Stroll through the historic centre and browse the shops, bars and restaurants where you can try typical Basque cuisine and authentic Spanish tapas. Walk a little further down to the golden beach where you can have a refreshing dip in the sea or simply enjoy the views with a coastal walk.
The shower was clean.
There was no isolation and we could hear all the noises.
Excellent and friendly staff/owners (helped by my own level of Spanish, but manager spoke English OK). Location was sort of accessed from the pedestrian walkway to the old town and close to the beach and shops. Room was adequate, bathroom OK with good water temperature and pressure and area generally quiet, albeit with potential for noise from other guests in the morning. Close to restaurants and lots of places within a minute for breakfast.
If you have a car, even Sat Nav/GPS gets confused by the one-way road system of the city and the hotel took some finding - eventually I chose to traverse the pedestrian mall, the wrong way, just to get to the door. The manager did explain the best way to get to the best car park nearby without paying too high a rate and how to navigate the one-way system. It's really preferable to park the car in the nearby underground car park and walk to the hotel/pension.
I liked where was located, very close to the old city and right on the bus lines. Most of all I like the owners they were very pleasant and accommodating.
The rooms were somewhat small but still comfortable. There was no food or coffee served, but these things were available right outside the pension.
Great location for seeing San Sebastian. It was situated in the middle of the old town and within walking distance of everywhere. My room was quite clean and Teresa our host was perfect. She helped me for everything. I stayed there for 6 nights as an alone woman. Pension was quite safe and I felt like I am Teresa's friend staying at her home.
clean rooms. convenient location. municipal parking lot across the street. all close
difficult to find a hotel. No information about the location
The location of the hotel is great, you can walk to the town beach in less than 5 minutes, the rooms are a good size, beds comfy and the couple who run the place are lovely, very helpful
Perfect location between the old town and the shopping area, and right beside the cafe and bar area of the avenue Alameda. Very friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately, Donostia/San Sebastian generally seems to be very much more expensive than anywhere else in northern Spain, which is why it gets low marks for value for money.
Excellent location, hospitable owners- very friendly. Clean and comfortable.
This was one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Sure, it's a Pension, so all you expect is basically a bed, toilet and shower, but the whole ambience and location are tremendous. Teresa, the manager, is a lovely, kind lady who obviously really wants you to feel welcome. I would give it 11 out of 10 if I could!
I liked the family context and the owners kindness. I liked also the hotel is close to everything in the city; beach, shopping, center...
Maybe the relation between price and quality.
