What a wonderful time! As others have said, the location is superb, on the edge of the old city, so a little quieter, but so central to everything. The rooms are comfortable and pretty, with little extras like small candies and coffee cups; there's a Nespresso machine in the reception area. The hosts were gracious and helpful, and provided a...

Absolutely loved this place! Great location central to everything. Urai and Sara were wonderful. They updated the board daily with weather, events, helping us schedule a cider house tour, and helping us get on the right bus. Cute little touches in the room like a food map and their recommended places in the city made this an absolutely delightful place...

Saray and Unay are so friendly and welcoming when we stayed at Pension Balerdi. They helpfully provided tips on what we can do to fill up our day - they even prepared a map highlighting some of the places that we might want to visit, as well as breakfast, lunch, and pintxo places. The place is clean and comfortable and...

Since I arrived I was happily welcomed. This place is extremely clean, good linens and towels and excellent quality sleep. The shower had great pressure and the owners gave me tips on local pintxos places ( and what to order) as well as impressive hikes. The location can't be better, really fantastic.

2016年10月に4泊しました。部屋はモダンで清潔、シャワーの水圧・水温も良かったです。場所は旧市街の入口なので、バルホッピング後に歩いて帰るにも近くて最高でした。目の前はマルシェなので朝は新鮮な果物を買ったり、マルシェ内のスーパーでお土産なども買えてとても便利でした。しかし、このペンションの一番のおすすめはホストのUnaiとSarayの素晴らしいホスピタリティです。ゲタリアへの行き方を尋ねたら、バスの時刻表だけでなくバス停の地図と写真まで印刷してくれたり、ボルドーへの電車の時間や乗り継ぎも詳しく調べてくれたりと、何を尋ねてもこちらが期待する以上の情報を提供してくれました。24時間受付に人がいるのも安心できたし、またサンセバスチャンへ行く機会があれば絶対に泊まりたいペンションです。とにかくオススメです!Thank you Unai and Saray - you were wonderful hosts and your pension was amazing!

From the moment we reached the reception desk, the effervescent personalities of the hosts stood out. Within minutes we had received a succinct introduction to the city along with their custom made map with recommendations for breakfast, restaurants and pintxos bars. Saray and Unai never failed to have a considered and illuminating answer to any question we put to them...

I stayed in Pension Balerdi with my girlfiriend for two nights in Aug. The owners were amazing, really friendly, knowledgeable about the area and helpful without being any bit intrusive. The room was perfect as was the location in the heart of the old town and really close to the beaches etc. We'll definitely be back!

We loved this pension! The couple who run it are super friendly, energetic and really lovely people. They make you feel really at home. The rooms are lovely; nicer than the pictures, really feel fresh, new and well designed. They give you free coffee outside and it's just a really friendly place.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pension Balerdi guest house is located in the entrance of the Old Part of Donostia-San Sebastian very close to the main remarkable places of the city, such as its port, beaches, monuments and its great gastronomic area. We have completely reformed Pension Balerdi in 2015 in order to offer high confort in every room, which includes a private bathroom. Besides, it is very confortable to visit the most emblematic places of Donostia-San Sebastian on foot such as La Concha beach, the Kursaal Congress Palace, the well-known restaurants and Pintxo bars since all of them are very close to Pension Balerdi. Just 50 meters away there is a car park and, moreover, the urban and interurban lines have its bus stops that will allow you to visit every nook of the city and discover new places of the Basque Country. If you choose to stay in our place, we will try our best to make your stay memorable. ... more   less
