Excellent location, service, and room
great place. We had room 1 on the first floor, and it was wonderful. Comfortable bed, a balcony overlooking the street, compact but good bathroom with plenty of warm water. The location couldn't be better. Literally steps from the boardwalk to the beach and three minutes walking to old town. Juan Mari has created his own food map of the area (excellent) and is an unabashed fan of his city. Across the street is a grocery store which is really helpful. Nothing was more than a fifteen minute walk from the room, most everything was much closer.

We stay in this place just one week. It’s perfect location in center of city. 5 minutes walk to any attractions like to the beach and old city. 10 minutes to train and bus station. So many coffee shops and restaurants around. To close to shopping mall and others stores. Room is small, but very cute and clean, perfect for two persons. Staff have some problem with English, but very friendly and tried to help.

Charming, compact, great location
Great location, very friendly and accommodating host with great recommendations of places to visit for pintxos. Found the room a little tight for space and the noise travelled down from upstairs and from the room next door but neither went late. The double glazed doors cut the street noise completely which was great, but a bit hot without air conditioning, which I didn’t realise we wouldn’t have in the room when I booked, which is my oversight.

Exceptional 10.0
Pensión Urkia is a great place to stay in San Sebastian. The staff went out of their way to make my time there as comfortable as possible & were extremely helpful. Springtime is definitely the best time to visit San Seb; perfect weather for exploring & not overrun with tourists.

A good little Pension
Stayed two nights when visiting San Sebastian, very good location as it's close to the beach and old part of the town. Comfy bed with a shared kitchen with all facilities which was very clean. Friendly staff.

Great property, great location
This is a great property - large clean rooms with comfortable furnishings and a great location. Nearby some shopping centers, Playa Concha, and the old town with all the pintxos restaurants. If there's any negative it's that it isn't wheelchair friendly and you'll always have to walk yourself and your luggage up at least a flight of stairs to get to the elevator.

Good room and service
Very kind and friendly owner who greeted us. There is a very modern kitchen for the visitors to make coffee or tea. This was a nice touch during he cold days we were in San Sebastian. We had no complaints about the room or service

Great place in a great location
Great option for a city that doesn’t have a lot of affordable hotel options in a great location as this does. Rooms were big, outstanding service including a great food map and other tips. Would definitely stay here again.
