Score from 300 reviews Wonderful
Very modern and a bit clinical but have to admit that the room was spotless on every level. Surprisingly good nights sleep as the bed was very comfortable and we did have a little balcony which looked out onto the Main Street. The staff were efficient and friendly.
Not easy to find even though it was near to the beach. Parking close by but quite expensive. The room was too small for two people.
Just a couple blocks from La Concha playa, and we walked easily enough to both the train station and the main bus stop. Plus, Old Town was a 10 minute walk, and was nice to stay outside of there for noise avoidance. Very friendly staff, very clean, but a bit basic a you're in a pension within an office/apartment building so very quiet and no overnight staff. Would recommend.
Location excellent for beach and everything within walking distance
Towels were not changed over but rather folded up still wet and placed on the shelf and then we didn't know who had which towel. Very small room and shower
Location, friendly staff and value.
Room was compact but comfortable. Very clean and updated. Only 2 short blocks to the Beach Promenade and a short walk to Parte Vieja. Staff was very helpful, and had some good recommendations on where to eat. We would definitely stay there again.
Nothing negative to say. Enjoyed our time there.
Pension Garate is in a great location, minutes from the beach and a short stroll into the old town. The rooms are very clean and tidy, with comfortable beds. The staff are very friendly and will help you with anything you ask of them! We loved out stay!
The only thing was it gets a little noisey with the street outside so can be hard to sleep if the window is left open due to there not being any air conditioning
Location great for a few days in San Sebastián. Staff were friendly and helpful. Accommodation very clean and comfortable but very tight. Wifi was strong. Noisy street but soundproofing effective. We went for the food not the accommodation.
Very expensive for facilities on offer but appreciate that it was peak time.
excellent staff, always helpful, great location close to la concha and city centre
Staff Balcony in the Room Location Decoration
small rooms Bathroom was really close to the bed and not very private
Great position, close to the beach and city center, the staff was nice and available
We arrived really late at night and were greeted by the loveliest receptionist who welcomed us with a warm smile, any information we needed and recommendations we were after. The room overlooked the busy streets but sound not an issue. Only small walk to beach and main restaurants/shops in the old town. We will recommend to anyone.
This pension is in a perfect location. Very clean & comfortable.
Noise can be an issue but that is normal in Spain so bring ear plugs!
location to old town, beach and shopping
proximity to beach, parking discount, blackout shades, exterior soundproofing, has an elevator
small room, no air conditioning, hallway noise
Amazing location, staff are super friendly. This is great value for money, we loved it :)
The location near the beach and old town. Staff were helpful. Room very comfortable
Fantastic location (just a few streets from the beach), rooms are slightly compact but well equipped, clean with great bathrooms and v comfy bed. Important to note this is not a traditional hotel, but a set of appartments, managed by extremely helpful and friendly staff. Book your parking in advance (easy to do, and a 5 min walk from the hotel, not to mention the hotels gets you a discounted rate!). Finding the hotel is pretty straightforward if you use a Sat Nav, but (given it's a set of appartments) be aware it's not quite as obvious as a standard Hotel. Def use this place, it's v good value vs many over priced options in San Sebastian - enjoy :)
Nothing to not like - conveniently placed, clean, modern and friendly staff :)
Extremely friendly and helpful staff.
Room was very small but adequate. Would request room with balcony in the future. A fridge would have been very convenient.
Good location. Very convenient to the beach and old town. Short walking distance. Parking nearby was essential. Very clean.
Can be noisy from the street below so bring ear plugs if light sleeper.
We really like the location. The hotel is 5 minutes to the beach and 10 minutes to the old city. The place is very clean and modern and has all the amenities that you need. This is a very nice hotel for the price since San Sebastian is an expensive city.
There is a bit of noise since the Hotel is on San Martin street but it's not that bad
Very comfortable very friendly
Noisy. Lots of noise from the street & other rooms
The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the coffee and tea making facilities. The staff were very helpful, especially on our last night when we found out that our next-day trains in France were not running due to the strike. The girl was most helpful, and tried all sorts of options. She then wrote us a script in Spanish so we could book a taxi, if we needed to leave early in the morning (which we did - the script worked perfectly even in my broad Aussie accent). One block from the beach, we could even see the water from our balcony.
Taking into consideration that it is a pensione, the facilities and availability of staff was very good.
Distance to the beach, City and old town is perfect. Friendly owner and staff.
Pension Garate is a few blocks from Playa de La Concha. Location is excellent and only about 10 short blocks from the pinxtos neighborhood of Fermin Cableton. Pension Garate is clean and safe. The room is small, but we were never in ours anyway except to sleep and shower. No big deal...just relaying the facts. Temperpedic-type beds. Need to walk only eight short blocks to catch the E21 bus to airport for €5.90. Right next to big flower clock in Plaza Gipuzkoa. First bus of the day leaves from the plaza promptly at 630. Got us there in plenty of time for our 8:30 flight. The receptionist at Pension Garate was very helpful and friendly. I definitely would recommend Pension Garate for those who need a clean, safe, comfortable to stay. -----
The elevator is very small and could only fit one person and one luggage at a time. Didn't bother me but just relaying the facts. No AC, just a small desk fan but it was sufficient as the ocean air is breezy.
lack of parking; as there was no air condition in room balcony windows had to be open and noise of traffic and revellers went on most of the night.
