This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stayed a few nights in Pension Aia, when we arrived we were greeted by Paulo who was ever so helpful and provided us with great information on places to visit and eat in San Seb. The rooms are quite modern and tastefully decorated. We had a room with a shower and although I had my reservations about shared bathrooms there was never an issue during our stay. Everything was spotlessly clean including the common areas. Our beds & pillows were extremely comfortable and we were lucky to have had a room with a large terrace, this was a real bonus for us. The shared kitchen was well equipped, although you can't cook meals it is a great area to have breakfast or a light lunch, or to just simply have a cup of coffee/tea after a long day of sight seeing.

Pension Aia is conveniently located to the beach (only 2 blocks away) and about a 10-15min walk to the town centre and the old part of SS. There are also plenty of cafe's and pintxo bars to choose from, all within walking distance.

The attention and service you get at Pension Aia makes this place stand out from the rest, both Paulo and his wife are great hosts and are always willing to answer any questions you have or offer advise on places to visit. To us this being here felt like being home away from home. I will most definitely be recommending this charming little pension to all my family and friends.

I would stay at Pension Aia again in a flash. Paulo and his lovely wife are amazing and will do anything to help you have a wonderful stay in San Sebastian. The place is super clean and got a great kitchen and the rooms are bright and comfortable. The location for the pension is also amazing. It's in the heart of Gros, which is very trendy now and we actually preferred it to the Old town. The pinxo bars are second to none and you are meters away from the surf beach, handy for anybody taking lessons or wanting to catch some waves.

I'll be recommending Pension Aia to all my friends and we'll be back soon. San Sebastian has hooked us in!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Couldn't have been happier with my stay at Pension Aia. I arrived late and was met by Paulo, who was a charming host and recommended some interesting bars, restaurants and places to go. Room was very clean, bathrooms always in a good condition and it's nice to be able to share a kitchen as well.
The Gros area is really good - there are rated pinxto bars directly opposite Aia, and dozens just a stones throw away. It's only a 10 minute walk to the Old Town, but far enough away for it to be nice and quiet in comparison when you want to get some sleep.
It's 2 minutes from the surf beach, ideal if you get some nice weather, and there's wireless as well, handy if you're checking your emails.
I had a reservation at an out-of-town Michelin star restaurant, and not only did Paulo book a taxi for me, he turned up at the Pension itself to make sure it arrived for me. That's customer service beyond the call of duty. Overall, I would recommend Pension Aia to anyone looking for a clean and affordable stay in a nice area of Donostia with lots of things to do and see.

Excellent pension, away from the noise of old town but walking distance to everything. Only downside: this part of town is undergoing a lot of construction, and it got loud early in the morning. Not something under the control of the pension owner, but present and a bit aggravating nonetheless.

Otherwise, excellent place in a paradise of a city.

A lovely pension to stay in. Like a home away from home. The service is excellent, Paulo was very helpful and the property is kept very clean. Every room is presented to a very high standard, and the use of the kitchen was great, with all the essentials provided. I would recommend this property to everyone I know, it was awesome!!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This was a pleasant surprise after having stayed in a 4 star deluxe hotel in Bilbao without service or personal attention. The landlady was very friendly and gave us lots of tips and information on where to go and what to do in San Sebastian. The pension was very modern and well decorated. Our room had a shower and a huge terrace. There was a kitchen we could use as well with coffee, tea, milk and cerreals. The luxury and service of this pension was very better than any 4 star hotel could offer. I would really recommend anyone staying here as long as you yourself resepect the owners and their pensions, so not for party animals!
