About This Listing
The apartment is in the heart of San Sebastian's old town, just a few steps to all the best restaurants and only 5-10 mins from both beaches. We have 2 big rooms with 1 double bed each with balconies in both, and a spacious lounge/dining room ;)
We are in the very centre of the old town so you can walk everywhere in a matter of minutes! The apartment is open, airy and well illuminated.
The price you see here is per night, per 1 room, and fits 2 people. If you're a party of 3 or 4 you will have to rent the second room at the same price as this one
Bedrooms are private but besides that all else is common space.
Parte vieja (the old town) is the main attraction of San Sebastian and we live in the middle of it! You can hold your breath and pass a dozen restaurants & bars!!
On foot or by bike is the best way to see San Sebastian. However if you want, you have both buses and taxi's only a few steps away.
No smoking, no pets, no kids (OK just kidding about the kids) but no parties. The house is for chilling and sleeping- you have all the party you can handle out the front door!
A 15 minute walk from the train station, and 25 minute minute walk from the bus station. The apartment was in a great location, right in the heart of the old town area and next to all the great pinxtos restaurants. Alex was a great host, very responsive and super helpful with restaurant tips and what to do around the city. So friendly! The room was really clean, shower was good and the wifi was very reliable. Would recommended for anyone spending time in San Sebastian. As mentioned in reviews, it gets loud in the evenings so be prepared for that. We would definitely stay here again when we come back.
Alex is was fantastic from the moment we arrived. She made us feel completely at home as if we were staying with a friend. The location of her house is absolutely perfect. In the heart of everything you want to be surrounded by. The beach, cafes, bars, beautiful scenery. The room was beautiful, clean, spacious. The wifi was fantastic and fast. If I were to visit San Sebastian again I would stay with her again:)
Everything about the place was wonderful. Alex was not there but her friend checked me in and showed me around town. They were gracious hosts and fun people.
If you're looking for action, the location couldn't be better. Right in the think of the old part of the town. We loved the convenience of getting to the beach and the delicious pintxos bars, but fair warning that it gets a bit noisy, especially on weekends, from the late night partiers. The flat was beautiful, spacious, and clean. It was exactly as described in the listing. Alex was a welcoming and gracious host. She was easy to reach, provided great recommendations for things to do and see around the city, and provided a light breakfast. Glad we stayed here!
After a relaxing time in the Picos de Europa arriving on one of the busiest days of the year in San Sebastian was a bit of a shock! But we soon got into the swing of it. Alex is very welcoming and the flat is in a great location to slump back to after eating too many pinxtos! If you are coming at a busy time of the year you will need ear plugs as it gets pretty wild outside the apartment at night.
Alex has a great flat in Old Town on Calle Mayor, in the center of all of the action and just above the best bakery in San Sebastian. The room was spacious, clean, and had a comfortable bed. There is a french balcony overlooking the street and views of the Basilica Santa Maria and Monte Urgull. The bathroom was always clean and maintained and kitchen was stocked with teas and fruit. Alex is super chill and always made sure I was comfortable and welcome! Thanks so much!!
B&B Alex is lovely (as well is Alex)... We had a great time staying in San Sebastian.... Alex's place is about the best location in the town...

About the Host, Alex
I'm a big fan of the surf, photography and arts, languages and traveling, etc. I'm a freelance photographer and I travel a lot looking to meet people from other countries and cultures while I document their moments and adventures.
It's been a couple of years since I fell in love with surfing, that's why I'm always looking for surf destinations to go to.
About San Sebastian?
We live in this very charming little city part of the "Basque Country". The Basque Country is really beautiful with tremendous natural sceneries, good surf and some of the world's finest cuisine.
If you come to stay with me, I can definitively recommend a lot of interesting things to do. We're also just 20 minutes to France, 45 minutes to Biarritz and only an hour to Bilbao. Check out the pictures I upload to the surroundings, and you'll get a glance about the beauty I'm talking about ;)
Thank you. Gracias. Merci. Obrigada. Grazie!
