Pension Bellas Artes
A wee perla in San Sebastian
Having recently spent 3 nights at the Pension Bellas Artes, I would highly recommend this pension to anyone. The rooms are very clean and include en suite bathroom with all the trapings of a 4 star hotel (towells, shampoo, shower cap etc). Each room has a TV and a few extras are left in the room each day such as chocolates, sweets and fresh flowers.
The owner and all the staff must be some of the most welcoming and helpfull people that I have ever encountered. They gave suggestions on what to do during the day, booked visits to the Spa, booked restaurants, all after carefully considering our needs (this was especially true for us as we were traveling with a wheelchair using grandmother (There was a lift).
No food is available however there is a drink and snack machine available in the corridor and being in Donostia San Sebastian you are truly spoilt for choice with the huge number of restaurants that are available.
Unique Quality: The welcoming and informative staff are truly amazing. The high standard of a hotel that calls itself a pension (a slight understatement) - I have stayed in many pensions and this would rate as one of the best that I have ever stayed in.
The chocolates that are left in your room each day is a superb touch as are the flowers.
On friday and monday there is a nightclub near the pension which can be noisy, however the hosts do provide ear plugs for those that find the noise intrustive, however I must say that I slept through it!
They think of everything for you in this pension. A memorable stay in Donostia San Sebastian made even more memorable due to this pension.
