The Pentzio Regil is a small pension not far from the Euskotren station or from the western end of the Paseo de la Concha. I happened on it thanks to the Tourist Office, which kindly publishes a great guide of virtually all the pensions and hotels in Donostia. There was only one room left when I called, and it had a nice little balcony that overlooked Easo kalea, plus a small washroom and a TV. The rooms are fairly clean, quiet and the bed is ok – not one where you’ll get a great night’s sleep, but comfortable enough to be able to feel rested the next morning. The owner is a bit gruff, but still friendly, and there is free wifi for the entire building. The network is under a WEP key, so make sure you ask for it before you try to log on. Make sure that you have cash with you when you come to pension – he will accept a bank card, but you will have to pay the fee for using it, which he claims is somewhere around 7 euro. In all, this was pretty decent accommodation considering some of the really crappy place I’ve stayed, and the fact that the owner didn’t seem to mind me bringing in some groceries for a light breakfast or nighttime snack was a bonus.
Unique Quality: In all truthfulness, there is nothing really unique about Pentzio Regil, except, perhaps, that no surprises await you.
Directions: A few blocks south of the intersection of Martzial and the Concha
