Pasai Donibane is great for people looking to get off the beaten path and have an experience of living with the locals in Basque country. Accessible to San Sebastian by bus, Donibane's main attractions are its open-air restaurants on the square and its lovely walkway along the bay. The place itself was comfortable, spacious, and well appointed, with basics supplied in a very clean and welcoming flat. The check-in with Igone was excellent, and the price is right. People with difficult walking should be aware that it is a fair distance from the closest parking lot to the flat.
My mother, 8 year old daughter and I kicked off an 18 day tour of Northern Spain and Southern France by staying 3 nights in this charming apartment in the Gros neighborhood of San Sebastian. Unai and his mother could not have been more accommodating and helpful. The apartment is located on a pedestrian street, so Unai's mother met us at a cross street. She helped us unload our bags and then took us to park our rental car in a nearby parking lot. The apartment was spotless and in the best and most authentic neighborhood in all of SS. Out of the 3 incredible beaches in SS, I found the one located two minutes walk from the apartment to be the best of the 3. The beds were comfortable and every need was met. Thank you Unai! We will be back next summer!
