    had been or were

    We had been here last week.
    We were here last week. Do they mean same or any difference?
    "had been and were" always make me confusion.
    Thank you.

    Re: had been or were

    Without context, I would opt for the simple past; however, there are possible contexts in which the past perfect is more justifiable.
