“Excellent beach front location, very comfortable rooms”
Reviewed September 3, 2011

You can't beat the location of this hotel and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. Great beach front bar to watch the scenery. Staff are very professional and offer great service. It is a bit pricey though San Sebastian is an expensive place to visit.

This is certainly not the best hotel we've stayed in. Although its nice and clean, the building is over a hundred years old and is showing its age. The building is quite noisy, you can hear people opening doors and walking around both on the same floor and on other floors. The cleaners make a bit of noise as they move through making up the rooms, as well as the traffic noise from the city side (propably not heard from the ocean view rooms). The hotel was quite expensive for what it was, though we were there in the peak season.
Having said that we loved the location but unfortunately we only had a city view room. One of the ocean view rooms would have been much better. The rooms were spacious and comfortable.

Would probably recommend but with a disclaimer

Room Tip: go for ocean view room

Dear Sburtoffski,

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay in San Sebastian.

Our building is indeed a historic icon of over 100 year old, dating back from romantic era of the 19th century.

But we have good news, beginning this fall the hotel will undergo a complete refurbishment. In phases we will renovate all our guest rooms and public areas.

So we look forward to welcome you back next summer in one of our new sea view rooms.

In the mean time, save travels.

The Hotel de Londres y de Inglaterra in San Sebastian was exactly what we expected and hoped for. Situated right on the main beach, it's an old hotel with character that's maintained the ability to meet guests modern needs. A recommended place of stay.

Request a sea view room for an amazing view of la playa concha. Hotel is in a great location for shops, restaurants and the beach. Rooms are ok, bathroom is nice.

This was my first time to San Sebastian after living in Madrid for almost 2 years. Now I know why my friends kept nudging me to travel to the north coast of Spain!! Such beautiful scenery. The Hotel Londres is situated in the best location for enjoying a walk along the beach as well as visiting so much of the city. Three of us in my family had a nice size room, although on the noisy corner of Ave. de la Libertad and Calle Easo. Next time I will request a view overlooking Concha Beach which has a walking promenade and no auto traffic.
For anyone wanting to take a day trip to Biarritz, France....you can simply walk up Calle Easo to the Eusko Train station, and take a commuter train to Hendaye, France. Then it is a quick connect to the French SNCF train to Biarritz.
The service at the Londres was excellent. We also enjoyed the cocktail lounge which faces the beach . All in all a fantastic visit to the Hotel Londres y de Inglaterra!!

Room Tip: Request a room facing the Concha Beach!!!

Dear Love2Fly2Madrid3,

We are delighted your friends proved you right, and you enjoyed the walks on the beach of the Bahia de la Concha so much.

Next time you come back you should surely book a sea view room, but be in time as they tend to sell out fast.

And don't forget to ask our concierge for his favorite Pitxos Bars in the old city of Donostia.

We look forward to welcome you back soon at the Hotel de Londres y de Ingleterra in San Sebastian.

The hotel is in the perfect location, walking distance to the Old Town and in front of the beach. The staff was really helpful and the room was confortable. The lobby seems small but then you see the hotel is pretty big. The only thing was that the TV was pretty basic, with no cable TV (i.e. no movies, sports or other things to might want to enjoy on your vacation)

The location of the hotel is wonderful directly on the seaside without a road between the hotel and the sea and with beautiful views on the beach and bay of San Sebastian. We however had a room on the first floor and were kept awake by a continous irritating zoom of a machine on or below the basement of the hotel that can be heard on the lower floors of the hotel. We checked out after the first night as there was no room available higher up in the building.
