Hotel de Londres y de Inglaterra
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We booked the hotel using Tripadviser and we were very happy with the choice particularly as it is sited right on the beach in Donista. It's quaint 1930-40's style is still very appealing.
Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean and had a good sized bathroom. The restaurant for breakfast was very good and the bar area is a relaxing place to spend some time!
The people on reception were friendly and helpful, especially Juan!
The only issue we had was that our room, which was sited on the town end of the hotel, was completely covered by scaffolding and cloth hording - the hotel is obviously doing some renovation and our view from three balconies was completed blocked! There was no mention of this on the website when we booked [but I believe it is mentioned now], nor were we advised when we booked in. At book-out, I requested a discount as we were being charged the same room rate as our travelling friends who had a complete beach view from their suite.Our room rated was discounted but [still to be resolved], our travelling friends were charged a higher rate than that quoted at the time of making the booking!
This was an unfortunate end to our 5 days stay, which we otherwise, really enjoyed!

This is a beautiful hotel with extremely attentive and polite staff. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Exceptional view of the beach from our room. The room itself was very spacious not only for European standards, but also for US. We travel quite a bit and this hotel has met and exceeded all our expectations. Little touches like complimentary beach towels at the front desk and plenty of of toiletries in the bathroom definitely set this hotel apart from others.

We made online reservations for three rooms and had absolutely no problems checking in.

Weil ldefinitely stay there again when we return to the area!

Room Tip: The shower setup is not well throught-through. The water leaks out to the bathroom floor. Easy fix...

I decided to saty at this hotel for its location. I booked a sea view suite but it failed to meet my expectations. I was disappointed. The smell in the room was not very pleasant (I had to open all the windows and leave the rooom for an hour, but it didn't help), the decor was really old fashioned, the breakfast menue was poor, orange juice was a disaster. The overall style and decore made me feel like in a sanatorium for seniors.

Lovely hotel. Excellent location and breathtaking views from the sea view rooms - you can literally lie in bed and see the sea - not much to see from the street view rooms. Nice old world charm but with modern amenities. Efficient and friendly reception and very comfortable and clean bedrooms.Beds large and very comfortable.

We did not use the hotel restaurant but the bar was good - and suprisingly well priced for a 4* Hotel. The hotel is 5 minutes walk along the sea front from the old town which offers a wealth of Tapas bars, together with some very decent restaurants. Can highly recommend Fabrica restaurant and pretty much every Tapa bar that we found - in a week we did not have a bad experience. Particular highlights were - La Chucharra (everything!), Bar Nestor (have the tortilla), and Bar Zuruka (trendy twist on tapas but still very very good).

Already planing a return visit.

Room Tip: Go for sea view if you possibly can - well worth the extra.

Despite renovation work this Hotel is superb. It combines a touch of olde world class with high quality modern amenities. Poirot would have loved it. Great location and service. Parking in the underground car park is very close and secure and the hotel porter will collect your car for you.

Room Tip: get a sea view if you can.

Hotel is situated over looking the beach at la concha bay. Within easy walking distance of shopping and Tapas bars. Excellent location. Clean, well kept rooms. Nothing disappointing about this hotel. Hotel staff very helpful. Offsite parking available for approx $20 euro a day

We did not have one. We would have been more than willing to pay the additional cost, but none were available when we booked months in advance, and none opened up by the time of our visit. While the room we had was lovely, and the location excellent, without the ocean view, it is just another city hotel. Other than the bar, there is also no common area in the hotel to sit and look at the ocean if you are stuck on the city side. Bar service was terrible, both in the evenings and for breakfast. We ended up having to get up from our table and going to the bar to get service. On the other hand - -- - staff was very helpful, the hotel amenities are beautiful, parking was very convenient, and this would have been the perfect hotel if not for the lack of the ocean view. Appreciated the free in room wifi; now if only European hotels would provide in room coffee!

Room Tip: If you can't get an ocean view, I'd shop around for a less expensive hotel with a similar ci...
