Hotel de Londres y de Inglaterra
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 23, 2013

We stayed here for 5nights, chose the view facing la playa de la concha not the plaza, really nice sea breeze and enjoyed it. Very close to the old town and shopping areas. Good selection of breakfast, nice classic drinks from the bar. Concierge is really helpful and knowledgeable. Definitely will stay here again in our next visit.

Room Tip: Choose the room that facing Sea View

We stayed for two nights and wished we would have stayed longer. The hotel is located across the beautiful beach boulevard in San Sebastian, walking distance from old town, and walking distance to the cable car. Plenty of nice restaurants around. The hotel has a classic decor, understated and elegant. Very good service. San Sebastian is close to many beautiful smaller towns. Will certainly go back and stay here again!

Second time in donastia and first review on trip advisor so felt compelled to leave a review. We flew to Biarritz hired a car and drove to the hotel londres, me and my wife were very nervous about the whole idea and worried about parking, the journey was so simple and on arrival at the hotel a member of staff helps un pack your car and parks it in their under ground car park! Sea view with balcony, a list of all the best pinxos bars and a map were supplied, all a stones throw from the front door, oh and the best club in town is almost next door. If your going to San Sebastian you have to stay at hotel londres it's mint and very reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Pay the extra to have view of the beach

We booked a room the day before our stay and got a cheap rate at ~ 196 euros for two nights. Our room was near the renovations on the city side but this didn't trouble us at all. Admittedly our visit was back in October 2012, but I can't even recall being disturbed by any noise. We loved everything about this hotel and would not hesitate to stay again. The staff were lovely and recommended some great restaurants.

We had a sea view which was wonderful, albeit in the smallest room on the floor (306). Room itself was average. Reception staff were superb in terms of service and general friendliness. Bar was busy and lively on the Saturday night. Location is perfect for La Concha, Parte Vieja and the shopping district.
Renovation works are still ongoing (23 March 2013) but we were completely unaffected by these. Not sure the same could be said for guests in rooms at the rear of the hotel.

Room Tip: On the sea front - views are great

Hotel Londres has all the advantages - central location, fantastic views to La Concha, short walk to the old town - but in terms of service it is living well in the past.

The reception staff will smile and say hello but when it comes real help with bookings and other requests, they are just not interested.

We had two examples where our requests for help we met with a blank stare or a sorry, can't help.

Modern hotels these days are geared to assisting guests to make their stay more enjoyable. Our feeling was that apart from checking guests in and out, which was done efficiently, they were not prepared to go any further.

Every now and then you experience a hotel that is living on past reputation and Hotel Londres certainly is. They need to lift their game !!

Room Tip: The renovations are still going on so make sure you book a room around the front of the hotel wit Ba...

My husband had promised me a stay at Hotel Londres , having stayed there himself whilst working locally . It took my second visit to Donostia San Sebastian to get booked in . Whilst locvated on the sea front - its the back of the hotel that faces La Concha and you have to exit through the bar area. When we visited the hotel was going through renovations and had been for several months it would appear as we had hoped it would be finished before our visit which we booked in Oct 12 ! As a result of the work being done the front on the hotel was a mess and trying to park to off load lugagge etc a nightmare. They do have parking staff to guide you to the nearby underground car parkbut these people are not always on duty.

The hotel is expensive - we had a small double en-suite faciing the city for 2 nights , with parking and breakfast and it was 370 E. Note breakfast is not part of the room rate quoted and costs 20E per person per day. Parking is also an extra. Our room was well appointed but very small for the price and the promised free Wi was weak and only available in one corner of the room and a slight move of the I-Pad lost connection. Infuriating ! The main lift wasnt working either which looked shabby - there were other lifts however.

Breakfast was good and very varied but we noticed a difference in service from the Saturday morning to the Sunday - very good the first morning, lacksadasical the second with cold coffee and disappearing staff.

Lastly , the room was very noisy - both from inside ad outside the hotel. Floorboards above us and outside the room creaked alarmingly whenever anyone moved which they seemed to throughout the night - and the windows seemed inadequate to shut out street noise. The bars shut late in the town so we could hear shouting from drunks through to about 5am. Needless to say we didnt find our stay at Hotel Londres restful at all and we are still trying to catch up on sleep 4 days later!

My recommendations would be stay at this hotel if you want the location but otherwise look for something cheaper and away from the main town if you want to sleep.

Room Tip: Ask about noise !
