“Perfect for a short stay”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

The situation of this hotel is the best in San Sebastian. Right on the beach front, within walking distance of the old town and right next to an underground car park (25 euros per day but for us well worth it due to a car full of luggage). Second plus for us was the hotel bar. Comfortable, looking out over the sea and with a 1920s feel to it. Really inviting (normally we never visit the hotel's bar). Third plus: wifi. Worked really fast, perfect connection throughout the hotel. Furthermore: friendly, correct and professional staff. The rooms are a little outdated but provide all necessary comfort. Perfect price/quality. We would definitely stay there again. One negative point for us: carpet floors in the room. Not very higienic....

A beautiful setting, right in the heart of the city, overlooking La Concha beach. The service was excellent, efficient and courteous. The room was clean and comfortable, with beautiful views of the ocean. As far as we're concerned, the best place in town, close to everything, and great service in the sitting lounge and bar.

The hotel is between average and good but it is saved by its fantastic location. But to enjoy its location you will need to take a sea view room. The rooms are not big and most of the balconies are small. The overall look and feel of the hotel is a bit outdated. It is in need of a renovation. There is no gym and wifi was not always working. The dinner in the restaurant was mediocre. The service is ok but not the friendliest that I have experienced in Spain. But again, the location compensates for all of the hotel's shortcomings.

Room Tip: Take a sea view room.

We spent three nights at Hotel de Londres in late December 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed our tome there. Located on the seafront it is central to the old town and all those exquisite pinchos houses; the market; shopping; etc.
The ambience is immediately of Agatha Christie or 1930s England, with a wonderful seaside salon bar replete with sofas, tables and an old-fashioned bar.
Reception staff were welcoming and spoke excellent English. The room we had faced the city not the sea (our choice due to the reduced expense) and whilst relatively small, was entirely adequate. Bathroom was also mall (no bath) but okay. Cleaning and servicing of the room was just fine; towels are have the hotel logo and are of good quality
The price was reasonable, service in the bar a bit slow (due entirely to its high number of patrons who clearly enjoyed the fantastic ambience, as we did. Our travelling companions absolutely loved the atmosphere of the bar and hotel in general.
Certainly good value for where it is and what if offers, so no hesitation recommending it!

Room Tip: A sea-view room is probably worth the extra cost, as it is a truly splendid "boardwalk" in...

I was not sure what to find as I had never stayed there before, but I knew the location was amazing. I felt the price of the rooms was extremely reasonable, so I managed my expectations. No need, everything is beautiful and perfect at the Hotel de Londres y de Inglaterra. The rooms, the beds, the bathrooms, the service, the valet, the front desk. Not a single sour note. We had an amazing weekend in San Sebastian and cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: On a budget, the lower rate room was still extremely comfortable, but if you can get them, the "...

We had a wonderful Christmas break at this beautiful hotel. The sea view rooms are well worth the extra cost. The Christmas Day lunch held in the Britannia Room was excellent - first class food and presentation with good service. Our room was spacious and comfortable and had a modern and stylish bathroom. The hotel is well located for the promonade, the old town with its many pintxo bars and restaurants and the cathedral and main shopping area is only a 10 minute walk.

Room Tip: Spoil yourselves with a sea view room

We booked this for four nights over the New Year period.
This hotel must have the best location in San Sebastián, glorious sea views and the bar is very popular with both residents and visitors. A lovely place to watch the world go by!
A good location for the old town and convenient for sightseeing.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful at all times. Valet parking was a bonus.
Rooms are well appointed and comfortable but could do with drawers under the bedside tables for small items. Bathroom was large and the showers are excellent, hot and water pressure good.
We had a quiet city view room with a large balcony which was great, unfortunately people kept dropping cigarette ends from above which spoilt it!
The gala dinner on New Years Eve was fun, food very good, entertainment lively.
My only criticism would be that we were not informed that the room rate was double for New Years Eve, this came as a surprise when we settled the bill on leaving!!
