“If you like Babar, you'll love Hotel de Londres”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2013 via mobile

A Belle Époque beauty, nicely renovated, right on Playa del Concha. It even has a little elevator that reminded us both of the hotel Babar and the Old Lady stayed in. Comfy bar overlooking the beach; wonderful breakfast (included in our rate); very recently reno'ed bathrooms with rain shower etc. Really, exactly the kind of hotel you want to stay in in San Sebastián, queen of the Belle Époque seaside cities of Europe. Less than 10 minute walk to the Old Town and 15 from the convention centre if that's why you're there. One of those hotels you can imagining living in as a rich old lady needing to live by the sea for one's health. Book a room on the ocean side, for sure. No traffic passes between the hotel and the sea, only
strollers, runners, and cyclists. Devine.

Stayed May 2013, travelled on business

Recently married in San Sebastian. Could not have a better location for a hotel. Walking distance from everything we had planned. The views from the seaside rooms are fantastic. The suites are beautiful. We had many guests staying in the hotel in rooms on the plaza to suites. Great bar in the lobby to relax. Everyone enjoyed the hotel. The is some construction still ongoing outside but did not interfere and was not too noisy. The staff was very helpful with every request from taxis to greeting our traveling guests, even ones who were not staying at the hotel. Valet/parking was great. Front desk staff, day or night, ready to assist.

We did not want to leave.

Room Tip: Sea side rooms are worth it!

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
