Hotel de Londres y de Inglaterra
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Booked at the very last minute through booking.com from a nearby WiFi connected cafe for a one night stay - 99 euros, room only, overlooking the square at the front. Breakfast was 20 euros extra.

Initial approach to the entrance was disappointing, past the Bingo entrance, through a maze of parked cars and cigarette butts outside the entrance doors - but once inside there's an old-worldly charm and peacefulness. The view through reception into the bar overlooking the sea is bright and very welcoming.

Reception staff are formal and ultra "crisp" - immaculately presented with watchful supervisors which made me feel rather uncomfortable especially with the interminable tapping at keyboards to check in. I really don't like the sort of formal culture which seems to pervade so many hotel receptions that consider themselves 'superior'. But this did not detract too much from the overall enjoyment of staying here.

The old lift is just great and the room very comfortable, spacious and quiet - the bed was spectacularly perfect. I saw through into one of the sea view rooms and there's no doubt that for a longer stay they would be just about as perfect as you can get.

Food and breakfast was a bit pricey so we ate out. But drinks in the bar as the sun went down was just lovely.

WiFi worked well throughout the hotel.

Room Tip: Sea views rooms look spectacular.

Stayed here for a conference nearby, arriving during a storm which heralded unsettled weather for much of the subsequent week. Fantastic location overlooking adjacent La Concha Bay, with superb views and easy access to old/historic areas as well as main shopping district. San Sebastian is very clean and civic pride is obvious. English well spoken in hotel, which has an old world feel. Lighting in room could be better - but common issue for business travellers. Wireless worked well, and restaurant on ground floor was very good. Lounge and bar area popular, particularly during telecast of Soccer World Cup. Could not find a suitable quiet place however for reading and business matters, apart from own room. Fairly expensive, but a quality hotel in a great location, within a highly attractive small city. Was disturbed by floorboard noise in room above (5th floor) on a couple of occasions - in early hours of morning: as noted elsewhere on Tripadvisor.

Room Tip: Seaview room with small balcony/ledge - but you pay a fair bit more. Other side may be an option as...

I can not praise this hotel enough! We checked in at 1pm and our room was ready. We ordered a bottle of Cava for the room and it was brought up immediately. Our room was on the fourth floor and the sea view was fantastic. It's definitely worth paying a little more for. The moment we got to our room, we knew we would want to stay more than one night. The room was bright and clean and the bathroom was marble and beautiful. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. The bar served me the biggest gin and tonic I've ever had! The underground parking is public and reasonably close by. I can't wait to go back.

This is a top notch hotel in the perfect location, right on the beach in San Sebastian. We had a suite overlooking the beach and harbor, and the views by day though great, were trumped by the magnificent sunsets over the water come evening. The staff was attentive for the most part and professional. It was not cheap, but you can argue that you do get what you pay for. I would stay there again for sure.

Room Tip: Face the water if at all possible!

This hotel is wonderful! Our memories of a lifetime of San Sebastián started the minute we stepped into the door of this fabulous hotel! Our plush, large, ocean view room was simply breathtaking as we opened the door to our oven view with balcony doors that opened right up to the bay and surrounding vistas! We kept our balcony doors open all night to enjoy the sea breeze and drifted asleep to the sound of the waves lapping against the shore! The entire staff were wonderfully accommodating especially the lovely concierge, Leire who helped us set up a walking food tour in old town. What was most impressive to me and my Husband who is particular about service was the cocktail bottle service at the outdoor patio! Elegance! Pure luxury and perfection. This is a cocktail worth the wait! The server brings the entire bottle, pours a generous goblet with the ingredients and gently stirs with a long spoon! We will miss that kind of luxury and service here in the states. This hotel is located close to Old Town, City Center (shopping!!), and the surfer's beach is just a nice 15 min walk away! We would return tomorrow if we could!!

Room Tip: An ocean view room is pure heaven!

This is a wonderful hotel. It is in the absolute best location. The beach is right out the door and the downtown area is a lovely walk away. The hotel is charming and the rooms are big and very comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. They provided great restaurant recommendations too. Highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is perfectly located at the beach, yet near to all the restaurants and night life in the old town. The room I had was comfortable, clean, and quiet, even though it faced the city. All of the employees of the hotel were friendly, warm, helpful, and knowledgeable. I would not consider staying anywhere else in San Sebastián.
