Travel Blogs from San Sebastián - Donostia
After an amazing weekend skiing in Vielhal, Spain I went by car to San Sebastian to spend the night. I caught my bus at 12:30 on Monday morning and I was beat and excited for a 4 hour quiet trip home, with breath taking views. I sat down, the bus took off and I was ready to relax....however...I had a man sitting next to me that seemed a bit interesting. His name is Alvaro and he had to be around 60 years old and I couldn't help but ...
... that said we were apart of an 'Erasmus party'. Erasmus is the foreign exchange program in Europe. The band offered us specials on drinks and the Aussie guy and I got a drink. I told him to order a strange named drink starting with 'K' without any knowledge of what it was. It turns out it's a mixture of coke and red wine that comes already mixed out of the tap.
It was a very fun night but we decided to head back earlier than I had stayed out the ...

Then after that I was good so I could get an ice cream. Today I learned new words. Numbers, counting to three, and gracias means Thank you and every day at home I say gracias off Mr ...
... we are learning! I am sure Cory and I will do better in Barcelona. We hope for some better weather there, especially now as I appear to be on the tail end of my illness - only sounding like a fog horn early in the morning and at night!! Looking out the window right now I don't hold too much hope though as it is still grey and overcast. Well at least I have heard it is sunny in Italy - I'll look forward to that! PS. We are in Barcelona now and it is gorgeous and sunny! Loving ...
... going on. We were on a mission though, find lunch venue that also serves plain rice for KT who was not well and back sleeping at our hotel. We stumbled across what looked like a Japanese restaurant but like many of the Asian restaurants here they are called "oriental" and usually serve Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese all together.
It was a successful mission though and we secured KT’s next two meals which supported her ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de Londres y de Inglaterra San Sebastián - Donostia
This is a great hotel, with a great location and prices. We had a great ocean view of the bay. The staff was extremely friendly, patient with non-Spanish speaking guests, and very helpful. Kudos!
I have just returned from a short holiday to San Sebastian with a group of friends. Based on the reviews on tripadvisor I booked this Hotel for our three night stay. We booked Ocean View rooms and they were delightful. The Hotel was very comfortable and well maintained. Although not cheap I would not question the value for money we enjoyed. The Hotel staff were very good and as for the Gin and Tonics in the Swing Bar - well why can't we get them like that in the UK?! The buffet breakfast was good value with a very wide selection of both hot and cold food. The only criticism we had was the coffee always seemed to be stewed. The Hotel is superbly located and meant that we could take a stroll every evening to a pre-booked Michelin Guide listed Restaurant! In fact once we arrived we left our vehicle in the secure garage nominated by the Receptionist. Overall, Highly recommended.
Just returned form a European honeymoon wherein we stayed 3 nights at the hotel Londres Y Inglaterra. This is a great old hotel with probably the best location in San Seb. Our double ocean view room had a large window (that you can open) that looked out on to La Concha beach and the boardwalk. The room was quiet, had good A/C, was large enough, had a nice bathroom, had immense closet space and was very clean. The staff was very friendly, accomodating and spoke great English. We really couldn't find any fault with this hotel and would definitley stay there on any future trips to San Seb. Lastly, for non-smokers, the only floor of the 6 floor hotel which is non-smoking is the 2nd. So, if being high up for the view is important to you and you are a non-smoker, you must choose between being up high or having a non-smoking room (personally, I am a non-smoker and the second floor room was beautiful, the view was great, and it wasn'ty noisy at all).
After walking around the entire city, I realized that this hotel's location was not only good, it was the best! It's steps from the sand, steps from shopping, and steps of the Old Part of the city. The rooms were clean and nice (a little older than modern, but still great) and the staff was wonderful! They were helpful, friendly, and a pleasure to deal with. I'll definitely stay here again next time I'm in San Sebastian.
We're going back again!
Much more character and warmth than the Maria Christina. A room with a view of the bay is a must! Watching people promenade below our balcony was a regular part of our day - both surrounding mountains were always visible from the balcony as well. Perfect location - walking distance to the aquarium, the old quarter, and Zona Romantica. Also, the hotel is very "kid friendly" - our children especially enjoyed the old-fashioned elevator. One negative: the staff were professional and helpful (giving directions, making restaurant reservations), but even though we stayed 26 nights, the staff did not increasingly personalize their service over that time. Still, we leave in 2 weeks to go back for another long stay at this wonderful hotel!
We stayed in a ocean view room and it was amazing. The view was breathtaking and the room was very nice. If you want to be on the beach this really is the only choice and a very good value. The staff was great and the bar is nice, great olives. Highly recommend it!
The Best Address
Great location. Be sure to get an Ocean View Room. Suggest upgrade to Parlor (suite) Room which is not much more expensive and has lots more space.. The Bar at the Londres is the place to be at the cocktail hour.
The last three times I visited San Sebastian, I stayed at the 5* Westin Maria Cristina. For about 350-400 euro a night, it was worth the money.
On the Beach
Very pleseant place to stay. very charming. On the ebach with easy walking distance to tapas bars. Great views.
Pleasant hotel, very friendly and efficient staff. Hotel is decorated in the style as one might expect from its name as an Upper crust English seaside hotel. The Bar is very nicely fitted out with attentive bar staff, great views of the promendade. Very secure Valet Parking. Get sea views if you can. Guests tend to me more mature well healed travellers. Don't change money in the hotel as their rates are very poor ( they will admit this). Rooms,clean, well fitted but with slightly antique air conditioning. Wonderful old authentic lift ( though it has two modern ones also). Room breakfast very good.
