Here the interview to Idoia:
” Since few weeks I joined the team of the Hotel de Londres y de Inglaterra. The first thing that impacted me was the warmth of my teammates and this incredibly charming place. If I had to pick my favorite part of the hotel, if we don’t consider the spectacular views, I would choose the central staircase with elevator. This incredible stair brings me to the “belle époque” and I can almost imagine how men and women fine dressed used to down this fantastic stairs for a dinner or cocktail party. Very chic!
San Sebastian is an amazing city where you can stroll as it is very safe with its many areas for pedestrian. My favorite places are the Peine del Viento ( comb of the winds) which breathes energy mix of wind and sea, the walk back to where you feel the bravery and the vastness of the sea and the old town where we appreciate good food in a relaxed atmosphere and festive surrounded by good people, people from San Sebastian.
My favorite bar is The Mejillonera. They eat the best patatas bravas in the world and of course the “tigers” (mussels with spicy tomato sauce) perfectly accompanying with a glass of beer. When you enter the bar the shouting of the waiters to kitchen are deafening along with bell ringing every time someone leaves tip. It’s really a show!
I lived many years abroad and have traveled throughout Europe and I can tell that those who come to San Sebastian falls in love of this great city. ”
I hope you have a great experience during your stay in Hotel de Londres y de Inglaterra and enjoy your time in San Sebastian. If there is anything we can assist you with please do not hesitate to ask our staff.
