Three star, a bit ragged around the edges
I stayed in the Hotel Londres for four nights in May 2012. The hotel is in a great location not far from the beach and railway station in Estoril, although it is up a steep hill. Fine when you are walking down, not so much when you have to walk back up!
My room was on the garden level of the hotel and had views of the back of the Koi Carp pond which was not particularly attractive. The room itself was a good size for the price paid and had a sturdy safe to store my belongings in. The maid service was excellent and the room was cleaned to a high standard daily. Nevertheless, the room was not all that comfortable, mainly because of the hard bed, the shower which did not stay at a constant heat and the air-conditioning which was particularly loud. I got the impression that the hotel had seen better days and improvements were overdue. The best thing about the hotel were the staff who were great from the moment of arrival to leaving for the airport. If I returned to Estoril, I would probably not stay in the Hotel Londres in its current state again, although if improvements to the rooms were made, I might reconsider. The hotel has a lot going for it but could use a bit of TLC.
Unique Quality: The hotel has a great pool and bar area as well as a lounge area with comfy chairs. The breakfast included in the price is of a good standard and is a buffet so you can return to get as much as you want. There are a lot of amentities on site such as hairdressers which I didn't use so can't really recommend. On arrival, I was given a ticket for a free drink at the bar. This was a nice touch and the staff showed themselves to be friendly, professional and fully conversant in English.
Directions: At the top of a fairly steep incline. Wear good shoes!

Travel Tips for Estoril
The walk to Cascais
The train from Lisbon to Estoril continues to Cacais, further along the coast, but a nicer way to reach Cascais is by the path above the beach. The views of the sea are great though in the other direction some of the touristy hotels ruin the panorama. The walk begins just above the beach in Estoril, it runs almost alongside the train tracks and takes about 20 minutes to get to Cascais.
Bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, the Estoril Coast stretches all the way from the Tagus Estuary to the Guincho Beach. Thanks to its close proximity to Lisbon and therefore quickly and easily accessible, ESTORIL is well served by rail and road, most notably the scenic coast road known as the Estrada Marginal.
The Estoril coast's climate is temperate throughout the year and never subject to any extreme weather conditions. Estoril has wonderful beaches like "Praia de Tamariz" near the Estoril Train Station.
Estoril has excellent restaurants offering a wide choice of fish and seafood. Our VT group had dinner here Saturday at a restaurant near the Estoril Casino.
Hans and I walked a few times to Estoril from Cascais, as a continuous promenade runs from Sao Joao de Estoril to Cascais.
A Casino and a Beach
We stayed in Estoril on our Portugal Trip. From there we had a great opportunity to go to Lisbon, which is really close.
The main thing in Estoril is the Casino, which is amon the biggest in Europe. If not THE biggest.
