We have just returned from this super hotel. After reading many reviews we chose this one. We have stayed in Santander many times over the last 20 years. Have stayed in many types. As soon as we walked in we felt the warm and friendly feeling this place holds. If you want to get away from the corporate feel this...

This hotel is situated in a perfect location to enjoy Santander without being stuck in the thick of things, opposite a lovely beach. The staff were all very helpful and the room was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was basic but very nice

Stayed in this hotel as part of a Brittany Ferries package. From the outside it is very scruffy and looks unkempt and frankly would not have chosen to stay there but, inside refurbishment has been done. We had a lovely room with a very modern, well kitted out bathroom. Staff are extremely helpful, gave directions for getting the bus into...

This was our first visit to Santander and we could not have been staying in a better location! My husband and I travelled as foot passengers on Brittany ferries and took a taxi to the hotel. (We did walk into the centre during the week and it is a lovely walk, but better to take a taxi with luggage.) The...

This is one of the most charming hotels I have ever stayed in. Note, not the most luxurious, spacious, modern, etc. but one of the most charming. It's perfect for a stay in the city of Santander. The word 'quaint' isn't in my vocabulary. In my view this hotel is better described as traditional. The entire premises is traditionally decorated...
