This hotel is in a perfect location to enjoy the beach at El Sardinero. One block off the main street, the hotel has ocean views from some of the balconies. The room was very clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable.The room was a bit small, but not uncomfortably so. There is parking at the facility that cost 15 euros...

The hotel Victoria makes a good stopover in Santander before catching the ferry back to England. The secure parking is safe and covered so the car keeps cool if you have any perishables inside. We opted for the top floor junior suite which had a lovely terrace overlooking the bay. The restaurant serves lovely food but unfortunately was very quiet...

Beautiful hotel, room spacious and spotlessly clean. Great location, 5 minutes from the beach. All the staff were polite and very helpful. We asked to move to a room with a larger terrace and they were more than happy to do so at no extra cost. We ate in the restaurant, the food and service were both excellent, very reasonably...

This hotel is a good place to stay whether you want to explore Santander and Sardinero, take long walks along the sea and lovely parks, hike up to the Cabo Mayor or Palacio de Magdalena (aga Gran hotel=telenovela) or just lay in a sun on beautifully kept, tidy beaches – many of them. Town centre is easily accessed by local...

Very good hotel, with a lot of parking space in the surrounding area (free of P ticket). The direct neighborhood is quite but the beaches in the area are excellent, very tidy and nice, very 'white' even. The hotel is perfect to relax and to start your trips to other locations in the area of Santander and even Bilbao. The...

Rooms were clean, it is very convenient for the beach, there is plenty of secure parking. Lunch in the hotel was nice, good value and friendly waiters. Didn't find all of the staff as friendly however some were even quite rude. We stayed on the first floor which was quite noisy and had a tiny balcony. It is located in...

Stayed for a night & day. Excellent friendly yet professional multilingual staff. The room was of a high standard with all facilities. The outside terraces and lounge areas were very relaxing.
