Stunningly preserved parador-style hotel right in the center of santanilla. Welcoming to peregrinos such as me doing the Camino Norte. Historic rooms with good wifi, great breakfast buffet (for Spanish standards (, and all at a decent price. Would definitely stay there again!
The building and the decorations are very unique, right in the heart of Santillana. The breakfast was very good, a pleasant surprise! I was just a bit disappointed as although I booked the cheapest room(50€), it was a bit small and dark. Maybe my expectations were too high. In general a good stay
I love this hotel. Beautiful, historic and reasonably priced. Great staff. Right in the center of this lovely little village. Next time in Spain, I will stay there again. Rooms are modern and well appointed.
Hotel Altamira is the updated Casa de Los Valdivieso, the family of my first cousins on my dad's side it's in the center of town. It's a comfortable place to spend the night and breakfast was good. There are several restaurants for all meals in that same street or nearby streets. Be sure that you taste the 'quesada' sold in the nearby bakery. They can pack it so it will last for a week. Mine did. From there you can walk and visit the Palacio of Santillana, which I was excited to visit because of him also being in my family line. It's now a hotel and restaurant, we stopped by the Casa de Los Bustamante, where a family still lives because some of its descendants are my friends, but no one answered, and then went to Santa Juliana Collegiate Church. All are marvelous places to visit. The streets are still of cobblestones (round stones) so wear low comfortable heels. Check this site for other places like the casa del Aguila, etc.…
First let me speak to the positive. Christina, the receptionist was wonderful. Kind caring, helpful, with a ready smile. Rosa on the other hand was the exact opposite. I went down to the reception area, hoping to get some quick help on our upcoming flight. The internet was really poor, so I was compelled to go ask for some help. I asked Rosa for help. There were not any other people in lobby, so i felt it was a good time. I asked if she could google a phone number of the airlines. No. she would not. Then I asked if she could help with my locator number on my flight, which I had, it just would not connect in our room. No. not that either. Then she told me to go to the visitors center to get help. Really? So i did, because I was a bit desperate on our flight information. The visitor center which was a 5 minute walk, which was plenty far enough with a bad knee, were shocked that I was sent there for the help which I needed. fortunately, they did take the time to figure out the flight details, etc. Our phone did not work in the room.. Breakfast was mediocre. Our door to our room was broken. Christina was the only highlight of this stay…
