Hotel Bahia Santander
Ranked #3 of 32 Hotels in Santander
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 October 2012

The Bahia is a large comfortable hotel, across the road from what is to be a new cultural centre. The access to the ferry port for cars has moved down the road a little but it's still very close. Rooms with a sea view also currently have a view of the building site but then rooms with a view of the cathedral also come with the sound of the bells chiming the quarter hours. Th restaurant is well appointed, meals are on the expensive side but portions are generous and the breakfast is an extensive buffet. There is also a popular and sometimes very busy cafeteria. Staff are friendly and wi-fi is free and available all over the hotel. For tapas try either the Cafe Royalty two blocks towards the ferry terminal or the bars inside the covered market two blocks the other way towards the marina. The cerveceria 100 a few doors along is very good for beers and sandwiches.

Stayed: October 2012, travelled with family

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of October, finishing our month long tour of France, Switzerland & Italy and we weren't disappointed. Reception staff were very friendly and efficient, spoke perfect english and had everything ready for our arrival. We had requested a sea view, high floor, not near a lift and we got exactly that. There was some sort of ground work going on across the road but we weren't disturbed by noise and, as we were on the 7th floor it didn't really spoil the view for us. The room was large, spotless and everything worked. We didn't have breakfast but did eat in the restaurant (off the a la carte menu) and the food and service were excellent, no complaints at all. If we return to Santander we will definitely stay here again. We chose to park the car in the hotel's private underground car park (extra charge), accessed via a car elevator, which worked very well and the spaces were generous. There is public underground parking just across the road from the hotel.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room on a hight floor with a sea view.

Stayed for only one night after a long sail. Staff were very helpful in finding a place for me to park my van right outside the hotel. The room was large and very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfast choice was fantastic, freshly squeezed orange juice, lovely fresh fruit and everything you could wish for. Would definitely stay again and probably will on our return journey.

Well-maintained, very respectable hotel in a central location- within walking distance of the bus and train stations and the ferry/cruise ship docks. The staff is professional and operate without delay or fuss, as in a business hotel. They were expecting me when I checked in and had everything ready for me. I was at the desk for less than a minute during check-in and check-out- one of the fastest I have experienced. This is a great location for a stay in central Santander and is a true 4-star hotel.

Room Tip: On weekends the hotel, which is a popular party spot with local residents, has live bands that play...

stayed here for 2 nights recently. Hotel is very dated, 70's style but staff are all very pleasant, helpful etc. Good selection at breakfast buffet too. We booked a seaview room, although it had a view, it was marred by a construction yard beside the ferry terminal. Rooms were very comfortable. Location couldn't be better.
