Hotel is nicely located in Santander, close to the beach and it is big with many amenities. Service is helpful and very correct. The hotel is old but it is well maintained. Rooms have an old decoration but comfortable. Biggest issue is that it is too noisy. Walls are very thin and neighbours are easily heard as people in the... More

Recently stayed for two nights with a group in this hotel. It is very nice and located within walking distance to the beach and a short drive to the centre of Santander with good bus services. The rooms were very comfortable and spotlessly clean and the general facilities in the hotel were very good and certainly deserving of it's 4... More

If you want to stay near the promenade for walking this is the best place to stay. Room is nice and comfortable. Service is good. Check in is fast. Request for room at the higher floor for the view. Staff are very friendly.

This hotel is in an ideal location, close to beach and transport into city centre. Rooms are large and very comfortable. Our only comment would be that tea and coffee making facilities would be great in the rooms. Breakfast is great with a wide range of food. Local restaurants had great food.

When I arrived, the receptionist, Raquel, very rudely asked for payment in advance. I agreed to pay in advance, but I did inform her that this was the first time in 35 years that this hotel... More

Great location with great food Needs maintenance to provide luxury stay commensurate with its cost. Shower diverter blew out of fixture so to use shower instead of bathtub had to ask neighbor to hold diverter in place to take shower Wow a bit too much excitement for wife!

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel. It has a good location - just a short walk from the beach and close to a bus station with great connections to the city centre.
