Stayed here early October before we flew back to the UK. The rooms were clean and the beds fine. We ate in the hotel restaurant which was ok. Plenty of car parking on site at no additional charge. Good WiFi. A convenient overnight stop for ferry and airport.

The hotel was difficult to find as there is only a sign reading "Hotel" on the roof, but no name. However,the check-in staff member spoke very good English, was very efficient and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable with a nice ensuite. The shopping complex was a 10 minute walk away. Very convenient for the ferry. Would use again.

Good hotel for those who just want a nice place to rest for a night or two, but could be better. The staff doesn't speak english (willingly), so you need to work up your spanish here. There is no kitchen/bar available, so even if you want to buy a sandwich or a snack, the only option in the hotel is... More

The hotel is in an industrial area, an expensive taxi ride from the centre of the city, but only 5 minutes from the airport. The duty receptionist was dour, curt and couldn't be bothered to acknowledge our presence at the front desk whilst he was on the phone. Rooms are thin, bare and a little worn. 30 mins free wifi...

This was expected to be useful for an overnight stop before catching a ferry. It was not easy to find, the air-conditioning did not work (we were moved to 3 different rooms) other items such as the safe could not be used and the food was, at best, mediocre. The overworked staff tried to help but the management were not... More

Its in the middle of a patch of derelict land between a shopping centre and a main road into town.Taxi in costs around 8 to 10 euros.

The biggest advantage this hotel has is its proximity to Santander airport. It took us only 8 minutes to drive to the airport, so it was perfect! The hotel itself is oldish and nothing special, but the room and bathroom are clean and reasonably sized, so we were pleased with our stay.

Thanks to other reviewers who suggested it may not be that easy to find! It isn’t, even with a sat nav. Fortunately we remembered from the website what the hotel looked like and saw it on our third drive past. There is no name displayed, just HOTEL! Evening menu was limited but very good and freshly prepared. As indicated by... More

Staff were very Friendly and Helpful, we fully understood about the charge for the dog as we called them to check any conditions regarding the dog and to make sure they knew we were travelling with a dog. We arrived at 10PM they were happy to cook a meal although the menu is very un-inviting in fact it’s very basic.... More
