Eurostars Hotel Real
Ranked #10 of 32 Hotels in Santander
Reviewed 25 August 2012

They have not chucked out their chintz, nor even their old cathode ray tv tubes. This place is old school - all about status rather than charm for the gold fillinged old reprobates who order drink after drink from unsmiling staff. Think very large dark wardrobes, keys attached to fobs heavy enough to be cluedo murder instruments, an orange marble bathroom that can only be described as "death squad orange". Of course there is no pool and the off-site spa is really for elderly ex-third world dictators seeking something sweet smelling. When I checked out an extra 60 EUR had been added to my bill. A "mistake" corrected without much grace. Mr Assad will love it here

Who's heard of Santander? Well my family and I have visited Santander 3 times over the last 5 years. A great upscale city in Northern Spain right on the ocean. The hotel is 100 years old and still serves with the grace and elegance that was the rule back then. Maintained very well -you'd never know the hotel was 100 years old. Unbelievable views of both the harbor and the ocean and the miles of beautiful beaches. Rooms are classical European: a little small but furnished very well. Wonderful old fashioned service at the front desk, the restaurants, and bars. Highly recommend both the city and this hotel in particular. Visit Santander in the third week of July and enjoy the Fiesta Grande throughout the city.

Room Tip: Make reservations early and ask for sea view rooms.

Staying at Hotel Real is a superb experience, you can imagine Poirot coming out on to the terrace.
The standard of service and cleanliness is exactley what you expect from a five star hotel. The room we had was extemely comfortable with a wonderful view.
My only critism would be the lack of information about the hotel facilities in the room and the opening hours of the restaurant which at 8.30p.m is a little late for us crumblies. The room service menu is also rather restricted.
I would still recommend The Real to anyone looking for a relaxing luxurious atay in Santander, which is an interestin and beautifull city.

We stayed in this hotel last week as part of a road trip through Spain and France and this hotel was very special. The breakfast in particular was spectacular and, even better included in the room price. I would highly recommend this to anyone staying in Santander.

Service pleasant. An incredible view. Bathroom a little tired but the beds were huge and there was plenty of space. Breakfast was also fun - especially for the people watching! And parking free so that helps!

Rather than write a lengthy review explaining how bad and hideous this hotel is, just look at all previous reviews in the poor and terrible categories of Tripadvisor. They are so accurate! This is a 3 star hotel with good views, and that is being gracious.

1: Noisiest hotel in the world and we have stayed in some bad ones! It's impossible to sleep till after 01:00.
2: Bedrooms which are described as spacious & airy in the hotel info but in reality are cramped and dull, with blankets/sheets on the beds with hideous bed covers. A true relic of the 70's. The duvet has been invented.
3: Judge it by its reception! Both the people and the building, both have been left in some time warp.

The best thing HUSA, the operator, can do is to sell this hotel to Marriott or Starwood hotels and let it be run properly.
We will never return.
