Stayed here visiting family in Santander. First time and was a great stay. AWESOME VIEWS!
Hotel recently changed to the Eurostars hotel Chain and is undergoing renovations. This was great because I was upgraded to a room with view of the Sardinero and Palacio de la Magdalena.
Room: Great view if you are on the beach side. Rooms still contain many of the original furniture when it opened over 100 years ago. My room was spacious and had everything you would expect in a 5 star hotel .
Has a great terrace to enjoy some drinks and breakfast if you missed the buffet.
Location: located high up and perfect for the views of the bay. A little far from the city but you can catch a bus or taxi (aprox 6 Euro). About 10-15min walk to Sardinero beach and Magdalena Palace.
Wifi: very slow. No option to upgrade to better speeds.
At such a fancy hotel would be nice to have someone to greet you at the door and escort you to your rooms.
There is a separate spa and treatment center. I did not use it but its 50% of mon-thurs (at time of my stay Oct 2013). Looked very Nice.
Will return again for sure.
