“Nice location, big rooms and very clean”
Reviewed 25 February 2009

We (couple with a child of 2 years old) spent 5 nights in an appartment at Don Carlos and were pleasently surprised! The hotel is in a nice district of Santander, El Sardinero and is located near the beach. The hotel has a garage, were we could park our rental car. The appartment consists of a big livingroom with kitchinette, a bathroom and a bedroom and is well equiped (from tv to microwave oven). We had a nice view from our room of the little park at los pinares and could even see the sea from our balcony. The rooms were very clean, the beds were made every day and the bathroom linen was changed every day as well. The beaches at Santander are lovely, but the city is not a real beauty. We went to Cabarcéno Park (stunning) and to Santillana del Mar for example, both only half an hour drive from Santander. A downside? Well, if you are looking for modern, sleek appartments you will have to look further, the furniture is very 80's and the bed has seen better days. And the breakfast is only a cup of coffee with toast or a croissant. But altogether... would definitely recommend this place if you were looking for a clean and spacious place to stay in Santander!

I absolutely recommend this Hotel. Very clean. Spacious rooms. Satisfactory equipped kitchenette.
Spacious, well supplied bathroom.
Nice view from the balcony.
Located 300-350 m from the beach. In the most aristocratic neighborhood of the city.
5-10 min to downtown in a bus.
A very good place for people that look for a good nd well located apartment without the need to clean it.

We turned up at the hotel in the pouring rain.
Booking in was quick and reasonably cheap at 60 euros per night.
We were on motorcycles and it was a bonus that they had a garage (which they did not charge to use!) BUT the ramp into the garage was exceptionally steep and the garge floor was tiled!!! Wet tyres and feet; almost a disasted!

The rooms were very spacious, clean and the location was quiet.

The bar was handy and the staff very pleasant; kept filling us with food with every drink!

The reatuarant was excellent with a good menu and great service.

The reception staff were helpful but could have been a more cheerful.

Handy for the beach and more importantly for the India Restuarant round the corner, Ghandi's - Excellent!!

We arrived in Spain and my wife promptly had her bag stolen including credit cards phone etc and my sons medicine.Watch out at the ferry port there are some scallies about!!
Upshot is our first 5 hours in Spain was spent in Police stations and Hospitals trying to get things sorted.We had not booked a hotel prior to arriving so I just picked one at random and we ended up at the Don Carlos Apartments - not to be confused with the Hotel Don Carlos just down the road.The three bed roomed apartment in the attic was fine for a family of four, a little basic but did the job apart from the beds which need upgrading and the pillows which need throwing out!

Where this place really excelled was the staff and owners who on hearing of our plight pulled out all stops to get hospital appointments for our son (who needed a new prescription for antibiotics and to get another appointment with a doctor to change the dressing on his wound) and to help us cancel credit cards phones etc. they were excellent.Great customer service.And this place is a few metres from a superb beach , close to the casino and restaurants and on the bus route into town.
Get those beds sorted out and we would go again
