Hostal Cabo Mayor
Ranked #3 of 24 Santander B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 July 2012

We stayed only 1 night in Santander and chose this hostal due to its location which is close to the bus station. The airport bus has a direct service from the airport to the bus station on a half hour service and at a price of 2.20 euro, which is fantastic value. The hostal seems a bit dreary from the outside but inside the rooms were clean and modern. The staff were friendly and gave good advise.
The price for the room was very competitive at 68 euro per night for a good sized double room with free wifi.

Room Tip: Inside rooms are quieter but no view, do not chose a room next to the lift.

The owner gave very careful attention to every detail and comfort at a very affordable price. He was very friendly and informative when we inquired about the life style of Spain and was a great example of Spanish warm hospitality. We regretted that we couldn't stay longer.

I only stayed in Santander a few days but I am glad I chose this hostal. It was central to everything, I literally stepped off the airport shuttle and you could see the apartment from the bus stop!

The rooms arent massive but are very clean and homely! They are big enough for one or two people coming back after a days sightseeing and going to sleep...what else are you planning on doing in the room!

The people who run the hotel are nice and friendly! Breakfast isnt available but just behind the apartment in the shopping district where you will find lots of eateries!

Great stay!

A footstep away from the train stations (Renfe and Feve) AND bus station, the location couldn't be any better when you are traveling by public transport, or need a good connection from or to the airport. The rooms are not too big, but you'll get a clean, modern and comfortable place to sleep. The city center of Santander is a 10 to 15 minute walk.

Using Santander as a base for exploring the region this hostal was ideal literally being on the doorstep of the bus station so the airport bus would take you right to the hostal door. Unfortunately our flight was serverly delayed so we missed the last bus but Sergio came back from his home to meet us after midnight with the keys which was deeply appreciated. The room itself was modern, had everything we needed and probably the most comfortable bed I've stayed in for a long time including much more expensive hotels. The place is only small though so make sure you book a room before it's too late!

My husband and I have recently been in this little but cosy hotel. The position is simply wonderful, coming from the airport by bus, you just need to cross the street and the hotel is in front of you. The staff is very helpful and can give you a lot of useful info about Santander main places to see. The room is very clean, newly restyled, very silent thanks to double-glass windows. On arrival you are given the keys to come and go as you please. In a short walk, you are near to the city center, shops, restaurant and a pleasant sea promenade.
I would strongly recommend this hotel to all people wishing to visit Santander as the relation quality/price is really excellent.
