I booked 2 rooms for myself and some friends who were driving from Madrid to spend the weekend. The hotel is situated across the street from the beach surrounded by several 'luxury' hotels. Carlos III has great character, the staff was very helpful & accommodating, the rooms were very clean and the price (off season) was unbeatable. I even had... More

The hotel was originally a holiday villa for 19 century Spanish & retains all its features & charm. It was like staying at somebody's home with perfect care & comfort. Everything was within walking distance (beach just across the road, shops, bars, restaurants a few minute's walk) & Santander itself just a 5 minute drive away with its shops &... More

We stayed here for four nights. Luckily we asked at the Brittany Ferries reception desk about places to stay, the lady there phoned Don Carlos III hostal to see if there were any vacancies. If you go through Brittany Ferries you get the room quite a bit cheaper than the usual price (45.10euros), and you get a much bigger breakfast!... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights on the 8th and 9th of April 2013 after sailing on the Pont Aven Brittany ferry from Plymouth. This was a treat to ourselves for our second wedding anniversary. We walked to the hotel from the ferry port, which is quite a way, but gives you the chance to... More

Stayed here for one night with my family of 4. The hotel is set back from the road, so you need to keep an eye out for it. It looks to have been a house that was converted into rooms, but it also could have been just a quirky hotel. Still cool looking. The room became crowded because there were... More

If you want a hotel, with all it's amenities and services, you will be very disappointed. And it's more for grownups than it is for kids. But if you want a quiet room in a nice hostel, you'll love it. It's safe, clean, and staffed by exceptionally nice people. But keep it a secret, alright? Thanks.

Cheaper than many Santander hotels.Staff were friendly and rooms were clean and comfortable.Breakfast was basic and unvaried,not buffet-style;but sufficient for our needs without being a highlight!No evening meals at the hotel,but plenty of places to eat nearby. No bar,but a few tables outside for surruptitious drinks and cigarettes. Interesting architecturally,the building is well-located for Sardinero attractions.Probably best-suited for couples without...
