Oh Gosh! A trip in the '80s!!! The hotel is a bit far from the centre, but it would make sense if it were unforgettable... Instead it is an old-looking establishment, in a fantastic bay: El Sardinero second. If you really want to stay here... at least get the room with terrace and sea view, otherwise anything above €40 would... More

Lovely situation, right at the end of El Sardinero. Every room has sea views. Friendly, helpful staff at all levels. No problem parking, plenty of space along the sea front if the hotel car park is full. Five minutes walk from an Irish pub and a great restaurant. Buses to the city centre or just walk and enjoy the beaches.... More

The hotel has the most stunning views and is right on the seafront. Make sure you have a balcony to take full advantage. I think the hotel could be noisy in high season. The tasting menu was superb but we did not try the bistro. There are a few local bars but for restaurants you need to go into the... More

The hotel was very busy when we arrived but it was dissappointing that the lady at reception was very grumpy. We had previously enquired about parking to be told via email there was a hotel car park. They did not tell us it was very small and that if we wanted to use it we should have booked, meaning there... More

I can only endorse all of the previous good reports on the Hotel Chlqui in Santander. We stayed for one night (double room, 30th Oct 2013) after coming off the Santander ferry from Portsmouth, en route to The Algarve, before starting a 500km trip today.. Good points about the Hotel Chiqui:- convenient for the ferry port, beautiful location right opposite... More

After having been shocked by the traffic and signing on the approach to Santander, and after a lot of driving that day, I had no desire to go out of Santander again. I was astonished by the price of this Hotel when it is in such a great location and of such a good quality. I had a room overlooking... More

We stayed at this hotel on the 10th October, for the second time. We use it as a stop over when arriving/departing Spain on the ferry. It has safe underground parking for 10 euros a night, or free parking at the front of the hotel. Mind you the front car park is always busy. It was bit like a mini... More

Just returned from a lovely holiday touring Northern Spain. Stayed in Hotel Chiqui two nights on our travels. We planned just one night stay but were so impressed with Santander we decided to stay another night. Our room was lovely and overlooked the beach. The bus service into the main town was great. The little cafe corona at the end... More

The staff are very helpful but it be can tricky communicating as they dont really understand english that well. The rooms were nice and clean, the food was good as well.... More

We could not improve on that review. The only query was about air conditioning which was not necessary for our visit when we left the balcony doors open and slept beautifully to the sound of the waves gently breaking. Everything else was great but treat the breakfast as good continental rather than poor english. We stayed 2 nights but will... More
