Before entering the hotel, I was already feeling like a princess walking into the palace with a huge garden. Room was spacious with two queens and a balcony that faces the sea. It can't be more comfy that having the window wide opened, relaxing on the bed and enjoying the breeze and a great view. We had lunch at the... More

We booked a 3 day room and Breakfast deal with Voyage Privé. The hotel lived up to it's 5 star rating with fabulous views over the sea and harbour. The "old world" charm of this hotel defines Santander. The dining room is wonderful and the head waiter could not have been more professional, attentive or friendly ! There is a... More

We were impressed with this palatial Hotel. A beautiful location with spectacular views. The staff, and service reflected the grandeur of the Hotel. Our room had a lovely balcony overlooking Santander. Overall, the Hotel is presently getting a facelift, but is truly a classic in all categories. We enjoyed the Hotel and grounds tremendously!

I know some guests complained about the old carpets and furniture but, in my view, that is part of its charm! I found nothing dusy or dirty.....but the entire hotel felt like Gatsby could walk around the corner at any minute! Chandeliers, wrought iron, glass elevators, and the most beautifully laid out breakfast buffet in a true garden room, windows... More

The Real was nice however it felt tired and cleanliness was an issue. The hotel is full of carpets, rugs and old style furnishings which were dusty. We had a junior suite interconnecting to a double room with beautiful views out to the bay. The beds were okay, not very comfortable and were definitely on the small side. The living... More

Great hotel, you feel right at home, built in 1917 certainly hotels reflected different sets of parameters. They make you feel more like at home, a nice home well designed with one thing in mind your comfort.

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... More

Great views from almost every room of either the bay or ocean. Our room was huge by any standard and nicely furnished. Staff very accommodating. Great location as we were able to walk to nice beach or take bus downtown. Wifi a little slow.

Beautiful old hotel. Five star rating and five star treatment. This is the second time we have stayed there, and it remains the best we have ever stayed in. The rooms are large and air. the staff are wonderful and the breakfast is superb. This was a Brittany Ferries offer and is excellent value for money.
