The hotel is right across the beach and walking distance from the Palacio de la Magdalena (must visit) The Restaurant offers a daily 3 course menu for dinner including wines and VAT, at a great prices and very well prepared. The hotel... More

Beautiful location and building. Check in quickly. Had a room with balcony at front side. Large room, big bathroom. High ceiling, clean room. Bathroom: tub and good shower - and all amenities you can think of. WIFI is free and works good in the rooms. Breakfast is on the low side - the scrambled eggs look like uncooked egg soup... More

Behind the impeccably restored grand facade of this hotel lies a fully refurbished and modernised interior. The rooms have high ceilings and are bright and airy. Right on the boardwalk the sea views are stunning and early in the morning you can hear the waves breaking on the beach. Watch the world go by the fishermen take their chances from... More

Santander is quite an affluent town with seemingly numerous good accommodation options of which the Sardinero is one. Being located across the road from the beach many rooms will provide a good outlook but these will cost a bit extra, however, well worth it. Our room was on the side of the 4th floor and still provided views across the... More

Staying here before sailing home on Brittany Ferries. Our stay was perfect from the start to the finish. Secure car parking, worth the charge. Fabulous room overlooking the bay, with all amenities, including a fridge with complimentary drinks. Staff were pleasant, especially the young man who helped with our cases. Had our evening meal in the bar/cafeteria because the restaurant... More

Without a doubt, his is one of the greatest hotels in Santander. It has a great location right on the beach and crossing the street from the Casino. Breakfast was excellent. This hotel is really good for couples and families as well. The staff was really kind. Overall, I reccomend staying in this hotel highly.

Unfortunately I could stay only one night, and the weather was horrible. But it was enough to give me what I need to capture how fine this hotel is. A superb location by the sea side, with beautiful architecture from the early 1900's both in the surroundings and the hotel itself, all in great shape. The staff was very professional.... More

In a 4* hotel costing 205 euro per night, we would expect English & international tv channels. Being situated not far from the ferry, even more reason for have these tv channels as they must have guests from many countries. There was not even CNN as this was not working. Manager's reponse to our complaint was a big fat 0!!... More

Ok, this is the hotel you want to stay in Santander. Great and very moderns rooms in a great location, right in front of the beach. They have parking inside the premises. Breakfast is very good. One of the best cost/benefit in northern Spain.
