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.

Very good location. Rooms rather small but well designed. Parking available though somewhat expensive, as everywere in Europe. Good food also but simple. Walk out to the beach just crossing the street.

Beautiful hotel at a great location in Santander, a few meters from the beach, close to many attractions. The hotel is located on an old mansion completely renovated with simplicity and good taste. Personnel is very helpful and nice, food is good if you are not a vegan like me, but still they made good effort to satisfy my vegan... More

Gran Sardinero will rank on the top of the list of the hotels I stayed ! It is definitely a 4* star location. Located in the old newly renovated building overlooking the Sardinero beach, it offers large rooms, beautifully decorated in the pastel shade, with wooden floors. The bathroom is spacious with all amenities, very clean. You feel comfortable at... More

in spite of decent well kept rooms, the prompt service you would expect in a high class hotel and a nice view of the sea from our balcony there were a few drawbacks. Firstly they had closed the restaurant for two nights as they needed an additional room for a conference. We didn't want to eat in the cafeteria so... More

A very comfortable room with a really good sized bathroom, and all the facilities that we could need. Reception were very helpful and friendly and the overall atmosphere of the hotel was one of quiet luxury. I really enjoyed it. The location by the sea was fantastic, and we had a sea view. My only gripe is the caffeteria staff.... More

We were given room 404. It has a balcony and a view of the sea. We had an excellent dinner for e19.50 in the cafeteria plus 5 free glasses of wine for me! Buses are frequent and cheap. You pay the driver. Loads of freebies in room inc soft drinks and water in fridge. Wifi excellent. Big tv. Great shower!... More
