Wonderful hotel right on the Sardinero beach in Santander. Checkin was quick and allocated room on the 3rd floor overlooking the beach, 115 eur a night but worth it for the sea view. Room was spacious and very tasteful, muted colors and lots of cushions and fabric. It did feel very luxurious and elegant. Beds were firm and very comfortable,... More

We stayed at this hotel on the 22nd June after coming over from Plymouth. We were pleasantly surprised to find we had a free upgrade to a suite.The bed was so comfortable we had the best night sleep ever. The reception were so helpful. A perfect start to our holiday . The hotel also offers free Internet.

We recently stayed at the hotel over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was an initial hiccup on the room type, where a double room does not necessarily mean a double bed. After a call to reception our room was changed and ultimately upgraded thanks to the great customer service from Maria Jesus. The hotel itself is a... 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.
