The hotel is located about 10 minutes walk from the bus station and is close to shops, restaurants and the sea front promenade. The interior of the hotel is rather run down and the staff we encountered were indifferent or dour. Our room on the 5th floor was spacious and had a partial sea view. Spotlights in our bathroom were... More

The Hotel Central in Santander is the perfect base for a visit to this city. It is not far from the bus and train stations and it is right beside the bars and the restaurants. The rooms were large. Although our room looked onto a small interior courtyard this meant it was very quiet. There is a small roof terrace... More

We found it comfortable, clean and friendly. Room was spacious and refitted. Located right in the heart of the city, in the old town and a minute from the bay. Would certainly use this hotel again. Very good value for money.

This is a nice hotel if a little old-fashioned. Rooms are a good size with plenty of light. Helpful staff and nice breakfast. Free wifi. Location is terrific with a lovely restaurant behind hotel, Cafe Arco, and a tapas bar in the next door covered market which also has a tourist office.

The location is very central. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. Having stayed here two years ago, the breakfast has improved with much more variety of typical continental breakfast foodstuffs than the previous bread roll and cup of coffee. As others have noted, the biggest problem is the noise of the creaky floors and the flapping of... More

We booked this hotel as they advertised wifi in all the rooms. Not once did we get a signal and beyond resettting the router once which did not fix the problem, the staff were unwilling to help. The floors were also very noisy so you would hear thumping through the night. Don't go if you want wifi.
