As a young couple, we found the staff at the desk when we arrived very friendly and could not have done more for us. We found the rooms very spacious, clean and comfortable. Our room was located on the 5th floor at the side of the hotel so our only view from our window was a high rise building, also... More

The location of the hotel was excellent and the room sizes were good. However, I thought breakfast was included in the rate but when charged 52 euros for 4 of us to be served with stale burnt pastries and mushy fruity I was less than pleased. So do yourself a financial and culinary favour and find somewhere local for breakfast.

After staying in the excellent Silken Gran Domine in Bilbao we needed a last night stay in Santander before flying home, we booked the Silken Coliseum thinking it would be of a similar standard. It was certainly the same price and had touches of the cutting edge design of it's sister hotel in Bilbao. Sadly that is where it stopped.... More

We took a short break (by ferry) to North Spain and decided not to do too much driving and so stayed in Santander. This was a good option as there is plenty to see both in Santander and within a short drive. I added the "friendly" in the title on account of Jose at the desk. Before we made any... More

Stayed here for just one night after disembarking the ferry but next time would stay for longer because Santander is a really nice town and this is a great hotel with perfect location for exploring. The hotel staff could not have have been better. They were professional, helpful and friendly, with good English too. Our room was very spacious with... More

"Superior" room had huge double bed, modern, well presented and comfortable. Staff were very helpful, and free wifi. Car parking at €17 per night was expensive. Note, rooms "overlooking the old town" means street and some road noise. The bar serves the most amazing gin & tonic - try one!

Really good location for ferry or public transport. Easily found on foot. Room had plenty of space and was really quiet. In fact the whole hotel had a restful atmosphere. Fruit platter and water on the first night was a special touch. Breakfast was a proper buffet with a local flavour but global coverage. Weird coffee machines. Town maps available... More

A nicely styled and decorated hotel in the centre of Santander and very close to the ferry terminal.Secure parking available in an underground car park. Large clean rooms with all the trimmings you'd expect. Very helpful staff at reception that spoke good English. A wide choice at breakfast , would definitely stay again.

Found the staff to be very helpful at this hotel. They have a luggage store and a free safe in the room, Canal + is available for free in the rooms. Got water and a fruit platter as a welcoming gift, which was a nice touch. Bathroom was modern and the bed ok but the rest of the room could... More
