Well located within walking distance to the beach , casino and a few nice restaurants. The hotel bar serves nice simple food. Very friendly staff. The wheelchair accessible room has a great wheel in shower. PLEASE NOTE the lift if quite small I had to remove footplates to enter.

Second visit to this aparthotel. Staff very friendly and did not interrupt our version of Spanish language. English is spoken very well at reception but will listen attentively to Spanish being spoken. Great situation close to beach. Catering facilities adequate for a holiday. Towels and linen changed daily. The Cania bar in the adjoining street had wonderful food and the... More

Stopped of in Sardinero district (The posh part of Santander full of beautiful architecture and a lovely beach just yards away from the Don Carlos) to meet friends travelling through. At their behest we met at the hotel cafe. Simply I would say you must visit to meet Jose a one man whirlwind who despite a sudden influx of visitors... More

This is an old apartment block, so rooms are quite roomy. The decor is rather old-fashioned but everything is very clean with comfortable beds. There are only 2 electric rings to cook on but plenty of pots, pans, etc. There is also a large fridge, dining table and chairs, sofa and TV with several channels in Spanish. Reception staff are...

The good: The location is superb. They are close to the Sardinero beach, behind the casino, in the best neighborhood in all of Santander. It is walking distance from the Magdalena Palace. There are many buses that can take you to the center of town. The apartment is spacious with one bedroom and a sofa bed in the main lounge.... More

We stayed in Don Carlos only for one night on our way from Bilbao to Covadonga and were surprised by the size of our room (actually two rooms – one big living room with equipped kitchen and bed-room). The furniture was out of date and wardrobe’s mirror was broken. But this was compensated by very close location to the big... More

I stayed at the Don Carlos for two weeks from 4th to 18th July 2009 with my husband and son and a friend's family. We had two apartments facing each other on the 5th floor (i think, only one floor above us) and with sea view. The hotel does have some flaws, a very slow lift, some fixtures malfunctioning (in...
