A nice hotel situated in a nice location near to the beach in Santander but just off the main road. The beach is just a couple of minutes walk away. The hotel facilities seem very good with secured underground parking available for a fee. The only downside was that the walls in the bedroom I had seemed a bit thin... More

A modern hotel set in beautiful gardens in a quiet street a short drive from the centre of Sanatander. Although we arrived late, in the early hours of the morning, we were warmly greeted, with most of the check in completed before we arrived. Very large room with a/c, tv,safe and minibar and balcony overlooking the room. Beautiful woodblock floor... More

We spent one night in this hotel and I will totally recomend it. Perfect room, clean, beautifull views and just 3 min. from the beach. Really good receptionist attendance. You can arrive to the hotel very easilly from the center by bus.

Excellent hotel, 5mn walk from the Promenade avenida Reina Victoria, beaches, casino, restaurants, Palacio de la Magdalena... Comfortable and modern rooms, stunning views from balcony and/or terrace. Nothing much to say about breakfast, just a regular buffet with not much choice but that was sufficient. I enjoyed the freshly squeezed orange juice in the jug, only one of the mornings... More

The location is great, just a stone's throw from the beach. If you peer round the balcony you can get a sea view, and with the window open at night you can hear the waves. The room was lovely- modern, clean and comfortable. Not huge, but big enough. The public areas were similarly bright and open, and made a good... More

We recently had two visits to this hotel, on arriving with Brittany Ferries and prior to leaving . On the second stay we had a Junior Suite for two nights. The room was large, very clean and had an excellent roof terrace. The staff were excellent, very helpful with a good knowledge of English. Definitely deserves its 4 stars, and... More

The hotel rooms were fine with balcony and very clean. Staff extremely helpful. Service good. We didn't eat in the restaurant but noticed it had 2 Micheline stars! Breakfast excellent but was spoilt by quite a lot of guests putting half of it in their rucksacks and handbags. We watched them, it was so obvious. Eggs, bread, ham and pastries.... More

The rooms were clean but very basic and something you would expect from a 3 star hotel. The breakfast (both at the bar and downstairs) was terrible. The melon was hard, the tomatoes were watery and had no flavour, the orange and apple juice came from a carton, the scrambled eggs where simply not tasty...Had it been a 3 star... More
