A short break to Santander with a great location, that's all you want when time is at a premium and Gran Hotel Victoria fits the bill perfectly. Adjacent to Playa El Sardinero, close to local bars and restaurant serving great tapas and dinner, and within a pleasant walk into the centre for the marina, shops and more restaurants, the hotel...

This has an ideal location. 2 minutes walk from the beach and about 30 minutes walk to the city centre. Taxis are about 8E if you're feeling lazy. The place is clean, quiet and has secure parking for about 14E. The rooms have balconies, are well appointed with good bathrooms and beds and WiFi is available for free. The two... More

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

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
