I stayed in this hotel on New Year holidays in a double room with extra bed. Good points about this hotel: Good location and walking distance to Magdalena, Casino, beach, restaurants. Air conditioning was fine and had no noise. Beds were almost comfortable, but not as comfortable and well decorated as a four star hotel. The staff were very nice... More

I booked this hotel as first night off ferry into Santander. Very good helpful staff and a nice large room with excellent bathroom. Also a garage to park the car in. No complaints at all and we had a good room rate. Evening meal was very tasty but we did not have breakfast. Sardinero is a lovely area and we... More

Good location Near to the beach, Town, and the zoo! All of which were in walking distance - so a great base, we had interconnected rooms which was great as the kids were in bed and the grown ups could still eat drink and be merry!

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

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
