Second visit to this hotel, staff excellent and very helpful. Lunch and dinner menus very good value. Parking very secure. Short walk to the popular Sardinero area with it's very clean beach. Taxi 4 euros into centre of Santander or 30 min walk, lots of tapas bars and restaurants.

This hotel is well located and pleasant with friendly staff. The hotel insofar is converted apartment and located n a residential area. The rooms are average if a bit oddly laid out but if you are luck you may get a balcony with an ocean view although not uninterrupted Food and service are good and garage parking at a cost... More

Nice location, within walking distance from 'El Sardinero' beach. Most rooms have a balcony which is great but if possible request a balcony/room with seaview. Breakfast is correct, everything you need to start a day.

Our ferry to Portsmouth was cancelled so we booked in to this hotel for 2 nights. Then the ferry company offer us free accommodation in our cabin aboard the ship until it sailed. The hotel cancellation charge was 50€. So we drove to the hotel which had a great location by the front and spoke to the front desk explaining... More

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
