I have stayed at this Hotel in 2014 and made a positive review on it. Because of that I made a reservation for 2015 and as I always do, I stated on the comments that we are a family of four with two boys of 5 and 3. Imagine my surprise when I was contacted by Booking.com saying that the... More

We stayed at the Hotel Santander for four nights at the end of October 2014. The hotel is very well located and clean. Although the information provided says the hotel is air-conditioned, the air-conditioners are only available from July to September meaning that we had to leave the window open for cooling and air at night. Window not double glazed.... More

This a quaint, well located hotel. The beds could be a little more comfortable. You are only a 10 minute walk to the Puerta del Sol or the Plaza Major. The problem with this hotel is the noise from the night clubs on the street. Unless you like staying up until 3 or 4 in the morning you need to... More

Hotel Santandar is by no means a posh, luxury hotel, but it was a far cry better than the typical cookie-cutter chain hotel that meets that definition. Family owned since the 1920s, it is located in a historic building of the same era. Other reviewers have mentioned that, being near the square, it can be noisy at night. But our... More

Hotel Santander is a beautiful wee hotel in a great location, Sevilla metro is just around the corner. The decor is very old world and elegant, from the reception area, the lift, to the furniture in the rooms. We stayed in room 308, a spotlessley clean spacious twin room. Its a street facing room wtih views over the rooftops and... More

I stayed here for 5 nights in May, and found the hotel to be perfect for me. Other reviewers have complained about the noise, but I found it to be remarkably quiet -even with my window open at night. I was in an inside room and so was away from the main street. Even with a Madrid team winning the... More

I booked this hotel for a night the day before I was due to run the Madrid Half Marathon. I chose this hotel because it was near the start line, but unbeknown to me was also the noisiest part of Madrid. I got about an hours sleep before I was woken by screaming and shouting from outside which persisted until... More

Hotel Santander is cool! This ls old school Madrid, if you are looking for it. If you want to get outa chesse-ball yuppie pastels and into something real then hotel Santander is the business. All the facilities you could want, friendly staff and no fake smiles or try hard IKEA decore... This is 1925 Madrid like you want it... no... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
