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

We arrived at 3:00 in the afternoon on Dec.30, 2013 and were told that they did not have a room for us. They offered no explanation and sent us to a very budget hotel at another location. We were not compensated for this change in any way although they had received payment via our credit card. Jesscj@state.gov

Stayed for 9 nights at this hotel, and it was equally as good as the first. Extremely central hotel, great security and ambience. I can't believe that some people criticize this hotel for having "old"furniture. The hotel was built in 1925, and the hotel has over the years purposely maintained that era. There is a phone, flat screen TV though.... More

It is no Hotel just room to sleep in -- as to its being in centro well I would say do not go for it for that reason if you are travelling in a car as there would not be a parking for miles so you end up being more stranded then not being in or near the city centre.... More

The hotel is Just in the centre of the city! Me and my friend never used the underground (although we bought tickets!) because you can everywhere from the hotel and reach any attractions, places and touristic areas by walking! The room was very big and sheets were changed every Day! Rapporto qualità/prezzo eccellente!!

It was very close to the main tourist attractions and to the Metro. it is only a 2 star hotel so we were not expecting much but we had a large clean well decorated room with good en-suite facilities. There is plenty of places around about to eat breakfast as the hotel... More

I stayed in Madrid for a few days. Thanks to the location it was easy to visit the nicest museums of the city: Museo del Prado, Museu Thyssen-Bornemisza, Reina Sofia, Real Academia de Bellas Artes. The hotel is also very close to the Puerta del Sol Station where we can take train or subway. The neighborhood is good for everybody.... More

The location was excellent! It was a short walk from Plaza del Sol, the metro, the Prado, as well as the Jamon museum (which was always full of people!) The vintage style rooms were spacious and comfortable. They included a bathroom, a/c, and television (although we never watched TV). We also had no problem with the noise. The staff was... More

We spent a long weekend in May in Madrid and stayed in this hotel. Good service, very quiet room (facing backyard) and great location, just 100m from Puerto del Sol and all central attractions. Rooms decor is authentic, high seiling and spacious. Rooms cleaned daily with fresh towels. Staff at the reception is very sympathetic and speak English. Price/quality ratio... More
