Located in the centre of the old town this hotel brims with character, old stone walls, creaky floors and ancient windows. The rooms are fairly basic but adequate. No tea/coffee facilities but there's a hairdryer. The big problem is the noise. Occupants of neighbouring rooms and anyone moving around the hotel can be heard quite clearly, footsteps on creaky wooden... More

Stayed for 3 nights to celebrate birthday. Had a lovely room, clean and comfortable overlooking the main cobbled street.Breakfast was continental and good, but very much biased towards sweet options and not much fruit selection. Did not eat at hotel, restaurant El Duque was very good.Only complaint was the noise early in the morning which did wake us up, but... More

Service in the restaurant was terrible, the staff were surly and ignored the needs of the clientele. They were happy to serve their local customers but ignored the English tourists. We had to ask for service to our table at each course. The food was average although the bonito, or cod as they lie to call it, was tough and... More

I have stayed here each year for 25 years now and keep returning as this hotel offers good value over the much higher priced Paradores in the village. Hotel Altamira is centrally located the village is mainly car-free but one can drive past and park temporarily during the day to drop off luggage and then park close by on the... More

Small colonial style hotel, very well located, clean and almost totally satisfactory. Problems: many steps, no elevator. Breakfast, compared to other hotels visited, was not up to par. Nevertheless I must commend the two assistants at the restaurant who performed heart warming deeds to young English girls. Their names are Gema and Herminia. Kudos to both of them.

Old building refurbished into a luxury hotel. Spacious rooms and bathrooms. Good wifi. Interesting architecture and decor, but if you are driving in, be careful about the narrow roads. Breakfast was included, but it had was only coffee, juice, breads, cheese and some fruits.

Fantastic, well run , traditional hotel/ villa in the heart of Santillana del mar. The town is so interesting and a wonderful size for exploring in a day! Accommodation was very comfortable and the people were most charming, especially the gentleman on duty during breakfast. He spoke good English so we could ask lots of questions. A lovely terrace to... More

Location is in the pedestrian zone so there was some walking involved to get to the place. Upon arrival you are overwhelmed by the old world beauty of the building with exposed brick and beams. But its age is showing in the noisy, creaky floors and very old fashioned furniture that is just adequate for your needs. The room door... More
