This hotel is rather dated that's true, however this does help to keep in with the character of the building and you could easily lounge around on one of the sofas and pretend to be in a bygone era. That being said this is a hotel and the rooms could do with being refurbished - maybe a freshen up would... More

This hotel claims to be a museum, and the furniture in the public rooms attests to this. The hotel may be somewhat faded having seen better days, but in spite of this it's a charming place with lots of public space, reasonable sized rooms and bathrooms, good service, generous continental breakfast included in the price, free internet and WIFI. It... More

This hotel was highly recommended on a number of sites and seemed just the right price. Once we arrived and took a look at our room, we knew immediately it was the wrong choice. The rooms were well worn and in need of major refurbishing. Since we'd already paid for two nights, we felt obligated to stay, which was TWO... More

This is a fantastic hotel in a wonderful location. We stayed here for 2 nights on a driving holiday through France, Spain and Portugal. Santillana is a very pretty, romantic little village that hasn't been too badly spoilt by tourism although I don't know what it's like in season. The hotel is housed in 2 buildings a short distance apart,... More

The hotel room was very good, clean, good size, pity that it looked out on to the roof of the kitchen with it's cooking smell. We had one evening meal there which was very poor and I would not recommend eating there, for breakfast we had to walk up the road to another hotel, not good as it was raining... More

This relatively small hotel is full of historical furniture and decorations so you almost feel that you are in a museum. But the management is friendly and the rooms are modern and comfortable. A really fun place to stay with its plums in the big bowl on the table to welcome you.

Very friendly and helpful staff from start to finish. Room basic but perfectly adequate with a good, strong, hot shower. The hotel is right on the corner by the entrance to the old town so very convenient and our room was on the side away from the road so we had two very good nights' sleep. Breakfast system is as...
