“Excellent place to stay while in Santander”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Not only is the place clean and centrally located, the staff are extremely friendly and very professional. I have had parcels delivered there while ahead of my arrival and they have been promptly handed to me at the moment of my check-in.
We sent three shirts to be ironed for the day after and after one hour all have been delivered (impeccable).

Shall certainly lodge here again on my next visit to Santander.

Very good location for exploring city and getting out and about. Staff very helpful and friendly. Spotless rooms. Good views of harbour from some. Car lift is great fun a challenge! Difficult to find entrance to car park given roadworks. Head for small one way side street behind the sea view side ie rear. Don't get it wrong or will take hours to get back to start.

It was a very good hotel and they were very cheerful and helpful. The rooms were spacious and very clean and with everything you could want in the bathroom. It was right across the road from the ferry you could not miss it with the Spanish flag on top.

Very convenient stopover after the ferry trip from Portsmouth. Underground parking (€15) per day. Lovely room-spacious with panoramic windows. Ask for a high floor. Huge choice at breakfast (€17)- well worth the price. Staff very pleasant. Location good for wandering around the old city, where there are lots of restaurants and bars.

I stayed at the hotel for a business trip, and the location is excellent, on the sea front and close to lots of bars and restaurants.

I had a single room, it was a little on the smll side, but OK for one night. Clean and tidy, so no major complaints.

The staff were very helpful and courteous, no problems checking in or out.

Breakfast was good, with a reasonable variety and reasonably priced.

As others have said, this is a good old fashioned hotel and was very reasonably priced.

I've lost count of the number of times I've arrived and departed the ferry in Santander but I have to admit I've never stayed in Santander. So with a ferry which wasn't due to arrive in Spain until 5.30pm I thought this would be the perfect opportunity. So the task was to find a decent reasonable priced hotel in a good location and as the Hotel Bahia is the first hotel you see from the ferry it seemed like a good place to look at. Lots of positive tripadvisor reviews made the decision easy.

I drive a big car and have a lot of nightmare from the experience of hotel car parks. I contacted the hotel and they reserved me a space. Finding the car park was a little interesting as you have to follow a one way system around the back of the hotel. Entry into the car park is a lift which is a little tight, however the car park itself is a dream. Lots of space and big spaces.... and from memory about 15 euros a night.

I would describe the hotel as old fashion quality. This is not a bad thing but if you are expecting 'Holiday Inn' duvets etc, you might not like this. If you want good size rooms with cotton sheets etc then you will. Room was on the 9th floor and gave wonderful views of the Cathedral next door.

Staff are very friendly and spoke perfect English. They directed us to the area in the old town fill of Tapas bars which was only a 10 minute walk. Location is fantastic and if you find you have had a few too many drinks just head to the water and you will soon see the homing beacon of the illuminated sign on top of the hotel.
