Built in the Baroque style of the 18th century, this former palace is surrounded by the wonderful countryside of the Carriedo Valley, in the green region of Cantabria. The Palacio de Soñanes was originally built in 1719 by a local noble family. To this day it retains many original stone features which add to the charm of this luxury hotel. You can also climb the enchanting Renaissance staircase at the building’s heart. Dine at the hotel’s splendid à la carte restaurant, Iniro, where you can choose from delicious local dishes and more modern cuisine. Accompany your meal with one of the 175 varieties of wine available in the palace’s own cellar. The decor in each of the guest rooms matches the palace’s traditional elegance. Rich fabrics blend with exquisite carpets and luxury, antique-style furnishings – ideal for a romantic getaway.

This Palace hotel is a fabulous escape outside Santander. It has been beautifully but authentically renovated and it takes you back in time to 1710 when I was told it was built. It is quirky. The ABBA room was clean, roomy, extremely comfortable and looked over the beautiful

My boyfriend and I visited here for two nights for a wedding recently. The hotel is a bit difficult to arrive to.. if you're from out of town, you need to travel to Santander or Bilbao then rent a car or take a taxi. It's deep in the countryside, but it's absolutely

Dear guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your opinion with us. We would have liked to have had a better experience at our hotel and that is why we took note to improve the points that were not to his liking. Day by day we strive to offer an exceptional experience to our customers and it is clear that this time we could not reach our goal.

One of our nicest hotel experiences in Spain-entire family fell in love with this hotel. Very small town, off the beaten track, worth the detour for the hotel alone. Front desk & management were exceptional, even communicating with London to resolve loyalty card issues. Spot on
