This hotel is situated in a perfect location to enjoy Santander without being stuck in the thick of things, opposite a lovely beach. The staff were all very helpful and the room was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was basic but very nice

Stayed in this hotel as part of a Brittany Ferries package. From the outside it is very scruffy and looks unkempt and frankly would not have chosen to stay there but, inside refurbishment has been done. We had a lovely room with a very modern, well kitted out bathroom. Staff are extremely helpful, gave directions for getting the bus into... More

This was our first visit to Santander and we could not have been staying in a better location! My husband and I travelled as foot passengers on Brittany ferries and took a taxi to the hotel. (We did walk into the centre during the week and it is a lovely walk, but better to take a taxi with luggage.) The... More

This is one of the most charming hotels I have ever stayed in. Note, not the most luxurious, spacious, modern, etc. but one of the most charming. It's perfect for a stay in the city of Santander. The word 'quaint' isn't in my vocabulary. In my view this hotel is better described as traditional. The entire premises is traditionally decorated... More

When our children were young, we were initially introduced to Carlos III by the Spanish tourist office in Santander. This year we took... More

We stayed here in a family room for 2 nights before we caught the ferry back home. It is a great hotel; spotlessly clean, very welcoming and packed full of understated old world charm. The hotel breakfast was perfectly judged (simple but satisfying) and politely served. Notwithstanding the nostalgic charm of the hotel the wi-fi signal was great with good... More
