This seems to be an apartment converted to small rooms, and the machine-assisted plumbing is very noisy - other guests would likely have awoken me, if I hadn't slept with earplugs. No wifi password displayed at reception nor anywhere in the room, but I didn't realise this till I'd already undressed and didn't feel like changing to go back out and ask for it. What bothered me most was, even though I arrived precisely when I said I would and the reservation website had said "no prepayment required" the receptionist had already charged my credit card before I arrived. I use a personal card to guarantee my bookings but travel on business so this just means added paperwork/credit card debt when I had intended to pay cash. They shouldn't do this when a client is still within the expected arrival time.

Myself and my partner stayed here yesterday only one night. I would say that it is not to bad if you want to stay somewhere central for one night but not for much longer. The place is clean which is a plus but the bed wasn't comfortable and there was no shampoo or shower gel. I think you can find a better place for the same money.

Great location two minutes away from the bus ans train stations. Decoration is simple yet practical. All seemed well maintained and clean. This is a good place if you are spending a night in the city and want to keep the budget under control.

We stayed longer than most people at the Plaza(12 nights)because my Spanish wife took off to visit relations for a few days during our holiday in Cantabria.The Pension is clean,tidy and with very nice people behind the desk and looking after the rooms.They don't speak English which wasn't a problem for us and I don't think it would be for non-Spanish speakers either.Room was small but quite sufficient for our needs(basically sleeping and showering.)Linen changed and room cleaned regularly.Very central location,a few minutes away from cafes,bars,restaurants,shops,stations and the town centre.5 minutes walk from the Ferry Terminal,if you travel to Santander by ship,as we did.We enjoyed Santander and surrounding area,and living in the Plaza. Not expensive either.
