Stayed here for a conference held at the Palacio de la Magdalena (~15 minutes brisk walk away). It's a modern hotel that's slightly weathered, with a nice big revolving door for its front entrance. English well spoken at the front desk. Front desk staff are very friendly and efficient. Good facilities including an enclosed waiting area in the lobby, and...

Hotel is nicely located in Santander, close to the beach and it is big with many amenities. Service is helpful and very correct. The hotel is old but it is well maintained. Rooms have an old decoration but comfortable. Biggest issue is that it is too noisy. Walls are very thin and neighbours are easily heard as people in the...

Recently stayed for two nights with a group in this hotel. It is very nice and located within walking distance to the beach and a short drive to the centre of Santander with good bus services. The rooms were very comfortable and spotlessly clean and the general facilities in the hotel were very good and certainly deserving of it's 4...

If you want to stay near the promenade for walking this is the best place to stay. Room is nice and comfortable. Service is good. Check in is fast. Request for room at the higher floor for the view. Staff are very friendly.

This hotel is in an ideal location, close to beach and transport into city centre. Rooms are large and very comfortable. Our only comment would be that tea and coffee making facilities would be great in the rooms. Breakfast is great with a wide range of food. Local restaurants had great food.

I have been booking at this hotel for more than 35 years. September 1, 2016 is the last time I stayed at this hotel. When I arrived, the receptionist, Raquel, very rudely asked for payment in advance. I agreed to pay in advance, but I did inform her that this was the first time in 35 years that this hotel...
