Four of us stayed here for one night on our way to the MotoGP in Valencia. We were two couples on two motorbikes. When we eventually found the hotel (our problem, not theirs!!!) we had easy parking which was a blessing as it was raining heavily and quite late. The hotel staff were very helpful and happy to converse in...

We booked this hotel as a reasonably priced stopover hotel before travelling further into Spain. Both the hotel and Santander were better than expected. Good seafront location, town centre and most restaurants are a short bus or taxi trip away.

Hotel Chiqui has a superb situation, right at the end of the second bay of El Sardinero and looking across the bay of Santander. It is fairly easy to find by car and although the hotel offers paid car parking it is not difficult to find a spot on the street directly outside. It is a short walk along the...

Arrived 12th Oct 2016. An efficient but brash greeting on check in. Forgivable. Room clean and comfortable. No AC so be careful in Summer. The hotel is a bit isolated so you have to use the restaurant and therein lies the big problem. Two young male waiters parading around like buffoons. Incredibly rude and discourteous and acting like they are...

Stayed here for four nights in October. Excellent base to explore Cantabria from. Good road communications. Practically all rooms have a sea-view whether with balcony or otherwise. Located right on the "Sardinero" beach promenade. Rooms were big and had all the facilities you'd expect from a 4 star in this 3 star. The only thing I missed was the air...

The Hotel staff are friendly and the staff at the reception are kind, patient and very helpful. The Restaurant and the Cafeteria are very clean, the food served is delicious, prices...

The hotel had parking but on a first come first served basis - no blue badge parking available that we could find near the hotel. Our first view of the hotel -was beautiful balconies over looking the sea - as we had requested and paid for a sea view this is what we were expecting. As my husband is a...

Only stayed here for one evening but next time will stay longer! A bus ride into town but easy and interesting trip. Good bar area and excellent breakfast on the terrace! Santander seemed much better value than further up the coast and I think a good place to visit in autumn or spring.

Stayed one night prior to getting Ferry back UK. Great position overlooking the bay next to the beach with sea views from balcony. Downside was lack of air conditioning in the room and distance from the main town centre, although there is a regular bus service nearby. Room and general decor average - more like a travelodge, bland etc. Tried...

This is a comfortable hotel, situated on the sea front, with sea views from all of the bedrooms. There is free parking at the front and side of the hotel, though it can get rather congested at busy times. The café serves basic unappetising meals, with fairly quick service, although breakfast – by contrast – is lavish and very good...
