Perfect hotel for a beach view. Stayed over for 3 nights before sailing back on the Santander to Portsmouth ferry. Would sit on the balcony and watch the tide come in and out. Parking can be a challenge!

Apart from the view from the balcony it is hard to find anything good to say about this hotel. Breakfast is awful. No aircon in room so had to leave window open and got bitten by mosquitoes. Everywhere looks tatty and in need of renovation. Rooms and bathrooms are very small. Beds must be the cheapest they could have found... More

We enjoyed our stay at Chiqui Hotel to the fullest. Dinner and breakfast are freshly prepared and tasty. Prices are surprisingly low for a place in the city with a beautiful view. There is free parking in front of the hotel. Staff were friendly and professional. Short walk to the center.

We had a great time in Santander. I highly recommend hiking over to Playa de Mataleñas and the Lighthouse. The views are amazing. The hotel location is excellent and the room was very nice. No A/C, but with the cool ocean breeze (in August) we never needed it. The room was clean and simple, and the included breakfast was very... More

We signed up for a stay through Brittany Ferries and decided that Hotel Chiqui would be ideal as our gateway to a months roadtrip holiday in Spain. The hotel is at the very end of the promenade with sweeping views of the bay and Sardinero beach? Plenty of parking is available both on the hotel forecourt and the road between... More

Nice hotel, friendly reception great sea view from room balcony. We spent the night here after a 24 hour ferry trip from Portsmouth - quiet, comfortable place to recharge before a road trip North through Western France. The up-market restaurant was a bit dodgy - we would have had a better meal in the bistro.

Very minimalistic. Twin beds. Di not expect fancy, but clean and nice. No a/c. Complimentary breakfast was good. Patio bar had a beautiful view of the beach. Location is very nice within walking distance of bus stop and many restaurants. Check in was quick.

We have recently returned after a 4 night stay, we were a bit dubious regarding booking this hotel after reading other comments made. We found staff at hotel polite and friendly, the reception staff spoke English and were very helpful. We usually stay in 4 & 5 star hotels, so we were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the hotel... More

Returned after two very happy holidays booked through Brittany Ferries in 2013 and 2014. A very clean, simple, seaside hotel. Great location overlooking Sardinero beach . Thanks to all staff in room service , reception and bistro (especially Victoria) for your attention and care. Back to see you soon!
