El Gran Hotel Sardinero is a very beautiful recently renovated 4star hotel. I stayed again I n a beautiful, bright, large room with a sea view from my beautiful, comfortable bed. I also had a lovely view of the night lights. The bathroom was equally beautiful & large with a 2metre long walk in shower. This is my second stay...

We were passing through on our way to France and decided to stay here over night. The hotel over looks the beach and ocean and was easy to find by car. The staff were helpful, the rooms are modern and big with lots of amenities. The breakfast was acceptable and did the job for our long drive. I would have...

We visited Santander for the first time in October and stayed at this seaside hotel. The Gran Hotel Sardinero is lovely from the outside and we found the rooms equally as nice. Modern amenities, and the rooms offer safes, a mini fridge with complimentary water and juices stocked daily. The room also come stocked with many toiletries should you forget...

Good underground parking. Large clean rooms. Only disappointment for a large hotel. Not a great restaurant. Lots of restaurants nearby and easy walking distance. Staff helpful in reception. When checking in and have a car it is easy to pull up outside hotel.

Very nice hotel with modern rooms located near the casino and the beach. Although the hotel is not located near the center city, there are several buses and taxis nearby. And there are several restaurants nearby. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Rooms were large and clean and the bed was comfortable. Wi-Fi worked very well in both the...

Stayed as part of a Brittany Ferries deal. Hotel has nice rooms and are quiet. For a plush looking hotel, breakfast is a pretty ordinary affair, but our deal was on a b&b basis so no big deal - however would probably not bother if having to pay separately. Underground parking is good but expensive at 17 euros per night....

We picked this hotel because we were arriving in Santander having spent an overnight on the Brittany ferry from Portsmouth. It is a magnificent hotel although the location, not being in the centre of the city, might put some travellers off. Not us though, the rooms are spacious and very modern, the bathrooms palatial and the interior of the hotel...

Spent one night at this hotel. Looks brand new, indoor parking and very nice decor. Excelent location right next to the emblematic casino bulding in front of the beach. Some rooms have sea views. Very recommended

The hotel is beautiful. I would recommend to book a high floor room with the sea view. You have the sunset in the morning. It is just stunning. The location is perfect, facing the casino and on the Sardinero beach.
