This is a rather grand hotel visually that is literally a one minute walk from the best beach in Santander - lovely sand, good water temperature and all facilities were close by. Inside, the hotel was refurbed a few years ago and the rooms are great. The main frustration was the service which was ordinary and low energy. Cleaning of... More

Well stocked room. Parking was 17€ Below the Hotel, access via an elevator for the car which was cool, never done that before. My only complaint was that the Hotel removed the customer business office to make room for meetings. I wanted to print out some reservation info for our trip. The receptionist said to email her and she'd print... More

In town for business and booked this beach front resort hotel. First class all the way. Room was very modern, but typical European small beds. Typical one English channel on the TV, but I was not there to watch TV. Rooms had individually adjustable AC units. Very clean and the staff was over the top helpful. Was very appreciative of...

This is a nice hotel which is in a historic building which has recently been refurbished and us well maintained. Nice rooms which are fairly large and well equipped, decent but standard breakfast buffet. We highlight the nice location of this hotel which is well suited to go to the beach.

We stayed one night here after our crossing on Brittany ferries. The room was magnificent loads of space great en-suite and very comfortable bed. Would recommend trying for a sea view if possible. The evening meal at restaurant was particularly good value. Break fast was excellent with a good range of choice. Although you have to pay for the underground... More

Stayed at the Gran Hotel for our first visit to Santander. Booked direct and the efficiency of the booking and the arrangement of transfers excellent. Disappointed at the poor customer service at reception throughout the stay. However, the room was immaculate, beautiful terrace and view over Sardinero beach breathtaking. Housekeeping was second to none and staff friendly and helpful. Superb... More

This hotel is lovely - good bedding and featured. It is opposite the casino and beach. There was a bar and cafe attached which was convenient. It is s little out of town but is was about s 5 Euro taxi ride into town. The boardwalks around the bay are lovely.

We stayed five nights at this lovely hotel with the best location in Santander. For a family room for four persons we payed the somewhat stiff price of 200 Euro a night. Without breakfast included. This would have been OK if we could feel welcome. Unfortunately the staff in the reception didn't do that, even though we spoke Spanish and... More
