Hotel Bahia Santander
Ranked #3 of 32 Hotels in Santander
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 25, 2012

A quality hotel, just over the road from the ferry terminal and a few minutes walk from the shops & restaurants, so perfectly positioned for a car-free break in the city. We pre-booked the underground car park which was really secure and easy to access anytime.
Amazing breakfast, suited to anyone - no need for lunch!
Excellent staff in all areas. Clean, well-appointed (standard) room with amazing views and complimentary safe.
We stayed at the Bahia for 3 nights 2 weeks ago, having arrived on the ferry from Portsmouth, and will certainly return.

Stayed only one night here and cannot recommend it enough!
Superb location, overlooking the bay, but adjacent to the city centre's shops, restaurants and bars. Ideal!
We had room 410, which had an excellent sea view, was quiet although also overlooking a main road, and was extremely well appointed. Very comfortable bed and fitted out with all one would expect in a 4 Star hotel.
All the staff we encountered were very friendly and efficient and helpful.
Nice restaurant and breakfast room with lots of choice and busy coffee shop, hugely used by locals which gave it a great atmosphere.
Found the steak I'd ordered in the restaurant to have been cooked with too much salt for my taste, but that's personal tastes and not the fault of the chef.
Only slight niggle was my wife said she found the bathroom a little on the dark side, and it could have done with some more lighting.
However, really cannot recommend the Bahia enough to everyone who wants to stay in Santander and would certainly go back anytime!

Very good hotel in a perfect location for Santander Ferries. Wonderful room with lovely views, very high level of amenities and service. The only disappointment was the set menu dinner, which was distinctly average, and prevents me from awarding five stars, because every other aspect of this hotel would deserve five.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

Stayed there with my family for a night, before travelling onto Portugal.We had arrived by Ferry in Santander,so the Bahia is an ideal place to stay,being only minutes from the Ferry terminal.
We parked in the underground car park(as other reviewers have said) and we ate in the Hotel at night, an excellent 3 course meal for 22 Euro's each!!.
The bedroom was big, easily accommodating a double bed, single bed and a pull up bed.
An excellent breakfast was had by all of us before our onward journey.
We agreed that we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Room number 405 is an ideal room for a family of 4,and is very quiet.

We spend two nights in the hotel and found it to be a very good choice for exploring the town center, walking to the beach and close to a wide choice of cafes and restaurants. The terminus for the bus for the airport is about 5 mins walk from the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor overlooking the cathedral

The hotel is in a great location, close to the ferry terminal but in the middle of Santander so there are plenty of things to see, restaurants etc as soon as you step out of the hotel. We had a family room which was spacious and well appointed. Getting your car into the underground garage is an experience as I have never driven a car into a lift before, but there were staff at hand to make sure it went smoothly. The breakfast was great, lots of choice. If I'm ever in Santander again I'll be staying at the Hotel Bahia.

To drive of the Ferry almost immediately to this Hotel and its secure underground parking (as other reviewers have said), is really satisfying. We needed a room with disabled facilities and the room we were given was perfect. The breakfast was plentiful, varied with excellent fresh fruit. WE ate in both the restaurant and bar during our two short stays and the quality of food and service was excellent.
