“Santander a pleasant surprise”
Reviewed May 20, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights in May. The hotel was better than I had expected nice size room, nice shower and bathroom.
We had evening meal in hotel good menu price 3 course with wine. Food was good.
We didn't go for breakfast as too expensive.
Only improvement with hotel would be please teach the staff to be friendly. We didn't get much of a welcome upon checkin, checkout and when we entered the hotel. Again another Spanish hotel with plenty of staff around but no one making an effort to welcome their customers.
Location not central but we had deliberately chosen this to get a good nights sleep. Easy to get bus from close to hotel to centre.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in January, with my husband.
Style: modern hotel, and attractive hotel: the building is Liberty style, the hall is ample, fine and costly, with armchairs and newspaper at your disposal. During Christmas season it was particularly pleasant as it was decorated by angels’ wings, a Christmas tree and a climbing Santa.
Location: just in front of the Casino (closed in winter) and by the Sardinero beach. The area is safe and there are a good numbers of restaurants. It may become noisy in the summer due to the beach vicinity.
Rooms: The rooms are very spacious: the furniture is modern and comfortable, with two wardrobes, one at the entrance for coats and the other near the bed for clothes, a writing table, a chair, two armchairs and a little table . All rooms are equipped with air conditioning during summer and heaters in the winter. There is carpet on the floor. The bathroom is big, with a large shower. Everything is very clean
Food: the best breakfast I had in Spain. There was anything you may desire: typical cheeses, sausages, pastries, croissants, different kind of yogurt, even churros with chocolate for the new year morning! I had my New Year’s Eve dinner ant it was delicious.
The staff is at your disposal for every kind of advice: restaurant, excursions, where to buy gifts, etc.
The good: everything is made to make you feel comfortable
The bad: nothing can complain on
Price: € 77 double room, including breakfast. This price is applied for off season. It may increase during summer but it is well deserved.

Two night break at this hotel which is positioned next to the Casino.
Would thoroughly recommend . Not stayed in a better hotel room for along time and very reasonably priced.
Close to the beaches and short bus ride into the centre from almost outside the hotel.

  • Liked — Standard of the room

A côté du casino, un peu en retrait par rapport au front de mer se trouve l'hôtel **** Hoyuela du Grupo Sardinero, Santander. Bel immeuble dont certaines chambres ont vue mer.
Me renseignant auprès de la réception concernant les conditions de séjour, je fus agréablement surpris de trouver une réceptionniste fort aimable et parlant un bon Français en plus de l'Anglais.
Des deux hôtels 4 étoiles (Hotel Rhin and Hoyuela) distants de 200 m et visités pour obtenir des renseignements, mon choix pour un futur séjour est tout tracé sur base de l'approche des réceptionnistes envers des voyageurs étrangers.

Upmarket, traditional spanish hotel with marble floors and hard wood everywhere. Perfectly positioned for the beach and strolling along the promenade. Rooms big and spotlessly clean. Staff very friendly and especially helpful at the front desk.Food was excellent and I could not fault the hotel at all. Thoroughly recommended.
