“Lovely end to our holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Our room (Paris) was beautifully decorated with great charm. The bathroom was fine, although a full size bath would have been nice and some large fluffy towels were really expected - to match the quality fittings in the bedroom. The breakfast was good, although perhaps it would be an idea to have the option of eating in the rooms, as the breakfast area became a little cramped when more than two rooms ate at once. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, speaking good English. They supplied a map and restaurant suggestions, which we used (eating at Restaurante Revert both nights - the food was good and it was nearby). They also kindly provided an early breakfast for us on our second morning, as we had to catch a flight home from Bilbao.
We really liked Santander. We were lucky to have hot, sunny weather on our first day, which coincided with a festival with delicious street food stalls, fireworks and a brilliant atmosphere. Our second day was cloudy with rain in the afternoon and evening, which makes everywhere seem less appealing! We used the "hop on, hop off" tourist bus which provided us with transport around the town for 24 hours and gave us information about the history/attractions.

Room Tip: Paris is lovely.

Good evening sirs,

thank you for all the kind words and the helpful suggestions in your review.
It is true, a full size bath or a Jacuzzi would be perfect for that kind of room, but the available space made it impossible to fit.
We will keep the suggestion about the bigger towels to enhance the fitting of the bathroom,

We are glad that you had a nice end to your holiday, thanks a lot.
Best Regards,

Michele

This small hotel is charming, because of the friendliness of the owners who really take time to help their guests and make them feel welcome.

We opted for one of the smaller rooms but it was plenty big enough for two with luggage, and very modern and stylish. The bed was comfy and I slept really well (no noise from outside or other rooms)

The whole hotel is designed and decorated very well, and is modern and stylish.

The hotel is very close to a beautiful beach and is just a short bus ride from the city centre.

The only thing some travelers might miss is facilities like bars and restaurants on site but there are plenty of places close by and the owners made some great suggestions. Personally I prefer this type of personal approach to a big chain hotel with no character.

There are so many great places to see in Europe that I don't usually return to places, but I would consider coming back to Santander for a weekend, just to visit this hotel again.

Hello! There's nothing nicer, for a hotel owner, than reading that the reason to come back would be to visit the hotel again! Being a small hotel, we believe it's important to give a "plus" of human touch!

See you next time, wish you a nice summer!

Following Trip Advisor reviews, we opted for a one night stay here on our brief trip around Northern Spain. There was only the Nairobi room available during our vacation, so we made sure to schedule our itinerary to make sure that we could visit and we were not disappointed.
The hotel is only 150 metres or so away from El Sardinero beach.
Michele warmly greeted us and immediately offered us a map of the town, marking out key sights and recommended pincho bars. He also gave us the local bus information, which was handy for getting into the centre and back in the evening after a long day walking to and from La Magdalena.
The room and indeed the hotel itself was spotlessly clean and had nothing but the best fittings throughout, many of which would put a 5 star chain hotel to shame. The walk in power shower was excellent and I loved the tiled flooring. The towels though, could have been more luxurious to match.
The continental breakfast in the morning was attended to by the lovely Pilar, who made sure all of the food items were fully stocked. There was a good selection of items and we did not leave hungry.
I would highly recommend staying here.

We stayed 2 nights 1 in Tokyo and 1 in Paris
The Hotel is superb in a good location and is a credit to Michele and Pilar
All their care in planning and detail in decoration has really paid off and a credit to them.
They were both very friendly and helpful in many ways making us really feel at home
We wish them good luck for the future and will be returning next year

We stayed here for one night prior to a wedding in Potes and all I can say is amazing. The rooms are stylish and smart. The hotel was modern and trendy and the breakfast was first class. The owners were great too and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend this hotel to everyone from business travellers to weekend couples.

We stayed here 5 nights on our honeymoon and we felt like we were staying at a friends place :) In fact we got the chance to change rooms and try both Paris and Nairobi :)The Paris room was just what we wanted, beautiful and romantic with the very comfortable bed. The Nairobi also was nice, the room was below ground and perfect if you want quiet place to sleep, very original with and wooden giraffe among other African features. Just great !!!
Michele and Pilar were always helpfull and suggest some great places to eat and to see.
The location is good too, it is only a few minutes from the beach which, very close to bus stop.
You wont be dissapointed staying here!!

This small hotel might just be the favourite. We stayed here a short while on our tour of Northern Spain. The hotel is run by people who care about their hotel and its guests.

The location is a little bit outside of the centre of town, which means you will most probably have a car. Which means you will have to spend a little time finding a parking space.

The rooms are a nice size, clean and individual. The breakfast was just right.

Most hotels will, if asked, tell you about restaurants and such near by. Le Petit does it the other way, they ask you if you what you want to know.

The hotel is run by people who seem to have gathered their experiences from travelling the world, and put them into this perfect, little place.

Thank you very much for appreciating our informations, we simply think it's important to know what to do and how to enjoy a new place, besides the hotel.
Nice to know you remember about your stay with us last summer!
