Perfect location, few steps to the beach. Good quality. Price is adequate to the standard room. Little bit old and old fashion, but still ok. I've been in season and out of season both was good. Gluten free breakfast and friendly staff. No hotel guest parking.

The place is great. Just 50 meters from the beach. The rooms, clean,were a little bit cold. Bathroom was clean, a bit old. The air refreshment is poor inside. The tv offer is not fully true, not all the described channels are available. It is complemented in the bar. Service desk not specially kind, as the average of the rest...

We loved Santander as a city and this hotel was just fab! To get into Santander town centre is either a 20-minute walk or hop on a bus (very cheap), there are lots of local shops, and a really good Chinese restaurant locally, additionally you can walk across the street and be right on the beach! Beautiful hotel, rooms were...

We had a room looking out over the bay & beach and it was beautiful. Perfect end to have 3 nights here before going home. Poor experiences at reception (gave us wrong info), the cafe and the main restaurant. All staff seemed very lacking in knowledge of the hotel or area. (Great housekeeping staff) Hotel position was superb.

This hotel is fabulous! After spending 3 nights in a cramped room in San Sebastian we traveled to Santander and checked into this place. Beautiful views with windows that opened up to the breeze and ocean air. The beach across the street is SO pretty. We could hear the waves all night. Definitely a romantic place to go! Very spacious...

This is a well positioned hotel if you want to be near the beach. There are some restaurants nearby as well as the Casino. The hotel is clean and well maintained. We had a room overlooking the sea and the road. Noise was not an issue as we like to hear the sea and accept a bit of noise from...

The hotel was situated on the main beach front in the main area and was easy to find. You can park for free in the small car park next to the hotel or on the street. On arrival the man on reception was unfriendly and quite indifferent so not a good welcome. We took the lift to our room. The...

We stayed here three nights and had a lovely ocean view. Check in was very efficient and the property has (very) small elevators. It has 'additive architecture' in that you have to be careful what elevator you get on because there are some steps to navigate because of different levels on each floor....not a big deal. Close to the ocean...
