Great location

Set in a lovely part of Santander at the beach.I would not rate it as a four star,it's three.Hotel Sandinero is 100 meteres away and is a genuine four star.Cleaning staff were very accommodating and friendly,the reception staff could learn from them. Lots of little bars/cafes nearby, went into the kotel cafe for breakfast once but it was just not up to local standards and dearer. The Hotel was not expensive but call it three star.

50th birthday getaway

Can't say enough about this hotel, located right on the beach (across the road) & a pleasant 20min stroll to the town centre (or 5 euro cab ride). Lovely on site restaurant & all staff extremely friendly!

Sensational Santander

Excellent location on sea front with wonderful views from beach facing windows and balconies. Apart from cool welcome from reception staff, and disappointing restaurant facilities the hotel was very good, and certainly excellent value at £45 per night for a de luxe room. Santander is a must see and has good transport links with the UK.

proche de l'océan et de la vie nocturne

Belle vue sur l'océan, à 2 pas de la plage et de la vie nocturne. Très bonne insonorisation des fenêtres. Bon petit-déjeuner varié. Personnel très accueillant et serviable.

fantastische lokatie

Alles was prima in orde. Het ontbijt was niet zeer uitgebreid maar voldoende en prima kwaliteit. Dat mag wel voor de hogere prijs die je betaald. Neem absoluut een kamer met zicht op zee, onovertroffen alsook de ligging als vertrekbasis voor het bezoek aan de het mondaine badstad gedeelte van Santander.

Hyvä hotelli hyvällä sijainnilla

Hotelli hyvällä sijainnilla Sardineras-rannan ja paseo maritimon äärellä. Tärkeää, että (ehkä hieman pienehkö) huone sijaitsi meren puolella, ranskalainen parveke hyvä. Huone oli de-luxe, ehkä hieman ylisana. Palvelu respassa hieman vaihtelevaa, pääsääntöisesti hyvää. Aamiainen oli erinomainen. Erimielisyys syntyi aamiaisen hinnassa. Olin etukäteen kysynyt aamiaisen hintaa ja minulle ilmoittettiin 9 e. Yövyimme 9 yötä, mutta söimme hotelliaamiaisen vain 5 aamuna. Lähtiessä selvisi, että hinta on 9 e, jos syö joka aamu, muutoin 15 e/hlö. Epäreilua, ettei sitä ollut ilmoitettu; 15 e oli liian suuri hinta. Muutoin hyvä hotelli, johon mahdollisesti palaamme.
