    Good hotel Wrong room

    This hotel is well located in Santander's upmarket Sardinero area. Just across the road from the beach and restaurants. Free parking nearby although it may take a while to find a space. The hotel achieves a high standard generally. We had only one problem. Our room was close to a residential block, and for privacy we had to keep the net curtains closed. They do have rooms which do not have this problem

    Room was not the best, I would say one of the worst outlooks onto air conditioning systems and a car park. Room was stuffy and air conditioning ineffective

    Hotel right next to the sea front.

    This hotel is in an excellent position overlooking the beach in El Sardinero, Santander. The room was excellent, with little noise being heard between rooms except for our neighbour's high heeled shoes.

    Good hotel but avoid the wifi

    Hotel great but WiFi needs email address to sign in and since then we have been bombarded by spam and scammers. Don't use it..

    Hotel right on sea front

    Good standard hotel right on front by beaches and nice walks. Check in slow and man on desk not very cheerful to say the least. Room excellent apart from some mould in one corner of ceiling. Parking on street possible but can get busy at week ends as locals use beach.

    Property located in prime location in Santander. However, the condition in general, and particularly of the room we stayed was pretty wear out.
