9.6 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Literally 2 minutes walk from the sea. This was a fantastic small hotel. Friendly and helpful owners. I can understand why it has won awards. My stay was only for one night, but would happily return there for longer.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Everything was as expected. And even more. I stayed 3 nights. The staff & owners were so attentive & kind. Going beyond the call of duty like finding where I could buy a knee brace the day I arrived. So informative of what to see & the public transport system. There were 4 bus lines just down the road to take me into the centre. The room was perfect & everything worked like a dream. Felt safe to walk home at night as the street was well lit & the entrance to the hotel. Breakfast was well catered for & plentiful.
Cons: I would have liked there to be a small fridge however the staff were more than happy to allow me to use their fridge.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: We love this hotel primarily for its location so close to the ferry to Plymouth but also because its in the heart of shopping land. We spend our last night of our trip here which gives plenty time for present shopping and a last minute fashion flutter. The hotel has upgraded considerably in recent years and with a substantial and reasonably priced public car park on the doorstep, it fulfills our needs excellently. However, our overwhelming memory of this most recent visit is of our room. It was on the 10th (top) floor and the sweeping view of the bay from the windows was stunning. It was also an incredible room, not so much in size but in how it was appointed. Loved it! There's no gourmet restaurant but there's a very adequate restaurant and it's open late which is a great convenience. We also had a light breakfast which was self-selection prior to resuming shopping and our subsequent journey of a few hundred yards (as the crow flies but not as the one-way system travels) to the ferry embarcation. We will always use this hotel whenever we use the ferry and we're very happy to recommend it.
Cons: There was nothing to dislike; we had everything we needed.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff was very helpful and friendly. Great location.
2.0 Mediocre
Cons: 1. WIFI does NOT work. Missed deadlines! I was unable to do work because of wifi not working, missed important deadlines! 2. Every door slams so loud that sounds like bomb. 3. Smells cheap and kinda nasty. 4. Receptionists are incompetent and showed attitude instead of trying to resolve the problems related o WIFI. 5. The day I was leaving they proposed to change room. I thought it was clear expression of mocking and making fun of a customer. 5. In room 506, there is a light on the building outside near the window, which so strong that at night seems like you are the beach in front of the sun and the curtains do not help. I am not a light sleeper and I fall asleep easily, during this 4 day stay I could not sleep because of that and extremely loud door slamming. Overall experience was horrible. I flew across the globe from Los Angeles for work and due to mainly almost not working WIFI my trip was next to nothing. I feel I was robbed. This hotel does not deserve to be 4 star one.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Good location, beach promenade an easy walk away as was the old quarter and secure parking within a couple of hundred meters.
3.0 Mediocre

Cons: The room was quite small and the beds too short for 2 out of the 3 guests.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The location was good enough, near the main street but a little ahead, in a road on the slope. Staff very helpful, room nice, bed comfy and there are plugs near the bed for our chargers. Right near the entrance of the hotel there is a big fruit store when you can also buy water, bread or other food (it's open until 21). There are nice pubs very close and the bus station is also very close (on the main street). We can left our luggage there from 12 to 20 because we had a late flight.
Cons: The nearby street didn't have banks ( like mostly other streets in Santander) . There is no balcony (but that we knew from the beginning )
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is very good - close to city center and lots of restaurants and bards in the area. The room is basic, but clean. The people at the reception are very mice and helpful.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful Two Star Find for price, location. excellent. Staff lovely Thank you to Ceasar & Gemma & All for their kindness. everywhere walkable, train, bus taxi, sightseeing
Cons: The only thing I would suggest is a safety rail on the wall for entering & exist bath/shower. The Shower bath/shower is small & for older or larger individuals may nee a rail to hold on to to improve safety. Also the rooms do not have air conditioning, so high summer heat may not suit everyone. Plus a room at the back of the property rather than front as some weekend 'revelers' may disturb sleep.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice hotel in the city center, very clean and the staff was very very helpful.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Such amazing value, we had a huge apartment room in the center of town.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: We had a large room on the fifth floor with a bright corner view and a renovated bathroom. It was simple, «no frills» but confortable, quiet, very clean. In a town where hotels are rather expensive, we found it was an excellent deal. The situation was also better and more central than expected with many shops and restaurants just nearby. We would definitely come back.
Cons: I don’t think they serve any breakfast but you have many option in the neighborhood.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very clean room. Polite staff. Good price.
Cons: Difficult parking
9.6 Excellent

Cons: Breakfast was very poor, probably the worst in all my travels to Europe. Smoked glass windows in lounge made the room very dark. No socket in kitchen for toaster had to put on floor to use.

Pros: The check in experience was ok
Cons: The bed wasn't comfortable at all. The staff at the restaurant was horribly rude to both myself and the friend I was traveling with. We didn't eat together, he went into the restaurant before I did and the waiters were rude to him. I went in 1/2 hour later not knowing he had been there and they were insufferable, I walked out.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The food in the restaurant is smashing. Don't go out for breakfast, get some tortilla into you first!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location for the seafront, City centre and links to major roads. The room and bathroom were clean and modern the shower pressure was superb.There was a 24 hour reception where the staff all spoke English. The bar restaurant on the ground floor was reasonabley priced. There were numerous others within walking distance. We paid extra for a secure parking space in the basement garage for 2 motorcycles at 10e per day this looked lower than other hotels in the area (the space could easily have taken 4 bikes) so 2,1/2e a day per person. The Hostal is on the first floor and the electronic key let you into the building,your room and operated the power in the room. There was a city bicycle hire terminal just outside if you wanted to use the system. Our room was at the back which made little difference to us as the front of the building doesnt face the sea.
Cons: The air con struggled to lower the temperature and switched off if you took the electronic key with you.

Cons: The wifi didn't always work
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were some of the friendliest I’ve come across. The bed was very comfortable and I’ve got bad hips and back. Lovely to have secure car parking Lovely restaurant down stairs, though closed Sunday night and Monday. The place was spotlessly clean. The bus in to town and beach goes from just out side.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The property is relative near the beach, there is a bus station near buy that conectes with the city center. The room has a decent size, you have a double bed, a tv, a table and 2 chairs, and a fully equipped kitchenette. The bathroom is also a good size, the shower is maybe a little smaller than expected when you see the bathroom but is ok. The cleaning lady comes every day, and even cleans the dishes from the sink. There is a restaurant down stairs but it has a strange opening hours (like the rest of the city boutiques). We found him open Saturday night and Sunday morning. Then it was closed until Tuesday morning.
Cons: The pillows are a little weird. is one long pillow for 2 persons. we asked for an extra pillow and received it. But are a little strange.

7.9 Good
Pros: Fab location with great views of the sea /beach from our room. Lovely area for walks with stunning scenery.
Cons: Bathroom could do with a good scrub & update. Mould on grout and seals around shower & cracked tiles. Water pressure in shower very poor & had to wait an age & waste a lot of water for it to run hot. Hairdryer kept overheating & cutting out & I don’t have a lot of hair!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Good hotel, excellent staff

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect for our purpose .... loved the hotel and Santander
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Cleanliness, Sandra (the receptionist), the location
Cons: Doing it through booking.com, as it was far more expensive than through the hotel. The possibility to get a breakfast for 14,5 euros!!!!! There is a cafeteria in the hotel were yoy can enjoy a nice breakfast (chocolate con churros, tostadas con aceite de oliva virgen extra y tomate, café...) for 6 euros all together.
7.5 Good

7.9 Good

Cons: I wouldn't know...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was especially roomy & comfortable
Cons: There was nothing to dislike
7.9 Good
Pros: Location to Sardinero beach was amazing, definitely worth paying for the sea view option. We were on two motorcycles and there was motorcycle parking right outside the hotel which was super convenient and free. The hotel allowed us to keep all our luggage with them after we checked out so that we could spend the day on the beach, this was very useful considering we were on motorcycles and didn’t have anywhere to keep our stuff and didn’t want to keep it on the beach with us.
Cons: Breakfast is a bit pricey at €15 per person. We should have just walked across the road to a cafe and spent a fraction of that. Hotel is a bit far from the city centre (30minute walk) bit wasn’t a big deal as we’d been the year before. Best option for first timers is to pay for the tourist sightseeing bus, see the sights and also hop on/off the bus for 24hours and get your ride into the city centre.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was perfectly located for us. Right opposite the beautiful Playa del Sardinero and a 5 minute bus ride into the city. The room was clean, the beds were comfy and the staff really helpful and friendly.
Cons: The only criticism was that, at some stage, the shower in the bathroom has obviously leaked and the wall in the bedroom was stained and cracked. Other than that, it was a great hotel.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location and decor
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The room was comfortable, the view from the terrace was lovely.
Cons: It would have been nice to have had chairs and a table on the terrace. Also, when we asked for information about buses to Bilbao at reception, we were initially told ‘I don’t know ‘. The receptionist had to be pushed a little to look up the information for us. We felt we should have been given more help and information or at least directed to where we might find it.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The quality of the food at breakfast was very good. We had several meals in the cafe and restaurant. All well cooked and drinks were offered with the set table menus. The hotel is near the main road so could be busy at peak times but it did not spoil the enjoyment of the beach on the other side if the road. The hotel has an underground parking area which is chargeable at 17 euros per night, but well worth. It saves wondering around the streets looking for a free parking space. It’s the first time I have used a elevator to go to the basement garage in the car.
Cons: Could do with some music in the restaurant.
7.1 Good
Pros: Comfortable and lovely bed. Good location.
Cons: Soulless. Prison like atmosphere. Poor value for money.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff on reception were lovely. The room was beautiful and overlooked the sea. We got a free upgrade and the mini bar contents were complimemtary. Whilst not directly in the centre there are taxis outside that are very cheap. The hotel is located directly across feom a beautiful beach amd is also on a main bus route. The buses are very frequent. Parking is free on the surrounding streets so no need to pay hotel charges.
Cons: The waiter working in the outside terrace on Thursday was not very friendly. He needs to learn to smile and engage with customers. Thats what makes people re-visit.

Dining room fully booked before we got to hotel as same group had reserved majority of tables. Breakfast offer good but hot food offer was cold. experienced similar during previous stay when hot breakfast ran out and wasn't replenished.
