It was a surprise visit for just one and a half days. Very conveniently located room with a view of the ocean. Great city - been my first time in Santander, but most certainly not the last. Staff at reception was very helpful. Parking is definitely worth the extra pay. I loved the easy access to the beach and the parks - definitely go out for a long walk to the lighthouse when you stay there!
Coffee. I love good artisan coffee, but it seems this is not something that has arrived in town (or in the hotel) yet.
The room was comfortable, the view from the terrace was lovely.
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.
Location and decor
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.
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.
View from the room. Ability to fully open the windows.
Expensive parking. A fair amount of street noise when the windows were open.
