It was very relaxing the rain and wind
Only stayed onwe night very good fo ferry vvv
it was right in the city centre 2mins from all the shops would stay at this hotel again. fantastic hotel and location
Close to the bay and shopping. No
The hotel was opposite the Brittany ferry terminal
close to shops and port
It was very convenient- I was waiting to meet with my husband who was travelling by Ferry. The room had a great view and was very large and comfortable. The eveing meal was excellent value. I do not really enjoy eating alone but the staff made me feel very comfortable The pillows on the bed! Re 2nd question below: I did not read any of the reviews so cannot comment
Location and value for money
layout and furnishings of room
Very comfortable, fantastic location close to Sardinero beaches and easy access to Santander city centre
the breakfast in the morning not many people spoke much english, and the restaurant was all in spanish, so could not order any food or drinks.
Efficient, pleasant and convenient
Location No smoking policy
How close it was to the water and to the Palace.
Excellently appointed hotel close to beach and casino. Very clean and comfortable despite being an older hotel. Secure parking under the hotel at a reasonable cost of 12 euros per day.
Very Clean and quiet
Location and quality
the food is really worthy(especially the toast)
Rooms very clean and of good size Price of breakfast 32e for two persons !!
We stayed there from 21st to 24th October hotel is beautiful and very central to everywhere. Rooms are lovely beds huge. Would definitely recommend this hotel
the heat in the room! and it's impossible to set your own room at the temperature you want
the customer service
Good location, very comfortable, high standard. Getting Reception to ring taxi at departure not easy. Young man told my husband to try outside at first but young lady tried harder and got us a taxi.
the staff was so friendly not a thing
Clean room, helpful staff, nice evening meal at a good price. Room was too hot, my visit was late October and I think the AC was turned off
Fantastic location for the centre of Santander and access to great food; lovely room and very helpful staff. No outside area and you are a long way from the beaches; very limited parking - we couldn't get our car in. Breakfast was poor.
As such i had come for the conference so generally i was quite comfortable whether it is morning breakfast or any other kind of assistance, enquires etc. being new to santander. Nothing
great location, clean and modern wi-fi was not very user friendly. TV was rather old and had only 1 English speaking channel
it was a four star hotel and lived up to its rating, which sometimes in Spain you cannot rely on.
An excellant hotel overlooking the sea. The staff were helpful and friendly. No complaints at all
the views and the inter-connecting rooms some staff not especially friendly, but one was very helpful. There were no special facilities for children, more of a business hotel, but very comfortable.
The location in front of the beach was amazing and the food in the restaurant was the best we ate in Santander. The bar staff were very slow getting our drinks (over 45mins to get 4 drinks also some of the guys on reception looked a bit unapproachable.
I liked the services, cleanlines of the room and the the sea-view
Location Non Smoking not available & smoke heavily penetrated my room.
The views were nice and the room was very clean The room was ptetty tight... had to move a table to open the balcony
position. easy to find.
We were upgraded to a seaview room no coffee facilities in room
Service! In this hotel they are very much aware of what hospitality really is and how you should pamper your guests. Breakfast is delicious, nearly a reason to select the hotel. Wonderfull location and very, very nice beds. Not applicable
staff very helpful
very nice rooms. very quiet and charming. Staff were helpful and spoke good english
fantastic sea view location & food
Location, view from the room, size and decor of the room.
Fantastic hotel, one of the best I've stayed in, fabulous location
The hotel is very well situated and is luxurious. We had a beautiful room with a spectacular view. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The pool and spar were really good but we consider it to be an expensive additional facility.
It is a two star hotel.matress is 50 years old. tv the same.nothing works. water pressure unestable then you burn or freeze when other open a faucet. elevators unsuficient. dirty old rugs.restaurant poorest in whole spain. no way to roll your lugage at entrance and no staff when you arrive or depart. unconveniently located and no taxis out front. safe did not work and did not received kind of room I reserved. two bed room. Worst hotel I have ever been.dont know how come is at category small luxury hotel
A beautiful classical hotel in a wonderful location. The sea view rooms are highly recommended. Probable due to the hotels age the sound proofing between rooms could have been better.
Lovely setting and terrace area looking out to the sea. Breakfast was not included in the price.
All the facilities worked well and the staff were all very helpfull as we did not speak much Spanish Your Sat Nav directions sent us to a lane up near the petrol station at the end of the main road!
Large airy cool clean quiet room poor service in buffet dining room
For a 4 stars hotel the breakfast and restaurant were very poor.Room was large and beautiful however: the double bed was very small, it was not possible to keep open the window of the bathroom, the shower did not work properly, no minibar in the room, the safe box did not work. I think this should not happen in a 4 stars hotel.
the spa jets were definitely the best part
hotel was very confortable, spacious rooms, clean and modern design restaurant attendants were consistenly rude. a/c did not work properly.
Very nice room for Spanish standards.
Beautiful hotel, very nice infrastructure No language knowledge other than Spanish and this beautiful hotel was almost deserted, almost no guests (low season maybe ?)
Quality of the hotel. Despite being in the town it was tranquil within the hotel and grounds. Spa was separate facility.
The rooms were very clean, the breakfast was excellent, the mineral water in the minibar was free. Beaches and tourist attractions were quite far from the hotel
Design of hotel lovely spar and pools nice rooms
Location uninsoiring. Restaurant the worst experience ever had in a hotel, poor service , poor quality food,poor [resentation horrible ambience. Restaurant was apalling.
Staff & Restaurant excellent. Easy Secure underground parking. Hotel set in beautiful grounds, unfortunately we were on an overnight stop so were unable to avail the many services in the Spa. No as we were only there for one night everything was excellent.
The high standard generally. No pool facilities available when we arrived Sunday afternoon and an 18 Euro per person charge to use them the next moening.
Very comfortable, air conditioning was very good. Nice size outdoor pool, good breakfasts. Outdoor pool not heated, no English translations anywhere, pricing of extras isn't clear.
Total comfort in every respect. Huge 2m wide double bed, luxury bathrooms, balcony overlooking the spa. Superb and attentive staff. Easy parking. Superb value for money (admittedly we stayed for and overnight Sunday/Monday visit, which may be less expensive that weekday reservations). Sadly the food did not live up to the accommodation in terms of culinary standards. "Disappointing" sums it up.
Location, being close to ferry port at Santander for onward trip to Portsmouth. Views from hotel/room & proximity to town centre & located in an upmarket area. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room. However, we have found this seems to be standard practice in most of the Spanish hotels we have stayed in, why? Also car parking charge excessive, but underground garage is secure albeit when we stayed appeared hardly used.
Closeness to the beaches and parks Tea and coffee making facilities in each room would be a good idea, and information about local restaurants, swimming pools etc, useful.
Large comfy rooms with excellent staff bathrooms could do with a little update
Location for beaches. Breakfast served in dull basement area. Not all waiting staff were helpful like reception staff. Would not class this as a 4 star hotel.
The room was excellent with a nice view of the sea.
Helpfulstaff excellent dinner Breakfast appeared not to be staff available to cope with the demand
friendly reception - position of hotel
Good facilities and helpful staff. Lacking in atmosphere.
The location The noise of the next door bathroom woke me up at 8 am The pictures of the rooms on the official website are not relate in some cases (like mine) with the real rooms. Really careful with this.
Nice, modern hotel. A little over-priced
A comfortable and well appointed hotel. Close to the ferry port. The staff were very friendly and helpful. No obvious deficiencies
Convenience Poor breakfast
Warm and comfortable and with variety of eating options. Well placed for Santander and ferry terminal On leaving garage at top of slope my car exhaust hit the ground, so a problem with car which are low o to the ground
easy to find great and helpful staff lovely snacks and polite waiters no english tv stations and curtains didnt pull across no coffee making facillities in room
We stayed 3 nights here and found it to be a superb hotel well situated . right on a beautiful beach. Modern rooms which were very comfortable and clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast, everything you could wish for. Restaurant facilities were good and value for money. An ideal base to see the area. Would stay here again and would thoroughly recommend it.
great location and good price, nice bar (didn't try the restaurant but looked good)
The decor, bar and restaurant service and the general quality of the experience. There was nothing that I didn't like.
Lovely room with balcony (424) very pieceful had a wonderful weekend. Great Chinese down the road 1st right after roundabout (Not the Oriental that's crap) Expensive for food and especially fresh orange juice (£3+ a small glass). After all they grow like weeds in southern Spain!!!
Having read all published comments about this hotel I can only wholeheartedly agree - excellent choice - all rooms had a seaview!
The cleanliness of the room and the view - also the buffet breakfast
Excellent service and good location
Great position in the city and close to everything bars restaurant and a short walk to the beach It was a bit expensive for what you got
The overall atmosphere was very welcoming and relaxing
Ideal location with great view over Marina, staff very friendly.
The location of the Puertochico was excellent, lovely views over the bay and very close to the old City and restaurants etc. Very clean and efficient with very good Continental breakfast.
Right on sea front very near old part of Santander easy to walk everywhere Air conditioning in room wasn't working which staff knew about but we were given another room with a sea view.
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.
Fantastic location overlooking the marina and walking distance to restaurants, bars and shops. We had booked 3 rooms and all of them overlooked the water. On arrival we sat outside and ordered a bottle of Rioja and paid the average rate, We expected to be charged more for a 4 star hotel with such a lovely view. Wished we could have stayed longer. We will be back.
Friendly, obliging staff. Spoke good English. Good location as in the middle between the shopping/commercial area one way and in the other, the beaches. Also well served by public transport - bus stops right outside hotel. Had nice room on top floor - room 901. Has balcony and nice views. Lovely, good size bathroom. Room a little small, beds a little bit too hard. Also room a bit cold.
Enjoyable stay for 3 nights in a junior suite. Slightly dated room but very well maintained, espresso machine a real delight. Maid service was excellent. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful (thanks, Mar and Angela). Air conditioning quiet and efficient. Overall a 9+ in my book. Ate at the restaurant twice, food was good and the portion was generous. Having the TV on spoiled the otherwise pleasant atmosphere.
pleasent view and well apointed rooms
Easy booking in process, friendly staff, good food, clean and spacious room. Cannot say anything negative about the hotel.
The provision of secure car parking but the charge was rather high. I would expect a 4 star hotel to provide a full room service 24/7 when your dinner service is too late for many people.
Large room, good bed, close to the beach. Poor breakfast.
Very good location and a very nice breakfast. The room was old and musty and the air conditioning made a rumble all night long. The front desk staff was dismissive and not very helpful.
It was OK, not much beyond that. Location was not very good, a bit far from the city center, however there was a bus near by. The room design and comfort was a bit dissapointing.
location, staff spotless
The staff were first rate
Very good location, nice room (big bathroom and comfortable beds), not too expensive for a 4 stars hotel
The hotel was excellent value for money, and provided an ideal base for both a beach and city break in Santender. Noisy bedroom doors.
a beautiful building with surprising and effective artistic decoration inside....a pure visual delight! plenty of parking spaces outside and the bathroom and bedroom were red and dramatic, and very comfortable with all that you might need including a spare toothebrush. lovely smelling soap and shampoo. they offered 3 grades of pillow softness for your comfort. the restaurant was extremly good, delicious food, with delightful sorbet or drink or tit bit between courses. all staff were really freindly and helpful. breakfast was a feast for all tastes! the weather was cool on our arrival or I would have loved to sit by the pool in the garden, too.there was also a lovely old library with helpful books about the area. I wish we had longer there nothing I did not like!
Everything! The staff were delightful and helpful,even the ones that did not have much English. The Palacio was wondeful and furnishing wondeful.Would definately stay at the Palacio again. Spanish dining hours!!!
staff were fantastic, very friendly no
Great Hotel - very upmarket and I got a great Rate at 0nly 60 Euros! Felt a bit out of place as I was on a motorbiking holiday - but hey dont judge a book ny its cover!!! Great location for night before Ferry Trip from Santander to UK.
breakfast buffet was fantastic
It was bright clean and efficient The beverage self-service at breakfast was very odd
Very good location fr traveling, Very goof hotel. As we are English we like our cup of tea, their were no facilities in the room and when we got up at 7.30 the receptionist told us we could not get a drink till the cafe opened at 8.30am.
Lovely pool. Cafeteria was a good place for a drink or snack Restaurant was rather gloomy. Noisy church bells and clock on one side (we changed rooms).
I liked the castle building, the decoration and the atmosphere. I was there onky one night it's not enough time.
Location and very nice overall a good 4 star hotel !!!!! nothing !
The Templo de Agua experience is a MUST - absolutely fantastic, relaxing, vivifying, calming... The spa guide was delightful and even tho' she spoke no english was able to joke with us and get us laughing. Thoroughly enjoyable pleasure. The restaurant was inundated and impossible to get a seat in so we tried the cafeteria which was more like a restaurant - so don't be put off by the name - and the food was excellent. The daytime reception staff were impersonal, surly, rude, overly bureaucratic - the worst we have ever experienced in Spain: if it had not been for the very good points to the hotel, they could have ruined the stay being the first and last impressions of an hotel. They even did not want to take payment until we threatened to depart without paying when suddenly they were able to give us attention. Additionally we were kept awake for more than an hour in the wee small hours by a leaking tap in the room above.
Friendly helpful staff. The Hotel had occupancy for a family of four.
I loved the familyar atnosphere and the design and the quality of the rooms.
Attentiveness of staff, Cleanliness of room, Breakfast Availability of local places to eat; there was only one
Superb apartments. Excellent facilities. Beautiful environment. Lovely family business.
Hotel staff spoke very fluently French. Nice room, good breakfast. Hotel staff gave very good tips about things to visit in the environment. We got a bottle of cava when we arrived and cakes when we left.
Excellent staff, very helpful. Excellent room, clean, modern, quality fittings, very pleasing. A welcoming pot of tea on arrival on a stormy night. Complementary Cava and chocolates on arrival. Gift of cakes on departure. Dog friendly. We recomend this hotel. Nothing to dislike.
everything was great the family who run the hotel are more than helpful and the rooms are great and really clean the breakfast was above and beyond what you expect total value for money all round would recommend there was nothing that we did not like about this hotel
Very well run hotel with helpful and polite staff.
This hotel is very close to the ferry terminal for travelling to the U.K. Parking is safe for your vehicle.
The hotel was in a perfect location, had parking which was a necessity. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, the girl in the restaurant even remembered what teas/coffees etc. we had the previous morning, and even remembered our room number! Would have liked free WiFi in our room.
extremely friendly staff and good location
evening meal in the restaurant was first class, all staff could not have been more helpful. would not hesitate to recomend or stay there again. not applicable
I think that the reception on our arrival and checking out was first class . A job well done and a credit to the hotel. We dont have the young ladies name but she had just had her done. wi fi is only free if you use your own laptop and it is not free in the hotel rooms
Good location. No evening meals available on a bar.
the roof balcony was lovely good for drinks on a starry night
very nice place to stay with our dog
the room was smelled of tabaco.
The parking places too small
This was a great hotel, the staff couldn't do enough for us and they all speak English if only a little which is great when my Spanish is not so good. We found the food to be of a very good standard and talking to other people they found it the same.We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you
A great base for beautiful Somo beach. Staff was very friendly and helpful, especially front desk staff. We were impressed by how many staff spoke English even though the hotel caters mainly to Spanish guests. Would have appreciated a minibar or small refrigerator in the room. Bottled water should be provided as there is nowhere nearby to purchase water or drinks outside of the hotel bar. Beach towels would be appreciated although we were not stopped from using the hotel towels for the beach.
Lovely location. Great decor. Loveley receptionist. Worst dinner ever served to us. Semi frozen, limp meat with frozen chips incompletely cooked. Rude staff. No apologies on complaint.
Great beach in Somo for surfing, running, sunbathing etc only 5 minuted walk from the hotel.
Extreme friendliness of the staff
Staff were very helpful and professional. Did not eat in restaurant so cannot comment but all other aspects of this hotel were excellent. Very easy access to beach, mountains and Santander.
Excellent staff - friendly and helpful, really nice rooms. Didn't have the hotel breakfast but the cafeteria served delicious tortilla de patatas. Nothing negative comes to mind.
The rooms were extremely comfortable and stylish. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. Although not applicable to us, some people may find the uphill walk from Somo village to the hotel difficult if they have mobility issues or if very hot and have children.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They spoke english well and made the effort to communicate with you in English. They couldn't do enough for you. The room was really lovely and very well appointed. The evening food has been described in your reviews as 'disappointing' but I would say that it was rustic. The buffet breakfast was very good, they even offered bacon and eggs which we took advantage of, but a little expensive at 12 euros. I would throughly recommend this hotel to anyone. nothing!
The hotel had a feeling of luxury and excellent cleanliness. Staff were discreet but very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent, and although a bit pricey, still gave super value.
