8/10 Very good

Comfortable large room
Hotel was OK. It has a good location right by the beach. Restaurant closed very early around 20:30 which seemed a bit strange but so did some of the restaurants nearby. It may have been related to the bank holiday the following day. Car park is accessed by a car lift.

Modern 4* in the best location in Santander
Very nice hotel, modern, clean and great location. Probably one of the only hotels in Santander which is is modernised. The price and 4* rating are appropriately aligned. The only criticism I have about my stay is that the pillows in the room are absolutely awful, thin, poor quality and not comfortable. Breakfast buffet is nice with a large selection.

One of my favorite places I've stayed. For the price, feels special. Loved the power blinds and how dark they made the room. Can't beat it's proximity to Sardinero beach. This is where rich Spaniards stay, but it didn't seem overpriced.

Muy poca empatia!!
Hotel precioso y bien situado, muy confortable y silencioso, situado en primera linea de playa pero con muy mal servicio. Viajaba por trabajo y me levanté a las 6.30 porque supuestamente la cafeteria abría a las 7. Nadie fue capaz de hacerme un café ni en el bufete ni en la cafeteria porque las 7.30 son las 7.30, ni mas ni menos!! Una pena, no volveré!!!

The rooms and comunal areas were good. I didn't like being told if I wanted dinner I had to take it in the café and not the dining room. Consequently I didn't have dinner there.
