Good hotel. Pleasant staff. Try to get a room with a beech view. A bit expensive.Good restaurant. Only one problem Wifi was a bit slow. I am happy to recommend this hotel. If we stay in Santander again, then we would probably stay here again. Parting underneath was good 17 euros a night. Hotel is next to the Casino and...

The Gran Hotel Sardinero is a very fine hotel, elegantly furnished and very sturdily built. It is in a great location, somewhat facing the Atlantic Ocean, kitty-corner to a small circular park and an ocean-side promenade. It has Santander's Italienate- Art Deco-style casino on the other side. Its ground floor restaurant has outdoor sitting which gives the diners a pleasant...

We choose because of the reviewed good. At our surprise, we paid for a baby bed (10€) that not acceptable. We paid for a parking (almost 20€). We arrived at the reception and took a room with balcony, very nice but had to wait 30mins to be ready because the room was not clean because we did not book it...

Seems like a old fashioned seaside hotel but completely renovated with great view to the seaside. We had a room at the topfloor with nice balcony, very good equipped. Breakfast is good, the surrounding great even in a city like Santander a real spot

We have spent a very nice night in this hotel. Our room was not too big, but with a great window front to the seaside and a large terrace. Bed was heavenly comfortable. We have made a great room dinner with this lovely view. The supermarket is located direct behind the hotel. The hotel restaurant we have not tasted, because...

Excellent The hotel looks traditional on the outside but has been completely gutted and modernised inside. There is certainly a wow factor when walking into the central atrium. Check in was swift with a welcome greeting, a request for a signature and scan of passports. No forms to fill out. Our sea view room on the second floor (228) had...

Lovely hotel just opposite the beach. Very clean and tidy. Only down side was the food in the restaurant in the evening was very poor but the breakfast was very tasty. The shops were a 25-30 min walk but very short taxi ride

Stayed here as part of a Bridge w/e tournament & got very good rates on a sea view room. From the outside it is a perfect turn of 20th century seaside Queen of a hotel, more like from a French resort. And inside is a perfect modern remodeling for excellent size of rooms and comfort. Absolutely no complaints - except...

Stayed for a 2 day business visit. Excellent beach front location. Classic design on the exterior with modern spacious rooms, many with outstanding views of the water. Very reasonable rates make this hotel the best value in Santander. Good breakfast and very friendly helpful staff. Taxi stand out in front of the hotel appears to have taxis round the clock....

“Probably the rooms with an ocean view are better. Ours was on the other side; no great view, but it was quiet”
