[Hotel Apartamentos Don Carlos - WGuides.com] This three-star apartment-hotel is located in El Sardinero, the summer hotspot for tourists. It is handy for both the Casino and Primera beach.
There are just under thirty appartments in total, measuring about 50m2 each. Each unit comprises a bedroom, living room with kitchen, bathroom and terrace.
Well situated for el Sardinero beach , Palacio Magdalena , the city centre ( 30 min walk), supermarket nearby. Clean , comfortable but no AC and we had to leave windows open at night which meant loads of music noise from bars on paseo and voices etc from the hotel s own bar terrace which was four floors below our apartment . There doesn t seem to be a curfew on the bars here unlike areas further south so it was around two in the morning a couple of times before we managed to fall asleep. This would be a problem on a longer trip in hot weather. We had a view of beaches if we looked over the side of our balcony , there is actually a very large white block of flats obscuring the view to the front.
The location of the hotel minutes from the beach is superb. We were in Room 501 which afforded a superb view of the bay. The apartment was spotless, and the maid made an excellent job of keeping it that way. It is also well located for supermarkets, and the staff were very friendly. (Although, we didn't have to use it (due to it being the low season), the underground hotel parking is a wee bit steep at 15 euro's a day). However, we would certainly make this our number one choice when we return. PS. In general, a lot of cities could learn from Santander as to the cleanliness of the streets / pavements roads.
Great location near to the fantastic beaches. Lovely view of beach from balcony. Close to supermarkets, bars and places to eat, bus stop to town centre 200mts away. Apartment was large with separate bedroom, lounge/kitchen and bathroom. Good housekeeping. Unfortunately reception staff did not speak English but we managed. Only thing lacking is a kettle in the room. Would stay here again.
Everything was great. Very good location, close to the beach, Casino. Very friendly staff. Underground parking under the booking fee. The apartment was comfortable with a wide terrace and a view of the ocean. Quiet. Well-equipped kitchen. Free Wi-fi very good. I recommend families or groups of friends.
- neighbourhood - close to the seaside, little cafes, bars and restaurants, casino, super market LUPA, bus stop to Santander city center - nice stuff - elevator - spacious apartment with big bathroom, cosy bedroom and living room with kitchen & dinning area, plus the balcony with table and chairs - perfect for 3-4 people - bath-tub in room 203, good pressure of water in the shower, hot water whenever we needed - clean towels, changed each day - big fridge in the room - kitchen equiped well, to make breakfast and dinner - comfortable beds (for 2 people in bed room and for 2 more in the living room - folded couch) - lots of closets to storage clothes, etc if you come for a longer stay As a recommendation I could just highlight that some kitchen equipment could be replaced with some new ones and maybe paper towels could be added. Kettle could be added also, to boil water for tea.…
