My wife and I stayed at this hotel for several nights and were pleased with our choice. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the bedroom was clean and a good size. Outside the bedroom, there was a terrace with a table and chairs that was accessible from the room via French windows. The breakfast was fantastic with lots of choice and all the produce was clearly fresh that day. As our stay was during the summer the restaurant wasn't available for evening meals etc so I can't comment on that. The hotel is in a good location and not too far a walk from the centre (although if you are elderly or have any mobility problems the location wouldn't be ideal as there is a steep hill up to the hotel when walking from the city). Overall, I'd highly recommend this hotel and I'd be happy to stay there again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Las Carolinas Hotel-School is located within a plot of land with the same name, "Las Carolinas", and is managed by the Cantabrian Hotel and Catering Business Association. Young catering students and chefs are trained here. It occupies a XIX century restored mansion which has 500m2 gardens with two splendid magnolias and a thousand-year-old yew, among other specimens. It subsists in a truly rural environment within the city. Las Carolinas Hotel-School is also located at the top of a hill with spectacular views of Santander and is only 10 minutes away walking distance from the city centre. The Hotel School Project aims to endow the catering and hotel industry with qualified personnel. It seeks to do so by training professionals within the industry's different fields of work. All of the association's training activities are gathered within this single space. These training programmes have been designed to be both theoretical and practical, focusing on kitchen, dining room and hotel management. In order to offer adequate training, there is nothing better than a training centre where students can put the theory they have previously learnt into practice. The main building has thus been turned into a small hotel with 13 rooms and a dining room with a capacity for 40. It operates as a conventional hotel and catering business. The rooms at the Hotel School are decorated in s simple manner, with light wooden furniture and floors. They are all equipped with two beds or a double-bed, a desk, central heating, a bath, a hairdryer and amenities. To start the day off, a full buffet breakfast is also included within our accommodation price. During the academic period, a menu is offered at lunch time which includes an appetizer, a first course and a second course. On Thursday and Friday evenings we prepare a sampling menu. All meals must be booked in advance. All the services at the hotel school are offered by industry students and workers, with a special focus on personalization and quality. ... more less
