You get what you pay for. Therefore, do not expect much. My room was small and you cannot control the AC or heater. My main dislike was a smoke odor in the room when I booked a non-smoking room. The staff was very friendly, though, and the location is pretty good (near restaurants, the main bus station, the cathedral, etc). So, overall... If you are passing just for a day or two and want a cheap hotel... this is for you. Otherwise, check other options.

4/5 Good

Great Value in Central Santander.
Just one night here following a longer trip. Wanted to be close to the airport bus for the following morning. This is a basic property, nothing wonderful but OK for what I paid. One real positive was that the internet connection was very good.

People very friendly, with 24 hour reception services. I accepted that as a 2 star one could not expect too much, however, the grouting in the bathroom would have significantly been more presentable with a clean. The heating did not work (accept the last day in one section). Not really a problem during the day as mild weather. However, the mornings were cool and it would have helped with drying out some the mould issues and the bath towel. The wifi only worked in the lobby.
