Good hotel Wrong room
This hotel is well located in Santander's upmarket Sardinero area. Just across the road from the beach and restaurants. Free parking nearby although it may take a while to find a space. The hotel achieves a high standard generally. We had only one problem. Our room was close to a residential block, and for privacy we had to keep the net curtains closed. They do have rooms which do not have this problem

Room was not the best, I would say one of the worst outlooks onto air conditioning systems and a car park. Room was stuffy and air conditioning ineffective
