A safe, easy to find hotel in Santander.
This was a good overnight stay. Being British we did miss not having a hot breakfast but the Continental breakfast was well provided.

Friendly staff and the room was clean. Hotel quite far from Santander centre so you'll need to take a taxi to get there - or the airport as it's in an industrial area. We did have an issue with cigarette smoke coming through from next room though.

Be careful here
We were very pleased with the room and staff but we parked our motorhome in the car park as discretely as possible, sadly it was broken into over night. We asked about the CCTV cameras that were evident in the car park and whether there would be images that would help us find the offenders but reception told us the cameras didn't work. So my advice to anyone staying there is be sure to take all your valuables into the hotel with you. There were always a lot of young men hanging around in the area. We saw several and we were only there 18 hours.
