Staff really friendly, room comfortable but requires upgrading along with toilet. Damp/mould on ceiling tile when you walk in and electrical issue before the air con kicks in. Stayed in the junior suite looking onto beach but sadly not worth the money. Cleaning staff really good and other rooms looked modern.

Convenient for beach

Posted Aug 19, 2016
Hotel is clean, comfortable and convenient for beach. Not convinced it merits four stars as it is a bit tired though. Eating places are a bit limited close to the hotel. It is about a half hour walk to the town centre. The big downside is parking as this proved almost impossible close by.

Hotel across from Beach

Posted Jan 14, 2016
Pros: The hotel was conveniently located and the views over the beach and bay were very pleasing.
Cons: My "king" bed was actually two twins that were placed sided by side. The mattress was not very comfortable and extremely firm.
Location: Hotel is across from a very nice beach and there are several parks near-by. It is also very close to several good restaurants some right on the water.
The Silken RIo was a very adequate hotel for my business trip to Santander. The room was clean and I had a ocean-view room. However, the room was fairly small with limited amenities.

Great location, great front desk, average breakfast

The hotel is well located, clean and service was good. Breakfast was the only thing that can be improved. Some sandwiches were never replenished. Some stale bread (with a mold on it) bread was served to customers.

Great place to stay in Santander, really.

For the price we paid for it, it was quite luxurious, very pleasant stay. Right ahead the sea, next to nice restaurants and walks along the beach, it is perfectly located. We did not have a room with a view, but on the 6th floor. The room was really neat and spacious, the bathroom (with a bidet :-)) clean and confurtable. The WIFI was no fault. Yes, really recommended.

Good hotel close to beach.

Posted Jul 27, 2015
Pros: Cleanliness and value for money
Cons: Breakfast.
Location: Good location close to beach and easy to get into Santander and excellent restaurants.
Very few people speak English here and our Spanish isn't great either. The staff were fantastic and went out of their way to try and help us.
