Gran Hotel Sardinero - Santander - Building
3
8.9 Excellent (3,067 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Gran Hotel Sardinero in Santander, you'll be on the beach, steps from Gran Casino del Sardinero and a 3-minute drive from Palacio de la Magdalena. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
7.9 Good
Pros: The location
Cons: Breakfast could be better
7.5 Good
Pros: Clean hotel.
Cons: Breakfast at €16 was a rip off. Quality was poor. Even though included in price we went out for breakfast the second day.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Right on the beach. Easy access to Santander centre. We took a taxi there but walked back. Nice bars and restaurants close to the hotel. Fantastic shower!
Cons: It has been refurbished to a very high standard, but somehow it lacks character and feels very sterile.
7.9 Good
Cons: You have to pay extra for breakfast or walk across the road to nice cafe
7.1 Good
Pros: The breakfast was fine. Supermarket behind hotel if you want cheaper option. Evening meal facilities not available at hotel but only in cafe next door. Although opposite the Casino it is a hilly location. A walk after food should be aware of this.
Cons: No evening meal facilities in hotel. Plenty of local cafes in the area though.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great spacious room and bathroom. Comfy beds and the hotel has a modern look and feel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful hotel in a central location with the coolest car lift ever. Delicious breakfast too.
Cons: Nothing.
8.2 Excellent
Pros: View from the room. Ability to fully open the windows.
Cons: Expensive parking. A fair amount of street noise when the windows were open.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is easy to get to. Check in was seamless. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and the AC worked. The beach is across the street and the town is a €5 cab ride.
Cons: The WiFi is slow.
7.1 Good
Pros: Needs a gym for that price
Cons: Price!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The location of this hotel across from a long, beautiful beach is perfect. There is a walkway along the water that stretches for kilometers. There are buses every five minutes that go from a stop by the hotel into the center of the city in 10 minutes or less. The rooms were not big, but very comfortable and the bathrooms are immaculate. A big surprise for us was the restaurant. We arrived Sunday night after a long day of travel and decided to eat at the hotel. The food was excellent, although there were few people in the restaurant. The 25 euro menu included three full courses of your choice, mineral water and wine — a full bottle for the two of us. In fact, it was a bit too much food for us, but ala carte options were also available. We’d stay at this hotel again if we were in Santander.
Cons: I’m not a fan of the long pillows they have in Spain. Would prefer two smaller ones.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful hotel, location, the view from the bedroom balcony is amazing.
Cons: Nothing
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is very classy and elegant, with nice amenities and views over the city and harbor. The clientele is snubby and mostly over 60. The service is very good, at par with the facilities.
Cons: Most of the clientele is obnoxious, smoking, loud and pretentious. The management doesn't seem to be interested in controlling unruly behavior, such as parked private cars right in front of the main entrance of the hotel, or smoking right at the entrance of the restaurant.
10.0 Excellent
Cons: Very limited staff assistance, primarily at checking in and out.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is very Classic and has beautiful decorations
Cons: To go to the beach you need to walk a lot, and it’s better to go walking than by car because there’s not much parking
4.2 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was ok
Cons: Small room. Stained carpet. Noisy lift all night long. Double not single beds as requested. Restaurant meal barely warm, fish watery, maitre d surely. No help with luggage on arrival or departure ( have invalid wife). Tepid apology by reception staff when advised of my unhappiness.
7.1 Good
Pros: Wonderful location above the headland with great views (though a good 10 minute walk from the beach). Nice terrace; good buffet breakfast; helpful reception and restaurant staff.
Cons: Felt rather stiff and formal; staff helpful but without real energy and character. No swimming pool which is odd for a hotel of this standing. Spa/gym area small and rather fusty/old-fashioned. Overall a great location and elegant style but feels stuck in the past. Someone needs to shake the old spinster up and breathe some life into her!
7.9 Good
Pros: Excellent location, clean, nice morning terrasse
Cons: Nobody to receive you when you arrive at parking, no heating
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing to dislike
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I mention that I was celebrating silver wedding and they send us a nice card with a botle of champange to the room. Nice surprice !
9.6 Excellent
Pros: I had booked two delux double rooms for our arrival to Santander as there were no twin rooms available on that evening (it was full with a catwalk event). I'd just assumed it wouldn't be a problem for the hotel to source an additional cot-bed or similar and set it up in the room. This was thankfully done in the end, but it took a bit more persuasion than I would have though necessary for a five star destination. But in the end I was satisfied.
Cons: There was nothing to dislike.

Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff were very friendly
Cons: Nothing
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Friendly and enthusiastic staffs. Very helpful for parking the car. The hotel is located on a hill overlooking the city but a 10-minutes descending walk to the city center.
Cons: A little bit expensive for quite small suite. It looks unlike which showed in the photo on the website.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: everything is fine
Cons: n/a
7.1 Good
Pros: Very comfortable bed, lovely bathroom.
Cons: There was a window but it was a meter over my head and it was frosted. So you could not look out , making the room dark and claustrophobic. This fact that the room was virtually windowless was not mentioned at the time if booking. Had I realised, I wouldn't have booked.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: It is a very well designed little hotel with a great view to the ocean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with a big bed. Nice seafood restaurants in the neighborhood.
Cons: The breakfast could have been better value for the price, and there is no bar or restaurant available in the hotel.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff was wonderful! So helpful and accommodating! And we loved the location. On a hill overlooking the city but a short walk from the centre. A really special unique hotel in Santander. Hope to be back!
Cons: Our room smelled like mold. It was likely from the courtyard we overlooked onto. I'm not sure if all the rooms suffered from this or only ours.

7.1 Good
Pros: Great location. Nice staff
Cons: Small rooms - seemed expensive for the facilities
6.3 Good
Pros: Location
Cons: After 3 weeks of traveling through Europe this was our last stop before going home. I can truly say this was the worst and most expensive room we had. For a 4 star hotel unpleasant people working there with fake smiles. Room is a nice size with outdated bathroom and corrosion stains. Hallway has an old smell. I really didn't expect this in such a beautiful town.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We loved EVERYTHING about it! It was great value for our money, we wished we would've stayed longer. Good location close to the port and walkable to restaurants.
Cons: Nothing! Great experience :)
9.2 Excellent
Pros: When first looking to book a hotel in Santander, thought that somewhere near Sardinero beach would be the best option, but in fact, Vincci Puertochico is much better placed for the bars and restaurants... and is only a short walk away from Magdalena and Bikini beaches.
Cons: Nothing negative to say about hotel as was all good. Only little thing that could be improved was the instant coffee in room!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is situated in very good place near old town and basic POI. The clients can use the nearest public car parking at a special price. It's very convenient because the parking's entrance is located just in front of the door of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Cons: A breakfast was a little bit poor. Especially compared to the Gran Bilbao Hotel where we were two days earlier. It's only my personal opinion because my wife was fully satisfied.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location within walking distance to restaurants, beaches and attractions. Very comfortable, spacious, clean and well decorated room!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice style, cleanliness, and layout. Amazing shower.
Cons: When we reserved a room and we're halfway through the booking process there was a photo of the room with a sea view through the window. This is not true. The room has no sea view but was really quite and clean
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great hotel in great location
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Staff were very warm welcoming and helpful. Room spacious and comfortable.
Cons: Pictures very deceptive. There’s no views from the rooms and no balconies. The sun terrace is their street cafe!
2.0 Mediocre
Cons: 1. WIFI does NOT work. Missed deadlines! I was unable to do work because of wifi not working, missed important deadlines! 2. Every door slams so loud that sounds like bomb. 3. Smells cheap and kinda nasty. 4. Receptionists are incompetent and showed attitude instead of trying to resolve the problems related o WIFI. 5. The day I was leaving they proposed to change room. I thought it was clear expression of mocking and making fun of a customer. 5. In room 506, there is a light on the building outside near the window, which so strong that at night seems like you are the beach in front of the sun and the curtains do not help. I am not a light sleeper and I fall asleep easily, during this 4 day stay I could not sleep because of that and extremely loud door slamming. Overall experience was horrible. I flew across the globe from Los Angeles for work and due to mainly almost not working WIFI my trip was next to nothing. I feel I was robbed. This hotel does not deserve to be 4 star one.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Bed very comfortable and staff very helpful and friendly.
Cons: Slightly overpriced.

Pros: The view from our room was amazing
Cons: A lot of steps to get to the hotel. But there is a road to the hotel however we were walking.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Staff were very helpful and spoke excellent English. Efficient and seamless check-in experience. Room was basic, but very clean and worked for our purposes. Closely located to shopping and the waterfront. Parking is a few metres up the street in a designated garage accessible by key; we found the instructions very straightforward. We had breakfast at La Polar both mornings of our stay based on a recommendation from the desk staff - it was terrific and we loved the special (a well-seasoned cheese and ham Spanish tortilla with a perfectly made cafe con leche for 3 euro.) If you're looking for a budget room in close proximity to a wide variety of restaurants, bars, shopping, sightseeing, etc, I would recommend this place.
Cons: The lighting wasn't very good in our room, but we didn't mind this too much.
9.2 Excellent

9.2 Excellent
Pros: A shower base would be better.
Cons: Very friendly staff, good location, plenty of local bars for breakfast. Parking quite near, bit tight, did not help person next to me was inconsiderate. Not huge room but fine for a short stay.

Pros: Friendly staff. Great location for the beaches, well connected with local cheap bus routes for the city centre. Hotel menu deal was really god value for what you got. Really clean hotel
Cons: Half of the rooms have really small terraces, which are only really balconies. As we were traveling with our teenage son, we struggled to fit into the space together. We asked to move, as we were staying a week, the staff were able to do this for us after a couple of days. The new room had a big terrace with table and was much better suited for a party of three. The breakfast options are

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed in this hotel for one night only, after the 24hour Brittany Ferry crossing from Portsmouth. The hotel was in a good location, near the beach, and looked as though it had been recently done up. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable, with a good shower. We had a very nice dinner in the restaurant and an excellent breakfast. All in all good value and a very good choice.

6.7 Good
Pros: The hotel staff were excellent. Every room has a view of the sea. Two minute walk from the beach.
Cons: The restaurant food was poor. The “spicy” sauce with our octopus was not spicy. The waiter said yes I know, it is just called spicy even though it isn’t. The waiters found customers an inconvenience, trying to rush you all the time. Asked us if we enjoyed our meal before we had it. The bar manager was simply rude. One visit to the bar was enough. The breakfast staff were clearing all the food away whilst we were still eating. Wanted sone fruit but they had cleared it all away. The shower is an over bath shower but there was no seal between the shower glass and bath so the bathroom flooded every time it was used. Bathroom could do with a fan. Parking was difficult every time. No balconies for rooms with three occupants.

Pros: The view, the restaurant Panorama downstairs is amazing, was there every night of the trip, the beds I loved slept like a baby and did I say the view?
Cons: There are no kettles to boil hot water.. we stayed as a group and are coffee drinkers.. very unusual as we have stayed in many hotels across Europe and to not have a kettle was a bit weird.. even a small one... so had to order hot water that was barely enough for three of us and cost us 7.50€... also no toilet brush!

7.1 Good
Pros: Room cleanliness, Staff was friendly.
Cons: Breakfast- in restaurant downstairs, not a buffet. Its more like you can take only 1 snack and a coffee and juice. Anything else you have to pay additionally.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: very clean, recently renovated. Great hotel restaurant with excellent and affordable lunch menu. Directly on the main street. Necessary to take bus to the beach, but so is it in Santander, either you are close to the beach or in the city. You can't be close to both.
Cons: No safe in the room. Leaving stuff on reception safe without written confirmation about what is given. It is not clear what is benefit of booking breakfast. It is cheap (4eu) but you don't get more than you could normally get in restaurants for same price(even in that same restaurant).

Pros: Extremely convenient, friendly hotel right on the alameda in Santander: Perfectly located with a lovely cafeteria attached - perfect for morning coffee / breakfast or dinner. Absolutely easy walking distance to the center of Santander, and right on the Alameda - one of the loveliest walking space /public area in the city. The hotel is impeccably clean and well-maintained (the air condition is AWESOME - a rarity in Europe) and the bathrooms very large, especially for European standards: great water pressure. It's our new 'home away from home' when we visit family in Santander.

Cons: Breakfast was taken in the public restaurant in an area cordoned off for residents. Food was ok BUT you were allowed only one juice, one coffee, one pastry or equivalent. If you wanted for example another coffee you had to pay restaurant prices. Given the price of the accommodation this was well out of order
7.1 Good
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful
Cons: Very noisy, any sound echoed from inside the hotel and also from outside.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The guy on the front desk was super helpful. I’d forgotten that I booked 2 rooms (my daughter ultimately didn’t travel) and he got the charge for the extra room dropped without my even asking). He also helped me to print something off. This is a simple, clean business hotel. But great value and ideal if you are taking the ferry back to the UK

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Lovely revamped room
Cons: I had requested an early check in. When I arrived my room wasn't ready (which was fine). It still wasn't ready 2.5 hours later which was starting to get frustrating. The gentleman who checked me in was very pleasant however his colleague (lady with frizzy hair) was quite abrupt and far from pleasant when I went to enquire if my room was ready. The property does have parking, however at €22 per day is VERY steep particularly when the hotel isn't even city centre.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast we extremely good, as was the location. It suited us well because we wished to visit the beach easily. They hotel appeared to be very happy to lend us beach towels too. It's so good to be able to hop on a bus so easily & that means being able to visit much of Santander.

Cons: nada
7.1 Good
Pros: The check in experience was ok
Cons: The bed wasn't comfortable at all. The staff at the restaurant was horribly rude to both myself and the friend I was traveling with. We didn't eat together, he went into the restaurant before I did and the waiters were rude to him. I went in 1/2 hour later not knowing he had been there and they were insufferable, I walked out.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The food in the restaurant is smashing. Don't go out for breakfast, get some tortilla into you first!
Cons: I didn't have a car, so i would have preferred to have been in town as there aren't any night buses, but the buses during the day to the city are quick and easy. I stayed here for quiet beaches, but the beaches were quite busy!
4.6 Okay
Pros: It was a clean and quiet place to rest after a long day of walking
Cons: 50 euro for a tiny double room. The bathroom had no soap, only some plastic bags containing gel that you had to rip open with your teeth. Small shower and no shower mat. The bedroom window opened inward and blocked the way out and to the bathroom. The staff was clueless and mostly non existent. Too much money for too little.
7.5 Good
Pros: Location - easily reachable by public transportation from Santander, very little and silent village. Two wonderful beaches are in the walking distance and the cliffs are just amazing!
Cons: Maybe the information is not updated, but there wasn' t possible to order breakfast. Neither was possible to pay with card, only cash. Check-in was a bit weird because owner - pay attention, the reception is in reality in bar, not in reception room and the receptionist is bartender at the same time - was really suprised and seemed to have no information about my booking, I had to show confirmation in my phone. The heating system in the room is very noisy, so better use earplugs.
6.3 Good
Pros: Clean and welcoming. Beautiful coastline to explore but you have to like walking! Excellent tortillas.
Cons: Very firm, squeaky bed. Room opened onto the bar area so very noisy until late at night.

5.8 Okay
Pros: The bed was comfortable and the location was perfect.
Cons: The room was not great in many regards- all the rooms have carpet (gross). Due to this the rooms smell. I mean, they allow dogs so... imagine. Second, when I opened the mini fridge it had nasty old cheese looking crumbs all over it and 2 black pubic hairs on the door. I really dI'd t feel like putting anything in there. (Really nasty... I know it's 3 stars but it should be clean). The bathroom had a tub in it.... an old-Looking tub and the hairdryer only let out cold air. Not a great place especially as we paid over 600 euros for 3 nights! Maybe for 250-300 it would be a good value but at these prices it robbery!
