    I saw lots of reviews recommending this town.

    I saw lots of reviews recommending this town. It was not for me. The planetarium, which many raved about? Closed. Has been closed for a while, actually. And apparently when it was open, it wasn't open to walk-ins. Tour groups only, pre-booked, minimum of 5 people. Many restaurants were reservation only, actually. Many more were closed. Saw my first homeless tent encampment ten minutes after arriving in the city. Graffiti everywhere. So many ATMs on Google maps, marked closed. Shops closed or going out of business. "Rebajas" signs everywhere. So many multi-lingual beggars. Lots of smashed windows, sadly. The town looked like some of the worse areas of other cities I've been to, but all over. Even the church, which was recommended as a very nice building, had homeless and beggars in it. I was there on Sunday (so many things closed) and Monday. For a place supposedly well known for it's meals of fresh fish, mine was bland at best. For a Spanish town, surprisingly few tapas places.

    Santander is so quaint.

    Santander is so quaint. The historic buildings are beautiful. There are so many bars, tapas bars and restaurants everything is so easy to find and within walking distance. It just felt so clean and just a lovely place to visit we will be back. We went to Bilbao for the day on the bus from the bus station, but pre book your seats as it’s always busy. It takes about 1.5 hours but well worth it then you can jump on the tram line into the centre There were too many bars and restaurants to mention but the one right outside the hotel was wonderful too.

    We used Santander as a base to explore prehistoric caves, historical sites and the surrounding parks. Six days barely got us started. I will say going in January worked well as temperatures were mild and rain was sporadic. We didn’t leave enough time to explore all the city but people were friendly, there were new things to see everywhere and the food is great.

    My wife and I have visited Santander on several occasions, but did not go into the city centre on this occasion as we wanted a hotel that was within a short journey to the airport for an early flight the following morning. The Hotel Chiqui facing the Sardinero beach fitted our requirements perfectly.

    This is a lovely hotel near several beaches in the Sardinero neighborhood of Santander. Each room has a theme and ours was Tokyo. It was very comfortable and clean with a modern bathroom. The staff are all very welcoming and gave us good information about restaurants and transportation. The breakfast was one of the best we’ve had with so many choices of fresh foods. We liked being in a quiet neighborhood, yet close to some lovely beaches and many restaurants.

    Le Petit Boutique Hotel is situated a few hundred yards from the Sardinero beach and within easy walking distance of the Casino and eating places. The rooms are themed on places around the world - we were in New York, on the first floor with patio doors. Fresh bottled water provided each day. The hotel team are charming, welcoming and helpful and the property is kept exceptionally clean. The breakfast was good, fresh fruits, breads and preserves.

    Very enjoyable ensuite room, spacious with lovely bathroom. Well maintained. Great helpful staff. Nice extensive breakfast too! Just a short walk to the town center and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again. I travel by motorcycle and was immediately offered a parking space in the closed garage. All staff members were very friendly and helpful and made me feel most welcome. I liked the art theme of the hotel too.

    Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Staffed reception is a bonus and very helpful. Well priced for Santander. Reasonable location about a mile from town walking through a road tunnel, or half a mile from the large beach in the other direction. Cafe, bar and restaurant on the ground floor of the building is excellent for breakfast or evening meals. The hotel is actually the first floor of an private apartment block.
