Hotel Bahia

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We always stay at the Bahia when we take the ferry to and from Santander. The hotel is very well located being about 100 meters from the town with views either of the sea and ferry port or the town (which is lovely). The rooms are large and nicely furnished with large comfortable beds and well organised bathrooms stocked with the usual shampoos, etc. The hotel has a nice cafe which seems quite popular with the more well to do locals. Drinks and snacks can be had seemingly most of the day and they are of reasonable quality. The hotel restaurant is rather nice with a good menu and very pleasant service. The only downside of the restaurant is that it doesn’t open till 8:30 pm which is rather late for many British diners (like us). Perhaps one of the key aspects for people travelling in a car full of luggage is the hotel’s underground car park which whilst a little tight is absolutely fine and a great secure place in which to park. The parking cost extra (16 Euros) but is worth it I believe. Overall we love staying in the hotel for its comfort, convenience, good value and pleasant (good English speaking) staff. We wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Santander.

I would definitely recommend this hotel the price was very reasonable the room was clean and well fitted and quiet. The hotel is very close to the Art Gallery Centro Botin and the water it’s also very easy to get into town from the hotel everything really in Santander is within walking distance. Coffee was very good but I’m afraid I didn’t eat here so I can’t tell you how the food was.

Very nice, very clean, warm and comfortable room with sea (ferry port) view. Very friendly and supportive staff. Private car parking is in underground and you have to pay for each day around 20 euros. Hotel is gorgeous and has very good location, just need “create” space to build sauna and Jacuzzi for customers like my wife and I. I can highly recommend this hotel to other people.

This is a good hotel. The location is perfect after getting off the ferry. The rooms are spacious, nicely furnished with a large comfortable bed. My only request would be a complimentary bottle of water instead of all the snellies in the bathroom. Saying that the in room mini bar prices are reasonable.

A superior room with exquisiet night time views of the harbour and Christmas lights from the 10th floor. The jacuzzi offered relaxation after a 24 boat trip on the ferry. Service was top!! Highly recommended.

Ferry arrived in the evening and I had long drive to southern spain so decided to stopover. Hotel is v close to port in fact could see the vessel fm my hotel room, hotel v nice, cafeteria v nice and great atmosphere, room was great, overall great experience.

1st class hotel in prime location.Friendly and efficient staff. Professional and courtious. Ana especially was very helpful. Clean and luxurious.Would highly recommend for short and long stays. Perfect for ferry.

There is more to an international hotel than the rooms. The atmosphere was cold and uninviting. Check in/out was efficient. The reception staff aloof barely lifted their heads, no one smiled, no pleasant greetings. However rooms were as you would expect from a four star hotel very clean and spacious plenty of hanging space and drawers, safe and mini fridge. Bathroom large and well equipped, hairdryer and plenty of towels, very good shower. Satellite tv 20+ channels but no English Channel not even bbc world news. WiFi good in the room. Location very good in the heart of the town a few minutes walk from the train and bus station, and main shopping area. Would return to this hotel and would definitely recommend it for its great location.

Starting with a great location and a very good view (mine was facing the old part of town), the restaurant is clean and modern, with a much appealing design philosophy. The rooms are well maintained and taken care of and both heating and air con work. In the bathroom you have a large assortment of available amenities, including a tooth brush. Something you don't see very often anymore. Sleep quality is excellent. I had no trouble whatsoever. Noise? I didn't hear any. Breakfast has all your usual suspects from bacon and eggs to toast. If I am in the area I expect I'll stay here again. Only negative: Parking. More specifically leaving the parking area. Don't take the ramp! Use the elevator. The ramp is tight as all hell for a larger car.

Arriving in the evening from the UK via Ferry, this was the perfect place to spend a night before our tour around Spain. Firstly, the hotel is very well signposted, but more importantly, they tell you where to drive, to access their car park, which would be difficult without them. They have a wonderful underground car park, where the vehicles descend by lift. We have a very large 4 x 4 and parking in Spain safely can be challenging. We were allocated a larger parking bay, which was perfect. I am a light sleeper, and requested a quiet room (Queen Room with Sea View, # 602) which was a corner room, huge, with wonderful views. The bed was very comfortable and the shower good. Wi-Fi was good all around the hotel. We chose to have a light breakfast in the cafeteria, consisting of Croissant, fresh orange juice and coffee. It was great and a decent price. The hotel is convenient for the whole of the city, and just in front of the Ferry Terminal. We shall definitely stay here whenever we need to spend a night in Santander. The only thing missing, were Tea & Coffee facilities in the room (but available downstairs, in the cafetaria).
