Hotel Silken Coliseum

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Well situated for catching the ferry. Only down side of stay room to hot the A/C was turned off, and traffic noise when opened window. Breakfast not the best we've had in hotels. Found a bar nearby for dinner.

This is a great place to base yourself from for discovering Santander. Location was brilliant, very central. Staff were very nice and helpful, hotel is very clean and room was lovely. I would definitely stay there again.

I have recently stayed here whilst on business. The room was really nice and comfortable. The quality of the breakfast was good. The only downside was the Q for the terrible coffee machine. Other than that great location and great staff

Just 10 minutes or so by taxi from the airport (18 euro, but it was late in the evening and we didn't want to wait for the bus). Very friendly & helpful reception staff, clean, comfortable and fair sized room (with a fridge) - good bathroom. Just a few minutes walk to the bus station, the water front, shops, bars and restaurants. We didn't include breakfast simply because we wanted to get out and about to make the most of our very short stay - but from what we saw it looked just fine. Excellent value for money - highly recommended.

I needed to change the date of my booking to 1 day earlier and was charged more than double of the original sale price. The room was clean and good but the air conditioner did not work properly and as a result the room was far too hot to enjoy a good night sleep.

Stayed in The Silken Coliseum in Santander Spain for three nights in September. Lovely Hotel with excellent staff and good food at a reasonable price. Visited lovely beaches in the area and had a greta time.

The hotel was comfortable and facilities good - but the staff were not very friendly. The restaurant 'manager' at breakfast could do with a total customer awareness course (abrupt, unhelpful and unwelcoming)

The hotel is well located and the staff are friendly and efficient, the hotel boasts safe underground parking and is within walking distance of most things. The food was very average and breakfast in particular was poor in term of both quality and choice. The rooms themselves are clean and well appointed but a little on the small side.

Only stayed one night before taking the ferry home. Excellent location for visiting the city centre and a five minute drive to the ferry port. Secure underground parking. Most comfortable bed of our road trip. Didn't have a chance to use the restaurant but the cafeteria was very good. Would definitely stay here again.

This Hotel is rated with 4 stars but the lobby is in disrepair, with dirty furniture with large tears in the fabric. I feel that it was overpriced for the quality of the facility. The buffet breakfast was great, and the staff was very helpful and didn't push us out when the service time came to an end.
