We had a very good stay in this hotel. Easy to find, great location for beach and city. Was a very clean hotel and all the staff were very helpful. Would recommend this hotel for a great stay in Santander.

The room was modern and clean and the bed comfortable. The biggest attraction was the location - the ocean view was splendid (room with a sea-side view). The breakfast could be nicer and the coffee stronger, but nevertheless I strongly reccommend this hotel.

Stayed at hotel in sea facing room ,air con did not work that well this is the only criticism I can give as hotel opposit beach and had all fertility s as said in there brochure I would say some of the rooms are a bit dated however it looks like rooms are being refurbished and the staff helpful we would stay again

The hotel was clean and tidy, we had a magnificent oceanfront room, from the balcony you could see across the street a great, fine sandy beach. The garage was adjacent to the entrance of the hotel and the city center could be walked.

Good experience overall (and excellent Spanish breakfast). We were not helped by the front desk staff when struggling to carry our numerous suitcases and 2 golf bags, which was not very cordial. The view from the room was very Nice despite we had no balcony (as shown in the site when we booked)

If you stay at a four stars hotel, you know what to expect... unfortunately, this hotel is not! Still, the staff is friendly and breakfast is good. The view is also amazing! The rooms are pretty old and the AC does not work properly. As said it is a nice hotel but do not expect a four stars one!

We stayed in central Santander for the first 2 days and then moved to the Silken Rio . It was one of our best ideas. The hotel was spotless and the view from our room beautiful. We can recommend the restaurant although we only ate there once as the set menu did not vary.

the staff was friendly and helpful . Also very nice view of the beach and free parking. The location was also good and in the whole it was a very good value for money. I would highly recommend this hotel if you visit Santander

great location for the beach. very friendly staff. bedroom had a sea view. breakfast is continental but there was hot bacon and eggs. local bus stops close by every bus except the number 5 took you into the city.

Lovely location but nasty bathroom with mould and a broken and cracked sink. Oh yes, and there is one iron for 89 rooms. Receptionist just shrugged shoulders when I suggested he bought more. I am sure there are nicer hotels in what looks like a lovely town. Look at my photos
