        The Abba Santander is situated in such a good position within the city. It is ideally placed for the bus and train stations as well as close to the ferry terminal.

        Unfortunately the hotel does not have a cafeteria or restaurant.

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        Location is perfect, very close to the Bus and train stations, and also quite close to Santander Town Hall, shopping areas and bar+restaurant areas. It is modern and clean, functional, comfortable bed and enough toiletries. Very good for a city 3-star hotel.

        I missed having free wifi / wired Internet in the room and common areas, nowadays it is unbelievable one has to pay for it. Also breakfast could be a bit over-priced for a 3-star hotel and increases a lot the cost of the stay.

      • Single
        8.2

        It is clean and comfortable

        Nice hotel, but services are a scam. 10 euro for a local call! 13 euro for a breakfast of toast and coffee. They claim to have an airport shuttle, but it is just a bus stop.

      • Single
        6.2

        it's really close to the bus station and made it convenient for me

        the bar was closed, and there are hardly any restaurant in a 500 m radius (at least I didn't find them!)

      • Couple
        8.2

        Nice room. Perfect bathroom. Perfect location next to bus and train station. Quick bus-connection with airport.

        Internet is very expensive (€ 6,- per hour). It should be free or included, just as television.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        We only stayed one night in order to catch the ferry to the uk the following day. The location of the hotel was excellent and we were able to park directly outside, a bonus. The hotel was excellent and we liked Santander very much. We have decided that in the future we will stay longer in Santander and can assure you that we will be staying with you. We are definitely going to recommend you to our friends. Thank you once again for making our short stay so enjoyable. Your staff both on arrival and upon leaving were friendly and helpful.

        We did have trouble finding you at first. It was only with the assistance of a local driver, who we met in the garage just down the road from you where we stopped to ask directions, that we found the hotel. He allowed us to follow him to the front of the hotel. Not a big problem, maybe some fault on our part also.

        best located. free wifi. friendly employees. nice bar royalty and great restaurant el machi next corner.

        beside bus depot. too noisy. small rooms. poor breakfast. too expensive.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        The Abba Santander was, as always, good. It has simple facilities but with so much available in Santander they are more than adequate as rooms and bathrooms are both satisfactory. Extremely convenient location for Plymouth ferry, bus and train stations as well as car hire and within easy reach of all the eating places one could wish for. All in all a very good place to stay for short or long breaks.
