Hotels in Santander

Cantabria’s largest city is the perfect place for an elegant Spanish city break. In the past it was a favourite resort for Spanish royalty, and it still attracts its fair share of high flying visitors. It’s not sun baked like the cities on the southern coast, but Santander more than makes up for the often inclement weather with atmospheric streets, beautiful beaches, and breathtaking views. Whether you’re visiting Santander for a break or just passing through on your way to the ferry terminal, with Skyscanner you can find the perfect place to stay. 

Spain’s green coast is often overlooked by British tourists, but it certainly shouldn’t be. Santander’s local cuisine is a delight, the museums are fantastic, and there’s an excellent calendar of events to enjoy. That’s before mentioning the beach: sandy and pristine, it’s the focal point of the city during the summer months. There are lots of hotels in Sardinero, the beach neighbourhood. These are perfect if you’re planning a relaxing break complete with sunbathing, water sports, and lavish seafood dinners.

For a more traditional city break, choose a hotel in Santander’s buzzing city centre. From here you’ll be able to easily access the beach, but you’ll also have all of the historic sites on your doorstep. The cathedral, the maritime buildings of the port, and the bustling la Esperanza market are all must visits. The centre of town is also famous for its nightlife, thanks to the traditional restaurants and lively bars. 

If you hire a car, hotels in Santander make the perfect base for exploring the nearby Cantabrian countryside. There are lush forests, rolling green hills, and of course the Picos de Europa Mountain range: where you can ski in the winter and hike during the summer. If you get bored of Santander’s city beach, the Cantabrian coastline also boasts 200km of white sandy coastline and rugged cliffs, complete with hidden caves.
