this was a gem of a place to stay. An old medieval convent dressed with antique furniture and a beautiful common area to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. Perfect romantic location.

Quaint hotel
Parking limited and our car was bumped. We asked if we could borrow an iron to just refresh some clothes and was told there wasnt one !! it's a lovely quaint hotel with an easy few steps to the heart of Santillana. Breakfast was plentiful

Great hotel, terrific location
Well it the Hotel Santillana was just great. The room was fine as even as a 'double' with the extra bed as we were three, we still had plenty of room. We didn't dine there apart from breakfast, but that was hearty with as much as you would want. The hotel's location, right at the starting point for the pedestrianised town, couldn't be better. The hotel itself has lots of very comfortable public sitting areas, all delightfully furnished and full of antiques, especially clocks! I would thoroughly recommend it.

Great hotel, Friendly staff, love the very spanish deco. Will stay again and again. On our last visit the hair dryer and shower head holder was faulty. But did not disappoint us on previous visits. Recommended.
