    The location is good and have a nice decoration inside.

    We stayed at the top roof with a good view. But the bath room was stinking. Breakfast was disappointing as they don't have fresh fruits, no eggs, no vegetables. Only sweet breads and toast. Also the room has no safe and no refrigerator. They have to consider more facilites.

    We have stayed at Altamira on three occasions now. We have always been given a warm welcome and the staff have been most helpful in every way possible. The delightful design and decor coupled with good facilities and service to a very high standard has always been much appreciated.

    The hotel itself is fantastic. Lots of character and superb location. The photos in the website did not do it justice.

    You could hear people from other rooms, and the breakfast was not great.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The hotel, its staff, its ambience, its location, its standard of hospitality, and its value for money all are excellent. We would have no hesitation in preferring to book at the Altamira if we were ever travelling in the area within 50km of Santillana... Well done the manager, and his/her training programme.

    Beyond any reproach on any front.

    That it has a great location and good food. Liked the decoration of the reading rooms.

    Located in a beautiful old building right in the middle of town. It's like stepping back in time. Loved it!

    The staff were very nice and helpful. The house is beautiful.

    The bedroom was very badly lit. The TV was small and channels too few. The bed linen and towels were old.

  • Older travelers

    Friendly staff and quaint hotel.

    Unfortunately there was a disgusting smell in our room which seemed to be a musty smell coming from cupboard. This made it very difficult to stay in the room for long and it spoilt our stay. If the room had not smelt bad we would have rated this hotel higher, but it really was horrid.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    A good base for exploring the region. Lots of history about the hotel

    The breakfast offered a huge selection but everything was really a bit "average" at best....everyone in the room said the same thing. Also, real shame that they felt the need to have the TV on...bad idea

    The hotel is located 5 minutes from the car park and is near lots of shops, bars and restaurants. It has lots of character furnished with antiques in keeping with the rest of the buildings on the street. The bed was comfortable and the room was a good size.

    The walls were extremely thin so noise travelled easily.

    This is a very charming hotel in an old palace. Our room was on the top floor with a nice view over Santillana and the nearby hills. It was a very pleasant stay. The reception staff was very nice, the same cannot be said about the restaurant staff. Anyway, it is a good hotel in a very magical town. We had a great time. The Altamira caves nearby are a must see!

    Some of the rooms face a busy street, being a bit noisy during the day - at night the town is very quiet. The bed in the room was small. Beware that there is no elevator in the hotel.

    Convenience in the old city

    Right in the heart of Santillana del Mar and loaded with atmosphere. Our room was comfortable with lots of charm. There was a 10 percent discount in the restaurant for hotel guests and we thoroughly enjoyed the tourist menu. The staff at reception and in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was incredibly varied and generous.

    Wi-fi is only available in the public sitting area, but it's a great public sitting area.
