The hotel was beautifully restored and in a great location.
Location outstanding. Staff friendly. Hotel very authentic, nostalgic flair.
Bedding not good. Very old matrasse and unstable frame. Felt also very nostalgic.
Pretty much everything was good, friendly staff, beautiful property, clean rooms etc.
No internet access in the rooms made it difficult for me to work
The interior decor was great. Breakfast was good with choice
A lift would have helped as I have a back problem and was on 2nd floor However all else was good
Amazing property, beautiful location, staff, and property, felt like we were back in the 16th century with air condition.
restaurant was poor. The free breakfast in the morning (included in the stay), had little to offer other than hot coffee and bread. The property advertises chocolate e churros (a spanish staple), but neither were on the breakfast menu. Quality of dishes at night were also of poor quality. Nice enough staff, beautiful decor, just poor and limited menu.
An incredible 15th/16th century building that has lost none of its medieval atmosphere and charm. Excellent service from the staff, and the restaurant is one of the best in the town – don't trust the middling Booked.net reviews, the food is fantastic.
Very old buildings and interesting area. Common rooms were very tasteful and well set out for guests and this provides an opportunity to talk to others.
Room was rather basic.
Quiet seating area with WiFi. Friendly staff. We have booked again for later in the year. Highly recommended.
One staff in the restaurant and she found it difficult to cope when busy. Nothing to put you off your stay.
A beautiful property in a mideviel town.
Character and quality of the building, furniture and room
Perfect in every way .. We recommend the lovely Hotel Altamira for all reasons .. Don't book anywhere else. It's better than most paradors!
Lovely period building furnished with traditional furniture. Very helpful receptionist who allowed us to store our bicycles on the groundfloor beside reception. Comfortable seating area with Wifi reception on the first floor. Excellent 'Menu del Dia' with very large portions (one meal would have been enough for two!)
The breakfast spread looked amazing but there were few sugar free options, all the cereals were sweetened. Some plain oats would be a lovely addition.
Lounge areas - good seating, various sizes of tables - good to meet up with other guests. Handy car park and good location in middle of village. Receptionist helpful on arrival
Breakfast was fairly basic
Very interesting place. So close to santander. Cobbled streets.lovely place. Hotel beautiful. Typically Spanish. Dark wood, old beams etc
Excellent location, very nice old building with modern facilities. The room was large and adequately furnished.
The breakfast could be better. We could park overnight in front of the hotel, but I think this only because it was low season. Otherwise, there is a public parking space not far from the hotel.
