FERRY & HOTEL
Hotel Silken Rio Santander, Santander
Spain > Cantabria > SANTANDER
This very comfortable, professional hotel is in a superb position opposite the Sardinero beach, 3k from the ferry terminal. Its restaurant has an excellent reputation with the locals and you can be sure of a good night's sleep in the air conditioned bedrooms - Brittany Ferries' clients are accommodated in rooms with a sea view except in high season. Around the corner you'll find the casino and a selection of bars where the locals gather in the evening, whilst just opposite is the Balneario de la Concha restaurant where the large picture windows afford fabulous views of the beach - it's not cheap but it's worth the expense for the outlook alone! And after a nice dinner or relaxing drink what better than to stroll along the lovely promenade that leads up to the Magdalena Palace through beautiful gardens. There is also a regular bus service into the city centre. Garage parking approx. 16-18€/night. Taxis are available from the terminal and cost 7-11€ plus a small charge for luggage or, alternatively, you can catch a bus from outside the post office (200m) which costs approximately 1.3€ per person.
Restaurant only open mid June-mid Sept. Closed Sun. Cafeteria open all year.
