FERRY & HOTEL
Hotel abba Santander, Santander
Spain > Cantabria > SANTANDER
Part of the prestigious abba chain, the abba Santander is a boutique hotel with chic, modern accommodation that is stylish and comfortable. There is a bright and spacious breakfast room on the first floor and the pleasant reception lounge is a nice place to sit and relax. The air conditioned bedrooms are well equipped and have a mini bar, safe, hairdryer & trouser press plus the added bonus of complimentary tea and coffee making facilities. And, as the ferry terminal and city centre are only minutes away, this is certainly more than just a convenient place to stop before going further into Spain - or before taking the ferry home. The train station is just behind so why not take the opportunity to visit Liérganes for the day. It's a great place to sample the famous chocolate con churros (hot chocolate and doughnuts) and there is also an interesting English owned beer factory there that is open to the public and includes tasting. And when you return, before going back to the hotel for the night, you could have dinner in one of the restaurants in the fishing port quarter (2k) - Barrio Pesquero - where they still cook delicious paellas and grilled fish on traditional open fires outside the restaurants. Small dogs only accepted.
