Good Value in Atmospheric Building
This was our second stay in the Altamira and our second good experience. The building is beautiful and well-maintained. Breakfast was plentiful with a good variety. While some might see the lack of in-room WiFi as a negative, this was a good reminder to get out of the room and explore the beautiful and unique town that surrounds it. It was easy to pull up in front to drop off and pick up luggage and it is just a few minutes from the municipal parking lot. We would definitely visit a third time!

Lovely old hotel
Great location right in the middle of the old town, very cool building and interior, very friendly helpful staff... Slightly noisy mostly due to how old the building is!

Hotel was wonderful, quiet and clean and really gave you a feeling of staying in an historic place. Hotel restaurant food was not very good. Tasteless and served tepid. However their desserts were excellent and the restaurant patio is charming.

Lovely hotel in perfect location
We were made welcome on arrival and had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking main street. Santiliana is such a quaint place. This hotel captures some of the history with beamed ceilings and creaky floors but modern facilities. In central location with parking nearby in local car park. Lots of restaurants and bars nearby to sit and enjoy local hospitality. Hotel staff pleasant and friendly. Good continental breakfast selection.
