TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Santillana Santillana del Mar
This hotels calls itself a museum, and the furniture in the public rooms attests to this. A charming hotel with lots of public space, reasonable sized rooms and bathrooms, good service, generous continental breakfast included in the price, free internet and WIFI, located right at the entrance to the historical centre.
Negatives are proximity to a busy highway (double windows virtually eliminate the noise, but as there is no A/C, on a warm days you need to open the windows). There is limited parking. If you don't arrive in time there will be no space and you'll have to park in paid lots nearby.

One of the cooks must have seen my confused face, and came out and asked if we needed help. They were actually the ones selling bus tickets! Who woulda thought... So his wife sold us some tickets to Pendueles, and we had about a 2 hour wait.
She offered her outside seating to us while we waited for the bus. Asked if we wanted water with a tone of voice that implied it ...
... behind we were running into new groups and even old people we hadn't seen in a while. We were thankful for today's short walk as it was very hot and humid.
We toured an 8th century castle which was just fascinating. Very surreal to be in such an old building like this. And for only 1.5 Euros you just can't pass it up.

Because of the fiestas going on, the supermarket was closed, must be nice. We found another little store that had more like specialty items, and therefore was pretty expensive. It was so packed full of bro's in there buying box wine and coke I could hardly handle it, it was pretty entertaining. We stood in line for like an hour, because the bro's had a system, one ...
