Plaza Pombo B&B
Ranked #6 of 24 Santander B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 November 2016

My wife and I stayed at Plaza Pombo for two nights during a recent visit to Santander. The B&B is about a 10 minute walk from the bus/railway station and is situated in a beautiful square. We were allocated a nice room that looked out onto the square, it was compact but had all the facilities required including tea/coffee. Breakfast was adequate to start you off for the day and was a bit of a bonus as less places seem to offer it included in the price.
The Plaza Pombo was good value for money and I would have no hesitation in staying there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the square.

Place is nice and clean but the constant noise from street including glass recycling truck is unbearable no sleep whatsoever. First 4 hours constant people noise laughing shouting talking then glass recycling truck visited twice through the night and as dawn broke we had the seagulls no rest for the wicked. Even the sign in the window opposite gave the game away

We chose to stay here recently for one night as it was very central and close to the ferry terminal. The entrance lobby had atmosphere- low lights and antique furniture and the lady who welcomed us was pleasant and accommodating. Our room was basic with a shared bathroom. We stayed on a Sunday evening and our main complaint was the extraordinary amount of noise that prevented us sleeping. Sounds of wild partying, and then in the early hours of the morning the rubbish collectors came along and there was the sound of smashing glass as they progressed along the street.
The beds were comfortable, but our room had no blinds on the window so with the noise and the light we did not get much rest. We had no time to have breakfast which looked very generous with cereal, yoghurt, toast etc. We may have been unlucky as some of those things are beyond the control of the hotel, and it may be quite quiet during the week.

Great cheap price, at a very good location! The staff was super welcoming and so helpfull and friendly with giving information. This was really awesome. basic hostel rooms, and we had a room with a really small seperate bathroom. The toilet was down the hall but that wasn't an issue. We had breakfast there, fresh coffee and orange juice with a slice of toast and a croissant :) and that's all i needed! I was really happy with my experience there, certainly for that price!

My expectations were not too high as we had stayed before at Plaza Pombo, a few years back and not had a very good experience.
However, I had a nice surprise. The room was great - a good size, clean, tidy and nicely decorated. It even had tea facilities which was fantastic as most places in Spain don't seem to do this. I think others should follow there example!
We had to share a bathroom, but that was okay, as we were only staying one night after arriving by ferry from Portsmouth to Santander. We were picking up a car the following morning.
Had a good night's sleep and the breakfast was fine - again an improvement as the first time round I had cereal in a 'mug!. A nice selection for breakfast with good coffee.
Staff were very welcoming and helpful. You have to access the third floor via a lift when you enter the building where the hotel rooms are located.
It is very handy to the ferry terminal and perfect for an overnight stay - the price is also very reasonable.

Room Tip: Room 8 was good - quiet except for early morning when road sweeper goes by!
