    Hotel Alhambra is a wonderful boutique hotel with so much personality and history that it's a destination in itself. The hosts are equally wonderful. We felt like esteemed guests at a private mansion sometime in a previous century. The hotel is surrounded by a historical old town that looks like a postcard and is great for evening strolls. It's conveniently located for driving and hiking up Teide.

    nothing to blame, really

    the house was well situated, very stylish, outside and inside, with many big painting by an artist named Otazzo. Our room, "Tenerife", had a beautifull view, and large confortable bed, a lovely and clean bathroom, with a separated shower and a bathtub. The breakfast was copious and nice-tasting.

    Everything rather old, including sheets and towels and furniture. Bathroom was not entirely clean upon arrival. We had some ants in the room. No hairdryer. No all day reception. Breakfast limited (more like hostel). Large tables means you need to sit together with other guests.

    Beautiful old palace close to center of La Orotava. Restaurant recommendations upon arrival. Very friendly and attentive staff, especially at breakfast.

    Lovely Hotel in excellent location near lovely La Orotava town centre, but tucked away in a quiet street. Such a relaxed atmosphere. It was almost like staying at a friends house rather than a hotel, ideal for a chill out holiday. Huge comfortable bed in large bedroom with views. Cant wait to go back.

    Non-applicable; there was nothing we didn’t like. I do need to mention that the hotel and walking the steep streets of La Orotava are not handicapped accessible.

    The property is magnificent! The room was spacious; the tile bathroom with large tub and shower rivals any high end hotel! The view from the room overlooked the pool and skyline. The common rooms rivaled colonial mansions. Our breakfasts were very good. And Jorge, the owner, was prompt and very courteous.

    This is not a criticism of the hotel but some of the area around the hotel is derelict. Sadly, beautiful old mansions have been allowed to fall into disrepair - but it is perfectly safe.

    Absolutely perfect - a charming, historic hotel close to the centre of La Orotava, with generous rooms, a huge bathroom and wonderful views of El Teide. The owner is most helpful, there was a good choice at breakfast, a swimming pool and outdoor space or public areas where guests can relax and make tea or coffee after a day's sightseeing. We managed to park right outside the hotel for the entire stay!

    Parking was quite tricky - there is only space for 3 cars, so if these are full, there are very few options nearby.

    Beautiful property, in Moroccan riad style, with views out to sea. Our room was huge, and very comfortable, and the hotel was very quiet with lots of rooms to relax in and lots of art to look at. The town centre is a five minute (uphill!) walk away. Breakfast was also very tasty, served at a communal table.

    A wonderful family run hotel, exquisite building with only 5 rooms. We stayed in 'Tenerife' (rooms are named after the Islands) gorgeous sea views and the most magnificent bathroom.

    Access to the hotel on arrival was a little difficult. It is an old building without double glazing so noise from outside was sometimes an issue - there are three different church clocks and, when we were there in spring, frogs calling all evening.

    The hotel is very atmospheric and spacious. Rooms are large and well furnished; no noise from other residents at all. There is a small pool in a pleasant small garden, though too cold to swim when we were there.
