Rooms and location OK for the price, shame that the staff is somewhat unwelcoming and indifferent. We would think twice about coming back here. Other places in the region were much more friendly and interested in their clients.

Stayed here one night whilst walking on the island. It is the only place to stay in these high hills. In bad weather the place looked a bit bleak and the hotel is no frills, ?aimed at walkers. Rooms were adequate with a useful heater. Our shower leaked everywhere. The bar area is frequented by locals. Tables are cafe style,... More

A must stop for multiday hikers in La Gomera, as it's the only hotel close to the National Park. It is excellent, good meals (worth it also if you only stop for lunch) and OK breakfast. Sunset from the balcony. Note however that this part of the NP has burned in 2012. There is a Internet terminal. TV is in... More

We were booked into the bar hotel sonia for 2 nights by our tour company - we are on a walking tour holiday of la Gomera. Chipude is a quiet place at 1200m. Bar Sonia is in the main village square so you are near to a supermarket, chemist and another bar. We were very pleased with our room. The... More
