Was recommended to go here for lunch from our hotel! We enjoyed a lovely, reasonably priced 3 course lunch outside in the piazza. Customer service was excellent, and we were made to feel very welcome indeed. This hotel is steeped in history, and is relatively 'untouched' by the progress of time. We will be back!

Enjoyed a "Menu del Dia" on an outside table overlooking a lovely Plaza. Whilst the food is only reasonable and the service "brisk" it is not to be missed with its history - the interior is the same as when Franco stayed. Recommend

We only visit restaurant for lunch. Menu del dia for price of 12 euro. Just ordinary food, but most important is the historic interiors. Oldest hotel at Gran Canary. Take a drink in the bar or sit in the small dining room and feel the atmosphere. General Franco had his last night here at room nr 3 before he started... More

Don't miss out on this gem of a hotel. The food is very reasonable and the drinks are great. The staff are a joy and the place is very popular with all sorts of local people. This is a serious boozer. Make it part of your itinerary like Franco did but please, unlike him, pay your ( very reasonable) bill.

Whether you like this hotel will, of course, depend on what you want. We wanted a 'real' Spanish hotel and found a great example here. Booking – the hotel is not on any of the usual sites can be booked by email with the aid of Google translate as required. Arrival – the airport bus stops at San Telmo bus... More

We did not stay but ate & drank outside on a number of occasions (& this was early February), it's just a nice place to relax have a drink or a meal at a reasonable price , it's all basic but what is wrong with that ?

We made a late booking in mid-Jan and stayed for a week at 50euros a night (without breakfast) for a double room with a balcony overlooking a lovely square. I suppose it could do with a bit of refurbishment, but in a way that would detract from its charm. It's a traditional building with Spanish/Moorish features - the type of... More

We booked in for two nights in Novenber and stayed for seven. The hotel is not a formulaic chain type place, it is unique and charming with very helpful staf and management. Whilst the rooms are basic the housekeepers take pride in maintaining high standards. The hotel is in a great location for visiting the old town and the bus... More

This hotel is cheap and here you get what you pay for. It's an old building with no elevators. It's faded but has its own charm. Franco left from here to the civil war in 36 and I suspect if he returned now he would see few changes. The accommodation is basic and clean. The hotel is on a plaza... More

We were there for lunch only. Sat near the bar where an incredibly charming man was working making coffees and drinks singing and whistling his favourite tunes. The bolognese we ordered was not up to standard, and after he realised that due to half empty plates, the replacement meals were ordered. He chatted us up and offered his "cortado special"... More
