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

A lovely part of Las Palmas with it's own little bit of history, supposedly the place where Franco stayed and made his final plans prior to the start of the civil war. Beer and sandwiches were good too!

The Hotel Madrid is an institution in Las Palmas as it is supposed to have been where Franco stayed immediately prior to leaving for the mainland and the start of the civil war. It is now a well established hotel but can not comment on that as we only ever ate there or enjoyed a refreshment in the sunshine watching... More

Handsome building on attractive largely unspoilt square (rare in Las Palmas), used by locals as well as visitors, much of the authentic decor is retained. The cafe restaurant has something of a Cafe de Flore/Deux Magots atmosphere. (Perhaps a few too many repro retro posters in the dining room.) We did not stay there but enjoyed a very good goat...

What a lovely place to have a drink or brunch. Outside terrace is a bless, when the weather is nice. Drinks and snacks are ok, service friendly. Gets busy on lunch and dinner times, mainly with locals, which is a good sign.
