A beautiful place to unwind and relax. Attentive and passionate service in tranquil surroundings. Fantastic views of Teide and the coast. Great central location in the heart of the old town Our 2nd visit and we will definately be back.

In a quiet street away from the most of the old town, this is a beautiful 18th century house converted into a welcoming small hotel. The house has been lovingly restored; the decor is fascinating, though the modern paintings of a painter with local roots won't be to everyone's taste. Our room was a delight with views over the coast... More

we arrived at this hotel after booking out of another hotel in the area as sadly it had not lived up to it's name. The owner was most helpful and offered us the choice of two rooms. Both of which were beyond our expectation's. This family run hotel has all you need for a relaxing break with beautiful rooms, comfortable... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in October 2012. The building has an amazing atmosphere and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast buffet was very good. We particularly enjoyed all the rooms and spaces to sit when the weather was bad. We have recommended this hotel to our friends and family, and are hoping to visit again soon.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Alhambra, in La Orotava, in early March, 2013. This hotel was originally a private residence that was converted into a beautiful small hotel, with large rooms, enormous bathrooms, and charming public spaces on the ground and first floors, all beautifully furnished and immaculate. The breakfasts were copious, with a good selection of... More

The Alhambra hotel is one of the loveliest and most unusual we have ever stayed in; it is perfectly named as the interior of the old palace resembles the Alhambra in Grenada and is full of interesting works of art-a totally different world from the vast package tour hotels and apartments of the South and nearby Puerto de la Cruz....

After spending 4 days in Costa Adeje on our first visit to Tenerife, we arrived at the beautiful Hotel Alhambra to make a contrast with the all inclusive hotel we had previously stayed in. From the moment we arrived we knew we had chosen well. We arrived in La Orotava on the afternoon of the main procession of the Carnival.... More

We stayed in Alhambra during a last minute weekend in Nov. The hotel is an elegant country house with amazing artwork wherever you turn. We stayed in the La Palma room which was spacious with a view of the ocean and mountains. The mosaic bathroom is huge with both bath and shower! The lovely sound of church bells was the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Alhambra is located in the centre of the North of Tenerife, being in a strategic area in order to visit the whole island. The Eclectic style-like current appearance of the building of Hotel Alhambra is due to two consecutive refurbishments, projected by Mariano Estanga, for the Ascanio family, which were accomplished in 1925. He chose elements of classicist origin, as the curve pediments or the balcony balaustrades. He proposed the recreation of a "nazari" (Muslim) courtyard in the inside, by means of horseshoe arches, tiling zocles and ornamentation made with plaster. Hotel Alhambra has 5 bed-rooms: 3 double bed-rooms and 2 double superior bed-rooms, all of them with large beds. Every room has an exclusive bathroom, television set, telephone, safe and mini-bar. The atmosphere of the hotel is very comfortable and inviting, offering a personalised service, providing an alternative to the clients who run away from hustle and bustle. There are different types of communal rooms: living rooms, reading rooms and exhibition rooms with paintings and frescos of the Maestro Antonio Otazzo, among others. It also has a reserved area for parking outside. In the surrounding of Hotel Alhambra you will find an excellent gastronomic selection of restaurants, where you can taste the pleasure of the typical Canary cuisine and many of its local wines. ... more   less
