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

Booked for a week, having read others' reviews. The Alhambra lives up to all the previous comments and is a charming place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and beautiful, with some delightful extras.
