I loved my stay here! HUGE glorious rooms, giant bath tubs and showers, all felt very eco friendly, warm and inviting. The staff went out of their way to help us as well, one night they helped me order a pizza to the hotel as I had been on the Night walk and had missed group dinner - the pizza... More

Stayed here for a few nights whilst on a tour, so had no choice about it. First thing to be said about it, it's a bout 1km out of town, down hill all the way to it, but up hill all the way from it. You won't do that walk very often! The wooded chalet style rooms are small and... More

My family stayed here as a part of a intrepid tour. The hotel is very rustic and it had a lot of character. The people who work there, like Louis and Alba are just fantastic! The hotel also has a very sweet dog named mucho Pucho. He was always very excited to see us and greeted us every time we... More

I stayed for 2 days at this hotel. The accommodation is very rustic and simple with wooden panelling and very basic furniture and decor. It was clean however, I did have a problem with the shower. The shower head was positioned in the centre of the length of the tub !! So even with the shower curtain fully closed, water... More

We stayed here 2 nights as part of the accommodation organised by our Intrepid group tour. Location wise, it is about 15 minutes walk to the town centre. We were fortunate to have been given a room on the first floor with a view and a little balcony area outside. We did not have much to do with the management... More

We absolutely had a great stay, thanks to Louis (the owner). From the beginning until the end the best service possible was provided. Because of the excellent recommandations and advice we were able to get the most out of our stay in Monte Verde. The rooms were big and comfy, there was warm water and we enjoyed the breakfast.

Quiet, gorgeous hotel, friendly staff. I opened my door to see a massive bed which was VERY comfy and a gorgeous room. Close enough to town to walk and lots of restaurants just around the corner. A great bakery about 100m away for a cup of tea in the morning if you want to go for a stroll around. Beautiful... More
