My sister and I with three teens stayed here during peak Christmas season 2014 and was very happy with the accommodation that Mr Vitalis (owner) has given to us. It was a basic clean room with hot shower . The view was fantastic from our room . Quiet and and safe. Breakfast was okay. The hotel is 10 minutes taxi... More

A beautiful, quiet hotel. Vitalis, the owner, is a charming man and extremely welcoming. The garden is amazing, and as the name promises a wonderful view of the sunset. We will be back for a longer stay!

We visited this hotel in January 2015. The hotel has great views and the breakfast area is very cozy again with great views. The rooms are decent. The washrooms need some renovations. Especially the sink didnt have hot water which wasnt too much of an inconvenience but could be improved upon. The shower had hot water only. Overall i would... More

We stayed at the Sunset Hotel four nights in December and we had a great experience. The hotel was very well-indicated and easy to find. It is not near all the other hotels and restaurants but very close to the selvatura park (where all tourist attractions are). The host (Vitalis) was very welcoming, availble and eager to help us with... More

We stayed at the Sunset Hotel for 2 nights in December - the guy running it was really friendly, and had lots of local knowledge, he has lived there for over 50 years! He even let us buy a few beers from his personal stash at supermarket price. Yes the rooms are basic but it's still nice and the sunsets... More

Small family operated hotel that's obviously been around for some time. Room was clean and adequate although furnishings and decor were dark and dated. No air conditioning but none was needed. Owner Vitalis went to the trouble of ordering food and having it delivered by taxi after a later than expected arrival. He also prepared a pretty good breakfast and... More

We stayed here for a couple of days while passing through Monte Verde. The owner and his son were very friendly and assisted us with booking some tours and picking out restaurants. The views here are incredible; from just outside your door! The place is dated but it is clean The owner cooks breakfast in the morning. Eggs, toast and... More

We had requested a clean, secure but modest hotel but this might have been secure but it wasn't clean. Very run down hotel and has no TV, no air condition or fan. The curtains are see through. You can hear people snoring in other rooms Bugs were on the bed. I did not sleep for the two long nights that... More

The hotel, owned by an elderly German gentleman, is small and suited our needs. Located up on the hill, it has a wonderful view (amazing sunset). Rooms are basic - bed, bathroom, hangers to hang some stuff and towels. No TV, internet ready. Fresh coffee and delicious fruits and eggs for breakfast in the morning. Hotel is a very steep... More
