Our travel agents booked this for us, and my initial reaction was that it was small and a bit shabby compared to the newer Hotel Serrano which is right in front of it. Several other lodges are also in this area. I imagine that the view from this Hosteria must have been incredible before the Hotel was built, but this now blocks some of the view. It's still beautiful from the windows. I hope that there won't be any more buildings blocking the view.
We were given room 21 which is the largest one on the top floor. We had views in 3 directions. The room was large, clean and comfortable; the bathroom was small but adequate and there was hot water. The heat and light was limited to save energy, but it did not matter very much in the summer because it was light until almost ten at night anyway.
The dining/reception area was small and warm. There was one sofa, which was occupied, but we sat at the tables. If you want to sit in a large, modern lounge with a slightly better view of the mountains, it is easy to just walk across the street to the big hotel.
The staff spoke limited English but it was better than our Spanish, and we managed to communicate. We enjoyed the food, including the box lunches they made for us. The women were friendly. We were supposed to go on a kayak but it was cancelled due to the wind, so we came back and started eating our lunch on the table, and the receptionist brought us napkins and plates for our box lunch.
By the time we left two days later we had become fond of the staff and our old-fashioned room. And our view was totally better than any of the back rooms of the larger hotel!
