Good location ( actually the only one) in Chipude. But after a day of hiking, one's happy for a bed and a hot shower. No frills, no luxury - just the basics. But the place is clean and the restaurant downstairs serves good homemade, Gomeran food.

We stayed here for just one night. Started well - The beer choice was good including some nice German bottled beers and the evening meal was tasty hearty home cooking. During our stay in early March the weather was particularly cold and windy, which highlighted the poor fitting sliding door in our room to the terrace. Even with the plug-in... More

Stayed here once more. We were walking through the Island, as were most of the other guests. Sonia gives you a warm welcome. Rooms are basic and need a bit of heat in winter. We were lucky to have a sunny evening and able to sit out and enjoy beers and snacks. The evening meal was again good value. The... More

The bar serves bad tasting torrefacto coffee for 1 euro. If you prefer arabica type of coffee I advise to move on to Bar Victoria in El Cercado where the coffee is excellent (Mocay). I have no experience with other drinks or food in this bar; this rating is valid for the coffee only.

After a wonderful hike up to Mount Fortaletza, did we enjoy Bar Sonias lovely food and drink outside in the shade. A tasty stew with chicken, fresh bread and cold beer. Quick service and friendly staff. After the food we relaxed with a cup of strong coffee and then we were ready to catch the bus down to Valle Gran... More

Rooms and location OK for the price, shame that the staff is somewhat unwelcoming and indifferent. We would think twice about coming back here. Other places in the region were much more friendly and interested in their clients.

Stayed here one night whilst walking on the island. It is the only place to stay in these high hills. In bad weather the place looked a bit bleak and the hotel is no frills, ?aimed at walkers. Rooms were adequate with a useful heater. Our shower leaked everywhere. The bar area is frequented by locals. Tables are cafe style,... More

A must stop for multiday hikers in La Gomera, as it's the only hotel close to the National Park. It is excellent, good meals (worth it also if you only stop for lunch) and OK breakfast. Sunset from the balcony. Note however that this part of the NP has burned in 2012. There is a Internet terminal. TV is in... More

The bar is friendly, with locals in eating, drinking (not much) and watching footie on the telly. The food is simple, home made, well cooked and presented and very tasty. The hotel part is definitely no frills but perfectly adequate. Breakfast gets stars for freshly squeezed orange juice and proper coffee, which are not easy to come by in most... More
