“Terrible "Hotel"”
Reviewed April 12, 2011

this is about the worst hotel I ever stayed in, I moved out after a short few days to check into another acceptalble hotel...despite having paid in advance .. the rooms are smelly old and stinking of desinfectant ... the lady owning the place is very unpolite and nosy .....breakfast is bad... well its just not even worse the 1 star that is has on the door...the beds are smelly very very old..danger of catching an invectious desease.. not joking... STAY AWAY of this .. rather recommending any youth hostal...

We choose this hotel because it was quite cheap and we were not disappointed at all. It has only 22 rooms and it's very quiet, though neighbours are not sometimes. Mainly elderly people are staying in this hotel but that's not a problem at all.
The only minus is that you can only have brekfast (not much of a choice: fresh bread, marmelade, coffe, cocoa, tea, juice, milk, cornflakes - or something else if you bring it with you, otherwise you have to stick with those) and there is no dinner (the onwner gives you a coupon for another hotel and you have dinner there (it was in casa del sol and it was not so bad)). And it's good if you speak german or spanish, cause the owner doesn't speak other languages pretty well (but I think she understands, though she always responds in german or spanish).
The hotel also has a swimming pool which is empty most of the time (water is a bit cold). In front of the hotel is a lot of space where you can park if you hire a car. There is also a place for children to play (a few swings and a lot of sand to make sand castles).
Rooms are big enough with own bathrooms. They are cleaned every day (also the towels are changed) and it's really tidy. We were lucky to have a room with a kitchen and a balcony (not all rooms have it). So we had an excellent view on Teide. In the room there is also TV and a safe, but you have to pay a bit extra for those.
Everybody has allowance to go to the rooftop. There are a few chairs so you can enjoy the view.
I really recommend it. I know for myself that if I ever go to Teneriffe again I'll be in this hotel for sure.
