Hotel Escuela Santa Cruz
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Arrived with 3 colleagues in the early evening to be told - very casually - that I was sharing a room with one of them. I made it clear that this was unacceptable. They said the hotel was full. The staff then brought a manager who said I could have another room. Laughably, this was a room allocated to another of my colleagues. Finally I told them to cancel all 4 rooms and we would find another hotel. They made some more calls and, magically, a spare room appeared. The hotel is old, needs a refurb, air con was ineffective, IT systems lousy! I won't be back

Stayed: April 2013, traveled on business

We bought the deal cause the price compared to the number of stars was so catching. But in reality - rooms with the old furniture, dirty windows, not nice smell (maybe occupied before by a smoker), gray sheets, not comfortable beds (not double as we ordered but twin). Location seemed to be OK, but it was not matter to us as we had a car. For breakfast there was a lot of different meal, but somehow I did not find anything for myself, they did not have any hot breakfast.

Hotel Escuela is a good choice if you want to hit the town of Santa Cruz after a long hike in the mountains of Tenerife. Breakfast is superb and rooms (although soon will need to be refurnished) are spacious and comfortable.

Enjoyed another overnight stay in Santa Cruz at the ideally (for us) situated Hotel Escuela. Underground parking a bonus in a city hotel. We only had B&B this time as wanted to explore more of Santa Cruz's restaurants.
The staff as usual were excellent and very helpful. The room was a bit dated but was comfortable and our request for a sea view was granted.
Breakfast was fabulous this time with chef preparing all sorts of tortilla in the actual dining room. My husband also enjoyed the chocolate fountain with fresh fruit.
The hotel is about 5mins walk outside the centre of Santa Cruz.
This is the fifth time we have stayed at Hotel Escuela and we will be back,

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view.

We stayed for just one night and didn't use the restaurant or take breakfast but the hotel was perfect for what we needed. The underground parking is free of charge and we were given a really quiet room on the ground floor overlooking a cactus garden.

The room itself felt a little dated but was very comfortable but the bathroom was great with a huge shower cubicle which included the bath and independent shower- such a great idea I might have to build one at home!!!!

Reception staff were not the friendliest or chattiest but when staying for just one night this was neither here or there. Would recommend and would definitely use again.

This hotel trains personnel keen to be in the hotel trade. As a result the attention given the guests and cleaning is excellent. As said by others, the catering is excellent.
The massive football stadium is right across the road towering above you but there are no balconies or views to see anything anyway. The road is one-way, down hill and into the centre.
The area is not touristy but interesting because of that, with several bars, cafes and restaurants catering to local customers. We'd definitely return, providing our ability to walk uphill remains sound!
