“Good hotel, but far from town and would be better in winter”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2011

This was a nice hotel with large rooms and a little kitchen, which would be great for people wanting an apartment-style alternative to a typical hotel room. Everything was very clean and modern, and the common areas were great.

It was very noisy, particularly since an unexpected and very unusual heat wave (and no air con) forced us to leave the window open, and since the room faced onto a VERY busy street (ALL NIGHT), it sounded a bit like the runway at Heathrow Airport. I'm sure this would not be a problem in cooler weather with the windows closed or in a back room.

The place itself is about a 20 minute walk into town (downhill) - pretty far considering how many hotels are located right downtown. Coming back, 2 out of the 3 taxis we took went in completely the wrong direction, even after we showed them where the place was on a map. They had to stop and ask for directions. It seems this is a pretty out-of-the way place, and what should have been a 5-minute ride ended up taking over 25 minutes -- twice.

Our biggest concern was that this place was not quite a hotel, but not quite a B&B. I think we were the only people there at night (no concierge and no live-in keeper) and even though the area is quite safe and there were several gates/locks, I felt that two tourists alone in a big place are a bit of a target.

All in all, nice place but probably better in the "high" season in winter when more people are around.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2010

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The room is cosy and very well equipped. There is a microwave and Wifi (if you bring your laptop). The Hotel it self has no computer for guests to use. The breakfast is varied and served with home made bread. The service is friendly (but mostly in spanish).
If you are looking for a comfortable stay in a beautiful place and you have a car or don't mind climbing the hill for 30 minutes each time you go to the center, this place is highly recommended.
It is very important to inform the hotel about the time of your arrivel, because When We arrived to the hotel it was 9pm, the door was locked, there was no receptionist, guests that were comming out opened the door and called the ouner on the telefone, we could have been outside all night.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2010

We stayed 3 nights, didn't want to leave. Beautiful, open concept design; the common area is like an atrium, and the very new building is surrounded by trees. Our room was elegant and large, extremely comfortable. Each room is named for one of the local flowers or trees, and the staff seem like keen naturalists. The best breakfast we've encountered yet, with cereals, fruit, yogurt, home-made breads, delicious coffee...sigh. Service was outstanding. Ernesto was quick responding to email requests.

Only con: it's right on a busy road, though it seems most hosterias in town are as well. Earplugs are a good idea. Would love to return.
