Hotel Casa del Embajador
Ranked #30 of 37 Hotels in Playa Blanca
Reviewed April 26, 2012

If you are looking for a nice, small hotel on Lanzarote, without all the fuzz that you associate with big hotels (animation, noise, no personal touch), this is it. Excellent location, just near the ocean, beautiful view, fresh fruit at your disposal, gentle, helpful but very discreet staff, very nice terrace, simple but good breakfast (including nespresso coffee). Mind you: no pool, no airco. But yes, wi-fi is free.

Can only agree with the other recent reviews. Stayed here for 3 nights before going on to another larger hotel. The hotel is right on the seafront with access through a door on the promenade using a keypad. Very quiet and comfortable rooms. Pleasant outdoor breakfast. At one point we were the only guests staying overnight but we felt fine with that. Its an easy walk to the town centre with many bars and restaurants. Would definitely return.

We stayed in this hotel for a week and it was thoroughly relaxing. Although it is in a central location it is very quiet. The breakfasts are good and nice to eat in the open air and the rooms are spotless. The staff quietly go about their business and their is unlimited fruit and a help yourself bar with honesty form! We will return at the earliest opportunity.

If you are looking for a relaxing retreat with excellent service, then look no further. This small hotel is the only residence designated as being in the town centre, all the larger hotels being situated on the edges of Playa Blanca. Although you are within 100 metres of the shops and restaurants that abound along the seafront, the hotel's elevated position screens any noise of the promenaders below. The private terrace offers a relaxing area overlooking the sea and the rooms are well proportioned, and kept spotless on a daily basis. Breakfast was varied and good, and the staff were friendly and efficient. Were we to return to Lanzarote, we would have no hesitation in returning to La Casa.

Really nice small hotel right in the centre of Playa Blanca. As in other reviews it is very quiet here, but if that is what you want then this is a perfect hotel. The bedrooms are samll but very comfortable and the relaxation areas are very attractive. Breakfast varied at bit from day to day, but there is no problem getting anything extra if something has run out and we really enjoyed the fresh orange juice and nespresso coffee.

No Pool, No Entertainment, No Air Conditioning - If you want these do not come to Casa del Embajador! If you want Peace, Quiet and Relaxation this is the place!
Sitting on the terrace you could hardly be nearer the sea yet once through the secret door onto the promenade you are less than a stone's throw from the town centre.

This hotel belies the rumour that every hotel in Lanzarote is for the mass tourism market. We were looking for something quiet but convenient for restaurants and a little light walking. This hotel is on the seafront with private exit on to the walk ways one way and to the town from the other. Rooms (no more than 14) and public areas pleasantly and traditionally furnished. A lovely courtyard for breakfast which is ample and is set out and topped up frequently by attentive but not intrusive staff. Plenty of quiet rocky terrace with loungers to sit out and read. It's location means you are within minutes of a selection of restaurants in the evenings and the 'promenade' means you can walk 5 miles in either direction. Booking a taxi to/from airport (max. 40 minutes) is easy and the hotel is happy to give guidelines on prices to be paid. Playa Blanca itself is a mass tourism resort but this is a little oasis...people were mystified as we disappeared from the prom through the security coded doors in the wall. Great place for R&R

Room Tip: ask for sea facing to get the best of the breezes
