Spent a week at Hotel Alhambra a perfect base for exploring northern Tenerife. In September It was quiet (Nov-March is peak). The hotel is African influenced in style and a real treat. Very comfortable bed, large bathroom with bath and separate shower. It has several quiet lounges and a shade terrace next to a small pool. On arrival the Director...

Large bathroom, good shower, all very clean. Central location and walking distance to Orotava. The hotel is lovely & quiet but does have a local church close...

We stayed in this hotel in February this year. It had a lovely atmosphere and we were made to feel very welcome by the staff. The decor is quirky but lovely and our bathroom was definitely one of the most attractive and luxurious I have encountered, the huge bath just the thing as the weather was not too kind! The...

Hotel Alhambra is simply a unique gem in Orotava. This is definitely a different place than the usual resort. An enchanting boutique hotel with history and art, greatly run by Jordi and his team. The room (Palma) was large with a very comfortable bathroom and with view on the Teide and the sea. The hotel has a small swimming pool...

We spent a week at Hotel Alhambra and loved it. The hotel had arranged our taxi transfer from the airport as we brought a bicycle with us and needed extra space. We were greeted at the hotel with a warm welcome and explanation of the facilities, breakfast times, local street map with restaurants and places of interest marked on it....

Very nice ,welcoming and quiet. Lovely views. Proficient and adept owners- they asked the day before departure if we'd like early breakfast ( yes we did need this and it was no problem). Responded promptly to an email the week of arrival asking how we'd get in if our flight was delayed. Wonderful bathroom- with a bath! Hotel displaying many...

We have just come back from a five night stay at this hotel, and it was a real joy. The manager Jordi is really helpful and informative, the breakfast were lovely and the rooms really comfortable.

We stayed for a week in this wonderful small 5 bedroomed hotel. It is situated in the lovely old town of La Oratava well away from the touristy areas on the coast, but in an excellent spot for seeing the north Coast, particularly Masca and the lovely Anaga Mountains. The host and his family were really charming and welcomed us...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Alhambra is located in the centre of the North of Tenerife, being in a strategic area in order to visit the whole island. The Eclectic style-like current appearance of the building of Hotel Alhambra is due to two consecutive refurbishments, projected by Mariano Estanga, for the Ascanio family, which were accomplished in 1925. He chose elements of classicist origin, as the curve pediments or the balcony balaustrades. He proposed the recreation of a "nazari" (Muslim) courtyard in the inside, by means of horseshoe arches, tiling zocles and ornamentation made with plaster. Hotel Alhambra has 5 bed-rooms: 3 double bed-rooms and 2 double superior bed-rooms, all of them with large beds. Every room has an exclusive bathroom, television set, telephone, safe and mini-bar. The atmosphere of the hotel is very comfortable and inviting, offering a personalised service, providing an alternative to the clients who run away from hustle and bustle. There are different types of communal rooms: living rooms, reading rooms and exhibition rooms with paintings and frescos of the Maestro Antonio Otazzo, among others. It also has a reserved area for parking outside. In the surrounding of Hotel Alhambra you will find an excellent gastronomic selection of restaurants, where you can taste the pleasure of the typical Canary cuisine and many of its local wines. ... more   less
