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.

Opulent palazzo, apparently that of a merchant prince hundreds of years ago, with 4-6 rooms (several are combinable), within centro historico's mansion district. The atrium is sensational and there are twice as many common areas, tastefully appointed to a fare-the-well, than

Hotel Alhambra, sounds class IS top class. Comfortable accommodation in relaxed surroundings. Great location in quiet backstreet very near town centre. Large double bedroom with lovely views of sea and mountains. More like staying with friends than a hotel.

The colonial mansion is beautiful! We stayed a week and toured the island from here. There are numerous restaurant options within walking distance. The rooms are clean and spacious. Jorge is a very accommodating host.

We stayed for 3 nights in late September. Our primary reason for choosing this hotel/town was its proximity to El Teide mountain which is about an hour drive from town. Our room was on the main floor overlooking the pool. It was comfortable and had a nice bathroom. It was still

Response from alhambravilla, Propietario at Hotel Alhambra
Responded 17 Oct 2017
Dear EmilyD17: Thank you for your review. We’ll work on the aspects you found negative about your stay. Regarding mosquitoes, they can only be found here during 2 different weeks throughout the year. We have electric insecticides for mosquitos in all the rooms (kept inside the wardrobe, so that you can use them if case of need). As for parking, in the space we have reserved, there is actually place for parking 4 cars. Our year average occupancy is 4 rooms. Normally there is no problem in finding other places along the street outside the hotel for parking at night. However, by the time you stayed at Hotel Alhambra, there were some events in town. That’s why it was complicated for you to park. Finally, in relation to the painting tour, we are already working in an English and other languages written version of it, so that every guest can read and understand it.
