We agree that the hôtel has a very nice patio decorated with a lot of flowers and ferns (helechos).
Some rooms are nice but we stayed during a week in STUDIO N° 1.
This studio is on the basement and the 2 tiny Windows ( so tiny that you need light during day time) are in front of the street so that you can't open it . During the night it's too hot without a (lacking) fan.
The room has a wardrobe 2 wooden chairs and a little round table. A closet should be very useful to put your food.
The kitchen lacks of very usefull Tools : no kettle, no teapot, no cutting board, no toaster... We asked for a saucepan !
Nailed to the door is a long list of what you don't have to do to be a "good" guest. One of them is to not put any paper in the WC !!!!
No room cleaning.
No TV in the room but a big TV in a living room with only GERMAN and SPANISH channels.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome in the "House of ferns"The traditional family house, “House of Ferns“ lies in Agulo, in the north of the Canary Island of Gomera. The name takes its origin from the patio which is traditional in the old cultural houses and is, as a matter of fact surrounded by ferns.A wonderful oasis of tranquility and relaxationIn the various individual appartments (incl. kitchen and shower room) which have been renovated in the traditional style, you can enjoy a little escapism from the touristic hussle bussle.The tranqiulity, the ambiente and the excellent service, guarantee a perfect base for your holiday activities. From the roof terrace (with sun-loungers) and some appartments there are overwhelming views of the sea and the neighbouring island of Tenerife with the highest mountain in Spain, “Teide”.The village of Agulo with its unusual location on the cliffs of the sea is known as ´The Pearl of Gomera`.It provides a perfect basecamp for hiking and excursions. Many of the most beautiful hiking routes begin either from Agulo or the neighbouring village of Hermigua. The national Park Garajonay is a 30-minute drive away. We look forward to spoiling you!!The house is under German managment with fluent English speakers. ... more less
