We stayed for 2 nights on 14th and 15th March. This is a really great old hotel, bags of character, but everything works. Ours was the Fuerteventura room, bright and sunny, with a great bathroom. The breakfasts were superb.

We stayed 3 nights from the 7 th February 2017 in the La Palma room which I believe is probably the best one. It costs a little extra for this superior room but it has a superb position at the rear of the property and away from the road. Large double windows face south with views of Mt Teide and...

Went here last Tuesday, intending to stay eight nights, but came home after five. The weather was cold with intermittant sun. Although the hotel was beautiful, there was not enough heating to make it comfortable at this time of year. The owner was very kind when we decided to leave early, and only charged for the five nights. Great hotel...

An interesting old house with some beautiful original features like oak panelling, fresco ceilings and intricate plasterwork throughout. There are lots of lovely sitting areas, a TV room, music centre, tea & coffee to make whenever you want it, mini bars in the bedrooms and a sauna room, in fact, everything you need. Continental breakfast is self-service in two dining...

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...

We stayed for four nights in La Palma room. Lovely views of Teide & the coast from this room, bright & airy. 2 Single Beds in the room reasonably comfortable but not great.

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...

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
