The hotel is exquisitely furnished and immaculately clean. We had a room in the 300 year old part with a beautiful wooden ceiling, a... More

This is a well established hotel which has been tastefully refurbished. With only 8 rooms, the experienced owners Bernard and Richard, are able to lavish personal attention, particularly at breakfast where excellent coffee is produced to order. They are multilingual, personable and very knowledgeable - particularly with respect to local restaurants. The bedroom and public areas are quiet, thoughtfully designed... More

Bernard and Richard were very hospitable hosts for our 3 nights in Santa Cruz de La Palma. The small hotel is located in an older section of the city, with easy walking to sights and restaurants.

Hotel – La Palma Perfect location for the capitals restaurants, bars and shopping! It’s about 10 mins max to the very furthest end of the main road but the slopes are steep if you are unfit, lots of steps and cobbled streets.

I wanted to do some hiking on the island of La Palma and used the Hotel San Telmo as my base for 10 nights.

We stayed for a week and enjoyed the time there (an on the island) a lot!! We had a room in the ground floor which was nicely lit by the morning sun!
