While Tenerife may be known as a holiday island, Santa Cruz, the capital of the Canary Islands, is not the destination that people come to for their holidays. There are hundreds of holiday hotels in the south of the island, and on the north coast around Puerto de la Cruz, but Santa Cruz is the business and administrative centre, and the hotels there tend to reflect that environment.
The NH Tenerife conforms to that stereotype, but if one is staying in Santa Cruz, it offers clean, comfortable, spacious rooms with a good bathroom, in a modern building. The reception staff are helpful but have limited linguistic skills — English practice is needed. The usual NH buffet breakfast is offered, but although it is a good selection it is a bit pricey, unless you are there on a weekend. A good alternative for a relaxed Italian breakfast is the nearby cafe “Contigo”, a mere 50 metres away, which also has great true Italian-style pizzas at lunch and dinner.
NH Hotels is a solid, reliable Spanish-based chain of mostly 4-star hotels, with some 5-star properties. The NH Tenerife upholds the brand’s standards well.More
