Expert review of Hotel Escuela

The perfect city centre base for foodies, shoppers and football fans.

This Canary Islands government-owned teaching hotel has a reputation for fine cuisine and good value for money. It is perfectly located for anyone wanting to watch the local Tenerife football team play at home, go to a theatre performance at the Tenerife Auditorio or enjoy the capital’s shopping and nightlife.

Location: 

in the city centre, opposite the CD Tenerife football stadium, in walking distance of the Tenerife Auditorio, El Corte Inglés store, museums, TEA art gallery, the African market and trendy Noria district.

Bedrooms: 

Bedrooms are a good size for a city centre hotel, and have a contemporary, minimalist design in predominantly cream decor with aubergine or chocolate fabrics and furnishings. There are flat-screen TVs and Internet connection. Effective double glazing makes for silent nights but summer can be stifling.

Public areas: 

Cutting edge design throughout means it feels like you’re staying in an art gallery. Rooms are off an open wooden walkway which runs around a narrow inner courtyard lined with elegant palm trees – a contemporary take on a traditional Canarian design. Furnishings include painting and sculptures by local artists.

Eating and drinking: 

The Tajinaste in-house restaurant is a teaching environment which hosts top chefs from around the world to guest train its international students. Creative menus feature contemporary twists on traditional cuisine and result in first-class fine dining at affordable prices. Possibly the best hotel selection of local wines on the island.

Leisure facilities: 

The hotel has a swimming pool and a small gymnasium and rooftop terraces with views over the city.

Service: 

As this is a teaching hotel, staff are predominantly young trainees and are eager to please. Constant supervision and assessment ensure standards are maintained.
