Hotelito Ida Inés

The Canary IslandsEl Hierro › Frontera

This small, family-run hotel is well situated for travellers wishing to explore the island and is known locally for its excellent home cooking

Situated at Frontera, close to the centre of El Hierro, the Hotelito Ida Ines is ideal for those seeking a friendly and unpretentious base from which to explore the whole of the island. From its elevated setting just below Frontera's distinctive hilltop church, Virgen de la Candelaria, this cosy hotel enjoys expansive views across the wide valley of El Golfo up to the mountains and down to the sea. The north coast is approximately 4 km away, and whilst El Hierro is not primarily known for its beaches, there are a number of small coves and rock pools where sea swimming is possible in calm weather. Together with the almost joint-up village of Tigaday, Frontera is the island's main population centre after the little capital Valverde, so there is a decent range of facilities within a two-kilometre radius, including several restaurants and cafés, shops for your day-to-day needs, a bank and a petrol station.

The hotel itself comprises just 12 guestrooms, which are simply but prettily furnished. All have en-suite bath or shower rooms, TV sets (local channels only), and tea and coffee making facilities, a rather unusual bonus in these parts and one which the proprietor discovered - and decided to implement in his own hotel - during a recent visit to the UK! The majority of rooms also have a balcony or a small terrace. In addition, there is a communal roof terrace with panoramic views in all directions.

On the ground floor, the small reception area leads through to the restaurant. Here, a continental breakfast sets you up for the day, whilst in the evenings home-cooked meals allow you to refuel after a day spent walking or exploring the island.
