Pros: Rooms were comfortables, very clean, had a terrace to a nice view of the village. The hotel is sufficiently outside the village to be quiet, yet it takes 5 minutes on foot to get to the village. It is easy to find and has a good, very cheap restaurant. Overall, it is an amazing bargain for money. I later stayed one night at a nearby hotel (sierra luz in cortegana) which was double the price but was not as nice. It made me appreciate this hotel much more.
Cons: As often happens in these types of hotels, there is no dedicated person to run the reception; those working at the restaurant do so in turns. They come immediately when you need them, and are very helpful, but they are clearly not trained to guide a visitor to the region: they are there to let you in, solve your problems (if you have problems) but nothing else.
