Pension Silene Orotava
Ranked #2 of 6 La Orotava B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 May 2016

Where do we start. Antonio and Theresia are renovating this characterful 1920's building in a classical local style on a typical cobbled street in the historical centre (Centro Storico) of La Oratava. They currently have four rooms, there will be more - we stayed in room 103 which has a terrace with a panoramic view. From the start we felt that Antonio and his wife were professional, welcoming and warm. It's a living and breathing place, full of charm in a formal structural style with a rustic and yet informal feel. Highly recommend staying with them both and enjoy La Orotava...

Hard to know what to say about this one. It's in a good central location, and very reasonaby priced. Shower was very hot, room not over large, but there was a table and chairs on the large terrace/balcony. Breakfast was served on the lowest floor from 8:30am which was a bit late for us, especially when there was a plane to catch. Not a buffet but a plate of assorted meat and cheese brought to the table, with fresh bread and jam. Orotava is a good location to visit Loro Parque and not far from the airport, although it does get the cloud that settles on the north coast. We struggled to find somewhere to eat on the first day, but came across an interesting restaurant the next day.

We loved staying at this nice old pension for few days. Don't expect everything perfect, it is an old building and the bathrom is really tiny, but the bed is comfortable, the breakfas is fresh and tasty, and the terrace with the ocean view is really nice. Antonio is very kind and accommodating. Most of the time we found a parking space right in front of the pension. There are nice places to eat just a few minute walk away. The location is perfect, you get to the beach or the botanic garden (recommended) in Puerto de la Cruz in 10min max. An thre are many sites worth seeing close by. If you like walking we recommend La Rambla del Castro...

Room Tip: We staye in room 102 and liked it.

Fabulous Pension! great value for money too! Our room 103, was beautiful, with an amazing terrace looking over the rooftops and to the sea, just stunning and we very much enjoyed drinking a glass of wine on this terrace. The wine was a gift from the owner, an anniversary present. There is a mix of modern and new within the room, the shower was fabulous! Breakfast was delicious, a mix of hams and local cheeses, just perfect! Great location, found a free parking space easily, and walked everywhere. Antonio, the owner, was very helpful and happy to discuss the local restaurants and tapas bars. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: try and book 103, for the amazing terrace and views

Delighted to read other reviews of this lovely pension. We have stayed here twice (the first time in February 2008) - and, yes, we too had Room 103! The owner keeps in touch with his clients by sending good wishes by e-mail at Christmas.

We enjoyed the elegance of the building and the eccentricity of the arrangements (breakfast is prepared very slowly, but it's worth the wait and gives one time to chat to other guests.)

One tip:DO pack plenty of warm clothing if you are here in winter! La Orotava gets very cold.

Small and far away from those big hotel resorts that you find all over the island. The owner Antonio is a very kind person and really try to make your stay nice. Very good breakfast with different kinds of bread and also nice cheeses. Not the square ones that you usually find.
Room nice but a little chilly at this time.
Silene is situated in the heart of Orotava, a nice little town.
This is a little pearl -:)

My boyfriend and I stayed one night in this beautiful well-kept house in the historic centre of Orotava. Three of the four rooms have huge balconies, overlooking the old town. We stayed in room 103, which some people have recommended. The room is lovely, but it might be a little bit too hot in the mezzanine during the night. The breakfast is delicious.
