A lovely hotel, beautiful looking with lovely gardens and a nice pool.
For travellers heading here, as previous reviews have said there's not a great deal locally but it's not a bad thing if you are after some peace. The "Las Palmas" town is only a €5 taxi away and the same for Old Town (Vegueta). In the Las Palmas area along the beach there are plenty of restaurants to choose from and a decent beach.
From the airport to the city by bus is around €3 each way and bus is available from Las Palmas to Maspalomas for €12 euro return. Local taxis are reasonably priced also. It was quite cloudy while we were there, apparently a regular occurrence for Las Palmas, so the bus to Maspalpmas was great for a day of blue skies.
Good restaurants around the hotel include one located at the end of the hotel driveway, one a 3 minute walk away called "Calabria" (lovely pizzas!) and one down on the port (straight ahead from the hotel under the tunnel, called Puerto Grill.
The staff were friendly, and the cocktails and piano was a lovely relaxing treat in the evening. 4.5 stars.
The room was very clean and presentable the beds was a little hard and at times a little awkward at night with the dry air even with air conditioning off To sleep comfortable.
the staff was ok but nit very friendly there was a few individuals that was very helpful but again not all.
Using the hotel for a business trip, all the staff were pleasant and helpful but the hotel itself is in need of a little TLC. The lifts were slow and juddering not lining up with many of the floors, on one occasion the doors opened between floors while a number of us were in the lift, luckily the close doors button allowed us to get off at the next floor. I used the stairs after that! The rooms were good but the white towels weren't the best feature being a grey colour from too many washes..
We spent two weeks in Las palmas at the NH. The room was very spacious and even had its own balcony which was a pleasant surprise.
Bathroom was new, clean and large. The staff were all very nice and helpful.
The only slight issue was we booked a double bed and only got two singles pushed together.
We would definitely go back.
Excellent if on a budget. Rooms are clean, secure and adequate for those who don't spend their day in the room. Rooftop pool and sundeck for those who seek somewhere quieter than the beach. Turn left out of the hotel and you are a minute from the beach. A wealth of bars and restaurants along the seafront. Turn right and the main street (Calle Thomas Miller) will lead you in the direction of many other bars, restaurants and plazas on either side. Prices probably were cheaper here than in the South of the island, as more locals than tourists in the area at the time of visiting (late June).
Pocket Guide: Gran Canaria Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Hotels
Cosmopolitan Las Palmas is the biggest city in the Canaries with a life aside from tourism. It features an historic district with superb Colonial architecture, a major shopping area, the golden sands of Playa de las Canteras, and one of the largest ports in Spain. The covered Market and the Museo Canario should not be missed. The bars and restaurants along the front are frequented by visitors and locals alike, and there is a lively nightlife.
