  • This comfortable 14 room little hotel, which shares some facilities with the adjoining Hostal Valencia, is housed in an eighteenth century building which belonged to the family of Don Pedro Regalado Pedroso y Zayas, who was a “Comendador de la Orden de Isabel la Católica”. The Hostal Valencia has become so popular that it is often frustratingly fully booked, but the Comendador is, if anything, even better, and certainly quieter, although it is slightly more expensive.

    The rooms are very comfortable indeed, and unlike the Valencia they have air conditioning — indispensable in the summer months. Highly recommended, whether you choose a high-ceilinged room on the upper floor or a more cozy one on the mezzanine. The right-hand back room on the top floor has a charming view of the Diana, Princess of Wales Garden and the ships coming and going in the harbor.
