El Hotelito 27, Santa Cruz La Palma, La Palma
Spot the typo/wordplay as you step inside Santa Cruz de La Palma's El Hotelito 27. For the door reads El L'Otelito. Perhaps it's a linguistic joke as the Spanish famously drop their hs like Cockneys. The eighth letter of the alphabet is pronounced as silently in the Iberian mainland and islands as it is in Bow and its immediate surroundings. This three-star hotel is of the boutique variety which makes perfect sense as the La Palma capital is home to a mere 16,000 inhabitants. It's a little hotel with a big heart. Bright and white, it lets the light in. El Hotelito 27 is kept spotlessly clean, as you can see thanks to the magnifying power of sunshine.
