The smallest hotel

Is it the world's smallest hotel, hard to say. But the fact that it is listed in the Guinness Book of Records is in this category, there is no doubt. He came in the Guinness Book in 1992 and is famous not only in tiny sizes, but also location. And it is located on the shores of the remote of the Canary Islands - El Hierro volcanic

Las Puntas - a small, picturesque village located in the eastern part of the Gulf of El Golfo, at the foot of La Peña, in the municipality of Frontera. This is one of the most beautiful places in the Gulf, who had previously played a very important role in the economy of the island.

On a small stone ledge in 1884 was built customs, actively used in the 20-ies. Then the local products were exported to ports in Northern Europe and the inhabitants of El Hierro necessary goods were brought to the island.
Today, in a small restored building customs placed comfortable hotel Hotel Punta Grande. The hotel has a total of four double rooms and a small restoranchik.V hotel does not have cable TV and telephone. Rooms nothing more. Rest in Punta Grande, not for luxury, but for unity with nature, which is nothing to prevent. Let me remind you that in 2000, the island of El Hierro was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
