The privilege

Located on a hillside overlooking the Tena Valley, in the town of Tramacastilla de Tena -in the center of the Aragonese Pyrenees-, The history of the hotel The Privilege of Tena dates back to 1470, when its hard walls housed an abbey that later became a manor house. Five centuries later, its current owners, Juan Ignacio Pérez Ferrer and Anabel Costas Cativiela, decided to transform it into a cozy hotel that combined a privileged location - with massifs at its back like the Balaitus, 3,151 m high, or the Arriel, of 2,886 m, and the most extensive set of lakes of the Aragonese Pyrenees among its tops- with a cosmopolitan decoration and high quality facilities.

With the advice of architect Luis Serrano Castañer they planned the project in two phases. The first was to rehabilitate the abbey; For this, its original structure was respected, the stone facade was polished to recover its beauty and the interior was distributed in five rooms. Each of them received the name of some of the ancient places that, five hundred years ago, formed the Tena Valley: "Tramacastilla", "Piedrafita", "Escarrilla", "Sandiniés" and "Quiñón de la Partacua". In the second phase the hotel was expanded with an adjoining building inaugurated in December 2003 in which the architectural features of the area were respected, with stone walls, woodwork and slate roofs that integrate seamlessly into the environment. Today the visitor can choose between 28 rooms: 13 doubles, 9 attic superior doubles, 2 junior suites with lounge and fireplace and 4 suites: “Abbey”, with fireplace and Jacuzzi integrated in the living room, “Attic View”, with fireplace in the Attic lounge, "El Quiñón de la Partacua", which in addition to living room with fireplace has a bathroom on the lower level equipped with column and separate hot tub. Finally, the special suite “El Privilegio”, located in the attic, has 100 m2, independent access and integrated jacuzzi in the living room from which the Búbal reservoir is contemplated.

When decorating the hotel, the owners opted for warm materials that withstand the extreme temperatures of the area; for example, the exterior carpentry, including the large windows, were made of iroco wood, and the attic ceilings were lined with stained pine. In addition, they decided on current design furniture that, far from the typical mountain hotels, made guests feel in a cozy environment with all the comforts of urban housing. The interesting services offered by the hotel contribute to this: from a pillow menu to the possibility of babysitting and ski storage, the recently opened spa and the activities that are organized from The Privilege of Tena (Cross-country skiing on the slopes of La Partacua, alpine skiing in Panticosa and Formigal, canyoning, rafting, caving, hydrospeed, canoeing, quads, yacht club, horseback riding, megalithic route, etc.). Not forgetting their delicious menu, with dishes such as cod confit or cow cheeks "Privilege." In short, a very tempting offer that cannot be missed.
