Dark wood and volcanic rock were used in building this hotel at the edge of Pucón on the road to Calburga. It's about a 15-minute walk from the hubbub of downtown, but Malalhue's many fans see that as a selling point. The cozy sitting room just off the lobby with a fireplace and couches is so inviting you may want to linger there for hours. But the guest rooms, with their plush comforters and pillows, beckon, too. The top-floor "superior" rooms under the gables are more
spacious and contain vaulted ceilings; they're a few thousand pesos more than the "standard" rooms, which are perfectly acceptable in their own right and in the same style as the "superiors," though smaller.
