Essentially an annexe from the main hotel (see Portillo Hotel, therefore, for all the facilities and amenities it shares), this is simply a more economical lodging option. Each room has two sets of bunks and a private bathroom and are therefore ideally suited to four persons. There is a central living space in the middle of the rooms and balconies with views of the slopes. The Octagon is located just steps away from the main hotel and you eat in the main dining room and enjoy all of the same access to the hotel’s facilities and activities as everyone else.

How it works with the Octagon Lodge is that you pay the rate for the bed, booking the entire room if you are a party of four. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself sharing the room with other guests of the same sex. There is the option to close off the room for two or three people, but a premium is applied (you may as well stay in the main hotel!).
