Is The Hotel Very Far?


Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or a colleague. You tell him/ her that you need to go back to your hotel. Your relative, friend or colleague does not know where your hotel is. He/ she decides to ask the question: "is the hotel very far?".

He/ she could say:
¿Está muy lejos el hotel?


There are a variety of different ways in which this question could be answered. How you would answer depends only on how far you wish to say the hotel is. Perhaps you want to choose between saying that the hotel is:
  • Very far
  • Not very far
  • Quite far
  • Three blocks away
  • Ten minutes away by car

Here are some examples which deal with those basic possibilities:
  • Sí, el hotel está muy lejos (yes, the hotel is very far)
  • No, el hotel no está muy lejos (no, the hotel not very far)
  • El hotel está bastante lejos (the hotel is quite far)
  • El hotel está a tres manzanas (the hotel is two blocks away)
  • The hotel está a diez minutos en coche (the hotel ten minutes by car)

Now you should practice answering the question:
¿Está muy lejos el hotel?
