In England I am not aware we would say very far in English. More likely faraway or even use the negative I am sorry the hotel is not vey close, or it's a long way to the hotel

I wrote too far and it was marked as wrong, English isn't my first language so it got me wondering if the word "too" in that sentence could be used the same way as "very" in that type of context. I appreciate any helpful comment about this :)

I put " los siento el hotel esta muy lejos." And it was counted as wrong. And duo lingo has removed the part where you can report anything about needed additions to correct answers. Literally nothing but the comma was left out. Duo linguo is doing a lot of great things including adding stories and pod casts but they still need to continue making corrections to the list of acceptable answers.

I wrote "I'm sorry, the hotel is very distant." and it was rejected. This might be even more correct than "... very far." Using "distant" should be acceptable.

Distant is fine, but it can't be "more correct". That doesn't make sense.

The sentence sounds perfectly natural in American English. This hotel is far and that hotel is very far.
