We found and booked this hotel through an internet site. When we arrived it was all that we had wanted in a small hotel in the mountains of Spain and in a pueblo blanco village. Our host was very accommodating and the room was very comfortable, the afternoon sun streaming in through the window. Do not expect chic and designer... More

Staying at Los Castaños is like being in a warm, comfortable home with the benefits of delicious meals and living in your own suite. My suite was fitted with a kettle, tea and coffee, a mini-fridge filled with drinks and small bottles of wine (drinks and wine cost extra but are inexpensive), and a spacious bathroom. Breakfast is a good... More

This is quite a little hotel/B&B. But you really have to understand the experience that staying here affords the traveler in order to appreciate this review. Staying in Cartajima as opposed to a big city is a great choice. Every morning you awaken to a rooster in the distance, not an annoying rooster but the kind you wish you had... More

Wow, what can I say except thankyou! Our terrace presents an always changing mood none moreso than early morning when the mountain ridges appear as dark silhouettes. I hope we can see you again in slightly warmer times. Di More

The view from the room was just great. It was spacious and you couldn't have a better bed. You can feel that Di and John care for their guests. The food was also really tasty. Cartajima is a very quiet and relax place if you want to rest. You can also do a lot of walking all around.

Our stay at Hotel Los Castanos with Di and John was a wonderful break in our otherwise very busy travels throughout Andelusia. Di and John made us feel like family and the hotel had a very homey feel. This is a special and quiet place to regroup and rest but within a short drive of Ronda and other white towns.... More

Enjoy beautiful hilltop accommodation - You can do day trips from Cartajima to Ronda and other towns. If we return to Spain, we will avoid staying in the more commercial towns and stay in the country. We could love to return to Hotel Los Castanos! Both dinner and breakfast were delicious. Any place where I can have a french press... More

The hotel is a labour of love for its owners. Di was there to welcome us when we arrived and showed us to our lovely room with its little balcony and beautiful view. The small hotel (9 rooms) is beautifully decorated and furnished with a big lobby area with comfortable seating. The communal dining table was the focus of a... More

Thank you, it is always a pleasure to have such appreciative guests. For any groups out there looking for somewhere to stay, we only have 6 rooms and if you prefer to eat alone communal dining is a decision for our guests on the day. More

I stayed in this hotel with my wife while we were traveling through Andalucia. I happily recommend it for any kind of traveler. The hotel has a traditional look, but has all modern conveniences.

We stayed at Los Castanos for two nights in early September as part of a 10 day trip through Andalucía. The hotel is a cool, peaceful oasis in the Spanish countryside. Our room was spacious and tastefully decorated with a beautiful view of the mountains. Our hosts had obviously put a great deal of thought into making sure their guests... More

One thing was to stay in a white village and have a relaxing time with options. Los Castanos fulfilled this easily.
