This is a lovely family run small hotel right in the centre of Ronda . All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is decorated in a traditional moorish style and is very elegant . Our room on the top floor was large with a comfortable bed ,two large seats and a bathroom with shower. Our only criticism... More

A beautiful hotel right in the centre of ronda. Very good value. A beautifully restored old building with super bedroom and lovely ensuite. Bed extremely comfortable and the decor in the bedroom was very tasteful. Breakfast was continental style - tea coffee ham cheese toast yoghurt but best of all a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice ! Staff very... More

Our large 'Superior' room on the top floor was perfect - until we tried to sleep! A major plumbing problem meant noisy pipes and no sleep. But the experts were called and we moved to an adjoining room where we have blissful sleep for the rest of the trip. The staff were quick to deal with this problem - which... More

This hotel is very well located and has a nice facade with tile throughout. Beneath that facade are very small dark rooms in need of painting, poor lighting, and worn and tattered towels. The included breakfast was terrible. The single attendant didn't speak a word of English and was of no help whatsoever. Inexcusable for a "four star" hotel in... More

It is hard to describe how bad the food was. The tomato salad was sprinkled with chunks of raw garlic; the "vegetale" sandwich was two slices of cheap white bread brushed with olive oil outside, and spread with what I think was margarine inside. The fillings were one thin slice of tomato, iceberg lettuce, sliced hard boiled egg, and tuna,... More

We had the breakfast, the "Inglais" version. It was awful. One egg scrambled, a hot dog- literally a hot dog masquerading as a "sausage". the bacon was actually ok. The service was horrible, there was, yes, a hair in my scrambled eggs. We simply paid and left. I have no idea about the hotel, but I would stay away from... More

My wife found this little hotel on Booking.com when looking for a hotel for a couple nights stay in Ronda. What a find! Very reasonably priced. A super little hotel and it's right by the bridge and gorge, ideally located to see all the sights. The rooms are well appointed and totally adequate for a short stay. We would have... More

My wife and I were there at the end of April this year. We were excited to have the presidential suite but that soon turned to disappointment. The suite of rooms smelled musty. The master bedroom was small and the bedside lamp didn't work, the wifi also didn't work, there was not hot water for a shower one morning and... More

The hotel is very well located.That is why it certainly deserves one star. I could not understand , though, where the other stars came from. The safe did not function.The fridge as well.There was a hair drier put there as an ornament. No place to put your toiletries in the bathroom. The closet did not close.The only foreign TV channel...
