“Mad, fun, brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

This is certainly the most fun you can have in a hotel with the lights on. The eccentric, artistic decor compliments the stunning views of the countryside. The rooms are comfortable and clean, but you'll want to spend most of your time exploring the weird, wonderful rooms and terraces.

Did somebody mention a free bar? Hard to believe, but to cap it all you can help yourself to beer and wine and enjoy it while taking in the views.

All this and lovely Ronda is just up the hill, with its tapas bars, bull ring and spectacular Puente Nuevo.

One of the most amazing and arty hotels we have been too! Every corner of the hotel and garden has been specially designed. The hotel is full of art, surprises and quirkly corners. Great food too and bar in the price of a room!. The breakfast was probably the best we have had in a hotel. Very comfortable room and extremely friendly staff. The city itself (Ronda) is breathtaking. Highly recomended!

This hotel is literally the most fun, quirky, wonderful hotel we experienced on our two month backpacking trip through Europe. Combine great views, with wonderful complimentary breakfast, tons of nooks and crannys for a couple to explore, good books and games, comfortable rooms, and friendly staff...let alone all the quirkiness. This place is fun, romantic, and unexpected. I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in teh beautiful city of Ronda. i cannot wait to return one day.

I don't know from where the name came or by whom it was created but this hotel is certainly different. Its decor is, to say the least, unusual and in the bar pull your own beer, pour your own wine and its free!

If you're looking for something different in Spanish holidays then you must take a look at Ronda in Andalusia and especially ths Hotel Enfrente Arte possibly the most laid back hotel in Europe.The hotel is worth the visit alone and the free bar helps with the chilled out atmosphere.

Love this quirky hotel! It has 12 rooms all with their own theme. The reception desk is a fiat car, the bar tables are car tyres & surf boards, there are bullfighters hats for lightshades etc etc. Everywhere you look is a talking point. Nearly forgot free bar(great when it is your round) and fantastic inclusive breakfast. If you need to cool down there is also a pool in the hotel gardens. I like room 6 as has a terrace with direct access to pool. For romantics ask for the tower room which is separate from the main hotel. Looking forward to my next visit!

This hotel is so sweet. Went with the whole family (grandma, parents, sister, brother in law, girlfriend) and we were all impressed with the service, cleanliness, and amenities. There is a self service bar, yerp you read right, with beer on tap, juice, wine, espresso machine, the list goes on (no liquor for obvious reasons). Breakfast is included and is one of the best I've had because it's original and exciting. Not just bread butter and jam here. Let's see: omelette/egg bar, avocado mousse things, fresh fruit, some sort of fish carpaccio, can't remember everything but clearly someone there cares about good food! There is a swimming pool and sauna (only used the sauna cause it was March) as well as several terraces to explore and relax on with jaw dropping views over the cliffs. The service was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend to the whole family or just couples.
