Reviewed August 25, 2012

The staff is friendly and helpful; the WiFi is free and it works; the rooms that don't overlook the street are quiet; and the heating/ac works well. The room was basic, but pleasantly decorated, clean, and comfortable. The plumbing works beautifully, even if you may have to wait a minute for hot water. There is Spanish television, but not international. It's not really wheelchair accessible, but there is a lift, a godsend for someone who has trouble with stairs. There is secure parking for an extra fee. The staff will kindly mind your luggage in reception on the day you check out, send faxes, print your boarding pass, get you a taxi in the wee hours, help you get to the farmacia -- all the little things that, for me at least, are more important than a minibar or a swimming pool. Travelling alone, security can be an issue, and I have reason to feel safe here. As a base of operations in Ronda, it's perfect. While the cost may be a little more than the backpack/hostel set want to pay, I think it is great value for the money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not on the street. I requested a nonsmoking room and was given one with not...

In a town where driving the narrow streets is a challenge and parking is at a premium, we very much appreciated the secure parking garage. The room was sparse, but clean and okay for one night. Breakfast was more than adequate.

Pleasant helpful reception. Hotel garage for parking the car. Comfortable room and nice bathroom. Good location for having a walking tour of the old and new town. Loads of shops and bars around.

Me and my wife spent one night at Hotel El Tajo. The hotel is located in the "new" part of Ronda, in a quite anonymous street, but just around the corner of the main shopping street. In any case, all the most important places to see are easily reachable on foot in just a few minutes.
The pros:
•The staff is extremely kind and friendly. Mrs. Carmen (apparently one of the hotel's owners) is married with an Italian guy and reserved us a very warm welcome, providing us all the necessary indications to visit the town and the surroundings
•The hotel has its own indoor parking lot, featuring some 10-15 places: this seems to be a plus, as the streets around were always overcrowded during our stay, and the other public parking in the Plaza del Socorro and close to the Plaza de Toros were full since early morning.
• At the time of reservation (I contacted directly the hotel via e-mail), the rate was cheaper than other Ronda's three star hotels
The cons:
• The hotel's external appearance is not particularly attractive, and the rooms are quite basic (though clean). The room's furniture seems quite old and tired (though this may add "character" to the hotel, if you like it), as well as the air conditioner.
• Our room faced the main road and the noise during the day and night might be annoying if you are used to sleep in complete silence.
All in all, I would better rate this hotel as a decent two-stars instead of a three-stars.

Excellent value, good standard accommodation, with its own parking which was a necessary bonus. Great location, easy to walk around the shops, restuarants and sights very nearby. Hotel difficult to approach by car, due to one-way system (just keep trying!) Drive up to garage door and hoot as CCTV system at reception means they will open doors.

Centrally situated hotel. The arena, shops and restaurants are within a short walk. Difficult to find by car because of all the one way streets. The entrance is dark and small. The rooms are clean and the reception is friendly. Nice hotel to visit Ronda.
