Staying at the San Gabriel in Ronda was one of the best hotel experiences ever! This boutique hotel is unbelievable. Right from the time we booked this hotel, everything was perfect. We had extremely efficient e-mail communication with the hotel during the booking process and after staying there, I can't believe how inexpensive it was!
We stayed here for 3 nights in August and had two beautiful guest rooms on the second floor that overlooked the courtyard (rooms 7 & 8). The rooms were very spacious, clean, quiet and nicely decorated. The rooms were very comfortable and the rooms were also equipped with air conditioning that you could control your self.
This hotel had so many wonderful features - it's beautifully decorated, with a lovely library/lounge area, a mini movie theatre with dvds that you can screen, and a cozy little courtyard to relax in. There is also a computer with free internet access for guests to use. Something else that we discovered during our stay was that there is also a wine cellar - at one point during our stay we noticed a small sign that read "fancy a glass of sherry? let us know". One sweltering afternoon, we arrived back at the hotel to relax, and we enquired about the glass of sherry. We then got a tour of the cellar, learned about some history of the house, and then were told to help ourselves to a bottle of sherry and if we needed more, just to help ourselves to another bottle!! and there wasn't even a charge for this!! It was fantastic!!
As well, we also really loved the breakfast every morning that was included with our stay. The breafast room was very cute and the set up for breakfast was really nice. It was basically a continental breakfast with a selection of yoghurt, cereal, cakes, toast with preserves and cheeses. Not to mention the best freshly made cafe con leche!!
I could go on forever about how amazing this hotel is. The location is perfect - on a quiet street in the "old town" very convenient to all of the major sites in Ronda, and not too far from the new bridge. The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. I wish that we could have stayed longer. I would love to return for another stay and highly reccomend this hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This carefully restored building dates from the 18th century and lies in the most historic district of Ronda, surrounded by ancient monuments.Retaining much of its original charm, the San Gabriel still displays an attractive stone façade and the coat of arms of one of its former owners. Spend a quiet moment in the library corner or in the typically Andalusian courtyard, full of plants and a trickling fountain. Here you can start the day with the hotel’s delicious breakfast. You can also enjoy a film in the intimate cinema room, which includes red velvet seats taken from the city’s old cinema. Combined with its privileged location, the hotel facilities make this a truly authentic Spanish setting for your holiday in rural Andalusia. ... more less
