“Unexpected surprise in Ronda”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

We had been travelling for several weeks with a car in Spain and did not want to stay in another "old town" area where the parking was so impacted.
Alavera de los Banos was a perfect choice. It is located outside the city but very close walking distance up several stairs. We did not find the stairs to be a problem and there was free parking right in front of the hotel.
The beauty of this hotel is the garden area so try and book one of the 2 patio rooms on the first floor.
Make sure you go when the weather is nice so you can enjoy a lovely breakfast on the patio and a swim in the afternoon.

Lovely house nested in trees just next door from the Arab Baths and steps away from the old town. Beautifully decorated, amazing breakfast on the terrace facing the views, swimming pool. Charming and helpful hosts , a gem.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the garden/pool

Very nice reception lounge with comfortable seating, similar style reflected in the bedrooms. Breakfast included in the tariff was very nice plenty of fresh fruit bread and cheese served on the patio or garden the choice was yours. For a hotel will communication (television or radio) the wifi signal was excellent even when sat around their beautifully very cold swimming pool. The walk into town was uphill but very manageable.

Room Tip: No Air conditioning just central ceiling whirling fan which was very noise at night, room was basic...

An entirely charming renovation of an older property, nestled below the old town of Ronda. Breakfast on the patio was lovely, with the sun rising over the hills, birds singing, and the sound of horses. Our host Christian was very helpful and so were the other staff. The walk up into town is not that strenuous as the cobblestone streets wind around the hill, with spectacular views of the Arab baths, the bridges and the countryside below easing any strain. A beautiful property with amazing views, great food, attentive staff, and a tranquil setting.

Room Tip: Ground level

Unique, incredibly well-done decor. Horses out our window. If you are walking from the train or bus be prepared for a very enjoyable 25 or so min walk from the new town over the most scenic bridge to the old town. The lobby / common area is award winning in its layout and decor. Breakfast is included and delicious. Very peaceful setting.

Room Tip: Ask to have your room face the pool and horses

Yes you do have to trek up to the old and new part of town, but the walk isn't that bad if you take your time and certainly not with luggage. Bathroom is a bit tight, but the hotel overall is a lovely place to relax. Would recommend and hope to return.

We had just flown in from a week in frenetic Morocco and fell in love with this charming hotel. Be sure to get a room on the first floor with a private terrace. You will be glad you did. One night was not enough and we will be sure to visit again. Rooms were a tad small but made up for in charm and location. The owners are on site and could not be more accommodating.
