“Absolute bargain in the winter”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

We booked on Disneyworld.com for two nights in Feb, and paid 15 Euro's PPPN, which is cheaper than the hostels we'd been staying in recently. For that, we got a double room, with comfy beds, and a large radiator which kept the room a nice temp day and might. The bathroom was massive, bigger than some rooms we had stayed in.

I guess it's all a matter of perspective - if I'd payed 90 Euro's I would have found fault with the slightly dated decor, or only having 1 pillow each, or the slightly dodgy WiFi connection. But it was clean and tidy,there was a free pc to use, the staff were really friendly, and we had ourselves a bargain price in the centre of town, just 30 seconds from the beautiful park and 1 minute from the Bull-ring, so we were very happy.

One thing for those of you driving - there is a note in the lift advising patrons to come to reception before parking the car as you can buy discounted 24hr and 48hr parking tickets - they're supposedly cheaper than buying at the car park directly (it's only just around the corner, but I'm assuming people may already have parked by the time they get to use the hotel lift, so a quick heads up for you).

Hotel Polo is situated in the new town just 5 - 10 minutes walk from the old ton and bridge. It is in the centre so has easy access to restauants, shops etc. The rooms do need a bit of updating as the decoration is a bit tired. Looking at the previous reviews I don't agree that the rooms and carpets are dirty they are just old and shabby. I found no evidence of dirt. The breakfast is reasonably priced but a little lacking in choice. So if you want something more substantial there are many local cafe's. I think that the star rating of 3 is not really appropriate I would say it was a 2 star at best. Having said this for the price of the hotel is excellent value for money. The staff are very friendly and accomodating.

Hotel Polo is in a central area. From the hotel you can walk to all sites of interest. The bathroom is nice, with a nice shower and space. The room has a nice space and the beds are ok. The only problem was the carpet. We could see that it has not been cleaned for days. For allergic people I would not reccomend this hotel. It would be a nicer place if they changed the carpet for something like wood carpet.
There is a good place with breakfast downstairs and free wifi at the ground floor.

The hotel was really easy to get to from the train station and we found it straight away. The staff were friendly and the room was clean if basic. The air conditioning worked well but noisily. The location, just behind the main square is perfect, near to all the sights. Good budget hotel, we paid EUR 50 in August which was great for something so centrally located.

As per a previous review, we followed the Lonely Planet guide.

The hotel was relatively easy to find, and we got the car parked nearby on the street for free - a top tip from the receptionist - easy to get a space during the siesta time between 2pm and 5pm. Otherwise itś Euro8.50 in the underground carpark around the corner. You can offload your bags directly outside the hotel.

The room was fairly basic, but clean. Noise overnight from a very lively bar outside did mean that sleep was disturbed.

The breakfast was basic -poor, as has also been noted in other reviews.

The bar is a bit eclectic (my opinion), or dingy, dirty and a few years past itś best (hubandś opinion!)

But for Euro 65 we thought it was not bad for the money, and all the staff were lovely.

Hotel Polo was fine, but a bit expensive for the quality of the room. The room was large, but felt like it needed an overhaul. The couch in our room was falling apart and we didn't really want to sit on it. The hotel seems to be across the street from a school and there were some noisy children outside the window early in the morning.

Breakfast was included but was not as good as some other breakfasts we had at comparably priced hotels in Andalucia.

The staff was very helpful though and they have a pretty good deal on parking (8.50 euro per day) at a lot not too far from the hotel.

Having arrived in Ronda after a days driving we booked into the first hotel we seen. It was €80 for a double room and another €10 for parking in underground car park at the plaza de socorro. The hotel was fine, a coll bar at the side of the hotel, but we didnt think it was 3 star and not worth the money in comparison to others.
