Hotel Arunda II
Ranked #26 of 40 Hotels in Ronda
Reviewed March 9, 2010

We arrived by train and walked for about five minutes to the hotel, which is only 2 blocks from the bus station. Lots of signage. The only negative aspects were that some people ignore the "no smoking" signs in the lobby (while the mgmt says nothing) and the wifi only fully worked for the last 12 hours of our stay there. However, there is a computer in the lobby that you can pay to use, so you don't ever have to be fully without the internet.

Breakfast is included with some of the rooms, not ours, so we didn't try it. They don't do laundry. Parking is available for 8euros a day. Some of the staff was very friendly. The rooms are very clean and affordable. Everything is only a quick walk away. Nothing shabby about the place. Our room had a small TV, a window, and a working heater/AC.

We spent 2 nights here last January. We were glad we did.

Located about a 2 minute walk from the bus station in a multi-story building, the hotel has a small, homey lobby manned by a friendly receptionist. There's a sofa and computer in the lobby, as well as travel brochures.

Instantly, we noticed how clean the place was. The entire place had a fresh smell (not overpowering, just right) and the floors glistened. There is no smoking in the hotel. Our room was small, but had a comfortable bed, armoire, nightstands, tiny TV and a very good heater. The bathroom was good sized, with a tub/shower combo. The water pressure was excellent and there was always hot water. Everything was spotless and so quiet you could hear a pin drop at night.

The best part of the stay was breakfast, which was served in a small room next to the lobby that was decorated with bullfighting and semana santa posters. The friendly desk man quickly made excellent cafe con leches, then toasted large pieces of bread for us. Then, we were able to choose from a large selection of condiments and trimmings -- butter, jam, marmalade, honey, pate, olive oil, tomatoes, orange juice, sweet rolls...and, best of all, cereal -- granola, corn flakes and something that looked like Cocoa Puffs. After a few weeks traveling, we were aching for a nice cold bowl of cereal, so this was a treat.

I would definitely stay there again. Ronda was lovely, but this little hotel made better.

Hotel Arunda II is a budget hotel aimed at travellers who are looking for simple accommodation at a low price. It is located near the bus and rail station and about ten minutes walk from the bridge over the gorge and the older parts of town. We had two twin rooms with single occupancy costing €33 per day. Rooms are clean are sparsely but adequately furnished and are en-suite with a half size bath and shower and importantly lashings of hot water! There is also a TV with many channels but no English language ones. There is an underground car park (€8 per day) which could be handy as parking is tricky near the hotel, but you can usually find a space a few minutes walk away on Andalucia Avenue. Breakfast is included and is served in a small dining area just off reception - it comprised cereal, coffee / chocolate / orange juice and hot toasted bread and was perfectly adequate. There is no restaurant or bar in the hotel but so close to the centre this is not a problem. There is free wi-fi access in the lobby but this does not reach the rooms at present. There is also a computer in the lobby with internet access at €1 per 30 minutes.

+++: It has a garage for your car
+++: very clean bathroom and good beds
++Nearby city center
+: Nice breakfast: 2 toasts, coffee and orange juice
-: Not easy to find because it is a one way street, so watch the signs to the hotel.
-: One receptionist who does everything: When he was making breakfast for other guests he came with us to open the garage.

The hotel's location was not great but still walking distance to the old city and bars.
It had a good parking, secure for €8 a day.
Staff's english was very poor but friendly.
Rooms were basic but clean.
All in all, value for money.

We had booked this hotel on last minute by reading a review in a French travel guide. It was a total disappointment.
All corridors and stairs had a cigarette smoke smell. We checked into the room and there was an unpleasant humidity smell. We opened the windows hoping that the odor will go away. But after sometime we started feeling really uneasy. So my husband went to see the receptionist. Fortunately, she quickly agreed with us that the room was stinking and proposed to put the room freshener!! We told her that we want to change the room. And then she said...ohhh but all other rooms are full!! We told her that either we change room or we leave. So she went back to her desk and came back in 10 mins with keys of a new room where there was no humidity smell. We put our luggages and went out into the town and when we came back at night, none of the lamps in the room were working !!! so we had to go see the reception again and ask the guy to change the lamps (which he did ofcourse)!
In the morning, the guy at reception desk was supposed to serve breakfast in the adjacent room and he seemed more busy fiddling with his computer than serving clients.
The hotel is a bad deal for its location, poor room quality for Ronda. Would not recommend to anyone and would definitely not stay there again.
the only good point is cheap parking (8€)

Our room was clean and comfortable, and very good value at €50 per night including a basic continental breakfast. The air conditioning worked properly. There was some noise from the AC in other rooms, but no street noise. Staff were quite friendly.

Driving there is OK if you keep a very good lookout for the hotel signposts, and the secure car park under the hotel is only €8 per night.
