“I feel slightly misled ....”
Reviewed July 31, 2011

We've visited the charming town of Osuna before (we live near Estepona) and liked it so much we thought it would be a good place to explore for a weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel description on the booking agency site I looked at states king size doubles - we were given twin beds, despite my requesting a double when I booked. I read the facilities as having a hot tub as well as a pool. In fact there was only a pool the size of a carp pool so would be better described as a plunge pool. Yes, the hotel is charming but the beds are hard and only one very thin pillow provided. The air conditioning unit was behind two sets of curtains at the window overlooking the inner courtyard, so to benefit from the air conditioning we had to have the curtains open so that anyone walking past opposite our room could see in. Air con most necessary as temperature very high at around 37 degrees and the only window was to the inner courtyard. The drain cover in the middle of the shower floor was completely loose, exposing a 4" square drain hole - very dangerous if you caught your foot on it.
What really spoilt our stay is that Osuna closes for August - completely - so on Saturday 30th July there were no restaurants or tapas bars and very few bars open. So a word of warning to any prospective travellers to rural Spain in the summer as this can completely spoil your enjoyment of your holiday, something we should all be aware of.
A small hotel, full of character and history but I'm glad our stay was for just one night.

La Casona is a beautiful museum piece lovingly brought back to life by owner Elena who explained to us, while giving us a tour of the hotel as a museum piece, that the casa belonged to her grandmother. Plaster walls and false floors which had been installed over the years were stripped away, at what must have been great expense, to reveal the original floor tiling and stone walls. The hotel is full of beautiful art and antiques reflecting life in Osuna from Roman times when Osuna was on the main road connecting Rome with Cadiz (then Gades). Our room was absolutely charming and overlooked the typical inner patio or courtyard. Though we were there for one night, and a Saturday night at that, the hotel and room were very quiet in the evening despite complaints of a Spanish traveller which is in preceding review. I personally inspected the neighbouring bar and it was almost empty at 11 p.m. In fact, the story of the Spanish traveler's stay was revealed to us. I will only say that it is a shame that these days a reviewer can use the power of the internet to cast a completely false impression, dissuade future travellers and harm a well-meaning and honest owner's business and serious investment.

We booked through Booking.com where there are several comments by non-Spanish travelers about the meagerness of the breakfast. First, the hotel is very reasonably priced. We stayed for 78 Euro. This includes internet access and breakfast. The breakfast is what Spanish people typically eat for breakfast: toast, coffee and juice. Spanish cafeterias are full of local people having the exact same breakfast. The breakfast was completely to our satisfaction.

Parking. We found free street parking across the street.

About Osuna. This is a beautiful city whose "monumental area" is best appreciated by an evening stroll following the typically late Spanish dinner. As for the place to eat, go to the Casa Curro. We have been travelling Andalucia for over 3 weeks and the Case Curro is the absolute best....head and shoulders above the rest. Perhaps Sevilla has better but we have not yet reached that point in our itinerary. The staff at Casa Curro were patient and kind and the ambiance is terrific. Very lively with local Osunians and their lovely families and beautiful children. We had both lunch and dinner there and only barely scratched the surface of the gourmet delights on offer.
