“A little gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2011

This was the first of three hotels on a Great Rail Journeys tour of Andalusia. Our flight had been delayed which meant we didn't arrive until 9pm after dark. None the less, the hotel was geared up to serving a lovely meal of tuna salad, swordfish steak and fruit salad to the group of 29. In the morning we had the usual continental style buffet breakfast and it was time to take in the surroundings. The hotel externally is fairly nondescript, but inside it has an olde-world charm coupled with all the modern features one would expect of a 4* hotel. The room 309 was spacious, and although it was located at the rear of the building with no view, it meant we did not suffer from the road noise that the front rooms did. The location is central, opposite the oldest bullring in Spain and a lovely shaded alameda from which there are magnificent views of the gorge, a 200m sheer drop beyond safety railings. The famous Roman bridge leading to the old city is 300m to the left. Ronda is a fascinating city and I recommend a short stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Probably best to have a room at the back to avoid road noise.

Just spent 2 nights here with the Girl and having stayed at some other Ronda hotels over the years was very impressed with this one. Location is perfect just across the road from the Bullring and the square. Room was a double inside so no road noise, not huge but enough for tow bathroom fine and the air-con some of the most efficient we have ever had. Right beside the famous Pedro Romero restaurant and a 2-3 minute walk to numerous other great places to eat, you really cant go wrong. Be warned the parking here is very tight so the guys at reception will park it for you, it is very easy to damage your car ( I should know ) there is a charge of 10 euro a day which may seem steep, but public parking in Ronda is impossible.

We got a great rate for B&B at 97 euro per night, breakfast is good not a huge choice but all any sensible person could have wanted if they finished dinner at midnight the night before, which you really should do. Ronda is fabulous. Go and stay here.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Bullring can be very noisy.

It was 6 months ago so many details have been forgotten. I do recall that the elevator does not go to all floors, so you end up traversing some stairs with your luggage (inconvenient for seniors such as me). Also the carpeting in hallways was worn and stained. The room was small but clean. The location was excellent for wandering the lovely old streets of central Ronda.

We travelled to Ronda from Gibraltar with our son and his family, so looked for a Hotel in a good location and with a car park as we had read in other reviews that parking is difficult in Ronda. We weren't disappointed, this Hotel is literally 2 minutes walk from the Bull Ring and has an underground car park. The Hotel do charge per night to park there but it is well worth it. Some of the staff spoke better English than others, but we managed to make ourselves understood. They were all very pleasant and helpful. We had 2 rooms next to each other, ours being slightly larger. Both had laminate floors, nice bedding and curtains. Ours had patio doors onto a juliette balcony overlooking the side street.The bathrooms were very modern and clean and we had two basins set in a marble top, toiletries were provided.
Having read other reviews, we weren't sure what to expect for breakfast, but we found the choice of cereal,fresh fruit,yoghurts,ham,cheese,rolls,croissants and cakes to be adequate. There was also a small selection of scrambled egg,sausage and streaky bacon. The restaurant offered a set menu for 12 euros, but can't comment on the quality as we ate out, in search of tapas and paella ! We did have lunch in the snack bar next door and that was good value.
The views in Ronda are spectacular and a walk round the old town is a must, to see the architecture. We also enjoyed a visit to the Bull Ring, one of the oldest in Spain.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Hotel and would certainly stay there again.

We travelled by car and were happy to find this central hotel with parking (it was raining cats and dogs outside), reasonable price and a perfect local restaurant next door.
MOST IMPRESSIVE: next day we travelled to Granada (200 km), where we found out that my husband's jacket with his passport in a pocket had been left in Ronda hotel... We made a phone call to Maestranza, and a receptionist assured us that both the jacket and the passport was still there, and that he will send them with urgent delivery company next morning. Our flight was next day from Malaga, we got our parcel at Maestranza Hotel in Malaga, delivered by speed post. It costed us 10 euro. EXCELLENT SERVICE through the Maestranza Hrotels network! Thanks so much!

We stayed here at the end of August after driving from Malaga. The hotel was relatively easy to find by car, and had its own car park.
The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, we parked in the hotel carpark for 1 night at a cost of €10.
The hotel was opposite the bullring and the bridge was a 5 minute stroll down the road. The room we had was a good size and had air conditioning. We had a room at the front of the hotel overlooking the bullring.
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would recomment it to anyone else visiting Ronda.

We had a terrible experience: we got verbally abused by the receptionist who became physically threatening as she worked herself into a frenzy. All because we parked in the hotel carpark (due to a very ambiguous sign outside). Thoroughly unpleasant, would be worried for my safety so would never consider staying at this hotel.
