The setting. The views were wonderful and our room had a private terrace so we could enjoy them even more. We dined at the hotel and the food was very disappointing. I had the pasta which contained three cm squares of meat and one slice of mushroom. That is absolutely true! My friends' meals were equally tasteless. The hotel is also in need of some serious TLC but the former glory still shows through and we will stay again, but only eat there if they hire a chef!
its location in Ronda balcony rooms with spectacular views hot water very scarce
The location and gardens. Also we were given a room with an attractive view. Spacious room, comfortable and clean. Our room suffered from the smell of damp: water had seeped in from the bathroom above?
the viez no street signs saying where it was
gardens and view staff mediocre, some facilities in poor repair
Views and position No information as to facilities activities or local area except one brochure about the bull ring!! Amazing
We like the hotel's proximity to town and the fabulous views of the valley below Ronda, especially from the hotel balcony. Reception staff members were helpful. The food in the restaurant was good, too. Creaky wooden floors in the very long hallways. The overall sense that the hotel's "golden" days are well behind it.
The room was beautiful. The location was close to the center of town and the view of the mountains was peaceful. The staff was nice and the we enjoyed our stay. The bed was not that comfortable and the water was not as hot as I would have liked. I like hot showers.
Free parking ( no reservation required) ; very important in Ronda.Good-sized room , very comfortable. Wonderful views from our balcony. May be an issue with sound-proofing between rooms though we were not really troubled.
VHotelery plesant staff and Very comfortable Resturant Menu quite limited
Amazing location, facility, service, food. Even parking. This is the second time I have stayed here and cannot say enough about the staff- superb! Especially Jesus- who has gone above and beyond each time to ensure our stay was terrific!
room, breakfast, ambient, position
Location most definately!
The balcony of our room and the view were outstanding. The room was large, bright, and comfortable.
Central location with numerous places to eat. Great views over the valley. 20 euros per day car parking.
Perched on the cliffside, this hotel is one of the best. The rooms were spacious, well appointed and the swimming pool overlooked the valley below. The breakfast was also fantastic.
The hotel was very well located. Easy to find and easy to park. These things matters much in old historic places. Top notch! The room was spacious, and even though we did not have the superior room we had a lovely small terrasse (all rooms have terrasses) with a nice view. We were very happy in the hotel and the city of Ronda.
Nothing Over priced. We cancelled our stay after viewing the smelly room with aircondition that doesn't work because the hotel is switching it to a cooling system only in May. We had 30 degrees in the room.
This parador is an enchanting place. Once you get to it you just forget the outside world and could stay there forever with time standing still. The location is it's main feature and the layout brings out the best views of the countryside around Ronda. Maybe not affordable to everyone.
Nice location and good view I didn`t have much time to have breakfasr because of the train.(Londa 08:58) I hope it starts at least from 7:30.
Buautiful place on the bridge. The place itself must see sight. 20Euro parking fee for one night.
Nice little hotel Good location No parking facilities.
Todo bien la verdad. Muy aconsejable.
Overall the hotel was good, friendly staff, good location, good wifi. Parking not too far away. My only complaint was the carpeting in the bedroom. It was old and stained so you couldn't tell if it was clean or not.
The triple room is big. NONE
Visited Grazelema and walked in the NAture Reserve No teat/coffee making facilities in the room
Cute and cozy rooms, friendly staff, perfect location near the center of town! Nada :)
Location was good.
Good value Dirty Room Carpet
clean and convenient no real dislikes - just a simple easy to use hotel
Central location and ease of parking
location + value for money + cheap parking possibility
Close to views and bridge. The room was very clean and beds were comfortable Breakfast was not too good
The girl at reception is very pleasant, chatty and speaks good english. The hotel is beautiful with a lovely patio and great views and its great for visiting the whole town on foot as its right in the middle and everything is five minutes away. The room and bathroom are quite small but ok for a short stay.
Very good standard of the Hotel. Beautiful rooms and nice terrace with an astonishing view. Excellant restaurant with good food and a nice selection of wines. No internet computer available for guests.
Reserved the room with view and it did not dissapoint us. Hotel was not large, but had very airly rustic feeling. The room and bathroom was large and tempreture was controlled automatically by sensor. It had adjoining restaurant with even better view and excellent dinner selection. Although it is not a part of hotel, they served the breakfast at this restaurant as well. Hotel staffs were very warm and nice. I had to print out some E-mail attachement and they let me print out from public room PC to front office printer. WIFI worked fine in our room as well.
A charming hotel nestled on a cliff edge and close to the Town centre, oozing with character and definitely one of the smallest outdoor swimming pools, but at the same time with the most amazing views. Our room was compact, but ample for two and the decoration was ornate, a wonderful romantic feel to the whole place, clean and friendly with helpful smiling staff The only improvement would have been coffee making facilities in the room
The position of the hotel, overlooking the Ronda gorge is very spectacular. The staff were extremely nice and freindly. The meal, the setting and the service was exquisite. The room was very comfortable but we would have liked a room overlooking the gorge but we booked on a late booking and there was only one room left. Nothing
The view from our room was breathtaking. Parking is a little way away but that is true of most city hotels. A wonderful experience and helpful staff.
The location is excellent alongside the cliff edge at Ronda. The dining room looks over the edge and towards the bridge. Book a car park as it's just up the street and the staff help you in and out with the car, but it only has 4 spaces so book early!
Staff was super friendly and the view is simply breath taking (if you take a room with a view that is). Hotel is very central and very charming. The room smelled of sewer. The hotel seems to be aware of it but so far unable to do anything about it.
Personal approach and friendliness of staff made the whole family relax and enjoy the stay. In addition staff knew the area well and gave good advice for what to see and how to travel.
The staff at this hotel are very friendly. The hotel is right on the edge of the gorge near to the bridge. The view from the restaurant as the sun sets is very special, the food is good too. It might be a good idea to check out what's happening in the town such as bull fights and festivals. There's some interesting things if you go at the right time. Parking is a nightmare, but you're in a Spanish hilltop town with a Moorish history. What do you expect!!!
A good location and very pleasant staff.
Very convenient for the town Hotel a little shabby. Breakfat poor. Room very small
the hotel was very welcoming and friendly. However it was about 10/15 minutes from the main attractions and this was a problem for me as I have a disability. Excellent staff clean and friendly however the hotel was difficult to find as it was down a courtyard. It is in an excellent position for those wishing to be near the bus or train station
Situation in the town Breakfast cereal served in a coffee cup!!!!!!
The location of the hotel was quite nice, close to the station and the town centre. The breakfast staff was nice. Staff at checkin were not rude, but not friendly either. My room had one window facing the staircase, so there was no natural light, and I could not have the curtains or window open. It was quite noisy at night as everyone walked up and down just past my window. The room smelled terribly strongly of old cigarette smoke, and despite it being "strictly not smoking" there was an ashtray next to the bed, which I guess explains the smell. The bed wasn't very comfortable - the wooden headboards are not attached to the cheap metal bases at all. I suppose for the price I paid I can't really complain, plus it was clean and conveniently located, but it didn't make for a pleasant stay at all.
location, just 50 meters from bus station and 500 meters from train station
For the money, good value. Room was clean and of a good size, and included breakfast was good and served promptly. Free internet for those who don't have their own computer would be a nice add-on.
The hotel is well situated in Ronda. It has underground parking facilities, which is very good, although we were lucky and able to park just outside in the street. The rooms are small & simple, but clean & good value for money.
The location and the price of the Hotel were great. The staff was helpful and friendly. There some ants in our room.
Price and location Wifi was barely usable in our room. A bad smell in the hallway and a couple of bugs.
We chose suite which had sitting area as well. No evidence we could be served coffee later in the evening
Very central. Old fashioned hotel but perfect for one night. Friendly staff.
Very central location, right in the town centre and close to all tourist attractions. Parking is difficult in Ronda and the hotel's own underground car park is a big advantage. Staff were extremely efficient and friendly. The buffet breakfast was of a very good standard for the type of hotel.
The hotel is in a great location, in the center of Ronda, and the entire staff and owner are very friendly.
Location close to Puente Nuevo and arena, stuff very helpful, a lot of bars and restorans in the area.
Even though this was a four star hotel the staff could not be more welcoming so far as the storage of our (rather dirty) bicycles were concerned. They were locked away in a special room - that is what I call hospitality, unlike some hotels I could mention.
A really nice hotel with good facilities and parking. The shopping and tourist spots are all around this hotel and as long as you remembr that the shops use the antiquated system closing 2 to 5pm you will have a good time although 1 night will be enough to see everything local. We had a pleasent stay and then moved to the coast for entertainment because there is not much of that here in Ronda.
Hotel was centrally located and was clean, confortable and of very good standard. I left my shoes in the rooom and they promptly couriered themmto me which was greatly appreciated. WiFi in rooms which is very convenient. We used the cafe for breakfast which was "good' but suggest eating our for dinner.
Great location, very convenient parking
Location. Friendly english speaking staff.
The location was outstanding and the room offered us a view of Ronda. The staff were helpful at all times and I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
Hotel décor, design and ambience. Breakfast was incredibly poor and whilst staff were friendly, they seemed stretched as there wasn't enough working.
easy access to sites, very friendly staff
Value for money. Location so long as we insisted upon rooms with view. Problem of parking arrangements; having to enter via paid parking area where personnel insisted we pay even though hotel has arrangements.Hotel staff challenged the parking staff but we had already had to pay!this has gone on apparently for 6 years but still isn't resolved!
Great location right by the bridge over the gorge and next to the bullring. Staff was very friendly even walking us out to the car with umbrellas when we were leaving because it was raining.
Very friendly staff, also the hotel is in the centre of toen Nothing
very little , this is not a four star hotel. It offers none of the facilities accociatedx with this categorty of hotel, the price was fair enough for what it was but it self was a major disappointment
Great location, very professional staff, very comfortable room, original design! Nothing to complain about!
Location of the hotel is good. Rooms are modern, but there is not nearly enough light in the rooms. In the evening you seem to be wandering around in a sort of semi-darkness. Staff at reception spoke hardly any English. Breakfast very basic. Better to have breakfast somewhere else.
Not a 4 Star by any means but more like a 2/2.5.Therefore very expensive and somewhat disappointing. Room was tired - Breakfast was very limited and the back of the building with no natural light.
View and close to everything
Amazing. Perfect location, gorgeous room and incredibly nice and helpful staff. Five stars.
Food and fantastic views/history.
We were given the bridal suite as it was our honeymoon at no extra charge - something we thought was wonderfull - Thank You The staff are muy simpatico y amable
The room, the ambience, the courtyard, the location, No. The only slight disappointment was the breakfast.
We travelled through Spain for three weeks and this was the best hotel we stayed in .. and many others were lovely hotels. The facilites and the service were excellent. We particularly appreciated the plan of the walking tour we were given when we arrived. What a great idea. We would happily recommend this hotel to our friends.
Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent and useful literature on what do do in and around ronda, and how best to do it, great breakfast, fantastic dining recommendations. Really beautiful hotel, immaculately kept, peaceful, relaxing, homely, and wonderful spacious room. We will be back. Many thanks to all the staff. I cannot think of any faults at all.
This is a family run hotel, and their friendly and helpful approach towards us as guests made our stay a most enjoyable one. Excellent position and service.
Unlike most hotels the san gabriel has enormous charm, courtesy of its previous role as a private home, dating from the C17. The interior decor is quite remarkable. As well, the knowledge and courtesy of management was far above what one normally encounters in hotels.
The quaintness (is that a word?) really unique hotel The heating was only on for part of the day.. without exception this is the first hotel I've stayed at that was rather cold - the rads were only on from 6-10 and in the mornings, really needed them to be on all the time as it was frrrreeeeezing in Ronda!!
The room was large and absolutely delightful. I loved the decoration of the hotel, which was equal to its description on the web site. The hotel staff was very helpful, even asking us where we were going next and giving us directions to Cordoba and a map of that city.
Very friendly, at check out I even received a small bottle of the local wine.
Little hotel in the center of Ronda. Little rooms but comfortable and clean
Comfortable, clean and quiet room. Poor breakfast at the cafe where smoking was allowed. Parking quite far away from the hotel.
The location is very good. It is close to the bus station, train station and the old town. The room and the bathroom are clean. The girl at the reception can speak some English. I have to check out early in the morning so I asked her if there is somebody early in the morning. She said yes. But next morning when I came downstairs, there is nobody and the reception room is closed.
Very good location and very fair price. Triple room was very small. It is very difficult to move our lagage around. However, for what we paid, it is fair.
Nice staff,nice clean room.Excellent price.
Very kind receptionist guy!
The hotel was conveniently located in Ronda, just a few minutes walk from the breathtaking views of the gorge. The breakfast arrangement with a nearby cafe was quite good. The young staff were a pleasure to deal with. I would not think twice about staying there again, but for the pillows. The pillows were like sandbags, hard & unyielding.
cleanliness of room; location a fridge would be a welcome addition to the room facilities
Friendly staff noisy corridors as all bare marble floors
Nice room, nice hotel. Very basic but I don't usually spend too much time in my room other than for sleeping or on the computer. They have free Wi-Fi which was nice. Staff were all very friendly and helpful and spoke the basic english. This more of a booking issue, but I was searching for a hotel in Malaga. It gave me the choice of region. It doesn't seem to do that for any countries nearby, just Spain. So for my first night in Spain, I had to take a 3 hour bus ride to get to my hotel. Again, a booking issue. I also booked this place very last minute. Was actually a highlight of my trip to Spain being in Ronda. Things happen for a reason I guess. The breakfast was ok.
Close to centre of Ronda. Very pleasant room and hotel facilities. Bar also available
Fine location for sight seeing No hair dryer available, air condition need to be improved, breakfast was soso
1 Location 2 Hotel personnel very helpful 3 free off-street parking
Hotel was central, newly renovated and clean No hairdryer
The staff was nice and willing to help (I speak Spanish). The room was quiet. There was no desk in the room, but when I required a table it was brought at the end of the day. Unfortunately the room was a bit small with the table. Although I am not tall, I found the shower extremely narrow: a 6 feet tall person would definitely not have had enough space.
Very good hotel for the bargain price. Nice and clean room, centrally located. Friendly staff.
Room looked good and was very clean, staff were friendly, breakfast in the cafeteria with Spanish locals was good. First breakfast in separate room was very standard and limited.
Small but comfortable rooms. Noicy toaster and some other appliace in the breakfast room
for the price this hotel was exellent value .The room was clean and comfortable . Very good location .And the staff very helpful
Hotel staff were friendly, rooms clean and adequate for a short stay.
Stuff very friendly, all nice and clean, air-conditioning smooth and quiet - best nights sleep inhere! Great breafkfast too.
We were impressed with the service, cleanliness and location of the Hotel Royal in Ronda. It is ideally located and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It is also an excellent value for the price. I really cannot report anything that I did not like.
The location to the center of the town is excellent. The park across the street is great as you can take walks in the evening with an excellent view of the valley. The corridor of the hotel looks great, but once you get into your room, watch out! We have asked for a quiet room for our 5 night stay, but got this noisy & smelly deal. What I didn't like was the foul smell from the bathroom, which was more less like a sewer backed up. We had to leave the bathroom door closed at all times, as this was quite revolting. This hotel is recommended by Rick Steves in his book on Spain, but he obviously didn't stay in our room! Understandably, he cannot guarantee all his hotels that he recommends.
the locaton very near to the centre.
The location was central in Ronda The rooms had a smokey smell.
Great value! Good breakfast included in the price and the room was pleasant.
Central position near gorge. Easy to drop in with shopping.
its central location and value for money. poor sound insulation between rooms and corridor
Great location in Ronda Not impressed by breakfast buffet
Great value for money. Fab breakfast and loads of facilitis for chilling out.
A great breakfast, free drinks and a games room! Staff friendly and helpful. Not easy to find, at the bottom of a hill (130 steps to climb to go into town). Very noisey, walls paper thin...
A fun hotel, with many surprises and plenty of places to just enjoy 'being'. The free drinks policy added to the feeling of welcome, beyond its cash worth. We didn't like the ventilation system. We got too much 'bathroom' smell in the room, and faint cigarette smoke odours seemed to be carried on the centralised system. Our visit was in July and we woke in the night, too hot. It seems the hotel switched off the cooling system in the small hours. It seemed strange to give free drinks yet skimp on the airconditioning. Yet our overall experience of this hotel is still very positive.
I loved this hotel!! Among the 8 hotels I stayed at in Spain, this hotel was the most comfortable and the most impressive one for me. The location was good. The staffs were very friendly. The inside facilities were excellent, esp. the garden and the small library. When I go to Ronda again, I'll definitely stay at this hotel again. Not at all.
This hotel was wonderful--a highlight of our trip. The decor was fun and eclectic; the location great; the staff helpful. They were also so very generous--complimentary drinks including wine,sherry and beer. And the breakfast which also was complimentary was unbelievably generous and tasty. nothing -- a great place.
Everything. Great location, fabulous staff, wonderful amenities. This is a great, funky little hotel that I would receommend to everyone and would stay again in a heartbeat. We had a great room with a terrace and the hotel has open bar (help yourself 24/7) to drinks and coffee. The location couldn't be better and the staff was wonderful - they give each guest a tour of the hotel and you need one to find all the hidden treasures (like the stones in the aquarium you walk across to access the garden - very cool). Rooms large and comfortable!!!
We liked the pool, the friendly helpful staff, the quantness, the fantastic breakfast & the fact that all drinks are included. A little bit difficult to get to, although Ronda is not the easiest place to navigate in that part of the town.
great hotel, very very special hotel. Never have seen something like that!
The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff The decor and ambience is great One can self serve drinks The breakfast is fantastic NO
This is a quirky but magical hotel, with gardens leading from courtyard to balcony with lovely country views. Our room was imaginatively furnished and the bar/breakfast room is startling. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Friendly, Spanish hosts. Cute room.
nice rooms and facilities a bit noisy street and the breakfast quality should be improved
Well located for the tourist attractions. The cold shower. Don't stay here unless you like to start the day with a cold shower.
Very friendly staff. Cozy atmosphere. Nice breakfast. Not bad location. Elevator. No wi-fi. The room we got was in the attic, so we couldn't stand in most of the room's surface. We weren't informed ahead that this would be the situation.
Very beautiful room for a low price! In the centre of Ronda. It was a little hard to find a parking place - but we did this as well.
Clean hotel and friendly personnel with the best English language skills so far on our trip through Spain.
It was a quiet place. lack of parking room
Staff very nice and helpful, right in middle of city, easy walk for all tourist areas. We were kept awake all night with street revellers, and racing cars and bikes, up till 5.30am. But it was Saturday night, and hotel staff couldn´t really have done anything, although there was no hotel staff working after 11.pm
The rooms were clean and modern. It was not far to the centre of Ronda within easy walking distance. The breakfast room was a bit gloomy
Friendly staff, even let us choose between two rooms since we were with a child. Good location, walking distance from the old city.
