6/11 Lee and I had a short visit in Gibraltar before catching the 2:15pm bus from La Linea (just across the border in Spain) to Ronda. Ronda is one of the most famous of the Spanish white towns or pueblos blancos. We had an uneventful bus trip to San Pedro where we transferred busses. I´ve noticed the bus staff is often not helpful. They are fine …
... feet as they changed the tempo of the dance throughout, from slow to fast, to faster than you've seen anyone take steps, and to the rhythm as well. The ladies danced so vigorously their hair combs fell out on stage, not once, not twice, but three different times from different ladies. Their long ruffled skirts that kissed the ground were thrown about and rapid steps were taken underneath with confidence. These were masters at work and I was in the front row! ...
The plan was to have a nice visit, head back to the hotel for a little siesta, then hit another site late afternoon. Instead, we ended up staying at the Alcázar all day. It was both huge and incredibly interesting (we splurged and shared and audio guide). We wandered the palaces, walked through the giant, sprawling gardens and Andrew took tons of pictures. After spending tons of time hanging out to get a shot that he wanted without a billion ...
... palace over the Roman one, in a style similar to la Alhambra (the two were friends). When the Christians took over Cordoba, they continued adding on to the Palace in the same style, but without the same meaning. Where arabic poetry decorates the walls of La Alhambra, La Real Alcázar has meaningless scribbles. But it was still beautiful, of course. The second level is divided into private apartments for the visiting Bourbons, so we couldn't see those.
... for what is ahead to learn about Spain, Spanish, Art, and hopefully myself.
The classes themselves seem very different and interesting. I was surprised to hear about their attendance policy. In each of my classes they only allow three absences and from there, half a grade or a whole grade level will be deducted, given that their grade scale goes from 1 to 10 instead of A-F. I would have expected more leeway for travel and other activities, but they do ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hospes Las Casas del Rey de Baeza Sevilla Seville
Fabulous hotel, highly recommend it!
It was a great hotel, small, intimate, spotlessly clean with great interior design. The staff were friendly & helpful & the location was great, although not so easy to find in the maze of Spanish streets. Quality, service & value all make it a wonderful place to stay. It was the nicest place on our trip.
I stayed here for one night in late August 2004 on a quick trip through southern Spain. The hotel is in a good location, very quiet, very clean, comfortable room, but minimal light and very dark; just 3 lamps to light the room. Was rather like being in a dark UK basement flat! Furnishings were very neat, modern, clean and simple.
This hotel is on the edge of everything that is happening in Seville (short leisurely walk) with the added bonus of less noise disturbances at night. This area feels as safe as any I've felt safe in on my travels. So that's the location dealt with.
Stayed here for two nights in July 2002. It was exquisite! It was on par with 4 star hotels I've stayed at all over the world, and very reasonably priced considering it. The pool area was small but quiet and relaxing, the rooms were modern and beautiful, the common areas were the same. Located in a quiet neighborhood, but in walking distance of the main sights. I have since stayed in many hotels around the world and have wished I could take it with me everywhere I go. I would definitely go back.
The hotel has a low-key elegance to it and is designed and planted in a beautiful and stylish way. However, when staying in my smallish, plain and dark (albeit very clean) room it did not feel like a 4-star hotel any more. Besides, the hotel is tucked away in an area of crooked alleys and therefore difficult to find.
Excellent Hotel, Wonderful Staff
We just stayed at this wonderful hotel for 2 nights. The staff are fantastic - they made us feel very welcome and went far above and beyond what was required. The hotel itself is lovely. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are roomy and modern. Location is great - not right in the middle of things, but within easy walking distance. I highly recommend this hotel.
OK - Dark room - no central lighting and no Bose hi-fi
stayed here Jan03 - read these reviews - thought £100 a night off peak a little pricy but a special treat for my partner and I. Am dissapointed with the expectations built up - no central light in room just three lamps and very, very small window so no natural light coming in. Air-con didnt cool the room down. The Hotel is very clean and in a good state of repair - just expected a cheerful room - with the small window and dim lighting it felt like being in a cellar/basement. It is room 23 if that helps.
A charming little hotel, you feel almost as if you're staying in a wealthy friend's home: the furnishings in the rooms are lovely and well-chosen, with very comfortable beds, plush white linens, and Bose sound systems, the marble bathroom in our room was opulent, and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The restaurant has inventive, fresh, and well-prepared cuisine. My husband and I stayed here for three nights last October, and we couldn't have asked for a nicer hotel. Walkable to everything, but tucked back on a quiet little street, I would highly recommend staying here.
Fabulous location; top notch staff
My partner and I just returned from a 4-night stay. We were very happy that we found this hotel. The hotel's location is terrific, located next to a small church and just a 5 minute walk down some beautiful, narrow streets to the Barrio Santa Cruz. We paid for a standard double (EU127). We were given room 35, directly overlooking the Plaza where the hotel is located. The room was huge, with beautiful wood floors, sitting area, a wonderful bed, CD/DVD and a large flat-screen TV. The staff, though, was where the hotel really blew us away. We just loved them. I can't put it any more succinctly than that. We couldn't possibly have been more satisfied.
Spent 4 nights here and found it to be charming, excellent location (walk to Cathedral, Alcazar). The restaurant which is new is so good that we ate there every night--modern Spanish cuisine, a good change from the traditional. Breakfast is a nice cold buffet, but also you can have eggs etc. for 12 euros. Rooms are small, minimally furnished. Some open to the courtyard and do not have much light. Staff is very helpful and courteous.
