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 …
... because Amanda’s friend had mentioned they went
to an outdoor bar in the area. After wandering in a dark park for a while we
gave up and took a taxi. It was actually way father then we thought so it was
good we took a taxi. The club was awesome- so much fun. We were initially
shocked by the 29 euro drink bill but then it got better when we got 2 euro
chupitos. We got there around 12:30 and it was absolutely dead… it is hard to
understand sometimes how ...
... and refreshing. Ken looked across the table at me and said, "This is what I envisioned Spain to be...enjoying a drink at a cafe table in the warm sun in a picturesque plaza with the scent of orange blossoms in the air and the view of some spectacular sight as the backdrop". Really, who could ask for more?!
After lunch, we again walked a block to reach the cathedral. The line was long, but we didn't mind much waiting in ...
... the road in a few minutes.
Not to be! The exit sign pointed to Lepe, so off we headed--in the wrong direction. To make short my description of an hour’s diversion, we finally found a gas station in Lepe after criss-crossing the town’s one-way streets and impossible turn lanes, discovering that neither Around Me nor Google Maps know where gas stations are located in the Spanish countryside. By Marcela’s asking some people, we finally found ...
... any old one at this stage. A very cool thing (cool being the operative word) is that above many of the bars and cafes there are misting sprays. Having chosen where we will eat, we sit and find the misting happens for 5 seconds, every 15 seconds. The mist is so fine that it is in no way intrusive and while it is definitely cooling, it is not wetting, its actually bliss!
We order two beers, and five tapas for 10 euros, bread is also bought to the table, and ...

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.
