Great little hotel. Clean rooms, very friendly staff. Most of the sights are an easy walk from the hotel. Perfect for a few days in Ronda!

Oil paintings, bronze sculptures, antique furniture and lighted display cabinets adorn this lovely space. We feel very lucky to have these rooms. So for three days, we will live the life of luxury. Tuesday, we toured Ronda, including the Ronda Bullring. I have mixed feelings ...
The original plan had been Seville to Cordoba, but Cordoba lost out to Jerez De La Frontier and Ronda.....especially Ronda. It appears that Orson Welles and Ernest Hemingway (For Whom The Bell Tolls) were also seduced by this city.
