This was the first stay (2 nights) of our car tour of Andalucia. Having flown into Malaga, we had considered staying there, or Marbella, as we wanted to visit Gibraltar, but opted for this hotel in Ojen - and were delighted we did.

Other reviewers have described the village, its location and that of the hotel, so I won't repeat. Suffice to say that the hotel is lovely and we had a fine room with a large bathroom (one sink each!). Unfortunately, the boiler pump had broken down which meant that hot water was a long time getting through to the taps. As we arrived on a Sunday, no plumber was available until the following day. However, we were told about this problem by the friendly and helpful receptionist, received a written apology from the owner and ultimately were given a free bottle of wine, and, on leaving, a reduction in the room rate without asking. Every business encounters problems occasionally, and it's how they respond that counts - in this case, very well.

As we were leaving early both days, we didn't sample breakfast, so we can't comment on the food.

Rather than try to negotiate the very narrow streets to the hotel, we left our hire car in the large free car park at the bottom of the village, without any problems.

A relaxing and enjoyable short stay in a lovely hotel giving excellent service.

This hotel was the only option we could fine online that was right in Ojen. It was a good find. The hotel wasn't very full so we had the quaint courtyard to ourselves for reading and relaxing. The hotel is centrally located so we were able to walk everywhere. The staff spoke English and were able to give us recommendations on sights and places to eat. We chose a room without airconditioning so there was some noise in the evening with the window open. If you travel here in the hotter months of July or August you may want to consider getting a room with airconditioning.

Having just returned from a 2 week holiday in Spain with the memories of sun, sea, sand of the Costa del Sol and the beautiful mountains of Adalucia fading fast as I’m faced with a large heap of snail mail and lots of email messages mostly in Chinese. It’s very easy just to delete the message from the on-line booking web site asking me to write a review for my hotel stay and to be honest for most of the hotels we stayed in I did exactly that but the Hotel La Posada del Angel in Ojen is the one exception where it is worth taking time out to write a few lines to sing it’s praises.

We arrived at Malaga Airport and after hiring a car we eventually made it to the relative safety of the AP7 toll road after several near death experiences from driving on the right side of the road (or wrong side depending on how you look at it). Thirty minutes later we managed to negotiate the motorway turn off near Marbella and headed up into the hills along steep mountain roads with stunning views of the small white village of Ojen clinging to the hill side in the distance.

As you approach the village there is a very steep right hand turn at a mini roundabout which takes you down to the car park (free) at the bottom of the village. This is not sign posted (as far as I remember) so we continued on up the hill and came in at the top of the village and worked our way to the centre through narrow streets and lanes with hairpin bends which got tighter and tighter with the locals looking on with some amusement. After 10 minutes of driving the pristine new shiny hire car around in circles, (thinking perhaps I should have paid extra to waive the insurance excess?) we somehow found ourselves at the bottom of the village in the car park and decided to find the hotel on foot because we simply hadn’t got a clue of where we were going.

It was at this point that we started to follow the signs towards the hotel (I’m sure they weren’t there before) and after 2 minutes found ourselves standing in front of the Hotel La Posada del Angel.

The front of the hotel was freshly painted white with a picture of an angel just above the front door. There are 4 or 5 parking spaces outside the hotel and every where is spotlessly clean, no litter, no rubbish not even a cigarette end to be found. Very much like the rest of Ojen, the locals take a real pride in their village.

We went inside to the reception area which had antique wooden furniture in the Moorish style with angel pictures and angel ornaments absolutely everywhere. We were welcomed by Franck the hotel owner who after hearing my pathetic attempt to speak the local lingo replied in perfect English and checked us in. He also gave us some good advice about the bars and restaurants and pointed out a list on the wall of where and where not to eat. He also said the front door is usually locked at 10pm but you can get in using a door entry code. We told him that our suitcases were in the car at the bottom of the village and he offered to drive the car up to the hotel and bring the cases up to our room but we decide to be brave and do it ourselves.

Once again back into the narrow streets and this time we managed to drive up to the hotel with no problems. Franck showed us through the back of reception to an open courtyard with a Lemon tree and beautiful plants and flowers climbing up the walls. He explained that breakfast was usually served in the courtyard but as the weather was cold at the moment breakfast would be inside in the dining room. Cold?! It’s 23 degrees practically unheard of where we come from, so he said we could have breakfast outside if we wished.

The rooms and are reached by staircases going around the outside of the courtyard. There are no room numbers, each room has a picture of an angle hanging outside and the key fob has the corresponding picture. We were in “El Conductor” on the top floor. Some of the rooms have a small walled area in front with a table and chairs so you can sit outside, enjoy a bottle of wine and watch the Swallows perform their aerial acrobatics as they dive down into the courtyard below.

The room was quite large and once again was in the antique Moorish style with a tiled floor, a large double king sized bed and plenty of cupboard space. A good sized bathroom as well with 2 large wash basins, a bath with shower and a w/c in an alcove around the corner.

I cannot fault one thing about the room it was quiet, spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable and you woke up in the morning with the sun shining through the curtains really feeling as if you had had a good nights sleep ready for the day ahead, just what a holiday should be. The shower was powerful with plenty of hot water and the bath big enough to wallow in for hours.

So down for breakfast, served by Franck himself in the courtyard. To start freshly squeezed orange juice and a freshly made fruit salad followed by a large platter of cured meats (chorizo, ham etc.), cheese with succulent slices of thick juicy red Spanish Tomato not the greeny/red under ripe force grown greenhouse efforts you get in supermarkets but real tomatoes only available in the Mediterranean. Then a large plate of scrambled eggs and just when you think it’s all over hot rolls and croissants arrive with butter and jam. All washed down with a never ending supply of coffee or Hornimans Tea. Absolutely stuffed!

It’s also worth mentioning the there is free wireless internet available at the hotel. It didn’t quite reach our room on the top floor as the signal strength was low but I got into the habit of checking my email and planning the next day’s activities in the reception every evening over an ice cold glass of San Miguel. In fact having just checked my bill to see how much the beer was I notice I haven’t been charged for any drinks at all only the room is on the bill!

Over all we had an excellent stay and every detail was made perfect by Franck and his friendly staff. I wouldn’t just recommend this hotel I would say it is a “must visit” if you are planning a holiday to Andalucia or the Costa del Sol.

We stayed in the Posada del Angel for one night. The hotel is easy to find from the main village parking lot. As with many white villages the streets are steep, but this should not have to be a problem.

The hotel is charming with a different theme to every room. We had a drink on the quiet patio, strangely enough the staff did not know how much a glass of white wine costs. This was solved appropriately, though...

We felt welcome in the hotel and had a decent stay.

Ojen Spain (pronounced “O-hen”)
Found this on TripAdvisor and stayed at the La Posada del Angel hotel. Finding Ojen was pretty easy, finding the hotel a bit more difficult. You pretty much go through Ojen and just as you feel you’re leaving town there is a sharp right turn that goes down hill. Look for a small sigh that lists that hotel name. Keep following very small hotel signs and when you get to the last one there is a VERY small street with a sign that basically says do not enter except residents. If you have a small car you can make it up to the hotel (about 1 block). If not you’re going to have to park in the city parking lot about 3 blocks down the street and walk uphill with all of your luggage (NOT an easy task). Ojen is very steep! If you’re old or handicapped this is not a place for you! We found the hotel quite charming with a good breakfast in the morning. They even have wi-fi in the lobby though I could not get my corporate VPN to work through their wi-fi so I ended up connecting directly using the wire off the back of their hotel computer.
