Hotel Rural Zuhayra
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Zuheros
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 May 2012

The bad:

-no view from our prison cell ... oops sorry, from our room (facing a white wall)



The very bad:

-noisy street and opposite a noisy ground where kids could shout



The worst:

-disgusting bed and pillows with no case, dirty towels and bathroom

-very poor soundproof – we heard our neighbors talking, peeing and more …



Conclusion:

Zuheros is for sure a very pleasant and beautiful village but run out of this place if you can … A shame for such a nice village to offer such a vile place.

A perfect hotel for a week's walking holiday. The hotel only has a 2-star rating, but the food is 5-stars ! All the comforts necessary for a walking holiday with lovely packed lunches and in a most beautiful setting.

My husband and I only had one regret about the Hotel Zuhayra which was the fact that we only stayed one night. The hotel is situated in the centre of the beautiful, small village of Zuheros which I highly recommend. We had spent the previous night in Cordoba and prior to that, two nights in Ronda (I will review the hotels seperately but all were excellent and chosen from other reviews on Trip Advisor). I hadn't found many reviews on the Hotel Zuhayra but as there are only two in or near Zuheros (The other is located on the outskirts of the village) we chose Zuhayra as we wanted to be right in the village.

I recevied prompt response to my email inquiries and they did not ask for a credit card. Parking is on the street anywhere near the hotel. We were there at a fairly quiet time so for us this was not a problem. Check in was easy and as I wanted to practice my Spanish can't say exactly how much English the front desk person spoke. I will say though he was exceptionally polite, friendly and patient with me as I stumbled along in my best Spanish!. He took the time to show us the book they keep at the front desk. This shows all the activities and things to do in the area. It also has a section that describes the walks and hikes that can be taken right from the hotel. It describes the type of terrain and level of difficulty as well as the distance. Zuheros is great for anyone wanting to spend a couple of days biking or walking. The Via Verde is within walking distance and offers a fabulous trail for either running, walking of biking. Zuheros as I mentioned is a very small, white village. If you are looking to be entertained with energetic nightlife, this may not be for you. If you want to relax, walk or use it as a base to explore then it's perfect. There are about three bars/restaurants in town and the hotel offers a really nice outside patio area for dinner. Sadly, with only one night we chose to ate at one of bars/restuarants that was recommended by a local earlier that day. We had a fabulous experience and again I will review that place seperatley. The menu at the hotel though looked great and we wished we had booked for two nights so we could have tried thier food. We found all the locals so friendly although my Spanish is good enough for us to get by so this probably help.

The room at the hotel had a spectacular view over the mountains and olive trees. It was exceptionally clean and the air conditioning worked well. We had two single beds although I am sure we could have got a double if I had thought to ask for it. I didn't and for one night we didn't care about two beds. There is free wifi in the room (never used it so can't comment on it's speed) as well as a small modern television (again we never watched it). Breakfast was included and although basic was more than adequate, served buffet style (coffee, juice, fruit, cheese and meat, buns or toast, cereal). Check out was a breeze and as mentioned, we wished we had had more time. Would highly recommend!!!

Stayed here for a week while on a guided walking holiday ( party of 22).
Large comfortable, clean room with cool tiled floor and plenty of storage.
Hot water was plentiful even when everyone was showering after the walks.
Very large bar/cafetiere area, small outside terrace without views but plenty of options nearby in the village itself
Good food , basic breakfast but the breakfast coffee was surprisingly good.
Staff very helpful.
Drinks cheap.
Free WiFi in most parts of the hotel

We had a lovely 2 night stay here - A simple rural hotel in a hilltop village. The rooms were adequate and good value, staff pleasant and helpful. I also enjoyed the restaurant which served plain dishes cooked well. Breakfast was adequate. Parking was easy enough for a hilltop town (but then again it was off season).
Nearby attractions include a small museum and clifftop castle within 2 minutes of the hotel, a bat cave with prehistoric drawings (a few kilometres out of town) and the most incredible views. There is also a rural cycleway at the bottom of the hill and the hotel hires out (adult) bikes

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night on our cycling trip through Andalusia, the room was basic, traditional Spanish style. White washed walls, wooden furniture. The room smelt slightly of sewerage (or something not too pleasant), that was probably the worst part of the stay, the bathroom was almost quite clean, although there were 3 hairs in the bathtub (the most of any hotel on our trip through Spain), but as I've said before, that's to be expected in rural villages & small hotels...
The view from the room was amazing & the town itself was great. There are plenty of things to do around the village, walking, cycling, eating great olives & cheeses. A really nice toen to visit.
We were looking for rustic Andalusia on this trip & we found it...
