Despite mixed reviews from this site, we went ahead and booked a room for our family of 5 at this small hotel for one night en route to Ronda. It is located in a small street, wouldn't have known there was a hotel if not for the sign. To be honest I was a bit apprehensive because our communications prior to arrival via the email was a little hit and miss. The owners are not very fluent in English and I suspect they use Google translate for their communications. Gave a credit card for the booking. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to be greeted by friendly staff who helped to unload our luggages from the car and he went on to help with parking at a nearby garage. The owner, Julia checked us in. Our room is located on the ground floor and right at the front. Pretty small and just enough room to accommodate all of us plus 4 pieces of luggage. There were 2 bathrooms relatively big with showers. The television is mounted overhead as there is no room anywhere else. We were served breakfast at a dining area upstairs because it was the only area big enough to accommodate our family although we could sit at one of the sitting areas in the patios downstairs but it was taken by another group. We were showed around the hotel by Julia and I noticed that the paintings that decorated the hotel walls has her signature and I asked about them. She said that she and her cousin painted most of the paintings that hang on the walls in some of the rooms and around the hotel. She even showed us other guest rooms (which were not occupied) and said that each of them are decorated differently.
I guess for one night and for the price we paid, my family was pretty satisfied with what we got. We liked that the hotel was pleasantly decorated. My initial apprehension was unfounded as I found that Julia could speak pretty decent conversational English.
