“OK, but don't expect too much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2007

Me and my wife spent one night at Hotel El Tajo. The hotel is located in the "new" part of Ronda, in a quite anonymous street, but just around the corner of the main shopping street. In any case, all the most important places to see are easily reachable on foot in just a few minutes.
The pros:
•The staff is extremely kind and friendly. Mrs. Carmen (apparently one of the hotel's owners) is married with an Italian guy and reserved us a very warm welcome, providing us all the necessary indications to visit the town and the surroundings
•The hotel has its own indoor parking lot, featuring some 10-15 places: this seems to be a plus, as the streets around were always overcrowded during our stay, and the other public parking in the Plaza del Socorro and close to the Plaza de Toros were full since early morning.
• At the time of reservation (I contacted directly the hotel via e-mail), the rate was cheaper than other Ronda's three star hotels
The cons:
• The hotel's external appearance is not particularly attractive, and the rooms are quite basic (though clean). The room's furniture seems quite old and tired (though this may add "character" to the hotel, if you like it), as well as the air conditioner.
• Our room faced the main road and the noise during the day and night might be annoying if you are used to sleep in complete silence.
All in all, I would better rate this hotel as a decent two-stars instead of a three-stars.

  • Liked — The friendliness of the staff
  • Disliked — The room's furniture
  • Stayed August 2007, travelled as a couple

Excellent value, good standard accommodation, with its own parking which was a necessary bonus. Great location, easy to walk around the shops, restuarants and sights very nearby. Hotel difficult to approach by car, due to one-way system (just keep trying!) Drive up to garage door and hoot as CCTV system at reception means they will open doors.

  • Liked — central location
  • Disliked — difficulty in negotiating one-way traffic
  • Tips/Secrets — book parking in advance, its worth the money
  • Stayed September 2006, travelled with family

Centrally situated hotel. The arena, shops and restaurants are within a short walk. Difficult to find by car because of all the one way streets. The entrance is dark and small. The rooms are clean and the reception is friendly. Nice hotel to visit Ronda.
