“Delightful Boutique Hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

As other reviews have indicated this hotel has just about everything. Great location - steps from the famous bridge. Ambience - the hotel is located in an historical building that is beautifully furnished with antiques. Comfortable,spacious rooms. There is even a small theatre which shows videos. There is safe parking a five minute walk away. The front desk is friendly and helpful. Wi fi is free and the room rates are reasonable.

This hotel, in a large old house, has a beautiful old interior with a wooden galleried staircase, old furniture and paintings. The armosphere was cosy and 'home like'. There were rave reviews about the breakfast here but we found it rather ordinary and not as expected with only a limited spread and canned fruit rather than fresh fruit
Wifi service was poor and wouldn't connect properly a lot of the time and I couldn't connect in the room although I was informed that I would be able to.
The room was quite nice although the bathroom didn't really have space to put things (ie shelves etc). But on the whole the hotel has a lovely atmosphere with very nice staff and the location is excellent.

This small hotel is quite wonderful. Every nook and cranny reflects its warmth and personality. The staff is delightful and most helpful. We loved staying at the San Gabriel. It is a place of character--each room has its own personality. We had two rooms and each was quite different and yet served our needs very well. It is a very clean establishment and offers a nice breakfast for a very fair price. It is a little tricky to find in an auto but we were up to the challenge. If you love a quaint hotel with plenty of charm and a homey feeling--this is the place for you! We did and will certainly stay there again if we are ever fortunate enough to return to Ronda.

Room Tip: We had superior rooms and they were quite large--I am not sure about the standard rooms but don'...

We only stayed here one night and wished it had been longer. What a great hotel! We had a lovely room that was large and exceptionally clean. The common areas were comfortable and very nicely decorated and we really liked the quirky screening room where you're able to watch the DVDs they have in stock. Definitely take advantage of the bodega in the basement where you can sample a complimentary glass of wine or sherry. The breakfast was a good deal too. I have to say that I particularly liked that the hotel was just off the main road, away from any car traffic, making it a perfect place for a quiet night's sleep. Can't wait to come back to this warm and welcoming hotel.

Room Tip: We were in Room 9 and it was great for our family. It faced an interior courtyard and thus was very...

As part of cycling tour we spent 3 nights in this wonderful Hotel. Situated very close to the New Bridge and Gorge it's in a quiet side street. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. What made it special was the nature of the building and rooms, no mass produced concrete building but a fascinating structure with inner courtyard eclectic library / lounge and small but adequate breakfast area.

Top value for the money, really. Great boutique hotel. Interior and rooms are superbly charming and the rate was so reasonable at 95 Euros a night for a very spacious junior suite. Breakfast was included, but parking was extra at a nearby public lot that has special rates for the hotel. It is a bit tucked away in Ronda, but a very short walking distance to the bridge and all the sites. Any way Ronda is very small so everything is accessible on foot. Hotel provides good recommendations for restaurants. Both my wife and I loved this hotel. We picked it based on tripadvisor reviews, and it exceeded our expectations.

Room Tip: We stayed in the junior suite, top floor, which was superb. Highly recommend it.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of an 8 night holiday touring Andalucia. Although you don't get the views of the bridge and scenery that you can get from other larger hotels, it is a very pretty hotel, with lots of history, tucked away from the bustle of Ronda. Just a couple of minutes walk from the bridge and town centre. All staff very welcoming and helpful, and our room extremely comfortable and warm (most welcome during an otherwise cold stay in Spain) at a very reasonable rate, with adequate buffet breakfast included. We thoroughly recommend staying here, and also recommend a visit to the stunning town of Ronda. Definitely to be revisited - hotel and town!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 3 which had large double windows looking onto a small but very pretty 'pluvium...
