I didn´t want to write about this hotel because I was afraid that it will be overbooked next time I want to visit!!!
All dues to the staff and management of Hotel San Gabriel. Not only is it a tranquil and elegant hotel, it has a special "Character".
As other reviewers will tell you, it is central to the "new town" but situated in the "old part" across the "New Bridge".
It is a traditional old house (read mansion) with the modern touches (free internet access with wi-fi, in room CD/DVD players etc...) that you expect from a 4 star hotel.
Old books line the walls and adorn the tabletops (there are many books, walls and tables...).
There is also a quaint private cinema for those who enjoy movies that were made in the times that movie were great (Casablanca, Vertigo etc...).
This hotel can be considered the perfect place to relax and enjoy the wonderful mountain town of Ronda.
The rooms are clean, spacious and well kept. There is FREE, yes "FREE!" parking nearby the hotel and the informative staff will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.
The price of the rooms are very under-priced. Do yourself a favour and stay at this hotel, you will enjoy the "time warp" and "elegance" that it has to offer.
We have stayed at four different hotels in Ronda in the past, and by far the best is San Gabriel.
The reviews on Trip Advisor led us to the San Gabriel, and we are returning the favour. Enjoy it, maybe, like us, you will a certain sadness when you leave.....
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This carefully restored building dates from the 18th century and lies in the most historic district of Ronda, surrounded by ancient monuments.Retaining much of its original charm, the San Gabriel still displays an attractive stone façade and the coat of arms of one of its former owners. Spend a quiet moment in the library corner or in the typically Andalusian courtyard, full of plants and a trickling fountain. Here you can start the day with the hotel’s delicious breakfast. You can also enjoy a film in the intimate cinema room, which includes red velvet seats taken from the city’s old cinema. Combined with its privileged location, the hotel facilities make this a truly authentic Spanish setting for your holiday in rural Andalusia. ... more less
