“Amazing staff and relaxing hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014 via mobile

Very pleased with my 3 night stay here. Good service, good food and a lovely addition to have an honesty bar at night when the staff finished. Nice to be able to come back at siesta time and sit on the veranda with the snacks provided for a little extra cost! Any questions we had, the staff were most helpful! Especially on the last morning, we were due to leave before breakfast so the kitchen prepared a lovely picnic for us to take away with us for our trip home!

Very nice rooms & relaxing ambience all round!

We stayed for one night last week at Alavera de los banos. The hotel was a little tricky to find- ( do not use booking.com address) but well worth seeking out. Set at the base of the ancient city walls, by the Arab baths and surrounded by countryside, the hotel is an Oasis within 5 minutes walk of all the main sites of Ronda. Beautifully decorated and managed by very pleasant and helpful people, Los banos may have few stars officially but provides a genuinely luxurious experience. The common area is very relaxed and has an honesty bar out of hours. Breakfast was beautiful. Fresh and individually made breakfasts far exceeded any other we had in Andalucia and rounded off the stay perfectly.
The country inn next door ( recommended by the hotel) is also worth a visit for rustic andalucian food and an entertaining local landlord.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This hotel exceeded my expectations. The hotel is in a quiet location away from the hustle of the town but within walking distance of everything. Everyone was friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We weird served a full breakfast every morning which was delicious. Definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely return.

Room Tip: Every room is different. Any of the rooms would be great!

A piece of peace and glorious setting, we really enjoyed our stayed. Facilities were excellent,our hosts charming and friendly. Breakfast was to die for. It has its own lovingly created garden. The lobby and the sitting area were wonderful. Alavera de los Banos offers seclusion and only ten minutes walking from the historic city centre. We definetely stay again if were back in Ronda.

The hotel is tucked away below the old city, next to the Arab baths. From the windows of my bedroom, and from the secluded little patio outside to the side of the pool, I could see horses grazing nearby. Very calm and peaceful. There was also a nice common area, with couches and chairs and books (and interesting guests). The owners were lovely and helpful, and I liked the concept of the "honesty bar" in the evenings. Also, the included "continental plus" breakfast was delicious (bread that I think was homemade!, along with cheese, ham, fruit, juice, coffee...) The room, on the second floor, was good sized with two twin beds even though I was a solo traveler, and would have been fine for two people. The bathroom was a little small, as others have noted. It was cool weather when I was there, so there was no need for air conditioning. Not a "budget" hotel, but a great respite during a busy trip to Spain!

We loved our stay at Alavera de los Banos and would stay again if were back in Ronda. The hotel is tucked away where the river exits the gorge and for us the location was great because it's on a very quiet road but is just a short (albeit steep) walk to the centre of town.The building is adjacent to the Arab Baths (well worth a visit) and has all the same charm.
As the weather was still warm, the very nice breakfast was served on the terrace which is lovely, overlooking some horse gallops and a small valley. We opted to upgrade to one of the rooms with its own terrace and enjoyed a couple of pre-dinner 'snifters' on it. The hotel runs an honesty bar, so although small, the bar is effectively always open! The bed was very comfortable and wi-fi worked well in our room - good enough to Skype home.
The room itself was comfortable and clean. As some reviewers have noted the en-suite bathrooms are small but that they were able to fit them into an old building was an achievement. Christian and his team were all very pleasant and helpful.

Room Tip: Pay the small upgrade for a room with a private terrace. If the weather is nice its a great place to...

We are so glad we found this listing in the internet. The lodging has great atmosphere. Beautifully decorated. Acess to and from the old town is by a series of steps but not a difficult climb. Breakfast is served in the main room or in the garden area and it is excellent, including fresh juice, fruits and home made breads. Beautiful mini garden areas with soothing waterfall and a small pool are perfect to relax after a day of hiking aroung town. The owners and rest of the staff are very friendly and helpful. We would definetly stay there again.
