We're so glad we found this little gem in the white village Jimena de la Frontera! After a scary snake incident in our rural cottage just on the outskirts of the village, we decided to leave and find alternative accommodation. Hostal El Anon turned our holiday into something very special. It is situated in the center of the village with tapas bars and restaurants in walking distance and has a small pool on the top terrace looking out over the quirky streets and the beautiful countryside. It is ideal for couples and families alike. Breakfast is served outside on another of the many terraces with beautiful gardens. It really is a hidden gem.

Eight of us from our Spanish language class had a field trip in Jimena de la Frontera and went to the Hostel el Anon for our lunch.

The welcome was extremely friendly and the ambience of the bar area was also extremely welcoming. On a very hot June day the interior was lovely and cool and the terrace areas also gave a lovely respite from the heat. After eating we were able to go on the roof terrace to get a bit more sun, whilst people used the swimming pool to cool down a little.

The lunch was very good indeed. The menu was extremely varied and offered some traditional Spanish dishes as well as a Cottage Pie if you were so inclined - none of our group were.

A shared mixed salad was the starter, together with lovely home made liver pate on home made bread. I had the salmon fillet in an orange sauce, which was lovely and others in our group had the roast quail, venison, pork, chicken tagine and more. All of us were unanimous that the food was excellent.

A couple of bottles of house wine and the odd beer rounded everything off for about twenty something euro's a head.

A really enjoyable day out!! Would certainly recommend an overnight stay here.

A quaint homely comfortable hotel with a great atmosphere. Situated on a steep street with lots of stairs to get about in the hotel so you need to be reasonably fit to enjoy this hotel. Rooms basic but comfortable and clean. Good continental breakfast served on a lovely terrace which is lively bar area in the evenings. One of the best restaurants in Jimeno. Beautiful gardens and a rooftop pool make the el Anon a great little hotel.

My husband and I spent 2 nights here in a small, cold and sparsely decorated room off the outside dining area. The room was clean but dark with small windows but the double bed was comfortable and there was hanging space for clothes. A small shower-room was adjacent through a partition wall. There was no tea or coffee making facilities.
The restaurant is quite popular and quaint looks nice in the evening with candles but the food very mediocre. My husband ordered spaghetti bolognaise and he was given just spaghetti with tomatoes source as they said they had run out of meat!
They do have a roof pool but it was too cold for us to use.

Unusual, quaint, friendly. If you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary, this place fits the bill. We had an excellent meal there.

A bit tatty in places but what an lovely place with its roof pool and terraces all over the place. Little cubby holes and nice rooms, resturannt good as well.

Go straight down the hill from Anon turn left down hill again and turn right past the small bar and there is a resturant there. Have the swordfish and meausre the steak it will be at least 15 inches wide.
