We booked at short notice, when most places were full, for a one-night stay. I do not admire lush hotels, so was very pleased with the low-key style. Only the cleaner was there to receive us, which she did efficiently and helpfully. It is a miniature conversion of an ancient house and the buildings around a little courtyard, with a small and very cool pool, precious even in early October. Though late in the season the paintwork was immaculate, the room clean, the small but adequate kitchen unit just like new.
Outside crowds blundered around this, the oldest part of the town; inside only occasional church bells could be heard.
Breakfast was only available at the related restaurant a few minutes' walk away in the main town, and would be best negotiated by Spanish speakers. The menu is totally local, so if this is a big part of your routine it may be best to go to another of the many restaurants in town.
This was our second visit to Ronda (by train from Malaga - do try it!) and we reckon discovering the apartamentos is a real bonus. It is not just in the best area for sightseeing, it is a sight in itself. On the other hand if you want people to be on hand to offer services and provide meals, an hotel would be better. We walked from the station, about 1.5 km, which is fine if you take your time. Ideal for independent travellers.
