Hotel La Ciudad
Ranked #15 of 24 Ronda B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 October 2016

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.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed quiet and convenient.

Stayed with group as regular hotel booked. Girl arrived late to let us in & no one on site (no room for our guide) when we had no electricity & shower flooded bathroom. Guy came & fixed it but wasted whole afternoon. No water in bidet. A few blocks from town so thought would be quiet on Fri nite but someone had party nearby til 2am. Had to walk a good 10 mins in the dark at 7 am for "included" breakfast. Good coffee but had to ask for egg & orange as otherwise was just bread. 3 keys & everyone had problems with them. Little pool, big room, nice deck & interesting old house but would not stay there again.
Ronda can be done in 1 hour with a few pics of the gorge. Would have preferred another day in Granada. Also cold!

The hotel La Ciudad is located on a small square of the old city of Ronda. It is an ancient typical house which has been renovated and the rooms are very confortable. Breakfast is offered in a joint hotel located at 800 meters from La Ciudad. Top accommodation.

Beautiful old building right in old town but extremely peaceful and relaxing. There is a small pool and room to sunbathe which is a welcome break from sightseeing. The rooms are large and comfortable with cooking facilities and dining table. The staff are helpful and charming but La Ciudad is not really a hotel as, apart from cleaning the rooms daily, no other services are available and there are no staff permanently on site. However this really was not a negative. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would love to return

We stayed at Hotel la Ciudad for an overnight trip to Ronda. It's a lovely old building in the centre of the old town just off a plaza - a little tricky to access by car as the street is extremely narrow but doable if you're not in a big 4x4 and you breathe-in! Room was charming - more of a 'bed-sit' with sofa, microwave, fridge, sink etc so self catering's an option. Nice little balcony with charming views overlooking old, tiled roofs and the church. Small pool, and courtyard with sun chairs. Not staffed all the time but information on access to staff outside hours available. Breakfast off-site in sister hotel. Great hotel for a real feel of Ronda.
