In this lovely city, dominated by the breathtaking Tajo Gorge, this Ronda hotel with its unique location and panoramic views offers classical, exquisite comfort. On the eastern periphery of town, this country-style hotel dates from 1906, when it was built by an Englishman in honour of his recently departed monarch, Queen Victoria.
Located not far from the famous Maestranza bullring, this hotel was the place to stay in Ronda and has accommodated many prestigious guests in it´s long history. Ernest Hemingway frequently visited, but this Ronda hotel is probably best known as the place where poet Rainer Maria Rilke wrote The Spanish Trilogy. He lodged there for several months, inspired while walking the gardens and contemplating the precious sunsets. His room is conserved as a museum with first editions, manuscripts, photographs, and even a framed copy of his hotel bill. A life-size bronze statue of him stands in a corner of the garden.
Other important guests including bullfighters, actors, politicians, writers, etc, are found among its clientele. The bedrooms are spacious and airy, some with living rooms and many with private terraces. The beds are sumptuous, and the bathrooms feature bath with shower.
Hotel facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, restaurant, bar and private guest parking.

Ronda is one of Andalusia's most beautiful towns, steeped in history. It stands on a towering plateau in the mountains of the Malaga Province, and is famous throughout Spain for the deep river gorge which divides the medieval town from the 18th century town. This gorge is known as "El Tajo" and is spanned by a stone bridge, which once housed a prison. Visitors love to peer down into the gorge, to see the waters of the River Guadalevin.
Ronda is also famous for its Maestranza bullring, the oldest, and the most beautiful in Spain; the arena itself is also the country's largest. When there are no fights, the bullring is open to visitors, and has a fascinating museum with many mementos of Spain's most renowned bullfighters.
Ronda is located 50 km – 1 hour's drive - from San Pedro de Alcantara on the Coast. The road winds up through the mountains of the Sierra Bermeja, and then descends into the Serrania de Ronda and the town itself. One of the most charming and fascinating towns in Andalusia, it is very popular with day-trippers from the Costa del Sol, and has a wide range of cafes, shops, restaurants and bars. However, it retains all of its traditional charm and languid atmosphere.
