We’ve written about as many of Ronda, and Andalucía’s hotels as we can, with more to follow, so that you can see which hotels are nearest to the sites you most want to see. In Ronda, we are often asked about hotels in the old town, or with views of the El Tajo gorge. In the Serranía we are often asked about the most peaceful hotels with the best walking or nature nearby. In other cities, visitors want to know which are the easiest to reach, with the best facilities. We also have some of the best hotels along the beaches of the Costa del Sol.

Hotel Aire de Ronda **

The Aire De Ronda is located in the popular and historic Padre Jesus district of Ronda, and is only a short walk to the Puente Arabe and Arab Baths.

All rooms are decorated individually and with elegance in mind, and are all equipped with air-conditioning, Wi-Fi internet access, en suite bathroom, bathrobes, and comfortable furnishings.

An interior courtyard and garden in the hotel provides a great place for guests to relax.
