Ronda is a delightful little city with many excellent hotels, and is home to Spain’s most photographed bridge, the oldest and most prestigious bullring, and was one of the last Moorish cities to fall in the Spanish reconquest. We recommend at least two nights/two days in Ronda to really see the city and enjoy what Ronda has to offer, though extending this for a few days makes for an excellent break, and means you won’t be rushed.
There are nearly 80 hotels reviewed personally by us here at Ronda Today. 5 hotels to each page page with links to booking and reserving your room. remember that you can book safely through our partner booking.com and the main link for all Ronda hotels is at the right hand side.

There are many hotels in Ronda, and several of these are quite superb hotels, but quite a few of the people who visit Ronda have a particular desire to stay in the old town with its history and romantic stories.

Ronda’s old town extends from the Puente Nuevo along Calle Armiñan until the old walls and Almocabar Gate, and down as far as the Arab Baths, so we have included the Hotel Alavera de los Baños even though other travel guides might consider it outside the old town.
