Hotel Don Miguel, Ronda

Hotel Don Miguel, Ronda ***

Situated directly next to Ronda’s Puente Nuevo, the Hotel Don Miguel has an enviable position as the queen of the tajo, with her terrace bar below the level of the bridge, and guest rooms that directly overlook the bridge and the rocky gorge below. The Don Miguel is one of hanging houses of Ronda, and from the other side the terraces seem to be precariously perched ready to fall, in fact they are perfectly safe, and the views are spectacular.

This is a three star hotel, which is refreshing to find in such a prime position, and whilst the hotel rooms are often booked months in advance for annual fiestas and long weekends, this shouldn’t deter new visitors to Ronda making a reservation or booking enquiry, the views alone add value for money.

Guests in the Hotel Don Miguel will find a comfortable hotel with pleasant staff, though rooms are simply decorated. All rooms are completed with television, phone, air-conditioning, and private bathroom with hair dryer. The hotel restaurant is popular with guests and Rondeños alike, and not just for the views, the menu offers traditional Andalusian and Ronda dishes from local meats, to traditional seafood, and seasonal items such as gazpacho.

The highlight of staying at the Don Miguel will naturally be the views of the new bridge and gorge, and from the hotel’s terrace it is also possible to see the Puente Romano, though this location is also central to Ronda’s other main attractions. The bullring, Arab Baths, Mondragon Palace, Lara Museum and more are all less than 300 metres away.
