Room with a View at Hotel Don Miguel, Ronda

Arriving in Ronda was an adventure in itself, but the views from our hotel were something that’s hard to forget.

Here is a short review of my stay in Hotel Don Miguel, in the middle of this summer.

The hotel is a family business run by a local family in Ronda. Located in what looks like an old family home, which has expanded to a few neighbouring buildings that all offer accommodation to guests.

There are lots of accommodation options in Ronda and this place caught my eye not just because of the location, but also amazing value for money.

The Location

Hotel Don Miguel sits at the edge of the cliff right at the end of Puente Nuevo, the most famous bridge in Ronda.

From the hotel, you are a short walk away from all the main sights in town and also very close to the Plaza del Toros.

Opposite the hotel is a pharmacy, a few souvenir shops, and just around the corner one of the best restaurants I have visited during my stay.

If you arrive by bus, it’s only about 10 minute walk to get to the hotel, or a very short taxi journey.

The Restaurant

The hotel has an option for accommodation with breakfast.

I only had breakfast in the hotel once, as I prefer to eat in the local restaurants.

I’m not sure if this was an exceptional time (a lot of covid restrictions were still in place during my visit), but the standard buffer breakfast was replaced by a dry roll filled with Jamon (ham), cheese, and butter with jam in plastic containers.

After the waiter recovered from a shock when I told him we don’t eat meat, we were served toast with jam and butter and coffee.

Breakfast in Andalusia is usually a low-key affair that involves some sort of pastry and coffee, so if you want proper food that fills you up, a buffet breakfast is the best option.

In the evenings, we would come back to the hotel to enjoy a glass of wine on the restaurant terrace which was open till late.

At that time it’s already very quiet so you can only hear the stream running down under the rocks and the guitar player who performs in the restaurant on Saturday nights.

I can’t comment on the food quality as we chose to dine in and around the city and not in the hotel.

The Rooms

There are three types of rooms available in the hotel, standard double rooms, double rooms with bridge view and double rooms with a view of the Plaza de Espana.

Some of these also have a terrace where you can sit and enjoy the views of Puente Nuevo.

Initially, I wanted to book a room with a terrace, but they did not have an extra bed option for that one, so we ended up with a family room and bridge views.

The room was super spacious, with just one window that provided enough daylight. We had a little nook with chairs and a table.

Opposite the front door were huge wardrobes with plenty of space for storing clothes and a very spacious family bathroom with walk-in shower.

Even though it was the middle of the summer, the room did not get hot or noisy.

Overall Impression

I had a lovely stay at the hotel and can’t stress enough what a wonderful location it had and how it felt like waking up to this view each morning.

The staff was super friendly and I loved the fact that it felt like staying in a boutique hotel as opposed to one of the usual hotel chains.

My only criticism would be regarding the lack of coffee/tea facilities in the room.

If you want one of the best views in Ronda, this is the place to be!
