Alavera de los Baños literally means “by the side of the baths”.
As the name implies, it is right by the 13th century public baths of the Moorish citadel. These are considered to be one of the best Islamic examples of their kind anywhere – and are not to be missed.
The hotel itself is small, charming and located by the edge of the wonderful medieval town of Ronda. Inma and Christian, the very friendly hosts, have built up Alavera in keeping with Spanish-Moorish traditions. Hence the interior includes wafer bricks and warm colours whilst the exterior is made up of whitewashed walls, terra cotta tiles, railings with flowers etc.
There is also a reading room come library and lounge. A really attractive and well-decorated hotel that provides for a pleasant stay.

Understandably this is a very popular place to stay, so our relatively late booking meant that the only room available was quite small and overlooked the (generally very quiet) road. Nevertheless we really enjoyed our stay, the owners were very helpful and it's location suited us perfectly, although some might find the climb up into the town a bit taxing. The swimming pool was an added bonus as we didn't realise there was one and the weather was very warm. Would definitely go again, but would be sure to book earlier and get a larger room!

Veldig bra og koselig. kan trygt anbefales. men du må like og kjøre i smale gater.
Wunderschönes Hotel am Altstadthang

Wunderschönes kleines Hotel, abseits vom Trubel, ruhig, sehr schönes Ambiente, toller kleiner Garten, Pool, Ausblick nur in die Natur. Am Rande der herrlichen Altstadt, nur wenige Stufen und man ist mittendrin. Prima Frühstück wird persönlich serviert, sehr netter Besitzer und netter Empfang. Viele hilfreiche Infos zum Aufenthalt. Gute Literatur, Zeitschriften usw.in kleiner Bibliothek. Wir parkten direkt vor dem Haus und hatten ein kleines, aber feines Zimmer mit Deckenventilator, ohne TV, den wir aber nie vermissten. Unbedingt empfehlenswert!
