"The food was a highlight with fantastic, imaginative and fresh dishes cooked for us"
Tripadvisor review

The Village Room is the perfect vantage point to observe the goings-on of Cartajima, the locals going to the Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) usually with a minor rant about something negligible but a chance to socialise and talk to the mayor!

The Village Room – Perfect For People Watching

Protected from onlookers by the plants growing on your balcony, you can also observe who is going to the bar down in the plaza below the ayuntamiento. Most of the villagers pass by the square, which is actually more round than square, during the course of their day going to get bread from the local store or to play cards in the evening with their mates or simply to sit on a bench and chat.

This room is on the same floor as the dining room so you can make a beeline for the sumptuous breakfast buffet which starts at 9 am. We are however flexible and will serve breakfast earlier for those with an early flight or who have an early entrance time for the oh so scary Caminito del Rey. Not scary at all! Simply magnificent.

Our only ground floor room. south facing, very light and airy room. Full walk-in shower room with bidet. half balcony overlooking village square and fluttering flags of the Ayuntamiento (Town Hall). Special feature: Access to drawing room, snug, dining room without climbing stairs perfect for people with physical limitations.

There is plenty of safe street parking very close to the hotel. We help you park when you arrive.

Mountain Views

It has been said that we have the best mountain views in Andalucia from the gorgeous rooftop terrace.

No TVs

We have just one television in the snug which is seldom used but is there for special occasions.

Adult Retreat

We welcome children over 12 or babies in cots but cannot accept children in between. We just do not have the appropriate facilities.

Private Ensuite

Each of our rooms is ensuite and one, the Private Retreat, has a tub if this is something that is important for you.

Local Knowledge

We are a fount of local knowledge and more than eager to share it with you so please just ask about your preferred activities.


We offer a laundry service for our long-haul guests so just ask if that is something you need.


Los Castaños is a very private place and the big antique front door is always closed. You will be given a key so you can come and go as you please.
