The Rosaleda de Don Pedro is right in the middle of the old centre of Úbeda, making it a perfect base from which to explore, although it’s a bit of a trek from the bus station. Part of the Sercotel Hotels group of 3-5 star hotels (the Rosaleda has 3 stars) there’s a full range of rooms from singles to junior suites. There is also has an outdoor pool and terrace which we didn’t have time to enjoy, but it looked very nice.
Our standard double room was up on the 4th (top) floor, with a sloping ceiling that added to its rather rustic feel, but made the bathroom sink and mirror a little inconvenient. Well okay, useless really (had to do hair and make-up out in the room). It could also have used a few more power sockets, and you had to keep signing in to connect to the WiFi, which got a bit frustrating.
But these minor complaints aside, the room was quite spacious and comfortable, and we really enjoyed our two-night stay. I especially loved the fabulous view from the window – a cascade of rooftops on the hill below, and took multiple photos of it at different times of the day. In fact I loved it so much that when the very helpful staff offered to move me to a poolside room with a better WiFi connection, I chose to stay with my view and work downstairs in the comfy TV room, with rustic wooden tables and leather chairs.
Breakfast was fairly “standard hotel”, adequate but nothing special. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and the bar in front of reception is open all day long. Overall, excellent value for money, and I’d be very happy to stay here again.
