We have stayed at this hotel for a wedding for a weekend. Is not a bad choice in the area, not much to choose from anyway, but hotel is modern, clean, very close to the main road, and has good points to take in account: A fast wifi free of charge, very few rooms and a parking area also for free. Is a *** hotel, and price is fair for all those good points indicated before. Rooms are quite silent, despite if there is a party downstairs (only 2 floors) you may hear some noise if sensitive person, but not my case. Areas to improve, at least on my opinion: We stayed 2 nights on a 3 people bedrooms. First day not enough towels for the 3 of us, but second night they did not change the towels, just made the beds. We had a very windy and rainy day, and isolation from balcony window was very low, so we struggled to sleep at night due the noise (but is very rare to have this climate conditions there). Breakfast: Is good, but just limited on choices, but tasty and local. Very good point: downstairs bar is open 24h, you can also order food! Rooms are cold, we had to open the heating system (not the one on the wall as does not work, a different one with remote). Bathroom was really cold (no heating).

I put *** just because the negative points, but is a very good option to stay few nights if you are on the area.

Loved our time at the hotel Mencia Subbetica. Perfect location for the annual cheese festival at Zuheros and for the Via Verde on which we had a fantastic bike ride. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful in looking after us, including locking away our bikes to keep them safe and keeping our cheese in their fridge.

Stayed: September 2017

We stayed in Dona Mencia to have a hub for exploring Northern Andalucia. We chose Dona Mencia on the back of Youtube videos and reviews. The Hotel Dona Mencia Subbetica did not dissapoint from start to finish. It is worth pointing out from the outset, that we got a deal for a week in July for 2 adults and a child for £400 including breakfast. The Hotel is very easy to find if travelling north from Malaga and the Hotel offers spacious free parking. The room was clean with a balcony, with a fantastic view over the mountains. The bathroom spacious with free toiletries, hairdryer and plenty of towels. The Hotel is modern and has a cafeteria with a range of meals, a great restaurant with a la carte options with magnificent tables outside, looking over the area. The Pool is very good with plenty of loungers surrounding.
Staff deserve huge credit, none speak English, but a little Spanish will get you by no problem. A perfect location in the hills close to Cordoba, really good temps of around 36 degrees in July. A skilled chef on site who uses quality local ingredients, that allow total relaxation, away from the awful sights of All Day English Breakfasts on the Costa. Superb value with great Spanish hospitality and wine by the glass at under 2 Euros. Brilliant.

Room Tip: All rooms have good views

I wanted a stopover between Jerez and Cazorla and decided that this hotel fitted the bill. It is situated a short distance, not even 100 metres from the A-318 that I had been travelling on, so was very convenient. It is a relatively new hotel, (I was told it had been there for about 4 years), and was impressed by what I found especially for the price I paid. Checking in was processed quite quickly and on entering my room, found it to be large with a balcony looking out at the Sierras Subbeticas. The room and bed were comfortable and the bathroom was quite large with all the toiletries supplied. I didn't use the restaurant, but had the 'menu del dia' in the bar area. This was also very good quality with good size portions and very inexpensive. They have a pool and childrens play area as well as a large terrace for alfresco dining or just having a drink. Although I only stayed for 1 night, I was impressed with the quality and the value that this hotel offered, so would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

Very pleased with our choice (based on previous reviews) of Hotel Mencia Subbetica as base for a short trip around Andalusia. The hotel is easy to find. Took the Superior room, as we wanted extra space for our little one. Worked very well - splendid bathroom, comfy bed with crisp linen and lovely views from the balcony. Room was very clean and very well presented. Heating/AC worked very well. Took breakfast in hotel, which was Continental style (juice, coffee and toast). Ate snacks/tapas and food in bar on two of the evenings - note restaurant doesn't open till 8.30. All very good quality and reasonably priced. Not a huge selection available outside restaurant hours, but enough for us. Staff all very friendly - reception helped us with directions to book a local tour of the 'cave of the bats' in Zuheros (lots of steps!), and in ensuring there were tickets at Alhambra. Bar staff even found us a plug adapter when we arrived as I'd brought wrong one. Too cool to use pool, but a nice little playground there. We were out of season, and so the only tourists throughout our stay. Some Spanish language will help you, as only receptionist spoke lots of English. Dona Mencia is a lovely regional town, with a nice centre inc large kids playground. Not a lot of eating options, especially before normal Spanish supper time of 9.00. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return. Though its not a large hotel, no hesitation in awarding it 5/5 overall. Good value for money

Room Tip: We chose the Superior room option, and thought it was great.
