The hotel group La Ciudadela Marbella has started the works of the Puerta de Ronda hotel, which will be the first five-star establishment located in the old quarter of the city and which will open its doors in 2023 with a total of seven exclusive roomsas announced on Wednesday by the company.
This new hotel, the fourth establishment projected by the group in the town, despite being located in the building with the largest area of the company, it will be the one that fewer rooms have, in order to achieve a unique and exclusive experience for each of its guests.
The hotel will have seven roomsof which one will be suite room presidential, three jjunior and 3 doubles deluxe they will be, and as has happened in the three previous openings, they will be the result of the vision of Miguel Cerván, CEO of the group, who will personally be in charge of the decoration and design of each space pampering every detail.
In this way, you will develop a concept in which “clean lines, noble materials and a modern and cozy atmosphere” will offer a unique experience for those who decide to stay in Puerta de Ronda, where all the rooms will be very spacious and in some cases they will have an exclusive garden with a private Jacuzzi, they have indicated.
“Distributed around a beautiful interior patio, the new Puerta de Ronda hotel will also have a rooftop which can be accessed by the guests of the establishmentand which will undoubtedly become the most select private corner of the historic center from Marbella”, they added.
As in the other hotels of the chain, each room will have 500 thread count Egyptian cotton sheetshair straightener and dryer from the firm GHD, SMEG mini fridges in which you can find a wide variety of products gourmet local and international, as well as its exclusive amenitieswhich in this establishment will be from the firms Hermès and Bvlgari.
The hotel group has highlighted that the building in which this new hotel is located has great significance in the life and history of the city, and is located in the well-known Plaza de Puerta de Rondawhich was one of the three entrances and exits of the city at the time it was fortified.
As they have indicated, the studies of the city indicate that the building in which the future hotel is located “may have been part of the old Muslim medina, in the Andalusian period, which occurred in the twelfth century under Almohad rule”. In this sense, they have pointed out that “although during the 19th and 20th centuries several parts of this wall disappearedits layout has been fossilized in the urban fabric and in the case of Puerta de Ronda this was the entrance and exit of those who were heading towards the mountains, which made it a propitious place to collect taxes”.
The old house where the hotel is located belonged to D. Alonso Roldán y Quiñones, alderman of the City Council at the time of the Napoleonic invasion at the beginning of the s. XIX, and which later became in mayor of Marbellaonce the city was liberated from the French invaders.
