We stayed at the hotel Rosaleda de Don Pedro in Ubeda, parent chain Husa Hotels, for four nights in May 2006. The hotel was well situated near the centre of the old town. The en suite room was a good size, comfortable and quiet with plenty of storage space – we paid 80 euros per night for a double room. The public areas were attractive and spacious, one little quibble was that the TV was left on in the evenings, so you had to listen to it whether you liked it or not.
In addition to the main restaurant, there was a very good barbecue in the evenings. The latter was held in a pretty interior courtyard with roses scrambling up one wall. The service was good, and so was the wine list. The price was quite reasonable at less than 20 euros per person plus VAT at 7% including drinks.
Breakfast was taken in the bar which was fine, especially the freshly squeezed orange juice, but they did charge extra for cheese and cold meat.
Parking at 9 euros per night was in an underground car park which was efficient and modern, but a little tight on space. I was glad to leave that to Andrew !.
On the whole I would be happy to return there should we re-visit the area one day.

I was searching on the internet for somewhere to stay near to Jaen and Ubeda, and this hotel came up in my search. It seemed ideal, so after minimal thought, we booked it for four nights through the website of the parent chain, Husa Hoteles. Our room was on the first floor right above the main entrance, but even so it was quiet. Quite a good size room, too, clean with good storage and a nice bathroom. It cost us 80 euros per night for a double room.
The hotel has a restaurant – not very busy when we were there, and also a barbecue in the courtyard. The restaurant was OK, but the service was a bit erratic the only time we ate in it – the waitress obviously wanted to get home in a hurry. We were a little late eating though, and for the rest of our stay the service was very good everywhere. The barbecue was very good, with generous portions and a decent choice, for under 20 euros including drinks. A simple breakfast was included in the price, and could be ordered from the bar, but they charged extra for things like ham and cheese. The only downside was that the television in the bar was on loudly every evening, whether anyone was watching it or not, so it wasn’t a place to sit around and talk.
And just to cap it off, there was FREE internet access on the computer in the library – not a very fast computer, but a good connection. The computer wasn’t set up very well though, as I could see the previous person’s history - try clearing your cache when all the menus are in Spanish !
The hotel has a garage in the lower basement - 9 euros per day. It's a tight turn from the street, especially if people have parked badly, and the car-lift is even tighter - I saw a large 4x4 come out of it one day, with about an inch to spare each side.
