I stayed at this hotel with 2 of my girlfriends for 3 nights in March. The staff were all friendly & the room was clean with a balcony overlooking the square & fountain. The location is hard to beat as it is central for both the Old Town & the Promenade. It is also convenient for the bus stops which... More

Just returned from this gem in Central Marbella. Situated on Marbellas Main Street within easy reach of the picturesque lanes and plazas of the old town which are a must to explore. Bus services leave to anywhere you could which to go from your doorstep and the beach and promenade are only short walk away. Our rooms were on the... More

My wife and I have just returned from a one week break staying at the Hotel San Cristobel. You are always a little sceptic when booking a new hotel for the first time and I would have to say all of the positive comments we read on here prior to our holiday were absolutely true. In particular the hotel staff... More

Superb hotel - well located. Stayed for a week and had no complaints. Room was clean and functional and my return flight wasn't until late evening and the hotel allowed me to have my room until 5pm without any extra charge. Location is great & I easily found the bus station (about 15 minutes walk from the hotel) so I... More

This hotel is definitely the best to book if you want to be central to all that Marbella has to offer. With the Old town at the back of the hotel be sure to walk around the Orange Square - beautiful cafes, trees and ambiance. If you prefer more action and people then cross the road at the front of...

I was really happy with the hotel. It was basic, but that was expected and reflected in the price. I got all I could ask for really, very clean and well looked after. Its real selling point is the location, right in the old town. The breakfast was fine, it could have been better, but then again we got what... More
