Very close to both the beach and the old town, this hotel is ideally located for a visit to Marbella as everything the typical tourist wants to see is within easy walking distance. We had a very nice corner room with two balconies and good views from both. Everything we needed was available and worked. Parking is available for those... More

I stayed here with my 26 year old daughter for 2 nights on a b&b basis. The hotel has no pool but is very nice. It has spacious rooms, comfy beds, good sized very clean bathrooms and an excellent location on edge of the Old Town Marbella and the beach and Marina. We didn't eat in the restaurant although it...

This hotel is in a great location, about a three minute walk from the beach. It is quite old-fashioned, however, and is very much suited to those looking for a no-frills, good value hotel. The standard of service was okay.

Excellent hotel location! Good size rooms and very clean! Good front desk service to suit the needs of the guests. Need to better provide the WiFi service but overall it was an awesome experience and much more being right on the center of the old city!

The location of this hotel is superb, i minute from Orange Square, 3 minutes from the beach. Rooms are reasonable, clean and have comfort cooling which is essential in this climate. Basics are given as far as toiletries, however if you ask they will supply anything you require, even needle & thread! HOWEVER YOU NEED TO ASK. Wifi signal is... More

Location: Honestly, the location is excellent, right in the heart of the city, two minutes away (walking) from the old town and Orange Square and 4 minutes away (walking) from the beach and the Marbella strip. The hotel is on the main road with a bus stand + taxi stand a stone’s throw away. If you are a Burger King... More
