The beds are the worst and i always stay in low budget accomodation and these are the most uncomfortable ive ever slept on. We booked a double room and ended up with a... More

We spent the past five New Years at this hotel. The standards are great value for money. Rooms vary in size but are very comfortable and clean. Buffet breakfast is ample. The hotel is very central and only a short walk to both the beach or Orange Square. Staff at the hotel are very accommodating. I would highly recommend this... More

Me and my girlfriend always stay at the San Cristobal. Everything about this hotel suits us, its location is second to none. As a couple we have travelled the world and the San Cristobal is high on our list for a town hotel. The charm and simplicity of the hotel makes it what it is. The rooms are clean and... More

It has an excellent location. Hotel reception and restaurant staff are very helpfull. We stayed there for 2 weeks , hotel and food both were excellent; may be you can add hot items to the breakfast sp for long staying guest as it can get boring. Love the shopping around! Will return. London.

The position of the hotel is very central for the "Old Town" which is where the new year is brought in at "Orange Square" The lady at reception is very helpful and friendly. The room... More

We stayed for 4 nights over Christmas. It was right in the middle of it all, great for shopping, beach and the old town. The room was a little bit tired decor wise but the bed was comfy. It had a TV in the room and a fridge. Our room was on the road side and was quite noisy with... More

Hotel San Cristobal is a hotel which has many advantages such as comfortable rooms and a convenient location close to the lovely old town of Marbella and not far from the pleasant Paseo Maritimo. However the food for breakfast is repetitive and unimaginative and the menu is managed in such a way that many of the dishes they advertise are... More

I've just got back home after spending 4days at San Cristobal in Marbella. 4 of us went as it was my birthday on the wednesday and 2 of my cousins birthdays also. We knew that it would be quieter going in December but still we wanted a little party holiday. San Cristobal has a perfect location close to the beach... More

Within minutes we were at the check desk and were greeted by a very friendly man who gave us a very warm welcome indeed. So far so good! Whoops! spoke to soon,... More
