Tucked away on a quiet pedestrian street right on the edge of the Old Town and just a few minutes walk from the beautiful Orange Square, this is a surprisingly good two star hotel. With a good sized room, authentically decorated in a modern way, a full-sized bath and a large comfy bed. The staff were really friendly, cheerful and... More

We had read several unpleasant reviews of this hotel but as we had already phoned a number of others who wouldn't accept our chihuahua, we decided to just bite the bullet and stay here. First off, a warning...it is difficult to find but if you persist, it is well worth it! You can't drive down a street to it as... More

I stayed at the Hotel Central Marbella with a friend on New Year's Eve 2013. We chose this hotel as it was cheap and near to the Old Town and Orange Square, which is within walking distance - even in heels! We received a friendly welcome from the lady at Reception. The room was very basic but the bed was... More

We arrived late in the night, but it was no problem as the hotel has 24 hour reception service. Only had a few problems with the man in the reception as he only spoke Spanish. But we got the key and the room was nice, clean and newly renovated - better than expected for a 2 star hotel. The stay... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 5 days in June 2013. It is on a pedestrian street acessible from the main road. The staff are very friendly and helpful except for the night shift guy who doesn't smile at all. The rooms are acceptable and clean but they have a very small balcony on which you can... More

Stayed 5 nights this past few days (mid June) and read up on TripAdviser beforehand. Was not expecting luxury but pleasantly surprised at standards for a 2*. Nice size room (asked for comfort) and clean beds and bathroom. Was on 2nd floor so balcony was tiny not for standing on, view was over rooftops but could see mountains and Incarnacion... More

The room was lovely as was the hotel and location but they advertise a room with a terrace and the cleaner never cleans it or the chairs so would not sit in it. The bathroom was dirty , behind the toilet dirty , dust in the room and corners not clean , clean beds though. They would get higher scores... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a very warm welcome from the reception staff. The room was on the ground floor and we had a terrace. The room was air conditioned and a good size and was clean apart from the fridge which was sorted as soon as we mentioned it, and we had clean towels daily. You... More

The room setting is nice and is like a boutique hotel. The location is also good because you are not far from the see and the old town. The most disappointing point is the noise due to bad quality of the walls. You hear everything, water pipe, neighbour's snouring, alarm clock set on vibration, shower, singing under the shower, cups... More

a lovely hotel on a beatiful quiet pedestrian street, easy walking distance to everything. The rooms we had were large with everything we needed for a weekend away. Breakfast was great with bacon eggs toast cereal and fruits. Super for the price. The hotel was very clean and quiet and the staff very friendly. Rooms were warm and beds very... More
