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

My partner and I stayed in the Central Hotel for one week in April 2013. The best recommendation I could give this hotel is its location; very central, just a couple of minutes walk from the old town. The accommodation is very basic, the weather was cold at the time and our room was freezing, we kept asking for more... More

Lovely little hotel, nice room tastefully decorated, pleasant staff, very reasonably priced. It’s located on a narrow little pedestrian street with several other 2-star hotels and pensions, and lots of plants and foliage everywhere, and it’s quiet since there are no cars. A simple breakfast was included (coffee, croissant, juice). You can’t get to it by car, but there’s an... More

It is 2 star so you get what you pay for. It's a hotel to put your head down for the night or use to explore Marbella. Near the beach and old town. Breakfast is below average fried eggs that had been cooked hours ago and put in hot tray.

We stayed here for a week Easter 2012. Great boutique style hotel, we loved it. Rooms always clean, breakfasts great and location couldn't be better. Its on a narrow pedestrian street so no traffic noise. Walk to the top of the street, across the road - the old town. Walk to the bottom of the street, across the road -... More

We booked for 1 night and stayed 11, such was the homely, friendly atmosphere and a great town in Marbella. The hotel is well positioned for the old town and the beach promenade - the best part of Marbella - forget plastic Puerto Banus. The ladies on reception were delightful which really makes a 2 star hotel seem and feel... More

Lovely ground floor comfort room, tastefully decorated with garden terrace as well. Excellent location and value for money? Ideal place to stay if visiting the charming old town of marbella can be difficult to find as located in a quiet small street so ensure you have directions

Hotel Central is situated yards from a main road yet due to it being located on a pedestrian street it's blissfully quiet but only minutes from the beach or the old town. Very friendly staff, lovely individually styled rooms with free wifi and English TV channels. Public parking is just round the corner at 20Euro per day. Hard to believe... More

The reasons we chose this hotel : price and location. My husband and I are from Ireland, and we were on holiday in Andalusia (Southern Spain). We spent a few days on the Mediterranean, and Hotel Central was an excellent location -- 5 minute walk to the Sea; right next to "Old Town Marbella;" close to bus stops, little bakeries,... More
