The hotel looks good from first appearances but my wife and I had a horrible time. The wifi works good but we were onthe 4th floor and it only worked in the reception area. The shower had good hot water and the room was a good size. The hotel is only about two blocks from the train and bus station.The... More

Only stayed one night, height of the season at the beginning of July..and for £28.00 BB for a double for sole, It was great! So central, just 2 minute walk to Fuengirola Train Station, 1 minute to Buses etc.. Smooth Check-in, lovely themed rooms and very clean.

Hadn't stayed here for a couple of years. Cheap place to stay, not far from train or bus station. Now all the rooms have a different theme, love it.

El Cid hotel provides cheap accommodation in Fuengirola. Location is good - it's about 10 minutes walk from the beach and there're a lot of restaurants and cafes near by. The rooms are spacious; we had a tv-set, an AC and a balcony in our room. The main problem was about linen - it was clean but smelled with chlorine.

We were directed to room, lift & coridors smelt awful, room like wise. Nothing like the pictures on... More

There was a problem with my booking because at that time they were not affiliated with HostelBookers.com. They took this Hostel over from the old owners who just left it and ran in the night. They are working steadily to upgrade it and put it back into good condition. They refunded my deposit saying it was more important to have... More
