4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

I stayed at hotel krystal for a week bed and breakfast, what do you expect for the price. The rooms were clean and the staff very friendly. Hotel was in ideal location near shops and restaurants and a few minutes from the beach.

It did what it said on the tin and what are people expecting from a budget hotel, will be back next year

Just got back from here.
Location 100%
Staff were 100%
The room itself was basic but fine.
The main problem we had was the noise.
Would definitely stay here again in a different area of the hotel though. As many of the bars closed around 7am, there was noise of people coming and going all night, with little respect for others staying. Doors slamming all day and night! Our room was below the restaurant and seemed noisy from 6am! I don't think those rooms should be used by guests!
We only stayed room only so can't review the food.
There was a stepped walk to the beach but the centre location more than made up for that.
Can't wait to return.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel 30th June - 6th July 2013 in room 220. We booked a double room but were given a triple room with 3 single beds, but believe this may have had something to do with the travel agency booking, rather than the hotel. Nevertheless, the hotel room and surrounding areas were clean and the maid came in every day to clean and change towels. The cleanliness and room service could not be faulted.

The hotel room doors shut with a large bang and the noise in the corridors seem to echo loudly, which wasn't very helpful at 2-3am, hearing people arriving and departing. One night a group of people went past our room and attempted to open our door and to my surprise the room door flung open. The beds in this room I found to be a little squeaky too.

The food was adequate and healthy. Cereals, toast and a continental style of bread rolls, cheese, ham and salami's, various juices, tea/coffee, etc. Dinner had salad every night, consisting of lettuce, tomato, grated beetroot and carrot, black olives, with varying amounts of pasta salads and other Mayonnaise type offerings, or tinned tuna, etc., and there was also a main choice of either fish or meat, such as pork, chicken legs, lamb, Spanish omelette, etc. For dessert, there was a selection of tinned and fresh fruit and one option of either a small token of varying sponge cakes, or a tiny pastry and small individual pots of ice cream. The food overall was adequate, plentiful and healthy.

The staff working at this hotel were all very friendly, helpful and welcoming, namely in the restaurant, reception and chamber maid.

The hotel is in a fantastic location, right in the centre of Torremonlinoes, just next to the shops and a few minutes away from the beach. Be warned if you go down to the beach, from any angle of Torremonlinoes, there are a large number of steps to go down/climb up.

My partner and I agree that we would return to this hotel again and think overall that it was good value for money. The location, friendly staff, adequate food and friendliness were all persuasive in this decision.

torremolinos is like a 2 centre resort,the beach area and the town/central area.the hotel is slap bang in the middle of the shopping area,ideal for bars, clubs, restaraunts and train station.we found the hotel clean with very helpful staff,the room was quite big and clean.it also had its own terrace/balcony.the room had been formed by extending on to the existing terrace,but whoever built it forgot to put any power sockets in the walls,which left us with one shaver/power socket in the bathroom,which was placed at high level next to a small glass shelf,this made it rather difficult to charge our phones,tablets and use the hair dryer also using our travel iron was impossible.the towels were changed every other day,but the bedding was not at all during our 7day stay.the choice of food was limited but ok.would probably stay again in another room
