“Perfect choise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Very nice small hotel in old part of city center, but just few steps from beach.
Pretty roof terrace and ground floor patio.
Rooms with almost everything what you need, soft beds, fully equipped bathroom, safety box, tv with good radio stations, air-conditioner and lovely balcony, but I really missed bathroom ventilator and anteroom light.
Reception crew, every single one, was very friedndly and helpfull and room always cleaned well.
Breakfast for 3,50 euro (every day same food, but i liked it, two kinds of bread rolls, butter, salami, cheese, strawberry and appricot jam, melon, orange juice, water, coffee and tea).
Nights are very noisy in Fuengirola, so is better to spent night at some of theirs amazing small pubs or at some club(mostly dance, only one rock club in whole town) and sleep at morning.
I can really recommend this hostal for nice vacation.

Stayed here for a relaxing holiday and it was..5 minutes to the beach and close to the busy city center though was in a quiet spot which suited me,bed was comfy and room was cleaned every day,spotless!very friendly and helpful staff,Didn't have to pay for safety deposit box unlike most hotels,only negative thing i can say is there is no kettle in room but i didnt mind because i was able to just go to the lounge area and make tea when i wanted it,would return again and again.

Thank you for your nice comments. We consider to place a kettle in the rooms, so maybe... next time you return you will find one.
Best regards from Hostal Marbella

Quite small hotel located in a good position. Close to the center of the city center, but not so noisy street. Close enough to the beach and easy to find.
Rooms were quite basic ones but tidy.
Some noise coming from the stairwell and street but did not disturb our nights.
Breakfast available for low price: bread, cheese, jamon, juice, coffee.

If you look for a modern hotel with all luxury services, this is a wrong address.
If you look for a neat hotel to sleep and live during your stay, this a good option.

If visiting Fuengirola again, I'll choose this hotel again.

I went to Fuengirola on my own and got this hotel on a really good offer, cheaper than the local hostels. Was impressed with the room, nice bathrooms, comfortable bed, plenty of space, good sized wardrobe and safe in each room. The bar was cheap and the lounge area downstairs accomodated for me by putting the football on (Euro 2012). Nice roof terrace as well to chill out. Close to local shops, bars and the bus and train stations and about a 3 minute stroll to the beach. Free Wifi is available and is very handy when abroad.

The owners/staff dealt with any issues (i.e. I didn't have a shower curtain when I arrived and had some difficulty with the safe) straight away and were really welcoming and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 208 had a balcony which was lovely, looking out onto the street.

Centrally located, easy, priceworthy accomodation on cosy street. Great service, comfortable beds. Nicely cleaned every day. Walking distance to beach, Miramar Skatepark, and shopping centre. Close to many good restaurants. Nice rooftop terrace which is perfect at wintertimes when the beach is sometimes too windy. We've stayed there at several occations. I like it a lot and we will definitely come back, many times!

We've stayed at Hostal Marbella several times when visiting Fuengirola. A few years back, the previous owner weren't spending a lot on necessary renovations, but this has changed a lot with the new owners. New lounge area, newly painted interiors, new fabrics and so on.The beds are very comfortable (some might need to be screwed together though, sleeping two people :-)) and there's a lot of TV-channels. The only thing we really miss is a small fridge in the room to keep cool water/snacks! It's a small and sweet hostal, located on one of the best streets - calm, quiet and close to everything. The top floor rooms where we always stay have really nice balconies/terrasses where we spent most of our evenings. Great service from everyone in the personnel, cleaned every day, really affordable prices. Free WiFi. We like it a lot and miss it whenever we're not there.
