Myself and 2 friends stayed in the hotel in Aug this year and found the location to be exactly what we needed. A leisurely 5 min walk to the beach in Marbella for daytime, and directly opposite the bus stop which takes u to Puerto Banus(2euro) or taxi rank which is 15 euro each way for the nightlife. The staff... More

During our stay we had an issue with the car park system - the Director of the hotel dealt with this personally and sorted very effectively and very kind with us. We will be back there again. Thank you for all.

I have stayed at this hotel many times before with my boyfriend because we simply love it, it oozes genuine Spanish charm! The staff are always so polite and so happy, and nothing is ever too much trouble. The location is fantastic as it is in the old Town of Marbella, with the beach only a 5 minute walk away... More

My boyfriend & I stayed at the Hotel San Cristobal last month. I found the rooms to be clean and spacious and the location excellent. Most importantly, after I left an item behind that had special value, the hotel staff worked with me and coordinated the shipping of the item from Spain to the United States. For this reason alone,... More

I stayed at the hotel in July and all in all I had a fantastic stay. The hotel is located close to the beach and just a stones throw away from old town Marbella where there are plenty of restaurants and cool little souvenir shops to buy cute little figures from.

Hotel is next to the main road in Marbella and the rooms at the back are over the old town. Side rooms have a no view really and look at the walls of the building next door. So it's noisy and not the most picturesque hotel. That said, it's in the middle of everything within a short distance on foot.... More

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The location is great, right in the old town centre at 5 minutes from the beach. Rooms are promptly clean and everything was great. Only disappointment is that the hotel is in a shopping centre so it takes an additional flight of stairs to get to the reception,

Although the hotel shares the building with a shop, it is a very nice place to stay. The sea is only a 5-minute walk away down the beautiful Alameda park and as you come out of the hotel you immediately get to Marbella's Old City. In this way the place is great both for the sea and the restaurants and... More
