The location great as the old town is literally outside the back entrance and the sea is 5 minutes from the front entrance. However the hotel is very dated, worn looking and basic. The breakfast is terrible, soggy bacon, over cooked eggs. Not a pleasant dining area. There is a lovely cafe opposite or many places on the front that...

First time in Marbella and picked this hotel because of its location. We were not disappointed. Close to beach and a step from the Old Town which is absolutely delightful. Shops and restaurants beautifully clean and well kept.. One of the nicest old town settings we have visited. The Hotel was spotlessly clean, reception staff ever so helpful, and room...

The breakfast in the hotel was better than previous visit with introduction of hot plates with egg, bacon, sausages and mushrooms. Our room has just been refurbished (504)...

We took a black car to get to the hotel at 02:00am. Front desk is opened 24/7 which is really convenient. We found the staff very friendly all along our stay. Very polite and smiling all the time. Hotel has very recently refreshed rooms and everything is very clean. Situated in the center of Marbella, in front of the Dali...

We’ve just returned from a short break (Wednesday to Sunday) at the Hotel San Cristobal in Marbella. This was our second visit and the standards are still as high as ever. The reception staff were ever willing to help with advice regarding local places to visit and details of bus timetables as ever. Breakfast was the standard buffet continental meats,...

If you are looking for a well located and reasonable priced place to stay, then this is the place. If you are however looking for a quiet hotel ie no road noise, you may find this location is not for you, but if u keep your balcony door closed then you wouldn't notice any noise. Within a few minutes walk,...

We stayed there one night as the tour bus picked us up at the San Cristobal. The general-manager was a great host. The rate was great the room clean and nice. Great location also for touring and shopping and access to the Mediterranean!
