We spent a very happy two nights here in March. The hotel has recently been refurbished and it really has been done well - no road noise, spacious rooms, comfy beds, wonderful roof terrace and bar, and (very important for me) an excellent breakfast with eggs cooked to order and a buffet to please everyone. We were looked after by the friendly, efficient staff, who resolved the only problem within minutes. Perfectly situated at the beginning of the old Town, but 3 minutes walk to the beach/port with all the restaurants and bars. Secure parking is available just up the road under the Mercado, and taxis were always available when we didn't want to use our car. We will definitely stay here again.

I had a lovely stay in the newly refurbished hotel Obal Urban in Marbella. The staff worked tirelessly to ensure guests comfort. I had a very bright superior room overlooking the old town, with a new bathroom, and everything pristine clean, top quality white bed linen, and great sound proofing.. Lovely refreshing drinks in the lobby each day, and an attractive minimalist design in the entrance area. It is in an amazing location beside the old town and main boulevarde for transport links to everywhere. Highly recommended for an outstanding stay in marbella, at a reasonable rate..

Only opened in December (I think) everything in the hotel is sleek and modern. The room I had was on the 3rd floor and was very large indeed. The bathroom was spacious and the rain shower really nice. One thing that struck me was the quality of the pillows. I travel quite a bit and generally find "hotel pillows" to be less than comfortable, not so here. The staff on reception were very friendly and eager to help.

Decided to have a meal in the first floor restaurant and had the lunchtime meal of the day menu. Ordered a glass each of Prosecco and white wine. The measure for the Prosecco was minuscule - only half a flute! And a small flute at that! My husband’s white wine measure was fine. We ordered another 2 drinks and again the prosecco was half a flute. We suggest the hotel restaurant reviews their prosecco measures, as it definitely wasn’t worth 5 euros for half a glass. The meal was ok. Very smart interior nevertheless.

What a lovely hotel!! Very reasonable price also! Still looks like brand new. Welcoming reception..always helpful. Room was big, cold mini fridge...very clean. Did found 1 black long hair..probably from maid..but I have no problem with that as things happen and the room / bathroom was very clean so who cares :) location also perfect..2 little mini shops for water etc on the way to sea and loads of restaurants literally around the corner. Small shallow pool on rooftop with sunloungers and bar. We had breakfast one morning but thought 15 euros each was bit pricey...also buffee was luke warm..maybe because we went later...wouldn't say it was the best breakfast I had. Also cafe Cross the road by the park. Overall loved it!!!

The Òbal Urban Hotel is a stylish hotel with sleek, modern design throughout. From the ground floor Reception area to The Alameda Restaurant up to The 360 Blue Sky Bar. The Reception area is bright and welcoming, The Alameda Restaurant is a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable space morning, daytime and evening. Great food and drinks with professional service. The 360 Blue Sky Bar is superb, wonderful panoramic views, a pool and excellent music coming out of high end, top quality speakers. The bar serves everything from coffee to cocktails, excellent. The rooms are super modern and very comfortable. Good sized bathrooms. Finally, the location is central to everything that Marbella has to offer. Highly recommended.

Very nice hotel, with super friendly reception. The hotel has been renovated and they have done a good job! Modern bathrooms, nice bed and clean. The location is absolutely great, right on the edge of the old cozy center and the entrance to the new part and the beach. Would definitely book again!

Very friendly staff, perfect location. I would choose this hotel again on my next visit to Marbella. Rooftop bar and pool (good for cooling off... not for swimming because only 70cm deep!) and the cocktails are delicious. The cocktails are a bit pricey at €12-14 each - but very tasty. Strong and good coffee! The breakfast buffet was okay but not spectacular.
Premium double room, very neat. Good shower and nice view of the park. Cafeteria and bus stop across the street. Within 5 minutes you are on the beach/promenade and in the Old Town on Plaza de Naranjos. We enjoyed it to the maximum!!

We recommend this hotel, perfectly located to discover the old town, you can leave from the hotel and go to Puerto Banus along the sea (around 9 km). The rooms are superb, spacious and very comfortable. The weather didn't really allow us to enjoy the swimming pool and the roof top, which is a shame because this place is also very beautiful. The staff are very welcoming and really friendly. A little special note to Javier at reception who made a lot of effort to speak to us in French.

Modern hotel with spacious rooms, very well located next to the old neighborhood of the city and 50 meters from the beach, with arranged parking, and in my case I contracted an offer of 105 Euros with breakfast included, which were very complete and well attended.
