We booked this hotel via Booking.com for a couple of reasons - its location within Marbella Town and its proximity to a number of golf courses. I have to say that it scored well on both points. The hotel itself is very unassuming and can be easily missed as the entrance is accessed from the main street via an escalator. The hotel itself is perched about a number of shops so could almost be mistaken for offices or apartments.
The rooms are kept clean and tidy and as far as I know they all are air conditions. The one I had also had a balcony overlooking the main road.
Each room has a safe however you have to rent an electronic fob to be able to use it at a cost of 1.50 euros per day. Not a great deal so why not incorporate it into the price somehow?
The bar, restaurant and breakfast room are all located on the second floor. We only had breakfast however it was a good spread with plenty to choose from. When you leave the room to the back into the town itself you realise the benefits the hotel has in where it is. Only a few minutes walk from a multitude of shops, restaurants and bars. Conversely - if you exit the front way and cross the main road you can be at the beach in five minutes as well.
If I were to go to Marbella again I would seriously consider staying at Hotel San Cristobal again.
