Very friendly staff

Great access to Marbella Old Town

The rooms were functional and very clean.

I did not eat in the hotel, preferring to go out into Marbella Town for breakfast and dinner. So, I cannot comment on the food. However, in January, as there were not many people there it was not always open. I suspect that later in the year it will be very friendly and charming to eat in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Go high and at the front so you can see the main street and the Square and sea

By staying at this hotel you get the best location in all of Marbella to visit the Old Town and the Boardwalk several times a day if you so wished. a very well appointed 3 * with friendly staff. Breakfast is basic but ample and the rooms are clean and comfortable. We normally choose 4*+ but will not hesitate to rebook this hotel on our return to this area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the Old Town as the front rooms will have the busy road noise to contend with.

Great location, handy car parking facility. Staff were friendly and the towels and bedding were changed regularly. Breakfast not the best, with no eggs or even boiled eggs on offer, just bacon, but it was OK. Restaurant serves a very good value lunch at just €11, so overall very good value for money. We will definitely go back to the San Christobal the next time we go to Marbella. It's a fantastic location being in the centre, with shopping all around you .... For a '' real 3 star hotel '' we give it 9 out of 10 ....

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the front from the second floor up .... Rooms at the side are quieter ....

Centrally located and spacios room. They had a nice parking offer if you travel with car and the breakfast buffet was okay. The only downside we experienced was that the bathroom floor wasn't all clean as it had traves of hair on it which didn't feel so fresh.

Great for short break, had 3 bed room for pre Christmas shopping break, plenty of room, very clean, sheets and towels changed daily. Not a tourist hotel, but lovely atmosphere, nice breakfast. The restaurant serves an excellent 3 course lunch for 11 euros. Will definitely return.

What a wonderful hotel, great location, lovely park opposite the hotel, then onto the beach with bars and shops. The staff at the hotel were so nice and helpful. The breakfast was just right. Also the rooms were lovely and clean, fresh towels everyday. I will be going back.

Room Tip: We had a balcony, and it looked over a fountain in the park, and at night the fountain lit up to all...
