We went for a week to boutique hotel Claude in Marbella, Spain.
What a treat!

After making the reservation online, we received an email and a few days later a phone call to confirm, ask how late we would arrive and provide us with a route description. This is a good example of the personal attention we experienced througout our entire stay.

Check in was done in a lounge area with a glass of wine. After that a brief tour was provided by te owner, together with a short history of the building. Rooms (total 7) were spacious, luxurious and very clean. Airco, Bose iPod docking station, flat screen and wifi where standard. Bathroom with rainshower and Molton Brown products.

Staff was exrtremely helpfull: tips and reservations for restaurants, gift voucher for SPA and gym outside the hotel (which we did not use) and a breakfast specially made for us (no buffet!). Hotel has a roof top terras for breakfast or drinks in the afternoon. Beautifull views of the old town and Mediteranian Sea on the horizon.

Hotel is located in the old city of Marbella (no Porto Banus - thanks!) in a very quite neigbourhood. A 2 minute walk and you are in the touristic scene, 5 minute walk from the beach.

Thanks for a week of luxury. Worth every Euro! We for sure go back.

This property was such a joy to stay in...very quaint, very well decorated & updated but with all of the charm of the original building. Desiree made our stay so incredibly memorable and special with her fantastic hospitality. Great location as well.

Room Tip: We had the Flamant suite, tucked up in the attic. Great room, comfy bed, great air cond., only draw...

Initially I was a little woried about the location, although we wanted to stay in the oldtown, but i was afraid it would be confusing. Once we found a parking spot which is usually not easy because of the location, we were breathless from the first step in to the hotel.
Stone entrance, with a sweet citrus burning, drawing you in. Instantly the place felt familiar. the calmness of one's own home.

We were greated by Desiree who had already established a connection with us through email. she sent us pics of the rooms, and gave us a choice, she was also accomodating to our preferences, and sent us directions with good tips.
Desiree,wais a large part of our amazing experience. we felt the place was her's only to discover its her brothers, close enough. she was warm, welcoming and very helpful and genuine. she led us to our room which was through the courtyard, and up the stairs. it was beautiful. the provenzal room, our choice, was cute, small (although she gave us a choice of a bigger room) and very stylish. We learnt that Desiree's sister in law was the creativity behind the decor. An excellent job.
There was minimal noise although the hotell is small with some 7 or 8 rooms, but there is so much privacy that i went out with my bathrobe a couple of times to the tea and coffee facility set up on the same floor.
The breakfast is up on the roof, taking you back to a scene of A Room with a View, multiple rooftops fill the horizon with the glimpse of the sea in the background, the birds fill the air, and the beautiful church just across the street stands great in framing the perfect view. we had planned to have breakfast outside but were too seduced by the morning scene in hotel claude.
I had been to marbella manytimes visiting family who have a summer home here, this is the first time i fell in love with it, thanks to hotel claude, if i come again, staying there would be a big reason to be persuaded to go back.
leaving felt a little bit sad, and saying goodbye to Desiree was saying farewell to a friend, all heart felt.

p.s. getting in to bead was heaven! amazing sheets, we wanted to ask where they bought them but forgot.

Room Tip: Ask for photos

Very nice small hotel combining the advantages of a hotel with the service and friendliness of the perfect B&B. Very well situated in surprisingly - to us anyway - attractive old town of Marbella. Close to restuarants etc, and convenient to the bus station if you wish to venture further withour driving. We had a very enjoyable stay of four nights.

Room Tip: If there is an upgrade available it will be given.

We have only just returned from the Hotel Claude, in Marbella - and we really have had the most lovely time. The owners are all charming, and nothing is too much trouble for them, to make your stay special...it is not like a hotel in fact, it was so much more - we really felt like we were incredibly welcome guests, staying in a family home.
We loved it.
And Old Town Marbella is charming, even if Puerto Banus is not.
We saw authentic Flamenco dancing, and have eaten in lovely restaurants, and met some lovely people along the way. And today, with an extremely elongated check out time, we have had the pleasure of whiling away the day on the roof terrace, in the sun, reading. Magnificent.
Do go - if you want to feel extra special.

Room Tip: You must ask Desi for recommendations

We loved this interesting & historical hotel which is ideally situated within walking distance of lots of restaurants, bars and shops in the quaint Old Town yet is very quiet so you get a good nights sleep! The room (Oriental) was wonderfully large with extra comforts eg ipod docking etc and the cleanest I've stayed in. The breakfast menu was perfect; the freshest continental style plus eggs anyway you like and was served on the small but well thought out roof terrace. The staff were extremely helpful; Desiree greeted us in style with a glass of cava and organised our taxi transfer from airport as well as booking tables at restaurants - all done with a smile too! We wanted a quiet short break out of UK but not too far, staying in affordable luxury boutique hotel and ability to walk to good restaurants in pretty location - Hotel Claude delivered on all aspects and we even had warm sunshine in March!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Revamped Royal Townhouse Once the summer residence of Empress Eugenia de Montijo (Napoleon III´s wife), Hotel Claude Marbella is a 17th- century townhouse that has been revamped and restyled to meld authentic period features with modern design, setting a new benchmark in the boutique-is- beautiful league of southern Spanish hotels. This latest chic retreat takes its name from the late Claude Devoize, the French Opera singer, whose home this townhouse was back in the 70s and 80s, hosting endless soirees and cultural gatherings. The focus of Hotel Claude is its marble-flagged patio and its unique romantic roof terrace, overlooking the bustling old town of Marbella. The seven rooms, divided into 6 Superior Deluxe Rooms and 1 Suite, have been designed individually and each boasting their own unique personality and feel, though all come equipped with the latest in comfort and technology. The Suite Francesca is the only room that looks out onto the old town’s main street. A large balcony and a huge floor-to-ceiling window keep it bright and airy, and the high, wood-beamed ceilings and decorative arch leading to the minimalist mosaic-fitted bathroom create a sense of spaciousness. All 6 Superior Deluxe Rooms are located to the back of the building, overlooking neighbouring patios and roofs. Up in the eaves, The Flamand room overlooks the roof terrace and has its own private stairwell leading up to a smart loft-style studio with glossy oak floors and a semi-open-plan bathroom. Listening to the church chime outside and looking out over the steeple, you feel like a princess in a tower. Savannah and North African-themed Marroqui are joined by a courtyard, making them ideal for families or friends travelling together. Small properties can sometimes feel stifling, but not here, and the design incorporates a flurry of velvet, purples, reds and cream colours. Once the a la carte breakfast has been served on the roof terrace or the black and white themed “bijou” style dining room, guests are left to their own devices. Focusing on showing guests a slice of the old Marbella, in addition to the Costa del Sol´s beaches and golf courses, Hotel Claude emphasises on slowing down and enjoying the surroundings. You´d be hard-pressed to find a retreat as slick or private as The Claude anywhere in Marbella. ... more   less
