“Romantic Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

What an incredible, special and unique experience! We are frequent travelers and usually stay at large luxury resorts. This time we opted for a more intimate experience and so thankful we did! Hotel Claude is located in a beautiful part of town and walking distance to many shops, excellent restaurants and the beach.
Hotel Claude exceeded any expectations I had. The attention to detail, the impeccable service, the great location, the rooftop terrace, the wonderfully prepared breakfast; all made for lovely stay. Thank you Hotel Claude for the wonderful stay! I can not recommend this Hotel enough!

We live in Veracruz and booked this hotel last minute for a 2 night break,
we were not disappointed. Not been able to park in front of the hotel might
seem off putting but the welcome you receive when checking in makes it
all worth it. A nice chilled glass of Prosecco was served immediately on
our arrival, we were then given a tour of the hotel and the roof terrace and
then to our opulent room. Everything was perfect, the rooms are immaculate
the service is amazing, nothing is too much trouble, they recommended and booked us a fantastic restaurant in orange square, which we would recommend again for its hospitality and
excellent food. There is nothing negative I could say about this hotel or the people who run it, we will not stop anywhere else when we visit Marbella in the future.

Hotel Claude for My family and myself made my whole trip to europe an experience we will always talk about. I cant put my finger on what was good or who was amazing there because everything and everyone was great. All we have been able to talk about on our trip is Hotel Claude so for that I thank you Desiree and Team Claude.

We actually live in Marbella and I decided to invite my wife to spend a night 'away' in the Old Town. Like most privately owned boutique hotels Hotel Claude has it's eccentricities but the shortcomings (few) are completely outnumbered by the positives. Not being able to park at the hotel might discourage some (our sat nav and yes we live in Marbella, was directing me to the wrong side of an impenetrable brick wall some distance away!). They shouldn't be discouraged but they should grab any available parking spot or use the multi-storey a short walk away. Our suite was absolutely charming and with a super view to the small plaza in front of the hotel to the north of the Old Town. The service was delightful and both personal yet unobtrusive. I'd requested a bottle of Albarino to be left in the room and it was very good indeed and produced by friends of the owners. A request for an iron & board (yes some of us like to dress up in Marbella!) resulted in my clothes being ironed and returned to the wardrobe. In short nothing was too much trouble. We asked for recommendations of things to do and places to go and this took us to Paco Jimenez in Orange Square for an amazing dinner experience. Drinks on the roof terrace before dinner and breakfast there in the morning were both really lovely experiences. I never give anyone ten out of ten but a strong nine for Hotel Claude and we've promised ourselves an 'anniversary' return!

Room Tip: We stayed in the principal suite - first floor facing the front. Lovely!

Perfect place to stay in the old town of Marbella! Staff is very friendly and helpful and very caring Desiree makes you feel so welcome from beginning to end.
Lovely fresh and homemade breakfast on the roof terrace is very relaxing and you can pass an hour or two in the sun.

If you are in Marbella, this is the place to stay. On the old part of the city, live in a divinely refurbished 1800 home. The staff are superb. They serve a great breakfast included with your reservation.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Francesa room.

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
