Hotel Hostal Marbella
Ranked #16 of 20 Fuengirola B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Stayed here with my boyfriend and our friend for 2 weeks in August 2011. This was out first trip to Europe, with that being said the staff was so friendly and informative for us. This location is conveniently located in the city with in walking distance to the beach, restaurants, nightlife and the train station. The room was a decent size and cleaned well everyday, but difficult moving around with 3 people. The hotel has a terrace on the roof, which was very nice to hang out and relax on. The lobby had fresh coffee every morning as well as light items to eat for breakfast.

The hotel is really located in a very good place however otherwise seems a bit overpriced to the service provided:
- the rooms are small and
- poorly isolate sound as you can hear all of your neighbors very well,
- the furniture works okay, however is quite old, cheap and doesn't look "well-groomed"
- the towels are not very-well washed or just too old so they are grey even when freshly changed.. and the maid leaves her long hair on them...
Do I'd say it's okay for a short stay - a night or two spending most of the time out on the beach or in the numerous bars of the town and only returning for sleep (not recommended for a romantic young couple however!)...

Thanks for comment, it helps us to be better.
In august you hardly find any hotel in Fuengirola with lower prices, its our high season and the hotel is always complete during this month. The buildings of a town house like ours make no possiblities to have larger rooms than 25 m2 which the biggest rooms are.
Regarding the towels, we are sorry and we have make a comment to the company who wash them.
Kind Regards from Hostal Marbella

Very nice small hotel in old part of city center, but just few steps from beach.
Pretty roof terrace and ground floor patio.
Rooms with almost everything what you need, soft beds, fully equipped bathroom, safety box, tv with good radio stations, air-conditioner and lovely balcony, but I really missed bathroom ventilator and anteroom light.
Reception crew, every single one, was very friedndly and helpfull and room always cleaned well.
Breakfast for 3,50 euro (every day same food, but i liked it, two kinds of bread rolls, butter, salami, cheese, strawberry and appricot jam, melon, orange juice, water, coffee and tea).
Nights are very noisy in Fuengirola, so is better to spent night at some of theirs amazing small pubs or at some club(mostly dance, only one rock club in whole town) and sleep at morning.
I can really recommend this hostal for nice vacation.

Stayed here for a relaxing holiday and it was..5 minutes to the beach and close to the busy city center though was in a quiet spot which suited me,bed was comfy and room was cleaned every day,spotless!very friendly and helpful staff,Didn't have to pay for safety deposit box unlike most hotels,only negative thing i can say is there is no kettle in room but i didnt mind because i was able to just go to the lounge area and make tea when i wanted it,would return again and again.

Thank you for your nice comments. We consider to place a kettle in the rooms, so maybe... next time you return you will find one.

Quite small hotel located in a good position. Close to the center of the city center, but not so noisy street. Close enough to the beach and easy to find.
Rooms were quite basic ones but tidy.
Some noise coming from the stairwell and street but did not disturb our nights.
Breakfast available for low price: bread, cheese, jamon, juice, coffee.

If you look for a modern hotel with all luxury services, this is a wrong address.
If you look for a neat hotel to sleep and live during your stay, this a good option.

If visiting Fuengirola again, I'll choose this hotel again.

I went to Fuengirola on my own and got this hotel on a really good offer, cheaper than the local hostels. Was impressed with the room, nice bathrooms, comfortable bed, plenty of space, good sized wardrobe and safe in each room. The bar was cheap and the lounge area downstairs accomodated for me by putting the football on (Euro 2012). Nice roof terrace as well to chill out. Close to local shops, bars and the bus and train stations and about a 3 minute stroll to the beach. Free Wifi is available and is very handy when abroad.

The owners/staff dealt with any issues (i.e. I didn't have a shower curtain when I arrived and had some difficulty with the safe) straight away and were really welcoming and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 208 had a balcony which was lovely, looking out onto the street.
