Superb location. Reception staff excellent and WiFi really good. Room was great as well. Only downside was the bar/restaurant, it was souulless and very unappealing. This wasn't a problem per seas there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby but it would have been handy for a nightcap

I was in marbella for a training for a month and this was an excellent place to stay. Right in the middle of old town marballa close to restaurants and the mediterranean. Clean and the folks who work there are fantastico. Plus a great price.

I must agree with the other reviews I've seen about the perfect location and good pricing. The staff also tries very hard to please you. It's not the most modern or fancy place but I'd return there anytime. When we decided to stay a few extra days on the warm beach and dry out from the wet cool days in...

This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in in Marbella centre! It is in the most PERFECT location, a drive from the airport it costs €60 to get there (we arrived late and couldn't work out the buses) On arrival check in was good, however they tried to give us 3 single beds for 2 adults & a...

This is a great little hotel in the best possible location. Not on the busy seafront strip but overlooking a nice park and only a couple of hundred metres from the sea. Rooms are nicely decorated, most with a spacious balcony. Ideal.

Great location in the old centre town of Marbella. A little vintage but clean and cosy. We asked for a quiet room, but it was really noisy from our neighbours. Also, it was noise in the hotel because they were working on changing a lift. The staff was friendly.

Just got home from another stay in this hotel, as always it was just right. The price you pay is very good considering you are in the middle of Marbella, i would not consider staying anywhere else. The staff are happy and make an effort to accommodate you. I used the bed and breakfast option then wandered around Marbella for...

As many have said the location cant be faulted, minutes from the old town and the sea front. On the down side its in need of updating, the rooms are dull and showing signs of ageing as is the plumbing. The hotel is noisy, its from the street, the corridors and adjacent rooms. The hot breakfast was very poor, cold...
