    Centrally located dated hotel

    This hotel is centrally located but my floor was dated with room that required renovation. Staff tried to sell a superior room at extra cost and when declined put me in a dingy room but had to plea for allotting the exact room booked through Overall bad experience!, please be aware of reputational damage.

    Happy days in Marbella

    The hotel is in the best possible location of Marbella . As such there is paid parking very close , otherwise it is a 15 minute walk. The beach and town gardens are in front of the hotel and I enjoyed the evenings greatly as there is as much or as little to do as one wants . Hotel restaurant is excellent with many other good establishments in walking distance . The old town area is within metres of the hotel so as to wander round all the alleys with much to see. Greatly recommended !

    Visit beautiful Marbella

    The hotel has the best possible location in Marbella: on one side a nice park and the beach, and on the other a picturesque old town. The people in the hotel were very friendly and supportive. The room was OK, as well as the hotel facilities.

    Well located, cheap and decent

    All good and as expected. Central location. Warm welcome at reception. Room was fine (a little dated), but clean. For the price, in central Marbella, in August it’s a great option.

    Very good value

    Basic hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room very clean comfortable. Walls a little thin maybe for noise but it was never a problem. Breakfast wasn’t up to our standard so we ate out. Enjoyed our stay and was very good value for money. Would recommend it

    We were there during the coronavirus stand still and they were very helpful and accommodating to all visitors stranded in Marbella. In difficult times and seeing so many travellers with no accommodation to stay, it was a great relieve being there. Thank you!
