I have stayed at this hotel a few times with no significant problems up to and including May 2016, and I particularly enjoyed my visit to Marbella last August. However, I was puzzled that one of the waiters in the dining room was refusing to allow me to charge to my room when I had always done so on previous...

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

Dear Andrew, Thank you very much for posting about your stay! We agree with you, the location is great and the staff is very friendly. We have fiber optic so the Internet is usually very fast. If you come next time I recommend you to taste our daily menus, for only 12.50€ you will enjoy our Mediterranean Cusine. Kind regards,

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 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.

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.
