Just stayed here for six nights; you could not be closer to the Old Town and Orange Square - just walk out of the back door. The Beach and port are just 5 minutes walk. Very clean and comfortable room, the bathroom was slightly small; but don't forget it's a 3 Star. Breakfast Buffet was excellent, ate dinner one night... More

Very good hotel! Clean and simple. Even with out reservation we were able to find a room. Perfect location, in the center of Marbella and a few minutes from the sea. A room with two single beds is big for a hotel with its stars, very nice bathroom and big TV
