Pablo’s apartment is as shown in his photos. It is located just on the edge of Old Town Marbella, walking distance to shopping and restaurants. It’s the first small alleyway off of a main road but you do not see or hear the traffic. Perfect location. I would recommend this apartment to those looking to be close to Old Town Marbella.
Here are some things to know. It is a penthouse apartment in an old building that has been renovated with a small rooftop terrace that overlooks the clock tower which is a really nice view. There are two full flights of stairs to get to the apartment (and another to get to two king bedrooms inside) and carrying heavy luggage can be difficult for some especially if you are elderly. It is definitely not handicap accessible. Check in with Tina went well. We needed to drop off our luggage before the apartment was ready. Tina was very accommodating and allowed us to leave our things. We were then able to do a little sightseeing and have lunch in town. The apartment was very clean.
The prior guests used all the towels and extra sheets so everything needed to be washed. Tina washed all the linens and hung them out to dry. I told her we would put them on the beds when we returned. I didn’t have a problem with that. We were out most of the time we visited Marbella and only came back to sleep. The bedrooms on the top floor have a slanted ceiling where you cannot stand upright in half the room. The storage for clothing in one of the rooms was hard to access along the floor where the ceiling meets. But since we were only there two nights we didn’t need to unpack our suitcases. We are happy to have been able to stay in Pablo’s place. Although we never met, communication between Pablo and myself was very easy and I can see that he is a very nice man by his words. Thank you for letting us stay at your place Pablo. I would love to return one day.
We had a fab time at Pablo’s penthouse. It was clean, spacious and in an excellent spot right near the orange square in Marbella old town. Tina the host was very accommodating and helpful and helped us with lots of extras and added that extra special touch to our stay. I’ll definitely be back x
Pablo's place is very nice and fresh! We were 5 girlfriends who stayed there and the penthouse was great for us, (perfect with 2 bathrooms). The location was great, super close to Old Town and the beach. The only thing is the terrace, the view is beautiful but it's too hot to be up there before 8-9 pm. Such a shame since it's a nice spot and we would of love to spend more time up there. The wifi was really good and Pablo's recommendations of restaurants also good. Easy cab ride from Malaga Airport, aprox €80.
We had an amazing stay at Marbella and this apartment had a lot to do with it ! it started perfectly with fresh beers, fruits and snacks waiting for us, which were more than appreciated especially with the high temperatures. We were also pleased to see that the place was fully furnished (shower gel, towels, sheets...) and that we could start enjoying our stay (i.e. going to the beach) without the need to go straight shopping The apartment has also a great location (we didn't have any car), the beach is less than 5 min walk, you have a supermarket really close, and the area is very cute with many stores and restaurants, all of that in a real labyrinth of charming tiny narrow streets (maps are available at the apartment). And last but not least you're also close from many bars and club and it's a real pleasure to be able to go out without the need to drive :) Again, thank you very much Pablo!
What a lovely apartment!
I wanted to find an apartment in Old Town as the charm is second to none, the apartment was perfectly situated close to a road but also round the corner from the hustle and bustle of the winding traffic free streets, restaurants and bars.
The apartment catered well for 3 ladies and the two bathrooms were great! It would easily cater 6 people without feeling too cramped!
The kitchen is full of useful utensils and everything was very clean and tidy.
The beds were comfortable however maybe a couple of extra pillows could be useful, as well as cups / glasses to cater for the maximum number of guests.
The amenities were very good, the smart tv which also had access to Netflix was a great touch as was the balcony!
Pablo (along with Tina) have been great hosts, if I come back to Marbella I wouldn’t hesitate to book this apartment again.
Thanks for making the stay so hassle free.
Fantastic accommodation and great location, I would highly recommend staying here. Tina looked after us upon arrival and sorted pick up from the airport which was a nice touch.
Fabulous location, clean and well equipped. Would definately recommend it to friends. Everything on the doorstep.
