we had a nice room with balcony at the street side... with a perfect view of the fountains. Since we were participating in the Marbella-4DAY WALK-event we were away most of each day. as to be expected we were not the only walkers, which led to rush-hour each morning at breakfast, and sometimes even a struggle to get all breakfast-ingredients...

Staff was very helpful generally: arranged tickets to local attractions including Alhambra that were otherwise not available. Staff had also emailed very specific driving directions that were crucial to finding the hotel due to road access restrictions and for which GPS and Google Maps were...

This hotel is in a great location close to beach and just on old town which is beautiful. It overlooks a main road and a park....but surprisingly the road is very busy and you do not hear any traffic noise...good double glazing!! It is a really good basic base to explore from. The rooms are dated but clean and spacious....
