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. The staff are happy and make an effort to accommodate you. I used the bed and breakfast option then wandered around Marbella for...

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. The hot breakfast was very poor, cold...

The hotel is cventrally located in front of the Old Town and about 250 metres from the promenade down the Dali Sculpture Memorial.....whatch out it is very slippery when wet! The hotel is general hotel serving business people and tourists alike. It is a little careworn but improvements are in progress. (The lifts were being done whilst we were there.)...

What a pity that this hotel has been left in the dark ages. It is in a fabulous position, with the park out front and the beach a 7 min walk away. You also have some of the finest restaurants you could wish for, right behind. But the Hotel! Accessed via a rather tricky escalator, lethal in the wet, the...

Stayed here for 2 night break on our New Year Holiday. Booked this Hotel for its location as it is perfectly situated beside Old Town and on the main street.
