We stayed here during a week long cycling tour. Unfortunately, when we arrived in town on a Tuesday afternoon, all the reastaurants were closed (including Hotel Belen) so we foraged for food at the nearby market. We tried to go to bed early, but could not sleep due to the paper thin walls (I could hear our neighbor's cell phone ring, and later incessant snoring) and the hotel was quite full, so we heard doors slamming and locking all night long. If you want quiet and ambiance, this is not the place to go.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Belen is a modern family run hotel situated in the beautiful pueblo blanco (white village) of Colmenar on the western side of the of the spectacular Axarquia region inland from Malaga. Only recently completed, it provides extremely comfortable accommodation at very reasonable cost. The hotel is approximately 30 minutes drive from Malaga airport, Torre del Mar and Antiquerra - ideally suited for exploring 'Real Spain' and yet only half an hour from the sea. Booking may be made by either telephone or fax. However, as not all the staff speak english, we suggest that non-spanish speakers fax enquiries to avoid misunderstandings! There is currently no email facility in the hotel, but bookings may also be arranged through Rio Estates in Riogordo - email bookings to firstname.lastname@example.org ... more less
