“Very basic hotel with very thin walls.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2011

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.

We went to a trip to Colmenar and stayed for lunch at the hotel Belen. The food was very good and very cheap, al healthy and tasty 'menú del dia'.
We left a bag with our cellphone, books and other stuff. When I phoned them to ask if they could send it to our place in Torremolinos - at our costs of cause - they asked for our addres and a few days later we found our things in the mailbox!

This Hotel is one of two in the town of Colmenar and is the one the locals seem to favour. The pricing is extraordinarily good, the rooms very comforable and the food excellent.

There is more info on the their web site http://www.hotel-belen.com

It is one of 2 hotels in Colmenar, about 30 miles north of Malaga. It is popular with cyclists ( which we were ) because of its position on the route between Granada and Antequera. It is one of only 2 restaurants in the town too. It is not a distinctive building from outside, but the rooms are quite large and comfortable and parts of the hotel have real character. The bar/ dining room is locked in the morning until about 9.12am, and there is the amusing sight of guests sat on the pavement terrace waiting for it to open, the signal for which is a diverse group of locals suddenly converging on the place which then suddenly becomes a fascinating hive of activity. A good insight to rural Spain.
