Hotel San Cristobal
Ranked #24 of 70 Hotels in Marbella
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2012

We stayed 2 nights here and the location is fantastic - 2 minutes to the orange square.
You go in through a shopping centre. Staff were fantastic and the room was very large. Basic but this is a budget hotel so you get what you pay for.
Would definately go back if going for a weekend however no pool and so wouldn't stay for any longer.
Parking is close byhowever its 15 euros for 24hours

I have just returned from 3 days in Marbella and my 6th time at Hotel San Cristobal. It's a great little hotel in the heart of Marbella and you can choose from loads of shops and restaurants or simply walk to the beach within a few minutes. The rooms are spacious and clean and the breakfast which is included is brilliant. I highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel San Cristobal is an excellant place to stay. It is friendly, clean with very friendly and helpful staff. It is situated in the heart of Marbella with easy access to many delightful spots for you to visit. The meals are excellant and very good value. We have visited the hotel for at least 10 years and would recommend it to anyone. It is family friendly and also would suit couples of any age. The prices vary according to season but we find it is good value for money.
If you want to explore you will find easy access to mosy areas either by bus or taxi which are not overly expensive. Try it for yourself and enjoy.

Room Tip: The upper rooms are very good, quiet and with balcony.

Just returned from a great 4 night visit to marbella , the San Cristobal hotel was a really central location for a winter break , while visiting the costa del sol. The staff at this 3 star hotel were always very helpfull at all times , and we all enjoyed our stay at this venue which is in a great position for the , Old Town, and the beach area. The Marbella Old Town , we never get bored with, some great tapas bars and friendly people, give this area a visit its great. Neil ayr

The hotel is located in the very middle of Marbella, which is a very good benefit for those, who plan to stay for short and has things to do in Marbella city center. You can reach from here everything important. The only advantage is it's disadvantage also: the hotel rooms (especiallyy which are looking to the main road) are very very loud, no silent not even for a minute, you can hear the traffic jam, the people walking down on the road and so on. It's really very loud! Until our 7 days stay we could barely get a long sleep, since the spanish mentality is, that people start to go out in the evening from 8 oclock or even later, they also get to bed later, so there won't be any silent till 2 oclock in the morning. The rooms are okay, the price is kinda high compared to the quality. The staff barely speaks english.

Room Tip: Rooms looking to the main street are NOT recommended.

Great location by the Old Town and 500 metres from beach. Staff were friendly and efficient. Bedroom was large, clean and comfortable and opened out onto a small balcony and there was a good sized bathroom with an excellent shower and bath. The breakfast was excellent, comprising hot and cold buffet. Our room faced the busy street and overlooked the Alameda Park but there was surprisingly little or no street noise. Excellent value for money.
