“Basic hotel in Central Marbella”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

My partner and I stayed in the Central Hotel for one week in April 2013. The best recommendation I could give this hotel is its location; very central, just a couple of minutes walk from the old town. The accommodation is very basic, the weather was cold at the time and our room was freezing, we kept asking for more blankets and in the end we were given an electric heater. The breakfast is minimal but we went out for breakfast every morning. The staff were friendly and helpful. Lacking in atmosphere!

Lovely little hotel, nice room tastefully decorated, pleasant staff, very reasonably priced. It’s located on a narrow little pedestrian street with several other 2-star hotels and pensions, and lots of plants and foliage everywhere, and it’s quiet since there are no cars. A simple breakfast was included (coffee, croissant, juice). You can’t get to it by car, but there’s an underground parking about a 5-minute walk away.

It is 2 star so you get what you pay for. It's a hotel to put your head down for the night or use to explore Marbella. Near the beach and old town. Breakfast is below average fried eggs that had been cooked hours ago and put in hot tray.

we stayed here for six nights in march. The hotel is based in the old town which was lovely a two minute walk took you to bars, restaurants, supermarket and shops. Five minutes to beach and bus stops. Although the weather was awful while we were here, we still had a lovely time, We visited all the sites of the old town and had a day trip to Gibralter, which was booked through the hotel only cost 16 euros each. We had been to Marbella previously and the weather was roasting. The resort looks so different when the sun is out and the beach is lovely shallow waters. Hoping to go back and would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms have a patio area.

We stayed here for a week Easter 2012. Great boutique style hotel, we loved it. Rooms always clean, breakfasts great and location couldn't be better. Its on a narrow pedestrian street so no traffic noise. Walk to the top of the street, across the road - the old town. Walk to the bottom of the street, across the road - the beach! And you are right at the start of the promenade round to Puerto Banus. We also walked through the lovely park to the bus station and, turning the other way, we walked to the massive shopping centre - though be warned - we do like walking, not everyone could do this. THis hotel was a little oasis. The roof top terrace is basic but with great views - when you are so near the beach why wouold you want a pool. And the smallness of the hotel means it is much more personal. Would go back definitely.

We booked for 1 night and stayed 11, such was the homely, friendly atmosphere and a great town in Marbella.
The hotel is well positioned for the old town and the beach promenade - the best part of Marbella - forget plastic Puerto Banus.
The ladies on reception were delightful which really makes a 2 star hotel seem and feel much more.
The rooms are a good size, very clean, comfortable and quiet.
The value, certainly in February, was excellent...remember it is a 2 star. If you just want to be in town this is a great option.
Wi-fi worked excellently..BBC 1 and 2 as well and a nice cooked bacon and egg breakfast..

Lovely ground floor comfort room, tastefully decorated with garden terrace as well. Excellent location and value for money? Ideal place to stay if visiting the charming old town of marbella can be difficult to find as located in a quiet small street so ensure you have directions

Room Tip: Comfort room on the ground floor
