“Fab Hotel Not a bad word to say”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We just came back from staying at hotel kristal and i cant find any thing to complain about at all! The staff on reception are acceptionally helpful and friendly and the staff in the restaurant also. The rooms were clean comfortable and just right for what we wanted. The hotel is central location about 5 minutes (if that) walk to Torremonlions Train station and 5 minutes to San miguell street where it all happens! Yes there is alot of steps down to the beach but there is a option of using a lift for 50 cents. We will defo be goin back and very soon!

I booked this hotel for a 2 night stay this August. As it is advertised as a 3 star I was hoping to receive clean and comfortable place to sleep with decent facilities......I found the complete opposite!

1 The hotel is in a terrible location. It is a good 20 min uphill walk from the beach. It is located in the middle of a noisy smelly market.

2 The hotel reception looked modern and revamped but then you get to your room and the nightmare begins.
First of all no beds but old falling-apart cots. Found more than one thick black hair in the bed sheets.
The floor tiles had lots of cracks. Only one working power socket in toilet. Cockroach running on the floor. Windows could not be closed properly and safely. Almost impossible to sleep for continuos noise both day and night.

3 You only have free wifi on the 4th floor . There you can find a bar and a restaurant where they serve lunch and dinner. After the bedroom experience I did not even want to give a chance to the buffet!

In the same week of holiday I stayed in 1 star hotels that were far better in quality of service and cleanliness than this fake 3 star.

I hate to give a poor review because the hotel staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful, but the locations was not good and I did not feel safe. We had three nights reserved and only stayed one night because it was so noisy! Rooms were really small, and felt unsafe. There was no T.V. remote in the room since there was so much theft and the safe was broken. :( Although it was clean, the area around the hotel was crowded, dirty and graffiti ridden. I've stayed in other Torremolinos locations that were much nicer and I wouldn't reccomend Kristal to travelers.

The Kristal Hotel is perfect for anyone who wants to spend more money making the most of their holiday and not in the hotel. That being said, it's still very nice to spend time in. The staff are extremely friendly and are always happy to help. The service is very good and rooms are cleaned every day. The rooms have air conditioning and also a safe. There is also Wi-Fi available in the hotel. The room of course also has a nice toilet and shower with plenty of towels and other little things provided. The only thing that I can that is bad about the room is that it only has one plug socket, so if you a lot of electrical equipment to charge, bring an extension of some sort. The hotel is working lifts so it's easy to get to your room. The hotel is very clean and the entrance looks very nice. You won't believe you went there for such a cheap price! The only thing I wouldn't recommend is their breakfast. The breakfast is very plain, like cereal, toast and cake. If you're fine with that, then it's not a problem. The hotel is located is a very nice place next to a market place with loads of very nice shops. There are also plenty of places to eat for cheap, including a Burger King. There are also very nice kebab shops. The location is also perfect because it is 1 minute from the train station, so you can take a train directly from Malaga airport (10 minute journey) and then walk 1 minute to the hotel. The cost of the train is very cheap too, I think around 2 euros or less.

Overall this is definitely a fantastic hotel considering how much you're paying. You will not be disappointed!

Sheena. I felt the need to write a review due to all the bad one's it's had in the past! Staff were lovely and very friendly, rooms adequate and cleaned everyday. One of the bed's collapsed when we were there and they moved us to a new room immediately. PERFECT location and we would definitely stay again. Great value for money if your on a budget. And all rooms have lovely air con :)

Room Tip: Did not comment on Swimming pool or Fitness centre as N/A. We just had room only and that was fine s...

I stayed at hotel krystal for a week bed and breakfast, what do you expect for the price. The rooms were clean and the staff very friendly. Hotel was in ideal location near shops and restaurants and a few minutes from the beach.

It did what it said on the tin and what are people expecting from a budget hotel, will be back next year
