    Location 9.7 /10

    The San Cristobal hotel is one of the rare hotels of the historical downtown of Marbella. It is located in full downtown, on the edge of the street that crosses over the entire city. It is located 31 miles away from Malaga airport. Count between 35 and 50 minutes to get here.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The rooms are small and not really welcoming. The floor is covered, you can choose between carpet, hardwood floor or paving (in majority). The decoration is minimal: just a few floral paintings and, in some of the rooms, and an alcove. However, they offer an appropriate comfort. All the rooms are air-conditioned and they are equipped with satellite TV, an electronic safe (paying) and a telephone with direct line. Even if they are small, the bathrooms offer a bathtub, a bidet, a washbasin embedded in a marble table and toilets. Some of the rooms offer a balcony but with no interesting view, even squandered by an important vis-a vis with the building located opposite.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Open in 1982, the San Cristobal is a very simple hotel, where you can enter through the first floor, through a shopping centre. The reception is very small and quite old. It is decorated in the 70s style - black veined marble, yellow paintings and the dark stairs. The access to the 97 rooms is being done through long sinuous corridors, with neon light, with carpet floor that decreases the noise when you walk by. The small structure makes it a very friendly establishment, very visited by French and Spanish.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The restaurant is located on the second floor of the hotel. This is a dining-room of 100 guests decorated by green plants. Small tables of 4 people are all over the place in the dining-room. The meals are served as very simple buffets, while for lunch and dinner there is a menu. The choice is limited to two or three starters, two dishes (meat or fish) and just a little more desserts. No need to mention that here you are far from the quality of a gastronomic restaurant!

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The closest beach is the Playa de la Venus located in full downtown. Covered by black sand, it lays out on 1,640 ft. A tight space, quickly packed out in summer season. You will find showers, beach chairs and mattresses, a snack as well as a boat club if you want to practice different sports like pedalo or windsurfing. If you want to run away from this very urban and noisy environment, you can take the bus and sunbathe on more peaceful beaches.

    To know

    If you want to stay away from the noise of the large street bordering the hotel, ask for a room located on an upper level or one overlooking the sidewalk that passes by behind the hotel.

        L'hôtel est au c?ur du centre ville, non loin du vieux Marbella et une agréable promenade de 300 mètres à travers le Parque de Alameda et la Avenida del Mar vous amènera tranquillement jusqu'à la plage. Les chambres disposent du confort nécessaire à un séjour de plusieurs nuits et le restaurant tenu par un personnel efficace offre une carte assez variée.

      • Advantages

        Le Wifi. Le cadre parfait pour ceux qui aiment les soirées animées et les hôtels proches de toutes les boutiques vitales aux fashion victims. Le personnel polyglotte est aux petits soins.

      • Disavantages

        L'accès par une galerie marchande est relativement compliqué et l'hôtel ne dispose que de quelques places réservées dans un parking public situé à 300 mètres.

      A small decent establishment that rather focuses on conviviality than on comfort. It will seduce golf beginners and small budget people seeking out of date charm. In return, the beaches are quite far away.

      If you want to spend active holidays, you should choose this very conventional hotel, half-way between the club-hotel and the animated hotel. It offers lots of sports activities and games, on the site or on the verge of the sea.

      This little family-oriented establishment is located at the heart of Marbella, a few metres from the beach. It is a rather modest establishment that stands out for its friendly atmosphere and the French cuisine served in its refined restaurant. The facilities on offer are a bit poor and there is not much in the way of leisure activities.

      Our opinion: this is the best hotel in the area. This establishment, member of the ''Leading Hotels of the World'' has been conceived like a traditional Andalusian village. Its comfort, the catering and its tennis club make it a great location for gourmets, sports lovers...and the jet-set.

      The Vincci Estrella del Mar is a luxury hotel located 5 miles from Marbella, at the heart of the Costa del Sol. Admittedly it's not on the seafront but we did like the free Internet access, the various swimming pools, the spa, the spacious and comfortable guest rooms, and the three restaurants. A free shuttle bus takes guests to the beach club 5 minutes away. A select and trendy place where you'll find the spa and two of the restaurants, as well as a superb beach.
