We have just returned from a holiday at the Hotel Central, Márbella. We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel - it is one of several nearby that are located on small, quiet lanes within easy walking distance of the old town. Also easily accessible on foot is the sea front and promenade - ideally located. A good addition...

I'm a bit of a hotel snob, so I was very anxious booking this hotel. I was in Marbella for a few days for a wedding so I just needed somewhere to get my head down and get ready. I had a twin room overlooking the lower courtyard and local housing. The room was spacious, modern and had a lovely...

Stayed there for a few days with a friend and if you bear in mind that this is not a 5 star hotel you're in for a great surprise! The hotel is perfectly located at walking distance from everything and the rooms are clean and the service is quite good! I loved the street in which the hotel was gave...

Went away for a 4 day break and chose this hotel due to location and cost. I didn't want a typical Brit abroad hotel with karaoke and pool etc as travelling without out kids and short break. Hotel was in the old town.. Very pretty narrow old street which was approx 30 metres from main road so easy for taxi...

Showed up my self in the morning to make the payment. The lady at reception claimed she spoke little English. She never spoke in English to me. I asked about the reservation I...

For the price I couldn't fault it - except the view over a neighbours back yard! clean room, helpful staff, wifi, decent breakfast, central location......BUT be prepared very difficult to find and you have a 100 metre walk from where the taxi drops you off or a 500 metre walk from the car park if you are self drive -...

could not fault this hotel in anyway. Amazing value, very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were stylish and spacious with immaculately kept decor. Breakfast was simple and sufficient to start the day. The location was perfect, only 2 minute walk to the old town and 3 minute stroll to the beach front. Hotel is tucked away down a side street...

We booked this hotel for a mini break as wanted a boutique style hotel, but didn't want to spend a fortune. Overall the stay was excellent. The bed was very comfy, breakfast was ample and the staff were very friendly. The roof terrace was a good find, with great views of the surrounding area, especially at sunset with a €1...

Just got back from Marbella, where we stayed in the Hotel Central, in The Old town - mainly due to how cheap it was! So impressed with the room, it was vintage, clean, boutique and lovely for couples and friends. Breakfast was included, which was basic but ideal. Very close to the beach and the gorgeous picturesque streets of the...
