The location is perfect in the very centre of Torremolinos within 150yds of the bustling pedestrian centre . To be fair the price was ok, I stayed bed & breakfast for 2 nights and was not impressed by the food on offer , although the rooms were ok, again for the price very basic but reasonably clean ,the staff were...

Very nicely done reception area, promises good things to come, but not so. Awful place. Clean, but extremely basic and very strange shaped rooms with not enough lighting. Small window looking on to a noisy street. Breakfast buffet not good either. Once tried...never repeated.

The only good thing about this hotel is the location. It is a rabbit warren of ill lit corridors. Its noisy and has far more than the 129 rooms it advertises - maybe only 129 of the 400 rooms are inhabitable. It is accessed from a shopping alleyway that has a distinctive whiff of sewers. The bathroom of 233 could...

Stayed for 3 nights before going home after staying in Hotel Palmasol, Benalmadena for 7 nts h/b ( never again, read my review about that hotel here ). The hotel is basic but clean and adequate for a few days stop-over. The rooms, wardrobe and bathroom were twice the size of the previous 3 star hotel we stayed at and...

After reading the reviews for this hotel after booking I was dreading my stay at the kristal. We booked for a cheap week away and the hotel was a pleasant surprise. It is a typical town centre hotel which suffers from a lack of pool and balconies however the rooms are of a good quality, the staff are excellent and...

Me and 3 friends stayed here in August and we thought the hotel was going to be ok but it quickly proved to be not very good. Our rooms were not cleaned and our towels were never changed despite requesting it so. The reception desk would not give us 2 keys to the room. The hotel was noisy with 2...

I booked with low cost holidays a hotel room with balcony or terrace for 4 nights. On my arrival I was infomed that five out of 127 rooms have balcony and the receptionist blamed low cost holidays for misinformation. In my opinion this accomodation was no more than a hostel and definitely not 3 star. As my husband is disabled...

You get what you pay for. As mentioned before do not expect a 5* hotel for a 3* price. plus: - Rooms are basic but air conditioned - location great: train and bus station in minutes (no need to pay for transfer as train from the airport to hotel is perfect and cheap), to the beach 10-15min nice walk -...

Agree with all the other recent reviews. Next time if I stayed here I would go room only and eat out at the merry friar or Irish bars for breakfast ( E3.90 for basic full English at merry friar) and many other good cafes and restaurants for dinner nearby instead. Best value trip was bus to Mijas from bus stop...
