Second stay at this hotel in last two years. Absolutely fantastic location, 2 minutes from old town and the beach. Weather was great, food in all restaurants we are in was wonderful. The breakfast in the hotel was better than previous visit with introduction of hot plates with egg, bacon, sausages and mushrooms. Our room has just been refurbished (504)...

We took a black car to get to the hotel at 02:00am. Front desk is opened 24/7 which is really convenient. We found the staff very friendly all along our stay. Very polite and smiling all the time. Hotel has very recently refreshed rooms and everything is very clean. Situated in the center of Marbella, in front of the Dali...

We’ve just returned from a short break (Wednesday to Sunday) at the Hotel San Cristobal in Marbella. This was our second visit and the standards are still as high as ever. The reception staff were ever willing to help with advice regarding local places to visit and details of bus timetables as ever. Breakfast was the standard buffet continental meats,...

If you are looking for a well located and reasonable priced place to stay, then this is the place. If you are however looking for a quiet hotel ie no road noise, you may find this location is not for you, but if u keep your balcony door closed then you wouldn't notice any noise. Within a few minutes walk,...

We stayed there one night as the tour bus picked us up at the San Cristobal. The general-manager was a great host. The rate was great the room clean and nice. Great location also for touring and shopping and access to the Mediterranean!

I have stayed at this hotel a few times with no significant problems up to and including May 2016, and I particularly enjoyed my visit to Marbella last August. However, I was puzzled that one of the waiters in the dining room was refusing to allow me to charge to my room when I had always done so on previous...

Superb location. Reception staff excellent and WiFi really good. Room was great as well. Only downside was the bar/restaurant, it was souulless and very unappealing. This wasn't a problem per seas there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby but it would have been handy for a nightcap

I must agree with the other reviews I've seen about the perfect location and good pricing. The staff also tries very hard to please you. It's not the most modern or fancy place but I'd return there anytime. When we decided to stay a few extra days on the warm beach and dry out from the wet cool days in...
