“Perfect boutique hotel”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

Great experience at the town house, they've got the formula right for a perfect boutique hotel. Clean and quaint the townhouse is situated in the old town which is a beautiful part of Marbella. The hotel is totally in keeping with the area, great location.

The staff are all lovely and friendly without being on top of you (I hate that small hotel thing where the owners are all over you when they see you at breakfast). Perfect combination of offering help and assistance and leaving us alone when on our holiday. The included breakfast was perfect, all fresh veg and breads, meats and cheese just wonderful! My only small comment would be they should aim to cover the food as it is on a counter in the bar although there was not an insect or fly in sight it's just my preference that I would have the food covered.

Rooms are small but clean and beautifully decorated with charm and air con was great.

There is an honesty bar which is a nice touch and the bar at the hotel which gets set up in the afternoon is lovely. Great per dinner drinks in the square and the girl running the bar was wonderful.

There is no gym which I wouldn't expect there to be for a boutique hotel but I do note that hotel Claude which is a competitor of the town house offers discounted access to their guests to the local o2 wellness centre with fitness studio and pool. This would be a nice touch for the the townhouse to do to.

Really nothing negative to say and would stay there again as my first / second choice in Marbella Or hotel Claude if I wanted gym access.

The Town House is a small and genuine hotel with only 10 rooms, and it is perfectly located central in the quiet and charming old town of Marbella. 5 mins walk to the beach on one side, and 5 mins walk to the Orange Square on the other side.

The hotel is modern, but still has managed to keep a laid back and nice atmosphere. Every room is unique (I believe), and rooms are light and delicate. Comfy beds, small but private bathrooms of excellent standard, TV and A/C. Some of the rooms have private balconies, but much more appreciated was the hotel roof terrace which were available for all guests. “Nice-price” self-service with softdrinks, wines and beers on the roof-terrace made it an excellent place to relax in the sun or at nighttime.

Breakfast was in no way extravagant, but everything is fresh and delicate, and you get everything you need. The breakfast room was small and cozy, and you’re also able to bring your breakfast to the roof terrace if you prefer. The Town House does not offer a restaurant, but have a bar with a selection of smaller dishes available with your drinks of choice.

The staff are mostly Swedish, all friendly and helpful. The Town House is a quiet and charming hotel with very nice atmosphere. An excellent choice, especially for couples, and we will definitive use the same hotel on our next stay in Marbella!

Room Tip: Rooms 9 and 10 is on the top floor, just next to the roof terrace...

This was a lovely quaint town house and very central being within the Orange Quarter and a short stroll to the beach. Its a great base from which to explore.
Unfortunately at the time of my visit I became really ill and the proprietor, a lovely Swedish lady, could not have been lovelier or more helpful.
No main meals here .... breakfast is very low key but the rooms are small, but lovely and the great location.
I would love to return when I'm on form and take advantage of this great little place again.

This is the place to bring someone you really like. It's a small and very personal place. Its very homy but not too personal. You never feel that the professional team is too much, they balance very well on the fine line of good service and attention. Rooms are small, clean and neat. Bathrooms with shower is perfectly enough. Aircon and even a small balcony ( room 2 ) .
Nice top roof honesty bar!
The breakfast is just perfect, the location could not be better - once you found it. The Hotel is sourrounded by good restaurants and the team knows them all. We tryed 3 of their proposals and were happy with all of them. Parking is few minutes walking away and costed € 18 per night.
