friendliest hotel ever

I stayed in February, and had a superior room overlooking the park. The position of the hotel is perfect. Everything is accessible on the doorstep. The hotel is in the middle of the old town and a short walk through the park brings you to the beach. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly and all speak excellent English. The set menu for evening meals is very reasonably priced and the food is good. Breakfast too has everything anyone could want.

The best thing about my stay was...

The lovely room and the position of the hotel.

Amazing location

The room was large and cleaned to a high standard in an amazing location right in the centre of Marbella and walking distance to the beach, old town and right next to taxis and bus stops if you want to head out further

Great Location and helpful staff

Stayed at this hotel for a long weekend B&B basis. it's a superb location in the centre of Marbella, the wonderful cobble streets and square of the old town with all its wonderful shops and restaurants are just behind the hotel. The taxi rank is the opposite side of the road to the hotel, there's a bus stop 200 yards outside the hotel to take you to Puerta Banus for the day/evening. The beach is 5 mins walk from the hotel, passing some fabulous Tapas restaurants that I would highly recommend trying. The lovely Marina bars are also 10 mins walk away for late nights drinks and the ferry to Puerta Banus. The continental b/fast at the hotel was fine, with cold meats/cheeses, bread/toast/cereal, fruit and also bacon, sausage and eggs available. We did have a problem borrowing an iron, as there were only 2 available and they were both out but they weren't sure which rooms - but really is this such an issue, just worth a mention. We had our own wine in the room and the staff were great supplying us with glasses and ice for a "make doo" ice bucket. Rooms were made up with fresh towels each day and there was a prompt service at the reception desk, always helpful. No pool at the hotel, which is always a nice addition. For a weekend stay/short break it was excellent and an ideal location. Would definitely use this hotel again on a return visit.

Everything perfect

We stayed in the hotel for one week, and we really enjoyed every minute.. The breakfast was great and also internet connection was brilliant.. The best thing about this hotel is location, you have got everything in short distance. But on the other hand we have found the hotel quite noisy.. We could hear noise from outside and other rooms especially on the weekends but overall everything was brilliant.

Great Location

This was our 8th annual trip to Marbella and our 3rd stay at San Cristobal. My only comment from this trip would be "Why do they need a Restuarant Manager for the evening meal service". The Restaurant Manager was only what I can describe as arrogant relating to us on our first evening that he had moved from a 5 star restaurant to San Cristobal so this Hotel was "easy". The worst service I received was when I was having an evening meal and the "Manager from a five star hotel" delivered my cutlery for my second course to the table followed by the meal whilst I was still eating my starter. We asked for it to be taken back to the kitchen and it was then returned cold once I had finished my starter. Rest of the staff very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Would certainly go again, maybe just try bed and breakfast.

Stay at San Cristobal - July 2012

Stayed in San Cristobal for five days in July. Room that we were given was looking out on to a back street overlooking the roofs of other shops and buildings. The room was dark and old fashioned and in need of a face lift. The stopper in the wash hand basin and bidet didn't work properly.Generally speaking I would say that the hotel was in need of serious re-decorating.We booked half board but in hindsight this was a mistake. While the breakfast was o.k., the dinner menu was a major disappointment for choice and quality. Overall I would consider it expensive for what was on offer.

The best thing about my stay was...

The location was very central, quite close to the beach and good for shopping.The rooms were cleaned on a daily basis. The staff were friendly and helpful.

San Cristobel

The San Cristobal is located right in the centre of Marbella's Old Town, from the hotel walk through the park and you are right on the prom and a great beach Venus Beach. The hotel is very spanish with lots of marble, the staff are also all spanish and were friendly and helpful. Our room was spaciour with a balcony on to the old town, plenty of wardrobe space, and two extra big single beds which were extremely comfortable. I would say that we could hear the people in rooms near us but on the whole our stay was great and we would not hesitate to return. For the value and location
