Hotel was very well located, easy to get around from here. Staff was very unhelpful, bordering on rude.
the staff,cleaner,frindly,location,room location nice view none
right in the old center of Marbella, exellent value for money
very nice breakfast,hotel location excellent. a lot of traffic noise when window/door is open
We had a warm welcome and the lady receptionist spoke good English. I asked for a nice view and we had a superb view of the mountains from our room. Everything was very clean. Good selection for breakfast. Some of the receptionists do not speak good English. Tea/coffee making facilities would be an improvement, and possibly a small fridge. The instructions for using the air conditioner were not very good.
excellent value considering you are in marbella and only one block away from the beach! nice breakfast/dining area, definitely would recommend. they offer parking but we just did it ourselves, literally the next driveway and 12 euro/day. (although a car is not really needed)
The hotel was very well placed to explore the old town of Marbella.It was also just a short walk to the beach.It was great for us as we were just stopping over for a night on our way home.
The location of the Princesa Playa is it's best feature. Only 3 minutes walk and you are in the Old Town of Marbella, with its charming narrow streets and restaurants. For people who like to do some cooking at "home", it is ideal with the kitchenette and microwave, and the Opencore is just around the corner for groceries. The wiev from our balcony over the sea and the beach promenade is great. If you get tired of the beach they have a nice small heated pool on the rooftop. Some people have complained about thin walls and noise, but from our room (108) we could only hear the elevator in the hallway, no noise from surrounding rooms. The only downpoint on our part, was that one morning there was no hot water for our shower, and the sunchair on the rooftop was no good.
Location: on the beach and a short walk to the charming old town , if you are lucky to get seaview room the panorama is great
Location I felt the hotel was slightly dated
The pool and bar area
This hotel is all about the location. It could not be located in a better position and considering its location it is fantastic value for money. It's not luxurious but it is absolutely all that is required. The hotel is very, very, very clean. Rooms were cleaned to such a high standard every day. the staff were very helpful. We would stay there again without hesitation. Infact we would not stay anywhere else especially if the rates remained at such a reasonable price.
Location, 2 terraces, spacious room and bathroom, nice kitchen Cleanness of tools in kitchen.
location staff could have been friendlier
i like this hotel very much, the hotel staff was excellent, the rooms were clean and confortable, the view from the breakfast room was amazing...
The location We were a party of seven people and we had to carry our luggage from an to the rooms. Bell service is not available during our check in and check out time.
good location, friendly staff, lots of restaurants around hotel, lovely pool, clean room, highly recommended!
It was in a very quiet residential area close to Marbella old town and Orange Square. Very traditional Spanish and very helpful owners. Better TV reception would have been useful
The hotel is very central and the staff are so friendly and accomodating.
pleasant staff, big bed, nice large room, excellant location No coffee available from room service so tea.coffee making facilities in room would be good. Cleanliness of room not the best.
Free internet connection Lack of a bar!
I appreciated the helpfulness of the staff. They were excellent in assisting us during our stay. Upon returning to Spain, I would love to stay there again.
Really friendly staff. Great location right in the old town. Clean and simple - perfect for some traditional spanish vacationing.
Once found the position Very hard to find needs more direction, have to park and walk although not too far
Great hotel - central, beautifully decorated, clean, and the staff couldn't have done more. An absolute find. More of a boutique 4* than a 2*
Beautiful small hotel with very warm welcome from reception staff. Room very well decorated and bed comfortable. Would definitely book here again if visiting Marbella. Breakfast was designed for tourists, I would have preferred authentic Spanish Breakfast
The hotel was very well located on a quiet residential street that had great access to the promenade and beach and the old town area. Although basic it was very clean, modern, well appointed and decorated, and despite the location of convenience very quiet as well. The staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel provides excellent value for money for those not in need of a bar and swimming pool The towels were a bit tired and rough but on mentioning this they were replaced with better ones.
Nice place, close to the old town and the Marbella center,not far from the beach. The room and towels are changed every day, there is a coffee bar near by for a breakfast at very reasonable price,
Very good location and very reasonable price.
Very central, practicaly inside the old town, 5 min from the beach. Near shops, restaurants and bars. Once you find a parking space, leave your car, and don´t move it! No hairdryer. Needs a room safe. Towel holder was broken and was never repaired.
Superb location on the edge of the old town - easy walk to restaurants and the beach. Very clean, comfortable room with air conditioning. Excellent value for money given the very central location. A room safe would have been very useful - and perhaps the hotel could consider this for the future. Also, some form of breakfast facility on site would be good - even just serving juice, beverages and rolls/croissants - nothing cooked. However, several nearby cafes did serve breakfast so it wasn't a huge problem.
Very good central location and the rooms/reception nicely decorated and clean. We arrived Saturday afternoon after a long journey only to find the cafe/bar was not open that day or the following being Sunday!! No chance of even getting a beer or coffee.
Clean, functional rooms, great location.
Perfect location, nice mountainview or 17th century castle view. Restaurants and pittoresque old town of Marbella 100 metres away on the left handside of hotel. 500 metres beach and city centre. Once found a parking, leave your car, everzthing is close. Best location and value for monez. Needs at least one star more !!! Nice helpful staff. Friendly family run hotel !
Excellent location just outside old town centre, friendly family run hotel, overlooking old city castle walls, staff made us feel like home
Location,friendly staff Bar/cafeteria opens at 9 a.m. -would be nice to be able have some breakfast earlier. At moment no hairdryers,all ten of them stolen by customers!
Location, comfort and cleanliness, hotel staff. No
good location, quiet, nice roof terrace, easy to work from
The owners of the apartments Doris and Jose were very inviting friendly and most helpful at all times. It was a pleasure to meet such lovely people. I would highly recommend their accomodation.
friendly helpful owners and staff
Doris the apartametos owner was very friendly and gave me a very warm welcome. The apartamento was clean, spacious and very cute funitued. The room was clean and friendly. Very practical was also that the apartamentos are directly accross the parking and only a few steps to go to the heart of the old town. There were two small things which were maybe not ideal: The room had a quiet strong smoking smell The room was at the level of the small steet. If somebody is a bit sensitive of noice it could not be easy to sleep as you hear all the pedestrian and small motorbikes passing. On the other hand this made also the charm of this sweet place...
The location of the apartments within the Old Town near to Orange Square and only 10 minutes walk to the beach. Clean, air conditioned apartments very well priced. One very minute detail.....The shower head was broken and ended up spraying all directions.
The location as it was very central and not far from the beach. Also, the apartment was on a very noisy corner where the locals like to gather and talk loudly into the early hours. We had a 5 night stay and while we only expected cleaning on 4 nights, we only got it on 3 nights.
The appartement we had, number 3, was charming and had a lovely terrace. We had a very pleasant stay there.
The apartments are in a perfect position in the old town, which is beautiful, however it is only a 10 minute slow walk to the sea front. Doris and Jose, the owners, could not be any more helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. We have already booked to go back again next year. We booked late and got the last apartment, which was on the ground floor and a little dark for reading, but perfect when it came to sleeping.
Great hotel. Really exceeded expectations! Friendly helpful owners and in a beautiful traditional part of marbella. Highly recommended. Perhaps may be good to have 1 english tv channel. Don't imagine its necessary in summer but during low season siesta, might be nice to even have bbc news. Small issue though.
The dining room was fabulous. Room was small.
Charming atmosphere, wonderful location and staff who treates you as old friends
Warm atmosphere, good interia, excellent staff. Location is complicated, and it might be impossible to fine by yourself. However, hotel staff kindly came and picked up us in front of near supermarket. Also we asked a beach and restaurent to the staff. She recommended nice beach and restaurents. We just followed her recommendation, which made our trip perfect. I would like to recommend the hotel to all of people, but if everyone come, it might make me difficult to book the hotel again. So, I don't recommend it!!
the staff was great, the rooms are very nice, clean and original decoreted, the location is excellent, you feel like home no
Excellent personal service throughout. All furniture and finishings were high quality and well thought out. On hearing that the trip was a present for my girlfriends birthday the staff were more than happy to arrange for flowers in the room and even supplied a complimentary bottle of very nice Cava. Coming back to Marbella I would not want to stay anywhere else. Highly recommended.
The personal touches in the room and personal service of the owner and staff
The beautiful detail in the interior design and the delightful staff. N/A
La Villa Marbella is a truly small charming hotel, located in the delightful old town of Marbella only steps away from the center and not far from the beach. The staff is very nice and helpful indicating real interesting spots to visit/resturants aso.
The roof terrace and use of fridge was convenient and nice touch
Very nice hotel of Marcus and his staff. Breakfast is on the terrace on the topfloor and is excellent. On the day of arrival we got very nice advices where to go and where to eat.
location is very good, hotel staff is very kind and very professional, rooms are well cleaned, breakfast is good and rates are fair enough
Very attentive, friendly staff. Relatively large, comfortable, aesthetically pleasing rooms.
Great Staff, good prices, nice service, i will repeat
Very clean, helpful and friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Moer like a hotel then a hostel. Very pretty little street. A+
the helpful owners, the location close to the old town
Clean, correct, nice little place on a quiet, small street.
The family the run at the Hostal were very helpful and kind and it was very central for my needs. The rooms are very basic, no bedside light for reading, no plugs in sinks, very small showers and in my case 1 small window that did not open and looked out onto an internal corridor, not worth the 40€ a night cost when you can stay at a good hotel for the same price.
Close to the sea and both to the center. Clean rooms. Really nice and helpful personnel.
The lady at the front desk (the owner I presume) was very kind even our english was'nt the best option. The atmosphere in the center of Marbella. Even the very narrow streets :) The (private) bathroom on the hall.
Helpful family owners;Free wifi and multi computers in the common room;and excellent big screen tv. would have liked breakfast offered from 8am.
No elevator, so I had to lug my heavy bag up a flight of stairs.
It was well located within walking distance to shops and beach There were no coffee/tea making facilities and we had to go next door for ice
friendly helpful efficient reception staff quiet location though very convenient to "the action" my bed was horrible, a board!! Cleaning was sparce, needs refurbishment.
Fresh Clean bright Quaint No dislikes
The hotel is in the beautiful old town, in the center of Marbella, the relation price/quality is excellent, the staff is very helpful and friendly, they speak all english, my room had a balcony and was very clean, I will book again, thank you. The rating: 9.
the room is sunny and has a nice balcony. It is safe and the receptionists are friendly. It is located near the main squares where the restaurants, cafes and bars. also it is close to the beach the AC was not workin properly, the safe box was not working and the water turns suddenly to extremely hot in the shower and sink although the mixer is properly adjusted to allow for warm water. The rooms need attention from the staff and require maintenance. You pay more than what you get.
Good location near the action but on quiet street, 24hr reception Nothing terrible, just a basic, backpacker-style hostel - no elevator, ac wasn't working, no breakfast
I liked everything about the hotel No
first of all the location, the rooms are very differents and if you can choose you can get a very good one
The staff were all very friendly and accommodating, the room was a reasonable size and clean. For the price Linda Hotel was excellent value for money, it was a little difficult to find but the quaint setting only added to the charm. No real problems but I guess if you had a lot of luggage then it could be a bit of a hassle getting a lot of luggage to and from the hotel
good location, good facility, good price.
The family-run hostal was a delightful place to stay. I had a lovely room, with a view of the mountains, and the staff - 3 brothers and a sister, were all really friendly and helpful. I would go there again.
Excellent value for money. The room was clean and bright, and in a quiet part of town. I liked the fact that I was given a front door key so could come and go as I pleased.
The room was very quiet and close to the old town.
New, Clean and in a perfect location No warm blanket in the room though it was raining and a bit cold at night
Excellent location and TV/air con made it a very comfortable stay. Also had a great private balcony.
So exceptionally clean with room spruced up every day. Very friendly staff who were there if wanted but otherwise left you alone to enjoy yourself. Would have liked tea/coffee making facilities because no breakfast in the room offering.
What a "find".This great hostel.restaurant is run by a really friendly Spanish family who go out of their way to make ypou welcome.It is spotlessly clean throughout and the rooms are cleaned every day. The food in the restaurant is excellent and really very resonably priced.Only ten minutes stroll from the main town and beach.I shall certainly stay there again as soon as I can.In fact I went on to the web today to see if I could book for just after Christmas and it was fully booked which must say something about it.
A good budget hotel in a central location. friendly helpful staff.
staff was very helpful , perfect location to see old town of marbella, hostal was clean,room was good, nice to have a balcony, evening menu, disappointed everything is served with chips,
