Free internet connection Lack of a bar!
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
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*
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.
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 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.
Really friendly staff. Great location right in the old town. Clean and simple - perfect for some traditional spanish vacationing.
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.
Once found the position Very hard to find needs more direction, have to park and walk although not too far
Desiree Wilmes - Manager - Was Excellent and service generally very very good
Superb boutique hotel in a great location
Everything, the hotel is a gem & the best thing about marbella Cannot think of any negative aspect even if I try hard to find one
Wow!! Fabulous service - everybody did their very best to make me feel at home. A real jewel. I will go back! This is not a dislike just a note. There are a couple of rooms where there is no lift - if you have a problem with stairs check that you have one of the rooms with a lift. The Manager kindly changed my room and I didn't have a problem but it might have been more difficult at a busy time.
Pleasant friendly staff. Lovely breakfasts. Pleasing decor. No front door key provided. Some teething problems - safe not working, no hot water on our last night, no laptop available (although staff kindly allowed access to the hotel's PC)
Great location with very friendly and helpful staff. We had a fantastic stay and made to feel very welcome.
The staff and food location difficult to find
Very high quality boutique hotel situated in a good position in old part of Marbella. Hands-on approach by owner managers which we very much enjoyed and a first class restaurant experience on our last night N/A
the intimate stting, the very nice staff, great decoration a little noisy
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!
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.
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.
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 !
Location, comfort and cleanliness, hotel staff. No
The appartement we had, number 3, was charming and had a lovely terrace. We had a very pleasant stay there.
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.
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.
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.
good location, quiet, nice roof terrace, easy to work from
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 dining room was fabulous. Room was small.
The roof terrace and use of fridge was convenient and nice touch
The personal touches in the room and personal service of the owner and staff
the staff was great, the rooms are very nice, clean and original decoreted, the location is excellent, you feel like home no
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.
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.
Charming atmosphere, wonderful location and staff who treates you as old friends
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.
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 beautiful detail in the interior design and the delightful staff. N/A
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.
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.
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 location and TV/air con made it a very comfortable stay. Also had a great private balcony.
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,
good location, good facility, good price.
New, Clean and in a perfect location No warm blanket in the room though it was raining and a bit cold at night
The room was very quiet and close to the old town.
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.
