We loved the sea view, the excellent breakfast buffet, the very comfy rooms with soft pillows, free wifi all over hotel. Spend a lot of time at the lovely Marbella old town (within a couple of minutes walking distance). Can definately recommend this hotel.
Very good hotel - complimentary drink of sparkling wine on arrival! Excellent buffet breakfast. Good location with beach on doorstep. Will be booking again next year - with Booking.com.
Location and attitude of staff. Pool is a bit on the small size and spa is overpriced for residents.
All facilities and staff amazing. Such a fabulous setting which was so relaxing. Only one criticism we all had a flight in the morning with pick up at 07.40. Breakfast did not start until 7:30am, we were not even allowed to get a drink of juice prior. Would suggest that there is a facility for some sort of continental breakfast/ coffee for people departing early for flights, golf etc.
The Location was great! Right on the beach and a few minutes on foot to the old town center. The Hotel was great! Location, price, ammenities, however the staff were not particularly helpful with tourist info. I stayed there for 4 days, and I wanted to take a 1 day excursion to Morrocco. For whatever reason the hotel staff could not help coordinate it. I kept asking them to help me and for some reason they kept sending me in towards a dead end.
Ideal location beside beach and 5 minutes stroll from old town. Excellent breakfast. High class hotel with great facilities.
location, breakfast, room
Somewhat disapointing in terms of facilities. Hotel looked tired and need of upgrading. No management of the Spa facilities Reduce the price
Breakfast facilites excellent, private beach and towel service very convenient i lost my camera :-(
Location Only complaint is that I booked on your website for three nights and received confirmation of that. On arrival at hotel we were told we could only stay two nights as hotel was closing for season so had to find another hotel
Location, 2 terraces, spacious room and bathroom, nice kitchen Cleanness of tools in kitchen.
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 staff could have been friendlier
Location I felt the hotel was slightly dated
The pool and bar area
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.
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
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.
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 is fantastic service staff seems too full to handle, esp reception
Location is great and quite, breakfast is amazing, hotel is in front of unbelivable view of the beach... Highly recommended Rooms will be better refunrished, you need to stand on your balacony to look at sea..
Great location, nice facilities, very nice room Check-in was a bit slow and unorganized. Other than that the hotel was great and we would return
location bar staff were positively unhelpful and unfriendly, thus we went to bars on street
Location and service
Proximity to sea, promenade and old town Large hotel, a bit noisy at times
Lovely breakfast Hard mattress and expensive car parking :-(
Location was perfect. We especially enjoyed renting bikes and biking on the boardwalk to Puerto Banus. Staff was friendly and brought us a free bottle of cava for our honeymoon. Best leg of our trip to Spain! Miscommunication concerning bike rentals left us walking back and forth through the town for an hour only to find that there are only five bikes to rent.
Nice and peaceful, very central to other services Would have liked some tea coffee facilities in the room. and more room between beds and dressing table a bit snug for two people
the staff,cleaner,frindly,location,room location nice view none
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)
Hotel was very well located, easy to get around from here. Staff was very unhelpful, bordering on rude.
very nice breakfast,hotel location excellent. a lot of traffic noise when window/door is open
right in the old center of Marbella, exellent value for money
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.
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 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.
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.
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
Once found the position Very hard to find needs more direction, have to park and walk although not too far
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.
The hotel is very central and the staff are so friendly and accomodating.
Really friendly staff. Great location right in the old town. Clean and simple - perfect for some traditional spanish vacationing.
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*
Free internet connection Lack of a bar!
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
Great location with very friendly and helpful staff. We had a fantastic stay and made to feel very welcome.
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)
the intimate stting, the very nice staff, great decoration a little noisy
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
The staff and food location difficult to find
Desiree Wilmes - Manager - Was Excellent and service generally very very good
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.
Location, comfort and cleanliness, hotel staff. No
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.
Excellent location just outside old town centre, friendly family run hotel, overlooking old city castle walls, staff made us feel like home
Clean, functional rooms, great location.
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.
Very good location and very reasonable price.
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!
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,
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 is great Our sheets were not changed throughout the week.
Very central location - 5 minutes walk to either the beach or the old town areas. Good sized room with a nice balcony - though it did look out over a busy junction. No fridge - which given the heat in Marbella for much of the year would have been a nice addition. Still at the price you can't expect perfection !
The location is excellent, just 5 mins from the beach and marina. The room we had was very large and had a balcony.
Value for money, very central clean and great location
Very central in Marbella, close to beach and the old town. The bedroom was large and spacious, very good value for money, same price as the Hostels but far, far better. No bar in the hotel and as i was travelling alone (lady 56) i would have liked to have had a drink in the evening either in the bar or in my room
nearby city center and the sea car parking
Biggest hotel room I've ever stayed in in Spain, or Europe, for that matter. Room was very clean. It is located on a corner and there was a fair amount of street noise that drifted up to our 4th floor room
Good location, service and friendly staff.
loking over the balcony at the mahem of the traf
The hotel is in the old town of Marbella which is absolutely beautiful as is the hotel and within 100metres of some excelent resturants. The owners are delightful and very helpful. A great place to relax. Nothing
The Old Town location was perfect. Hundreds of narrow streets leading to restaurants, tapas bars, and wonderful shops. The houses were adorned with flora and were imaculately painted and presented - beautiful to walk past and look at. When you stay at La Morada, the owners make you feel more like a house guest, than just a customer at a hotel. The guest lounge is a calming relaxing room where guests can enjoy free access to a computer and the internet. Relaxing music plays in the background and the owner's Marbella beach scene paintings adorne the walls. I am almost reluctant to say how good it was to stay there as places like this are a best kept secret, they are so good! What I didn't like about staying at La Morada was that I didn't stay there long enough! Next time I visit, it will be for much longer!
It was in the great old town of Marbella, which is so beautiful. Everything was in walking distance. The hotel manager was just awesome! She was very informative and always so polite! For those who are light sleepers, it may not be the spot for you. Since, there are nearby restaurants, you will hear the people talking late at night. It really didn't bother me. I had great sleeps!
Excellent Location and not fancy but very comfortable Difficult to find. Need a map of the whole city of Marbella, not just the old city center where the hotel is located.
spacious suite, spiral stairs to outside terrace, nice bedroom, nice bathroom, refrigerator unit. staff was friendly and helpful. overall a very pleasant place to stay. outdoor furniture needs replacement to fully enjoy the terrace, and living room area could be more attractively decorated
- friendly staff - great location - clean, quaintly decorated rooms - their restuarant recommendations - internet
This hotel is really special, a hidden gem right in the centre of the old town, there are only 8 rooms and it it typically spanish and a bit quirky. Breakfast was served to the room in a picnic basket which was really different. My wife and I really enjoyed the stay and the owner Paloma is really helpfull. The only problem we had was that the water is heated by solar panels and we had to shower some mornings in water that was a little too cool. If they could improve this it would be faltless.
Beautiful property right in the centre of Marbella Old Town, within walking distance of everything !!! Lovely clean rooms - ours was on two levels which was an unexpected novelty. Would definitely recommend.
Great position and easy to get around old town and beach Difficult to get to. Malaga taxis did not know where it was and we had wasted a bit of time getting to the hotel. Had to ask three different people to assist with address whereabouts. Police only knew it was parralel with main street. Even a real estate agent had to contact hotel where they were and it turned out that the hotel was a mere 150 metres away from the agency. A bit frustrating.
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...
friendly helpful owners and staff
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.
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 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 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.
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 appartement we had, number 3, was charming and had a lovely terrace. We had a very pleasant stay there.
A well priced hotel that was basic but clean in an excellent location - staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent hot and cold buffet breakfast included in the price. Nothing apart from it does not have it´s own parking, however a large car park is nearby at a reasonable daily charge.
How close it was to Marbella centre and the ld village The breakfast was very bad with fried eggs that had been left under a warmer for over 30 minutes. Car parking was so expensive.
The hotel was situated in the best possible area of Marbella. It was quiet at night which is a big plus for us.We would definitely return. The bed linen and towels had seen better days,it would have been nice to have more English channels on Sky
Excelente location, very central, close to the beach, with restaurants and bars a few steps. The breakfast Perfect to be in Marbella for a good price. Its hard to park the car, but the hotel cant do anything with that.
the 24hrs front desk and the staff were very helpful,also it was quite near the beach. the decor was jaded and old, carpet in hallways was badly stained.
the price it was far from any attractions
The hotel was average regarding facilities and a little tired regarding the condition. However, the location is very good for access to the beach, shopping and restaurants. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Hotel was very central. The room was nice and clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. Would reccomend staying there.
right in the center - within a couple of minutes of both the beach and the old town.
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.
The personal touches in the room and personal service of the owner and staff
The roof terrace and use of fridge was convenient and nice touch
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 staff was great, the rooms are very nice, clean and original decoreted, the location is excellent, you feel like home no
The dining room was fabulous. Room was small.
The beautiful detail in the interior design and the delightful staff. N/A
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!!
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.
