The rooms of hotel San Cristóbal in Marbella
The hotel offers rooms of different categories: standard, premium and triple rooms. Our economy double room was small (other rooms are more spacious), even a bit cramped, but for an “overnight stay” for two it was quite acceptable. Room could do with a refresh, the room itself was clean and comfortable, cleaning is carried out daily with change of towels, and here the bathroom removed so-so - peculiar minus.
In the room: double bed, high and comfortable mattress, new bedding, two bedside tables with lamps, two chairs and a Desk; refrigerator mini bar; TV (Pro TV know, TV was never turned on); quite a spacious wardrobe, mirror and a split system. The closet has a safe, you can use for an additional fee.
