25 June 2010 Jessica Ann would recommend this property

Liked: Hotel El Castillo is great because: it is centrally located, right in the heart of the old part of Marbella and a very short walk to the beach. My room was very clean, as was the bathroom. The man at reception was very calm and nice and I was able to leave my backpack in the hotel after check out. For the price, I wish they'd have offered something for breakfast. And since it's more of a hotel, it's not as easy to meet other travelers. For a quiet and calm stay, I'd definitely recommend this place.
