The old part of town is a true gem, a maze of pedestrian streets laid with red tiles. All buildings, many of which date back to the Renaissance, are whitewashed, topped with terracotta roofs, and some of them wrapped in bougainvillea.

If you decide to stay in this area, La Villa Marbella hotel is a great choice. This small boutique hotel located on a quiet pedestrian street couldn’t be more centric, only 5 minutes’ walk from the famous Plaza de los Naranjos. This 150-year-old house has been fully refurbished, and all the rooms emanate a rather cozy Asian Style yet respecting the house’s Andalusian heritage and style. A total oasis of calm and peace in the middle of the Costa.

Another charming option is Hotel Claude Marbella, also in the heart of town. This restored 17th-century building boasts modern and elegant rooms equipped with an iPod dock, a 32-inch flat-screen TV and free Wi-Fi. The hotel also has a solarium terrace, a courtyard y and a library.
