Will Marbella become the Boutique Hotel Capital of Europe?
Marbella Boutique HotelsAre you coming to Marbella, but bored with the corporate banality of big chain Hotels?
Then the news that at least four new Boutique Hotels will be springing up in the Old Town of Marbella can only come as good news.
News coming out of the Marbella Town Hall is exciting indeed, with two famous landmarks on the Calle Ancha being reformed with multi-million euro plans. The first will be to transform the old La Fonda, which in days gone by was indeed the jewel in the crown of the Old Town, with guests from the Hollywood A-list like Sir Michael Cain, Deborah Kerr, Lew Grade, Jimmy Stewart, Brigit Bardot, and that's without naming the hoards of European Royalty that have graced its fabulous interior.
The other enormous reform, taking place on the same street has lain empty for as long as I can remember, 33 years, so you can imagine it wouldn't be in the best condition, but the foresight of the people at Rhone Property have deemed the 622 sqm property worthy of a multi-million Euro transformation into an 11 bedroom luxury boutique hotel called Maison Ardois, which should be open for business for this summer.
News on the other two hotels being built is a little sketchy at the moment, but I believe one will be the old Patio de Los Perfumes on Calle Peral and Aduar, a fantastic old house with a beautiful Andalus patio and the other is the Hostal Castillo on Plaza San Bernabe, overlooking the world-famous Orange Square.
