Julie wrote to me yesterday:
"Hi Mike, Do you know how long it would take to walk from Marbella bus station to the Lima Hotel or Marbella Inn Hotel? Can we walk or how long would it be in a taxi? My daughter and 4 of her friends are coming out to Marbella in the summer. I booked their flight for them yesterday and I am now helping them to book a hotel."
I replied, "Hi Julie, Thank you very much for checking in to www.gomarbella.com Both the Lima hotel, seen here in the picture and the Marbella Inn are about 25 minutes on foot from the Marbella bus station pulling a suitcase. The Marbella Inn is slightly closer. It would be a pleasant walk down from the bus station if they weren't carrying luggage.
I suggest they take a taxi from the Marbella bus station on their arrival. It would be a minimum Marbella taxi fare of around 6 euros. They would need two taxis for five travellers.
The Lima is more of a hostel than a hotel but it is really well situated, near the beach. It is only 150 metres from the beach and 5 minutes from the old town. Location wise you can't go with either hotel.
I hope this helps, have a great stay and don't hesitate to ask for any help
Best wishes from Marbella Mike"
