Thanks to Franz and his team! We had a wonderful stay in Marbella. Lovely small boutique hotel. Clean, comfortable and close to the water. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and also spoke English.

We just return from a 10 day tour in Andalucia and Hotel Claude was by far the best hotel we stayed at during our roundtrip.
The rooms in this 17th century townhouse were modern and very comfortable . Perfect fusion between old and new.nd The roof terrace and lounges are are great to chill out and the staff couldn't do enough to help us during the 2 night stay.
It was a pleasure to be served your a la carte breakfast on the terrace, instead of the usual hotel buffet and it was served always with a smile.

A nice oasis of calm in the old town of Marbella.
We really enjoyed our stay here and we shall be coming back.

Everything has already been written about this unique and truly special place. The owner Franz and his team make sure from the moment you step into this old palatial building, which has been exquisitely renovated, aand offering just 7 beautiful rooms and suites , that you feel like home. Even better...King and Queen of your own castle. Franz, an ex financial broker, will happily share the hotel's history , his passion for the hotel as well as his passion for Spain and what made him create this magic place. The breakfast on the roof terrace is just to die for. The location could not be better, 3 minutes walk to the Orange Square and 6 to the beach promenade. The first Restaurants just under 1 minute walk. And their recommendations are spot on. We loved a small Spanish bistro style restaurant called "Caperuza" and the seafood bar "Altamirano", where they sell their own
catch.
One evening, when we returned from a day trip to Gibraltar and Tariff, Maria , Franz's wife, fixed us a delicious 3 course dinner ( goats cheese and caramelised figues salad followed by tuna steak and fresh vegetables and finished with homemade Tiramisu.

This little gem is just amazing and we shall return.
Thank you for 4 great days.

Room Tip: Provenzal Room, beautiful romantic room

We have just returned from an amazing short break at Hotel Claude. And what an incredible experience it was. From the moment we arrived at this beautiful Townhouse, which felt more like a morrocan riad, we were looked after and pampered by Franz and Maria (owners) and their team.The attention to detail is just stunning. Beautiful breakfast on the terrace the only day it did not rain. You do not just book bed and breakfast, but you also get your tailor mate concierge service and nothing was too much trouble.
We will return!

Dear Peter S

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our Boutique Hotel Claude on TripAdvisor and sharing it with the large number of users and potential travelers.

We are happy to read that we managed to look after you and that you enjoyed your stay with us. And yes, the house feels like a Riad, which was the challenge when taking on the refurbishment and decoration. We did not want to replicate a north African feel, but create a space that reflects what Marbella always was. A mix of all cultures and architectural designs.
And I have to admit that you were very brave in starting the breakfast season on the terrace , after a rather long rain season.

We look forward to welcome you back soon.

Yours sincerely

Franz Josef Willmes

Dear Helene S

Thank you for taking the time and posting this brief but very nice and charming review.
It might have been a little chaotic during the photo shoots and the weather did not really help ( I am sure the pics will be great though) but we are so pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay in our little "romantic" and authentic gem.

And hopefully we will welcome you back soon.

Yours sincerely

Franz
