 18th January 2024, Marbella – The iconic structure of the old hotel San Cristóbal is illuminated again but this time under a new name and an entirely updated proposal as a 4 star heart. After a grand investment of 9 million euros, the Óbal Urban Hotel is officiated as a new accommodation and leisure offer in the heart of Marbella.

With 110 rooms of varying typologies, from the double Classic and double Premium to the exclusive Junior Suite and the Suit of 55 metres squared, Óbal Urban Hotel aspires to transform itself once again into the point of reference for hotels of the area. The family business SOLVENTO Group, the driving force of this ambitious project, looks to establish a new standard of excellence in both local and culinary tourism, led at all times by values of humility, sacrifice and strength which have characterised the Parra family.

“The transformation of this mythical hotel is our contribution to the evolution of Marbella as a first-class tourist destination. We are committed to urban and gastronomic tourism, offering unique experiences to our guests“, describes Cristóbal Parra (jr), third generation of the family owning the Óbal Urban Hotel.

The renovation process, which began in November 2022, has transformed the hotel into a contemporary and sustainable space, adapted to the demands of increasingly demanding tourism. From interior design to installations, every aspect has been carefully considered. The 24-hour reception at street level, the ‘Alameda’ restaurant, the Rooftop 360 Blue Sky Bar, the multipurpose lounges, the wellness room with aesthetic treatments, and the gym that will feature state-of-the-art equipment and machinery are an integral part of the hotel’s offer.

“Obal Urban Hotel is not just another accommodation in Marbella; it is a comprehensive experience that embraces sustainability, close attention and high quality services. Every detail has been carefully designed to meet the needs of guests and society in Marbella,” affirms Manuel Murga, the hotel’s general manager.

The culinary heart of the Óbal Urban Hotel is the Alameda restaurant, with renowned tradition and passion for gastronomy. With a focus on Mediterranean cuisine and local products (Km0), the restaurant asserts itself as a distinguished space within Marbella’s gastronomic offering. The major novelty is the Rooftop 360 Blue Sky Bar, offering a casual menu with healthy proposals, select cocktails and a swimming pool that offers panoramic views of Marbella.

Thus, with a complete transformation, a staff of more than 45 professionals and a proposal that covers accommodation, gastronomy and leisure, Óbal Urban Hotel Marbella is preparing to shine as the new benchmark in the hotel scene of the Costa del Sol. “A renaissance that not only celebrates the past, but looks enthusiastically toward the future of hospitality in Marbella,” concludes the owner of the establishment.
