Rooms were small but clean with modern amenities. The provided beach towels. The location is the best part.. Located within walking distance of city center. Staff was very nice. We ended staying 5 days in Malaga instead of the two of our original plan. We loved being in the center of town.. So many restaurants and bars. And the parking... More

If you are looking for a cheap place to stay in the middle of the historic center of Malaga and are not very picky, this is it. The rooms and bathrooms are small, there is nowhere to place your soap unless you put it on top of the toilet, the shower curtain was not easily managed and if not careful... More

Excellent location in the old town. Just a few minutes walk from the port and beach. Very helpful reception staff. This is a two star room only hotel with plenty of eating options in the vicinity. Our room was compact with a modern bathroom.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. Whilst the rooms were small, they were extremely comfortable with a modern and workable bathroom. The location provided easy access to the old town and shopping districts. The staff are quite reserved and formal, but very helpful. Please do not misread this manner as unfriendly. There is a spacious downstairs lounge ideal for reading... More

Great location right by the Cathedral and Alcazaba. That being said the cafe bars nearby are expensive so worth walking 5 mins to Plaza de la Merced for much better value for money. The guy at reception printed out some travel documents for me which was much appreciated. Would stay here again.

Just returned from a lovely stay at this hotel. It's perfectly situated in the old town of Malaga with the cathedral and museums all close by, within walking distance. The train and bus station are also within walking distance so perfect if you want to explore the other areas. The hotel is clean and comfortable, decent bathroom and shower, television,... More
