Located minutes to all attractions, quaint decoration, free tea-coffee facilities on the patio, convenient parking one block away (reservation required, fees apply). Very friendly, present and helpful owners (Florent, Florence) and staff (Florianne), all three of French extraction. They helped out with our luggage, allowed an early check-in and (very much appreciated after a long overnight flight), provided map and... More

Situated close to Plaza la Merced and Fundacion Picasso (Casa Natal), it is easy to explore the historic part of the city center and the main sights. It offers a nice patio with coffee and teamaking facilities. Staff was very helpful and provided useful information. The room was very small however and there was litte room for storage. There was...

Both, location and entourage are the best in Malaga. Very friendly staff who are willing to help you with anything. The first time we were here they were full, but then Flo (the owner) escorted us to another hotel. Fortunately all other nights we've spend in beautiful Malaga we were able to stay at El Riad Andaluz

This small hotel is well located in the old town with a very friendly and helpful owner. There is a small but pleasant courtyard to sit with coffee making facilities available 24/7. Our room was a bit dark with the window opening onto the corridor but clean and comfortable. The hotel is full of character with lots of atmosphere.

I stayed here with David M and other friends (see his review) and would corroborate all he says. Really characterful place, very central, and most markedly friendly. But ... precipitous stairs and no lift, so don't even think about it if you are not agile. (Mercifully) unsuitable for children. Outside rooms could I suspect be noisy. And I reiterate the... More

The small hotel located in the old part of Malaga, is very central to exploring the town. It has a central leafy courtyard with bedrooms furnished in the old Moorish style. The bedrooms are small but are individually designed and named. We stayed there in March for three nights and the host was very helpful and informative. His enthusiasm for... More

Right beside the Cervantes Theatre and almost in Plaza Merced, this little hotel is perfectly located for exploring the old centre of Malaga. The decor is individual and beautifully thought out. The owners are charming and could not have been more helpful. There are a couple of snags particularly if you are over 1.80 metres tall (6 feet to those... More

There is a lot to like about El Riad Andaluz - the charming decor, the friendly owner, and the adorable resident dog are three of them. The hotel has a central courtyard with free tea and coffee, really nice in good weather and lovely to spend an hour. Each room is individually decorated and named. The owner we met was... More

Really fell in love with this hotel. It is small and quaint located in the middle of Malaga city. Decor has a real spanish feel to it as it is lined with evil eye wall hangings etc... Lovely area downstairs with hammock and comfortable chairs to chill. Free tea and coffee available and free wifi which can be assessed downstairs.... More
