My partner and I stayed here on 29th Jan. We chose this hotel because of its location to the city and accessibility to places we wanted to visit. On arrival the owners were very helpful with check in. The parking was a struggle until we realised there was a car park across the road which the owners kindly parked our... More

Our room was nice and clean and air conditioned as despite being in September it was still very hot. The hotel is very close to the beach you just walk down the road then through an alley cross over the road and you are there. The hotel has bars and restaurants close by. They have a solarium upstairs to sit... More

We only stayed one night at the end of a 3 week touring round Iznajar ..... Seville and Granada .... great hotel and very attentive staff .... would stay here again if we're fortunate enough to travel that way again and longer than one night .... good location and the old town was great for sightseeing in the evening

This is a small, family run hotel offering limited services. The friendly staff, the comfort, the cleanliness and the high level of fixtures and fittings match those of much more expensive establishments. The value for money is outstanding. The hotel is located on a busy road with several bus routes stopping practically at its door. Malaga's Old Town is an... More

We spent one night in this beautiful hotel before our two week trip to the South of Spain in November 2015. The hotel is really quite nice with lots of interesting art work and rooms and areas to explore. The staff is excellent and were very helpful with information regarding our trip and the public transport system. The continental breakfast... More

Nice little hotel. Friendly staff. Great location and really clean. Down side was you could hear everything that happened in the next room. Baby crying in the middle of the night is not a nice way to be woken when you are on your holiday.

Very cosy small hotel close to the beach (1 minute walk) and 10-15 walking distance from city centre. Friendly staff, clean room, a very nice terrasse with sea view on 4th floor - you can hardly get more for this price! I would definetly recommend it.

Awesome location to visit Malaga. 3 minute walk to beach, 10 minute walk to old city. Comfortable room, nice rooftop terrace with view of the sea. City bus stop in front of hotel. The only disappointing thing was the quality of the service. The woman at the desk seemed annoyed whenever we asked for something. I don't think I saw... More
