We are staying currently for 4 nights at the hotel California. It's our first time in Spain and we could not have picked a better hotel. We have a one bedroom suite which was a lovely surprise. The hotel is very clean, the staff is always willing to help with a smile. Breakfast is good and has a great healthy... More

Spent 7 nights at the hotel. Good location, close to the beach and a short bus ride into the city. Spotlessly clean and very helpful staff. Very traditional approach to guests as breakfast is served rather than being buffet style. Within easy reach of good cafes and restaurants and a supermarket round the corner.

Within strolling distance of all the pleasures that down-town Malaga has to offer and just a 2 minute walk from the sandy beach with it's selection of sun-bedded chinguiritos this is a top spot for a short break holiday or a night's stop over on the way to a holiday destination. The service we received was over and beyond and... More

We spent 7 pleasant nights in the hotel. Location was great: the hotel is located a stone's throw from the beach with its many beachside chiringuitos/beach restaurants. It's a 0.5km walk to the busy port with more restaurants, shops, etc and a 1km walk to the historic centre of the town. This was perfect for us as we could do... More

Good hotel if the price is right. We paid 160 euros for 2 nights B&B which was too much for what you get. Its quirky, clean and the staff are very helpful but the room was compact and there were only minimum facilities, hence the 2 stars.

We spent our first night in Spain at Hotel California. We selected this hotel based on all of the positive reviews. The hotel was very affordable at 75 euros for a "Superior Twin/double room" so I expected a lesser quality hotel. That was not the case at all. The hotel is charming and is in a great location.

This place has an excellent location, just one street over from the beach. 15 minute walk into town. They have a roof for guests to use for drinking, sunbathing etc. The place is quite quiet and the service is friendly, very good value for money. Breakfast wasn't fancy but probably the best we had in Spain. Would easily visit again.

I'm currently staying at the Hotel C, and just love it. Location is excellent, with a few steps down to the cleaned-up beach of La Caleta, and a 10-15 minute walk to the historic centre. The entire area has character and charm, and so does the hotel. The rooms are lovely, tasteful and clean, and the breakfast is delicious, varied... More

Just returned from a Four night stay in beautiful Malaga. Hotel California was fantastic but do book a room at the rear of the hotel as the noise from the bar across the road on the Friday night was crazy. It is just near a lovely beach where we spent the day and rented a lounger and parasol for only... More
