I knew exactly what I was getting when I booked this hotel - so I was happy with my stay. It was a bit difficult to find the place in the middle of a Easter Procession, but the good thing is they have a 24 hour reception desk. The bed was comfortable, the room was soundproof (I heard no noise... More

This is in a very central location, so full marks for that. The room is clean, it's also very basic, but you get what you pay for, and in terms of what I paid it was fine. The room I was in was over a street, which did have some noise, but that certainly isn't the fault of the hotel.... More

Hi, Over here for a few days, looking to buy a property. In trying to keep the cost down, I booked 4 days in this place. Very basic, first experience of a shared bathroom. No problems, nice and clean, 3 on my floor so access is fine, rooms are a bit noisy and a bit run down, but otherwise clean,... More

Firstly, this accommodation is central. Right next to everything. I live in the centre of a large town in the UK and know there can be noise levels. This, however, is ridiculous. With the best silicone earplugs and using all window shuttering devices, I cannot stand the constant street noise. There is drilling:,street carts cleaning all night, and a man... More

Excellent location...only here for a night en route to the airport so haven't quite found the beach but did get to the port which is very close...Helpful staff! Building feels a bit dodgy though. Long corridors, quiet at times. Brilliant value for money! Room fine but like a deserted student dorm big time..

Rooms are pretty basic, but fine if you just want a bed for the night, although depending on who is in the hotel, it could be a little noisy. Nice 10/15 minute walk to the beach. The hotel is right in the centre of the old town, the location is excellent with everything you need on your doorstep. Handy tip,... More

Here's our review, based on our 9B criteria: * Bed - a single bed with a comfy mattress. * Bedroom - small in size, as you would expect from a student room, but it's fine for a place to just 'bunk down'. It had a desk and shelves, plus lamp. It's worth bearing in mind that the Residence overlooks a... More

Located right in the center of historic Malaga, this place is perfect as long as you don't forget you are in a student room. So do not expect a 4-star and you'll appreciate it. +: Location, cheap, clean, surprisingly quiet, Internet, friendly staff, lots of cheap cafes and bar around. -: No AC.
