Just back from a week at the Escandinavia in Torremolinos. Got it at a great price and was open minded after reading mixed reviews. The room I got had no balcony and was facing the main road. That said it was quite large and featured a king size bed. I usually find hotel beds in Spain a bit hard, but... More

At very center of Torremolinos. Not very far from any services. Railway station is 300 meters away, train to Malaga, to the Airport, or Fuengirola. Bus stops and taxi about 300 meters from the house. Nice and popular terrace. Good and reasonably priced rooms. A family-owned 60 years old Scandinavian style place to stay overnight and spend time on a... More

Read some good reviews and bad reviews about this place. Nearly everything I read, both good and bad, seemed to be true. However, It's what you personally require that sorts it all out. I had a large room, with a nice balcony overlooking the quieter of the two streets. Full bathroom, lots of hot water, new TV set, WIFI.....all good.... More

Plus points It was located on a very central Road. With the beach, the town center and the train station nearby. The rooms were spacious, tiled and had balconies. The management was very helpful. They gave us a brand new ironing board for use. Patita the lady at the reception gave us directions and helped us a lot. Negative points... More

The Brother and Sister owners of the Hotel seemed welcoming the room was ok clean towels everyday and you had the choice of looking over a noisy dual carraige way or a very busy one way street the perfume of cats pee everywear down stairs. Noisy water pump everytime someone ran the hot water tap. The place is in a... More

I stayed here for two nights in December 2012. It was a bit strange, that you have always to ring the bell, if you want to enter the Pension - but that was no problem. Large room with old furniture. Free WIFI worked well. Between 5 and 10 minutes walking to Torremolinos train station. Next to the building are several... More

This is not by any stretch of the imagination a hotel or even a hostal. It is run down dirty and should be shut under every health and safety regulation in the book. There was one electric socket in the bedroom - the one in the bathroom fell to pieces when I tried to use it. The wiring is completely... More

I stayed two nights in Eskandinavia. My room was nice, clean and there was a balcony. I knew that in southern Spain the heating is not the first priority. I had made my reservation through booking.com and there was promised heating. There was a radiator in the room, but the power was not connected. The bed was not wet, but... More
