Very plesant staff, clean tidy rooms with balconies Good european buffet breakfast included all for just over £20. What more do you need. Situated right in the heart of the city. I will certainly stay here again.

Well placed and well priced, the Hostal El Cid is the perfect stopover for people making onward connections in Fuengirola and Malaga. The hostal will certainly not win any prizes for its decor or facilities, but then again it makes no claims to do so, and it does its job as a hostal perfectly well.

We stayed one night in September as a stop gap between accommodation. I booked early in March online which was pretty straightforward. The location is excellent close to transport links, nightlife & shops. It is cheap and cheerful, the room was adequate, basic but clean. Staff were friendly but not all speak English, this wasnt too much of an issue... More

The hotel looks good from first appearances but my wife and I had a horrible time. The wifi works good but we were onthe 4th floor and it only worked in the reception area. The shower had good hot water and the room was a good size. The hotel is only about two blocks from the train and bus station.The... More

So central, just 2 minute walk to Fuengirola Train Station, 1 minute to Buses etc.. Smooth Check-in, lovely themed rooms and very clean.

Hadn't stayed here for a couple of years. Cheap place to stay, not far from train or bus station. Now all the rooms have a different theme, love it.

El Cid hotel provides cheap accommodation in Fuengirola. Location is good - it's about 10 minutes walk from the beach and there're a lot of restaurants and cafes near by. The rooms are spacious; we had a tv-set, an AC and a balcony in our room. The main problem was about linen - it was clean but smelled with chlorine.

I appreciate we all have different ideas of what constitutes a good hostel, but please don`t consider staying here. We booked 9 nights through Hostel Bookers & stayed 30 minutes, 15 of those involving hotel clerk trying to find our booking details! We were directed to room, lift & coridors smelt awful, room like wise. Nothing like the pictures on... More
