“Hotel Monte Victoria Malaga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Stayed at the Monte Victoria with my wife from Friday 5th October to Tuesday 9th. It's situated up a hill overlooking the Cathedral and the old town. It is a typical Spanish property beautifuly decorated and very clean. We stayed in a superior room on the first floor the room was newly decorated spacious and clean. It had a large private balcony with fantastic views over the city. Victoria who runs the place with her family is an excellent host and nothing is too much trouble for her. The breakfast is good and is served on the terrace which is beautiful. It is a 20 minute walk to the Cathedral area down some steps then along a main road if you are reasonably fit it's no problem and good exercise. A great place to stay for a city break in Malaga.

Room Tip: try a superior room.

Some places are classy and well-run – full of lovely furniture, pictures and ceramics – set in a lovely building with a great view (in certain rooms) and a fabulous, simple garden/terrace. Monte Victoria is such a place. It's not central, with a bit of a walk uphill coming back, but unless that's an issue for you it probably keeps the babble of town away.

Only negative was a place that was suggested to eat at – a few minutes' walk away. It wasn't good - so use your instincts (El Pimpi!!).

Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 102 worked for us.

We stayed in this totally renovated, small, family-run hotel for 7 days at the end of August and thoroughly enjoyed everything. We had one of the two larger rooms with a balcony and the additional expense was clearly worthwhile. The view of the city and the Gibralfaro is expansive and the evening breeze refreshing. The spacious, quiet room has been recently renovated and is spotless--cleaner than most 5 star hotels. Breakfast was more than I could eat--yogurt, cheese, meat, and bread, with thick hot chocolate. The main floor contains many beautiful antiques from the previous home. On the half hour, a bus stops in front that will take you throughout the city. Alternatively you can walk 15 or 20 minutes to the center or take a cab. The owner, Victoria, is extremely helpful and pleasant with tips on buses and sites to visit. Be sure to see the well-known sites and museums, but don't forget the Jardín Botánico de la Concepción.

Room Tip: Book the larger room with a balcony.

Imagine having an impeccable home on the hills of Malaga with a beautiful garden and lots of antiques. This is what Monte Victoria feels like.

This family-operated hotel offers comfortable, air-conditioned rooms, complete with fridge, TV, Wi-Fi, and a spacious private bathroom with its own hair-dryer. All at moderate prices.

The hotel is located in a quiet, residential area with narrow streets by the woods. To go downtown you can climb down the stairs to the left of the hotel (as you leave) or ride a mini-bus that stops across the street and runs every hour on the half-hour. The ride is about 15 minutes long.

Monte Victoria's owners - and their cats - are always available and are very friendly. You can use their large living-room, which is like a mini-museum of decorative art, or sit outside in their gorgeous garden and enjoy the cool, jasmine-scented morning breeze, as you have breakfast.

After an action-packed day, it's always a pleasure to come home to Monte Victoria.

Located on the hills above Malaga this villa offers an escape from the traffic and pollution of the town centre below. It’s half an hour walk to the centre, but really worth it if not for the fresh air then for the views. There is an infrequent bus stopping outside the hotel (the reception has the timetable) or if you are tired you can take a taxi- they are reasonably cheap. This is a family run outfit so you get a personal and friendly service, which is rare to non-existent in bigger hotels in Spain. The dining room/ lounge is beautifully furnished with antiques, the guest rooms are very comfortable, with aircon and good bathrooms/storage.
Beds are unfortunately, as in most hotels in Spain, 2 singles pushed together to make a double. There is an extra charge for breakfast, which consists of the freshest rolls, cheeses and meat, which you can take on the terrace outside- on our second day we skipped it to try the famous Spanish breakfast staples of chocolate and churros- it was quite an experience.
Very pleasant and good value for money- recommended.

PS We travelled in September 2009 but it seems this lovely place hadn't changed much.

This was our second visit in a year to Hotel Monte Victoria. It doesn't feel like a hotel, it feels like home from home. We had the same room as previous, room 104, superior room with balcony.

The welcome from Victoria is second to none, the breakfast in the beautiful garden is peaceful and a wonderful start to the day, and is served until 11am. A very private breakfast as there is much space in between tables and you can have a private conversation. Victoria has several cats who love the garden and are a great source of entertainment in the mornings.

The room and bathroom is flawlessly clean and is serviced every day if you leave the room before 2pm. The balcony area is a lovely space for relaxing in the morning and later in the day when you return to the hotel. Very little noise at night, the odd dog barking!

Very secure environment, there is always somebody on reception for access to the hotel.

The surrounding area is very nice and if you are of average fitness, it takes about 15 mins to walk to town, and there are buses if you prefer. A few minutes walk and you are in Compas de La Victoria. Several restaurants line the street - the ones we tried are Er Compa (italian tapas, great rioja), the 'cheap' tapas bar directly after it (which I think is called El Bodegas) and Cueva Corocota across the road. Cueva Corocota is our favourite and highly recommended, a little pricier (Cantabrian menu).

In town we recommend the Framil Cafeteria (Calle Especeria) for lunch time tapas and our favourite and also the tripadvisor favourite El Tapeo de Cervantes. 24 seats only - very quirky and little - the food is fantastic, you must go there (in Calle Carcer). If you are a gin and tonic person go to the irish bar near the cathedral.

Another great holiday all round. A really good destination that you can fly to direct from Southampton. Travel from the airport to Malaga bus station is a 15-20 minute bus ride (2 euros each) and then a 10 euro taxi to the hotel.

Room Tip: Room 104 has a great view of the city and Gilbralfaro Castle.

We only stayed for one night. Amazing little hotel, very clean, spacious rooms. The owners were very hospitable and welcoming. Great views of the city from the balcony of the room. Would certainly recommend breakfast in the garden. About 20mins walk to town centre. There are some good restaurants within a 5 min walk. Owners very helpful with resturant recommendations and sightseeing. Will certainly recommend it as a place to stay.
