Great location in Malaga centre close to all attractions, quite and very clean, good value for money and has good cheap parking. Down side no breakfast or tea & coffee facility in room. Would stay there again.

Perfect location if you want to be in central Malaga, right by the foot of the Alcazaba and near to the cathedral and Picasso museum. However, the rooms are rather small for what you pay and some of them have windows facing inwards - all a bit cell-like. Was very quiet at night so I slept well.

Expensive hotel with poor standard. No facilities, no breakfast. The room we got had a window but it was facing a really small inner yard. Not a recommendable hotel. Even though there is a free wifi it is working poorly.

We only stayed overnight for the Jazz Festival but the hotel was the perfect choice. Like everyone else has said, the location is THE BEST, but everything else was also excellent. It is clean, comfortable and friendly. And inexpensive too - that's good enough for us. We didn't try the food and beverage department at the hotel - all the...

Fairly ordinary hotel except for the location. Situated a short walk from Malaga Cathedral and an even shorter one from the Roman theatre and entrance to the Alcazar. Although. the hotel is in the Old Town it is on a pedestrianised road and does not suffer from street noise. The room I had was quite small but comfortable with a...

The location is great, the rooms are basic but oke. It could be a bit cleaner, the headboards of the beds contained quite the amount of dust. The beds are comfortable and so is the shower, also for taller people.

Located in the old part of town. Easy walking distances to historical and religious sites, museums, dining, shopping, and the water front. If you drive make sure you have a tiny car due to the parking garage and narrow streets. A 1960 style atmosphere in the rooms, but great WiFi.

Very well located small hotel in the centre of Malaga's old quarter...BUT very disappointed with cleanliness of room on arrival at 2200 hrs which necessitated a change of room. Also, very poor attitude of staff when presented at check-out with two accounts for separately booked nights in the same room with Euros 25 price difference! Not amused especially in view...

I stayed at the hotel for one night, went to Granada for a week, and then back to Malaga for two nights. The hotel is basic but very comfortable and clean. The location is fantastic, just around the corner from the Roman theatre and Alcazaba, close to the Cathedral - in fact, as the city is not huge, it is...
