I would recommand this place. We had a really nice time there. Nice and clean room. Beautiful terrasse with view on the sea. The location is perfect, walkable distance from everything in Malaga. We appreciated our stay!

Only had an overnight and half day in Malaga, but this hotel was quite nice and perfectly located to make the most of it. Very near restaurants and the beach. Extra friendly service that exceeds expectations.

Almost everything was great at California, but the breakfast on the terrace deserves first place. It's not a Swedish buffet (the staff brings you the food), but there was so much food that we had to ask for less! We are still missing the daily jamon and goat cheese... Other than that, the beds were comfy, the city center was... More

Great hotel, with a tasteful decor, Art Deco. Friendly staff. Great location. I would have changed the way you get breakfast, it's brought to your table anything you want,....like buffet style/continental breakfast. The hotel is perfectly located if you like going to the beach. Plenty of bars and cafes in walking distance.

We had booked a standard room for our first night in Spain but upon late evening check in we asked to upgrade to superior. We got a lovely room with a balcony and cute design. The bathroom and bathtub was spacious and light. The receptionists we met were all wonderful. Breakfast was superb. We ate outside by all the beautiful... More

We had 3 well sized and comfortable rooms, individually styled, one with balcony. If you want to avoid generic hotels and go for something distinct - this would be ideal for you. The breakfast was superb - served to your table. The staff were friendly, keen to help and personal. Malaga centre is a short walk away. Super hotel -... More

We only stayed one night as we were going to a Jazz concert just 200m up the road. We had a room on the top floor at the rear which had a very small window overlooking the adjacent properties which was ok. Unfortunately they were doing road works of some sort somewhere in the street (on a Sunday night!) the... More

Didnt like this hotel at all. Not a good hotel. Dark, not modern... Staff unfriendly and rude.. Is quite near beach but rooms not so nice.. Malaga has better hotels. I would not recommend this hotel for anyone. Only for one night maybe.

We stayed two nights in Hotel California and would stay there again. We parked the car nearby for free. The doublebed was comfortable and we loved the breakfast. The house is very well decorated with plants everywhere inside as outside. There is a nice roof top terrace, the furniture from the terrace could probably be renewed but that didn't bother... More

This hotel had the perfect location for what we wanted. The beach only one street away and the center of town just a quick 15-20min walk away. There are some lovely restaurants nearby and great feel to the place. The hotel was perfect, very clean and with enjoyable breakfast on the terrace every morning.
