    Good location!! However room allocated was right above a italian restaurant which opens till (we were given a room on the 2nd floor, i.e. the floor above the restaurant). The accommodation itself is basic, nothing fancy. We went there during off-peak season so facilities was ok - we didn't have to wait for toilet/bathroom etc. However, it may get crowded...

    I have used a variety of budget accommodation on my travels and have tolerated some fairly rough and ready places. However I don't expect to pay over the odds for such accommodation. This place was shocking. It was dirty, there were insufficient (shared) showers and I couldn't get one to produce hot water, one shower was completely blocked, the breakfast...

    If you want calm and relax don't choose this hotel, but if you want to enjoy the centre of malaga, the nightlife and shopping it's perfect. The rooms are simple, the bed comfortable and the bathroom shared with other hosts, but it's clean. We have stayed there during 4 days and it was nice. The breakfast is REALLY POOR, but...

    I have spend there 4 nights with a friend and it was quite good. the rooms are pretty small but for that price is perfect. The hole residence is quite old, but it has what you need for spend there a few days. The rooms that are facing the street are very loud. I recommend to use Oropax. They have...

    I knew exactly what I was getting when I booked this hotel - so I was happy with my stay. It was a bit difficult to find the place in the middle of a Easter Procession, but the good thing is they have a 24 hour reception desk. The bed was comfortable, the room was soundproof (I heard no noise...

    This is in a very central location, so full marks for that. The room is clean, it's also very basic, but you get what you pay for, and in terms of what I paid it was fine. The room I was in was over a street, which did have some noise, but that certainly isn't the fault of the hotel....

    Hi, Over here for a few days, looking to buy a property. In trying to keep the cost down, I booked 4 days in this place. Very basic, first experience of a shared bathroom. No problems, nice and clean, 3 on my floor so access is fine, rooms are a bit noisy and a bit run down, but otherwise clean,...

    Firstly, this accommodation is central. Right next to everything. I live in the centre of a large town in the UK and know there can be noise levels. This, however, is ridiculous. With the best silicone earplugs and using all window shuttering devices, I cannot stand the constant street noise. There is drilling:,street carts cleaning all night, and a man...

    Excellent location...only here for a night en route to the airport so haven't quite found the beach but did get to the port which is very close...Helpful staff! Building feels a bit dodgy though. Long corridors, quiet at times. Brilliant value for money! Room fine but like a deserted student dorm big time..
