The room and the bathroom were clean and that's a good point but for the rest very poor: moquette on the floor and dirty in corridor, breakfast was poor and lacks of quality products, WiFi not detected in our room but only in the corridor. Too expensive... More

Very handy for the train station. Just opposite but you must keep an eye out as the FrontPage is small. My room was comfortable with WOW decor. I won't spoil the surprise. Big shopping centre opposite with Primark. 10 mins from the Marian. Lots of restaurants and cafe. Spotlesly clean.

I stayed in a room that had a chronic mould problem, that had extended to the bed... probably life-threatening if you are asthmatic. The shower was hand-held and freezing cold, regardless of when I used them Stayed in room 108, lacked of double-glazing meant one heard everything on the street, and all traffic. . VERY disappointed.

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
