We stayed here as a family visiting Tarifa for a working holiday in August 2015 and we absolutely loved it! The design of the interior and the atmosphere it creates is fully in tune with the calm and considerate approach that Bjorn, Marta and Somaya bring to looking after you. We stayed in Alako, which is furnished with a nice... More

We were disappointed to find that for 180 euros in their larger Alako apartment, everything was bought in from Ikea. The beds were the worst - hard wooden bases with thin cheap mattress and also fairly thin, poor quality sheets and cheap rubbery pillows. The a/c was also not very efficient and rattled all night. The shower and bathroom were... More

To regret to be sorry about not to have been satisfied your expectations but this is impossible to achieve with all clients. About the furniture only three kitchens in Koala are from Ikea and some beds,a lot of things are hand made and for example the lamps ,our passion,are unique vintage pieces from several backgrounds.We are also sorry for the...

Firstly the people who run this place are lovely people. They were really interested in us as people, we were not just another customer. Our room was literally beautiful, the shower was amazing and they have loads of cute touches like hanging fresh bread on your door at 8am and providing a expresso machine in your room. We are Vegans... More

The hotel is in a great location and yet not too noisy. The room is very clean and I could see a personal touch in the decoration. They supplied us with orange juice daily which we very much appreciated. Bjorn and Marta and Sumeja are very friendly and helpful in finding a good place to eat. We will be sure... More

Really lovely service and rooms in a great location! Set right in the centre of Tarifa's old town, it has access to all the bars and restaurants as well as being well within walking distance to the beach (5 mins). Rooms are joined by a charming courtyard, styled with the typical Moorish architecture that is so quintessential to Tarifa

We stayed 2 nights in hotel Koala in the small room on the top floor. The room is very nicely decorated, with a high ceiling which gives it still a spacious feeling. And most important, very clean! The plus of this hotel is the very friendly staff, they are always in for a chat and give excellent tips for restaurants... More

I had been staying in Algeciras, which I would never suggest staying, when I heard about this place. It is absolutely wonderful and the rooms are absolutely perfect. There is an old world charm while still having very modern amenities. Truly, it felt like home and was extremely comfortable. I have another trip planned to be out in this area... More
