We booked a night at the Hostel (Pension) Juanita in Malaga for a quick overnight stay prior to a cruise (Actually, we stayed there a night on either end of the cruise). You don't expect much when you rent the best room a hotel has for just EUR 35, but for our purposes it was great: A comfy bed, clean room with en suite shower, toilet and sink, and a very pleasant reception staff.
It is right in the center and on a quiet side street. The immediate streets are pedestrian-only, but the closest arterial is 2 blocks away.
Therein was the biggest problem: Taxis can’t just pull up in front. We took a can from the airport at 10 pm, and another driver had to instruct our cabbie as to how to find the place. Even so, we got dropped a block away with bad instructions and spent a while strolling into cafes and asking whether anyone had ever heard of it. Finally, a nice elderly couple on their evening stroll literally walked us to the door!
The walls are very thin, so wherther the room is 'quiet' depends on your neighbors. We had no complaints. Cafes are steps away, you have 24-hour access, and the price makes it irresistible for a short stay when you'll weither be sleeping or out of the (very small) room.
Getting a cab back to the airport was easy – the hotel’s reception set it up the night before, and showed us exactly where to go to meet the cab.
It was a brisk 30-minute walk to the area of the port where our ship was moored. The hotel’s a great ‘base’ from which to explore beautiful Malaga.
