Unlike other recent reviews I found the staff excellent - both of the receptionists we encountered spoke excellent english.

The rooms are very basic but spotlessly clean and the shower was hot.

The location is excellent, just a few mins from the centre of the old town.

This is a no frills hotel but we got our room for just under 30 Euro - an absolute bargain!

Staff at front desk was extremely rude, when asking at what time was the check out on the next day, the gentlemen would just reply in Spanish.
I was given a smoking room, the smell was really bad and I wasn't given any towels for the 1st night.
The only good point of this hotel was the location, right in the center.

We had to stay overnight in Malaga because we had a very early flight the next morning. The hotel is only a couple of 100 metres away from the old city and the rooms are very clean. We only paid 33€/night for the two of us.

The hotel is quite basic but clean and well located - quite close to both railway/bus station, shopping, restaurants and the beach.
The rooms are modern but small and sadly there is no safe on the room and no English speaking TV channels. I am glad we did not sign up for breakfast buffet since it was very basic even considering the quite low price.
The biggest drawback with the place was the younger girls working in the reception that was not very experienced or service minded. Most of the time they where talking in the phone (their own private cellphone) or with male friends who where visiting rather than tending to the guests. The more experienced women that sometimes where working in the reception was very service minded though.

Room Tip: The hotel is located on a quiet street so most rooms should offer good sleep comfort.

We stayed for one night for the price of €50. The hotel was cheap, quite central to everything and clean! The room is small and cramped but we just needed a place to sleep after a long day. Overall I would go back but for €50 maybe there could be somewhere better around for the same price
