“Great apartment, great location”
Reviewed March 31, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My husband and I are just ending a 3 month stay in this apartment. Great apartment, great location, great owners! We could not have been happier.
The apartment is in an old building but with modern updates so it has charm AND efficiency. There is everything you could want, including sharp knives, wash clothes, novels in 3 languages (Spanish, English and German), and big doors/windows to let in the light. If we had a problem or question, Marta responded immediately. My husband had a dental emergency and Marta and Clemente arranged an appointment for him in the quickest possible time.
One of the things I like best about the apartment is the location. Pablo Picasso grew up in the other end of this building. The two living room doors, with tiny balconies, face Plaza de la Merced, one of the major plazas in the city. The view includes the military memorial and the Cathedral, both lit up at night. It looks like a postcard.
The front of this building and the identical one next door are lined with cafes. Walk out the door and you're in the middle of La Plaza, an excellent restaurant. Or try Citron, just down from the Fundación de Picasso, on the north side of the Plaza.
Musicians and street performers do their thing in front of the cafes, all through the day and night, hoping for tips.
Plaza Merced is where the 11 a.m. "free" tour meets daily, next to the statue of PIcasso, which is sitting on a bench. Lots of tours come through every day. Families with kids fill up the Plaza on weekends, as well as the occasional craft fair.
If you go around the corner of the Picasso gift shop, there's a droguería where you can get soap for the washer and dishwasher, a bakery, and a small grocery. Cross the small street and there is the equivalent of a $5 store, with everything you can think of in total chaos. We bought a notebook, toilet paper, and a casserole dish there.
From the Picasso gift shop, you can see the Málaga Mercado sign on the building across the street. This new market has stalls with produce, meats, fish, etc. open until 1:30 p.m. Also inside are lots of little tapas stalls, including a great bakery, that open for lunch and dinner.
Continue walking past the Mercado and you run into the Cervantes Theater, where an excellent symphony orchestra plays every month. Turn left and down another block and there are three outstanding restaurants--the two Cervantes next to each other on the left and the Italian La Romantica on the right.
Plaza de la Merced is at the end of the old town, where the city wall used to be. Cross the street at the light on the other side of the Plaza and you're two blocks from the Picasso Museum, a block from the Roman Amphitheater and the Alcazaba, and close to the Cathedral.
Who could ask for anything more?
Some people have commented on the noise. It is true that the Plaza has a lot going on. We slept in the back bedroom and were not bothered at all. We warned guests, who slept in the front bedroom, to bring earplugs. They did but didn't use them. They closed the wooden shutters on the window and that was enough.

“beautiful, high spec apartment, with a touch of luxury”

I stayed here with my husband and sister
Cant fault the apartment, the fixture and fittings and furniture are very high quality. We loved the lay out of the apartment and having 2 bathrooms is a huge plus. Its bright and cheerful, it had such a lovely feel to it. We felt very privileged to be in such a nice apartment in a great location.
The only down side is the noise. My sister slept in the bedroom at the front and the noise from the bars/cafes below were not a problem, however all through the night there seem to be comings and goings across the plaza. The owner does mention the noise so we did expect some, and it may be because we were there over the holiday period and there were a lot of people out partying. It was a pity.
Don't let that put you off it may not be something that would bother you and you would really miss out on a nice apartment.

“Fantastic apartment in an excellent location”

My husband and I stayed in the apartment for one week and can agree that it really is luxury in the heart of Malaga. So close to everything and a pleasure to return to at the end of the day. Being on the second floor of the building with two balcony windows in the sitting area opening onto the square, made for a lovely bright room. Open the windows and you could enjoy the buzz and the atmosphere of the Plaza, close them and it was quiet. The air conditioning was easy to use and very effective. The bedroom at the rear of the apartment was very quiet and the bed was comfortable, The lift was also a bonus for tired legs after sightseeing. Travelling from the airport to the apartment using the Airport bus was excellent (3 euros) - picks up outside the terminal, get off at the last stop, a five minute walk through the tunnel to the Plaza de la Merced..
We would definitely stay here again if we return to Malaga.

Not a lot to say really other than excellent position overlooking the square, good choice pf restaurants/bars under your window , handy for the main part of town, 15 in taxi from airport, not a lot else to say really - oh I nearly forgot - it is quite luxurious two French windows open wide onto the square from the bright, airy and well equipped lounge. modern kitchen also well equipped two very, very comfy beds with quality ensuite facilities.
Thoroughly enjoyable apartment in a thoroughly enjoyable location.
Air con, wifi, satellite telly, etc , etc, etc, Great base for sightseeing, then returning to re-group sitting on a chair looking out your window watching the world go about its business two flights below. Book this and you will not be disappointed in the slightest - we weren't.

The apartment is lovely, and is in a superb location close to the city centre. There are lovely bars and restaurants in the Square and close by, and its only a 15 minute walk to the Beach. The owner Marta is very helpful, and I will definitely return someday.

Very central for all central Malaga attractions.
Plaza Merced is a lovely square with a variety of restaurants/bars.
Malaga is somewhere we will visit again.
