“Views over the city”

We had a great few days staying in this flat. It's probably not for you if you don't like steps or heights, but if they don't worry you the reward is a light airy apartment with sweeping views across the city to the hills beyond. The roof terrace was lovely and we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast there each morning . The kitchen was very small but was pleasant to cook in as there were lots of windows you could open to get a view out and plenty of air. The hot water heater was very good and we never had to wait for a shower.

Don't worry when you arrive if the street looks a little unprepossessing - it's just a few steps away from the smart shops and restaurants of the town centre. It's about 20-25 euros for a taxi to the airport, and about 8-10 euros for a taxi to the Botanic Gardens (absolutely lovely- leave a whole day and do the walks). It's an easy 10-15 minute stroll to the harbour area, which is lovely, especially the gardens which run the length of it. The indoor market is amazing (10 mins walk) - we preferred it to the one in Barcelona as it was less crowded. Great tapas and a good place to go if you want to do some cooking at the flat. There are hundreds of bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk. Our favourite spot was the outside square of El Pimpi overlooking the Roman Theatre and Moorish castle - treat yourself to an afternoon glass of sweet wine and some of their fabulous desserts (some of the guidebooks say it is expensive, but not by British standards and it really is nice).

Communication with the owner, Gema, was easy and we were met at the flat by Rocio - all very friendly and no problem. There is a supermarket just around the corner (nice bread and the bars of dark chocolate with almonds are really nice. Fresh produce is much better from the market).

We loved Malaga - nicer vibe and better food than Barcelona. And palm trees and parakeets by the harbour - what could be better?

“Fantastic terrace overlooking Malaga”

Gema's flat is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The terrace was my favourite spot for a drink in the evening or reading a book over lunch. It is breezy and has a great view over the city. Gema's left detailed information on the highlights of Malaga which was really useful, and her friend Jorge was also very helpful, suggesting places to visit and even got a replacement key for us in case the first one didn't work so well. I really couldn't have asked for anything else. Tanks Gema!

Fantastic apartment in Malaga historical centre. It's off Carreteria which we consider to be one of the most vibrant areas of Malaga (particularly at night). Its a short walk anywhere else you want to go such as Larios or the port. The apartment is airy, spacious and very well kept. The best bit in my opinion is the outdoor terrace. Its an excellent size for a city centre apartment and while we were there it got the sun all day. The only negative aspect of the apartment is the stairs up to it as its on the fourth floor and there is no lift but its not an issue unless perhaps you have a lot of luggage. Communication with the owner was great and Rocio who let us into the apartment was lovely and very helpful as well. We will definitely stay here again.

Right from the beginning of the booking process we had a feeling that this was going to be a great week in a great apartment in a great city. And we were right! The owner's communication was brilliant throughout confirming everything immediately, responding to emails promptly and with full answers and providing those extra bits of information and help that show you how much someone really cares.

We were warmly greeted on arrival and taken up to the top floor - beware, there isn't a lift and those stairs seem to go on forever - to the most beautiful, spacious, carefully decorated from-top apartment. What a joy, it was so clean and everything was exactly as described. The rooms are all a good size - only two of us in a 2 bedroomed place so we had lots of space, but equally roomy for 4 adults or a family - and well equipped. The terrace is a delight and you get a great view of the old quarter of Malaga and all the sounds, smells and character of a vibrant, multi-cultured and exciting city. It's perfectly located too and only a short walk to the Cathedral, to Picasso's museum, to the Alcazaba, the Teatro Romano, the port/marina, the beach (nearest is about 10-15 minutes) and has numerous great tapas restaurants close by.

Shops are easily reached too. Anything from major department stores to local boutiques, quirky gift shops and supermarkets. Nothing is more than a short walk.

We totally loved Malaga and are already planning our return. If we're very lucky this apartment will be available for us again as we simply couldn't hope to find anywhere better! Thank you to Gema for making our stay in Malaga muy bueno! Muchas gracias x

Bonjour,

Tout d'abord, Merci pour votre opinion sincère sur votre séjour dans mon appartement.
Néanmoins j'aimerais apporter quelques précisions.

-l'appartement voisin est en effet déstiné à la location touristique mais les vis-à-vis restent très restreints et se retrouvent dans n'importe quelle location d'appartement qui n'est pas une chambre d'hotel.

-En ce qui concerne le prix, mon appartement est en cohérence avec le marché de location touristique de Malaga. De plus pour ce prix vous pouvez profiter d'un espace terrasse conséquent, avec vue sur toute la ville. Tout les appartements sur le marché ne peuvent se targuer d'un tel avantage.

-Je tiens a contester de la manière cordialement l'utilisation du mot "Vetuste" en ce qui concerne l'éléctro-Ménager. En effet nous remplaçons a neuf tout appareil défaillant aux premiers signes de panne. Ce qui n'est pas à votre goût ne peut être considéré comme vetuste.
De plus il convient de rappeller qu'il s'agit d'une location d'appartement et non d'une location d'appart-hotel ou la configuration est differente.

-En ce qui concerne le dernier point de votre review, a savoir l'accueil je vous rejoint sur le point de la sympathie de l'accueil. Nos Key-Managers connaissent la ville puisqu'ils y vivent et se feront un plaisir de répondre à toutes vos questions à votre arrivé et durant votre séjour.
De plus de nombreux flyers, detaillant les différents activités et lieux typiques de Malaga sont disponible dans mon appartement.

Je tiens encore une fois à vous remercier et j'éspère vous revoir bientôt dans mon appartement,

Cordialement,
Gema
