From the roadside this hotel doesn't look to be in a very attractive area, as it is on a busy main road. Also, there is a big metal gate to get into the hotel.

What a pity it looks so unappealing from the outside, because as a place to stay for a couple of nights it does very well indeed. It is really a very very nice place to stay.
Once you pass through the gate, the hotel itself is very welcoming. The hosts go out of their way to be pleasant and helpful, the central courtyard in the hotel is a nice place to spend the early evening - it has some garden furniture, a shady area, lots of plants, and is very quiet. There are also bottled and canned drinks for sale from a machine, a lounge, a room for internet, and if you wanted it you could order drinks etc from room service. The outside walls around the courtyard show a bit of peeling paint, but don't be put off by that. The hotel is very clean and well looked after, it really feels like a family business.
The bed rooms have recently been decorated, and the bathrooms are well appointed and work well. The rooms were nicely and simply furnished, better than basic furnishings, the air conditioning units worked well, and security is good with the card entry system.
The hotel lobby isn't manned all of the time, but there is an entry phone system to enable you to get in touch with the people who run it. Breakfast can be available from the cafe next door - which I did - for under 4 Euros.
The hotel is one block back from la carihuela which is the prettier part of Torremolinos, more of a fishing village feel, with lots of bars and decent restaurants with fish specialities. The bakery, La Tahoma de Torremolinos in La Carihuela provides good snacks throughout the day as well.
So, I wouldnt say this was a place for longer than a week - but for a few days, or for a couple without children, this would be superb. Most of the guests were the kind of people who like to keep themselves to themselves, and to explore - younger couples and singles - and this place suited us all well.

Room Tip: I had a room which faced into the courtyard rather than onto the main road - room 201 - and this was fine. The other rooms 101, 301 etc face inwards and are a good bet.

What a wonderful surprise this Hotel turned out to be. We had reserved a suite which turned out to be a lovely spacious, airy and beautiful room. Spotlessly clean, well maintained complete with a small kitchenette with a 2 burner hob and fridge. It had a sea view and overlooked the garden. Although this hotel is on the main thoroughfare there is NO noise to keep you awake as the high wall and garden keeps it peaceful.
The staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble to help with, car parking at a greatly discounted rate next to the Hotel as was the bar associted with the hotel.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Reserve a suite, well worth the little extra charge.

Stayed in this hotel on the 19-02-2012 to the 29-02-2012 was very impressed with this hotel although from the outside i panicked a bit as it does not have much appeal from the outside,but once you enter this little paradise you will be welcomed and shown your room by a lovely lady who also speaks english.Our room was cleaned every day and was very spacious with air-con,hairdryer and tv.We also had a little hob oven although we never used it.I would recommend this Hotel to anyone although i dont think its for kids as there is no swimming pool but our pool days are over.Security is exellent in this hoteland you dont need a safety box.Well done Albero i shall return.

I booked this hotel as part of a budget break and was not expecting a lot. Paid a little bit extra for a suite - still cheap. We had the most peaceful nights sleep each night we were there. The hotel is on the main road into Torremolinos centre ( 3 stops from the bus stop just across the road) and the surrounding area is a bit scruffy. However it is low rise and very pleasant inside the gates. Very helpful owners if help is needed - clean and our room had a large bathroom ( with a bath). A short walk to the beach.Free internet. A/c ( or heater as we needed!) We would go back again . Not really suitable for children in my opinion as no pool but good base for the area and price.

My self and 3 friends went to torremolinos for the weekend friday to monday and booked this hotel on the internet and what a lovely hotel it is, we stayed room only the rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean the rooms were cleaned every day even the day we were leaving. All though there is no pool It is just 2 mins to the beach. the location is great only about 1/2 mile from bellamadena. perhaps not ideal for small children (nothing for them to do) Rosthea the owner couldnt do enough for us. A good tip passed on to us from a couple we met on the plane is dont get a taxi at the airport but get on the train it was only 1euro 30 cents to our resort compared to 25 euro in the taxi trains very clean and easy to use.
