“Convenient and full of charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

The hotel is located 5 to 10 minutes walk from the beach and right in front of a bus stop to arrive from and go back to the airport. It is near the streets of Carihuela, where you can eat good fish at reasonable prices. Our room was clean and AC worked fine, the bed was ok. This small hotel has a lot of charm with its small courtyard and has reasonable prices. If they took better care of their garden (when I was there it need some watering) it would be a fantastic place!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the courtyard

It is a very nice hotel, clean and well located. Near "Carihuela Beach" which is full of shops and places to eat. Great for couples but a bit difficult for old people, it has a lot of stairs. The parking is quite cheap 7,50€ per day during the summer, and it is very close to the hotel.

i stayed in villa albero this june when i visited south of spain... the place is in the center of torremolinos, close to the beach, close to the center and train station... rooms are really big and comfortable (except the tv set that didn't work), bathroom fully renovated, with tub and bide, very good pressure of the water day and night...the most amazing part is the garden (patio) so beautiful and quiet and literally cool (never needed the ac)... doors have card-system locks...room is cleaned every day...hosts are helpful and kind... simple rooms like mine don't have a fridge, but suits include a kitchenette... i recommend the place....

This was my very first visit to Torremolinos and I had prepared myself to expct the worse, lager louts, drunks in the streets and generally noisy and the hotel not to be very clean but bearable. I was so wrong... this hotel was lovely, rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, nothing was dated all quite modern. Although our room did not have a fridge. We were a group of 7 ladies, I was in a twin room and some had a suite which had a mini fridge and small kitchenette. The hotel manager was very accomodating and polite, as was his wife. There is a courtyard were there are table and chairs. Altough there isn't a bar in the hotel there is a small bar next door that serves drinks and tapas which can be taken into the hotel. Breakfast can also be served in the couryard from next door if you let them know. The hotel is situated next door to a bigger hotel Princess Solar, you may need to mention this to the taxi driver from the airport, as ours drove straight past the hotel. We felt very secure as there is a locked gate and accessable with your room card, then another thick wooden door again you will need your room key. The beach is about 10-15 minutes walk which is pleasent. If your looking for lively then this isnt for you. Even the beach at this end is more Authentic. We stayed 4 nights and would stay again.

Room Tip: We atayed in Room 108, Single rooms are very small

We found this hotel via the Easyjet / booking.com web site. Looking for a six day break in the sun away from dull UK. The price looked good and the reviews good so we booked it. What a pleasant surprise we had, the hotel is small snuggled next to the big Princessa Solar and is far different from the big style hotels. The Villa Albero is a family run, fifteen room hotel. The rooms are around a rugged and peaceful central garden. Sitting here writing this the birds are singing and we could be a million miles from the hurly burly of Torremolinos but in fact we are only a four minute walk from the beach. Our twin room is impeccabley clean and all the facilities work perfectly. It has the true feel and ambiance of the real Spain. The family treat their guests as part of the family. WiFi signal is strong in every part of the hotel and it's rooms. If you are looking for a small friendly hotel near the beach give Villa Albero a try, we will definitely be back.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

My wife and I stayed for two days for her birthday, to use as a base to walk around La Carihuela as neither of us had been to the area before. We parked in the underground public car park, expecting to have to move the car after unloading as the day rate was some 21 Euro, but the Villa Albero has a few reserved bays, and a voucher bought from the hotel reception reduced this to 5 Euro a day. The lady in reception was very helpful, speaking excellent English, and the rest of the staff were unobtrusive. The room was clean, comfortable, and well furnished, and the bathroom had a bath as well as a shower. I thought the courtyard could have done with a little gardening, but my wife disagreed - she likes the rustic look! I suspect we went at the very beginning of the season (early April) as the hotel bar wasn't open while we were there (and there is no restaurant), but that was not an inconvenience because there was another bar, serving food and drinks, next door - we suspect it may be run by the hotel - and others close by. Although the hotel was on an unimpressive main road, the room was quiet at night. The staff in the Irish Pub opposite (O'Brien's) said that Torremolinos had experienced an unusually quiet 2012 summer and winter, which probably accounted for the number of businesses seemingly closed and for sale or rent particularly in the area away from the seafront, but we liked the variety of shops and restaurants along the promenade, and ended up eating in an authentic Moroccan-style restaurant on both evenings we were there. We had a room at the back of the courtyard on the ground floor, and were able to sit outside the room to rest in the shade when we got back from our walks. Given the limited facilities I would agree with other reviewers that it is probably not a place for a long stay - more a room to return to and sleep than somewhere to spend a lot of time - but as a base for us for a couple of days it was perfect, and we shall probably return.
