Lovely little hotel just a short walk from the centre of Malaga. I requested a quiet room, which was incredibly clean and a good size. It's very close to the beach - would stay here again. Free wifi that was very good - my phone picked it up from the bar across the road. Air conditioning was also very good....

The hotel is close to the beach and only a 15 minute walk into town. It isn't fancy but is very charming and clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you're not too concerned about amenities and just want a nice home base while you're on vacation.

Actually the only Malaga hotel I ever stayed at and it was my 16th spring with them. This is a second generation family hotel run by three brothers and their sister, which assures a pleasant personal touch. The breakfast room has now been relocated in the front with more light and a wiev to the terrace and street. Each guest...

Superb little romantic and unique hotel. Nothing fancy, but delivers fully on what they promise. Close by the beach, clean rooms, friendly staff, unique interior and great breakfast. Had a rough first night, but they immediately swapped our bed with a brand new madras.

We stayed one night while travelling through. The hotel isn't fancy, but it, and our room, was clean, and the people were very friendly and helpful. Room 304 has a very nice outside terrace with an ocean view. Parking is a problem. We didn't know you could book it in advance, and all we found was a public lot which...

We choose this hotel for two nights due to the location and cost. Very nicely decorated lobby area, has super outside terrace with sea view to bring your wine. Very nice breakfast. Forgot to reserve parking at a reduced rate so found local garage to be quite costly. Rooms were large and comfy but we had a room on 5th...

Let's start with the positive things. The breakfast in the hotel was very nice with fresh orange juice. Also, the staff was very friendly. Location is good with lots of parking opportunities for our car around and beaches close bye. The room itself was just a bad. It was on the top floor, but elevator went only one floor below....

We were just in Malaga for a business trip and added some fun, too. We stayed at Hotel California and we really loved it. The location of the hotel is excellent, a 20 min walk from the vibrant and magnificent Malaga center, a 5 min walk from the beach and close to the exits to the main roads to other...
