Rooms are pretty basic, but fine if you just want a bed for the night, although depending on who is in the hotel, it could be a little noisy. Nice 10/15 minute walk to the beach. The hotel is right in the centre of the old town, the location is excellent with everything you need on your doorstep. Handy tip,...

Here's our review, based on our 9B criteria: * Bed - a single bed with a comfy mattress. * Bedroom - small in size, as you would expect from a student room, but it's fine for a place to just 'bunk down'. It had a desk and shelves, plus lamp. It's worth bearing in mind that the Residence overlooks a...

Located right in the center of historic Malaga, this place is perfect as long as you don't forget you are in a student room. So do not expect a 4-star and you'll appreciate it. +: Location, cheap, clean, surprisingly quiet, Internet, friendly staff, lots of cheap cafes and bar around. -: No AC.

We wanted to find a cheap place to stay for a couple of nights in Malaga, so Santa Paula was our choice. Location had its pros and cons... Right in the middle of the old town, so close to everything (even parkinghouses) but even at this time of the year the street was noisy till 5 a.m. so if you...

Warning: If you do not hold a student card, you are not eligible! If you don't mind spartan living conditions, in a small and tired room, with no a/c (remember this is Southern Spain), and a window opening on a very noisy street (where restaurant owners chatter on until 1 am, followed by city cleaning services until 2 am); if...
