Can't review the rooms as I didn't stay there but the cafe is a delightful place to stop in for breakfast/coffee/informal food. The staff are delightful and it's a little haven of peace if you're tired of schlepping around the streets. Breakfast is simple but good and the salads are great. There is a roof terrace (four floors up and...

Didn't stay because we were misled about the parking. They were extremely unhelpful and although all rooms were fully occupied even after our cancellation they still charged us for not staying there. Rude ignorant and unprofessional.

Dear PiscinasCristalinas, Fortunately for us, as you confirm in your opinion, you did not stay in our hostel. Your derogatory words seem to us suspicious and are completely contradictory to all the other opinions. As anyone can see in all the opinions written about us, our strength is the kindness and proffesionality of the team working in Dulces Dreams. We...

A great little hostel. Very central and close to all the main attractions. The room was nice and spacious, and we had our own bathroom which was lovely. The staff were very friendly and we were allowed to check in early. Breakfast was lovely and worth the 5 euros. Our only complaint was that there was a nightclub nearby which...

We didn't had a reservation in the hostel, but we went to Dulces Dreams for breakfast, coffee and later on for some pie.Really nice ambiance, friendly personnel and great carrot cake. It's in the old center, but in a quiet location in front of one of the many churches of Malaga.

Excellent hotel with fantastic staff! The place is very cute and ideally located in the city centre of Malaga. The room is very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The view from the room was pretty nice (over a church) and the view from the rooftop terrace is amazing!! The only negative side was that the room I had...

The hotel and the staff were unexpectedly nice. Our room had a balcony with the old city view. The bar in the first floor had delicious breakfast for just 5 Euro. The whole place just gave you the feeling of home. The smile in the staff face just made our mornings :)

We visited Dulces Dreams during a trip back from the Alpujarras during June 2015, only using the cafe (at the time). Our one night stay was in a sterile 4* hotel by the river. At the time, though, decided a stay would be good. Returned to Malaga, this time as a destination in its own right. I can't fault either...

Dulces Dreams is a fantastic little boutique hotel in the centre of Malaga. It's a 10 minute, 20 euro taxi ride, from the main airport which makes it really accessible. The hotel is quirky. Rooms names include "cappuccino," "carrot cake," and "tiramisu!" The accommodation is fairly basic but you have everything you need for a short city break. Our room...

We stopped at the cafe here for a quick lunch before visiting the hammam next door. We were surprised and impressed with the quality of our food, especially the salad with avocado, olives, and a simple vinaigrette. We also tried a grilled sandwich, cherry hot chocolate and warm match soymilk. All were very good, and the service was friendly (and...
