Was 6 nights here. Very handy for everything - less than five minutes walk to bus and train stations and five to beach. Room was quite nice with some quirky furniture and daft decor (mine was Jacques Cousteau). Balcony got plenty of sun. The room could have been a bit cleaner (floors esp.) but was OK. Nice sunny balcony. Pity... More

We liked this hotel. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Good value for money and good choice for breakfast. We liked the themed rooms and the time machine for the lift.5 minute walk to the beach and the bars and restaurants.

Very handy for the train station. Just opposite but you must keep an eye out as the FrontPage is small. My room was comfortable with WOW decor. I won't spoil the surprise. Big shopping centre opposite with Primark. 10 mins from the Marian. Lots of restaurants and cafe. Spotlesly clean.

I stayed in a room that had a chronic mould problem, that had extended to the bed... probably life-threatening if you are asthmatic. The shower was hand-held and freezing cold, regardless of when I used them Stayed in room 108, lacked of double-glazing meant one heard everything on the street, and all traffic. . VERY disappointed.

Well placed and well priced, the Hostal El Cid is the perfect stopover for people making onward connections in Fuengirola and Malaga. The hostal will certainly not win any prizes for its decor or facilities, but then again it makes no claims to do so, and it does its job as a hostal perfectly well.
