Hotel Domus
Ranked #63 of 89 Hotels in Malaga
Reviewed 4 March 2013

I don't know how this is only a 1 star hotel when it could easily be a 3. Friendly, courteous staff (they speak English), clean modern rooms, far from the city center but convenient to the beach. Easy walking distance to the rows of chiringuitos for espeto de sardinas (sardines on a stick). The bus to town is a block away and the bus back is right outside the hotel. Would highly recommend staying here if traveling down the Costa del Sol.

The hotel is modern and nice, but it's a real pain in the rear to get here from the city center at night.
Then I liked the fact that the wi-fi works well and the modern furniture, but the low ground room is VERY small, with 2 beds stuffed in it, you cannot move. The bathroom is TINY, you cannot wash your face in the sink without making a mess (and wetting your shoes -.- ). We needed to keep the window open because the room had a foul smell. Apart of this, quite nice and good for young people.

Traveled to Padragelejo in Malaga for the first time. What a hidden gem of a place! (Padregalejo as an area & Hotel Domus) Not a brit in sight; cool laid back and very Spanish.
This 'hostel' was recommended to us by a local. Just a couple of rows back from a lovely tiny seafront, it is much more of a boutique hotel than a hostel. Sadly they were fully booked but will def recommend as we had a good look around and cant wait to return - next time we will book in advance!

Room Tip: go online and book in advance

This was my first time travelling on my own and the first time I had just booked flights and then looked for a hotel. I did a lot of searching on line and found this on the website Budgetplaces. Checked it on tripadvisor and it had good reviews so booked it based on that. Couldn't have been happier, place is a little gem. I felt totally safe, hotel is minimalistic and modern and most importantly clean. Hotel is a 2min walk to a great supermarket for supplies and a 5min walk to the beach where there are great restaurants and bars.
Hotel serves breakfast only and has a bar which is open into the evening. There are beach towels available to borrow, tv and free wifi in your room and the hotel is secured at night by a locked gate. There's a lovely seating area at the front of the hotel which has a covered area for some shade.
The area the hotel is in is very family oriented, very relaxed and not 'touristy' at all (no where locally to exchange money). Malaga is a 10min bus journey and is very cheap €1.20 one way. Loads to see in Malaga, a really beautiful city.
Would recommend this hotel and planning to go back next year with a friend. Great Internet find!!

We visited the hotel last year. The renovation was nearly finished. The hotel is very modern and gives you a luxury feeling. The staff is very friendly. Nice place to have a visit at the costa del sol. Shops restaurants and bars are at a walking distance and by bus you are in no time in the center of Malaga. Great place to taste Spain. When we go back to Malaga we'll book again. Great value for money.

Excellent value for money. Clean, spacious, well-located, quiet. Air-conditioning provided. Breakfast was optional. Nice terrace area outside for lounging. Car parking available on nearby streets. Ten minute walk to beach-side restaurants. Exceeded expectations for a short stop-over in Malaga.
