“Great place to stay with a couple of drawbacks”
Reviewed 5 August 2012 via mobile

My partner and I stayed here for a week in early August 2012. We were in Malaga for a week of relaxation in the middle of our backpacking around Europe. We were welcomed warmly by Antonio and his family at reception and he gave us a good run down of the city attractions, bus routes, beaches etc. we were very thankful for this. Our room was great, big enough for us (me especially as I'm very tall and finding rooms and bathrooms which accommodate this are tricky), with ample wardrobe and drawer space for us to unpack into. The room (#5), had air con, a good TV, a proper double bed, toilet with bidet, good sized basin and the shower over the bath had great pressure with plenty of headroom! We had a great view out over the town and down into the port and sea.
We attempted to dine in the attached restaurant and bar area. We thought the food was very lackluster, it seemed it was frozen meals from the supermarket just re-heated, not what you would expect from any food establishment. We ordered a pizza and seafood paella. I finished most of my pizza but my partner couldn't stomach a mouthful of the paella and left because it made her feel ill.
There is a bus station right outside the hotel in both directions. We used this service regularly, but also walked into the center as it was a pleasant walk of about 30 mins. Buy a 10 trip bus card though, it's cheaper and can be recharged when you run out-get them at the tobacconist shops.
Given the Spanish eat so late in the evening it was interesting to find the last bus was at 9pm, so dining late, as we did, made it harder to get home at night. Taxi is an option but we mostly walked to save the money.
Speaking of taxis, it's only €8-10 to get a taxi to/from the main train station and this is the best way to get to the hotel initially.
The other drawback for us was that English was not widely spoken by any of the staff other than Antonio, who was very good! This made it difficult to request things when he wasn't around. For instance, there were a couple of times our room wasnt replenished with towels or toilet paper so asking for these simpe items was a tad difficult. Also upon check out, we were presented with another bill asking for €370. We had already paid the balance in full online with our original booking and only needed to pay for some washing that we had had done. It was very hard to explain this to the bloke on the desk because he didn't understand we had paid. It was only through rummaging through the rubbish in our room that we found the receipt to prove we had paid-even then he took a photocopy as he seemed skeptical as to our honestness. TOP TIP-HOLD ON TO YOUR RECEIPT!
For this particular trip hotel casa Vazquez was perfect for our needs, good value for money and in a handy location. Recommended.

Spent 1 night in this hotel.

We booked a standard room as on the website it didnt mention that it comes with 2 twin beds. We were only informed about this on arrival and as we wanted 1 double bed, we were offered a superior room for an additional fee of 11 euros.

Superior room was very nice: spacious, with distant sea views, nice and modern TV and hot shower. A nice touch was all the small items in the bathroom like shampoo, comb, a candle, etc. There are coffee making facilites in the room and an air-con to maintain nice and comfortable temperature in the room.

It is a family-run hotel with polite staff and easy check-in/out and free wifi and parking.
Recommended for city trips as has good bus connection to the centre of Seville.

Room Tip: Double rooms have twin beds, if you want a double bed - book a superior room!

I spent 3 nights in this hotel in Malaga with my boyfriend. It's situated in a residencial area not far from the town centre. There's a bus-stop just in front of the hotel: it leaves every 20 mins and in 10 mins arrives to the main square until 21:00 everyday.
Taxis, however, are not expensive: 6 euros to back from the town at night.
Our welcome in the hotel was very friendly. The owners are a family with two brothers and their parents that live just there (in Casa Vazquez).
Antonio, one of the brothers, was very kind to give us all the information we need about Malaga and its attractions, and suggested us to eat something in his restaurant for lunch. The daily menu was only 7 euros and it was the best lunch we had in all our trip in Andalusia!
The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the bathroom is not so big but useful.
The hotel has a wi-fi connection but only in the reception room, and it's for free.
If we'll come back in Malaga we'll surely choose this hotel again!

We had booked this hotel for a 2-night stay at the start of our holiday. It's not very easy to find, but when we arrived (hours before check-in time), we were made to feel very welcome. It's a family-owned hotel, run by two brothers with help from their parents. One of the brothers, Antonio, speaks good English and was very friendly and helpful to us.

The hotel is about 2 miles from the centre, with plenty of free parking nearby. It's on a bus route, which makes it easy to visit the city without the problems of navigating and parking. A taxi back from town (after the buses had stopped) cost us just under 5€.

It has cafe and restuarant, with a small shop, all of which are used regularly by locals, so we really felt we'd arrived in Spain. Breakfast can be bought in the cafe, and the restaurant does a good-value complete lunch for only 7€. There's a computer with internet access available.

The rooms at the back have panoramic views over the city to the sea (the view includes building sites and pylons, but is still quite splendid). The twin-bedded rooms at the side just look out onto a wall, so we were glad we'd paid the extra for the double with view. It was all very clean and comfortable, with a small but spotless bathroom.

For visitors who want to get out of the city and explore the countryside nearby, the hotel is well placed, as it's on the road that leads directly out to the Montes de Malaga.

The welcome we received at Casa Vazquez really got our holiday off to a good start.
