Down a quiet street close to the centre of Malaga La casa Mata Central feels more like a hostel than a hotel but that’s certainly no bad thing. The rooms are light and airy with brightly coloured feature walls making the whole place feel rather fun. There’s a small kitchen facility where you can use the hotels teas and coffee’s (free of charge) that I’m sure becomes a cool social area during the summer (we arrived very late at night during winter) . The prices are pretty reasonable and my only complaint is that there’s only one bathroom and it’s quite a walk if, as we were, your room is on the other side of the hotel. The shower is also barely able to make it past a light drizzle which is a little bit of a nuisance.
As with most other places we visited in Andalucía the wifi here was pretty rubbish but at least the guy behind reception did try his best to fix it. Speaking of which the staff here are incredibly friendly and helpful and that to me always makes such a huge difference.
Other people have complained about the noise; this is not something I could verify since it was lovely and quiet when we were there but that may have been down to the fact we arrived in winter...
