I had the privilege of being the first person to stay in this darling, newly renovated studio. The owner, Antonio, decorated and outfitted this apartment so lovingly and thoughtfully I can't say enough great things about it.
First, the location can't be beat. Walk down the stairs and out the front door, and you're right in the middle of the historic walking district filled with quality shops (as opposed to touristy trinket shops), taperias, cafes, restaurants, heladerias, the main cathedral, and a number of wonderful museums and historic churches. There are people out and about walking around all the time; you can spend hours sitting outdoors with fabulous coffee, sangria, or tapas and people watching, yet the apartment is on the quieter end of the calles. On a nice day it's an easy walk to the Mercado Ataranzada, as well as the main park, port, and beach.
The apartment is the ideal size for one or two people, with a very comfortable king bed, memory foam mattress and regular foam pillows, and amazing (and fun to deploy!) room-darkening blinds to facilitate your siesta. Other thoughtful details include reading lamps by the bed and sofa, lots of places to put your stuff--including a closet with a very fun pull-out hanging rack--a power strip to increase the number of available outlets, and a tv with lots of channels. The kitchen has everything you could need: new fridge, mini-dishwasher, and washing machine, a two-burner cooktop, electric kettle, coffee maker, citrus squeezer, toaster and microwave, wooden cutting boards and a lovely array of dishes. Antonio also has very thoughtfully provided an umbrella, beach towels, a good hairdryer, body wash for the shower, and a cozy sofa throw. The wifi is fast and reliable.
The water pressure in the shower is perfect, with ample hot water. There's also a heat and air conditioning unit in the apartment; there were some unseasonably cool days when I was there, and the heater took the chill out of the air perfectly.
What's more, Antonio is warm, friendly, available, and at your service. He took me under wing, equipped me with a list of his favorite places for tapas and churros--a couple of which he showed me in person-- and helped me practice and improve my Spanish (he's a Spanish professor, which was evident from the first day he started instructing me on proper use of the future subjunctive).
The only caveat I have is that the apartment fronts on a busy road, so there is some road noise. I didn't find it bothersome because the windows weren't open much of the time, as the weather was cool. If you think it might bother you, then I encourage ear plugs at night. The noise really was minor in my opinion, and overall the benefits of this apartment and the great price completely outweigh any bother there.
I hope to have the opportunity to stay there again when I return to Malaga.
Give this darling apartment a try; you'll be happy you did.
