“Great position”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Stayed there one night. Would use again. So good to have parking when in strange city Yes we had to pay 13 euros for 24 hours and 1 euro an hour for extra. Still very cheap The staff were very friendly and spoke english The room was small but very comfortable. We had a great view of the cathedral from the 5th. floor

Clean and very reasonably priced. Air conditioning and a fridge in the room. Plenty of clean towels. Staff couldn't have been friendlier. Really central location. I would highly recommend and will be back for sure!

Just returned from a lovely stay at this hotel. It's perfectly situated in the old town of Malaga with the cathedral and museums all close by, within walking distance. The train and bus station are also within walking distance so perfect if you want to explore the other areas. The hotel is clean and comfortable, decent bathroom and shower, television, air con/heater, hairdryer. It doesn't have coffee/tea making facilities but you don't often get that in European hotels anyway but it's not a problem as there's a cafe just opposite which opens around 7 am. The staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay there again when next in Malaga. It has everything you need in a perfect location so wouldn't need to look around for another hotel. If you're going, make sure you visit El Pimpi, just around the corner, a fantastic bar/restaurant which a very old and very busy!

Room Tip: My room didn't have a view, overlooked a wall at the back of the hotel but it was so peaceful an...

The hotel is steps from the Alcazaba, the Cathedral and the Picasso Museum. It is quiet, as it is located on a pedestrian street. Literally hundreds of bars and restaurants are within easy walking distance. For this was a great place. Our room was clean, though somewhat small with a bed that sagged. Curiously, the bathroom was modern and fairly large, though there were a few spots of mold here and there. The hallways were old in need of cleaning. In short, the the price was great and the location cannot be beaten, but the hotel leaves a bit to be desired.

We stayed for four nights - we had a pretty small double room with bathroom and the bed was a little on the soft side. But the hotel was in a fantastic location right behind the cathedral and smack bang in centre of all the action. The rooms were spotless, we had a reasonable selection of English channels on the TV, the WiFi was brilliant, excellent shower with plenty of hot water, good air conditioning and the staff were lovely.

Only a room, no breakfast available, but the place has been beautifully renovated and is right in the centre of Malaga. We had a twin room with bathroom, TV and free WIFI also air conditioning. Not having breakfast is no problem as there is a lovely cafeteria right opposite. Don't pay more to stay in Malaga it just isn't worth it unless you plan to spend your entire stay in your room!!
