“Great value basic hotel in ideal location”
Reviewed 28 February 2010

Stayed here one night before flying home from Malaga. Very friendly basic comfortable clean hotel in a perfect location in the centre of Malaga. No frills but perfectly adequate and staff very friendly and helpful . Great value 36 Euro per single room. There is no restaurant but plenty of tapas bars and cafes nearby

This hotel is nice, clean and has good service.
Pricing is quite ok for this standard hotel and the athmosphere is homey.
I can really recomend this hotel to anyone who just want to stay for a night, spend a week in Malaga or for bussiness trips.

No frills, but everything solid and in proper working order, rooms clean and quiet. Central location for local places of interest, and eating/drinking, 20 mins stepping out to railway/bus stations for trips elsewhere. Stayed 7 days.

We liked our stay here, though we didn't spend much time in the hotel. It's in a great location, a few blocks from the nightlife, and about a 15 minute walk to the beach. The rooms are nothing to write home about, but they were modern, clean and had AC. There wasn't an internet connection while we where there - it was kind of annoying to have to find an internet cafe. I would go back.

Stayed here 5 nights between Jan 24-31, 2009. The hotel has been refurbished and the rooms are very nicely decorated. The bathrooms are brand new as well. I stayed in two different rooms and saw two others.All were furnished to the same high standard. There are very few rooms with a view as it is located in the center and it's just building to building. The location can't be beat: 50 meters to Alcazaba or The Cathedral, 150 meters to Picasso museum, 250 meters from the beach, about the same distance to the bus station which takes you to Nerja,Torres del Mar, Torremolinos etc. The airport bus (nr.19) stops about 100 meters away (Banque Espana which is next to last stop-Last stop is only another 100 meters or so). The staff was very professional, very polite and yet personal as well. At 36 euros a night (low season), I can't imagine you will find better all-around value for your money in Malaga center.
