We stayed at Debambu for three nights in October. The apartments are tucked away in a small pedestrianised street. The taxi driver from the train station needed directions. The welcome by Jose was excellent, with a really helpful briefing about the area.

Although there were only two of us we had a duplex apartment on the third floor with an extra bedroom and bathroom up a spiral staircase. The apartments are a brand new conversion of an old building. They have been built to a very high standard and are well equipped. We couldn't fault it any way.

Everything in Malaga is outside the door - all the shops, restaurants cathedral and museums. Yet it is in a very quiet street.

At less than the price of a central hotel these apartments are a real bargain. Thoroughly recommended.

Spent one night with my partner and three children. It was really spacious with two bedrooms, kitchenette and small dining table. It was very easy to find. We caught a bus from malaga airport to alameda principal and then it was a short walk. We got a map from the tourist office nearby.

The main sights are close by and within walking distance. The hotel staff can't do enough for you giving all the information you need for your stay in Malaga.

The hotel is only a year old so the deco is very modern and bathroom of high standard. The only negative thing I can say is that my husband found the mattress a bit soft but I guess that's down to personal preference.

Outstanding Apartments
• Attentive reception staff gave advice on restaurants, local attractions and arranged airport transfers.
• Accommodation modern, roomy, clean, very well equipped kitchen, excellent bathroom. Wi-Fi fast and reliable. Very comfortable beds
• Accommodation spread over three floors, but the lift takes the strain
• Located in the middle of the old town, adjacent to bars, restaurants and shops, but totally noise free and relaxing
• Daily cleaning and towel change by efficient cleaning team
In short a gem, ticks all the boxes, I’ll be back

Room Tip: We had suite C3 - I would recommend it

We stayed there for a week. These apartments really deserve its first place among comparable lodgings on Tripadvisor. The apartments are exceptionally clean, well equipped and the service is simply great. The kitchen here enables one to cook even more complicated dishes using fresh food which can be bought at the nearby (100 meters) market to which the staff kindly points you. Even more, they are always open to help you with almost any kind of trouble or questions you have. Each of the apartments is cleaned every day if one wants. The apartments are very close to the Malaga city center and one can find restaurants and shops of any kind he likes no further than one kilometer, including beach.

Finally given the price per night, these apartements, in our opinion, outperforme almost all the other hotels in Malaga. However, it is advisable to reserve your room in advance as, understandably, they seem to be full most of the time during the year (we reserved our apartment almost half a year in advance). In case we will travel to Malaga again in the future, we are definitely staying here.

Booked the Debambu Aparments after reading their reviews on here, stayed 3 days and it was wonderful. They don't do any food but if they did you could eat it off the floor.
When booking accommodation we always look for location, price and security, Debambu fulfills each of these with ease
LOCATION: Right in centre of Malaga near every kind of restaurants, cafe, bars and shops you can think of. After driving from Puerto Banus we decided to leave our hire car at the airport where the bus dropped us so close to the Debambu it took a couple of minutes walk to check in, Alex walked to pick us up and walk us in, nice touch
PRICE: Very competive when comparing like for like and even hotels, the rooms were well fitted out with fridge/freezer, microwave, hair dryer and superb air conditioning
SECURITY: Felt very safe in Malaga and the apartments where so secure with entry system and the best room doors I have ever seen
The whole place was spotless with clean towels every day, bathroom had all lotions and potions including boxed toothbrushes waiting to be used
Good tip if flying in, take the bus it's 3 euros almost door to door, just ask the driver to let you off at the Marina
Breakfast , turn right out of the Debambu in 20M turn left onto shopping street on your right about 40M is a Patisserie which does Cafe con leche and a beautiful fresh croxiant for 1.60 euros
Turn left out of the apartments and straight over and you'll find the fruit and fish market, fantastic fresh fruit and veg with every kind of shell fish you've every seen, why not buy a whole melon sliced as you wait and set off to the nearby beach
Lastly I must mention Jose, this man is a star, nothing was to much trouble for him, we have already decided to return to Malaga which really surprised with its beauty and shopping and of course there is only one place we will stay, yes Debambu

Room Tip: With only 9 rooms my tip would be book early as rooms are brilliant and you won't be disappointe...

Spent a week here, would go back tomorrow given the chance! It was easy to find and Jose on reception couldn't have been more helpful. The apartment was very well appointed spotlessly clean ; within walking distance of shops, bars, cafes restaurants etc and easy to get to the harbours, train station and buses. A very safe, friendly place - Malaga is a beautiful city and I would recommend these apartments. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

Room Tip: All seemed good, our room was at the rear/side, very little noise at night despite being so central
