Reviewed 26 November 2013

We stayed here for one night, the hotel is clean and safe, the rooms are small as asid in previous reviews but it was perfectly adequate for our short stay. The staff are friendly, helpful and speak English, the breakfast is served over the road at a local cafe and it was very nice. The parking is not great - it's a couple of blocks away in a public car park but it is probably as good as can be expected for a small hotel such as this. The location of the hotel is great for local bars and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for 3 nights and although the room was on the small side it was more than adequate for our needs. The hotel was very clean and well maintained and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Within 5 minutes walking distance of shops bars and restaurants the location is very good.
We would have no hesitation in booking this hotel again.

We spent a few days in this hotel and left quite satisfied. Rooms and service were ok and the hotell is well located. There are some good places to have a drink or eat a few steps away. On the negative side: our room was quite small (too small with a baby bed in it) and not enough isolated against noice coming from the corridor. However, if we think this is Malaga and South of Spain wr considered these drawbacks as normal.

We only slept 2 nights in this hotel and it was alright, but for a longer stay we would start to get bothered by the small room, by the damaged shower head and poor facilities in general. The staff is friendly and helpful, but they don't speak much English. The best thing about this hotel is that it's situated in the city center and it's quite close to the main sites.

We were in our room at the Hotel del Pintor for a very short time since we arrived in the evening and left very early for a morning flight. We managed to find the hotel although we passed it by at first since it's located down a small street. We walked to the train station which took about 25-30 minutes for luggage which wasn't the most convenient but saved us some money compared to hotels closer to the airport. If you were staying in Malaga it's very central to all the main tourist sights. The front desk agent was very helpful at check-in and was more than happy to recommend a restaurant nearby which ended up being one of our favorites during our time in Spain (Pimpi). The hotel has a somewhat surreal art theme in black, red and white so it might not be for everyone. It reminded of a hostel more than anywhere else we stayed but we still had our own room and bathroom. We didn't have any problems with the wifi and had a quiet interior room. The room itself was simple and pretty small. It did have a slightly musty smell I think because the ventilation wasn't great but this wasn't a problem for us. All in all it was a fine place to stay on a budget and quick trip.

Rooms were very clean and spacious. The hotel also had tv and wifi (english channels). Lots of light and space, and everything has been redone. Looks a little sketchy from the outside, but it is a great value and definitely worth it! Location is in between the train station and the beach, and is walking distance to everything! Would recommend staying here.

This place is awful! The rooms smelled like mold/mildew and something else bad. The street noise was very loud. The shower was broken. The sheets were stained. It was all very creepy. The only good thing was the great organic restaurant nearby.

Dear guest,

First, if our hotel did not like, I want to apologize.

Our showers have not had any trouble in the last few weeks, because other guest has not told us the breakdown. Also do not understand why has not informed reception who did not like their assigned room. Our receotion might have changed your assigned room .
In short, we feel not meet your expectations.

Best regards,
Sergio B.
