I would definitely return to the Hotel California! This family-owned business knows how to create a comfortable, clean and quiet place to stay near the beach. Small grocery, restuarants, El Alcazaba and the beach are near by--within a short walk. The breakfast was excellent and served in a very personable fashion. The staff was quite willing to answer any and all questions I had about the area. I am only hoping that when I return to Malaga, I can stay at the Hotel California once again!
