Lovely Guesthouse
Really couldn’t fault the place. Lovely family run guesthouse close to the beach and bus line into Centro. Walked one day was around 20minutes. Comfy bed, clean bathroom. Would definitely stay again. Great terrace/balcony too.

This is a gem of a hotel! It's in a great location, only a five minute walk to the beach and 15 minutes to the historic centre. The staff were all really helpful and friendly and the room was clean, modern and comfortable. Breakfast was amazing too.

8/10 Very good

Great boutique hotel. Location is perfect for the beach, but also quite close to the city. Short walk to the A bus direct to the airport. Surrounded by decent restaurants and a nearby supermarket. Highlight is the sun terrace which gets the sun all day. Air conditioning in rooms is very efficient. Breakfast is served at the table - modest servings for €10. Only downside was the smallness of the room.... would be very tight for more than one person. Also, the WiFi signal is poor and dropped out constantly in the room, and on the roof terrace. This should be sorted by the management. Overall, a 4/5.

10/10 Exceptional

Excellent hotel. Breakfast was superb - served to the table. Never could finish it all. Staff very friendly and helpful. Quiet area of Malaga but it was on a main road. It was a 5 min walk to the beach where we hired beds for 6 euros each. The hotel's roof terrace was a lovely area to sunbathe too with about 10 beds available, some with shade. It was a good 25 min walk into town but we needed it to work off the fab food we ate. Rooms spotlessly clean and of a decent size. We also had a fridge, kettle and hairdryer. No English channels on the tv though. I would very much recommend this hotel as long as you don't mind walking into town or catching a bus.
