Expensive hotel with poor standard. No facilities, no breakfast. The room we got had a window but it was facing a really small inner yard. Not a recommendable hotel. Even though there is a free wifi it is working poorly.

We only stayed overnight for the Jazz Festival but the hotel was the perfect choice. Like everyone else has said, the location is THE BEST, but everything else was also excellent. It is clean, comfortable and friendly. And inexpensive too - that's good enough for us. We didn't try the food and beverage department at the hotel - all the... More

Fairly ordinary hotel except for the location. Situated a short walk from Malaga Cathedral and an even shorter one from the Roman theatre and entrance to the Alcazar. Although. the hotel is in the Old Town it is on a pedestrianised road and does not suffer from street noise. The room I had was quite small but comfortable with a... More

Good , clean central hotel close to the Cathedral. Helpful staff, car parking very close by. Rooms small but with everything you need including a fridge but no kettle for tea making. Bathroom well appointed with good shower.

The location is great, the rooms are basic but oke. It could be a bit cleaner, the headboards of the beds contained quite the amount of dust. The beds are comfortable and so is the shower, also for taller people.

Located in the old part of town. Easy walking distances to historical and religious sites, museums, dining, shopping, and the water front. If you drive make sure you have a tiny car due to the parking garage and narrow streets. A 1960 style atmosphere in the rooms, but great WiFi.

Very well located small hotel in the centre of Malaga's old quarter...BUT very disappointed with cleanliness of room on arrival at 2200 hrs which necessitated a change of room. Also, very poor attitude of staff when presented at check-out with two accounts for separately booked nights in the same room with Euros 25 price difference! Not amused especially in view... More

I stayed at the hotel for one night, went to Granada for a week, and then back to Malaga for two nights. The hotel is basic but very comfortable and clean. The location is fantastic, just around the corner from the Roman theatre and Alcazaba, close to the Cathedral - in fact, as the city is not huge, it is... More

Only stayed here for one night but consider it really good value for money. On 4th floor, twin beds and although furnishings are a little dated it is all nice and clean. Fridge in room, bathroom spotless, air-con quiet but taking a short while to be effective. Lift to room and lounge available serving coffee and soft drinks. Lots of... More
