The staff couldn't do enough for us! From setting up airport transportation to letting me have coffee before breakfast while I waited for my son to wake, to making an early AM coffee/breakfast for us since we had to leave to airport - even asking if we would like take away breakfast. Clean room, nice view, nice location. Great value!

Great location 15 minute walk from the centre, 5 minutes from the beach. Immaculately clean, spacious and comfortable. Very helpful staff. Best continental breakfast I've ever had. Homely and traditional.

Splendid small hotel just out of the centre of Malaga and a couple of minutes from the shore. On multiple bus routes into town and out to the more local oriented beaches. Literally a few minutes in each direction. The hotel is spotless and well furnished with helpful staff throughout.

This was our second visit to California. This time we stayed two nights and again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is convenient to Malaga City center and several attractions in the area. It's also a short walk down to the beach are and several beach front restaurants.

My daughter and I spent an afternoon and night in Malaga before I flew back to the States. We wanted to be close to the beach even though it wasn't exactly beach weather so the location was perfect. It was easily reached by bus and a 3 minute walk to the beach. The staff were really nice and helpful. The...

We stayed at the hotel California for a week. Prior to going they helped with travel arrangements from the airport. Once we arrived nothing was too much trouble for them. I had asked if we could have a room with a balcony which they gave us. The breakfast was fresh and plentiful. The location was ideal for all of the...

Wonderful small & friendly hotel ten minute walk to the centre of Malaga. Fantastic service, friendly staff who gave us ideas of ways to get the most out of our time in Malaga. Unbeatable breakfast, we couldnt keep up with all the dishes being brought to our table, amazing surprise as we expected a continental breakfast!

The location is excellent, staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are comfortable with very nice bathrooms! All for a great price. The hotel itself is classic style but the bathrooms are nice and modern. Very pretty terrace and garden outside.

Had a lovely 2 night stay here. The hotel is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. The air con works well as does the wi fi. Tv gives a selection of English channels. Staff helpful and friendly. We had the superior room which had a balcony and I recommend. Didn't take breakfast so can't comment. Easy to get to beach...
