We choose this hotel for two nights due to the location and cost. Very nicely decorated lobby area, has super outside terrace with sea view to bring your wine. Very nice breakfast. Forgot to reserve parking at a reduced rate so found local garage to be quite costly. Rooms were large and comfy but we had a room on 5th...

Let's start with the positive things. The breakfast in the hotel was very nice with fresh orange juice. Also, the staff was very friendly. Location is good with lots of parking opportunities for our car around and beaches close bye. The room itself was just a bad. It was on the top floor, but elevator went only one floor below....

We were just in Malaga for a business trip and added some fun, too. We stayed at Hotel California and we really loved it. The location of the hotel is excellent, a 20 min walk from the vibrant and magnificent Malaga center, a 5 min walk from the beach and close to the exits to the main roads to other...

Great small family run hotel with perhaps 15 rooms. Clean and well cared for with a staff that will bend over backwards to meet any request that we made. We stayed for five nights and noise never disturbed our sleep. The breakfast was generous, flavourful and with warm croissant that you would expect in Paris, not Spain. It is only...

My partner and I stayed here on 29th Jan. We chose this hotel because of its location to the city and accessibility to places we wanted to visit. On arrival the owners were very helpful with check in. The parking was a struggle until we realised there was a car park across the road which the owners kindly parked our...

Our room was nice and clean and air conditioned as despite being in September it was still very hot. The hotel is very close to the beach you just walk down the road then through an alley cross over the road and you are there. The hotel has bars and restaurants close by. They have a solarium upstairs to sit...
