With the £ being low against the euro, we had to choose a more affordable option for our annual stay in Malaga city. As we always split our time between beach and city centre, this was a practical solution - our first time staying near the beach rather than in the centre. The accommodation is also near the new Port...

An elegant renovation has taken place downstairs at my long time favourite Malaga hotel. The breakfast area has grown in size with new seating in 50`s period style and the original metalwork doors have been kept intact. In the morning every client is served according their personal tastes with fresh orange juice, milk coffee, croissants, bread with cheese and ham,...

A very friendlly, clean hotel. Staff are happy to help, position is great for the beach and strolling into the old city centre. Breakfast is very good and will cover your lunch ( they will wrap up any excess for you ) if your not too hungry .

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.

What a lovely family run traditional hotel this is. We would like to thank them for their lovely welcome. The staff are warm and friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable. We had a balcony with a partial sea view. The décor of the hotel is traditional and makes a refreshing change from the standard modern multi chain hotel...

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...
