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...

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.

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...

The hotel is a perfect choice for you if you like to get good, friendly service, inmaculate but tiny room & common terasse with sea view for sunbath. It is located close to the playa and walking distance from the old town. Local bus connection (nr. 11) is also available towards city center and back. In the neighborhood there are...

We spent 5 nights here and loved it! It is a small family run place, the staff are super friendly and helpful (they gave us advice on finding a supermarket, how to get to the beach, and which buses to take to get around). The beach is a 5-10 min walk and bus no 3 (to get to Maria Zambrano...

Moreover the location was perfect, in fact it s located just 2 minutes walking from the Malagueta beach and 15 minutes from the city...

Picked this hotel after reading the reviews on this site & have to say it exceeded expectation. This is a small family hotel with friendly staff. The rooms are clean & the beds comfortable. Our room was on the 2nd floor looking to the front of the hotel. Yes, there is traffic noise but you are in the city &...
