the hotel is well situated in the Casas de Campos, on 5 minutes walk of the city centre. We had a double room on the 4th floor , on the back off the hotel . Very quiet. Rooms are very clean en nicely decorated. Nearby good restos and nice little bars . Good breakfast en very friendly staff.

There are many plus-sides to the Mariposa. The rooms are huge and clean. I loved the shower - high water pressure, nice bath tub. They give you a complimentary bottle of water each day as well as the typical tea / coffee stuff. The location is good / great. It's a 10-15 minute walk to Maria Zambrano, the main train...

I have stayed in this area of Malaga several times in the past, and this was probably the nicest room I have had at these prices. The hotel appeared to have been recently remodeled. The overall appearance was clean with a modern flair. The one issue I had is that breakfast was not included with the room. I have stayed...

The hotel had very comfortable beds and had some nice boutique type decorations to it. The parking is tight if you have a larger car. The location is close to some restaurants and shopping area.

I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. It's very new with comfy bed and spacious bathrooms. It was a big improvement from another hotel we were at in Malaga. The service is professional and quick. The location is quite good. It's very close to the beautiful fun restaurant and shopping area and totally easy walking distance to the marina.

parking is seriously a joke. anything larger than a fiat 500 is extremely difficult to park. if you are looking to stay somewhere with convenient parking, this is not he place. ramp is a 45 degree angle, no radius for turning at bottom spaces are suitable for an extremely small car only.

We had one night in Malaga before an early flight, after a weeklong family vacation further east.
