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.

Loved the old- style breakfast with no buffet and fresh orange juice. Friendly staff, lovely beds. Walking distance to city-center. Close to the beach and lovely sea-view from terrace. Would recommend if you look for small, cosy personal hotel with no flashy details

Quant little hotel near the beach about fifteen minutes walk along front to centre. If you want precooked scrambled eggs for breakfast this is not for you. You get lovely fruit and roles and cake , mother in laws recipe. No bar but super market close by. Roof terrace with a view of the beach and kite surfers with glass...

Only had an overnight and half day in Malaga, but this hotel was quite nice and perfectly located to make the most of it. Very near restaurants and the beach. Extra friendly service that exceeds expectations.
