We spent one night in this beautiful hotel before our two week trip to the South of Spain in November 2015. The hotel is really quite nice with lots of interesting art work and rooms and areas to explore. The staff is excellent and were very helpful with information regarding our trip and the public transport system. The continental breakfast...

Nice little hotel. Friendly staff. Great location and really clean. Down side was you could hear everything that happened in the next room. Baby crying in the middle of the night is not a nice way to be woken when you are on your holiday.

Very cosy small hotel close to the beach (1 minute walk) and 10-15 walking distance from city centre. Friendly staff, clean room, a very nice terrasse with sea view on 4th floor - you can hardly get more for this price! I would definetly recommend it.

Awesome location to visit Malaga. 3 minute walk to beach, 10 minute walk to old city. Comfortable room, nice rooftop terrace with view of the sea. City bus stop in front of hotel. The only disappointing thing was the quality of the service. The woman at the desk seemed annoyed whenever we asked for something. I don't think I saw...

Wonderful little hotel, in a beautiful house...we tend to gravitate toward smaller hotels, hence our choice of Hotel California, it is a little ways away from the city center, but everything is rather convenient in Malaga. Free wi-fi, free breakfast (very good by the way), and great service. It is an old home with a lot of character, and it...

I have just recently stayed at Hotel California on my own and what a delightful place! The staff are so friendly and it didn't matter that I couldn't speak much Spanish as they could speak English! Hotel is very comfortable and very central for everything I wanted to do. I had a room overlooking the back and was very quiet...
