Good 6,0
A nice budget hotel in Malaga
A two star hotel located in a non-commercial area of Malaga. Great breakfast and comfortable walking distance to many area attractions. Good restaurants all within a 10 minute walk. The bus stops within 20 meters of the hotel to take you all over the city. Our biggest issue was the amount of traffic/road noise. Most of the staff was very friendly. The 4th floor terrace is a nice feature for more views of the Mediterranean and the city.

A great place for a Malaga stay!
The place is lovely and nicely located. The service offered by the staff is amazing. The breakfast was really filling and fresh. The hotel also lend us some beach towels in order for us to spend the day at the beach. Loved the addition of the rooftop terrace. Would go back anytime!

Welcome to the Hotel California
Quirky place, staff very personable and extremely helpful, hotel and room spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast substantial. While we had no balcony we had access to the roof terrace which went some way to make up for this. Location a 15 minute walk from centre, but beach and its facilities and restaurants just 100 yards away. Our room, 402, was on the small side, but being to side of building was quiet. Great good sized shower room and small fridge added to the generally good vibes. Also effective and very quiet air conditioning unit.

Great stay
Really enjoyed the stay, helpful, friendly staff, great, decent sized room, air con works, well decorated with a hint of the 50s in the communal areas. Breakfast wasn’t a buffet but was good.
