Pros: Central location Very clean Modern

Within walking distance of Malaga city and the beautiful old town and marina. With plenty of cafes and bars nearby and all very reasonable priced.

Cool, semi-boutiquish hotel right in the city.

Posted Aug 18, 2017
Pros: Nicely executed renovation of a tourist hotel Gra services super clean and comfortable bed and lines,
Cons: Better signage in the immediate area to the hotel parking garage.
It was hard to drive to find there place, what with Google Maps, Waze and volkwagen's in-cer NAV system giving contradicting and bad guidance down one-way streets etc. Nut I found it and good paling spot. I used my Expedia Poits to book the $200 room for $20 and whe i arrived late at night, the wonderful Night Clerk said i was an "Expedia VIP" and was upgraded to their best suite and included breakfast! Room was so ice. comfy bed (so important to me1) bathroom was modern and stylish with great toiletries! And ever staff ember was great! I recommend with then only recommendationn to pic onE grrs and follow only one! 0

Close to all shopping and restaurants

Posted Aug 4, 2017
Pros: Staff and location
Cons: Comfort of the beds
Location: Close to all shopping and cafes. Walking distance to the beaches, horse and buggy rides. We found the horse and buggy ride to be excellent..
Staff were exceptional. Good breakfast included in our reservation. Only complaint we found was the beds were too soft. We were a party of 4 with 2 rooms and we all experienced back aches. Other than that we would definitely recommend and return to this hotel. Location was excellent. We used our GPS to locate the hotel, but advisory to anyone going into Malaga the city is under major construction all over the city.

Amazing staff

Posted Jul 18, 2017
Myself and a friend stayed for 3 nights. The location of the hotel was really good as it's close to the beach, public transport, the port and the old town. The staff were amazing especially the gentleman who checked us in as he gave us a map and gave us directions pretty much everyday when we needed them.

Nice clean hotel,but the toilet was not ventilated

Posted Jul 17, 2017
Ok hotel. Clean, friendly staff, not had breakfast included. So can't judge that. Very good located. Quit and central. Only problem.... toilet wasn't ventilated and was quit smelly. Could be fixed easy. Great money/value for €80 a night for a double. Would go again.

Issues

Posted Jul 14, 2017
We attempted to eat at the restaurant in the hotel. The plate was so hit that ai burned my finger. But the food was ICae cold. The center of the meat was almost frozen. The humidity in the room was unbearable. I did not fall asleep until after 3 am. I was awoken at 8 by loud noises from other rooms and doors slamming. Our refrigerator was broken and I had medications that must be kept cold....I had to place them in a bucket of ice. Shameful because the staff was kind and helpful. But there were too many issues .

Nice hotel, modern and clean.

Posted Jul 11, 2017
Nice hotel, very modern and welcoming. Clean atmosphere always good. Staff great, welcoming, polite, understanding. Rooms were nice other than the air conditioning, room 307 was awful and the temperature was far hotter than possible to sleep in for a tourist. Decent location, not too far to centre and beach.

Lovely hotel close to everything, but quiet

Posted Jul 9, 2017
Had a great 4 night stay at this hotel. It's not far from all the major attractions (15min walk maximum). Very quiet at night so good sleep quality. All staff very friendly. Room was spotless and had everything I needed. Many thanks.
