Very good 8.0
Nice place - local restaurants and not too far to walk into the centre

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.

A pleasant stay
Friendly staff, clean and comfortable. 5 mins to beach and the old town very walkable.

Exceptional 10.0
First trip to Malaga with a view to seeing the galleries and museums. Wanted to avoid the hustle and bustle and noise in the centre of town and still be within a short walking distance of these attractions. The Hotel California turned out to be the perfect choice. Spacious rooms and genuinely friendly. It appears to be family-run and seems to have a tradition of genuine hospitality that contrasts with the indifference that sadly lurks behind the professional friendliness that is sometimes the hallmark of five-star hotel chains.

Relaxing stay
Our recent 6 day stay was once again relaxing and excellent. Our room was cleaned daily and fresh towels provided. The breakfast is lovely and served to you indoors or out. The hotel staff are very welcoming but not intrusive. The roof top terrace is a great place to have a drink and a snack if you like. The hotel has no Bar but you are welcome to bring your own eats and drinks and enjoy at your leisure. Overall I would highly recommend a trip. The bus to Centre is only e.1.30 and there are local restraunts near by to eat in which are all very good.

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.
