Superb 9.0 From 80 reviews

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.

Two night stay
Walked in, had a nice homely feel, but what ruined stay was that i was on 5th floor, lift went up to the fourth, so had to help pregnant wife, toddler and suitcase up the remaining floor
