Very Good 8.0
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.

Poor 2.0
Don't Stay Here!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fraud!!! DON'T STAY HERE! Room reserved wasn't available and therefore didn't stay. They charged my card anyway! Horrible hotel! Wouldn't refund and I had to file a claim against them. Images deceptive. Rooms not as described. DON'T STAY HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Wonderful service!
The gentleman at the front desk went far above and beyond to help us. Even though we had not asked for parking in advance, he found a place for our car and parked it himself. On the day we left, during a torrential downpour, he led us in his car out of town as there was construction on the main road and he was afraid our GPS might not help us. The included breakfast was amazing.
