The villa is really nice with a lovely terrace. The location is great. 5 minutes from the main tourist attrition yet on a quiet one-way street in a residential area. It's an old villa so you do get the noises you'd expect, but that's just old doors. They also do a really nice breakfast and the owner(s) are really nice...

It has an excellent location if you want to be central but not in the middel of the tourist mob. The price is cheap so you cannot expect more than basic. Clean. We had a shared bath and toilet, which was ok since we only spent one night.

We visited in March of 2016 and our room was really, really cold. There was a heater in the room which we were not able to use since the regulator was missing. It was apparently turned on centrally by the house. The bathroom was outside our room in the hallway, which we expected so it was ok. It was not...

Villa Alicia is situated pretty near the town center. You can easily walk from there. The service in there was one of the best I have yet received. Also I would recommend the breakfeast which is relatively cheap but very delicious. Also the place is dog friendly which is a good thing from my opinion.

We stayed in Villa Alicia for 3 days and that was pretty nice. Rooms are small but tidy and were cleaned daily. The small terrace is nice, and all the blossoming trees smell unbelievable! There was breakfast in the hotel (3-4 EUR), but we didn't used to try it. It is 15-20 mins walk to a city center. The street...

We just left the Villa Alicia today, after a 2 night stay. It is in a great location. A 10 to 15 minute walk to the city center and a little longer to the beach but in a quiet street. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I'd highly recommend it!

Villa Alicia is situated in an area that is convenient for the centre of Malaga and for the longer and more strenuous walk up to the Castillo de Gibralfaro. It is an older building which has a variety of rooms. We chose one of the en-suite rooms with a terrace. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean as was the...

I could echo word for word the comments of Jane A who sums up the character of this guest house villa so very well. 'Quirky' is a word that defines this wonderful place. Colourfully and imaginatively eclectic, it is unique in a very special way. Basic but charmingly different and decorated in a an artistically abstract way- this elderly villa...

Villa Alicia combines the economy and facilities of a student hostel - not too expensive, communal area, shared kitchen - with the amenities of a hotel in a lovely old villa in a suburb of Malaga. The rooms have tiled floors and high ceilings and basic furnishings but are spotlessly clean. The reception area has a large mural of characters...

We had a room with shared bath on the second floor. This is as another reviewer mentioned a pretty casually run spot, meaning reception is one person who might or might not be around (but is helpful when there). Shared facilities on our floor were a WC with sink and another 3-piece bath with two shower stalls -- both smallish...

Villa Alicia Guest House is located in a quiet area of Malaga city, within walking distance from its historical centre.The building itself is a good example of what once were the typical houses of the high bourgeoisie of the city in the early 1900s.When converting the house to a hostel, we have tried to maintain its original charm and style respecting its old features as much as possible: great wooden windows, high ceilings, spectacular geometric tiled floors, etc. ... more   less
