Stayed at the Elcano for a long weekend in July 2016. Hotel is on a main road but we didn't have a problem with noise. Basic room, double with an en suite. Very clean. Staff very friendly. No English spoken, which personally I loved! There is a bus stop right outside the hotel which will take you straight into Malaga,...

Three minutes - if that - from the AIL Málaga school, and the rooms are gorgeous, the staff are really friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts in the conservatory were a highlight ... not because there's a huge choice but because the room is so beautiful, and I had what I wanted every morning: pan con tomate and cafe con...

Cheap hotel very near the Cervantes language school (5 minutes walk). I stayed there 5 nights and the staff were all lovely, friendly and helpful. The room was basic but spotlessly clean with en suite. The bed was comfortable and there was a TV with only a couple of Spanish language channels. I didn't have breakfast as there are so...

We spend there only 3 nights (before and after our cruise), its clean and nice small hotel about 300m from beach. Nothing special to talk about it, but if you are looking for room and fair price, this is right spot.

Lovely little hotel so close to the beach, restaurants and bus stop all you need for a short trip. The hotel was clean tidy and staff were welcoming. The only thing that could disturb some is the ability to hear tv from other rooms across the corridor but nothing too off putting its just such a small hotel its to...

I stayed here with my partner for a long weekend. I was disappointed that when we arrived that we were given a room with two twin beds although we had reserved a queen bed. The woman at the reception made no effort to correct the error. The room where we stayed was very clean. The decor was normal, nothing special....

I had a awesome stay at this Hostal or better Hotel, because it is a very modern building and so are the rooms too. You got a buitiful bath in every room, two single bed's (that's a little pity), but it's very clean! The staff is also very nice and kindly, even they don't speak a lot english, it is...

Hotel El Cano provided us with a broken cot for our 21 months old toddler. They admitted it was broken but they won't replace it for a new one. If we wouldn't have caught our son on time , he would have fallen on his head after leaning against the side of the cot. On the leaving day, they treated...

“Towels provided but no tea or coffee making facilities. Aircon in the room. We had a room at the side of the hotel (7) so maybe quieter.”
