In Benalmadena's Arroyo de la Miel district; it's in the retail and commercial heart of this area. It's a two-minute walk to the train station and a ten-minute stroll down the hill to the beach.
Cheap, cheerful and always very clean. The beds could be bigger and more comfy, in my opinion, and the mismatched, patterned curtains and bedspreads could do with updating. The rooms at the front of the hotel overlook a pleasantly-busy pedestrianised shopping street, and the rooms at the back over backstreet and an apartment building. There are rooms to share available too.
Old-school Spanish with dark terracotta flooring and ornate wall tiles. I like the shady back terrace for doing a spot of work.
Eating and drinking
There’s a small but well-stocked and welcoming bar serving light snacks. Nothing to write home about, but there’s a world of choice in the same street.
The staff are keen to help and appreciate your business. They made me feel one of the family. I liked that.
