While in a fairly unfashionable, nondescript street (in an otherwise fashionable and exuberant city), you are only a five-minute walk to the beach, the same to the old town and even less to the CAC Museum of Modern Art.
While the 50-odd bedrooms are far from cavernous, they are comfortable enough and have a distinct style. All have natural hard-wearing floors, 1960s-style furniture and huge chrome silver lamps. They are painted in a range of pastel colours and have original paintings or photos of the city. The huge picture windows give nice glimpses of 19th-century buildings across the road. I particularly like the fact that each bedroom has a selection of the latest magazines. Executive rooms are slightly bigger with space for an extra bed and there are three suites, which are nothing out of the ordinary.
You walk into a big lobby full of classic 1960s-style furniture. While minimalist in style, the white and black leather sofas and chairs give a sense of attitude to the place.
Eating and drinking
There is a large breakfast/dining area on the ground floor, but no restaurant.
Slow and not overwhelmingly friendly when I visited.
Who stays there
Trendy couples, businessmen and anyone looking for something new in Malaga.
It is very often full, so book early.
