    Breakfast and toiletries are quite basic, but reasonable for the room price. No complaint !

    Good value for money. Great location for beaches and restaurants. Regular bus service to the centre of Malaga from outside the hotel.

    maybe the bed didn't need the metal flower decoration effect on the frame of the bed ( hard to relax when your are doing su doku at night :D )

    The location is perfect, few mins stroll to the beaches of Pedregalejo. We booked for 3 nights and had a Superior Double room. Queen sized bed was perfect with a large shower. We didnt get a b/f included rate but the hotel offered a lovely breakfast each morning ( 6e ) which you could take in the conservatory at the front of the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would come back again :)

    Climate of this place is special, really helpful people. Nice place to visit, it is not very far from city center, if you travel by bus the bus station is under hotel and bus is every 10 minutes. Localization is nice, nearby from hotel is beach, good restaurants, supermarket, great bakery and everything what you need. I recommend this place.

    Cosy and clean room in a peaceful neighbourhood
    • Leisure trip

    • Superior Double Room
    • Stayed 7 nights
    • Submitted via mobile

    The street sounds may be annoying for those who prefer to sleep with windows open. "Continental breakfast" very poor. Not worth it's price. Toasts made of frozen bread and low quality products. Better don't ask for additional toast - you may cause the serving lady offended. Maybe it's OK for few nights stay. But as we stayed in Elcano for a week we started bringing our own food - fresh baguette, cheese and choriso (total price for 2 pax - less than their breakfast p/p). Causing the lady even more resentful ;)

    For those who look for a cosy and clean room in a peaceful neighbourhood. Original and climatic hotel and hotel rooms design. Bus stop just in front of the hotel, trip to the city center takes about 20min (bus no. 3, 11, 34 and night N1). Beach and nearest tapas bars within 5min walking distance. Nearest shop about 10min walk, gas station about 15min. Very helpful and kind, english speaking man at the reception desk in the evenings. Although the reception is not open 24h it appeared not necessary. Great coffee offered! (We usually don't drink coffee but had it every day in Elcano:)

    Excellent value for money. Nothing not to like

    Efficient check in, lovely hotel, rooms small but perfectly good for the price, very comfortable bed. Quite far from centre of Malaga to walk for some (though plenty of frequent cheap buses all night and we loved the walk anyway!), but in a great location near the beach, bars and restaurants. Nothing to dislike.
