Not at all relaxing.Renovations being carried out all day.Very rude proprietor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A wonderful welcome and a great stay at El Riad Andaluz. We had a fantastic room, beautifully furnished and the hotel is in a great location close to the tourist attractions. The owners took the time to tell us all the must do attractions, bars and restaurants that they recommended in Malaga, and we felt very welcomed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great experience. Location, staff, price, comfort, everything was top! We were travelling with a small child, and it was the easiest thing. Highly recommended! We´ll stay here again anytime.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lovely hotel with a few disadvantages"
11/23/13 mbookworm York, United Kingdom
There is a lot to like about El Riad Andaluz - the charming decor, the friendly owner, and the adorable resident dog are three of them. The hotel has a central courtyard with free tea and coffee, really nice in good weather and lovely to spend an hour. Each room is individually decorated and named. The owner we met was also extremely friendly and gave us a map and suggestions for what to do and see in Malaga while we were there. She also very kindly moved us to a double room when she saw that we were a married couple who wasn't that keen on twin beds! It's also well located for Malaga's best attractions as it's in the historic centre of the city. Unfortunately, neither of the rooms we saw had an external window, which meant they were very dark even in the middle of the day. The room also didn't have a proper light, so it stayed dark most of the time. In addition, the bathroom isn't actually a separate room; there is a transparent curtain blocking it off. You need to be very comfortable with the person you're staying with or things could get embarrassing quickly! Overall we had a lovely stay, but it's worth bearing in mind those two disadvantages when choosing a hotel.
"centrical place to stay downtown"
10/11/13 lukas s Nerja, Spain
This is a lovely pension in the old part of the fascinating town of Malaga. The hosts are both french and very welcoming and the building from the XXVIII is fascinating. We were there in Septembre and both Malaga and the pension was warm as in summer .The room itself was well decorated. Pension has a private parking,free cofee and internet and reasonable (for Spain ) breakfast. overall very good value.We'll be back in winter.
"Lovely hotel with a traditional feel to it"
08/22/13 Robyn L Ireland
Really fell in love with this hotel. It is small and quaint located in the middle of Malaga city. Decor has a real spanish feel to it as it is lined with evil eye wall hangings etc... Lovely area downstairs with hammock and comfortable chairs to chill. Free tea and coffee available and free wifi which can be assessed downstairs. Our room was quite small but i loved it. One double and one single bed for my mother and I to share. The toilet is sectioned off by a curtain and a short wall - you would need to be reasonably comfortable with the person you are travelling with, due to the facilities haha. Hotel is close to everything in the city. My mother and I never once got a taxi we explored by foot. Hotel beside a lovely square with beautiful restaurants for breakfast, dinner and delicious cocktails.
"Nice small hotel"
07/02/13 Julian S Netphen, Germany
We stayed at the "El Riad Andaluz" for two nights. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The room was in Arabian style which was very nice and cosy. Unfortunately we had a room with no real window. The bathroom was only separated by a curtain. Free coffee and tea was provided. The hotel is very close to Place the la Merced, which is perfect for visiting the city. All in all I can warmly recommend staying at this hotel.
"Great choice accommodation for stay in old town Malaga"
05/06/13 SH83 UK
We stayed in the purple room with the balcony overlooking the courtyard so it was very peaceful (except for some renovation work in the property next door during the daytime) and as its located just to the north of the old town's sights you can get about really easily and explore the streets of Malaga. Its away from the coach tour crowds but close enough to walk everywhere including the train station and to find somewhere close by for breakfast. Friendly and knowledgeable owners (plus pets!), the rooms are small but well designed and nicely decorated - the balcony room is great. The building is traditional so its cool at night without air conditioning.

Arrived late in the evening..but that didn't stop Florence phoning around numerous restaurants to find something open for us so we wouldn't go to bed on an empty stomach...we had the "blue room" which was plenty big enough, comfortable and tastefully decorated throughout in a Moroccan style. The little side street serving the hotel is traffic free so it might be a little tricky to find if you're not familiar with the area or have a load of luggage to carry..the Plaza Merced is close by and a great place to have a coffee in the morning and people watch. The property next door is undergoing a complete renovation so if you're a light sleeper you might hear some building work in the morning but not enough to detract from a great hotel run by helpful and knowledgeable staff.
"Such A Welcome..."
04/14/13 phvickery Belfast, United Kingdom
I love a business, when it can relax a bit and treat you like one of their own. Florent and Florence did just that. Situated in a lovely side street, our room was more of a suite. Two balconies, two bathrooms, two beds (handy after a row), two pets; Petite Boufou (that's not right, I know but it's the closest you're gonna get) a lovely grey bushy tail cat and his chum, Maurice the pug. I'd like to say they were as welcoming as our hoteliers, however they had other plans. Our room was simple and airy, with a moroccan feel. Important: Not all the rooms have a window. There is a lovely inside leafy terrace and sky light. Free tea, instant coffee and water is available, but it's a short walk into town for espresso cafes and more. On a more useful note, we were given local maps with great places to eat, safe parking is available two minutes away (small charge) their own garage - pre book this. The highlight for me was the welcome. We really hit it off with Florent and Florence. Lovely people. They deserve to do well...
"Cheap, simple but friendly"
03/26/13 Anders G Hjo, Sweden
If you can accept a very small but cosy room and do not require a door to the shower/toilet this is a real find! Very friendly staff and owner that happily gives you a ideas on what to see and where to eat. We can't recommend to accept the prepaid breakfast in a café nearby. Go and find one yourselves! This low budget hotel is situated near the Old Town in Malaga
"Good Location, Small Room"
01/03/13 corduroy79 Atlanta, Georgia
We stayed here one night after a marathon travel day from the US. The price was a bit high given that we got a very small room and a bathroom that did not have a door separating it from the room. Had I known this I might have booked elsewhere. The good news however, is that the room was well decorated and the location couldn't be better. Note that it is rather hard to find when arriving by car, even when using a GPS, since it's in a small alley. Staff was very helpful, and the parking space they provided was a couple small blocks away. Overall a lot of good things (hence the four stars), but given the size of the rooms, I probably wouldn't stay here again.
"Quiet and characterful hotel in excellent central old city location"
11/30/12 EJB1976 Bristol, United Kingdom
My partner and I chose to stay here during a weekend visit to Malaga. The hotel is charming and oozes Moroccan character. It is run by an extremely friendly and affable French couple and their family. They were incredibly welcoming and relaxed, and gave some excellent tips on places to visit in the city during our stay. Our room was comfortable and had lots of character with splashes of colour and individual identity. The hotel is situated down a quiet pedestrian street but is very well located a short walk from the centre of the old city and very close to the Plaza. We had tremendous vegetarian tapas when dining out there. The hotel was good value for money and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it if you want something a little off beat and different. All in all one of our best hotel experiences.
