Ester was a superb hostess. Easy 15-20 min. Walk to most sites. Eateries and markets closeby. Didn't eat optional breakfasts there , but they looked good. Neighborhood is quiet with some lovely mansions. Tip: Take correct bus in right direction to hostal (1.3 Euros). Pretty art and lamps in lobby. 1-3 flights of stairs to rooms. Plenty of hot water after 1 to 2 mins.

Very cute hotel located just outside of the main city. Room was clean and comfortable. AC would have been nice. Staff was friendly and offered good recommendations for sites/restaurants in the city. Was a little long walk to some sites in the city. Overall, great stay. Would stay again.

The hotel was great, very clean, beautiful double apartment which was appreciated as there were three of us travelling. We were only passing through Malaga but we wished we had more time, the city looked beautiful and it would have been a good place to spend some time at the beach. The location was quiet but close to downtown and it was easy to get to the airport from there.

This hotel is in a quiet, pretty neighbourhood but only a short distance from the city centre and all of the local restaurants and tourist attractions, however just be aware that it is a good thirty minute walk from the bus/train station, although there are lots of buses to this area. I wouldn't really consider this to be a hotel but rather a guesthouse. The rooms are nicely decorated and the public areas are very relaxing and it has general laid back vibe. My only complaint would be that the girl on reception was not particularly welcoming and on two occasions I had to stand around waiting while she carried on a telephone conversation. Other than that though it was a really nice place to stay and I would highly recommend it for those on a budget.

We know Malaga a lot better since we spent over 2 hours trying to locate the Hotel Villa Alicia in the dark! lt was extremely difficult to find it without a Malaga street map; but even once we'd got to the right street, this is so long with very similar-looking properties all along both sides, it was still really hard to find the right Villa (about midway.) We were extremely lucky to get a parking spot almost opposite but if that hadn't been available it could easily have been another half-an-hour before we got settled in! lt was a very attractively-decorated hotel & despite the late hour of our eventual arrival, we found a really nice little bar close by with some equally nice food available; our room was pleasant with an extremely comfortable bed - don't think l've ever fallen asleep quite so quickly! Breakfast was very nice & l was lucky enough to get their last egg.. The couple in charge were very friendly. My only advice would be not to attempt to find the hotel without a street map - especially in the dark!

Ensimmäinen käynti Espanjassa. Manjana meininkiä ei havaittavissa. Mukana liikuntavaivainen 83 vuotias äiti, jolla oli vaikeuksia portaiden kapuamisessa, ja niitä tässä pensionaatissa riitti. Mutta kun saavuimme riittävän aikaisin, saimme toiselle asiakkaalle varatun alakerran huoneen, eikä portaista tarvinnut kavuta kuin puolet. Hyvin viihtyisä pieni hotelli rauhallisen sivukadun varrella, mutta silti kävelymatkan päässä Malagan keskustasta. Tulipa tuossa käveltyä jopa uimarannalle, ja ostoskeskuksiinkin. Ja lähellä olevasta nähtävyydestä saatiin lähtökohta sekä kartan mukaisiin kävelyihin, että turistibussin kierroille.

Vi havde en dejlig uge på Villa Alicia, det er et super hyggeligt sted. Vi havde valgt værelse med altan, og det var perfekt. De var søde på hotellet og hjælpsomme. Vi havde det dog lidt koldt, man skal ikke tro at man kan få varme i julen i Malaga. Værelset er ikke specielt varmt. Men der er masser af varmt vand og varme tæpper, så det gik.

Villa Alicia är ett trevligt guest-house beläget i ett trevligt område på gångavstånd från centrala Malaga och stranden (20 min). Inga problem att hitta hotellet och bussarna stannar i närheten. I området finns det en del mysiga restauranger. Villa Alicia är intimt, i praktiken en större villa med tre våningar och en reception som är bemannad med trevlig personal som är både serviceminded och talar bra engelska. Det går att beställa frukost som intas på terassen. Ett fint och mysigt guest-house helt enkelt. Men... Vårt rum saknade aircondition, vilket gjorde vår vistelse till lite av en pers så här i varma Augusti. Den fläkt som fanns på rummet hjälpte föga. Det var helt enkelt för varmt på rummet.

Ambiance d'une belle maison ancienne typique. Chambre très petite sans rangements, valise parterre, mais propre. Personnel jeune et accueillant mais débordé pour le petit déjeuner. La maison est bien placée pour visiter la ville. La grosse difficulté consiste à trouver une place de stationnement à l'arrivée, toutes les rues avoisinantes étant saturées de véhicules.

The hotel is located very central, and it can be hard to find a parking spot nearby. You really don't need to bring a car though, as most of the town is within walking distance. Rooms are clean and cosy, and the superior rooms are really nice. The staff is friendly and give great service, though they can be hard to get a hold of.

En positif, c'est une vieille maison qui est visuellement charmante et l'accueil était sympa. Mais la qualité et le confort n'est pas du tout à la hauteur du tarif pratiqué. Je n'ai pas vraiment aimé la chambre en rez de chaussée. La fenêtre était recouverte de verdure: effet original mais ça sentait horriblement fort les fleurs fanées, même après avoir refermé la fenêtre. Et surtout, rien n'étant fait pour insonoriser, nous entendions tous les bruits de la maison : les discussions à la réception, la porte d'entrée (violemment claquée en pleine nuit, pas cool), la rue. Je ne recommande pas si vous cherchez avant tout à bien dormir.

We slept 2 nights here, really good location - 5 minutes walk from the center of town, beautiful and quiet area with amazing houses. The staff was pretty much absent from the hotel, when we came there we had to wait for 15 minutes until the cleaning staff came to open the gate. She didn't speak any English so it was difficult to understand what's happening. But apart from that it's a good place and definitely worth the money!

"Needs To Improve Communication With Guests"
05/11/15 Amani10 Peterborough
Villa Alicia is situated in an area that is convenient for the centre of Malaga and for the longer and more strenuous walk up to the Castillo de Gibralfaro. It is an older building which has a variety of rooms. We chose one of the en-suite rooms with a terrace. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean as was the terrace. We thought that Villa Alicia was a good place to stay except at times, intentionally or not, there was a lack of communication and the customer service provided by one member of staff left a lot to be desired. Without going into details, we experienced a few issues with the room and these were not handled well by the member of staff concerned. In fact, we received no apology and the member of staff actually seemed annoyed with us for raising the issues. In fairness, the other members of staff seemed friendly and the guest house has many good qualities but they do need to improve their communication and at least one member of their team needs to improve their customer service skills.

"Marvellous Malaga - Villa Alicia Bliss!"
05/01/15 johnno1965 Exeter, United Kingdom
I could echo word for word the comments of Jane A who sums up the character of this guest house villa so very well. 'Quirky' is a word that defines this wonderful place. Colourfully and imaginatively eclectic, it is unique in a very special way. Basic but charmingly different and decorated in a an artistically abstract way- this elderly villa which lies in a quiet part of town with easy access to the centre is 'delightful'. Great value for money. I stayed in one of the smaller private rooms at a very good price for three nights. I shared bathroom facilities with one other room which posed no problems what so ever. There are other rooms that have private facilities and lovely terraces for just a little more money. Breakfast can be purchased on a daily basis at a very reasonable price from continental at 3.5 euros with great fresh coffee or tea and toasted bread with jams, honey, and cream cheese- with the addition of muesli, eggs, yoghurt or fresh fruit for a euro or two more depending on your choice. Breakfast can be taken outside on the front terrace if you wish which is a lovely way to meet other guests in the morning. Special thanks to the hard working Esther who made my short stay so very welcoming and informed me about all that Malaga has to offer. Although busy with reception duties and generally running the place! She always found the time to answer my questions and juggle two or three other tasks at the same time! Perfect English spoken. Thank you Esther for adding so much to my stay at the Alicia and Malaga. You are a star! Malaga is really worth visiting for its own beauty and merits as many people are now realising. In the past it may have been overlooked by tourists as an airport town which was just a gateway to the popular beach resorts of the Costa Del Sol or a one day stop for the cruise liners. Malaga has so much more to offer- beauty, history, culture and you can combine the city treasures - Cathedral, Alcazaba, Gibralfaro ( a must for the amazing views of the city), Museums (including the Picasso Museum),Town Hall with formal gardens, Tropical Gardens, Port and New Marina area, Bull Ring, Roman Remains with a day or two on the city beaches. These have a feel of the Riviera at one point and progress along the coast to an older part full of beach front bbq seafood restaurants. The promenade runs all the way along- on the flat- beside the road. You can go as far as you like! The Alicia compliments the city- rich in history and culture with a twist and is a great base to explore all that Malaga has to offer. Excellence based on basic value for money, uniqueness, service, special charm with a certain 'je ne sais quoi?' - whatever that is in Spanish?!! Amazing mix of guests too- I loved it!

"Friendly, quirky, good value"
03/08/15 Jane A Ansley, United Kingdom
Villa Alicia combines the economy and facilities of a student hostel - not too expensive, communal area, shared kitchen - with the amenities of a hotel in a lovely old villa in a suburb of Malaga. The rooms have tiled floors and high ceilings and basic furnishings but are spotlessly clean. The reception area has a large mural of characters from 'Alice in Wonderland' and some extraordinary original Malaga-style surrealist paintings by a friend of the owners. The city centre is a 15 minute walk away. In the opposite direction, a five minute walk takes you to pine woods outside the city. The Gibralfaro and Alcazaba, both good value and well worth a visit, are also within walking distance. It is a small privately-run venture and so does not have a large staff. But they were always there when we needed them. We have stayed there three times and we love it. We recommend the coffee in the morning too!

"OK for a cheaper option"
10/01/14 cheapncheerful Toronto, Canada
We had a room with shared bath on the second floor. This is as another reviewer mentioned a pretty casually run spot, meaning reception is one person who might or might not be around (but is helpful when there). Shared facilities on our floor were a WC with sink and another 3-piece bath with two shower stalls -- both smallish but with windows. Problem was LOTS of noise from other guests, who spanned a bit of a demographic range from middle-aged (us) to young and ready to party (playing music in room after 1 a.m.). Also the double is really two twins, which is less than cozy, if common in Spanish hotels.

"Restful Stay in Malaga but..."

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Alicia. We had Room 11 which has a small terrace which was worth the extra money - we paid 70 Euros. The scent of jasmine on the terrace was delightful. Breakfast was good for 5 Euros. However the place is run very casually. When we arrived our room had not been cleaned, since it was evening we were given another room and had to move the next day. They moved our used towels with us and never did replace the towels during 3 more days. Not even a bar of soap supplied in either room. For 70 Euros in Spain you usually have at least room tidying each day, with emptying of waste baskets, and replenishment of towels. Not here though, never offered, and the stairs and public areas were not swept either. Internet was variable, which we don't worry too much about, but when we went to leave it was not working so everyone checking out had to pay in cash, a bit of a surprise, fortunately we had visited an ATM but were not planning to spend it all checking out of the hotel. The receptionist said this commonly happens(!?) I think for 70 Euros they could step up their housekeeping standards. That said, it was a pleasant quiet neighbourhood which was welcome.

"Charming and out of the ordinary"

We wanted somewhere to stay for a short stay in Malaga that was convenient for the city but retained some Spanish character. We were not disappointed with Villa Alicia, the decoration was quirky and full of flair, the rooms comfortable and the location perfect for us, being just out of the main part of the city but close enough for a leisurely stroll to the centre. The staff were pleasant and helpful and breakfast on the jasmine scented terrace was the perfect start to the day. We would have no hesitation in staying here again.

"Guest house"

10 minutes walk from the city centre, but in a quiet residential area of Victorian villas. If you realise that the high trip advisor scores relate to it being a modesty priced gues house (and not a hotel) you will not be disappointed.

"Haven in the city.."

Arrived at the Villa late at night..but thanks to the excellent and clear instructions from Eva we managed to gain access to the property and our room with no problem. The property is in a quiet street but only 10/15 minutes walk from the city centre.The villa was thoughtfully and sympathetically decorated..clean and our room comfortable..plenty of hot water in the spotless communal shower a pleasant bonus.Great terrace out front for breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening..would stay again without hesitation.

"A little gem in Malaga"
08/11/14 Lins_Alex Preston, United Kingdom
My friend and I have just returned from a 5 day stay at this delightful B& B. Esther was so helpful and gave us lots of places of interest to visit including fabulous beaches only a short walk away. We didn't take beach towels so another member of staff kindly let us borrow two.The room was really nice and the breakfast exceptionally reasonable. All in all the service and the customer care I doubt would be matched at a 5 star hotel because you really thought they cared about their guests. I would highly recommend this accommodation if you are looking for something a little quirky and don't mind a 10 minute walk to the centre. There is no lift in case you have major mobility issues.

"Another great stay in Málaga"
07/28/14 Laurence F Marbella, Andalucia, Spain
We really like staying in this comfy little hostal just 10 minutes walk from all the best bars and restaurants in the city of Málaga. Esthér is a great host who speaks excellent English. Check out Muelle Uno whilst you visit.
