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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Passing through, great spot"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were greeted with lots of information and assistance at the desk. The room is lovely and the location perfect. They were also able to arrange an early morning taxi, bus schedule, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hunt The Hotel!"
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! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Supertrivsamt hostal i trevligt område"
Som "arbetssemester" var Villa Alicia perfekt. Utmärkt läge med gångavstånd till lokala barer/cafeer. Rent och mysigt rum. Trevliga allmänna utrymmen med väl fungerande wi-fi både inne och ute.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"ADRESSE INCONTOURNABLE !!!"
l'odeur du jasmin dans la chambre, le petit déjeuner sur la terrasse... la proximité du centre ville pour toutes les visites, tout peut se faire à pieds!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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.

"Mysigt litet hotell"
Överlag var villa Alicia ett väldigt trevligt hotell med väldigt trevlig och hjälpsam personal! Dock låg det i utkanten av centrumet och en lång bit från stranden. Det som finns att anmärka om rummet var att det inte fanns egen toalett (som vi visste). Måste dock säga att det var väldigt prisvärt!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Maison d'hôtes de charme"
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.

"Cosy little place in Málaga"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Servicio y ubicación estupendos"
Limpio. Servicio estupendo, muy majos. Único inconveniente: la cama supletoria estaba medio rota.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Mycket trevligt litet hotell med utmärkt service. Det enda man kan vara lite undrande över är varför man har så dålig byggstandard i Spanien med kalla rum utan isolerande fönster och obefintlig frånluft i badrum.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nettes familiär geführtes kleines Guesthouse"
In zentrumsnaher Lage gelegenes recht günstiges kleines Guesthouse. Zu Fuss sind es nur ca. 10 min. zu den zentralen Highlights. Das Haus ist zwar schon recht alt, hat aber den Charme von vor ca. 100 Jahren behalten. Die Rezeption hat uns mit guten Tips schnell geholfen. Der Presi ist sehr günstig.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Schönes kleines Hotel mit geringen Parkplatzsorgen"
Das Hotel ist einfach, dafür aber sehr sauber und relativ nah zum Stadtzentrum gelegen.Die Bedienung bezw. das Service-Personal ist überaus freundlich. Wir, d.h. ein älteres Paar, haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und werden jederzeit wieder hier absteigen. Zufriedenheitsgrad : 4 von 5 Sternen! Viva Alicia Guesthouse !Genuine Expedia guest review
"Tarifs prétentieux pour une maison pas insonorisée"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location and good room, but where's the staff"
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! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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"
09/29/14 Jaydavo Warrington, United Kingdom
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.
09/27/14 David866 Newtown, Powys
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.."
09/12/14 markandgina Cornwall
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.
"Nice villa in quiet neighborhood"
07/05/14 Usman K Stockholm, Sweden
We took a bus from malaga airport to the property which took us about 50 mins and one change. The villa is in a quiet neighborhood and was itself nicely decorated from inside. We were given double bed room on 2nd floor. There was no elevator but stairs were beautifully decorated with many plants. The room had cupboard, small LCD TV, table/chair. The attached bathhroom was small but very clean. The villa is 10min walk to Plaza de la Marced (where there are many place to eat), 5 mins from Plaza le Marced to Alcazaba (which has free entry on Sunday) and 5 mins from Alcazaba entrance to Malaga Cathedral and Picaso museum (free after 6pm). From cathedral, Calle Marquese is just few minutes away which is main shopping street. IMHO> One to one and half day is enough to visit Malaga
"Very welcoming house"
06/20/14 K N Itala, Italy
Staying in Villa Ailicia gives you the feeling to briefly really live Málaga, you immediately feel at home. Friendly, uncomplicated welcome by the hostess. Nicely decorated house. Very pleasant to have breakfast outside. Only two small remarks ... I think we had room 9, it would be good to somehow fix the back of the bed to the wall, as it makes a lot of noise every time someone moves in bed, causing many wake ups during the night. Second small remark, I personnally feel much more comfortable with white instead of coloured towels. I have no doubt the towels where clean, but white, even though more boring, gives a better hygienic feeling. This B&B is defenitely recommendable!
"Our visit experience"
06/14/14 faithandhope2live Canada
I would like to share my experiences that my husband and I had during our stay in Villa Alicia Guest house in Malaga, Spain. This is an older house but well maintained and comfortable. You can use the kitchen to do your own cooking if you don't want to eat out. The 2 sisters Ava and Esther are very helpful. Ava even helped me carry my luggage up to the third floor to our room. The room is not big but enough, no air con, but it cools down a lot after sunset. We even needed a blanket to sleep. They were willing to store our 2 carry on luggage for a few days while we headed to another city before returning back there to stay for 2 more nights. The location is great, just a 15 minute walk to the tourist attractions, Alcazaba ,Coracha, Gibraifaro, Basilica of Santa Maria Victoria and the new port (good restaurant). 5 more minute walk will be at Cathedral Malaga. We just walked around to see most of the things that we planned to see. We highly recommend this place for a relaxing wonderful stay.
