Even though we arrived a little late Rubén cheerfully waited for us on the street in front of the house and gave us a warm welcome. We had the feeling as if we were the first guests in the apartment as everything was soo new and clean. We absolutely loved this modern, stylish apartment, it is carefully and thoughtfully equipped with everything, and there is lovely decoration and useful details wherever you look. Even though it is very central (just a bit over 5 minutes to the cathedral, Alcazaba, etc.) it is completely quiet at night. The AC can be controlled centrally, but also each room has a display from which you can set the temperature individually. The mattresses and pillows are – like everything – new and of the best quality (my mum actually said she couldn’t remember having ever slept so well because of this, the silence, darkness and perfect temperature). There was also a welcome sign for us, pastries, water, milk, tea, coffee, etc. and Simona and Rubén have prepared two pages of useful information and personal recommendations for their guests (supermarkets, bakeries, shops, pharmacies, restaurants with different categories with descriptions and tipps what to order) and a map where they are all marked with numbers. (make sure to try out Julia’s Bakery!) The communication was perfect via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) throughout our stay and we really felt like we were staying at our friends’ apartment (we also happened to do the “caminito del rey” the same day, so could exchange experiences and fotos) and Rubén ordered us a Taxi to go to the airport. If you arrive by car, there is a parking called “Las Delicias” just a couple of minutes walk to the apartment.
For a week we stayed in this wonderful, cosy and decent apartment in the city centre of Malaga. The location of the apartment is perfect whether you want to go to out for shopping, bars, restaurants, museums, harbour or beach.
The accommodation is spacious, very clean and well maintained. The rooms are practically divided. Also all the facilities you need are there, such as dish washer, washing machine, toaster, a baby cot.
The owners of the apartment are very hospitable which we appreciated a lot. Also before we checked in, they made you already feel welcome and at home. A big thanks to them! :)
To make it short, absolutely recommendable!!
Ruben and Simona could not have been more welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. Having a welcome basket with a cake and milk, as well as the essentials like sugar, coffee, and tea, was an extra that most places don't provide. They had napkins, laundry soap, dishwasher soap, shampoo, and shower gel as well--which, again, many places do not provide. We always look for quiet spots--sometimes difficult to find in city centers, but this one is on a pedestrian street, which made a big difference. The bed was comfortable, the linens perfect, and there was plenty of room to spread out maps, work on our laptops, and relax in the evenings. During the day we wandered around Malaga, walking everywhere, enjoying the waterfront, the broad pedestrianized streets and plazas, and the friendly people. Good food, too! We give this apartment our highest recommendation because, as the title says, we had wonderful hosts, the location is perfect, and the apartment is comfortable and quiet.
This is a stylish and well appointed apartment. There is everything you would require to meet your needs whether it be for a few days or a few weeks. If you choose to have meals in, the apartment has all the appliances you need and there are supermarkets within 2 and 4 minutes by foot. Guests are welcomed with hot and cold beverages. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the bedrooms are quiet despite being within a short walk of excellent lively bars and places to eat. Malaga Old town centre is but 8 minutes walk.
Ruben and his family are incredibly helpful.
This is an apartment you will return to and one you will recommend to your friends..
