About this listing
For years, Raul and I have been super happy in this apartment. Two years ago little Lola was born and we had to move. Now we are thrilled to think what happy people will stay.
The best thing about it it's certainly that is in the historic center, within walking distance of new Carmen Thyssen Museum and 5 minutes from the Picasso Museum, the Picasso Foundation, Calle Larios, the Cathedral .... and only 15 minutes (walking) to the beach!
- One bedroom with king size bed (1'60x2 meters) and a closet.
- Living room with comfortable sofa (not sofa-bed but more than once friends slept on it!)
- Kitchen with everything you need for cooking (microwave, refrigerator, etc ...) and a washer-dryer machine.
- Bathroom with bathtub.
- Air conditioning hot-cool.
- Two very nice balconies (one in the bedroom and one in the bedroom) to give plenty of light into the house.
- ADSL internet
The livingroom is decorated with sheets by a superb illustrator friend of ours. If you like any, you can take them very, very cheapie!
It is well connected (from the center there are line buses to all points of Malaga and you can also walk to the bus station and train station) and the area has absolutely everything (shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, the Central Market, etc..).
It's a semi-pedestrian street only allowed for residents cars so no cars on the street.
Check-in and check-out times are flexible, we just ask that if there's some other guest checking in/out the same day and schedules are incompatible, please check in-out at about (phone number hidden).
Cristina was an excellent host who was always quick to reply to our questions about the apartment and Malaga. She and Raul even sent a list of helpful suggestions covering places to eat, drink and shop.
The apartment was perfect for our needs. A kitchen with everything you need, the living room was spacious and the bedroom had a large comfortable bed. There is plenty of storage if you need that.
The a/c quickly cooled the apartment which was needed in the heat of Malaga.
Outside the apartment there are plenty of bars, cafes and shops to suit any taste. You are right in the heart of the action and a short walk from the Picasso museum (a must!) and the alcazaba.
Some people have mentioned the noise on the street but it was no worse than an average European street which has a few bars and shops. We slept fine.
Finally I would recommend the bar/cafe Recyclo which is a 5 minute walk away with a excellent menu and good priced drink.
Thanks again to Cristina and Raul
Christina's apartment is perfectly located, clean and comfortable. We had a great time in Malaga. Christina helped us out with al of our questions and gave us a lot of information about the city. I would definitely recommend her place!
Christina was extremely nice and very responsive. All of her instructions on how to get to her apt. Was very helpful. Place was very centrally located so it made it easy to get around. Only downfall especially summer time is there is only one AC in the living room and not in bedroom. Otherwise Christina had beach towels n beach umbrella which we used when we went to the beach!
Both Cristina and Raúl are very helpful and kind hosts, they have given us lots of useful tips both in advance and during our holiday to make our stay very enjoyable.
The location of the flat is really convenient as most major sights in Málaga are at an arm’s length, though you have to factor in the lively Spanish night life and the possibility of having neighbours slightly more active (and louder) at night than what you are used to. Even though the building is nicely renovated, you can hear every noise (talking, television, air-conditioning) from around, which might be sometimes disturbing if you are trying to rest or sleep. All in all we had a lovely time there and would recommend the hosts to anyone.
Christina and Raul are the most helpful and nice hosts one would expect. Excellent loc action,comfortable apt. with exc. air conditioning. Highly rscomended.
Cristina and Raul were great hosts, who quickly responded to all our communication. Their apartment is clean and comfortable. It was in the perfect location to stroll around Malaga! Thank you :)
Квартира Кристины и Рауля прекрасное место, в котором царит атмосфера уюта и комфорта. Мы сразу почувствовали себя как дома! Соответствует фото и есть всё необходимое для удобного проживания. Находится в центре старого города Малаги, рядом есть магазины, рестораны, 10 минут до центрального рынка.
В центре Малаги шумно, поэтому на ночь нужно было закрывать окна.
Ребята всегда были готовы ответить на все наши вопросы и всячески помогали! Спасибо им большое!
Christine and Raul apartments is a great place! We had a very good holidays in Malaga. Flat is so wonderful, like our home. It according photos and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Located in the heart of the old town of Malaga, next to shops, restaurants, 10 minutes to the central market.
It was a noisy in the center of Malaga, thats why we closed windows for night.
The guys were always ready to answer all our questions and helped in every task! Thank you very much!
