We have stayed in 10 Airbnb sites thus far across France and Spain, all around the same budget range. Sorry to say that this apartment did not measure up to the standard we have experienced in all other locations for the price we have been paying.
+ Wifi, including extender for rooftop
+ Rooftop itself is nice on a sunny afternoon.
+ Location is ok. Fairly close to the main sites but in a 'low rent' street
+ Detailed joining instruction & self check-in worked fine
- Bad smell through building (not host’s fault, but it does smell musty)
- Shower scalds if any other tap turned on at same time
- Linen is thread bare (towels & sheets). Needs replacing.
- Bathmat was wet & smelly upon arrival.
- Pictures on Airbnb show the apartment a lot ‘shinier’ than it really is
- Much of the furniture is flimsy and cheap.
- Low quality fit-out.
- Initially poor communications with “Sunny” - unresponsive to 3 messages leading up to our arrival. Took a “I have not heard from you - is all still ok?” message to get a reply.
To be fair, Sunny was responsive after that.
Positive: Free car parking in a secured 2. floor of a parking lot 3 min walk for the house (its true that its quite narrow, but as it's near the old city, with no or very limited parking, this is an advantage for everyone with a car.) Convenient (though not very charming nor pretty) location as close to the old city etc., key pick up without a fixed render-vous, host is responding quickly. Some important equipment as iron and ironing board is available. Its noisy but it calms down during the night.
Negative: Pictures are absolutely misleading. The apartment is by FAR not as cozy and clean, it is quite worn down (in particular sofa and kitchen) and dirty. It is located in a house under construction. The kitchen was particularly dirty (food left overs, sticky forks and knifes and handles, a dirty sandwich toaster, same applies for pans etc which are quite old, some drawers and handles where very old and broken). It occurred to us, that somebody is trying to make quick money out of a place which was puzzled together quickly and heartlessly with mainly second hand furniture. Sunny was responding quickly but the anonymous behavior was a bit weird- our guess is that he/she is managing several apartments for someone or some people, as the owner of the parking we used was another name than "Sunny". Anyways, as we were only there for 2 nights and it was fine. I wished to have ended our Spain trip in Malaga in a place that feels more comfortable. Wouldn't recommend it for more than 2 people and for people who do expect more than just a place to sleep. Next time we will invest more and get what we pay for.
We are quite disappointed by Air B&B because this is not the first time, an add's picture are misleading and we are dealing with a business rather than a private place, that was set up with heart. We decided to skip Air B&B for a while.
Really easy arrival, keys as promised in lock box outside building opposite. This was valuable as had 5hr flight delay so didn't get in til nearly 4am. Great location, very central and easy walking everywhere despite having 5 and 7 yr old on tow. Particularly brilliant spot for Semana Santa, as right in the thick if it, but still quiet enough to get good night's sleep. Apartment very clean, but fair to say it was basic, but this is exactly what we wanted. All towels and linen provided, big fridge, basic cooking facilities, but great cafés and restaurants on the doorstep so not much need. Great apartment for our three night stay.
I have a couple of positives about this apartment. Firstly the location is good, next to Plaza Merced.I found the key safe check in easy and the wi fi worked well.
But after that I can say that I would absolutely not recommend this apartment.. It was dirty.. The sofa in the lounge was ready for rubbish tip.. The kitchen and appliances plus utensils and crockery etc were grubby and grimy.. Cups etc stained..
There were no proper blinds or curtains in the lounge, just an ill fitting see through curtain with a small blood stain on.. So no privacy at night time or any time. The tiles in the shower were mouldy and needed cleaning..
The double bedroom didn't have a decent blind or curtain and had an old cheap one which let the light through. The single bedroom did have a blind, however look out of the window and you look onto a dirty dismal outside area that could do with a good sweep and tidy up and cleaning..There was a VHS player in the apartment... I didn't think these were used anymore.
The fact that there is a cleaning fee is a joke, the place needed disinfecting.. I was so glad I was out for most of the time and wasn't staying any longer than 2 nights.. I was glad to leave early on the morning of check out..
Apartment was great. Right in the middle of everything.
Great centrally located apartment with good wifi. The parking next door was excellent and very convenient. Sunny was good in providing advise and very quick in communicating with me. Would recommend.
Beaucoup de difficultés à trouver la rue en voiture.
Pour accéder à l'appartement il faut passer par la Calle Lagunillas.
Aucune indication non plus sur l'adresse du parking pour la voiture.
Nous n'avons pas rencontré Sunny, tous les échanges se sont faits par messages.
L'appartement est fonctionnel et bien situé pour visiter Malaga.
Le parking est indispensable lorsque l'on vient en voiture.
Great apartment. Clean, good location close and nice rooftop terrace. Communication with Sunny was easy and quick, just like checkin. The free parking spot was really handy. We recommend this place!
I really enjoy stay in Malaga with my friends. It was clean and comfy. It was really easy to find a place and all is organized so well that we even did not met Sunny but were handled very professionally. We will definitely stay there again if we pass by.
The contact with Sunny was adequate and efficient. The appartment is stylish and very clean. Its located a few minutes walk from Plaza Merced and with that also at comfortable distance from the most interesting sites. Kitchen luxury and well equiped. Only minor thing for us was the bed which is relatively short, but we have above average lenght. It's a comfortable place to stay and we certainly recommend this appartment.
Oisin and his girlfriend were great guests, very easy going and left the place spotless. Highly recommended!
Oisin was a very friendly and respectful guest, I would definitely recommend him and I would be happy to host for him again
No lo hemos conocido mucho ya que se a quedado una noche!!pero es muy respetuoso
