Absolutely top place- aivan huippu paikka

  • 5 of 5

Aivan huippu paikka!

Manuel oli erittäin ystävällinen ja avulias isäntä. Asunto hyvin viehättävä, moderni sisustus ja varustus erinomainen. Kaikki toimi hyvin niin pesukoneet, kuin kuivaussysteemi pyykinpesukoneessa ja Nespresso kahvinkeitin. Kotiin palattua piti ostaa oma! Vuoteet erinomaiset, en ole koskaan nukkunut niin hyvällä vuodesohvalla. Asunto soveltuu parhaiten pariskunnalle /+ 2 lasta tai kolmelle hengelle. Ja sijainti - kaikki Malagan pääkohteet kävely etäisyydellä. Hyvät ravintolat alkaen ulko-ovelta. Vaikka on "pelipaikoilla", ei ole yhtään liikenteenmelua, iltayöstä läheisistä ravintolaista kantautuu hieman puheensorinaa, mutta se ei meitä häirinnyt nukkumasta hyvin. Asunto on ylimmässä kerroksessa, vaikka ikkunat ovat kapealle kujalle, niin aurinko pääsee paistamaan isoista ikkunoista sisälle. Sopivasta lämpötilasta huolehtii hyvin toimiva ilmastointilaite. Vietimme aivan mahtavat 6 viikkoa alkaen lokakuun lopusta Malagassa.

Best stay ever.

  • 5 of 5

Hi Manuel,

This is to say thank you for a wonderful time spent in your apartment in Malaga. It was very kind of you to meet us at the airport and show us around the harbour on the way to the apartment. The apartment was even better than we thought it would be from the photographs on the net. It is very well-appointed with a very modern well equipped kitchen and a great bathroom. The sliding doors on the bedroom gave us so much extra space. The location could not be more perfect. On a square so near the old centre of Malaga and surrounded by restaurants and cafes, but so very quiet. We loved the ceiling to floor windows with views over the city. They let in so much sunshine all day long, and when it got a little bit hot we were able to become comfortable by switching on the air conditioning. For us it made sightseeing so easy and enjoyable as everything we wanted to do or visit was so close at hand. There was even a baker and a small well stocked supermarket just around the corner. We had the perfect city holiday.

one of the best holidays ever

  • 5 of 5

Manuel apartment is highly recommended. It would be hard to find a better place to spend time in Malaga. Fantastic location - just in the heart of the city in an astonishing historic building, full of character. It’s an easy walk to nearly everywhere that is relevant for a tourist.

The apartment is such a lovely space, tasteful décor really enchanting, amazingly renovation with a great fitted kitchen with all the appliances, wonderful bathroom, comfy bed, lots of storage space and a nice sitting area with a great sofa where we loved to relax and chill out after a hard day sightseeing. I can tell you we truly enjoyed our stay! Everything was nice and tidy and in spotless conditions. Wi fi was super fast too.

The apartment has air conditioner that we didn’t use, preferring to sleep with the windows open to enjoy the wonderful temperatures of mid September – it was 16 degrees in London and 30/32 in Malaga, so imagine the climate shock. It was pure bliss, heavenly.

The area is nice to walk around even at night, packed of cool bars and restaurants. There is a bit of noise from the square but it didn’t affect the quality of our sleep.

Manuel is a gem, a real superstar. You can’t find a coolest man. Our BA plane was scheduled to arrive in Malaga at 22 and then was delayed. We ended up touching Malaga at 23,30, and despite the lateness Manuel was there waiting for us without a complain. We felt he is very genuine and warm, always accommodating.

The whole experience was beautiful, we loved every second in Malaga and we’ll be back with more family, planning to attend some Spanish class. Manuel’s apartment will be our preferred choice.

All in all it’s a five star for me.

Malaga, wait for us!

Chic apartment in convenient and lively location

  • 5 of 5

We felt welcomed from the first moment when J.Manuel picked us up from the train station. Along the short drive to his apartment, he pointed out sights of interest to help us get familiar with the surroundings. When we arrived at the apartment, we walked through the historic façade on Plaza de la Merced and entered the completely modernized building, complete with lift (very nice feature at the end of a busy day).

The lovely apartment is situated on the top floor; and has an airy and spacious feel, due to the high ceilings. The furnishings and fittings of the apartment were all modern and clean. Great care is taken to keep the apartment in top condition. I especially loved the dishwasher, since I do not have one in my own home! What a treat!!

The location could not have been better. We were able to walk everywhere. Indeed, there were some tourist brochures provided, which outlined several walks depending on your interests - historic, Picasso, nature, etc. Many, many bars and restaurants in the immediate area are available to sample local food and beverages. We also loved the seafront area, which also abounded in fun places to relax.

We would most definitely recommend this apartment and would love to stay here again ourselves.

Great apartment in a central location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights and really enjoyed our stay

The apartment has everything you need for a city break

Everything works well.

You are on the top floor to the side and back of the building, the building has a lift.

With the bars and restaurants on the ground floor open till the early hours we had no problem with noise. From the windows you can see the top of the cathedral. The apartment is really central for the historic district, an easy walk to the beaches and port area. The wifi worked well and Jose was really friendly and a great host. We look forward to returning to malaga and hope to rent the apartment again

Excellent Location - Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I would like to thank Jose for his excellent hospitality. Jose made my stay in Malaga very comfortable. The apartment is a lovely little gem in Malaga City. You can not ask for a better location, right in the centre of the city in Plaza De La Merced. Roman theatre, Alcazaba, Gibralfaro and the beach all within very short walking distance.

A general supermarket is just round the corner, lovely bars and restaurants few steps away. A hip, lively and family friendly place. An authentic Flamenco venue just five minutes walk away, where you can enjoy live Flamenco music.

The apartment is fully equipped with all the essentials. High ceilings, big windows, fully equipped kitchen, compact shower room and comfortable double bed. Feels like home away from home. I'm already planning to come back and stay here again.

Overall, best stay in Malaga. Highly recommended.

Thank you Jose, you have been a brilliant host and a lovely friend. We'll definitely see you again...

In the center of Málaga, is one of the most beautiful squares in Spain, Plaza de la Merced .In all buildings where Picasso was born is this elegant apartment.

There is no better place to experience the heart of the Costa del Sol, surrounded by restaurants and shopping streets. In a pleasant walk you can reach any point emblematic of the historical center, 'The birthplace of Picasso', 'The Citadel', the 'cathedral malaga' or 'Museo Thyssen'. To change the city by the beach, 'Malagueta is a1,4 KM. away.

A major advantage of the location of the apartment in the Plaza de la Merced is a public parking as well as Taxi and bus stops. Also has a market and supermarkets and pharmacies within walking distance.
