My girlfriend and I spent 5 nights at Villa Alicia in August 2013. The guesthouse has a great independent feel, with a quirky reception area. We stayed in two different rooms, one with a shared bathroom and one en-suite. Both rooms were great and were decorated in a Spanish style with a modern-unique twist. The shared bathroom was every clean... More

We had a great stay at the Villa Alicia Guest House. First thing we noticed was the nice smell of jasmine flowers. Our room was comfortable, light, clean and cosy. Breakfasts in the morning were great: outside on the terrace, good coffee, fresh tomato rasp, cheese, olive oil. We were also given great advice on what to do and see... More

This is the second time we've visited this charming villa 20 minutes walk from the centre of Málaga. The rooms are comfortable well cleaned. We have travelled extensively in Andalucia and really enjoy the laid back vibe of this cool little guest house. We'll be back soon.

The hotel is located just 10/15 minutes from city center in a quiet residential area. The girls at reception are very nice and helpful, they gave us good advices how to visit the city and where to eat (for example the Pedregalejo, the perfect place to have good fish in Malaga). Once we arrived we were proposed a room upgrade... More

We stayed in the room with a terrace and would recommend to couples who want to sit in peace and watch the sunset. The guest-house is tastefully decorated and very clean. Staff are friendly but some do not speak English. There are a fair few steps to climb so not idea for those with mobility problems. In terms of location... More

Villa Alicia is a lovely funky guesthouse. Its about a 10 min walk downhill from the historical centre in Malaga so the location is great. The staff are really lovely and helpful with really good English. As the building is old with high ceilings, you might need ear plugs if sensitive to noise as the sound travels in the building....

I stayed at Villa Alicia with a friend for about one and a half weeks. The location is great, the neighborhood is quiet and it's close to the center.
