City Center Apartment in Malaga, Spain

There are so many places to choose from in Malaga it can be difficult to narrow down. Trust me, it took awhile to narrow down where exactly to stay and which Airbnb to choose. After some research and reading the reviews, I decided on a 2 bedroom apartment located in Centro Historico.


This 2 bedroom apartment is located in the center of the city, Centro Historico on the 3rd floor. It truly is in the center of everything. You can go right out the door and there is nightlife, shopping, restaurants, and more steps away. One particular morning I went across a very small street for breakfast. An evening I went to get some dinner right around the corner.

The location was pretty great. Took a moment to find it since the taxi dropped us off and instructed us to walk. The street it is located on, cars can’t go down. Many streets in that area are like that so rolling luggage through the streets is pretty much inevitable.

The elevator up is pretty small. 2 people at a time unless you stand a certain way would be the limit. Upon entering the apartment is smelled really nice and clean. As soon as you walked in the first bedroom was straight ahead. The room had a closet with full length mirror. No windows, but a window was right outside the room.

Next to the bedroom is a nice sized bathroom. There were plenty of amenities including a hair dryer, lotion, body wash, first aid kit, and more. No bath tub, but a nice stand up shower. Then there is another bedroom that is slightly bigger than the first. Lots of natural light from the windows. A huge closest with extra towels, blankets, sheets, playpen, and a beach bag ready to go was in it.

The kitchen, living room, and dining room is all open. The couch can be turned into a bed for 2 more people to sleep on. The kitchen came with cups, pots, utensils, plates, bowls, etc. There was also tea, coffee, honey, and sugar. A dishwasher and washer/dryer was in the kitchen as well. I did use the washer, but couldn’t figure out the dryer portion so I just hung my stuff up to dry. Both bedrooms and the living room area have air conditioning that works great!

An Overview

The apartment was really nice and clean and the stay was enjoyed. Although you could hear all the street noise from the living room and front bedroom until the wee hours, I managed to get some sleep. The location was excellent. The owner was always reachable and gave recommendations and answered any questions or concerns had. It would have been cool if the room I was in had a television since I didn’t always want to be in the livingroom room. I would stay there again.

    Looks like a great choice for staying in Malaga. What did we do before Airbnb?

    • Holly Dayz

      Yea I liked it. Very nice and centrally located.

  • loisaltermark

    That looks like a great place, and the location seems convenient to everything. Staying in an apartment is such a good option, and can make you feel like a local!

    • Holly Dayz

      Yes it is. We even went to the store and got some snacks and beverages for the fridge. I was able to make my tea in the morning.

  • danazeliff

    Looks like a great apartment. We always try to search out central apartments when traveling as well. I love having everything available right outside my door.

    • Holly Dayz

      Yea it was really nice to just walk out the apartment and have so many options around us.

  • Claudia Laroye

    What an adorable little apartment! It looks perfect situated in the center of Malaga, in the heart of thea action. That’s where we like to stay on our city trips too.

    • Holly Dayz

      Definitely a lot of action everywhere.

  • Peter Korchnak

    I’ve wanted to visit Malaga ever since elementary school where one of my classmates’ last name was Malaga. His brother lost his left hand when a makeshift bomb he made exploded prematurely. But I digress. The city looks neat.

    • Holly Dayz

      Wow that is crazy. I hope you get to visit though.

  • alexkallimanis

    Looks like a great location that is well kept! Noise is often the price for being right in the thick of it, but in Spain I feel it’s probably worth it as the night life is fantastic!!

    • Holly Dayz

      Even after everything closes, there is still plenty of noise for hours. After awhile exhaustion takes over anyway.

  • Annie

    This looks bright and cozy, I’m a big fan of natural light. It’s great that the couch can be turned into a bed for 2 more people in case you have visiting friends!

    • Holly Dayz

      I love natural light as well so was happy it filled my room.

  • Elaine Masters

    I’ve loved renting apartments and studios through Airbnb. Pity there was street noise but what a lovely space to call your refuge while in Malaga.

    • Holly Dayz

      So do I. Yea the street noise was only at night into the wee hours lol…prime sleeping time.

      Malaga is so nice. I really enjoyed it and it made it better that everything was right outside the apartment.

  • barb

    It looks like a charming little place. I hope the beds were comfy. I liked that you had a balcony.

    • Holly Dayz

      The beds were comfy. I wish we had a balcony that would have been a nice added touch, but we didn’t.

  • SocaMom® (@SocaMomDC)
