Perched on a hillside to the north of the city, the best thing about Villa Guadalupe are the wonderful views of Malaga and the Mediterranean beyond. It’s a modern build, but inside has a traditional feel to it that contrasts with the vibrant artwork by Dutch artist Irene van Vlijman.
If you fancy staying in a hotel slightly off the beaten track and don’t mind not being in the city centre, Villa Guadalupe could be your ideal accommodation.
This hotel sits in the foothills in the northern part of Malaga. As a result, it boasts sweeping views of the city and Malaga Bay, particularly spectacular at sunrise and sunset. Villa Guadalupe’s location gives you the feeling of being in Malaga, but without the urban hustle and bustle.
On the flip side, Malaga tourist attractions are some distance away and it isn’t easy to get into town by public transport. As a result, your own transport is a must or you can get a taxi (from €10 one way). That said, there’s a good restaurant onsite, so you don’t need to go into Malaga to dine.
The 11 rooms are very spacious and include art work (mosaics and tapestries) by Irene van Vlijmen, giving this hotel a unique touch. It’s well worth paying the extra for a one with a sea-facing balcony.
Triple rooms are also available, with the option of three single beds. Rooms come fully equipped, including terrace furniture.
Guests have use of the following at Villa Guadalupe:
- Outdoor pool (open during the summer season).
- Loungers and chill-out area.
- Onsite restaurant.
