We really liked the stay in the apartment. It was really clean and we had a nice soft bed (these features were very welcome after a two weeks stay in Morocco). Unfortunately you can't really cook a meal in the apartment because there is only a microwave/combi oven. We also missed a water cooker. You can walk in 15 minutes to the city center. Very close by is a supermarket and several nice restaurants/lunch rooms. The girl from the apartment was really friendly and helpful.

Everything about the place was excellent except that right across the street is a garage with really loud doors. Cars keep coming in and out all night and early in the morning. It took us three to four nights to get used to this. The bed is great though, one of the best we've ever had in any hotel or hostel. But, if you like peace and quiet, bring some earplugs; good ones!


Great to have our 'home' in Malaga. Iwas very clean. Cooking is not op option in the small kitchen, but you can make coffee and tea. Plaza de la Merced is nearby (max. 10 minute walk) and a great place to have breakfast or dinner.


The owner Olga and her daughter Lara are great people. They made the apartment to a really comfortable and clean place. You have your own room but sharing kitchen and bathroom with another room, absolutely ok. The kitchen is just useful for preparing small and cold plates because there is no place to cook. I enjoyed the time and can highly recommend the apartment! You got a great stay for an excellent price!


The place was in a really good location and the staff were very felexible especially when we missed our flgiht and didnt arrive til 1 in the morning and we had to communicate with them to meet the next morning to arrange paying for the accomodation. The appartment was very clean and modern. It is quite small but enough for what we needed. There is no stove top (hob) or oven only a microwave and mini fridge - we became masters at cooking in a microwave! Great value for money - i'd recommend it!


Great new apartment - in strict center of Malaga, clean, good contact with the owners. Worth to stay in!!

very nice & clean rooms, comfortable bed!


My boyfriend and I loved to stay at Los Monos! It is an absolutely clean, modern, quiet and lovely place. The owner was so kind and friendly, so we are verry thankful to have been able to stay there! If I ever go to Malaga again, I will definitely try to get a room there again :)


We had a great time Los Monos, and Malaga is a beautiful city. The apartment is located a bit of a walk from the center, but close to its best square: the Plaza de la Merced with the Picasso musuem. Were greeted on arrival by Lara, who was sweet enough to walk us to a late dinner spot. Please do take note of the $30 cleaning fee.
