Where to stay in Malaga

For a chance to experience the heart of the city center, you will want to stay in the area surrounding Calle Larios and Alameda Principal. This constitutes the commercial shopping district of the city and is a convenient walk to the city's main attractions and beaches. Another option is the historical city center, where an array of lively tapas bars and shops intermix with the dramatic Gothic architecture. For a true beach vacation, choose to stay in one of the hotels lining the city beach where you can soak up views of the beautiful Costa Dorada away from the hustle and bustle of the city center.

  • Very interesting stories about glasses, where and how were they from. Our tour guide is the owner of the place, very nice and friendly, he gave a lot details about his knowledge of his collections.
  • Absolut fantastic. The owner knows everything about glass and furnitures. He is so nice and I really recomend everyone to go here
  • Amazing trip over secrets of glass with collection owner. Must go.
  • The owner of the museum gave us a very interesting guided tour of his beautiful collection of glass stained glass windows and furniture in his amazing house.He did speak a fraction too quickly.Well worth a visit
  • We wanted to visit this museum because of the rave reviews about the collection. But we were a bit surprised that nobody in the neighbourhood seemed to know about it (Malagans). Anyway, when we finally got there a man behind the desk (perhaps the owner that reviews seemed so positive about) seemed interested enough in our presence. When we asked how come locals did not know of the museum he explained that it is private. But i was surprised that another man (Anglophone) said twice within 3 minutes of our arrival that we should sit down outside and be quiet and he would start a tour in 5 minutes. Anyway, I paid the entrance fee and went out. By then the "guide" was with my wife and our son (who had not said a word up to that point). The Guide then started, not by saying hello, but by pontificating like a medieval priest saying "before we begin, we have some rules for children". At that point I decided that I did not want to visit the collection. When I told the man behind the desk that the guide was rather rude, to my surprise, he explained that well, he is an old man. I told him that notwithstanding, if they run a museum, their guide should be trained in some public relations.
