About Soho Boutique La Merced

Overlooking Malaga’s bustling La Merced Square, the Soho Boutique La Merced offer guests self catering accommodation in the heart of the city.

Each apartment comes equipped with its own kitchenette, while the larger suites, higher up in the building, also offer balconies with views of the cathedral. Air conditioning and TV’s are both standard.

The reception, open 24 hours, can help with tours, transfers and practical advice. Wi-Fi is free, and available throughout the Feel Apartments.

The central location means that those not self catering will have any number of great dining options in the surrounding streets. Reception staff will be happy to give their personal recommendations.

Malaga’s Old Town is just seven minutes’ away on foot, while beach lovers will find popular Playa de la Malagueta just one mile from the apartments. On a more cultural note, Malaga’s imposing Alcazaba is just 200 yards away.

Positive Reviews

Walking distance to everywhere

Certainly the most mentioned positive point about the apartments was their location, which is described as very central. Guests really felt that they could walk anywhere they wanted to go, perhaps with the exception of the reluctant trip back to the airport.

Apartments really are fully equipped

Several guests go out of their way to point out that the apartment they were allocated contained the cutlery, crockery, towels and equipment actually required by the number of people occupying the flat.

Wi-Fi actually works, and is fast

Contrary to their usual experience at holiday apartments, many guests specifically point out that the Wi-Fi both worked, and was fast enough, for their purposes. They were certainly pleasantly surprised.

Negative Reviews

Reception and check-in at another location

By far the thing that most irked guests was that they had to check-in at a hostel some way from the apartments themselves. This seems to have created quite a bit of confusion and unhappiness, and served as a poor start to guest's holidays.

Very noisy at night

Many mention that they paid for the central location with an increase in noise from revellers outside at night. Also mentioned was that the rooms do not seem to have good internal soundproofing. Several guests mention slamming doors, shouts across the hallways, and even just the regular activities in the adjacent apartments as disturbing them at night.

Views less spectacular than advertised

Quite a few guests who had specifically booked rooms described as having a good view were sorely disappointed on entering their rooms. The actual views were described as very underwhelming.
