Archidona is easy to reach from Málaga airport, just 40 minutes away. Granada airport is just under an hour. The cultural cities of Sevilla, Córdoba and Granada are all within an hours drive.
Whilst the hotel doesn’t have its own parking, there is plenty of parking nearby and a drop off point outside the house. Or Antequera´s high speed train station (20 minutes away) can whisk you to and from Madrid in just two hours, with a taxi to the hotel.

About The Owners
After years studying, travelling and living in Spain, owners David and Myles were keen to create a hotel that allowed them to share their love of the country and matched the high standards of service and hospitality they’d experienced on travels around the world. With careers in travel and marketing behind them, they opened Almohalla 51 to welcome guests in summer 2012. You can read about their story and setting up their gay friendly boutique hotel here.
Matt and David : July 2014
We discovered Almohalla 51 through the 'Further Afield' website, and as soon as we arrived we knew that all the reviews we had read were accurate and we were in for a wonderful holiday. The bedrooms were tastefully decorated and furnished and were cool despite the wonderfully sunny days. The pool and garden areas are quiet and relaxing...we couldn't believe how the day slipped by once we had settled by the pool! David and Myles are wonderful hosts, with plenty of suggestions of places to visit and eat. We did hire a car, and found the driving easy (due to the directions each day from David and Myles) and could park just outside each time we returned. On David and Myles' recommendation, we combined Almohalla 51 with two nights in Malaga which worked out extremely well. We would highly recommended staying at Almohalla 51, and we will be sure to return!
Fin and Michael: July 2013
Just returned from a great stay at Almohalla 51. The owners David & Myles are welcoming, relaxed and helpful, always willing to offer advice and tips on things to do. The wide choice of breakfasts were all excellent, served on the warm terrace. The house is a wonderful mix of comfort and style, with plenty of quiet spaces both inside and outside to chill out in. We were hooked on spending the early evenings watching the sun set by the pool. We’d highly recommend Almohalla 51, if you want comfort, style and luxury. David and Myles are excellent hosts. I’m sure we’ll be back.
