I have recently relocated to Malaga, and I would like to host a piano party on Saturday, September 9th. I live in Malaga City, next to Malagueta beach overlooking the Med on one side and the historical city and port on the other side. All the local attractions are within walking distance.

I have a nice piano,(Bosendorfer 214VC), and would love to host a piano party in my home, and invite my PianoWorld friends. So, if you live in Costa del Sol, or would like to visit here, come join us!

That sounds great PatH! I look forward to seeing you and your sister.

I will post hotel suggestions and sight-seeing ideas in the next week or so. Malaga is very walkable, and it is easy to get from the Airport to the downtown/Malagueta area. The Historical district, Muelle uno (restaurants and shops, the castle Gibralfaro, and The Moorish fortress Alcazaba and (of course the beach!) are all in walking distance from our place.

Here are a couple of hotel suggestions:

https://ms-maestranza-dot-ms-hoteles.appspot.com/booking1?sid=893c6759-d577-4357-8a33-5f32fcc3dcfa

We have stayed at the MS Maestranza, and it is quiet and pretty nice overall. It is the closest hotel.

http://hoteleliseos.es/

I have not stayed at this hotel, but it looks OK.

There are a lot of apartment rentals available as well. Some of these require a minimum three night stay. Here is a good site:

this is seriously interesting! I'm not sure if I could participate yet, but I've been once to Malaga and I've loved it! I'll see if I manage to fit a little flight to Andalucia in my 2017 summer plans smile

My Bosie gets crane lifted up to the 15th floor on April 24. I am not sure I can watch, but it will be exciting!

I keep price-checking flights to Malaga, and then reminding myself that I have a BIG trip this summer and no vacation budget left after that smile

You'll have to video your new piano being lifted up to your apartment, that sounds terrifyingly amazing!!

After getting a piano up a mountain, moving one to the 15th floor will be a piece of cake!

Still have not managed to confirm nor deny whether or not I will be coming solo or with another, as such I have put down a reservation on the hotel which I can amend until the end of august just to play it safe smile
Fingers crossed everything works out and we can both turn up, have got this at "Ms Maestranza Hotel"

Looking at the flights etc though, they're damn costly for this specific weekend... nearly double the other EPP costs so far, it has me a little concerned I just hope I can find a good deal/afford it.

I am sorry to hear that flights are so expensive, UKIkarus! Malaga is usually cheap. I do not know of anything going on that weekend. I hope your friend can come as well.

We couldn't get in at the MS Maestranza, we're a bit down the road.
Our flights were a bit more expensive than for other EPP locations but that could also be because of the timing of the booking - sometimes you get lucky. In any event it isn't outrageous, and the hotel is cheaper than any we've had for an EPP, and looks just as nice too, so .... luck of the draw I guess.

UkIkarus, I really hope you find a better deal!

Sinophilia - are you and R going to join us? That would be great!
