Where to stay in Malaga city?

I have browsed through the hotel section but I still have a question.

We will be in Malaga city one night, spend the next day, then fly out around 5:00 pm. We do not want to stay near the airport. We want a central place where we can walk to bars, shops, and perhaps catch a historical sight or two. Anyway, what area do you suggest? Do you have a particular hotel in mind? (We are of the clean, safe, convenient mindset...otherwise...)

My wife and often spend a night or 2 in Malaga, our hotel of choice is the Ibis Malaga Centro, only a few minutes to old city centre and tapas bars aplenty. The hotel is very comfortable, warm, safe, good price and convenient so fits all your criteria.

I too have stayed at the Ibis Centro and really liked it and the location being a couple-few blocks to calle Larios area. It is a really good hotel for a lower price. I'm sure there are more posh places to stay, maybe a local like Benny will recommend something.

Just across the road from the Ibis is the Salles Malaga Centro - been there twice and found it very comfortable, and within an easy stroll of the old town restaurants and bars; also the Cathedral which is worth a visit

Hotel Atarazanas is very close to the main shopping street and sights. Taxi rank just along the road (Calle Atarazanas). The market, well worth a walk round, just over the road. 5 mins walk other direction to Alameda Centro Train Station for train back to Airport.. Clean and comfortable. Stayed twice at this one and will use again.

we've stayed twice at the NH, just across the river and only a 5 minute walk to the center of town. they have good sized rooms, comfy beds, clean bathroom with fun amenities and THE best breakfast buffet I have seen. lots of choices of all kinds of things. I highly recommend this hotel.

having said that, we might try the AC Palacio next time. hubby loved their lobby and lounge :) either would be a great choice. enjoy!!
