I often travel through Malaga on the way to Nerja but this is the first time I have actually stayed in Malaga, I was very surprised how lovely it is.
The hotel has a great location, right beside the cathedral with many bars and shops very close by. I had a room on the 6th floor that overlooked the park and the port, pretty decent view.
Room was of a reasonable size with all of the usual amenities. I had a few issues with my room though, firstly the bed creaked loudly everytime I moved, the noise woke me up a couple of nights when I moved while asleep. There was a problem with my shower, it sprayed water all over the bathroom so the floor looked like there had been a flood! I reported it to reception on the first morning, it was looked at but not fixed. I reported it again on second morning and this time it was fixed but it really shouldn't have taken me reporting it twice. On my second day my room was not cleaned, I had been out all day and returned at around 5pm so plenty of time for the room to be cleaned.
I had breakfast on one morning, there was plenty of choice - but at 33 Euro way too expensive! It turned out to be a very expensive bowl of cereal, glass of orange juice and slice of toast. how the hotel can justify charging 33 Euro for breakfast is beyond me, I feel totally ripped off.
The roof top pool area is small with a few sun beds but offers fabulous views of Malaga.
I would stay in this hotel again but will definitely have breakfast outside of the hotel and save money!
