Top location! - we stayed 4 nights and had a fantastic time, just a short stroll to the many tapas bars, restaurants, shops and sights of Malaga with the beach a 15 minute walk away; the rooftop with swimming pool/ restaurant/ bar is the real jewel in the crown; fantastic views over the port, the city or the Cathedral, which is just next door. We ventured up daily after exploring the city for a cooling dip or after dark for a cocktail. There was a modern flamenco group playing one evening - fantastic!
We had a standard room which was modern, clean, spacious and serviced daily - good aircon.
A couple of things which stopped an excellent score would be; no free wifi in the room (€5 per day) you can get free wifi in the public area but have to ask for a code 3/4 times a day; lack of coat hangers in the room; for us British there is no kettle in the room - we took our own; there was a damp smell in the reception area (not bad) and seemed to get better on the last day?; the lifts were very frustrating, three very small lifts that seemed to have a mind of their own, we waited over 10 minutes one morning - I think they need reprogramming or at least a stern talking too!
A city stay in Malaga is strong competition to Barcelona.More
