Stayed in the Malaga Centro for three nights, partly based on the reviews on here and the price, which was important and very reasonable for what we got
Never been to Malaga before, but would recommend this hotel to anybody as it is very clean, elegant and in a great central location. Staff were friendly and efficient and did not laugh at my Spanish, which is always a bonus!
Booked room only so cannot comment on food or drinks. First room was on the 4th floor, and it was too hot during the first night. After the receptionist explained that the air con was off, only heating on and the heat would rise, she got us another room on the second floor, which was much better. Bathroom was nice and big, with two basins, bath/shower and bidet, plus WC of course, there was a safety deposit box and other freebies, like some miniature toiletries for him and her, which was sweet.
We didn't get charged for the small bottles of the minibar, which surprised us a little as you'd get charged in the UK. Nice bonus. Service was very good - what we asked for we got, but hotel exceeded expectations as we did not expect it to be as elegant. Beds very comfy and a short walk to the old part of town. Just turn left, over the bridge and then right and keep on going. Fabulous city, loved it there.
The previous reviewer recommended the Cafe de la Mota, which we found. I was keen to try Churros con chocolate, but it was packed with locals, so we wandered back to the cafe/bakery on the corner from hotel (turn right). A small friendly place, but no churros! Very frustrating, but I shall try again next time.
Do go to the bodega on Alameda Principal, La Antigua Casa de Guardia. Blink and you miss it but it's a real gem: Established in 1840, they serve Malaga wine (not sherry, let this be stressed ;-) direct from the barrel. Small glasses as well but strong stuff. Also the Malagueta beach is nice, if small. Lovely to sit out by the beach bar for some fried fish. On a clear day, walk up to the Castillo Gibalfaro. Put some non-slippery shoes on and walk all the way up to the top. The views from up there are stunning and well worth the walk. Enjoy Malaga, there are plenty of good tapas bars, people are friendly and have a twinkle in their eye.
All of these are a short distance/nice walk from the hotel, so no need to catch any buses, especially when you are just on a short break and there for the first time. Enjoy!
