Don Curro Hotel
Ranked #30 of 89 Hotels in Malaga
Reviewed 8 November 2012

I have been to almost every corner of this world and I booked this hotel for its location to travel with my elderly parents. I prefer a more local experience and the Don Curro delivered in every
aspect.

It has a fabulous location close to the Cathedral, great restaurants and tapas bars. The newly renovated harbour is within walking distance as well. The room was large and had a balcony.
We hope to return to Malaga just so we can revisit the Don Curro.

For the money paid this a great clean hotel right in the heart of Malaga city with all shopping, cathedral, Port etc.. pretty much on the doorstep, I had looked at and mulled over many options based on the reviews including the NH Malaga, AC Palacio, Molina Larios etc. (all double the price of the Don Curro!).. But settled on the Don Curro for the following factors 1. The price 2. The location 3. Breakfast included with the online price! Skip out of the hotel and you’re right on the main shopping street Calle Marques de Larios, Ten minute’s walk to the Port area which you must visit as there’s more shops and plenty restaurants down there and 10 minutes further on you’ll come to the beach. Nice clean rooms with LCD TV, Although, The british channels are very limited BBC world news, A fridge to put the supermarket beers in, Breakfast is a fairly simple continental affair with breads, meats, cheeses, cereals, fruit, yoghurts and a couple of hot options but you’ll certainly not struggle to fill up and served up until about 11ish, For a 3* star hotel right in Malaga city centre this is fantastic value and I would certainly recommend it!!

Booked this hotel through booking.com for 4 of us at a very reasonable rate for a city hotel. Reviews were good but in my experience that can sometimes be deceptive. However the hotel is fabulously located within walking distance of all the interesting sights of malaga and adjacent to very good restaurants and the main shopping area. The hotel itself provided us with a very large family room - which is in fact two seperate bedrooms divided by the bathroom area, anyway it was very big and very clean. The minibar was very good value for a hotel and the breakfast were quite good - lot's of interesting little pastries provided along with the usual plastic meats and cereals and a hot option of scrambled eggs and mini frankfurter type sausages. The staff were very efficient but not the friendliest we have encountered, but how and ever with the location you are not going to spend all that much time in hotel. Can't fault cleaning staff who came every day and left the room spotless. Would stay again and would recommend.

Room Tip: be mindful of asking advice from reception staff - we asked for directions to car museum which weren...

Just randomly picked this hotel when had an unexpected three day stay in Malaga. Location is perfect, next to the cathedral and near all of the quaint roads, alleyways and lanes with numerous tapas bars that make Malaga so appealing. The reception staff could be a little more receptive and the breakfast was not my cup of tea. However, the room was spacious and clean and had a sit out balcony. The price was extremely good for the location and free WiFi was a bonus. I would definitely recommend a stay at this hotel, and would not hesitate to visit again.

Room Tip: 7th floor had great views from balcony

I thought the location was superb, from our window we had a stunning view of the cathedral. The breakfast was nice. Its quite a good hotel really let down by the worse beds ever! I just thought the bed itself too low with a thin mattress and the most unappealing bedlinen. If they sorted out the beds I would come back here! :). Aside from that admittedly important detail this hotel exceeded my expectations in almost every other respect. Pleasant and helpful staff, excellent location, very cheap.
