Nice hotel - great location.

Room and bathroom had been modernized - and was really nice.

Free wifi a bonus.

Breakfast and bar good selection and fair prices.

5 mins walk away is the marina - with god selection of bars, restaurants and shops - or head up into the old town for cheap tapas and drinks.

Malaga was busy - clean and trouble free - great long weekend location.

Room Tip: Some guests said their rooms were very small and dark - we had a good room at the front of the hotel

I have just returned from a weekend in Malaga and we stayed in the Don Curro hotel. The location of this hotel is perfect,20 minute taxi ride from the airport, 2 minutes walk from the main shopping area and 10 minutes walk to the train station. The staff in the hotel we really helpful and friendly. Great location I will return... Well done to whoever is responsible for the Christmas lights, amazing and a great buzz all around the streets and perfectly safe to walk around.

Ideal position for daytime sightseeing and evening relaxing in nearby tapas bars. Within easy reach of bus/train stations for trips further afield. Great room, 6th floor, west facing balcony for sunsets. Comfy beds. Good breakfast. Helpful staff. Would highly recommend.

South facing room reasonably high up and the air conditioning was not working - always manana (the day we were leaving) - the impression was they could not care - only stayed two nights and fried both nights - the street below was so noisy at times one had to keep the window shut (mind you even then it was still noisy). I asked for a reduction at reception on checking out because of this and none was even considered. Then there was the wifi - allegedly available throughout the hotel - actually you had to sit on the two person seat in reception or the stairs to reception to avoid restricted access (other half did manage it in the room at 11.30pm one evening suggesting the issue is one of lack of capacity at busier times).

Compare and contrast with Molina Lario, another equally excellently placed hotel, where we stayed in January - understandably fully booked on this occasion - much better, quitter and better service all round.

Malaga is a lovely city and a great destination for a weekend away. The Hotel Don Curro, which was recommended to us by friends, is right in the centre, within easy walking distance from the harbour, and round the corner from shops and many restaurants. Our room was clean and comfortable and the hotel staff were all very helpful

Just back from a weekend break in Malaga . As this was our first time in this part of Spain we were really unsure of traveling from airport to the city . We should not have worried ,short walk from the airport to access the train which was clean , displayed information on where we were ,on time and only cost 2 euros . A short walk again took us to the Don Curro Hotel . Reception staff not very friendly given room number, no pleasantries like enjoy your stay ,we were surprised by this as I had contacted the hotel prior to arrival and replies were prompt , bar / restaurant and housekeeping staff friendly and went out of their way to engage in conversation albeit pigeon English . .Room was exceptionally clean as were all public areas bed linen was changed although we were only on a three night break, bed very comfortable . Bathroom really dated but clean .Not a great variety at breakfast but was well presented and adequate . Location is what sells this hotel very easy access to the port and beach ,shops and places of interest are a few steps away .Would we return to this hotel ..Yes in the hope that staff a bit more pleasant .

Room Tip: we were on middle floor had street view which was ok for a short break , not bothered by any noise...
