We stayed in the Carlos V for 2 nights, which happened to coincide with the Malaga “Feria” (holiday), which lasts for 2 weeks in August, and is very, very busy, but great fun. Although previous travellers have mentioned what great value for money the hotel is, during these 2 weeks it is not. We paid Euros 99 per night for a small, basic room with no view, no tea/coffee-making facilities, no room safe, and no fridge. To it’s advantage it did have a decent bathroom.
Travellers, be warned about the hotel’s parking facility (which costs another Euros 11.80 per day). The u-turn which has to be negotiated down the ramp is very, very tight, and anything larger than a compact car will not make it. This is something I feel the hotel should have warned us about. We did manage to make it (in a compact car), but due to the situation of 2 other parked cars right at the u-turn, it took about a 7-point turn to do so.
As mentioned, the location of the hotel is excellent, and the room clean (although the bedcover had seen better days, sporting a number of cigarette burns). At 50 - 60 Euros I would say it was decent value for money, but at 99 Euros it wasn’t. And for the final weekend of the festival, when the hotel were hiking their prices to Euros 140 per night, then it is daylight robbery. Not impressed......
