“Good location”
Reviewed 8 January 2014 via mobile

My husband and me paid £90 for one night room only, which I thought was a bit expensive. The reception staff were helpful. We initially loved the accommodation, consisting of a good sized bedroom and bathroom which was nicely decorated. However we were disappointed that there was no hot drink maker, clock or tissues and could find no english speaking channel on the old TV. Coffee machines are placed in superior rooms only apparently! There was a generous supply of toilletries and shaving equipment etc, and a bidet but we had problems with the shower. There was a rooftop spa and small sunbathing area and a bar which we did not have time to visit. We had a small balcony which overlooked the street.
We didn't receive a complimentary drink!
We liked Malaga and the hotel is very conveniently located for the beach, shops, eateries, tourist sites, docks and public transport. The buses have free wifi and fare to the airport is €3! The Malaga airport experience was horrible. The air conditioning seemed non-existant and we were standing in a queue at the gate for over 30 minutes.

This hotel is very well located. There are a number of restaurants, banks, and convenience stores just a few steps from the hotel and the beach is a 4-5 minute walk if that. The main attractions of Malaga are a quick 10 minute walk across the beautiful park. Many of the rooms have excellent views of the Alcazaba, Castillo, and Bull Ring.

The hotel rooms are a bit small by American standards and the bed was too firm for my taste. Wi-Fi worked well with a few glitches and TV stations include Spanish, German, and one English (BBC News) station.

The restaurant in house was quite good and reasonably priced with superb service. The roof top deck provides stunning views of the city.

Parking is available around the corner, under the bull ring but I would check with the hotel about possible special rates. The regular rates at Parking Cervantes were fairly high.

Overall an excellent value, though the hotel is definitely in need of a facelift.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the Alcazaba. Anything above the 5th floor should provide stunning views day a...

At first glance we though we chose the worst hotel- no parking, hard to find place to leave the car and get to the reception with luggage. The hotel itself average a bit old fashioned. Next day morning however we realised it was a perfect place for sightseeing in Malaga, with very good breakfast.

Hotel is disapointing the the first sight - no parking space; very, very small lobby, reception service poor, rooms require refurbishing. But after one day and city tour You can see that hotel is not such bad: close to the beach and shopping area, pleaced at trhe most beautiful park in Malaga, closest hotel to castle hill, nice restaurant (Los Delphinos) in the neihghbourhood.
I think that it is really good choice in Malaga.

Very friendly and helpful staff, nice room, good bathroom. Parking is an issue but the hotel arranged for a discount at a local underground car park (€18 p.d).
Lots of cafés and bars in the area.
Good breakfast.
Thanks again to the staff for all your help!

Stayed one night early November. Quick and friendly at reception. Had asked for a quiet room and were allocated one overlooking the bullring which was indeed quiet. Very adequate size and excellent bed and bathroom, nicely clean. Arrived quite late, very good vegetarian salad in the restaurant. Pleasant walk round the port area after meal and before bed. After an excellent breakfast walked round the castle and alcazaba just up from the hotel next morning , lunch at the hotel then taxi to car hire. Nothing to fault it for a short stay apart from lack of tea-making facility in the room, but this seems quite typical in this area.

Room Tip: Quiet at the back overlooking the bullring.
