We returned to the Parador Gibralfaro on the last night of a short trip to Andalucia and the views were still as magnificent as we remembered. We had a drink in the bar on arrival and it was pleasant. The rooms were pretty standard and a little faded but more than adequate for a quick overnight stay in Malaga. The... More

We enjoyed 3 nights at the hotel. It's an older property and constrained by it's original construction. The rooms are simple and identical - think Holiday Inn with tile floors and updated bathrooms. The restaurant was great, both for dinners and breakfast. We were a party of 7 and managed to sample most of the key items on the menu.

The Parador de Malaga Gibralfaro is set above the city at the level of the top of the Castle Gibralfaro. I looked at it from the castle three years ago and decided that we should stay here at our first opportunity. A very good choice. The view is spectacular, the place has a rustic charm. Everything is spacious. Nice room... More

The views are stunning and worth a visit just for these both day and night. The rooms are or were good but now a little dated and tired. Take a balcony room if you can or go to the pool area and look out over the best views. You can do this from the downstairs bar also The lonely planet... More

Booked here as we needed a base in Malaga for a few days, we ended up staying and extra day. Great location and calm at the end of a busy day, you've also got a pool area to catch some winter sun. The location is great you can stroll downhill into the city at catch a taxi back for €5... More

As is mentioned by many, the views are wonderful, especially in the evening when the lights come on.we spent a balmy February even on sitting on the balcony of our large room enjoying the warmth and the view . The walk down is fine, although I do acknowledge that it would be slippery in the wet, but it is well... More

If it's a view you are after this is a great place but that's it. After 4 days in Granada at the Hospes Palacio de los Patos luxury hotel, this was like arriving at a B&B. There is a bar but no one to serve you. The staff are indifferent to guests. The rooms are basic, The mini bar non-existent,... More

Fabulous view of Malaga harbour, city and the bull ring. We had a comfortable room with balcony, with breakfast buffet included. Unlike another review, we had a first class dinner in the restaurant, the waiter was very helpful and recommended a local wine. This is not your average hotel...it is something a little special, and would suit someone booking a... More

We spent two wonderful nights at the Parador de Malaga Giralfaro. We had a view of the Malaga Harbor far below. When we met our Spanish friends we walked down a wonderful stair case to the city below. The room was very comfortable with a breakfast buffet included in the hotel charge and a very delicious breakfast it was.

Stayed here for one night in December before flying home after visiting Gibraltar for a friends wedding. Although we have flown into Malaga numerous times, we have never visited the city itself. This time we decided to stay one night so that we can see Malaga itself. We chose the Parador and we were not disappointed with our choice of... More
