Excellent location. Stunning rooftop pool area although the shortage of sunbeds and space is a bit of a let down. Staff are a bit surly without the usual Spanish friendliness or Marriott professionalism.

We spent one night in the Malaga Palacio in October, our only regret is that it wasn't longer, an excellent hotel, slap bang in the middle of the city. Easy to get to, we were greeted by a friendly valet, who parked our car for us and dropped it back off at the door just when we needed it. An... More

For a hotel located right where you want to be to see the sites of Malaga, you can't beat this location. It overlooks the cruise terminal and port, is right next to the cathedral and a short walk to the Alcazaba. However, the rooms are average and, frankly, it is clear that the hotel does not need to really service... More

You cannot beat the location of this hotel. It is in between the cathedral and the Mediterranean Sea! I stayed here twice in the space of two weeks and both visits I had extraordinary views and I was on both sides of the hotel! You can walk to the beach, the cathedral, shopping areas, and if you are ambitious to... More

If you have finished your vacation and want to stay somewhere comfortable, quite and has top notch customer service, stay here. Spend the extra Euros and stay on an upper floor with views of the cathedral. We stayed on the 14th floor and looked out upon the most beautiful view of the city. One floor up was an incredible restaurant,... More

Stunning views at sunset of the city. Although we did not stay at hotel, we visited the top floor outdoor pool bar a few times for a sundowner! Great location at port but also close to the Cathedral & lots of the cities tapas bars/ restaurants. See photos.

You can't really go wrong with this hotel. The location is amazing. You're on the edge of the old town, the harbour and the beach. You're walking distance from the train station where you get the airport train to. Rooms are spacious and modern. Breakfast has a good selection. The rooftop bar and pool is a real treat. Staff in...
