Location, location, location. On the edge of old town where you can walk to 100's of bars, cafes, restaurants, shopping, etc. Picaso museum, Moore fortress, port likewise within walking distance - literally everything you would desire. Hotel is fairly typical European- rooms are clean and well appointed albeit spartan and compact. Hotel lobby bar provided good, friendly service. Roof top... More

This hotel is a clean comfortable no frills package. The room was adequate for what we wanted, a short stay, somewhere to lay our heads. Very central close to sights, restaurants and bars. We were there for two nights. We caught the sightseeing bus which was very close. Spectacular views from the rooftop bar.

Just off the busy Larios avenue, it is a spotlessly clean hotel, we artived early but the receptionist gladly offered us to wait 10 min and the room was ready, way before the check in time. Good bed and no street noise, everything is fine. The rooftop bar has some pretty spectacular views of old town.

Great location, right in the center. Perfect for walking tour of the city. Comfortable, clean and spacious room. Stayed for New Years Eve celebrations close to hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Go to the roof top for the views. Long wait for the lift due to hotel being full and morning check out.

We have stayed at this hotel on a number of visits to Málaga and returned this time as part of our Golden Wedding celebrations. Originally chose AC Palacio purely by location as it is wonderfully located, a short walk from most of the places one would care to visit, museums, castle, Calle Larios, Muelleuno in the port and much more....

This hotel was a really nice surprise. We knew the location would be good – and so it was. We arrived in a hire car and immediately a member of staff whisked it away to the car park while another looked after our bags. This was doubly helpful since our stay coincided with external road works. The reception staff could... More

The positives, the manager was of great help. Rest of the receptionists not of any help. Otherwise staff seemed ok. Rooms are nice some with good views of the harbour. There are some issues rooms have thin walls, you can easily hear people in next room or in hallway. The 3 elevators are to small and few for that amount... More

Stayed here as part of a package from OVC, very overrated. Our room faced a wall with peeling paint, tried to have it changed but received the usual "we are fully booked" response which was not really true. Good location for cruisers but too overpriced and overrated. It has a nice rooftop pool with great views and that is the... More
