This is one of the better hotels in Malaga, but it was slightly less value for money than the 4 star rating would let you expect. Ideal location very near the harbour, next to the cathedral and close to the castle. Breakfast is superb and well laid out. The rooms are good and more than acceptable but not entirely up... More

1- no coffee in rooms. Have to pay room service or get the buffet. 2-major elavator problems. 3 elavators one of which never opened once they said work was being done but nobody was working it my whole stay. Elavators don't have a light or buzzer to tell u when a elavator has arrived. It doesn't sound like a big... More

A balcony over the port of Malaga with parrots and swifts flying past gives a nice place to sit away from the bustle of down-town Malaga so it is worth asking for a high room. Ongoing work on the lifts meant that we did have to plan a tactical approach to getting to and from our room as the whole... More

Few steps away from the beach, where the morning run was so enjoyable. Few steps away from the old city and good restaurants and shopping! Cathedral at the back of the hotel, Picasso museum in walking distance as well as the market hall. The roof-top was very good and the restaurant can be recommended! Nothing to complain.

This hotel is in a fantastic location within a stones throw of the many bars, cafes and harbour. The views from our room over the harbour were fantastic. The rooms were clean, comfortable and modern. The roof top pool area was a fantastic place to hang out with friends while sipping cocktails and taking in the views. Our only criticisms... More

I agree with Nigel about the hotel and staff. It's a very modern decore and rooms. Great roof-top bar and pool with live music on some weekends. The elevators were slow and not all working, which was inconvenient. Be sure to get a room with a view of the harbor. It's fascinating to see the cruise ships and large pleasure... More

Didn't stay at the hotel but went for a few sun down drinks on the roof bar. Fantastic views of the cathedral and city and a nice pool also. Service a little hard to get but friendly when you do. White wine by the glass was good and some nice nibbles - olives and then a bowl of sweets which... More

Friendly staff and excellent rooms really make this hotel a pleasure to stay with. Rooms are very good quality for this price point, and were exceptionally clean and well-appointed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good - above average for a hotel at this price-point. The rooftop has a good quality pool and a bar, with very friendly... More

Can't beat the location right in the middle of everything. Nice room with balcony and good AC. Elevators are a problem but they do have a third which is being fixed! Our biggest issue was lack of sun beds at the pool especially when they had an area reserved! Surely as hotel guests we are entitled to the pool area!... More
