The location and the rooftop made this hotel. If those things are important, best hotel in Malaga. Accommodations, facilities and service were mediocre.. Fine, but not outstanding. That said, we'd probably stay here again given the location and rooftop. Views are incredible, ask for ocean facing room. Rooftop had restaurant, bar, and pool. Perfect for relaxing! Beach, Boardwalk and shops... More

This hotel is well situated in the centre. The lift shafts rise through the centre and rooms near the lifts are noisey. Avoid these rooms and select a balcony room overlooking the port or the cathedral and on a corner. There is a pool on the roof top. The sun beds were taken all day by groups partying and drinks...

I found hotel relatively expensive at close to €150k for one night however this could be the result of our company travel agent not always being the most competitive!!! Also slightly inconvenient since there is considerable construction work going on across the street which happened to coincide with maintenance works of the elevators, leading to important delay in lobby in...

Stayed here on business for a couple nights. Room was comfortable and clean with great views of the harbour. Rooftop terrace was brilliant for some evening drinks. Breakfast, though it had to be booked separately and not particularly economical, was plentiful and really good with a selection of hot food, nespresso coffee, pastries and anything else any good breakfast would...

Stayed here twice now and both times haven't been disappointed. Great views from rooftop pool/bar. Rooms are comfortable clean and tidy. Staff helpful and friendly. Nice breakfast buffet. Great location close to all the cafes, bars and restaurants.

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
