We stayed here for 1 night pre-cruise. The location of the hotel is very good and close to all sights, restaurants and shopping. The rooms were nice and ours also had a great view to the city. Rooms were stylishly decorated with a flatscreen TV and a soundsystem. Big plus for complimentary minibar. We slept well, quality of mattresses and... More

Lovely hotel, right next to the cathedral in Malaga. Only 10 mins from the airport. Great location for shopping and eating out. I love staying here!

Stayed here for 3 nights over a weekend. Check in very quick, but not particularly warm. Room was a good size, with modern clean, minimalist lines. This is a modern hotel and not a cosy one. Paid extra for room with Cathedral views and had corner room on 11th floor with views of Cathedral and old castle on the hill.... More

Large hotel with effecient staff situated ideally beside cathedral. Disliked the fact that there was no ramp present as there are 5 steps up to reception, not ideal for travellers with a lot of luggage! Generally there was a staff member to help but this was not always the case. The rooms were quite spacious, with a good sized bathroom... More

Very good experience. Friendly, helpful staff. Room couldn't be faulted, balcony, with a view too. And - surprise, surprise - the rooftop pool / terrace was open; and the pool was very good (if a little chilly in the water). Nice location, close to port, sites and "neighbourhood historic area" for walking and restaurants. One minus, car parking at a... More

We thorougly enjoyed our stay in this delightful hotel. We thought that the provision of a free bar with drinks in the suite was particularly thoughtful. Our only recommenation for improvement is that the soaps are not taken away during cleaning every day: if people have two soaps, leave them there please. From our previous experiences of this hotel, we... More
