Awesome location if you want to visit Malaga's center by foot. (Most of the streets in the old town area are pedestrian anyway). The old saying "you get what you pay for" is totally valid in Carlos V's case, so if you're looking for a 5-star, 4-star, or even a 3-star stay, this is not your hotel. Carlos V is... More

Nice little hotel- close to the Museo Picasso Malaga and other sites in the centre of the old town such as the Alcazaba and the Roman ruins. (We were lucky enough to be there on a Sunday when entrance to everything is free after a certain time- and the people at the entrances all told us to come back a... More

Nice little no frills hotel in the heart of the old part of Malaga perfect for a long weekend. The room was at the back and had no view but as the weather was good we spend most of the time outside Very easy to see the sites, go out in the evening. Just a short walk to the beach... More

As always with an overnight stay in a city I wanted a central location and parking for the hire car. I chose Carlos V because it had both. It is a well run, clean hotel that is excellent value for money and, I think, is better than it's 2 star rating implies. The room was small but more than adequate... More

The hotel staff on the reception desk all spoke good English and were extremely helpful at all times and very polite and friendly. The room was large and very comfortable. and so was the bed. The hotel is just a short walk to and from the Airport bus stop. and all the attractions.

If you are looking for value without compromise on cleanliness or location stay here. Very well positioned in the historic area, everything in walking distance. Staff friendly, rooms clean and maintained. Will definitely recommend and stay again.

Good location. Staff was friendly. Room was good. View of nothing but a wall from the window. Wifi was strong in the room. Walls seemed maybe a little thin at times but nothing extreme. Shower was warm and good pressure. But in my room's shower the little thing that holds the shower head was busted so i had to rig... More

My friends and I got here by chance as the hotel we had previously contacted did not confirm our booking days before our trip. Hotel Carlos V was an almost oblidged choice as it was impossible to find free rooms anywhere. We'd have preferred to find accommodation closer to the beach so we were not totally convinced. It 100% convinced... More

To be honest, when we booked a room in Hotel Carlos V we thought it was somewhere near the historic city - but it's virtually inside it! (which makes getting there with a car a bit tricky - make sure you get instructions from the hotel staff before arriving) Rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable. Overall, an excellent hotel...
