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...

very nicely situated and cosy hotel. Very well situated to major attractions of Malaga including the beaches and shopping. Rooms are tiny and dark though. No breakfast services but there are a number of cafes across the street. Free internet available

I stayed only one night just after the new year and I think it is good value considering it was about 45 euros for the night. Small but very clean with all the usual stuff you expect from a budget hotel. Location is great though bang in the middle of historic city. ( that also means drunk tourists outside so... More

I stayed here in Sept. 2014 with my wife. The hotel has a great location right in the center of the city. It's about a 5 minute walk from the entrance to the entrance to the Alcazaba but its location is really the only good thing I can say about this hotel. I had originally booked the room for about...

Right in the heart of the historic centre of Malaga. Only stayed for one night and room was perfectly adequate. Grateful for air conditioning as it was very hot in the city. Provided with shampoo, shower gel etc hairdryer, tv and fridge. Beds extremely comfortable had a great nights sleep. Alvoronso on reception was charming and extremely helpful. I had... More
