Stayed here last night. The hotel has got to be the best location for enjoying everything that malaga has to offer. From a stroll along the port to tapas at mercado merced to dinner at the amazing bodega el pimpi you could not be better situated. The hotel is a no frills value for money experience, rooms clean bed extremely... More

This hotel is located next to the Malaga's cathedral, no breakfast but there are lots of places to eat very nearby. It is in the heart of the old town. The hotel is very comfortable and clean ,receptionists are friendly and available. Recommended !!!

We weren't sure whether to chance a 3 star hotel, but it had better reviews on T.A. than the 4 star ones, so we reserved. We found the hotel very well-situated by the Roman Theatre in Center City, and adequate for our short 2 day stay. We walked everywhere and the hotel was so convenient. The day staff clerk wasn't...

Hotel Carlos V is 2 star according to the sign outside, not 3 star as I thought, and directly opposite the cafe we had our worst meal last year. The rooms, however, were fine. We had 46 and 56 directly above. The top floors give a view of the cathedral whereas lower down they look onto an inner airwell, not... More

I stayed here in May this year and have already booked another stay next year. The Carlos V has no frills, but my room was comfortable and clean and the wifi worked (most of the time!). Breakfast is available from a range of nearby cafes. The hotel is a stone's throw from Malaga's iconic castle and Moorish fortress and just... More

Hotel in a very good location - close to all tourist attractions, port, bars and shops. To the beach - 15 minutes walking. Small modest, very clean room, unfortunately without window view. Nice, very helpfull staff.

Right in the middle of Malaga, close to the Cathedral. Clean silent room, well-equiped bathroom. Pleasant staff speaking good English. Very good priced. No breakfast but there are plenty of good cafés around.

Title says it all, this hotel is perfect for a stay in Malaga. It's not far (about 3 minutes) from a bus stop which is serviced from the airport/train station/bus station, and slap bang in the middle of the historical centre, just round the corner from the cathedral. Rooms aren't huge but bathroom was very impressive and beds were comfy.... More

A very nice, centrally located hotel, in the middle of Malaga. A stones throw from the cathedral. Small but adequate room but a nice new bathroom with hair- drier and there was a small fridge in the room. Air conditioning worked well and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

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
