“Great business hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I stayed in this hotel while traveling in Spain for work. As an American, the lighting system for each individual hotel room was a bit confusing (you have to put your hotel room key in a slot in order for the lights to work in each room), but otherwise the room was clean, sleek, and modern. I had a beautiful view and the hotel's location couldn't be beat. The area surrounding the hotel seems safe, and I enjoyed going for a run through the area surrounding the hotel each afternoon after work. The wi-fi worked great, and the breakfast each morning was very good. The fitness room could be slightly updated, as the machines were old, but I was very impressed with this hotel.

I stayed at this hotel because of the good reviews and I'm quite happy. I stayed here for business.
Downsides. This is an old hotel which has been refurbished. The VEEERY slow elevators show the hotel's age though...Also the gym is quite old.
Wifi is paying in the room (as in other AC) which is really a bad point for a 4* hotel and considering the price of the room
Upsides. Location Location Location, you are right in the city center. Good room, bed and bathroom as expected in an AC hotel. We got a room with great views of the harbour. The breakfast buffet was good.
Overall, in spite of some of the drawbacks, this is one of the better hotels I have stayed in in Malaga so if the price is ok, go for it.

Room Tip: ask for a room with sight on the sea, go for a higher room only if you have time to wait for the ele...

Location is excellent. It is close to most attractions in the town. It was a waste as we were only staying in Malaga for less than 12 hours before we headed to Torremolinos. Luckily I managed to jog around the hotel and had a very quick glance at some attractions.

Back to the hotel itself. The room was nice. We were put on 14/F facing the harbor. The view was fantastic. The fitness center was small, but you got all the basics.

Last but not the least, not sure if it's an "AC" tradition, the minibar was free, mine including beer! Ole ~

We spent a week at the Palcio in Malaga - it's very well located close to the City attractions, restaurants and new harbour development. Rooms are modern, clean and most have good views. It's not great for kids though - the small pool is unheated and there is no WiFin in the rooms. Great for a cit break.

Room Tip: choose a room on the upper floors for a great view of the harbour and Med

We spent two nights at the Palacio Hotel in Malaga at the end of a cruise. We were delighted to find what a wonderful position it was in - everything seemed to be within easy walking distance. We had a lovely room on the 9th floor over-looking the sea and with a nice balcony and very quiet. Rooms are very modern with lovely bathrooms.
Breakfast was delicious, with a good selection of hot and cold food - all very fresh. Staff was delightful.
Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Try to obtain a room overlooking the sea - wonderful view.

The hotel is lovely, located across from the Cathedral and at the start of the old center of Malaga. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. We had comfortable pillows for the first time in Spain as well as a free minibar (no alcohol). Our room faced the harbor and boardwalk where cruise ships and the ferry are docked as well as some large private yachts. The view was great but unfortunately noisy during the night. Be sure to go up to the roof top where there is an outdoor pool, a bar, and a terrific view of the cathedral, the old town, and the harbor.

Room Tip: Don't choose a water view if you want a sound sleep.
