“Well pleased!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We knew of the splendid central location from earlier Malaga trips, welcoming receptionist gave us the type of room we'd asked for in the special requests. Room was light and spacious with good views from the balcony, from where we could even hear the parrots in paseo del parque. The roof top bar was great with stunning outlook when the sun came out. We'd go back

Room Tip: A high room gives splendid views, more light and reduces traffic noise.

The hotel is very nice, modern and clean. We stayed for one night and overlooked the main street from the 10th floor. It is close to the city center and all the shopping can be done in minutes from the hotel. Te room is spacious, clean and modern. Everything we asked for was already taken care of (non-smoking and feather free). If we have the opportunity we will certainly stay here another time.
The one and only con of the hotel is that during winter time the air-conditioning only works for heating. If you don't like a temperature of 25 plus the only way to cool the room is to open the balcony door and accept the street noise which is present all night.It is a balancing game between noise and temperature.

Loved everything about it-excellent service, spacious room facing water was a delight, rooftop bar with good drinks and easy sitting lounge chairs was just a delight ona cool bright late sunny afternoon. An ideal spot to explore Malaga, and evry easy transportation to airport. Across teh street from water promenade and restaurant/shopping . A hotel with a vibe!

Room Tip: must get a a room or better a terrace facing water

Stayed here in March with my wife and was very impressed with this hotel. Ideally situated for exploring the history of Malaga and the hotel facilities are excellent. A visit to the roof top bar is recommended with great views of the castle and cathedral. Breakfast was very good and the staff were very helpful. Little tip is the "A" bus runs from the airport right to the hotel front door and back and only costs 3 Euros.

Stayed in Malaga this weekend at the AC Hotel Malaga Palacio. Very comfortable and spacious rooms, spotlessly clean. Good buffet breakfast selection. Every member of staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the Port area.

Stayed here for 2 nights in February. Comfortable, clean room with modern furnishings and a wonderful bathroom. Appreciated the free minibar with water, juices and soft drinks. Transportation to and from the airport is very easy. Bus A stops right outside the hotel and runs every 30mins starting at 6am. Walk to the train and main bus station is approx 20 mins or you can get a local bus or taxi.
Great view of the port from the rooms at the front. Lovely park with a large Tourist Information office just across the road. Cathedral, Picasso Museum, Alcazaba, shops and eating places all within easy walking distance.
Front desk staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Front rooms face the park and port and have a great view but are not absolutely quiet as they face t...

I've stayed at the Palacio before - in 2010, prior to it joining the Marriott chain. As in 2010 I had a comfortable stay. This time, I had a comfortable room on the 6th floor, overlooking the main street. It was quiet, clean, and well appointed. There was a little street noise, but nothing significant, and I slept well both nights I was there. Unlike in 2010, there was no inclusive mini-bar, but that's not a big deal. Breakfast was decent - nothing fancy, but enough to get you going. The staff were all friendly and helpful. One afternoon we ate lunch in the restaurant on the roof, and it was excellent. I really like the location of the Palacio, near the water and right in the old town. I'd definitely consider staying there again.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors are likely to have less street noise.
