“Among city centre and harbor. Nice roof top bar view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Location, the hotel is located closely too the city center and harbor.
A tremendous view from the top floor where a small pool and bar is for the guests pleasure on hot days. Following the sunset while enjoying an evening drink with friends, lovely.

Room. My room was at a decent size, with a comfy bed, as I am used from the Marriott chain providing a great source recharging my batteries. The bath was clean and good standard. I also enjoyed my personal balcony, allowing breezing fresh air, or enjoying and relaxing after a good working day by myself.

Breakfast, above the Spanish average breakfast offering, within a global breakfast offering. If it is included into the rate, definitely worthwhile to pick it up and getting the energy source for a old day ahead.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights and you really can not beat the location! The rooms are larger than expected for south of Spain and the service from the front desk staff was warm and friendly. We did not have a safe in the room but you can ask the front desk to hold your valuables. The cathedral is right next to you, Alcazaba a block away and the beach is 10 minute walk away as well. The local train station is another 10 minute walk and you can catch a local train there to get you to the other beaches as the beach is Malaga is not what you see in the postcards. You should try to head about 10 km outside of the busy Malaga port if you want clear water and pretty beaches. the train also stops at the airport for less than €5 round trip.

Room Tip: Higher floors come with a better view but are directly below the rooftop pool hosting evening events...

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and had a lovely stay. Firstly is the good location on the harbour front and next to the cathedral. Room was a good size, comfortable bed all the amenities required for a nice stay and our balcony was at the side of the property, in one direction views of the harbour other direction views of the cathedral and square.
After 1 night in the room we had returned from a days sightseeing to find we couldn't access our room. We went to reception to find our room had flooded along with others due to a plumbing problem. We were informed all our belongings had been moved and we were ugraded to a suite for the remainder of our stay. The suite was excellent, large living area sofa,chairs,desk, tv etc with views of the harbour, large bedroom with massive bed which was very comfortable and large bathroom with all the extras robes,slippers etc. As it was a suite these come with complimentry mini bar which I thought was a nice little touch soft drinks/beer. My only issue is no free wifi in rooms but there is free wifi in the lounge/reception area and breakfast room.
Breakfast was nice, I found it to have ample choices and a couple of hot options and staff were always prompt to fill up your coffee.
The property has a rooftop pool which has great views of the surrounding area.
All staff were helpful and pleasant and I would definitly stay here again.

I have stayed in this hotel twice now and would recommend it. Although a bit corporate in style the rooms are nice (especially if you get a sea view) and the roof top pool is great for cooling off. There is free wifi in the lobby area and, in certain parts of the pool area if you position yourself by the doors! My one criticism would be that the reception area staff seem disorganised and not exactly willing to put themselves out to help. Other than that, it's a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Get one on a high floor with a balcony and sea view. Mine was room 1112.

We loved this hotel.
It's really well situated, next to harbour, shops and the historical ruins.
Beach is slightly further away but still an enjoyable walk.
Hotel offers tea/coffee making facilities at an additional cost of €11 per night. Fridge was well stocked and reasonably priced. Wifi was available at an extra cost but lounge is free and it was adequate to use for daily emails.
Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very nice and plentiful at any time during the 7-11 slot.
Rooms were clean and great maid service.
We would definately be staying here again - infact all ready planning another trip!

I stayed at the hotel for five nights and was quite happy with the stay. The room was of a good size and nice, but it would have been nice to have a coffee maker or boiler in the room which I think is standard in most hotels. The breakfast buffet was ok, but a with rather limited options. however, all in all I was satisfied with the hotel.

Just got back from 4 nights at this hotel, and had a fabulous break. The service from reception through to waiting staff was all excellent, they couldn't do enough for you. The whole building was very clean, and our room was great. Loved the views from the rooftop pool, and the sun loungers were so comfy too. Beds a little on the hard side for us, and would have liked a double not twin. The gym although spotlessly clean, was not well equipt and the exercise equipment needs a service. Breakfast was ok, not fab, draught lager to die for! More of a business use hotel, wouldn't say suitable for children. Will definitely book again of we returned to Malaga, but, perhaps give the breakfast a miss and eat outside.

Room Tip: Ask for from or side front view, otherwise you be facing the back of the hotel.
