“great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Booked this hotel through booking.com for 4 of us at a very reasonable rate for a city hotel. Reviews were good but in my experience that can sometimes be deceptive. However the hotel is fabulously located within walking distance of all the interesting sights of malaga and adjacent to very good restaurants and the main shopping area. The hotel itself provided us with a very large family room - which is in fact two seperate bedrooms divided by the bathroom area, anyway it was very big and very clean. The minibar was very good value for a hotel and the breakfast were quite good - lot's of interesting little pastries provided along with the usual plastic meats and cereals and a hot option of scrambled eggs and mini frankfurter type sausages. The staff were very efficient but not the friendliest we have encountered, but how and ever with the location you are not going to spend all that much time in hotel. Can't fault cleaning staff who came every day and left the room spotless. Would stay again and would recommend.

Room Tip: be mindful of asking advice from reception staff - we asked for directions to car museum which weren...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Just randomly picked this hotel when had an unexpected three day stay in Malaga. Location is perfect, next to the cathedral and near all of the quaint roads, alleyways and lanes with numerous tapas bars that make Malaga so appealing. The reception staff could be a little more receptive and the breakfast was not my cup of tea. However, the room was spacious and clean and had a sit out balcony. The price was extremely good for the location and free WiFi was a bonus. I would definitely recommend a stay at this hotel, and would not hesitate to visit again.

Room Tip: 7th floor had great views from balcony

I thought the location was superb, from our window we had a stunning view of the cathedral. The breakfast was nice. Its quite a good hotel really let down by the worse beds ever! I just thought the bed itself too low with a thin mattress and the most unappealing bedlinen. If they sorted out the beds I would come back here! :). Aside from that admittedly important detail this hotel exceeded my expectations in almost every other respect. Pleasant and helpful staff, excellent location, very cheap.

Staying at Don Curro, you have the narrow streets of the old and charming part of Malaga at your very feet - hence a perfect starting point for "doing" Malaga. Friendly staff, clean rooms and a very nice breakfast buffet. Inexpencive as well, another bonus...

Room Tip: It's a quiet area at night, so no worries about which rooms to choose....

The hotel is very well located. It is right in the centre of the old town, close to the recently revamped port area and within a few minutes' walk of the main bus lines. Indeed the airport bus stops about three minutes' walk from the hotel. There are lots and lots of restaurants close by, many of which offer really good quality food at reasonable prices. There is also a huge selection of bars and cafes within a few minutes walk. The room we stayed in (no 405) was elegant, pretty big, spotlessly clean and had a decent sized balcony. The other rooms on the same floor also looked to be of a good size but had no balconies. However, from reading other peoples' comments, I'm aware that not all rooms are as large as this. Breakfast is included in the price and, despite other peoples' comments, we felt that this was of a good quality. There was a fair selection of food on offer - lots of different types of rolls and breads, scrambled eggs, bacon and chipolatta sausages together with a couple of types of cheese and cheapish ham. The inclusion of breakfast in the price is a big plus - most other hotels, as far as I can see, charge extra for breakfast and some of the sums I've seen quoted are really quite considerable. The staff, too, we found to be extremely polite and very helpful.


On the less positive side, sometimes at breakfast there aren't enough tables for everyone and there can be a short wait. The hotel too can be a bit noisy at night - it's situated in the city centre and refuse collection lorries often call in the street opposite during the early hours of the morning. Also soundproofing isn't great - voices of people in the corridors carry a fair distance. These comments need to be kept in context, however. It's a city centre hotel and no city centre is quiet at night. Also the price the hotel charges is very, very reasonable and you can't expect perfection for that amount of money. Also, in my opinion, the good aspects of this hotel far outweigh the less positive. I'd happily recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: When you book, ask for a room with a balcony.
