“great location”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Great central location, huge and very comfortable bed, loved the staff and the decor but the breakfast was a disappointment – a bit tired and poor choice. I’ll happily go back but have breakfast in Bar Central just outside the hotel in the square.

The positive things : right in the historical center and everything within walking distance. For me this is the biggest plus about this hotel. Other positive things : nice pillows and a good bed (which is not always the case in Spain). Make sure you ask at the reception for a double or two single beds as they have both. If you make your choice clear, you'll receive what you've asked for. The rooms are trendy, spotless, not too big, but very good for a city trip and a good "value for money ratio". Breakfast is offered till noon, which is also a plus.
The flipside : the TV is extremely small (19 inch computer screen) and not well placed (on the desk). The safe is rather small (don't bring laptops that are larger than a tablet/ipad as they won't fit in). But the thing they must absolutely work on is the airco. It's a central airco system and even during winter when it was 15 degrees outside, it was extremely hot (and dry air) in the room. You need to sleep with open windows...so make sure you have a room at the back of the hotel. You'll face a wall, but at least you will be able to sleep with an open window....without having the street noise. Overall : good for a city trip, but not for a 7-days of sun holidays

I recently stayed for 3 nights in this hotel, it was booked for me for my birthday so I hadn't read any reviews. I can honestly say the hotel was spot on, friendly staff, clean rooms and I had a beautiful view. It is a perfect spot to enjoy this vibrant city. Would definitely recommend and return!

We chose this hotel because it is as central as you can get to the old city. Accommodation, service, breakfast and (via Easyjet) price were excellent. Only quibbles: the bar drinks were a bit pricey and the non-Spanish TV channels rather limited.

Great location, pleasant room and staff but could not sleep due to the heat. Despite our stay being in the winter the temperature was around 19 degrees and although this hotel advertises air conditioning there was none. We were told only heating was available during the winter months regardless of the weather. Probably would give this hotel a miss next time we are in Malaga.
