Well run contemporary-style Parador, next to Gibralfaro Castle. All rooms with terrace and view over Malaga. Beautiful walk down to City Center (15 minutes) or bus/taxi Connection. Great place to stay in Malaga

We spent our last night in Spain here. How magical! The loveliest sunset view of the city and sea from our private balcony, flowers still blooming the week before Christmas--it was special beyond words. We had a wonderful meal at the hotel restaurant--a five course tasting menu with three wines for 40 Euros--couldn't be beaten! The bath was the best...

If it wasn't for the excellent staffing in the hotel, cleanliness and attention to the clients we would not have gone there at every opportunity we can. The only drawback is the aeroplane noise but hey one gets used to it. The other excellent hotel is the one at Nerja where we are always welcomed as 'our home'. Pity it's...

The view is incredible. Walked up from old town and needed a drink before the walk back down. This was the perfect pit stop overlooking the city. Had a slight communication issue with the staff - but my fault for poor Spanish.

Indeed, the view on Málaga is unique, Indeed the room was spacious, Indeed the breakfast was gorgeous, BUT When the airco is off, the floor heating is still running, bringing the room at 23°C, and there's no other solution left than sleeping with open windows. And enjoy the neighbour smoking on his balcony and the noise of the city. When...

It is located close to the castle and it isa short walk downstairs to centre. Taxi back is around 6 euro. Very nice view while drinking a wine or beer in your room. We had a very good stay. Rooms are clean, breakfast is overpriced unless you are a used to heavy breakfast
