Recent guest reviews

what a great hotel this is we booked a normal room, arrived and were upgraded to a one bedroom suite overlooking the square in front of the hotel. nice and clean, great location near Malaga Cathedral, great shops and restaurants locally, walking distance to the cafe's and bars on the port. one nights stay, lovely clean room, cortado in the morning and we were on our way back to work. the hotels restaurant on the top floor, with outside deck is v good, we enjoyed a good lunch, lovely views of the city also.

Very clean and the front desk staff were great. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet. The location of the hotel is the best feature... close to everything. Walk out the front door and within 2 minutes of great restaurants, cafes, la Marina area, and historical sites.

We stayed in AC Hotel in September and found the location perfect, as you were in middle of City centre and short walk to Marina, rooms were excellent as were the staff, roof top pool was also very nice and offered great views as well as excellent cocktails. Would definitely go back

This is a lovely hotel, an appropriate rating of 4 star. Just to let you know I usually stay in the Vincci Selecction Posanda Del Patio and they are the only 5* with outstanding service and stay... The AC is a good second place. Just no where near as good as a personal touch as the Vincci. The hotel is right in the centre which is amazing to get to everything including transport links. Although it is in the centre it's not noisy or too busy where it is. I have a room on the side, overlooking both cathedral and ocean and it was fantastic, it also had a good size balcony with chairs. The facilities in the room are very good, lovely large beds, TV, seating area and large storage. The bathroom is large and comes with a great selection of toiletries and so on. The breakfast had a good selection of both continental and hot food. Fab meat, cheese, tomatoes, bread, sausages, eggs, beans, pastries, cakes, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit and fruit juice. Also coffee (filter and nespresso) and teas. The staff were polite and helpful and did everything we could ask or need. I used both the gym and the bar area while there. The gym is adequate for a full cardio/ weight work out and although not large there are some funky machines that can do multiple weight equipment. The bar had a great selection of drinks and cocktails and the bar men made great cocktails which they clearly put effort in to. We did have a drink on the top terrace during sunset and it was lovely, I'm sure that whole area would be a lot more inviting in the summer as we were there in mid winter! Overall a great stay.

Very nice rooms, nice staff and perfect location with great view. Walking distance to everything. Nice bar at the roof, recommended for drinks- food is ok but there are so many better places for food nearby 😊

We stayed here in the winter months so we was upgraded to a sea view room, what a beautiful room it was. Welcomed to slippers and chocolates too. The staff were very welcoming, and location of the hotel was perfect to see everything in the city. Bed was large and comfy, great shower and large bathroom. Included a kettle, but no tea or coffee? Strange. Would stay there again if in the area.

After getting lost en route we were very happy to hand the car over to valet parking. It is expensive and can handle only smaller vehicles but well worth the cost. Location was central and excellent. The room was clean and pleasant with a small balcony. We had an early departure and it was handled smoothly and efficiently.

Stayed here for 4 days in January and definitely will return. The location between the old town and the port area is perfect. We cannot speak highly enough of the staff member who checked us in. Even though the hotel was at near maximum capacity we were offered a free upgrade to a fabulous room with a balcony overlooking the old town. We spent most of our time out of the hotel but there is a brilliant roof terrace and a bar/restaurant on the ground floor. The location alone means this hotel has to be considered when planning a trip to Malaga.

We stayed here at the weekend and had a fantastic time. We were very lucky with the weather and managed to sit up on the rooftop a few times and enjoy the amazing views. The hotel is modern, clean and friendly with everything you need for a city break. It's in a brilliant location and really easy to walk to all the sights and bars etc. A lovely place in a modern and lively city, highly recommended!

This is a marvellous hotel and it's biggest selling point is it's location. It's almost next door to the cathedral, the main shopping area (Larios) and the old town are very close as is the port area. The airport bus also stops right outside too. We were lucky enough to be upgraded and got a front facing balcony room and the views were amazing. The room was very nice with a huge bed (and a huge tv!). There are two bars, one on the roof with superb views with a restaurant and there's a bar near reception which is stylish yet cozy. The waiters seem a little more friendly in the latter bar so we preferred it there! The bar prices (for beer or wine anyway) were very reasonable for such a nice, upmarket hotel - a rarity. Hotel staff were helpful and friendly too. The only slight negatives were that there was very little in the way vegetarian options on the restaurant menu, it's a shame as we'd liked to have eaten there. Also the lifts take a bit getting used to! You have to pick the floor you want BEFORE getting in. They only fit 6 people in too so can be a little cramped. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Wonderful!
