    Great Hotel


    Located between the Cathedral and the Paseo del Parque, combined with its spectacular views of the marina, make it the most representative hotel in Malaga. Ideal for business trips or simply to enjoy the wide range of recreational and cultural activities on the Costa del Sol.

    Está situado entre la Catedral y el Paseo del Parque y lo completa las vistas de la plaza de la marina. Es el hotel mas conocido en Málaga y es ideal para viajes de negocios entre semana y para viajes de familia los fines de semana.

    Unique Quality: Enjoy the pool on the roof

  • jaded glory but great swimming pool


    We popped in and they had a room. Fantastic location and views but the hotel could do with an update. The "groocy" decor is now faded. Still it was fantastic to stay in that location during the feria!

    Malaga Palacio


    In the very center of Malaga, just where the Cathedral is, is the hotel where Toreros and Sportmen goes when they come to Malaga. It is also in front the port of Malaga, at the begining of El Parque (the park). I have not been here because I live here, but well it have been for many years the only good hotel in Malaga.

    Where to stay in Malaga


    Having won a stay in this hotel in a competition (yes, it does happen!) I have to say that I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quality hotel in Malaga. The entrance leads into a classic Spanish style lounge area decorated with panelled wood and marble while the choice and quality of the breakfast is of the highest order. The room was very comfortable and air-conditioned.

    Unique Quality: Superb location in Malaga's historical centre between the cathedral and Paseo del Parque, sea views from the front.

    Directions: nearby the cathedral

More about AC Malaga Palacio Hotel

Fabulous pre Christmas break

by A TripAdvisor Member

My friend and I stayed at AC Malaga Palcio Hotel for three nights. The suite we had was huge with fabulous views across the harbour and the cathedral to the side. The Christmas lights in Malaga are absolutely fabulous.

The sitting room was comfortable and very welcoming after a day sightseeing. The whole place was very clean. The staff at reception were warm and friendly and the service in the bar was good even if the price of drinks a little expensive but you did get a very good measure of brandy.

I would certainly stay there again at this time of year as we got a very good deal on the room and it was certainly value for money.

Backache Stay

by TripAdvisor Member quietbreeze

We chose the hotel based on location and the reviews we had read regarding the simplicity of AC Hotels.
True to its word the location was excellent. The hotel was okay for a quick stay. We found the restaurant staff very abrupt and not friendly.
The breakfast was good value for money; however
dinner was lacking in quality for the price.
The most disappointing feature were the beds.
The mattress was so uncomfortable and hard we
had a backache each morning on our three
day stay. It was truly a disappointment and
we did not change because all the rooms were
similar. The staff were helpful but in a
Spanish way.....very curt and quick with information.
I would only recommend this hotel for a quick stay.

Great Location, just a few steps to the centre of Malaga

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed for three nights, Sunday to Wednesday, February 2006. They had noted our request for a twin room with a view, non-smoking. They apologised that the rooms with the best view had king-size beds. We asked to see the twin-bedded and it was no problem - 13th floor on the corner with a picture window on two sides, lovely views over the city, facing the cathedral. The room was spacious, with a balcony and marble bathroom with power shower, bidet and great fittings. Toiletries were replenished daily and extra blankets were provided when requested. Breakfast was buffet style with lots of choice, from cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit, cheeses, meats and various pastries, choice of full cream, low fat or soya milk. We didnt eat in the restaurant as there were lots of great places nearby - would recommend a small restaurant Gorki, eat outdoors, great menu choices, around 8 or 9 euros for mains. The hotel pool was closed (only open summer months) and the leisure centre was closed when we visited on Sunday. The free mini-bar was appreciated - water, soft drinks and beer. Taxi costs around 15 euros to the airport for 2, including 2 suitcases, I think its slightly less on weekdays, but there is a taxi rank literally outside the hotel. A word of advice - Malaga closes down completely and seems to sleep on Sundays so you will have difficulty in finding a restaurant open, particularly if there's a football match on! Touristy things were also closed on Sunday and some on Monday, so check before you go. Plenty to see and do - shopping, the market, ancient sites and buildings and good food. We hope to return and would definitely stay at the same hotel. Shop around for rates - we got 94 euros for Sunday, 124 euros Monday and Tuesday (incl breakfast) through eBookers:)

Convenient and modern

by TripAdvisor Member rialeb

We stayed in this hotel in April. We weren't on an executive floor, and as such didn't have any slippers or bathrobe. The free mini bar was appreciated (a range of soft drinks, and a bottle of beer).

The rooms were clean (although the net curtains were in need of a wash). We had a room with a balcony with a view on the port (and the construction that is taking place there). With the window open there is a lot of noise from the traffic, but with the windows shut it is quite peaceful, although we were occasionally disturbed by the toilet flushing in neighbouring rooms.

The buffet breakfast was very good, and is available until noon on weekends. All the staff (except one exceptionally grumpy receptionist) were very friendly.

The hotel is conveniently situated next to the cathedral, with shops and restaurants, bars and museums a short walk away. We would stay in this hotel again.

Great Location, Beautiful hotel!

by TripAdvisor Member Tripamaniac

We found that the AC Palacio to be very centrally located to just about everything! Shopping, restaurants, cultural, historical and arts. This is a gorgeous hotel while in Malaga. The amenities were quite sufficient and we enjoyed it very much. You can walk to just about everything while staying here!
