"Fantastic views and comfortable rooms!"
The Parador is set high on a hill overlooking the city in a beautiful location. The rooms were very nice with modern bathrooms, two twin beds pushed together, a small sofa and chair and a nice balcony. The pool was smaller than it looks in the pictures, but very clean and a nice place to cool down. We found the prices at the restaurant to be very expensive, but the café was reasonable and had the same great views. While enjoying cocktails at the café we were treated with a performance from a Spanish guitar player at sunset - amazing! I found the staff to be helpful enough in explaining the bus route (there is a stop right outside the gate to the hotel) and printing for us when needed. We ended up buying a day pass for the Hop On/Hop Off City Tour Bus and there was a stop at the castle, which was convenient. Unknowingly, we had booked our trip to Malaga during the Feria, and we were very happy to be away from the extremely busy city center for our evenings. We would definitely stay there again if returning to Malaga.

"Nice hotel with beautiful views"
This parador overlooks Malaga and the port. It is not in the city center and is 20 minutes walk to downtown Malaga. But there is a bus (bus no. 35) that goes from the parador to different locations in Malaga. So although the parador is not centrally located, it offers magnificent views and a quiet and peaceful surrounding. I highly recommend this parador.

"One night (alas) stop in Malaga"
We had a balcony room that was fine if not a little old fashioned. We wanted a double bed but got two side-b- side singles. The bathroom is very nice and modern. All of the Parador hotels are old converted buildings like castles and monasteries which gives them an interesting ambience. The views from the Malaga Parador are truly amazing from the harbor to the bullring to the cathedral and are well worth the cost of the room.

"Magnificent view over Malaga"
The position of this hotel situated right at the top of a hill, next to the Castle, overlooking the harbour is fabulous, especially at night when the lights look brilliant. The breakfasts were very good with plenty of choice and we ate in the restaurant each evening. The food was very good and well presented and the staff were helpful and attentive. We had a large room with a balcony overlooking the harbour.

"Good exterior, not so great rooms"
Nice hotel and fantastic location on top of the hill. The best part was the rooftop pool with great views out. The "double" room we booked had 2 single beds and a fold out sofa bed that was incredibly uncomfortable. Room was quite dated and not the most clean, I was expecting a lot more luxury at the price we paid.

My wife and I spent a very pleasant 5 days relaxing in Malaga. The hotel staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful, We were lucky with the weather which gave us plenty of opportunity to explore Malaga and then relax as we enjoyed tapas and a drink in the sunshine. The views from the hotel over the city are spectacular by day and night.We shall be back.

"A view does not make a hotel 4 star hotel"
There is no arguing that the view is fabulous but away from the view things were very disppointing. As previous reviewers have said the hotel staff are unfriendly to the point of being dismissive. The man who served at breakfast was polite but other than that no one will have even realised we stayed. No one so much as lifted their head when we passed through reception. Surely this is not how a 4 star hotel should be. Our room was large and clean with a lovely bathroom but the furnishings were dated and lacked style. Breakfast was adequate but thats all you can say about it. We had just come from the NH hotel in Cordoba where breakfast was amazing so it was very disappointing. It was too cold for us to use the pool but the pool and surrounding area is a lot smaller that the online photos make out. The position of the hotel needs to be considered - there is no nipping back to your hotel before going out for tea unless you take a taxi or have a hard 20 minute uphill walk from town. If this had been a 2 or 3 star hotel it would be ok but we were expecting a lot more. We paid more money than for other hotels because we thought we were going to get something special.

"Great location but hotel could be better."
The Hotel is located high above the city next to the Castillo, and we were looking forward to a lovely room with a balcony and a lovely view over the city. The first room we were given was really disappointing, the view was mainly of the hotel's service road. We asked for something better and were given a fourth floor room which had a great view of the city, but only if you were standing on the balcony - if you sat on the balcony you were too low to see over the parapet! We should have asked for yet another room change, but the reception person was not at all welcoming and borderline hostile when we asked for the first change. Overall it was OK but not nearly as good as we had hoped for in a Parador, and the staff (with a few exceptions) were rather unfriendly and unhelpful. I couldn't say we felt like valued guests!

"nice hotel with great views of Malaga"
comfortable rooms, with balcony and lovely views of Malaga and the port from our rooms. The setting is lovely, quiet and it is only a few minutes in a taxi to the centre of Malaga old town. The barman was just lovely, chatty without being intrusive and helpful with drink suggestions. However I doubt the reception staff could have cared less if we were there or not. No info on check in about the hotel, breakfast time, the surrounding area....nothing. And they didn't want to spend any time helping us later when we approached the desk...and its not because they were busy! Nice hotel, nice surroundings out of town but lacking a certain something that could make it great.

"Parador Malaga Gibralfaro mit Hafenblick"
Als Höhepunkt unserer Reise durch Andalusien ist dieses Parador auf historischer Höhe von Malaga schon ein herrliches Ziel. Allein die Lage ist außergewöhnlich. Man sollte schon zwei Nächte bleiben , um sich entsprechend an historischen Stätten umzuschauen. Der Blick vom Balkon über den Hafen ist klasse. Der kleine Pool auf dem Dach ist wunderschön mit Aussicht. Das Restaurant im Haus läd zur Entspannung ein und man findet sicher etwas Schmackhaftes, was aber auch seinen Preis hat.

部屋は広くてかわいらしく、掃除も行き届いていて快適に過ごせました。 緑が多いせいか、小さな蟻が入り込んでいました。個人的には問題ないですが、虫が苦手な方には辛いかもしれません。 屋上のプールも小さいですが楽しかったです。マラガの街が一望できます。 レストランのタパスセットが最高においしかったです。 高台にあるので、街まで出るのは一苦労です。 夕食に出るときは歩きましたが、酔っ払ってしまうと歩く気になれずタクシーで帰りました。

概ね満足。但し電源のプラグ変換ユニットが外出から戻ると無くなっており、ハウスキーピング時誤って持ち去られたものと想像する。紛失の事実をフロントに報告し対処を依頼すると、そんな事はあり得ないの一点張り。最終的にハウスキーピングの責任者をよこし、室内を探したが当然見つからず、ランドリー他を探しその結果をフロントより報告させるという事だったが、結局何の連絡も無し。翌日改めてこのトラブルでクレームを付けると、当初善処の姿勢が見られなかったが、最終的にホテル手持ちの代替品を貸し与えてくれた。このような事故は起こり得る事なので、フロントのもう少し真心ある対応が求められる。

"Traumlage"
Das Beste ist die fantastische Lage, Blick auf Stadt und Hafen, direkt unterhalb der Burg. Von dort sehr schöner Spazierweg in die Stadt; z.T. sehr steil, Aufstieg wäre mühsam, aber mit dem Taxi ist man schnell und für knapp 7 € zurück. Der Besuch begann ärgerlich, das angebotene Zimmer war in der äußersten Ecke mit nur begrenztem Blick auf die Stadt. Es wurde aber dann sofort und bereitwillig ein gutes Zimmer zur Verfügung gestellt, warum nicht gleich? Großes Zimmer mit Traumblick, Einrichtung wirkt Ikea-like, ist aber sicher nicht, sehr gute Betten. Dass bei dem Preis nur Pro 7 im TV angeboten wird, störte uns zwar nicht, ist aber nicht verständlich. Richtig ärgerlich war das erste Frühstück, es gab keinen schwarzen Tee und zum Nachlegen musste mehrfach aufgefordert werden. Am nächsten Tag war das alles - aufgrund unserer Reklamation? - behoben, keinerlei Beanstandungen. Dass der Service verbesserungswürdig ist, belegt auch der Umstand , dass in der Minibar 2 angebrochene Flaschen Wasser standen. Das Hotel wirkt insgesamt etwas in die Jahre gekommen. Dennoch war es letztlich ein angenehmer Aufenthalt.

"レストラン代金のカードが使えなかった"
マラガ市街地からは程遠い山にある。徒歩はむり。山もからなりの登り坂の上だ。当然山の上なのでお店は一切なく買い物など利便性はない。ただ、それが逆にいい。見晴らしは最高だ。宿泊者以外もわざわざ来るくらいである。スタッフも非常に親切であった。屋上プールも利用した。ただ、冷たくはいれるものではなかった。質素なプールでただ日焼けするだけのレベルと思ったほうがいい。総じて、「眺めがいい」に尽きるホテルである。2万円以下であったので満足している。ただ、チェックアウト時ホテル内のレストラン代金がクレジットカードが使えなかった。機会が壊れているか何からしい。明らかにホテル側の不備である。あまりキャッシュをもっていかなかったので、レストラン代金80ユーロを泣く泣く支払った。そういった落ち度もあったホテルであった。

Dejligt hotel, smukt beliggende med den skønneste udsigt over Malaga, tyrefægterarena og Middelhavet. Hvis vejret er godt, kan man sidde ude og få en drink. Der er en fin bar indendørs, der også har udendørs servering. Værelserne er fine med god udsigt fra altan/balkon. Maden er ok, morgenmaden fin. De serverer herlige clubsandwiches (meget store). Taxa er relativ billig og nemme at få fat i. Man kan gå ned til byen via en smuk, men stejl sti. Der holder turistbus og almindelig bus lige i nærheden, som kører til centrum på 10 minutter. Vejret kan ikke styres.....
