All around awesome stay. Friendly staff, good food, easy access, good wifi, a 6+ for location (too bad I can only give it a 5). The beds are a bit old and stiff, which I like but others may not. Stay here and we will stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A genius location and very friendly hotel staff"
I enjoyed my stay at Carlos V hotel very much, i could visit all major attractions in a distance not far than 100 meters and once i asked for advice from hotel reception employee about a place to eat Paella and he honestly recommended 2 places which i tried and was a wonderful experience, also hotel staff are very knowledgable with english language […] which is very crucial in spain.

"Close to my favorites in Malaga"
I always stay here when in Malaga. Close to the Plaza de Merced (my favorite place in Malaga) where there are lots of restaurants and a wonderful plaza. Also close to Picasso Museum and the teteria. Wonderful location for evening strolls past the Cathedral.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dingy but well situated inexpensive hotel"
But for its location and price this hotel is worn and not terribly comfortable. We arrived to find that they did not have a double bed as requested but did get two beds pushed together. The air conditioning was difficult to figure out and once we did it blasted cold air continuously right only us with no ability to modulate the fan speed.

"The perfect location in Malaga city"
We normally stay just outside Malaga for our regular visits, so it was a real treat to be right in the centre of everything, within easy walking distance of all our favourite bars and restaurants. The room was small and a little noisy, but for the price, it was really good value and had everything we needed. My only criticism is that there were no power […] points near the desk, so I had to balance my laptop on the minibar instead! We will definitely use this hotel again.

Great location, right next to Cathedral, worked well for us to join a tour from Malaga next day. Friendly staff. Price higher due to Easter festival Semana Santa but well worth it for the festival.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is in A great location, staff is helpful and kind, speaking English, clean but wifi is not fast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was OK but we paid a budget price for the room and although it says it is four stars, it was more like a hostel, not a hotel. Staff were friendly enough and it is in a great location. There was a small t.v but no fridge or safe in the room. OK for one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very basic room."
We stayed for two separate nights, at the beginning and end of our holiday. Although we were given toiletries and towels and had a bathroom, the room was the cheapest deal they had and was more like a hostel room. I'm not sure the hotel deserved it's two star rating. The staff were very friendly though and it was in a great location. the first time […] we stayed there, the room was better, but the second time, we were on the fourth floor and it was very basic.

"Billigt men ikke pragende"
Der lå brugt toiletpapir i skuffen ved sengen - det tænder mig ikke ligefrem at tænke på, hvad det har været brugt til. Desværre var der generelt en oplevelse af, at man ikke gjorde sig specielt umage.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"BUEN HOTEL EN TODO EL CENTRO"
Las habitaciones del hotel son muy confortables, limpias y tranquilas, muy adecuadas para quien desee descansar sin soportar ruidos exteriores y no se quiera privar de hospedarse en pleno centro, junto a la Catedral, Alcazaba, Teatro Romano y los sitios de tapeo más tradicionales de Málaga. Su parking privado, aunque de pago, te permite resolver el […] problema de aparcamiento de la zona, al ser una zona peatonal. Lo que se hecha en falta es que no tiene servicio de desayuno, pero en la zona hay muchos bares donde se puede desayunar. En definitiva, hotel muy recomendable.Repetiría.

In der Altstadt direkt neben der Alcazaba gelegen. Man wird freundlich empfangen und beraten. Die Zimmer mit Bad sind für ein 2 Sterne Hotel geräumig und sehr sauber. Wifi ein wenig langsam. Restaurant gibt es keins, aber gleich gegenüber ein Cafeteria/Restaurant, wo man frühstücken und Kleinigkeiten essen kann.

Fondamentali i 7 giorni di sole con 28 gradi la prima di ottobre, ma l'hotel è in una posizione tale che ha dato quel qualcosa in più. Posizione eccellente: si esce direttamente nel cuore di Malaga, bus e taxi a portata di mano, la spiaggia della Malagueta coi suoi ristorantini e il Centro Commerciale del porto a dieci minuti veri a piedi, come il Teatro […] Romano, l'Alcazaba e il Castello di Gibralfaro ( salita eccitante con vista da urlo ).

Viajé a Malaga para una boda de un amigo,la cual se celebraba en una iglesia del centro de Malaga,por lo que elegí el hotel por su hubicación,todo un acierto.La atención fue correpta tanto a la entrada como ala salida,por el personal de recepción.La habitación en terminos generales estubo bastante bien,me toco una en la primera planta,con ventana al […] interior y habilitada para personas de movilidad reducida.Aunque yo no lo necesite comprobe que tanto el asceso al baño como los asideros y la ducha sin escalon estaban dentro de lo correpto.El moviliario es bastante espartano y anticuado,pero todo cumple bien su función.La cama comoda.La climatización por un aparato de A/C propio de la habitación lo cual se agradece por que en algunos hoteles de mas estrellas la tienen general y aveces le cuesta enfriar o calentar la habitacion.Por ultimo la ubicación,que fue por lo que lo elegí,es inmejorable,justo a la espalda de la catedral y junto al puerto de malaga.Precio/Calida:bastante bueno para dos estrellas.PROS:Ubicación,Precio CONTRAS:moviliario,televisión pequeña y anticuada Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location but little else"
10/06/14 CZ1981 Rotterdam, The Netherlands
I stayed here in Sept. 2014 with my wife. The hotel has a great location right in the center of the city. It's about a 5 minute walk from the entrance to the entrance to the Alcazaba but its location is really the only good thing I can say about this hotel. I had originally booked the room for about USD 80 for 1 + guest. When I checked out they charged me extra for my wife. The reservation said nothing about charging extra. Nothing was mentioned when I checked in. Originally was supposed go pay USD 80 per night but with the extra charge it came to USD 100. This hotel isn't worth USD 100 per night. Theroom was small, smelly, and the air conditioning units made a lot of noise.
"Great Location Great Value for Money"
09/19/14 AMcK50 Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Right in the heart of the historic centre of Malaga. Only stayed for one night and room was perfectly adequate. Grateful for air conditioning as it was very hot in the city. Provided with shampoo, shower gel etc hairdryer, tv and fridge. Beds extremely comfortable had a great nights sleep. Alvoronso on reception was charming and extremely helpful. I had made a mistake with our oline booking but he rectified the mistake immediately. Malaga is a fantastic city . This was our 4th overnight stay in the past year. Will be returning for another visit next week and hope to stay in Carlos V again. This will be our hotel of choice for any future visits. Great Location, great value for money.
Location is awesome since all the main sights in Malaga you can almost see from the doorway of the hotel and rooms are clean and comfortable. There was a mini fridge for water and such in the room. Since the hotel is located in the heart of the tourism finding a reasonably priced place to eat proved to be difficult so highly recommend scouting the areas restaurants beforehand.
"Avoid if you're sensitive to air quality"
09/09/14 Zuleka Dublin
I stayed here for one night in a small single room on the first floor. The window opened onto what I can only describe as a lift shaft, minus the lift, which was dotted with air conditioning units that rattled and hummed into the early hours. So there I was on the first floor of a four-floor building scarcely able to breathe in a somewhat smelly room. The air conditioner poured stale air into the room and when I opened the window, it was more of the same. Horrible. I was awake all night and sick the following day with blocked up sinuses. Ugh, never again.
08/27/14 LukeUK_12 Manchester
I stayed for two nights here and was very pleased with my room. The single room was very clean and quite spacious, the bathroom also very clean and modern. The location of the hotel is excellent, right behind the cathedral and next to the alcazaba. It is within walking distance of pretty much everything and for the price I paid the value was great. My only criticism is that my room faced onto a dark narrow courtyard, providing no real sunlight, so a claustrophobic person might struggle.
"Another great stay at Carlos V..!"
08/21/14 philosykos Athens
This was my third stay at Carlos V...You cannot beat its great location.. ! Right behind the Cathedral..on a lovely pedestrianized street filled with cafes and restaurants for eating.Since my last visit they have now added a mini fridge in rooms which is a big plus and they have fixed the downstairs siting room will a large T.V. and made a nice sitting area.Free wi fi also now available.Rooms are basic but clean as well as good bathrooms.As far as I am concerned..you cannot beat the location or price for this hotel.The staff are helpful and friendly...A taxi can easily be called and in 2 minutes there if needed! Airport bus just down the road...Cannot find better than this if you are looking for location and a good value priced hotel.

Rooms were small but clean with modern amenities. The provided beach towels. The location is the best part.. Located within walking distance of city center. Staff was very nice. We ended staying 5 days in Malaga instead of the two of our original plan. We loved being in the center of town.. So many restaurants and bars. And the parking was a plus!
"Great for the price"
07/19/14 YUCA2014 Long Beach, California
If you are looking for a cheap place to stay in the middle of the historic center of Malaga and are not very picky, this is it. The rooms and bathrooms are small, there is nowhere to place your soap unless you put it on top of the toilet, the shower curtain was not easily managed and if not careful you end up wetting the toilet paper. As for the beds... not comfortable. Now for the positive: The rooms are clean (old, but clean) and the staff was excellent. I found the air conditioning to be working properly, however if you want the room to stay cool while you are out having fun in the Malaga summer heat, ask for an extra key-card to leave things running or you will come back to a hot, muggy room. As for location, the hotel is right between the cathedral and the Alcazaba (very short walk). There is a movie theater right around the corner, ice cream shops and a great place for mojitos. Shopping could be better.. mostly junk shops. It's nothing like Barcelona. There seems to be quite a few good restaurants with entertainment... flamenco etc.. If you find yourself exhausted from traveling, make the effort to walk half a block and do not bother with the restaurant across the way from the hotel- Cafe-Bar Eurogallo. The food is literally nasty and so is the help. They haven't figured out that their business is dependent on tourism yet.

Stopped at the Carlos V in June, firstly the location is excellent. Round the corner from the cathedral and amphitheatre. Plenty of bars and restaurants near by, 5 minute walk to the marina. Plenty of picturesque views. The rooms at the Carlos V are fantastic for value, cleaned each day could not complain. We spoke with 2 different gentleman at the desk who was most helpful with directions. I would happily go back again, overall very impressed.

Excellent location in the old town. Just a few minutes walk from the port and beach. Very helpful reception staff. This is a two star room only hotel with plenty of eating options in the vicinity. Our room was compact with a modern bathroom.
