The Lowdown

With its tiled roof, blonde-wood floors, airy public rooms and LCD TVs in every room, the Posada del Patio is a crisp, restful modern hotel perfect for a city break on the Costa del Sol. It also features unexpected touches, like sculptural walls in some guest rooms or the glass floors in some of the public spaces, which reveal a view of the city’s historical roots.

In the Area

Bustling Malaga is a hub for domestic and international travel on the popular Costa del Sol, meaning tourists almost always pass through here at least once during their southern Spain sojourn. While some choose to skip the city altogether and head straight for the beach, there are reasons to spend a few days in Malaga. In addition to opportunities for shopping, the Museo Picasso is a must-see, while a visit to the Alcazaba, the historical fortress, is also worthwhile. Malaga is a major port, so those seeking quieter beaches may wish to rent a car and head to swanky Marbella for a day or more.

What a wonderful place to stay. We are here for our wedding anniversary. When we returned to our room a lovely gift of fizz and chocolate was placed in our room. How kind and lovely, it made us both smile. Thank you Laura Hermida.

an Excellent Hotel

I could really recommend this Hotel, it is an excellent Hotel. Very good location and easy access, approximately a 7 minutes walk from the commuter train. The staff is positive and helpful, the rooms are very clean, and a lot of space compared to similar hotels.

Archeology in the basement!

Just returned from a 4 night/5 day stay at this beautiful hotel.
Our room was spacious and very clean with plenty of storage space. The bathroom was also a good size with a brilliant shower over the bath (but this was flat bottomed and very comfortable to use with little risk of slipping). There was also a sliding 'frosted glass' modesty screen between the washing area and the toilet & bidet. Our room was at the front of the hotel overlooking the street and there was a buzz of activity but it was not noisy. We had to have the window open as the room was quite warm but it was still very easy to sleep.
Everyone we encountered at the hotel was friendly and extremely welcoming - Reception, Breakfast room, Bar, Restaurant, Cleaners - everyone.
The hotel itself is very modern with lots of glass and stainless steel - very clean lines both very smart and comfortable and welcoming. The hotel is built on the site of a very old Inn, part of the old Arabic city wall and the Roman sea wall (?) The owners have gone to great pains to ensure that archeological remains are accessable and have made them a feature of the small resturant by building a glass floor over them. Other public areas are also quite stylish - the Library, a lovely quiet area with an exhibition of photographs and small artworks and the Patio, an awning covered outside space with sofas and chairs - really nice to relax in. There is also a swimming pool on the roof which looked very enticing.
The food was excellent. the breakfast buffet was extensive and catered for just about every taste however, if you wanted more, there was an accompanying menu of items prepared to order. We ate dinner in the restaurant and the food was beautiful. The menu wasn't huge but there was plenty of choice covering all tastes and the restaurant staff and the chefs were happy to put themselves out to make changes to dishes to suit personal taste.
We had a brilliant time here and would recommend it to anyone thinking of spending time in the beautiful city of Malaga.

Very Good Hotel, Well Located

Our tour booked this hotel for us, and we very much enjoyed our stay here.
Our room was a good size with comfortable bed accompanied by one of my personal favourites - personal reading lights. Bathroom was also very clean and a good size, with two sinks and a combined bath and shower. The shower had both a hand-held and a "raindrop" option. And appreciated by those of us needing reading glasses, the toiletries had large lettering.
We didn't use many of the facilities of the hotel, but did enjoy a hearty breakfast here. All the areas of hotel had very clean lines, if a little on the austere side.
The hotel is located on the edge of the main tourist/pedestrian shopping precinct. It was only a 5min stroll to the main shopping area, and 10-15min to the Cathedral, Castle and Picasso museum.
Although close to the action, there was no night noise.
Would happily stay here again if we return to Malaga.

We had a wonderful five day stay at a very central location in Malaga

We had a Junior Suite with lots of space. Despite being in the centre of the city, it was quiet. I cannot fault the hotel-the service in the restaurant,bar area and our site was excellent.
Breakfast was superb.
We were within easy walking distance for the centre of Malaga and took in a lovely Picasso exhibition. Also Cortes Ingles for shopping was very close-a shopping paradise with a lovely roof top bar restaurant
