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.
How to Get There
Very disappointed that a 5 Star hotel that we paid €2085 for 7 nights didn't think it necessary to inform us of building works right outside our room (115) window every week day morning at 08-30am air compressors starting up and workmen chipping tiles off adjacent building. I will not have it that we could moved room after we had unpacked all our luggage and why put anyone in there in the first place, when the hotel are aware of this building work ? Not acceptable
This is the sort of hotel that you want to come back to. Very clean, with friendly staff and nice rooftop pool area. After our welcome drink in the cool bar, we upgraded to a VIP room, which was really quiet and had its own terrace for breakfast in the sun.
The location is very central, within easy walking distance of the Placa de la Constitucion (the very centre of town) and many of the main attractions and places to eat. And if you just need a few basics, there's a convenience store almost next door.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely stay again.
Lovely 5⭐️ hotel (about 20 Euro taxi from airport), great location close to the old town and its many squares - about 30 minutes walk to the port and restaurants so it probably won’t be for you if you want quick access to the beaches. Clean and friendly service. Rooftop pool. Small gym, quaint little courtyard.
This hotel is the worst ever, we been stolen while we were having our breakfast!!!! Even the Breakfast area was small (5x5) !! And the reaction after the incident was shocked for us!! 2 bags full of our credit-cards, identifications and money... the staff reaction was the worst , no cooperation and it was like something normal to have thieves inside the hotel with no security or control! I asked to call the police and i was lucky that my driver translate for us since the police do not know how to speak english, everything happened while the hotel staff did nothing even no apologize for what happened , which really gave us feeling that it was ????? between the staff, even the cameras, yes there was no camera inside the BF area but there were camera in the lobby and outside the hotel and could been checked at least to see with the police , but what happened was an evident that this hotel is not secured at all !!!!
We have just returned from a 4-night stay at the Posada del Patio (last week of April). it was our first visit to this hotel and to Malaga city. My husband and I travelled without our kids on this occasion.
On arrival, we were upgraded to a junior suite with a balcony without having requested it which was a lovely bonus. I had emailed the hotel in advance to confirm our booking and to request a balcony if possible. We stayed on the 4th floor and were more than happy with our spacious room. We also had access to a complementary trolley of treats and sweets and coffee and wine, depending on the time of day - a nice touch.
We booked room-only rate as the cost of breakfast was quite high and we knew we could eat out easily each morning. There is plenty of choice of cafes beside the hotel.
The location is excellent, couldn't be easier to walk around the old centre of Malaga and down to the port.
We got the bus from the Airport on arrivals but paid €24 to get a taxi (rank outside the hotel door) for our return journey - so handy.
This hotel felt like a small boutique-style hotel and while it is quite expensive that's the choice you make!
We didn't eat in the hotel, again due to lots of good, cheaper alternatives in easy reach so can't comment on the food.
