Historical Traveller Reviews of AC Malaga Palacio Hotel
Not a good choice if you value being able to sleepfrom FlCracker
Worst part about the place was the lack of soundproofing. The doors to the balcony are about 75% effective, but it is an extremely busy boulevard and there is substantial noise that goes along with the road. In addition, you could hear your neighbors talking through the walls and every step that people took in the room above you. Whenever plumbing was used in other adjoining rooms, you could hear that as well in your bathroom. I am shocked that other reviewers haven't called attention to this problem. My husband is a heavy sleeper and even he couldn't cope.
Initially the room was clean, but after that, I noticed that the wood floors in our room were never once swept. I kept thinking that this was surely an oversight and finally just resorted to taking slippers from the gym for use while in the room. There were also no robes in the room (as was represented on the hotel site). The lack of an iron was unfortunate, especially given that this is a business hotel.
Positives included the free minibar in the room which was restocked daily. The staff seemed helpful. They did grant our request for a harbor view room. Taxi stand out front was convenient. Having a balcony was nice (again, no chairs).
The location is central, but if I return I would stay at the Don Curro or Larios, which also have nice locations on much quieter streets.

Excellent hotelfrom P.Rouse
The roof top pool was excellent and although not crowded on the first day we arrived ( a thursday) on the friday it seemed a lot busier although possibly with locals. Even so you could still get a bed and it wasn't crowded.
The facilities are excellent at this hotel and it was a nice touch having a gym and sauna. It is more of a business hotel than a tourist hotel but this is a plus as there are virtually no children! The location is excellent and I would definitely stay here again.

Best Location in Malaga Cityfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The location of this hotel is excellent - next to the cathedral and old town yet within 3 minutes of the Picasso museum and main sqaures, streets and restaurants. The majority of rooms at the front of the hotel have a balcony and view of the port (at no extra charge) My tip would be to ask for a port view room on the 9th 10th or 11th floor - this should guarantee a balcony with an open view. If you aren't allocated a suitable room then simply ask to change on arrival as the hotel is rarely full.
The pool area on the roof (15th floor) is very welcome. Free towels and free bottled water are provided from a stock in the changing rooms - just help yourself. There are only about a dozen sunbeds but we've never had a problem getting one. Plenty of shade is available. Note that pool area is closed during winter months. Even if you don't sunbathe you should go there to get an unusual view of the cathedral (you look down on it)
The free mini bar of mainly soft drinks in the bedroom is still available and this year a free mini bar (beer & soft drinks) and coffee and cakes are provided in the ground floor lounge between midnight and 7.00am
24 hour taxi rank outside is useful. If you are staying for few days then Malaga's best kept secret and my recommendation is that you visit Pedregalejo after 9.00pm (when the locals start to eat). This is a conservation suberb of Malaga located about 2 miles east, on the coast with a long promenade but no traffic. It is packed with open air fish restauarnts which have beach barbecues and is where the residents of Malaga eat cheaply. A taxi is about 5 euros or you can catch the no 11 bus opposite the hotel. This runs every 10 minutes during the day.
The main tip is to use the hotel as a base and get out and enjoy yourself - we always do.

Again agreeing with previous review, the lack of table and chairs on the balcony is a minus; nevertheless, the view over the harbour is lovely. Not all rooms overlook the harbour though. The blinds in the room were excellent at keeping incoming light to a minimum and this would be very necessary in high summer as the sun rises in this direction.
There is a minibar in the room with free beer, soft drinks including coke and water, and fruit juices. Other drinks have to be ordered and paid for.
Our rate included breakfast and this was an excellent buffet which included hot dishes and Cava.
The Restaurant itself is very good and reasonably priced although the range of dishes is not big.
The gym is small but modern.
There is an underground car park not too far away.
I found the staff very helpful without being in your face.

Gambas Pil Pil The major draw for us returning to Malaga was the wonderful Gambas Pil Pil & Habas con Jamon at La Dehesa bar/restaurant, just off calle Larios. Highly recommended.
