“Very Good, pleasant stay, but not quite 5 star”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Stayed at Vincci Seleccion Posada del Patio in August 2011 during the Feria de Malaga, a week long celebration with people singing, dancing and drinking Cartojal (sweet white wine served chilled) on the streets. Great location, very very close to the city center.

Nice small swimming pool on the roof great for a quick swim in the morning. Quite few sunbeds, but perfectly understandable due to the small space.

Why not a 5 star as described?

1. Our room was thoroughly cleaned every day with one exception - the floor ! We stayed 10nights and on none of these days was the floor sweeped.. One can imagine that a few sand grains added up each day we went to the beach even if we washed our feet.

2. On our second day we noticed a large stain above our neighbor's door and contacted the reception. It was a flood. The ceiling was torn (probably to fix the plumbing) and so it remained for the rest of our (10day)stay.

All the above should NOT put you in doubt of chosing this hotel, it's just to think twice should you consider it's a bit expensive for a 5 star hotel.

And one more thing, there are parking spaces close by contrary to what we were told at the reception (of course it's normal to try to charge for the hotel's parking space instead of directing you to the next street's free parking lot)

We used this hotel as a last night stopover before flying back home so I can’t comment on the location. It was easily found with GPS and has a valet parking stop at the door so extremely convenient. The hotel is very modern and quite beautiful with some lovely touches – a reading room, a bar that sells tapas all day, a really lovely restaurant and first class staff. At a walk in rate of 99 euro a night I think it is brilliant value.

We upgraded to a superior room (+20 euros) and were awarded with 322. Rather taken aback to be given a twin room (we weren’t asked) but we’ve been married 20 years so not really a problem -particularly when we spotted the lovely terrace. It was a real shame that the sun never made it round (as it is so low in December) but for other times of year this must be a great addition. Looking down from the pool area I think it may be the only one of its type in the hotel.

We had a long, late and boozy lunch. The food was delicious and the service really good too. Breakfast buffet had a great, fresh selection - no chance of starving here.

All in all a nice stay. Perhaps not the most memorable hotel but would recommend highly.

This Hotel was a real find, in the heart of Malaga City, a short walk from the Cathedral and the lovely pedestrianised shopping areas, 20 walkable distance from the port, the harbour and the beach.
The staff were excellent and couldn't have been more helpful, and the hotel was perfect throughout. We were able to pay extra for a late checkout until 4pm and this was good value for money.
My daughter enjoyed the chocolate fountain at breakfast, and we would definitely return to this hotel. On a minor note the rooftop pool is small with very little room for sunbathing, but stunning to stand there and see the floodlit city at night.

Room Tip: My room didnt have tea/coffee making facilities so ask for one when booking. Lower floored rooms di...

We arrived after a cruise, so got to the hotel very early in the morning i.e. 09.30. The girl at the check-in was very pleasant and efficient. We decided to upgrade for an extra 20 euros, and the room was available immediately, which meant we could unpack and change.
Large, clean room with good-sized bathroom and we were on the top floor with a view of the pool and Malaga rooftops. There was a slight problem as some water from the shower ran into the bathroom rather than draining into the shower basin, and there's not much wardrobe space, but apart from that the room was great.
Breakfast was a very good buffet: fruit, cereals, juice, pastries, ham, eggs, olives and hot dishes. There's even a chocolate fountain for the kids and a bottle of cava if you want to start the day off in style.
The hotel is about 10 minutes' walk from the main square and tourist sites such as the Picasso museum, cathedral etc., and the hotel staff will give you a map and clear directions. Also, try to visit the market, five minutes away, for a real taste of local life with hardly a tourist in sight.
All in all, if I go back to Malaga I'll certainly go back to the Posada del Patio.
We didn't try the hotel restaurant or bar, as Malaga has more than enough to offer
