      Historical Traveler Reviews Don Curro Hotel Málaga

      Great location in historic district

      from

      The location is great -- right in the historic district within walking distance of many interesting sites. However, we found it very hard to find because of the many pedestrian-only streets. Finally came across a tourist bureau that gave up complicated but helpful directions, winding around the Cathedral. Drive out of town to the airport was very straightforward --important to us because we had to return a rental car there before an early flight.

      Well-appointed room and bathroom with a major flaw. We needed, and requested, a non-smoking room. However, there was a distinct odor of smoke in the ventilation system, which caused us to sleep with the window open. As a result, it was noisy and hot. We didn't sleep very well.

      Pleasant bar-restaurant, where we had dinner -- a good seafood dish and a less-good pork dish. Excellent desserts.

      Great choice for a short stay

      from

      Stayed here one night after a week in Marbella. We wanted a hotel in town so we could re-visit the Cafe de Paris (a Michelin star restaurant just a walk away - if you're there, try the tasting menu, it's perfect) and to be fairly near the airport (12 Euros by taxi). The hotel was very good value (we were upgraded for free to a room on the 7th floor on the west side, with a balcony and afternoon sunshine - perfect for a winter afternoon). The rooms are basic international, clean, no frills but very pleasant. There's a cafe next door for a cheap breakfast and all the shops and restaurants in town are just a walk away. This would be our first choice for a short stay.

      Very good

      from

      Stayed the weekend 16-18 Dec 2005. Exceptional for the money. Excellent position in town, superbly clean. Rated as 3 star. Perhaps should be more. Reccommended.

      A great surprise

      from

      Struggled to find accomodation anywhere on the Costa del Sol and after hours searching, we happened upon the Don Curro and boy were we lucky. The rooms were very spacious , cool, clean and quiet. The air conditioning was a pleasure to experience and we found it hard to believe we were actually in the middle of a large city. Very well placed for the shops and minutes away from the beaches. The hotel lacks a pool which detracts slightly from its overall effect. One point worth mentioning is the parking. If you don't park in the hotel's car park (quite expensive) then beware getting a parking ticket when parked on the street (weekdays) after 8am. Parking in the daytime is a nightmare.

      Very nice hotel

      from

      Just spent 3 nights in Malaga. Stayed at the Don Curro Hotel and here are some of our thoughts:

      1. Location: Excellent location for visiting the entire Costa Del Sol area. The hotel is a 4 or 5 minute walk from the bus stop that takes you as far east as Nerja and as far west as Fuengirola. The hotel is directly next to a very nice, long street that was excellent for strolling around (don't remember the name of the street). Easy access to banks, restaurants, shops, cathedral, etc.... Perfectly central.

      2. Atmosphere: Reminded me of hotels in the U.S.. Very clean and organized. Not very friendly but not rude either. Just business as usual.

      3. Room: Very nice rooms. Very spacious and clean. One of the nicest rooms I've stayed at in 3 trips to Europe (16 hotels). Bathroom was very big, clean, and comfortable. Having a minibar in the room was nice as well.

      4. Overall: Excellent value. Paid 64 euros per night without breakfast. Great location, great price, and very nice room. Would absolutely stay here again. One of the best choice we've made on hotels.

      Hope this helps.

      Good value for money

      from

      Great location at the edge of the old town with easy walking access to all points of interest; clean hotel with reasonable service (sometimes check-in staff looks a bit stressed); watch out for bargains (paid 40 Euros for a single room on last minute basis)

      Excellent Value For Money!

      from

      Clean, spacious room, and even the air con was working!!! right in the city centre, longer way from the beaches. Breakfast ok/mediocre, but a bit chatic because you actually have to order from a waiter and they don't always speak very good english. The maid came to clean everyday, the cleanliness was absolutely superb, overall the stay in Don Curro was a very good experince, I would recommend for anyone looking for value for their money!

      Very central hotel - a great base to see the city!!!

      from

      Stayed here for 3 nights last week. The hotel is very central and makes an excellent base to see the city from!

      Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in this great city!!!!

      Decent and affordable

      from

      A decent, clean hotel with professional staff. They have four or five floors, but don't worry, there's an elevator. We booked the most affordable room, and it was clean, fresh, bathroom was nice.

      Location of the hotel is very near a main pedestrian walkway and near the Picasso Museum and the main cathedral. Would recommend it.

      Good position

      from

      Stayed at the Don Curro a couple of times its easy to get to when flying into Malaga, and the flight we usually take gets us there on a Sunday evening and they do a cheap weekend rate.There is a nice Cafe 2 mins walk from the hotel and it is nicely positioned for the cathedral and other points of interest in Malaga. It is very clean and I would recommend it to anybody.

      Lovely Costa Del Sol

      The Costa Del Sol is a long standing favourite of the Brits- from Malaga to Gibraltar, the coast is dotted with resorts- Calle's & Playa's, small towns and large places like Marbella, Malaga, Figuenrola, Torremolinas and others. Now we have spent time here, not sure why some people might be a bit sniffy about this area, its mostly lovely!

I also listened to podcasts by "Notes in Spanish" by Ben and Marina which are also very helpful to learn the important phrases and especially the street talk which I have found you will probably need the most. in addition to this i took about 6 months of Spanish lessons 1 night a week for about 1.5 hours a lesson to try and ...

Bullfighting in Ronda takes place in September and probably wouldn't interest us but being in the center of a real bullring was a first for us. The Bullring complex also included a couple of very good museums. The Ronda bullring looked small to us but has seating for 4000. As easy as the drive to Ronda was, the drive back DOWN to the coast was ...

      ... first 2 things I asked for so recommended beef cheek which was amazing and Laurie's Steak was great too. So then we ask for the bill, our waiter brings us some dessert to share and Cava (sparkling wine), ok sure, we ask for the bill again a bit later, our waiter brings us more gin and tonics! Now we think we've really been done, you know "stupid tourist" they'll take anything ...

After all the confusion, a quick swap of navigator and what seemed like a life time (but realistically was only 40 minutes) Jed managed to outsmart the one way systems and we finally made it to the Car Hire return! This is where Steph ...
