Hotels in Malaga offer impressive accommodations in a city nicknamed “Sun Coast”. The birthplace of Pablo Picasso, Malaga is known for its fashion, its museums, its festivals, its beautiful people, its historical and cultural buildings, its tapas, its beaches and its sunshine. Boasting around 300 days of sunshine annually, Malaga makes for one of Spain’s most desirable travel destinations. With their frescoes, artfulness, tradition and viewpoints, hotels in Malaga are some of the most chic you’ll find anywhere. Before we get to hotels in Malaga, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.
Founded by the Tyre Phoenicians circa 700 BC as a way-point between Phoenician and Strait of Gibraltar trade routes, Malaga was ruled by Carthage from about the 6th century BC. Thereafter, the Roman Republic took control of the area at around the 1st century. After the collapse of the Western Roman Empire, the area was ruled by the Visigoths, the Byzantine Empire and the Emirate of Cordoba, respectively. On August 24, 1704, the Battle of Malaga proved to be the largest naval battle in the War of the Spanish Succession. During the Spanish Civil War, Malaga’s harbor was a base for the Spanish Republican Navy. The Spanish Civil War resulted in a Francoist takeover from 1936 to 1975, during which time dictator Francisco Franco ruled Spain with the title Caudillo.
Malaga, the capital of the Province of Malaga, is an Andalusian autonomous community with a population of over 500,000 people. Characterized by a subtropical-Mediterranean climate, Malaga experiences mild winters and hot summers, with average August highs at around 87 degrees Fahrenheit, and average January highs at around 62 degrees. The city is bordered by the Montes de Málaga Natural Park to the north and the Alboran Sea to the south. About 420 miles across the Alboran Sea from Malaga lies the country of Morocco. The city’s major points of interest include Alcazaba, Malaga Cathedral, Anglican Cemetery of St. George, Museo Picasso Málaga, Museo de Málaga, Palacio de la Aduana, Carmen Thyssen Museum, Palacio de los Condes de Buenavista, Museum Jorge Rando and La Rosaleda Stadium, Popular foods include Gazpachuelo Malagueño, a type of soup made with egg whites, Porra Antequerana, a tomato soup, Fritura Malagueña, which is fried fish, Almendras Fritas, or fried almonds, Espeto, which consists of skewered meat, Ensalada Malagueña, a type of vegan salad, churros, Patatas alioli, or potatoes and Paella, which is Spanish rice. Besides wine and coffee, one of the most popular drinks you’ll find here is Sangria. Now that we have some background information, it’s time for hotels in Malaga that will help provide for an incredible experience.

Oh Malaga. Malaga is home to my best football club. And I hope some day I would be able to watch the match. I just checked out gran hotel. And my God. I love that hotel. Just look at the curtains.

Oh boy these look beautiful.

I loved the website. Loved all the pictures and descriptions of everything. And I love how it gives you suggestions on what to do and why you should stay at a certain hotel. But the only thing I didn’t understand and I’m sure a lot of people would find confusing is where it says the price, it says “for one person” but in parenthesis it has a different number of people.. so is it the price for 1 person or 3? Or 4? I don’t get it. Sorry. But other than that it’s pretty
Hello Anya, the parenthesis (“PER person”) are intended to provide a gauge for budgeting purposes. Not sure where you saw “for one person”, but glad you like the site.

I’ve just finished reading your “Hotels in Malaga” post. Wow! As a person who has never been and always wanted to visit Spain, I am inspired by the accommodations you have suggested. In fact, I could not select even one of them as my favorite possibility. Because all of them seem to be really fabulous. I now want to visit Spain even more and, in particular, Malaga. We would be particularly interested in the Picasso Museum, too.
