Vincci Posada del Patio

Owned by the Vincci hotel chain, a stay at this 5-star hotel comes with a splash of luxury. The traditional 19th century façade hides a minimalist interior with a treasure chest of Roman and Moorish remains in the basement and a great pool with views on the roof. The cherry on the cake? Vincci Posada del Patio’s great location.


If you’re looking for a hotel in the city centre, but slightly removed from the hustle and bustle, Vincci Posada del Patio is well worth considering. It sits on the western-most side of the old quarter on the river, generally one of the quieter areas.

However, all Malaga tourist attractions are within a short walk. For example, Calle Larios is a 10-minute stroll along Calle Especerías, lined with traditional shops. Monuments such the Cathedral and Alcazaba Fortress are around 15 minutes away, while Malaga Port and Muelle Uno are very slightly further.

The best shops and restaurants are also on your doorstep, with the Soho district just across the Alameda Principal. Foodies will be pleased to know that Atarazanas Market is also just around the corner.

Public transport is nearby, including the Cercanías train station with frequent services to the airport.


Vincci Posada del Patio has 106 rooms, ranging from regular doubles to the superior junior suites. All are newly refurbished, spacious and come with tasteful design – we love the vibrant ‘peacock’ headboards.

Some have balconies, looking out over the river. Those in the superior category have further-reaching views over the old quarter, while the best rooms have private terraces. Treat yourselves to a suite where the extras include luxury roll-top baths.

  • A rooftop plunge pool
  • Onsite restaurant
  • Bar with live music at weekends
  • Cosy library
  • Meeting and event spaces
  • Moorish walls in the basement
