CONCLUSION

We only had one night in Malaga and it was actually my first time visiting this city so I wanted to make it special. We could book the Hilton Garden Inn since I have Diamond status but since it is located a bit far from the city center, we decided to look for a hotel which is centrally located and has good reviews. The Gran Hotel Miramar became our choice because of it's number one ranking on Trip Advisor. The rate per night was about 2300 SEK with breakfast which is not cheap but it did not prevent us from booking it. Sure enough, we were not disappointed as the hotel is simply gorgeous. The lobby was extravagant especially the stairs leading to the garden and pool. The room was very nice and had state of the art technology considering all the control buttons there is πŸ˜‰ The Hermes bath amenities were just lovely πŸ‘ The staff were also very friendly and professional. The breakfast buffet had an extensive offering which included the famous Iberico Ham 😍 If there's one thing I could wish for, it was to make the balcony a bit bigger. Of course, there were rooms with large balconies although the price were also high. Overall, the Gran Hotel Miramar is one of the best hotels we've stayed at and being the best hotel in Malaga, we were trully treated to a feast πŸ˜‰
