Gran Miramar is a hotel with a capital H
When visiting Malaga on the south coast of Spain, there is one hotel that stands out from the rest in this vibrant metropolis. The venerable Gran Miramar has hosted kings and queens throughout its long and colourful history.
The Gran Miramar is known as the hotel that has it all. It was opened with pomp and splendour by Spanish King Alfonso XIII way back in 1926. This luxury hotel was one of the most prominent hotels to cater to the elite in Spain and Europe.
After a troubled period during the civil war and dictator Franco's rule, the hotel was closed in 1967 and used as an administrative centre until a group of investors renovated this gem back to its original splendour as recently as in 2016.
The hotel has refurbished 200 rooms and 29 suites spread over its spacious 13,000 square metres and is one of the best hotels you can find on Spain's sunshine coast. The listed building is just 100 metres from the popular city beach La Malagueta. However, if you prefer a dip in the hotel, its spa is first class, and the pool is heated year round.
As its name implies (sea view), one has stunning views of the city, the sea, the beach, and the beautiful gardens surrounding this hotel in the heart of Malaga.
Guests can experience luxury when checking into one of the many elegant rooms the hotel has to offer. The rooms are well designed, with modern furnishings and a private bathroom stocked with Bulgari amenities.

Food and drink
At the hotel, you also have the opportunity to enjoy a fine meal or a drink while enjoying breathtaking views. The hotel's Príncipe de Asturias restaurant serves a wide range of international dishes focusing on Mediterranean flavours and features a casual snack bar.
Take the lift to the roof terrace and relax in comfort. It’s a great place to enjoy both the day and the evening with your partner, family, or good friends. Sip some Cava as your eyes take in the magnificent sea view.
The hotel breakfast is the perfect start to the day. It is served on the same level as the pool. Breakfast consists of an extensive buffet with a large selection of fruit, cold cuts, cheeses, and pastries. Meals can also be ordered and cooked in an open kitchen.
There is also a children's pool and a seasonal kids' club, as well as a wide range of meeting and conference rooms at the hotel.
Shopping, activities and restaurants just minutes away
The Gran Miramar Hotel is just a few minutes' walk away from one of the most historic and worthy places you can get in Malaga, namely the Alcazaba. Construction of this ancient Moorish fortress first began 1,000 years ago, and it is well-preserved and has a unique panoramic view of the city. Close to the entrance to the Alcazaba, you will also find a well-preserved Roman amphitheatre. The city is full of historic things to see and experience.
La Manquita - Little one-armed
The cathedral in Malaga’s old town is an impressive sight, despite the fact that the construction work is ongoing. The cathedral has been nicknamed "La Manquita" – ‘little one-armed’ — since the southern tower is missing. Don’t miss the Picasso Museum, which has quickly become one of Spain's biggest attractions, featuring artworks by world-renowned painter Pablo Picasso.
Gran Miramar also gives you good access to the many exclusive shops that Malaga has to offer. Find everything from exclusive major brands such as Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Dior to international major stores such as Victoria's Secret and Zara. In Calle Larios, you will find most of the major well-known brands, in addition to unique boutiques. You can also find some good shops in the many small streets and lanes around Calle Larios.
La Barra De Zapata
Don't forget to enjoy a good lunch or a late dinner in the streets of Malaga. The selection is large and varied and is just a short walk from the hotel. One place you should visit is the Spanish restaurant La Barra De Zapata. Here, they serve perfectly prepared Spanish tapas, of which octopus and truffle risotto are a couple of the signature dishes. It also has a good selection of local wines and an intimate atmosphere.
You should also try Buenavista Gastrobar. It’s a gem of a restaurant with high quality Mediterranean cuisine. Here, you will receive delicious food and drink as well as world-class service. The lobster paella is an amazing dish!
As a major European city, Malaga has a lot to offer, with almost guaranteed sunshine. The Hotel Gran Miramar offers premier accommodation, which you should seriously consider booking when visiting the capital of the Costa del Sol for a holiday or overnight stay.
