< SPAIN | MÁLAGA: Gran Hotel Miramar
Located in the area of La Caleta, between Paseo de Reding avenue and the sea front, with the principal entrance facing the Mediterranean Sea, Gran Hotel Miramar Resort & Spa offers marvellous views over the Bay of Malaga and is just 5 minutes away from the city's top museums.
It is considered the masterpiece of architect Fernando Guerrero Strachan's work. After five years of construction, the hotel finally opened in 1926 by King Alfonso XIII, under
the name Hotel Príncipe de Asturias.
From 1936 until 1939, during the Spanish Civil War, its facilities were used as a field hospital to tend to the injured. At the end of the war, the palace reopened its doors and regained some of its old functions under the name Hotel Miramar, however in 1967 the hotel closed its doors again.
During the period of 1987 to 2007, the building was Malaga’s Palace of Justice, completely transforming its activity and spaces to adapt to its new role.
In 2016, Hoteles Santos bought the property of Palacio de Miramar and brought back its original function, as well as historical splendour of the palace. During its long history, this beautiful historic building has welcomed illustrious guests from amongst European nobility, the world of the arts and Spanish high society.
Today, the hotel feature 200 rooms and suites, equipped with the latest technology and exclusive services for greater guest satisfaction and comfort. Many of the guestrooms offer spectacular sea views.
