Located in the historic centre of Málaga, Vincci Selección Posada del Patio 5* is built on the site of two ancient buildings, one of which was one of the last posadas (old style inns) that existed in Málaga, while the other was a residential building, of which the façade from the start of the 20th century has been preserved. It’s been entirely renovated, preserving the patio that gives it its name and the old hall from the entrance on Calle Camas.
Under the two buildings were found remains of Málaga’s Arab wall, together with remnants of the old Puerta del Río, as well as an old tannery and various tools which are on display in the hotel. It has 106 rooms with every amenity to ensure a unique experience and its à la carte restaurant ‘Le Diner’ is the perfect place to savour the best of Málaga’s cuisine with a sophisticated touch.
