Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. Nice modern room with massive bed, soft bed topper and pile of pillows. Sleep quality is second to none. Polite and friendly staff. Although conveniently located in Maria Zambrano station it is a good 30 min walk to the best bars and restaurants. The main beach is good 45 min walk. Good fun... More

I stayed here twice as a stop to/from Ronda. Rooms were very clean, modern, and quiet. The bathrooms are spa-like. The air-conditioning was a blessing during a heatwave. The location *in* the Mall and train station make it ideal for travelers. I highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

The barcelo is a modernist hotel collocated with the main train station (trains in from airport and rest of Spain). Large rooms, interesting communal areas, an all singing all dancing shower and a slide from the first floor which is great fun. Very convenient for business as it is in the middle of the new town. About twenty minutes walk... More

The reason why I booked this hotel was mostly the perfect location (right in the same building as the main station). As I was in Málaga now for several times, I tried to avoid the high rush of the inner city but still within a walking distance. The hotel is very stylish ( a slide in the lobby). The breakfast...

The hotel lies next to one of the many train station, so the location is great and handy. Lobby, reception and bar on the ground floor are basic. It looks nice and has the things you expect. The rooms are of a good size with a excellent bed. Really big, soft and lies great. Ask for a view, that's the... More

Best part of this hotel is that it's co-located with the Malaga - María Zambrano Railway station - so one can walk-in to check-in. It has a slide from the first floor to the ground floor which kids love. Friendly staff, good food and amazing location. We had a great time.

Chose this hotel as it was convenient to bus station. So glad we did. Bright, modern and quirky. Loved the slide from the first floor into the bar! The room was excellent. Enormous bed with choice of pillows. Very comfortable. Lovely bathroom with all singing all dancing shower! Staff helpful and friendly.

We enjoyed a 2-night stay at this hotel. The rooms are very modern. Bathroom was clean with modern fixtures. The rooms were spacious. We arrived by train from Madrid and this was the perfect location because it is connected to the train station. This was a major plus for this hotel because it was very convenient to have the lobby... More

I booked this hotel in Malaga on Expedia. Our party consisted of three adults. One adult required a single occupancy room but was given a standard double room at no extra charge. The location of the hotel is central and close to a taxi rank and the main railway station can be accesed directly from the hotel in fact you... More

Fantastic hotel. We arrived very late at night with a (very unhappy) toddler. Receptionist checked us in while another colleague helped my partner with getting a bottle of milk made up. All very friendly and efficient. We stayed on the 7th floor, our room was great, super huge bed. A cot bed for our little boy was provided free of... More
