Just back from a week's stay in Malaga at this hotel. A great time. Hotel is very modern but welcoming. Staff are friendly and helpful. Very easy to find - just get on the train at the airport, disembark at Estacion Maria Zambrano and follow the signs - remember to look up! The bedroom was comfortable with a great view... More

Nice hotel, however you could see a few things were falling apart e.g. The sliding door to the bathroom fell off it's hinges at least 3 times during our weeks stay. The location is awesome, literally next to the train station and walking distance to the beach, a bit more of a trek to the new port but well worth... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in December 2014. It is part of the train station/shopping centre, near to but not easy walking distance from the centre of Malaga. We walked in and took taxi back, about 5 euros. It is very trendy in design. The bar and reception area is a tribute to the space station in 2001: a... More

Stayed at this hotel just one night, great location at the main train station. Shopping onsite in Vialia centre, 5mins to Larios centre, 10min walk to El Corte Ingles/Alameda, another 5mins to calle Larios/old town, where tapas are a must. Check in was quick, do remember ID. We were able to check in early which was convenient. Staff friendly and... More

Very convenient location by the train station, friendly welcome, upgraded to a suite for free which was nice touch and got us a very plush luxury big room. Good location too 10-15 min stroll into town and beside the Hertz rental desk so if dropping a car back couldn't get a better location in Malaga.

Pros: Great location. Right next to maria zambrano main station, which is a few stops from the airport. Got a free upgrade to junior suite. Love the hotel design with a stainless steel slide from the first floor to the reception. Awesome bathroom. A jet bath and separate rain shower. Robes, slippers, towels etc with barcelo logo. Tour bus stops... More

I stayed here last week. It is a nice hotel. Room was fine but the mattress was too soft, king size bed but old mattress. I felt sleeping in a hole, could not sleep well. Pleasant staff. Very clean and breakfast was very good. Overall I was not happy because it was too hot in the room, not nice and... More
