“1 night stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

we stayed here for 1 night before starting our holiday to callahonda .the rooms are very clean .the breakfast was continental good choice. hotel well placed for car hire companys the downside was the evenings only takeaways no restaurant just a bar but still good value for the money. the taxi to the hotel from airport 20 euro no wonder the taxi drivers are standing around in the airport complete rip off 20 euro! try and get a outside taxi firm to take you 14 euros only .

Room Tip: any room is ok

I booked via Expedia for around £40 for bed and breakfast, so nothing to complain about. The only pain was the 17 euro taxi ride for the half mile trip from the airport, apparently its a fixed rate, we could have travelled into Malaga centre for the same price. And it is impossible to consider walking to the hotel due to motorways and flyovers. Anyways the room was basic but okay, the air-conditioning was hopeless, so the room got hot, so I opened the window and the mosquito's filled the room...needless to say we didn't get a lot of sleep.

We spent one night at this hotel and were not disappointed. The room was lovely and the continental breakfast got us off to a good start the next day but, that's what one expects from the Holiday Inn with it's global standard. There's a good bar with excellent service and good prices for a beer etc. What we would warn traveller's about is nothing to do with the Hotel but with the taxi fare in getting there from the airport. It's no more than one kilometer away and only a 3 minute drive but it cost us 19 euros! The next day, we walked back to the airport to collect our car hire and it took no more than 10 minutes. It's quite a busy road, buts is very doable with care. I know these guys have to make a living, but we think they're taking the P somewhat hence our message.

To go to this hotel you can take the bus outside arrivalhalls- ticket cost is EUR3.If carrying luggage is not a great solution as you have to carry over a walkway to get to the hotel. Alternatively you can take a taxi, the cost is EUR15 which is pure robbery for 1 km. You can walk but again, an airporthotel should be providing transfers.

Area is rather dull but you can enjoy the typical express decor and your comfy room. Service is 5 star, and you can order food from outside the hotel. Free wifi for IHCcardholders. Hotel and rooms are clean, free tea&coffee, free welcomedrink and delicious breakfast. would be nice if tv was moveable when in bed.

I like the express concept and I have no complaints apart from the bad connection to get there.

Room Tip: think all rooms are the same

Spacious rooms, nice bathroom with bath. It's very near the airport. The hotel doesn't offer free shuttle, but there is a bus stop in front of hotel, it costs 3euros and it takes 5 min to the airport, from the airport you can catch a train which in 8-10min takes you to Malaga centre. We had an early flight, so hotel has a basic self service breakfast from 4.30 and a proper one from 7.30

We had one night here before our flight out. It is next to the airport. Hotel looks as if it was recently renovated. The wifi works well and is free if you are a rewards member (which is free). Breakfast is adequate with plenty of options.

This is a basic hotel, looking tired, cool reception from the front desk. Rooms were clean but basic. OK for a stop over especially when you arrive late at night and just need a bed to sleep. Having just had a frustrating experience getting from the airport to the 2 minute journey to the Hotel in a local taxi (Malaga Uni Taxi Tel. 952 32 00 00). We were informed by the Taxi driver that the 2 minute journey was a minimum charge 19 euros. He was sympathetic to our disgust but adament that this was the charge, take it or leave it! At 12.40am, tired and ready for bed we paid the fee begrudingly but later questioned with our Hotel whether this was the NORM in Malaga and the receptionist confirmed that it was. I feel this was a 'total RIP OFF' and would like warn anyone else travelling literally just A to B (to this Hotel) of this outrageous fee. 'Dick Turpin' at least wore a mask!
