We first stayed in this Hotel in Sept 2011 and returned this year for 2 separate stays in Sept. (we had a trip to Seville in between). We took the train from the airport and the hotel is a 5 minute walk from the station. Check-in was quick and efficient and all our room requests were met. We had a room on the 5th floor overlooking the Port. This a personal choice as we love watching the comings and goings of this working port. If you want a quiet room then request an inside one.The rooms are large, bright and airy with lovely bathrooms. I cannot agree with previous reviews who say that breakfast is not good. There is an amazing choice and we were given pots of coffee and hot milk and usually manage 3 cups each from them.You can even have a glass of Cava. What we ate for breakfast kept us going all day and we only needed a small snack late in the afternoon to keep us going to dinner. We used local transport to get around the city. You can buy bus cards at the Tabacs which last for 10 journeys. We will definately be returning to Monte Malaga on our next visit to this wonderful city.
