“Great location to explore downtown Malaga”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed just the one night at the hotel Tribuna in Malaga. The location of the hotel is just ideal ... next to the dried up riverbed on the edge of the old city centre. The service at the hotel is excellent and staff is very friendly. Rooms very clean and rather spacious ... We booked a single and one double bedroom for only 65 € which was a true bargain. Will surely keep this hotel in the back of our mind when visiting Malaga again ...

Recently stayed at Tribuna Dec 16th-24th. My daughter was there going to school and turning 21 so I came to spend her 21st birthday with her in Malaga. The hotel's location was perfect and not perfect at the same time.. Let me explain. Hotel Tribuna is right in the Centre so I could actually walk everywhere, Tapas, bars shopping, food, drinks and the beach. Now the down side is from midnight to 5am you can hear all the party goers either on the way to the clubs or on the way home from the clubs. My room was 103 right on the main street 2nd floor. right outside the hotel were steps where it seems like eveybody meets to head out for the night and at 5am this is where they hug/kiss and say goodbye. All you hear is scooters, cars, horns and laughter all night long. Also the beds were like sleeping on solid rock. But for 8 days i sucked it up. Oh and the smell was not an issue. i think I did smell odors only 1 afternoon. No biggie. I live in NY city. My daytime activities wore me out enough to sleep hard. For those traveling to Malaga from other countries Malaga is one of the few cities that still participate in Siesta. So be prepared if you thought you were going to shop all afternoon. Most retailers pull the gate down promptly at 2pm until about 7-8pm. then its FIESTA time. Tapas and spirits!!!! Gracias.

Room Tip: rooms 103 is great.loud but great. you can stand on the balcony too see down the streets and all the...

Well, I would not recommend this hotel. First of all, the smell in our room and in the corridor was quite unpleasant. The room itself was small. Moreover, our room was on the 4th floor, apparently, close to some cleaning equipment storage. Cleaning maids were quire noisy early in the morning.
What is good about this hotel is its' location - just 5 min walk from the main shopping area.

We only stayed for 4 nights, and we wanted something reasonably priced, this fit the bill! The booking site we used was rubbish, said we got a 73% discount on the room... If that was the case i feel sorry for anyone paying full price! The room was basic but clean and well looked after, very much like a travelodge. The aircon was amazing and much needed! The location was ok. Looked dodgy but literally round the corner from the centre of town. The whole city had a smell which unfortunately entered our room on occasion. Not nice. Didn't use the restaurant as so many places to eat in the centre no need. Quiet at night, didn't bump in to many other guests all round warrants its 3 star rating. Wouldn't stay again as i wouldn't visit malaga again, did what we wanted to do in 4 days!

Very small rooms. Doubles have a small bath, twins have showers, very slippy. The room we were in (210) had old windows and we could hear EVERY passing car and any conversations from passers-by. Draughty, and cold. Hate to think of middle of winter, or middle of summer!! Air cond./ heating did not work, so woke up to REALLY cold room.
Breakfast was awful. The "hot" food looked disgusting, and the cold food was passible."Hot" water for tea was lukewarm. Small cups. Only 2 slices of bread to toast when we arrived and no more brought for others arriving while we were eating or after we left. Service was absent at breakfast.

Room Tip: Would advise against chosing ANY room!!
