We were en route to Almeria and stopped two nights Our prime reason for choosing the hotel (apart from Trip Advisor!) was its links to onward transport although it is a good hotel in its own right. It is situated adjacent to the railway station and is only five minutes from Malaga bus station. The ride in from the airport is about 20 minutes by frequent bus service - the bus leaves from outside Arrivals, get off at the railway station and you can't miss the hotel. The journey can also be done by train (three stops) but the bus leaves from just outside Arrivals and I have no idea of how easy it would have been to find the station at Malaga airport which is rather large and busy. It is an "avant garde" hotel with ultra-modern furnishings and fittings. We actually had two rooms as we were offered an alternative room (an upgrade in fact) after the first night because our room safe was not functioning and a technician was unable to fix it. It was one of these small but annoying problems which was superbly dealt with by reception - well done! The room was well furnished, well lit, comfortable with a good bathroom and well functioning air conditioning. Breakfast was excellent with a good selection of food but it might be worth noting that the restaurant does not open on Sundays until 07.30 which is on the late side for some travel. It is about a 20 minute walk to the centre of Malaga which we decided not to do at night. It is, however, easy (and fairly cheap) to take the train to a resort like Fuengirola for a cheap and fairly good meal - which we did. The hotel bar is quite small but there is an outside area which is available in good weather. The staff were, without exception, helpful and efficient and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would recommend the hotel on all counts but particularly to people who have transport connections to catch.
