Reviewed December 19, 2013

Stayed here for 1 nights after a late evening flight from the UK. Difficult to find if driving yourself as you have to go into Malaga before doing U turn and then back towards the airport. Rooms were good , nice bed and bathroom. Breakfast was free for all, given that we arrived at the same time as a coach party were having there breakfast prior to their departure. Overall , value for money and a good nights sleep in a basic hotel.

Located just 20 minutes from the city and very close to bus stop. you can reach the hotel easily in less than 10 minutes, ifyou alight from airport, through airport shuttle -line A. Dont forget to reimburse the ticket amount of 3 euro by exchanging the ticket in the front office.
Positives -Hotel is very good, neatly maintained, very comfortable for the couple and family. Has all the qualities and trademark of Holiday inn. Decent breakfast. Warm reception. Decent bedding. considering the cost of stay with free breakfast, i am sure this is best bet.
Negatives - No cooler or Air conditioner in the room. Though i noticed few have commented about this already, looks like hotel management intentionally dont want to spend money in this. Wondering the stay will be horrible in summer, if AC doesnt work. i was expecting some more items in breakfast. coffee was horrible.
I have been in holiday inn in other countries -US and singapore. i am usually amazed by the breakfast items, bedding, toilet items provided, quality of the reception. holiday inn-malaga falls short when i compare with other holiday inns. But i should be reasonable in my comment- holiday inn-malaga is the cheapest. i can tick this hotel for all the basic comfort - they cannot run business if they provide all the luxury i mentioned above for this cost.
Overall, i am happy with the stay!!. would recommend for everyone

I would never recommend this hotel. Although it is billed as an "airport hotel", it is not accessible from the airport except by a 15 euro, 5-minute taxi ride, or a bus ride and walk over the highway by pedestrian bridge. The location is abysmal, and the hotel is very run down. The staff seemed alternately friendly and rude.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel. Really.

Totally acceptable for a few hours of sleep at night: good rooms & comfort but no extras. Breakfast is horrible if you don't eat pastry: I only had coffee. Location is worse than expected: we thought it would be much closer to the airport, being an "airport hotel".

We stayed here for a week in mid-October 2013. We were searching for a hotel with a simple breakfast and wifi that we could use as a base for day trips from Malaga using our rental car. This hotel met all our needs, to include an English-speaking staff. However, if you arrive unprepared, you will be frustrated and/or disappointed. We wanted a hotel near the airport, as we have learned that you can always follow the signs to the airport in the rental car and eventually find your hotel. Unless you have lots of luggage and/or mobility problems, you can walk to the hotel or take the bus, which is about a kilometer from the terminal. If you do this, check out Google street maps and walk under the railroad bridge directly to the hotel. Previously writers have noted that it is also possible to drive this route, which essentially cuts through multiple parking lots. Taking the bus involves walking over a pedestrian bridge. If you are driving from the airport, again use Google street maps! The route, which uses one-way roads, is over 5 km and involves multiple traffic circles. We noted some street construction, so using GPS may not work properly. There is a gas (petrol) station next to the hotel. Parking was complimentary and we had no problems. As for free wifi, be sure to get an InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) Rewards account and link it to your reservation. (You can establish an IHG Rewards account online easily.) Otherwise, the cost for wifi is at least 5 Euros per day! Breakfast is basically cold cereal, sliced cheese and meat, and bread. Nothing fancy, but we expected exactly that. The staff was extremely helpful in directing us to banks, the post office, laundromats, groceries, etc. The only thing we wished we had was a small refrigerator in the room.

Very close to airport, unfortunately there is no courtesy bus and the location is a little complicated to get to. It was gone midnight when we picked up our hire car, so we were tired and it was dark but I had looked at googlemaps and printed off directions/maps as I knew from previous tripadvisor posters that it would be difficult. Basically you get onto the main road go up a junction, come back on yourselves and hope you take the right exit! We made it but my advice is to do your research.
(Some people had walked from the airport as it is very close but be mindful that it doesn’t have a proper footpath the whole way, again do your research especially if it will be dark when you arrive).

Once at the hotel the checking in was efficient and room was clean and tidy, a standard express type, perfect for a good nights sleep before continuing with our journey.

Breakfast was mayhem, perhaps if is not UK school holidays this may not be a problem

This would appear to be an Airport hotel, but is too far away to walk with suitcases (1 mile across moderately difficult route) yet taxi costs 15 - 20 euros. There is a bus service, but the bus frequently didn't stop. If looking for an airport hotel, would recommend something better value and just setting a taxi. The hotel from the outside is uninspiring concrete block next to a busy road and car hire lot.

There is no pool or facilities so hotel is ok for business.

Reception staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was pretty uninspiring, but was reasonable value, not that there seemed to be much other choice near the hotel.

The rooms are typical Holiday Inn Express and were clean and comfortable at the standard expected for this chain of hotels. The rooms were well insulated from outside noise, but you could hear people in adjoining rooms.
