“Hotel for short stay”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

This hotel is cheap and situated close to the public beach. Staff is very helpful, but one of them don't speak English. Hotel was very clear. Air condition worked in some of the rooms. In the reception you can borrow an iron or order a taxi. You can get here from the local airport by bus or taxi.

One of the cheapest hotels in Malaga providing private ensuite rooms. It's 24hr so can be noisy with other guests arriving during the night and the charges for using the kitchen are unclear; otherwise clean, friendly, conveniently located, and affordable.

Stayed in Hotel Solymar 3 nights in october in our andalusian round trip.Arrived very late at night picked a taxi from airport payed 20 euros.Check in went fine night receptionist and actually all of them were really friendly and helpful.Rooms are fine cleaniless were not a problem and because we stayed outside almost all day perfectly suited for our needs.Beach couple of minutes walk Malaga centre more than 20 minutes but we used local buses also to get to the cenre because weather was quite hot at that time.Market and shops nearby just if you need anything.Lovely bars and restaurants to have breakfast or any meals.What we liked most is the location because is outside from center but still easy to get there and the beach was great probably not the most beautiful but for couple of days it was great.Would stay again in Hotel Solymar with no doubt.

Stayed with my husband for 4 nights in October and would recommend. For a 2 star hotel it offers excellent value, it is about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Malaga but there are buses if needed and the walk is flat and along the beach. All areas are very clean, our room had a bath, bidet and shower, towels were changed as needed, we also had a very efficient fridge in the room, ideal for keeping drinks cold or snacks, the hotel does not have a restaurant but does offer a kitchenette with microwave. There are good restaurants in the area and a market where fresh produce can be bought. Wi-Fi is available at a cost of 3 euros for 24 hours, reception appeared to be manned 24 hours, all staff were friendly and helpful.

I stayed in hotel in July 2013. Room was perfect, everything you need. Towels, shower gels, aircondition, tv-satelite. Hotel has no restaurant (I knew it) but there is great selections of spanish cafeteries just 2 min walk. There is also spanish market next to it and bus to city centre 2 mins from hotel (5min ride) or 25 min beach walk. Will recomend to normal tourist looking reasonable price with clean enviroment. Staff very friendly - Antonio speaks English, very helpfull.

My sister and I stayed in Hotel Solymar for one night. It is about 20 minutes walk from the centre of town, and although we didn't know Malaga at all before going, it was good to walk around the edge and find the less touristy places. Don't worry when you see the rather brown grey beach on your way into town, as it does get better toward the centre by the harbour.

The hotel itself is plain and simple. As far as we're aware, there is no restaurant or breakfast facilities. This hotel is great if you want to explore the town surrounding it. It was very clean and the staff were friendly. There were 2 hotel receptionists over the 24 hours we were there. One, who was younger spoke the best English and was incredibly helpful as to which buses we could take to and from the centre of town, as welll as telling us where to take the bus to Granada from.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to explore Malaga and especially if they want to practice some Spanish and see the Malaga that the locals see.

The Solymar is a small Hotel one block from the beach. Relatively quiet and easy to reach from the airport. Good connection by public bus into the old centre. Rooms are nice, clean and simple. The Hotel staff is extremely friendly and parking in a secured carpark is available against a small fee. Would definitely use the Solymar again.
