“Very good value.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Stayed here for a long weekend.

The prices where so low we had prepared ourselves for low standards.

How wrong we where. The room was a bit small, but very well designed and spotless.
The staff where very friendly. To the point of charging my phone on their laptop, as I had forgotten my adaptor, and lending us a bottle opener! Maps where produced and written on showing us the train station. That saved us a lot of money.

If you want the slight down side...........
The bed is thin. I personally would of started to have some back problems' if I stayed longer.

The first night the shower was lovely. The other days we used it was powerful but with a mind of its own. Freezing cold then normal then very hot. We worked round it and found it funny and a challenge.
People with children might not of found this as funny as we did.

Room Tip: We where on the fifth floor and had very little noise. The view was terrible but the graffiti oppos...

Arriving from Granada, and having 8 hours before our flight, this hotel, at Euro 30, was excellent value and functional - we parked the car in the underground secured carpark under the hotel, checked in within 5 minutes, and were taking a snooze and shower in our room within 10 minutes. Amazing value and indispensible for a family trip

Ibis budget hotel in Calle Calvo is a budget traveller's heaven. Located just within 3-5 minutes walking distance to the plaza constitution and historic downtown, the hotel offers spacious double bed rooms with shower and toilet attached, is extremely clean with good room service, helpful and friendly reception, basic, decent breakfast and fast room internet connection. The neighborhood is calm and safe. Since it is very close to old town and port area, there are lot of eating options nearby. In short a very conveniently located, affordable and quality place to stay and explore Malaga. Been there recently with my wife. Highly recommended.

Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to travel on a budget. The staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was adequate, about what we expected. Everywhere clean and tidy, rooms cleaned and fresh towels provided daily. Good night sleep had by all!

Stayed here after being in Fuengirola but needed to be close to the airport as an early flight next morning The location of this hotel is amazing - right in the heart of Malaga! El Corte Ingles is round the corner (with a supermarket in the basement) FNAC is opposite and the train station (Centro-Alameda not Maria Zambrano the main station) is very close also, first train to Aeropuerto at 0520! - what more do you need. Rooms are compact and basic but everything is there and as usual with accor very clean and tidy. Why pay more? Staff all seemed very nice and were multilingual. One gripe but this is common to lots of hotels i find why are the only English-language channels always BBC World, CNN or both - what about a channel such as BBC Entertainment? News all the time is very boring!!
Now about the floors - hotel has 4 floors (but only 1 lift?) but becuase of how it is designed (there is a parking garage underneath) the first floor is really more like an upper ground, the level not being the same full height as normal 1st floors away from street level (i hope that makes sense) If ground is 0 this is more like 0.5 rather than 1 if thats easier. Now this is like being on the ground floor in that you hear the street noise all the time and i could also hear cars crossing ramps in the car park below. This was not a problem for me on this ocassion as it normally would be (unlike where i'd just been see my previous review!) as i had an early start and never really sleep in such circumstances anyway so i didn't mind as long as i could rest which i did. I would like to stay here again and If i was to get a 4th floor room towards the end of the corridor i hope that would be fine. Another Ibis told me you could make requests when you book online but i've never found out how to do that? If the hotel read this could you advise me of your e-mail address so maybe i could do it like that next time?
Looking forward to my next stay already :)

Room Tip: Avoid the First Floor as it is really an upper ground rather than a 'proper' 1st floor.

Stayed here for three nights at the end of November, the room was adequate for our needs, the bed was comfortable and the shower powerful with plenty of hot water which was good, only downside about this place is parking! It costs €10,90 a night to park in the underground car park which is not advised on booking or anywhere on the ibis website, I even sent an email asking what parking arrangements they had but they didn't reply so discovered the charge upon arrival, the parking on the street is next to non existent as several cars seemed to stay in these and never move during our whole stay, now to the positives, the hotel has free wifi which can be logged into with a username and password provided at reception, the centre of Malaga is 10 mins walk away and a supermarket is 4-5 mins away from the hotel, it can be abit difficult to get to the hotel as the road system is a little confusing but as we had google maps on an iPhone, we managed to get to and from the hotel pretty well in our car, reception staff are friendly and advised us to get tickets to the Alhambra in Granada in advance which was correct, thank you for the advice! If I was to visit malaga again I would properly book this hotel due to the cheapness but make sure I possibly came without a car.
