“Convenient Setting to Visit a Beautiful City”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

This was our third short stay at the Ibis. We always like to stay here and spend at least a day visiting Malaga, which in my opinion, is one of the most under-rated cities. The old quarter (a five minute walk away) is beautiful and very relaxed. Wander around from around 6.30 p.m. and savour the Spanish atmosphere. Also, the Alcazaba shouldn't be missed.

The Ibis offers really clean comfortable rooms with a friendly English speaking service. The bar (and breakfast room) is very colourful and airy - it has a very nice feeling to it. The breakfast is good. For a low cost option for a very comfortable place to stay in Malaga I would choose this every time!

Your standard Ibis hotel, but with a better-than-average breakfast buffet at a very reasonable price. On the city centre fringes, so you can get the best of your night out coming back later to a quiet room. Definitely to recommend.

Visited as a group of 24. The hotel handled our late evening check in very quickly. Room was spacious with a lovely big shower which delivered water at a constant temperature. Basic toiletries provided. Everything was spotlessly clean. Quiet air conditioning didn't stop me from sleeping, as it has in many other hotels. here is some traffic noise so better to have a room facing the dry riverbed. Breakfast (Continental) was plentiful. Particularly liked the coffee pots and hot milk which could be used to make your perfect breakfast coffee. Very handy for all the Malaga sights and close to lots of restaurants, tapas bars, etc. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Dry riverbed facing rooms are quieter.

Short walk to old town centre. Very handy. Great breakfast buffet and decent price at 7.50 Euros. Neighborhood a bit rundown on this side of "dry river". Would not leave car parked outside and hard to find spot in any case. Underground parking is good under hotel at 11 Euros. But quite small considering size of hotel. It fills up fast especially on a saturday night.
Hotel walls paper thin and basic amenties. Big walkin shower was nice. Front desk was helpful, but some junior staff not able to speak english well enough which was a a surprise.
Overall good stay and good value for room especially its central location.

Room Tip: Get higher floor on river side for a view. The other side is not nice.

I have never stayed in iBis hotel before. I just have had that feeling that it is too basic. And how wrong I was!
We booked this hotel, as hotels were quite busy in Malaga and we needed to stay only one night and needed car park as well.
When I checked in, receptionist was very professional, helpful and a big welcome smile on her face.
I requested room as high as possible, and quiet room. She gave me room 459 which was on top floor, and last room on corridor. Quiet!

Room was great for short stay. reasonable, spacious room. Bed was double bed, and very comfortable. Pillows were very good as well. TV was bit small, but for short visit, managed to watch the news, and it was ok
internet speed was very good, better than in many 4-5 star hotels.
Shower room (no bath) was spacious enough, shower cubic was big enough to move comfortably around and shower pressure was good. Very practical, and clean Bathroom (Not tissues in the bathroom/but it is a basic hotel service)
Over all room was worth for Euro 65 per night (sglb usage) Laminated floor!. .I did not see safe box in the room?!However, I did not needed it in this time, so did not really look for it!
Rooms have air con as well. Did not needed it this time, so no idea how loud/quiet it is . Slept so well!

Lobby is basic, but clean, and there seemed to be also internet access.
Bar was basic, and cheap. two small piers were approx Euro 4, and Double espresso and two croissants approx Euro 3.50
Car par per 24 hours was Euro 11
Brfst was like a canteen brfst, and i think it costed Euro 7.50 per person,cereals, bread, fruit salad (a proper fruit salad, not from tin) bread and rolls, cheese,ham etc. Worth to have brfst here, as it is Buffet !
Location is handy.Took us 10 min to walk from Hotel to old town. Railway station is approx 15 min walk, and I am a tall guy, so walk fast.The main train station and Bus station are next to each other!

So, over all: cost effective place in Hart of Malaga.It is not 4 star, it is very clean, basic 3 star hotel with excellent bed and pillows, and shower .And on top of this, an excellent, helpful service over all in this the hotel.You cannot go wrong with this hotel ( I could believe you might have noise problems, if your room is next to LIFT).management really knows how to train their staff here! Congratulations

Room Tip: End of Corridors seems to be quiet rooms
