Really nice hotel which is easily located at the train station en shopping center. Leaving the airport of Malaga, just take the train and after a couple of stops you are at the hotel. There are people who say the don't like the design etc. but is i just your own taste. I like the design of the hotel. The rooms are nice, not to small. The windows are not your traditional size windows, they are a little smaller.
Breakfast is nice, i have seen better (maybe i am spoiled), but overall a nice hotel which i would visit again!

We had a great time staying at this hotel even if for two nights. The hotel is on top of Maria Zambrano train station, and train runs directly from Malaga airport (AGP). The ticket is a few euros and takes 15 minutes to get there. It's about 20 minutes walk to the centre. Convenient for any trips outside Malaga (like Nerja, Torremolinos or Marbella). The beach is a short, 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel, but since it's close to the port the water is not very clear (also quite dark sand). It's much better to go to the beach on the other side of the port. The rooms are very modern, really big beds, enjoyed the armchair that folds back and extends, so you can use it for resting. View from the hotel is not great, but it's really a purpose built hotel on top of the train station at the end of the day. Reception staff was alright, but not going out of their way to help you, felt like they are doing me a big favour, and I'm there just to fill in the free rooms. If you don't care about little details as this, you will enjoy it.

we stayed at barcelo for 5 days in mid may and it was perfect . the hotel offers modern and clean rooms. the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. the hotel is attached to main train station which we used ever day to travel within spain. as well there are numerous restaurants and cafes very close to hotel. a short walk will take you to the city centre which is both interesting and has great dining in a very safe location. barcelo is well priced and well exceeded my ecpectations. i will most definitely stay here again and have already sent family and friends there, they all agree that barcelo is amazing.

Central location when you arrive from the airport in Malaga via train.
A 15 minute train journey takes you from the airport to hotel as the hotel is just outside the train station.
Nice new hotel with an eye catching slide from the 1st floor to the lobby ... which I tried!
City centre is a 10 min walk from hotel.
Very clean and very modern.
Only negative comment is that the free wi-fi did not work.

We stayed one night in Malaga on the way back from holiday in Otivar, Spain. Fantastic room, massive bed, bath, wet room - all spotlessly clean. Couldn't have been better!
