We stayed in Malaga for a couple of days post-cruise and chose the Barcelo because of it's location not too far away from the port. The hotel is inside the train station so is ideal if you have a train to catch the next morning. Train tickets are really cheap so we took a trip along the coast for a couple of hours, it's so convenient to be right in the station.
The hotel itself is quite quirky, it does look a bit like an Ibis but nicer. Staff at reception were very helpful, we were able to check in at 7am which was great for us. Room was really clean, bathroom was nice, and the black out curtains really worked! There was no noise either. We were quite high up so got a view of the sea in the distance.
There are plenty of nice places to eat in the station, and there are plenty of shops nearby.
We both liked Malaga, it's easy to find your way around, and there's some really interesting architecture.
I enjoyed our stay at the Barcelo and I'll definitely consider staying here again if we return to MalagaMore
