Reviewed May 9, 2013

I stayed one night, the hotel is located next to the very modern train station in Malaga. The hotel is quirky and spacious from rolling bathroom door to the slide you can get from first floor to the reception. The breakfast spread was probably the best i've ever seen in a hotel.

Only negatives I found was A/C in the room is from ducts and it was difficult to cool down the room and also the bottles of soft drinks and beers in the mini bar were filthy(hopefully this was just our room)

Highly recommend this hotel

My wife and daughter (17) stayed here for 3 days over the May Day Bank Holiday.

the hotel is an 8 minute train ride from Malaga airport which was ideal as the flight landed at 9.30pm.

You can be on the sea front within 10 minutes.

We rented bikes for 3 days and used the cycle paths to go both North and South of Malaga as well as into the historic centre.

The rooms are very modern, clean and fun. The slide ('toboggan' as the staff refer to it) summarises the feel of the hotel.

The breakfast was excellent.

The service was excellent although check in seems to take longer than usual.

The area around the hotel is less busy than the historic centre including the evenings.

I'd definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: high floors are quieter

This is a a lovely modern hotel in an excellent situation next to the main station in Malaga just a short train ride from the airport. The bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable with great bathrooms. The reception area is very funky with a slide (which has to be tried!) from the first floor to the bar area. It's a 15-20 minute walk or a €5 taxi ride to the centre and the old town. The staff are very friendly and helpful too.

Just back from a long weekend to Malaga with friends and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Seamless journey from airport to hotel via short train journey therefore very convenient both from the point of view of getting there and also conveniently situated for making the 15-20 minute walk down to the port or into the older part of Malaga. Lots of places nearby to have that early morning coffee/croissant/pastry so didn't eat in the hotel at all as we stayed out all day, only coming back after we had had our evening meal.

Rooms spacious and clean as were the bathrooms and although the hotel is in the main railway station it was very quiet - not even much road noise.

Staff at reception were very helpful and friendly.

A few small gripes if I was to be very picky - no spyhole in the bedroom doors, the room to room phone wasn't working properly, there was no other mirror other than the one in the bathroom and the aircon in either room didn't seem to want to go down below 21 degrees so quite warm at night; don't know how that would feel in the height of summer.

However these were only minor problems and did not in any way spoil our break.

Would definitely recommend this hotel especially for ease of getting to from the airport.

Great location over the main railway station, easy transport links, good food, great conference venue. Very helpful staff. I had an incident which was an accident and the staff did there very best. I would say that the bar area is poorly lit at night. The slide is great fun though !

The hotel is connected to the Malaga railway station. Very easy to reach, also with the local trains from the airport. Very modern interior, and nice and clean rooms. Great breakfast. A small bar/cafe in the lobby. A walk to the city centre takes 15 - 20 minutes. The hotel is a good choice for meetings. I would not choose this hotel for weekends or holidays, as it has no swimming pool and small areas outdoors.

The hotel is well placed attached to the train station & minutes to the Bus station which makes getting to & from the airport easy.It is a 10-15 minute walk to central Malaga.This is a hotel aimed at the business traveller, quite modern & minimalist.We didn't use the bars/ lounges they didn't appeal.The room was adequate with comfortable beds & good bathroom.The staff on Reception were very friendly & helpful & went out of their way to help retrieve our suitcase which another passenger walked off with at the airport.We didn't have breakfast opting for a drink in the local cafes.
