“Excellent location for excellent hotel”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We stayed three nights at Barcelo. Price-Value -ratio was most excellent, hotel staff was very accommodating and flexible.Hotel is very conveniently located next to railway-station (it took us 15 minutes to get from airport to our hotel, best record I've ever had). Beaches are about two kilometers away, close by subway offers good transportation within the city.

Modern hotel with well appointed, comfortable rooms. Free wifi. Situated right next to the main railway station with a large modern shopping mall within the complex. Underground car parking on site for €17 per 24hrs. We walked into the city centre (about 15 mins) and had a very nice meal close to the cathedral.

Although we weren't affected, queues could form at the reception desk. Air conditioning is a bit noisy, but there is a window to open if you prefer.

Overall, very pleasant, especially if you're looking to be close to the key transport links (airport is 15 min ride away on the Cercanias train €2.00 each way).

Modern, clean, fast checkin (English). Located in the train station, with a shopping mall. Our room was new, clean, great solid bed, totally awesome shower, internet sweet, and nice room lighting. Breakfast selections were yummy, clean and smoothly run with smiles about. This is a super modern, FUN hotel. There's a human slide but watch out if you wear a mini and heals because the landing strip is in the bar and the guys are waiting! Great place! We will return again and again. Cannot want to see their other locations.

Ideally situated for a city break; while just a short hop from La Malaguetta beach. No fuss, modern, quirky and clean. Also, sitting above the rail station - means access to the costa and further afield couldn't be better.

Very nice, modern hotel. Good ammenities, with modern bathrooms, ample towels, and good space. It features an unbeatable location -- directly on top of the central train terminal. The bus terminal (on the other side of the train station), is only about 200 meters away. If you want to use Malaga as a base to explore the Costa del Sol, this is a great launching pad. Superb front-desk service. Manuel especially went above and beyond his duty to make sure my stay was perfect.

Very modern and comfortable hotel with very helpful staff.

Beds are big and modern. bathroom is very ok.

For us it was very perfect location because hotel is located close to beaches.

But little, very little far from city centre.

This hotel was perfect for our short 2 night stay in Malaga as it is literally linked to the train station-please don't let this put you off- once inside you cannot tell at all. Rooms were very modern and provided everything you could want/need. Breakfast-beautiful!! We walked to all the sights from here.
