We stayed in this lovely hotel for 3 nights at the beginning of our trip around Andalusia and again for 1 night a week or so later before departing by train for Valencia. Our initial reason for booking at the Barceló, Malaga was its location right next door to the Maria Zambrano train station but it offered so much more than we ever expected.
The reception staff were friendly, efficient and helpful and we soon found ourselves in our comfortable, spotlessly clean room. The decor is modern and very stylish and the rooms have everything you need except, and this is only a very small detail, a hot beverage station (kettle and cups etc), which admittedly seems to be absent in most of the Spanish hotels we stayed in.
We booked in on a bed only basis so can't comment on the breakfast. However, there are great pavement cafes just over the road from the hotel where a delicious breakfast is available for just a few euros.
Although the hotel is not in the old part of the city, it is very easy to get there, as we did each evening. There is a bus service every ten minutes from the next block that on your return, stops right outside the hotel (one way road system).
Many of the car rental companies have offices in the mall adjoining the hotel (we used Avis, but there are others) and you can arrange to pick up and drop off your vehicle there, which is very convenient especially if, like us, you are embarking on a road trip.
The Barceló, Malaga is more business than leisure hotel and has a conference centre and very trendy bar area but this didn't detract from our stay and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking for great accommodation in Malaga.
