“AWESOME VALUE NICE HOTEL!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

I always expect anything in Europe to be too small and too pricy. We were so surprised at the minimal price we paid and how updated, clean, hospitable and the size of the rooms. We were a little nervous because some of the surroundings were a little shady but the street the hotel was on was safe. There were a few restaurants but we were there on Sunday but most everything was closed. The hotel restaurant was super convenient and the food was good. We would stay there again!

In general terms is a hotel with good value for money, at least in October. Well situated, not far from the center just opposite the Museum of Contemporary Art. The only problem is the parking: just terrible even for an experienced driver and a middle sized car.

Our room was clean, modern and for the price we payed it was a perfect value. It's easy to walk to old town also to the marina. The guy at the reception was super super helpful. He answered all our questions and he gave us many suggestions. I would definitely go back there.

I was in Malaga in February and I stayed 5 nights at this hotel. Close to metro, I was able to travel to airport and bus terminal easily and visit other cities. Close to old town, restaurants and shopping was easy. It's clean and quiet.

Room Tip: Next door to metro/train

The rooms are OK, meaning spacious and clean. The bathroom, although spacious, had only a shower type 'drain in the floor', meaning the whole thing gets immediately inondated when you turn on the shower. But besides that, everything is up to Spanish 4-star standards.
Just the breakfast is somewhat below expectations: a bit unimaginative and the breakfast room is definitely too small.

The room was clean with plenty of storage space and a comfortable bed, bathroom spacious and clean. But why FOUR stars? Terrible welcome, poor and expensive to eat. No air-con that we could find, although it was October so not really necessary. If this had been 3 stars with a 3 star price I'd have been delighted; as it was I feel ripped off, also, registration was not smooth as it should be. Rooms are great but the hospitality needs work.

After touring through Andalusia for a couple weeks we had a flight back to Malaga and spent one night at this hotel. It was quite easily the worst hotel I have stayed at in the last few years and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. After booking through Splendia you would expect a certain level of quality but not one thing was right with this hotel. Of particular note was the moody staff and overwhelming smell of cat food that fills the building. But honestly I would be happy with this place if I were looking for a hostel because that what it appears to be a good hostel in a 4 star hotel's clothes that has only got there by ticking boxes (minibar, large rooms etc.)
THE BAD:
-Given smoking rooms when asked for non-smoking.
-Booked 3 rooms next to each other recieved 3 rooms each on different floors.
-Smell (cat food on some floors, cooked playdoh on others and smoke/disinfectant in the rooms.
-view was of nothing but the dried up river running through town.
-laminated sticky wood everywhere and pvc double glazing everywhere (with some cracked windows).
-dark everywhere and very dated design.
-air con doesn't work and tv is tiny and gets 1 channel.
-air con control hanging from the wall with wiring exposed in first room.
-cupboard door hanging from hinges and door stoppers loosened from the floor.


Basically no way this is a 4 star place. For a nice (not amazing but nice 4 star in malaga try the Molina Lario where the staff are wonderful and the food delicious! Also Splendia seems to have removed them from their listings so I imagine they have reassessed the quality of this hotel.
