Which hotel? Overnight stay in Malaga before morning flight

Hi all

Any advice on which hotel to pick for an overnight stay in Malaga before taking the plane the next morning? Flight is at 9:35 am back home.

I read that Holiday Inn which is in close proximity to the airport is not practical since highways cannot be crossed and a taxi ride will cost a flat rate of 20 euros even for a 3 minute drive.

We are two adults and will not have a car.

Thanks!

I would stay in nearby Torremolinos, or Malaga itself and get the train to the airport on your departure day. Train fare 1.70€ per person. Hundreds of hotels to choose from. Trains start at 05.30 from Malaga and run every 20mins taking around 12 mins from Malaga a little more from Torremolinos.

The Barcelo at Maria Zambrano is usually recommended. Have breakfast, slip downstairs, catch the train, at the airport in ten minutes.

Added advantage that you will have some time in the middle of Málaga to see our wonderful city the evening before.

Thanks guys! Which train is that and does it have a stop right at the airport? Do I need to get tickets in advance?

The local train, called Cercanias, goes from Malaga station to Fuengirola. There is a stop at the airport only a few minutes walk to the terminal. Buy your tickets from the machine at the station, there is an English language option.

Don't buy Cercanias tickets the night before because they are time limited. You can see where the train leaves from and check how to buy the tickets though if you wish !
