Travel from Malaga to Granada

For various reasons I will be travelling to Granada via Malaga.

Which is the most direct/quickest mode of travel from the airport in Malaga, train or bus?

Once in Granada is travel around the city easy by bus? We will have to travel to the apartment which looks like about 2 miles from the bus station.

Thanks in anticipation.

From Malaga airport has a train every 30 minutes one when the frequency next to the train station is the bus, where you should take a bus to Granada, the trip takes 1:45 pm depart every hour from the early morning until 10 at night. You can check timetables www.alsa.es

Regarding the bus from the bus station in Granada out three lines of 10, 3 and 33, which run in different areas of the city

Thank you for the rapid reply.

Is the train from Malaga Airport direct to Granada train station or are there changes of train to be made?

If it is not clear.

Train from the airport to Maria Zambrano, the main train station in Malaga.

Exit the train station for the bus station almost next door. Bus to Granada, website as advised at #1.

Without your address in Granada, cannot advise bus or buses or whether taxi required.

Once at Granada you can look for the suitable bus lines. Best to study the map together with the specific routes shown under City buses in this town hall guide page:

There is no train to take you from Malaga to Granada. First you take a train to Malaga train station, cross the mall and get to Málaga bus station (the train and bus stations are next) There you should take the bus to Granada.

Tyro:

The best way to get to Granada from Malaga is taking the bus from the bus station. From the airport, you can take the Cercanias train or the Airport Express Bus Line A to the bus station.

We will be arriving from the US with a carry-on size suitcase (roughly 56 x 35 x 23 cm). Is there room on the bus for bags?

Purabi,

It is not very conveniant to get to the hotel Alixares from the bus station.

You would have to get the number 3 or 33 bus from the terminal to Gran Vía. From there it is about a 20 minute walk up a steep hill to the hotel.

Or you can connect onto the small 32 bus that goes up to the Alhambra that stops about 50 mtrs from where you get off the bus on Gran Via.

Imho a taxi would be a lot easier.
