“Good value for a quick stopover”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Booked this for the first night of a driving holiday round Andalucia. Flight got in at 10pm so we decided to pick the car up the following morning.
Beware that if you take the bus as the hotel advises, it is indeed very close but still pretty hard to find! The helpful bus driver dropped us off in what looked like the middle of nowhere and indicated that we had to cross the motorway-type bridge to find the hotel. That took us to a retail park - a Makro, a Toys R Us but we couldn't see the hotel. A few minutes walk and we came upon it, badly lit and side on to the road making it really hard to spot.
Having said that it was convenient, clean and efficient.
And it turned out our car hire place was right next door! If you do the same thing, check where yours is because you might save yourself a trip back to the airport for the car hire courtesy bus.

Is located at maximum 1 km from the airport...but all taxis will charge you with minimum 20 euro, and if you arrive at 1.00 in the morning you have no choice... By walking is not an option!
The breakfast is only to have something in stomach, the coffee is horrible...disappointed...

Room Tip: choose other hotel, for 20 euros you can have all the Malaga hotels, in 20 minutes...

The hotel staff were pleasant and helpful, and allowed us to store our bikes safely in the store room. The breakfast was excellent. The main drawback is that there is no safe walking route to the airport, it involves crossing a fast very busy roundabout. We'd intended to check out the airport in the evening so we knew exactly where to go, but decided against risking our lives with the traffic whizzing round the roundabout. We found it astonishing that the budget for the expensive road network around the airport didn't provide for a bridge, subway or pedestrian crossing. We cycled there in the morning and felt reasonably safe as we were then part of the traffic.

The air conditioning in our room wasn't working, which we discovered just before getting into bed, so we had a choice of a hot and stuffy room or opening the window to the noisy traffic. Poor food in the restaurant: veg noodles incorporated just a few thin strips of peppers for veg and the chocolate crepe was so tough I had great difficulty cutting it.

Dear Scottish_Hosteller,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your comments. We understand that having a comfortable stay is important and it sounds like we fell below your expectations. We are sorry for any inconvenience you experienced due to the air conditioning. We were disappointed to read that when you visited the restaurant you did not find it to your tastes, we will review for possible modifications so to better accommodate our guest in the future. While we understand that your stay was not 100% satisfactory, we would hope that you would give us another chance to make your stay as best as it can be.

If there is anything we can do to make your next stay more comfortable, please do not hesitate to ask the Manager on Duty.

Sincerely,

Ferdinand G.

We stayed here for one very short night before our long weekend in Seville & Granada. It's a hotel around 1km from the airport and as we hired a car we did not have any issues with expensive taxi's. Breakfast was due to start at 07:30 at the weekend but they very helpfully started it early for us which was greatly appreciated. It's cheap and cheerful - no complaints!

I booked via Expedia for around £40 for bed and breakfast, so nothing to complain about. The only pain was the 17 euro taxi ride for the half mile trip from the airport, apparently its a fixed rate, we could have travelled into Malaga centre for the same price. And it is impossible to consider walking to the hotel due to motorways and flyovers. Anyways the room was basic but okay, the air-conditioning was hopeless, so the room got hot, so I opened the window and the mosquito's filled the room...needless to say we didn't get a lot of sleep.

We spent one night at this hotel and were not disappointed. The room was lovely and the continental breakfast got us off to a good start the next day but, that's what one expects from the Holiday Inn with it's global standard. There's a good bar with excellent service and good prices for a beer etc. What we would warn traveller's about is nothing to do with the Hotel but with the taxi fare in getting there from the airport. It's no more than one kilometer away and only a 3 minute drive but it cost us 19 euros! The next day, we walked back to the airport to collect our car hire and it took no more than 10 minutes. It's quite a busy road, buts is very doable with care. I know these guys have to make a living, but we think they're taking the P somewhat hence our message.
