“Good, cheap hotel.”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

The hotel was very cheap and very clean, and I found the location good. I took the train from the airport and got off at the last stop and once I was in the city, I saw Ibis hotel first, then Novotel which is right next to Ibis Budget and it took me three minutes to walk to Ibis Budget. The staff at the reception was ok but I felt like they didn't really like communicating in English. When I wanted to book an excursion, the man didn't seem to know much about it even though he tried calling the tour company but there was no answer. I work at reception and always give as much information as I can, the man left me feel frustrated. He told me to come back tomorrow which I did and there was a nice woman who booked the tour for me. You have to book these tours in advance.

The room was very basic but very clean. You get what you pay for. Many TV channels but all of them in Spanish except for one news channel in English and RTL which is German. WiFi was free but could get very slow at times. They also gave me an adapter.

Hotel is on a good location. Street is not pretty but close to historic center. It takes about 15 minutes walk to historic center. Typical İbis Budget, clean, basic

But...
There is no door handle inside the toilet door. So when yo get into toilet you can't close the door properly

I have stayed twice during my holiday. First was 26-27 March, when I arrived hotel we checked in qickly. But second time, 2-3 April, there were two people waiting, ıt took 40 minutes to check in

Clean, well situated hotel. Only downside is the rooms are extremely hot even with the air con on full blast. Its my second stay here and id come back. As with most hotels here, there are higher prices for semana santa (holy week), which made it €65 a night, i found this a little expensive, but at the standard rate of €40, this is a great choice

As it's name suggests this is a Budget hotel. However it is great for a late night stopover right near the centre of Malaga. It is very well situated both for the Airport bus and the local train service to and from the airport; it is also just a few minutes walk to the bars and restaurantsof central Malaga and many of the interesting sites of the city. Its level of comfort is just sufficient for a one or two night stay. It is very competitively priced.

We were in Malaga for Champions League football match, this hotel was within easy walking distance of the stadium. Excellent value for money, rooms were clean, tidy and made very good use of the space, although there is very little privacy in shower and toilet cubicles. Staff were all very polite and helpful.

   If you just need a bed and a shower for 1 night at a low price (we paid 29 euros), then this will suffice. However, very hard to find and no sign posting. In the end after driving round and round we stopped and asked at Ibis Centro Hotel, which is much easier to spot, and luckily it was very nearby. There is free parking outside however demand is so high in the area that you need to tip locals to find you a spot. Otherwise there is hotel parking at 10 euros for 24 hours. It is within reasonable walking distance (20 minutes?), of main sights cathedral, Calle Larios, Cervantes Theatre etc.
   It was  basically a very small box room with bare floors and a hard mattress (suited us), although not pleasant stepping out from the shower straight out into the main room onto a floor which people would have walked on in their outdoor shoes! Basin is in the main room and no hairdryer, not even plastic drinking glasses, although the room did have a TV. For info there is a lift. Hotel and room very clean. Breakfast was only 4.5 euros but we didn't partake.
