Reviewed 3 May 2014

The wife and I stopped here for our first visit to Malaga. Getting off the bus from the airport it's just a pleasant stroll to the hotel.
Staff are all extremley pleasant and the rooms were very good - what comfy beds!
Take one of a few bridges that go over a kind of storm way and you're right in the heart of the action.
We paid for breakfast as we went- buffet style- which meant you could help yourself to fill you up. Good quality cereals, breads, cheeses and cold meats available and help yourself coffee to set you up for the day.
The bar got quite busy at night which is a good sign that the prices aren't extortionate like some hotels - in fact it was about the avergae for InTown.
All the staff were very pleasant and the hotel is kept clean and tidy.
For the price we paid it was a bargain!

Room Tip: Ask for as high a room as you can- the walkway outside the hotel can sometimes have people talking w...

This is a good budget hotel. We were on the third floor and looked out to the front with the dried up riverbed and graffiti. The staff were lovely and very helpful and the hotel is spotless. We had booked the buffet breakfast and there was a lovely selection. Its in a very good situation if you are coming from the airport on the train. Its only a five minute walk from Malaga Centro station exiting by Avendida Andalucia you turn right walk to traffic lights look down by the river side and you see the hotel. The train is only 1 Euro 75 on the train from airport very good value. Cross the bridge from the hotel go up street opposite and it takes you right into town in 5 minutes. Would probably return here again

Room Tip: Third floor facing front

Stayed here for a long weekend.

The prices where so low we had prepared ourselves for low standards.

How wrong we where. The room was a bit small, but very well designed and spotless.
The staff where very friendly. To the point of charging my phone on their laptop, as I had forgotten my adaptor, and lending us a bottle opener! Maps where produced and written on showing us the train station. That saved us a lot of money.

If you want the slight down side...........
The bed is thin. I personally would of started to have some back problems' if I stayed longer.

The first night the shower was lovely. The other days we used it was powerful but with a mind of its own. Freezing cold then normal then very hot. We worked round it and found it funny and a challenge.
People with children might not of found this as funny as we did.

Room Tip: We where on the fifth floor and had very little noise. The view was terrible but the graffiti oppos...

Arriving from Granada, and having 8 hours before our flight, this hotel, at Euro 30, was excellent value and functional - we parked the car in the underground secured carpark under the hotel, checked in within 5 minutes, and were taking a snooze and shower in our room within 10 minutes. Amazing value and indispensible for a family trip

Ibis budget hotel in Calle Calvo is a budget traveller's heaven. Located just within 3-5 minutes walking distance to the plaza constitution and historic downtown, the hotel offers spacious double bed rooms with shower and toilet attached, is extremely clean with good room service, helpful and friendly reception, basic, decent breakfast and fast room internet connection. The neighborhood is calm and safe. Since it is very close to old town and port area, there are lot of eating options nearby. In short a very conveniently located, affordable and quality place to stay and explore Malaga. Been there recently with my wife. Highly recommended.
