“Good location, average hotel, needs a massive refurbishment.”
Reviewed 21 September 2011

My wife and I toured around the south of Spain in September. We stayed here for two days to see the sights in Malaga. Venecia is perfectly situated to acces all the tourist offerings and stroll to Malaga's beautiful beach. We have been using a website to get great deals on hotels and this one was no exception. We paid 102€ for two nights; a steal of a deal. We also paid for the breakfast in their on site cafe, at 4€ it was also a steal. Good food, great service. So keep in mind we do not feel we received bad value or are in any way disappointed. However...

The Venecia needs a massive upgrade. It lists it's self as a three star and it's far from that. It would be best described as an old two star. The paint is chipping and filthy. There are cigarette stains and burns in the rooms, despite listing it self as a non smoking hotel (which is extra funny as they placed a fresh clean ashtray in our room). The walls are paper thin; but the rooms at the back are at least free of street noise.

In all, if you can get a steal of a deal, do it. But if ou are paying more than 65€ a night, you good easily find better.

we stayed here prior to adjoining a cruise from the port. We chose the hotel for its location to the port and shopping area. We were not dissapointed as the hotel almost backed onto the port and crossing the road you entered the pedestrianised shopping center. The hotel was not the most modern but was very clean with a certain dated decor with large high ceiling rooms. We have stayed in nicer hotels but for location we couuldn't have found better. The shopping was as good as any british shopping center with squares and side streets worth exploring with lots of bars and tapas bars as well as museums and castles and the cathedral all adding to the atmosphere of this beautiful city. The price we paid for the hotel through Asda travel was £49 which was a bargain. We hope to return to this hotel but for a longer stay.

Room Tip: we got a corner room but a fron t room would be preffered

We had a fantastic trip of 4 days to Malaga. We stayed at Hotel Venecia.
The staff were very helpful, they provided a city map, places to eat, train timings, etc. The hotel had discount coupons for Benalmadena cable car, which was quite useful.
The room was clean and nice.
Internet was available in the corridor and charges were 0.50 euro for 10 minutes.
The breakfast was okay.
Would have been much better if they provided tea/coffee making facility in the room.
The location is fantastic as its at the start of high street.

The hotel Venecia is a very good budget hotel, perfect for a city break. by budget I am really only refering to the price we paid per night, as the rooms are clean and comfortably furnished. The bathroom is large and our's had a jacuzzi bath! Multilingual staff were welcoming and courteous throughout our stay.
Situated on the Alameda principal you will only be minutes away from the warren of streets in the historical centre in which to explore the sights, tapas and vino!
I have read that some people found this area to be noisy, we did not notice this outside of the weekend - our room was at the back and extremely comfortable.
The bus from and to the airport stops seconds away from the hotel entrance and the journey time is approx 20 mins and I would recommend keeping with the budget theme and using this, super cheap and efficient. Enjoy!

The Venecia as mentiond elsewere is in a great central position, oppisite the main shopping/restaurant area and is ideal for exploring the sophisticated city of Malaga.
I was suprised on arrival at the high quality of the hotel for the low price we had paid
and our room at the front of the hotel was very spacious both in the bedroom and the bathroom. The standard of fittings and cleanliness was very good. I found all the staff we encountered to be very helpful and friendly.
We had booked a one night stay on a B&B basis for a saturday night and had to leave the hotel at 8.30am and was suprised to find breakfast did not start until 9 am. When we mentioned this to the person on reception they without hesitation or fuss opened the restaurant for us and we were served by a cheerie young lady who gave us freshly squeezed orange juice, great coffee and some toasted french bread and jams.
The only drawback at night was the traffic noise from outside which went on all night, our friends had a side room and had the same problem due to the glazing being inadequate to soundproof the noise. If the hotel invested in some up to date double or triple glazing this would without doubt be the best place to stay in the city..
The only other drawback was the 24 euro charge for 21 hours public car parking next to the hotel.

My wife and I stayed at the Venicia a few times while in Spain. Stayed in both front and rear rooms and yes the rear rooms are quieter. The location was perfect as it's located at the entrance of "old town" , with all the buses at your door step. As a matter of fact the airport bus (linea or 19) stops right in front of the hotel! Easy walking to the train and main bus station. The staff were friendly. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel. I would go back again. I wish they had free internet as was the case in other hotels (not all)

The hotel is in a good location for access to the bus station. It sits on the main drag which is noisy and in my room I could hear some of this traffic noise and had to keep the window closed for maximum peace and quiet.
Overall the hotel is okay. I did not find the staff overly friendly nor did I find the room or the view pleasant. I would recommend for short stays but not for anything longer than two nights.
