Malaga Hotel Picasso
Ranked #20 of 89 Hotels in Malaga
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 April 2009

Stayed in hotel Picasso only 1 night (1.5 day), wish it was longer though. Already planning to go back for a longer relaxing stay in the garden by the pool.
Chose this hotel based on reviews knowing that we will need some relaxing after 3 days of sightseeing and wanting to be close to the airport.
It's approx 30 minutes from Malaga centre on local bus no. 10. YOu can get of on either of the 2 stops in Guadalmar - on road Manuel Curros Enriguez or Rogelio Oliva.
It's 10 minutes to the airport by taxi (19 Euros), or you take bus no. 10 and then change for no. 19, just make sure you are taking the 19 in the correct direction and not back into Malaga city centre.
Hotel Picasso has only 11 rooms, its extremely clean and full of lovely antique furniture. Each room is quite individual and there is a "common room" - sitting room for the guests with a flat screen TV and hi-fi system (all rooms have TV as well). The whole place has a very homey feel to it.
Don't know if you can get room service there, but think food generally is served only at dinner time between 8-10pm, when a special person comes from outside to be the chef/waitress. Had a nice paella and chocolate mouse desert there. Didn't eat breakfast as it's 17 euros for 2, while went down the road towards the sea front where in a cafe/bar next to a shop - Tiena Ana, had breakfast for 8 euros for 2.
The hotel is in a rich looking, villa neighbourhood. Not much to do there, apart from going for walks and to the beach 5 minutes away. Abviously easy access for sightseeing Malaga as well.
Ideal place for pure relaxation and easy and quick access to the airport.
Highly recommended.

First I was very distracted of where the taxi is taking me on. Later, while entering the hotel, i saw everything like on photos on the website - the pool, garden, nice reading room. It has most of the "National geography" magazines in there! The room is clean and very nice. No 9 has a shower, not the bath, but it's ok for me. Each room has entrance to the garden or pool, and design is very nice.

Though, the dinner i had during one night stay was... strange. Picadillios (soup with bread and onions) was made entirely in the microwave, as well as Lasagne bolognese! As i was the only person dining that evening, and that microwave sound was really awful to me.

Otherwise i do really recommend you this place for a night or two staying in Malaga.

I paid 53.5Eur/night for one night at the end of October, 2008

Conveniently close to Malaga airport, the Picasso offers quiet, clean accommodation for one night. However, my room was small, as was the double bed; perfectly adequate, though, for me as a single traveller. Nevertheless, it was reasonably comfortable and there was a room safe, although no bath. The pool and garden area are excellent for a hotel of this size. The bar is not staffed and you have to persuade the receptionist to leave his/her post to bring you a drink; the prices were reasonable. There did not appear to be any restaurants nearby, other than some chiringuitos that were closed. Therefore, eating in was the only option, if planning to have a glass of wine and not drive. The food was OK, not memorable, and served by friendly staff. Breakfast was similarly average. Parking is on a quiet residential street. I might stay there again if I had to but am more likely to look slightly further afield for something that offers more. However, that could be hard at the £62 they charged me for B&B. On balance, I'd probably opt for the Picasso if the double beds were bigger.

We wanted a hotel near the airport as we were supposed to land at about midnight but our flight was delayed by 2 hours. After waiting for our luggage and getting our rented car we arrived just before 3am but the lady who waited for us could not have been more gracious about it. At that time of night we were relieved our hotel was so near; the choice was perfect: only 3 minutes' drive away. Because it is so near the airport we didn't expect Hotel Picasso to be so nice and quiet. We had a large, comfortable and spotless room (and a bowl of fresh fruit on the table). It is a beautiful location with a lovely garden and swimming pool. The staff were charming. We brought our TomTom and would not have found the hotel without it.

Stayed in the Hotel Picasso in Guadalmar for two nights in May 07. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone with a short stopover wanting to just chill out as pool area and garden are beautiful and wonderfully maintained. This is a small short stopover hotel only as its location is not close to Malaga town but the barrio of Guadalmar is nice for wandering around, the beach small and unspoilt with two wonderful local seafood restaurants but thats about it. Perfect for the end of the holiday if you want to fly home well and truly relaxed.

The Hotel Picasso is very quietly situated in Guadalmar, and with very friendly and helpful staff, who are multilingual, make this an ideal relaxing location. It was refreshing to still be able to have a breakfast as late as 10.00am if you had previously had late night, but the service starts at 8.30am. The evening meal if taken was very good and well priced with a varying menu. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The only thing I would add is if you do not have a car and do not wish to use the local bus service which we found to be very good then you should consider a hiring a car.

needed a room to stay one night before my flight back to madrid and found this place by mistake. didn´t have a reservation but was lucky to find a room.
the hotel has a pool and hot tub. very recommended, clean and neat.
ate dinner at the hotel and it was great!
all in all - if you are looking for a clean small hotel near malaga but without the noise, this is it. not too expensive too - was about 70 Euro.
