Really lovely hotel bright airy with modern child friendly interior design which has a child friendly massive slide from first floor to ground. As we were a family of 4 with a 4 yr old and 2 yr old who absolutely loved the slide.The suite we stayed at had a fantastic modern designed bathroom with seperate shower and jacuzzi bathtuband seperate toilet are within the bathroom cordoned off with a sliding mirrored see through door. This was for us the highlight as we were travelling from Granada back to Malaga on our way home and we were doing a quick tour of Malaga so the jacuzzii was a plus point. Breakfast was good and we have no complaints. In Europe you wont find room kettles and tea making facilities so be prepared for this! Our suite did not leave much space to walk in after the sofa bed was opened up for us so it really is suitable for a nightsrest only. THere is plenty of communal sitting areas which are not busy so its not too bad.

This chic hotel is very trendy, nicely designed and modern looking rooms. It is next to the train station which makes it convenient as a stopover. There is a mall next to it but I didn't get to visit .. Walking to the new beach walk area(another hip and trendy place with shops and eateries) took about 25 min(slow stroll)

Breakfast was very sumptuous and tasty. Only con was the high price as compared to other places in Spain that I went to

This hotel is actually a part of the new and modern railway station in Malaga, so the location is perfect if you arrive by train. Or even better if you arrive by rent a car as we did. There is an entrance to the hotel just a few steps away form the different rent a car offices. We had a room on the seventh floor with a nice view of this part of Malaga. The room was very clean and functional with motorized sunshades to keep the direct sun out. The safe deserves a special mention because it was a spacious drawer to be pulled out instead of the conventional type. Very convenient. Why hasn't anyone thought of this before!! The minibar was also high up, so one doesn't have to bend down to reach things. Good! The check-in was taken care of by a very friendly and effective lady. Breakfast was very good, and there is also a very good dinner restaurant at the hotel. The old historic centre of Malaga can be reached on foot in twenty minutes. If you don't want to walk, there are plenty of taxis just outside the hotel. The airport is also within easy reach by a ten minutes' train journey or 15 minutes by taxi.

Reviewed 31 March 2013

Hotel is easy enough to find and probably perfect if you are on business and need or want to be near the station for commuting. However, for a weekend break we found it lacked ambience . cocktail bar empty, no staff on. Rooms trendy but almost that modern that it it felt clinical. Staff friendly enough but felt that you had to walk around whispering, even breakfast lounge lacked atmosphere. Its about a 20 min walk to where all the action is in the city centre, would have preferred to stay somewhere a bit nearer especially when u are out late at night as its not the best of walks to have to do whether u are in a couple or on your own. As mentioned above, i think this is more suited to a business hotel. Clean enough and beds were huge. Found it too pricy given its location, and the fact that it is attached to the train station.

This hotel is very close to the metro station. It is modern and has a trendy interior. There is even a slide in the entrance hall! In the reception area there is a lounge where you can just relax from a day in Malaga. The room was nice and modern, too. However, the bathroom should have been cleaned more properly. Several rent a car stations are next to the hotel, that is really convenience if you want to pick up a car there.

This hotel has been deservedly racking up the points for some time now. Just take the Cercania Train to Maria Zambrano Station from the airport and you can be in your room 30 minutes after landing. The convenience of the location and the helpfulness of the staff have already been highlighted by other fellow travellers, I will just add that this one undoutably has to be your first choice, especially if yours is a short stay and you want to get the best out of Malaga in comfort and convenience. A big star for the amazing, techno shower. Do not look any further.
