Great location, you can access the hotel directly from the main railway station, Maria Zambrano, which is just 8 minutes from the airport so makes arrival in Malaga very easy and convenient. The hotel itself if very good but not excellent. This is the third time we've stayed here in 5 or 6 years and it's just starting to be a little bit tired, a bit tatty in places, needs a sharp eyed general manager to take action
Little moan aside, this is a great place to stay and much better now that all the construction work around the hotel and station is complete. The staff are super, Nacho made us very welcome and was very helpful when we asked questions about the area, thanks. Breakfast is excellent and well worth the extra cost if not included, kept us going until the afternoon. The rooms are clean, comfortable and a good size with massive beds, we have a super king at home and the Barcelo bed made ours look small!
There is an El Corte Ingles supermarket immediately across the road from the front door of the hotel, it has most things you will want. Five minutes up the road, turn left outside the main door of the railway station, there is the Larios Centre with another supermarket, cinema, lots of shops and an excellent tapas bar - recommended, turn right when you go into the centre and it's there!
In the station itself are lots of shops and eateries, they've made a really good job of this, well worth a good look round and if the weather is bad you don't need to leave the station complex!
From the hotel it's about fifteen minutes walk to the centre of Malaga with it's many shops and restaurants. There are several routes to explore, so it isn't a chore, enjoy it. Another five minutes and you are in Malaga Park and then onto the Marina where the cruise liners dock. This had all been renovated and is a great place to visit with lots of nice restaurants, lots of space to stroll around or just sit and people watch. I'd have liked more shady areas but I'm just a fair skinned redneck Brit!
Just across or around this little peninsular where the marina is, on the other side is La Malagueta beach with sun beds and yet more restaurants. A little inland is the bullring where the name La Malagueta comes from I think. In short, the Barcelo is a great base from which to explore a great little town which is full of interest and nice people.
