“Fun hotel”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Great location for the train station. Slightly out of the main old town but only a 10 -15 min walk to the old town but there are plenty of taxis available that are cheap. The hotel is very modern and friendly and good value for money, the slide in reception is a fab fun feature.

Modern hotel next to the train station(zero noise) 8 mins from airport by train 1.75 euros,17.95 euros by cab .
Friendly staff, spacious modern rooms, clean well equipped bathrooms, funky bar and hilarious slide down into reception which kept us all entertained. Breakfast expensive and not worth it, poor hot choice, dirty uncleared tables and no clean ones set up staff obviously overwhelmed!
A bit of a hike on foot to the old town and harbour but was only 5 euros for a cab back if tired.
all in all would return and recommend!

Room Tip: I asked for a large double and we had a super-king!

Modern Chain, with a funky design, but felt like a cheap nightclub. Great ideas, but should have used better quality materials. I'm sure many people loved this hotel, but I found it didnt meet my expectations.

Location.... is in the middle for walking to town or the beach.... but not really anything worthy of visiting outside. But is excellent for the coach station.

I would recommend staying somewhere closer to town, but is a good place to stay on a budget.

Our 5 nights in this hotel were lovely. We wanted a base to explore and with both train and bus links right there, it couldn't have been better. Lovely, clean, fresh rooms - big comfortable beds with a 'pillow menu', great shower. Not much drawer storage but big wardrobe. We only had breakfast, which was very good and reasonably priced, but did have drinks and delicious tapas. I believe the quality of food in the restaurant is very good. Only downside for some is the 15 minute walk to town, but it didn't bother us. Granada trip was fab and worth paying a tiny bit more for the Super economy buses. Marbella a 50 minute bus ride (direct). So much to see and do in Malaga itself. Note that the best way to and from airport is by train - takes less than 10 mins and is cheaper than the bus. You end up right by hotel literally. Really delightful staff - helped us loads.

Very good hotel next to the Maria Zambrano railway station . Staff were all great and could not have been more helpful . Large comfortable room with a view over the city . Rooms can be a bit warm but the windows can be opened .Buffet breakfast was fine with plenty of choice .Hotel is about 15 minutes to the centre or take a taxi from the station for about three euros .Shopping centres and large department store is ten minutes walk from the hotel .

I can't fault this hotel and they've only got 4 stars because I reserve 5 for outstanding hotels. This is a great place to stay. Being located at the main station it is great for rail or bus connections, but it is well sound-proofed and we slept well. It is a bit warm (air-con only goes down to 21) but the room is very comfortable with a huge double bed. The staff are friendly and it has a very easy-going atmosphere. Breakfast is fine with plenty of fresh fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice. Great value for money.
