Stayed for 2 nights.
Great first impressions from the very friendly and helpful reception staff.
Located right next to the train station (if you want to get a train to the airport it's so easy, quick & cheap - €1.75, only takes 10 mins and trains every 20 mins) and the bus station is max 5 mins walk (ideal for us as we got the bus from Gibraltar / La Linea).
On check out we were able to use the gym changing room facilities for free, which was ideal as we had been walking all day.
The only 2 slight negatives were that the breakfast was too expensive for us (€15.50 per person per day) and the room smelt when we checked in. It smelt like someone had been smoking in the room - a lot! But we left the window open and it done the trick.
Top tip for Malaga. If you are there on a Sunday, many of the top tourist attractions are free, especially between 2 - 8pm. Such as the castle and alcazaba (well worth a visit). Although each attraction only costs €2.20 per person at all other times. Would recommend you check out the lovely port area and the beach was surprisingly nice and big.
Really nice Galician restaurant close by (Candamil) - lovely authentic food and friendly staff at reasonable prices.
