Reviewed 30 July 2012

Our room was clean, modern and for the price we payed it was a perfect value. It's easy to walk to old town also to the marina. The guy at the reception was super super helpful. He answered all our questions and he gave us many suggestions. I would definitely go back there.

I was in Malaga in February and I stayed 5 nights at this hotel. Close to metro, I was able to travel to airport and bus terminal easily and visit other cities. Close to old town, restaurants and shopping was easy. It's clean and quiet.

Room Tip: Next door to metro/train

The rooms are OK, meaning spacious and clean. The bathroom, although spacious, had only a shower type 'drain in the floor', meaning the whole thing gets immediately inondated when you turn on the shower. But besides that, everything is up to Spanish 4-star standards.
Just the breakfast is somewhat below expectations: a bit unimaginative and the breakfast room is definitely too small.

The room was clean with plenty of storage space and a comfortable bed, bathroom spacious and clean. But why FOUR stars? Terrible welcome, poor and expensive to eat. No air-con that we could find, although it was October so not really necessary. If this had been 3 stars with a 3 star price I'd have been delighted; as it was I feel ripped off, also, registration was not smooth as it should be. Rooms are great but the hospitality needs work.

After touring through Andalusia for a couple weeks we had a flight back to Malaga and spent one night at this hotel. It was quite easily the worst hotel I have stayed at in the last few years and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. After booking through Splendia you would expect a certain level of quality but not one thing was right with this hotel. Of particular note was the moody staff and overwhelming smell of cat food that fills the building. But honestly I would be happy with this place if I were looking for a hostel because that what it appears to be a good hostel in a 4 star hotel's clothes that has only got there by ticking boxes (minibar, large rooms etc.)
THE BAD:
-Given smoking rooms when asked for non-smoking.
-Booked 3 rooms next to each other recieved 3 rooms each on different floors.
-Smell (cat food on some floors, cooked playdoh on others and smoke/disinfectant in the rooms.
-view was of nothing but the dried up river running through town.
-laminated sticky wood everywhere and pvc double glazing everywhere (with some cracked windows).
-dark everywhere and very dated design.
-air con doesn't work and tv is tiny and gets 1 channel.
-air con control hanging from the wall with wiring exposed in first room.
-cupboard door hanging from hinges and door stoppers loosened from the floor.


Basically no way this is a 4 star place. For a nice (not amazing but nice 4 star in malaga try the Molina Lario where the staff are wonderful and the food delicious! Also Splendia seems to have removed them from their listings so I imagine they have reassessed the quality of this hotel.

I got this hotel lastminute and I was very impressed. Free wifi, good sized room and close to the old town.
V handy for the train station that takes you to the airport and along the coast.
Staff were helpful and friendly
Only downside is that the cafe is right off the lobby so could be a bit smokey.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The rooms reminded me of a travel lodge and it was very clean and tidy. The shower was almost a trickle of water but still searved it's purpose. Don't use the handwash it's awful.
Air con was ok but to really benefit it needed to be on for hours.
The beds were two singles pushed together typical of Europe but very confy.
We had a mini bar but the drinks were warm and expensive so we bought our own from a near by super Market.
Reception staff friendly but the bar staff don't speak English and it was a chore ordering food. We had to point to the picture of the food we wanted. They knew we were English but still spoke to us in Spanish.
Comfortable stay overall but wouldn't recommend it. The location is crap it seems far out from anywhere and there are no decent restaurants around.
I wouldnt stay here again.
