Hotel Guadalmedina
Ranked #32 of 89 Hotels in Malaga
Reviewed 26 April 2013

We stayed for 3 nights before moving on to stay with friends. The reception area was not promising but the room turned out to be large and comfortable. The super king sized bed was firm but comfortable and the pillows were nicely soft. The bathroom was large with a good shower.

The hotel 'restaurant ' turned out to be a street cafe/restaurant in which hotel guests were welcome to take breakfast. This was not great unless you like your bacon and fried eggs very cold.

The service at reception was welcoming and any queries or requests for help or information were met helpfully with a smile in English.

This is a business hotel hence no pool or sunbathing facility. The latter could easily be located on the roof which would be a very welcome addition for non-business users. Wifi is free but reception isn't consistent .

Given the hotels limitations however, all of which were known when we booked, this was a perfectly comfortable hotel. It's well located 5-10 minutes walk from the harbour, the central shopping area and many other attractions as well as being within easy walking distance of train and bus stations.

Room Tip: Specify clearly if you want a double bed rather than two singles together.

Just spent two nights at this hotel. The positive points are the location. Very close to the central shopping and eating areas and to both the local and main railway stations. The bathroom almost makes it into a 4 star, except for the awful washing/ bathing soap facility which is an all purpose liquid thing, one near the wash basin and one near the bath/shower. It left both my skin and hair in a terrible condition, I didn't take my usual shampoo as it gave a fabulous description of the toiletries available. The bedroom too would have got a 4 star rating, except there was no indication of how to work certain aspects of the rooms techno stuff eg. the TV, where service was abysmal, the radio didn't work and there was no information about the programmes available, we had to discover these by trial and error and there were only limited Spanish TV showing also, even after they had cleaned our room, we found two large bits of fluff under the chair and the bedding was most uncomfortable.
How can I decribe the general service available for this hotel, well I have been to TWO star hotels that did a better breakfast and served it in better surroundings. Breakfast here was in the Cafeteria Merango which was opened to the public too and was TINY to say the least. The reception desk was huge and took up most of the hall it was situated in, we had difficuty finding the "Dining room" until is was pointed out that it was in, as said before, the Cafeteria and the lounge looked and felt more like a doctors waiting room. The lifts although, only two of them, were efficient
I must say the staff were very pleasant and helpful and they alone deserve a 4 star. as for the rest who ever gives these star award should have a rethink about this Hotel.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else

We would like to apologize for the inconvenience and please rest assured that this matter will receive our prompt and careful attention. We would mention, however, that the company providing the hotel toiletries is renowed for the rigorous quality control of its products.We are very pleased you were really satisfied with the hotel location and staff.
We hope that we may be of further service to you in the future.

We booked this hotel for an overnight after a cruise and flying home the next day. We had pre-paid the room, but the hotel tried to tell us we had cancelled the reservation, A phone call to the cruise line was required to sort that out. Then when we got to the room we could not get any lights etc to work, a quick call to the desk and we found out you need to insert your key card into a slot near the front door to activate the electricity. Who knew? This was mildly irritating as they only gave us one card, so when one of us went out to get something the card had to stay in place for te person in the room. Additionally my ipad could not charge while we were out for dinner. The free wifi wouldnt connect and desk clerk said it didnt work well for tablets..... Hmm. Why? We also could hear clearly people talking in other rooms. Location is great, we walked to the historic center for dinner. We also had to leave very early for the airport and could not use the included breakfast, so they made us up a picnic breakfast to take tothe airport! We were impressed with that.

Dear Sir, We are really sorry for the inconvenience. The electric system in the rooms are with the magnetic card, normally we give one key at the check-in. We are in reception 24 hours in order to help our customers. If our customer needs a copy, we are charmed to give two copies.
As far as the problem with the wifi, we realise that we had a general and puntual problem during one day.
We look forward to seeing you again at our hotel, Thank you for your comment
Yours sincerely,
Hotel Husa Guadalmedina

I always expect anything in Europe to be too small and too pricy. We were so surprised at the minimal price we paid and how updated, clean, hospitable and the size of the rooms. We were a little nervous because some of the surroundings were a little shady but the street the hotel was on was safe. There were a few restaurants but we were there on Sunday but most everything was closed. The hotel restaurant was super convenient and the food was good. We would stay there again!

In general terms is a hotel with good value for money, at least in October. Well situated, not far from the center just opposite the Museum of Contemporary Art. The only problem is the parking: just terrible even for an experienced driver and a middle sized car.

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
