Recent guest reviews

A fantastic hotel if your needing to be near the station, we had flown in and we're picking up a hire car the next day. It's easy cab ride or 20 minute walk into town.. very comfortable nights sleep and quiet

Conveniently located at the main train station. Hotel rooms very well set out. Breakfast was fabulous. Take the C2 bus to the centre for 1,3 euro where the attractions are and walk the port where the water side restaurants are located.

Having stayed in Malaga quite recently and enjoyed excellent accommodation at a good value price it was very disappointing to find that the hotel, which advertises itself as a luxury experience, was a bit shabby. Our room had a very comfy bed but otherwise needed refurbishment. A very expensive one night stay.

We had an excellent three night stay here at the end of a cruise. The bed was amazingly comfortable. We asked at reception if we could take it home. The room was a good size, very clean and a large shower area in the bathroom. The breakfast buffet had plenty of choice of hot and cold selections and the quality was a lot better than we had on the cruise. We did not hear any noise from the train station or the nearby roads. The location is fantastic, right in the train station and the bus station is next door. There is a shopping centre in the train station and a large shopping centre + restaurants about 100 metres from the entrance to the train station. The hop on hop off bus also stops at the train station. We used the local bus, 3.20 euro return to Benalmadena and we also visited Granada which cost 42 euro return. Excellent hotel with super comfy bed.

Recently returned from a 4 night stay at the Barcelo Malaga. The hotel is actually located within the main Maria Zambrano station, so excellently located for a swift airport transfer, or for visiting other areas of Andalusia by train. Despite the hotel's proximity to the station, not once did we hear any train noise. We stayed on a room only basis, and we did not use any of the hotel's bars or restaurants, so cannot comment on the food or drink. All the hotel staff we encountered, were very polite and friendly. Our room was very nice, clean and spacious and with a huge comfortable bed and flat screen TV, but with very few English channels. Free wi-fi is available. Within the station complex, there is a lovely modern mall, comprising numerous shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. The city centre, harbour front and La Malagueta beach are all within a 30 minute walk. However, Malaga is pretty flat, so it's easy walking. All in all, the Barcelo is a very good hotel and well located for exploring the beautiful city of Malaga and surrounding areas. We would definitely stay here again if we ever return to Malaga.

Stayed at this hotel for the Easter weekend and what a lovely surprise when we arrived. The reception staff were excellent friendly and informative. The rooms have everything you need (apart from tea and coffee facilities for which you have to pay for as an extra). The bed was so comfortable we wanted to take it home with us. The best part was the shower after a day of walking round Malaga it was lovely and refreshing.

Great Hotel and friendly staff in a central location which offers an ideal location from where to explore Malaga. Despite being located in the city centre the area is quiet and the hotel offers plenty of off street parking. We had a wonderful stay and will look no further for our future stay in the city.

Very nice hotel, good location, and the staff were very pleasant, & helpful, nice tidy & clean rooms, .The food was excellent with prompt service. Gym was well equipped. We are thinking to choose the same hotel for our future trips.

Perfect hotel for the family before we caught the train to Seville. Fun, contemporary design - including a slide for our children into the reception area! Excelllent service and plenty of room with a king size bed.

We can say only good things about this hotel. Try it, you'll love it. It's in a convenient location, right by the train station, which has wonderful stores, restaurants and a supermarket. The hotel is modern and clean, and friendly staff. Will come back.
