Hotel Guadalmedina

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We really enjoyed our stay at the Guadalmedina. I wouldn't call the hotel luxurious but it featured everything we needed included great customer service from the front desk, spacious rooms and a very good location only a 5 minute walk from the city center. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a great value during your visit to Malaga.

Only 10 minutes from the airport. Check in very swift and organised. Rooms very comfortable and well stocked from the bar to razors, combs and toothbrushes. The bar is closed at the moment - just for information. Only 10 minute walk to the old time and maybe 20 to the restaurants and shops at the port. Maybe a little too pricey at 90 euros a room a night if I'm honest as the location is not the prettiest abs apart from the room then there were no other facilities

Basic hotel with nice friendly staff. As it's very close to the station, it's very easy to visit Granada, Ronda, Nerja etc. Bedroom was a good size with good clean bathroom with very powerful shower over the bath. Bed was huge but very hard, although some might like that. Area seems very safe, unlike some city hotels by a station. If you go right out of hotel there is a lovely Italian resturant, just 2 minutes away. It doesn't look much but meals are good. Across from there are others that are also good. Hotel breakfast wasn't the best, but I've had worse. Could hear outside noise from 3rd floor although it's double glazed and not a particularly busy road, so try to get a room higher up. Could also hear toilets being flushed and showers being used

We spent one night here at the start of our trip. It wasn't a cheap hotel but didn't really offer anything over and above to make it special. The location was reasonably close to the old town but not a particularly nice area. The room was clean but no frills. You can request a tea / coffee tray for your room which we did. Our booking did not include breakfast so we can't comment on that.

We stayed with three other couples and we were given four rooms all adjacent on the fifth floor. All the rooms were very clean and well equipped and overlooking the river. The road is quiet and we had no loud noise in the evenings and slept well each of the four nights. Breakfast was very good. Only disappointment was the yoghurt, it is sweetened and we prefer natural sugar free. Not a big deal as there is plenty of fresh fruit and good bread and a toaster. The cook will make fresh scrambled eggs or omelette on request. The reception staff were very helpful and pleasant. Overall we were very impressed.

we spent 3 nights at l Guadalmedina . Staff very polite,friendly and helpful. The room was clean and modern,beds comfortable.The bathroom shower was very good.tea making facilities available on request. Wi-Fi good. We stayed on first floor and there was a lot of traffic noise till about 2.00 in morning and again at 6.00. The location is good for exploring the City.Train station across the road and 10 mins to Zambranno station. The bed was super comfy! 10 minutes away from the city centre (by walk) with all shops and restaurants. Not very close to the beach but we love to walk! So for us it was not a big issue. Internet was not the best but not too bad. All in all a lovely holiday! We strongly recommend it!

We caught a bus from Malaga airport to Malaga. Get off in front of the railway station rather than the bus station behind it. It took us about 10 mins to walk to the hotel. The hotel itself is clean and fairly quiet. Spacious rooms. Can get tea and coffee making facilities on request.

Quite enjoyed our stay in the hotel. Location is first class with one exit from the Airport train terminal only 50m away. Rooms are good, staff are first class and responded to a problem instantly. Only five minutes walk from Alameda where all the buses run and a further five to Larius, the main shopping street with the fabulous dome of light covering the length of the street at night. Only quibble is the lack of a restaurant serving meals or even a sandwich after 4.30pm. I cannot understand how they received four stars!

I've spent 5 nights at Hotel Guadalmedina with my boyfriend. We found the place very clean and the staff very polite and friendly. The bed was super comfy! 10 minutes away from the city centre (by walk) with all shops and restaurants. Not very close to the beach but we love to walk! So for us it was not a big issue. Internet was not the best but not too bad. All in all a lovely holiday! We strongly recommend it!

This hotel is just over the road from the Malaga central station ( local train - end of the line ) . The room was clean and lots of toiletries for your convenience. The bed was enormormous and we were impressed with the space and comfort. Bath and overhead shower unusual in Spain. Would go again.
