Hotel Zenit Malaga

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I booked this mini holiday for a long weekend before our main holiday. The hotel was a bit out of the way..If you are able and fit, maybe half hours walk. Nothing around the immediate vicinity except for Dominoes Pizza, and a supermarket. I got in touch with hotel a few days before, to upgrade to a room with a terrace and a late check out, which was told was ok...upgrade 20 Euros and free late check out, which I thought was great. When we got there however, we had the upgrade for a room with terrace, which the desk manager said would be 20 euros, but the late check out was impossible due to hotel being full, which I very much doubt, as out of the 4 terraced rooms, we were the only ones there. Anyway at checkout at 12pm and not late check out at 8pm like they advertised in the lifts.I was told the upgrade was 30 euros, and not 20 euros as led to believe. I like the harbour, sea front and historical buildings in Malaga, but if I come back, I.m afraid it wont be to the Hotel Zenit.

I have no complaints abot this hotel, and it exceeded my expectations. It should have 4 stars in my opinion (probably rooms size is what prevents it from getting thr 4* rank). Our room was good, bed was great, sheets and towels sparking white, everything spotlessly clean and new. Shining bathroom. Great breakfast, fresh juice, ok coffee, the waiters were good and polite. The reception guy (Ricardo?) who checked us in, was welcoming and smiling, and gave us a good room. I hope all Zenit city hotels are the same standard, because now i become a member 😀

Room was clean but small, bathroom again was small but the shower and facilities were very good - note: Shower over bath. Room has a safe which was free to use. The room was quiet (room 312) but overlooked a narrow gap between the hotel and a set of residential flats, not ideal and made it feel claustrophobic. Small double bed with poor mattress, a good nights sleep was a challenge! The hotel staff were helpful, polite and efficient. Don't know about the restaurant as we didn't use it. Basically it is a decent 3 star hotel, don't expect any more and you won't be disappointed.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in February. We booked this hotel because it had parking facilities. When we arrived and booked in we were told tht the car park was flooded and couldn't be used. Thereis very little on street parking around the hotle and any that there is is not free. We eventuallly got a spot in the car park the hotel uses. Word of warning! It is not free. The romm was clean and fresh but a little small. There was very little room to sit and relax. Just one chair in the room.The air conditioning was virtually silent which meant that we could have it on all night. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was also good and there was a good variety of food available.

Good things: decent sized room big bathroom good towels good breakfast very comfy beds manageable walk to city centre great service Not so good the view ,but not important in the scheme of things the walk seemed longer at night!!

A very good hotel with fantastic breakfast and friendly straff. A 15 min walk from city of the old town of Malaga. We stayed in a generous room wirh large bathroom facing a quiet alley. We slept well on the comfortable small kingsize bed 😜. We'll definiteley consider to stay at this hotel again.

This is a lovely hotel which deserves a much higher rating than it's current 3 stars. it is very modern and clean inside. the rooms are also very clean and well furnished. the hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. the buffet breakfast was excellent with a lot of choices. the hotel is only a 15 minute walk from the city centre or there is an excellent bus service to and fro the centre. at nighttime the hotel is very quiet. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Malaga.

We stayed there for 2 nights. It was close to the centre. There is a bus stop very close to the hotel to get to the centre. The room was clean and the staff very friendly. Breakfast was delicious and quiet traditional! Highly recommended!

Comfortable beds, clean rooms, good breakfast, nice and helpful staff. It is easy to take the bus, just 100 meters from the hotel, or go to the city center There was no kettle in the room. It would have been good if we had a kettle in the room so we could make tea.

A very good hotel that should cater for most peoples needs.The staff are English speaking which is just as well, I left my bag containing an I pad in the taxi. I reported my loss to the people on the the desk with more hope than expectation, I was very pleased the next day when they told me that they had recovered it, I hope they don't do a review on me.
