Holiday Inn Express Malaga Airport

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The front desk lady was really nice. Everything was great. I just had to stay for one night for the next day to catch a plane and it was exactly what I needed. The breakfast included has everything that is needed. The rooms were in very good conditions. The only thing is that they do not have a shuttle from the airport to the hotel and a cab is like 15 euros.

Clean room, comfy stay. Helpful staff. Good place to stay after a long flight and still had another day of travel.

Nice & comfortable overnight stay and very close to Malaga airport.

A great place to stay for an early morning flight out of Malaga.

Comfortable. Breakfast included but is continental. Shared taxi from hotel to airport with another person who stayed at the hotel. Taxi fare is about 19 Euro for one trip.

The hotel itself is a typical airport hotel - decent amenities, nice staff. However, there is no airport shuttle, and a cab from the hotel to the airport is about 20 euro.

Got lost even with a map!!! Not noticeable or visable at night.....Had to have a cab lead us there....on wrong side of freeway and lost on turn-abouts and re-routs! Take a cab!

Hotel is not located in walking distance to amenities other than a gas staion but is VERY close to airport. Room was clean and the AC worked great which was nice at the 90 degrees temps outside required it. Front desk staff friendly and understand English. In hotel restaurant is fine for a meal and the free breakfast was fine. Fair price, great airport location and clean room. Can't ask for much more for a quick trip through.

Staff was OK but should have been much more helpful regarding how to get to the airport, since that was clearly the reason everyone was choosing to stay there. If they're not going to furnish a shuttle, they need to at least prominently post the bus schedule and clear diagrams of where the stop is, as well as the walking route to the air terminal if that is an alternative. We could only get vague schedule info from staff, which turned out to be completely inaccurate. They told us the bus came every 30 minutes, and that it would come by sometime after 7:30. We got out there by 7:20 and waited until approximately 8:15 before the bus came. We barely made our flight, but this is pretty unacceptable as airport transportation goes. We had seen the online offer to reimburse airport bus fare, but front desk staff told us that only held for bus fare FROM the airport, as it is necessary to show the bus ticket in order to obtain reimbursement. When my husband then showed our #19 bus tickets from downtown to the hotel, she did reimburse us for them with no question. I had also seen online that the hotel was advertising hot breakfast items (specifically a Spanish tortilla), so I had been looking forward to one last chance to enjoy that specialty. However, no hot or egg items appeared at all, so it was a disappointment, although the cold items were ok.

Very clean, convenient location to airport.

This hotel choice was made because of airport proximity. Very small rooms, limited food options in the evening and a somewhat isolated location would keep this hotel from being a choice for a long term stay.
