“3 plus. 3 contra..and sleep here only if you travel by train!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

Plus.1 The position. You have a direct access to train station, so if you are on a business journey is fantastic.2 design. It's really a nice hotel, with modern interior design. 3 breakfast is really good. Contra. 1 the position. If you are not on business and you don't need the train there is no reason for sleeping in barceló. There are better solutions in front of the sea or in the city center. 2 beds and rooms are a little a very little bit aged for a 4 star hotel. 3. Parking. It's really expensive.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

We stayed here one night as we had an earlyish flighht out from Malaga the next morning. The hotel is located above the main station in Malaga so very handy for the train that goes out to the Airport. We arrived late morning from Cordoba but the room was ready within 15 minutes so we did not have to come back later to check in. The hotel is very modern - minimalist maybe is a better word and very well finished. The room we had was spacious, with large bed. Electronic window shutters can be used to close off daylight. Excellent bathroom with power shower jets.
We had breakfast in the somewhat soulless breakfast area - however there was a huge choice of items that would suit all tastes. The quality was good.
The only drawback to the hotel is it's location. As is common with areas around stations, it would not be somewhere that I would be comfortable in walking late at night - I have no reason to say this except that it just felt that way! It's a 10-15 minute walk into the centre of Malaga. I could not find any decent restaurants outside of the station - though the station complex has several that might be OK. Failing that, it's a walk or a taxi ride into town to eat.

Hotel is very conveniently located by the central train station. Very modern hotel with excellent interior design. Stayed here during the day while waiting for a flight, but managed to enjoy it! Staff is very nice, all runs smoothly. Historical centre is located some 15 minutes walk or 5 minutes drive away. Some nice restaurants are located nearby, but train station building features an abundance of shopping facilities. You will definitely enjoy it!

This hotel is ideal if travelling from the airport by train. You need to get off at Maria Zambrano and keep going right out of station/shopping centre. The hotel has lovely clean modern lines. Reception staff were friendly helpful and efficient. We were on the 6th floor. the room was plenty big enough for a city break. It had the biggest bed I've ever slept in which was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was good with a fantastic shower with powerful jets. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel so can't comment on that.
We caught the bus into the centre of Malaga the first time to know the way, but walked there after, which took an enjoyable 10 to 15 mins. A good way to use up the calories from San Miguel and tapas! I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again on future trips to Malaga.
