Barcelo Malaga
Ranked #4 of 89 Hotels in Malaga
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 May 2012

My 8-year-old daughter and I spent one night in the Barcelo, and I chose it because of its easy accessibility to the Airport. For our purposes, the location was ideal - five minutes' walk from the bus station (we arrived by bus from Ronda) and directly linked to the station for trains to the airport. There were a couple of large conferences taking place while we were there, and the hotel is clearly aimed more at the business customer than families with small children. Nevertheless, staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room was clean, comfortable and attractive. We enjoyed our lunch outside on a terrace (unfortunately, this doesn't have particularly good views), and used room service in the evening. We were very pleased with the food, the price and the service. We will definitely stay at the Barcelo again before/after flights into Malaga.

located inside the malaga high speed railway station and 15 minutes walking from the historical center of malaga.

modern design. the lobby is small however the very modern design low floor bar is adjacent to the lobby. drinks served at this bar (that has an outside terrasse) were good and not expensive. staff was friendly, polite and helpfull.

i had reserved and paid a "de luxe" room (125 euros two persons, breakfast included) but was upgraded without charges to a junior suite. the room also had a very modern decoration, was sufficiently big and well equipped with jaccuzzi, separate shower, minibar, safety box, flat tv - with channels in spanish only, if i remeber well-, a working area and a big comfortable bed. i had a distant view of the sea.

free wifi worked perfectly.

breakfast was an acceptable buffet with scrambled eggds and bacon as sole warm dishes, plus cold meats, pastries and juices, and nespreso coffee machines. nothing from another planet, but sufficient. a better breakfast would have meant my 5* rate for this hotel.

very recomendable if you want to sleep close to the train station. the station includes a large shopping mall with restaurants, shops, cinemas etc. the sorroundings of the hotel are not very exciting, however. the historical center is not far, either walking or by public transport

parking space is available, either from the hotel or at the station. i did not use it, but took a rented car and the parking lots were sufficiently big for any size of cars.

Enjoyed my stay at the Barcelo Malaga. Great Location and the rooms are very modern and comfy.Easily accessed from Malaga airport via just 3 stops on the train, arrive in the station, which also houses a superb shopping centre.
Unfortunately it was almost impossible to use WiFi in my room.

I loved the hotel. It was easy to access from the airport,I printed off the guide from trip advisor (airport to city centre by express bus, 2 Euros each way). The bus drops you off in front of the station and literally walk through the shopping centre and located near rental cars, left from H&M. The hotel is very modern and you cannot miss the slide in reception, I couldn't wait to try it out and it was so much fun. We were on the 6th floor and the room were spacious, clean and modern. The bathroom was big and supplied the toiletries and even a toothbrush. It is about 30 minute walk to the city centre, we found the number four bus take you there in a couple of minutes for 1 euro and 20 cents. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

A stunning chic Hotel. Easily accessed from Malaga airport via just 3 stops on the train, arrive in the station, which also houses a superb shopping centre, plus direct access to the Hotel. Really Convenient. Natural worry -- will it be noisy located above a train station. Answer -- you'll never know the station is there, the Hotel is so quiet.

Very modern in design, the room are quite minimalist, modern and trendy, we absolutely loved it. Massive beds made every nights sleep completely sound, and we never even heard any noide from the corrridors, never mind anything outside. It was completely restful. The slide in the reception area is a novel and quirky feature which is just fantastic. Staff all very friendly and helpful.

Just one train stop from the centre of Malaga, or just a 15 minute walk it is very handy for the city centre although we discovered (we being my wife, myself and the couple we were with) it was actually cheaper to Taxi from the Hotel into the town centre than to Train it - just around 4/5 Euros depending on where we were getting it from.

A Superb hotel I cant recommend highly enough, and if I go back to Malaga, I wouldnt stay anywhere else.
