Ideal for railway stationPosted Jul 6, 2014
Pros: Convenient for the railway station
Cons: Allow air conditioners to remain on when room vacated.
Location: Away from main town, near to port and stations. Walking times: Scruffy beach - 5 minutes. Main beaches - 20 minutes. Old town - 15 minutes
The Monte Malaga was chosen by us because of its location within walking distance of the railway station as we intended to visit Cordoba. The rail link to the airport is also an advantage. There's a 'beach', 10 minute stroll away, where you can relax, get some beer, etc. and savour the grilled sardines. The hotel offers a good selection of buffet food at breakfast, the coffee machines being a bit confusing at first. The staff were very efficient and helpful. In general, the hotel seemed very popular. There were a few business conventions and coach tour parties. On the whole we had a pleasant and relaxing stay at the Monte Malaga.

Good quality business-type hotelPosted Jun 26, 2014
Not especially charming but a well-appointed business-type hotel with full facilities. 10 minute walk from downtown area. View of adjacent port and waterfront.

Excellent Staff, Close to StationPosted May 26, 2014
This hotel is excellent if you wish to have a short stay in Malaga and with a 4 minute walk to the train station great for trips down the coast as well, it is however a 15 minute walk to the cathedral/old town, so be aware of this in your plans. The staff were excellent from the start, always friendly and helpful. The Breakfast had a good selection, although the specials did not come out in the first hour. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable and the cleaning thorough every day. There was also a conference on at the hotel and it remained very quiet despite being full. Ask for 2 keys so you can leave your air con on when you leave the room for the day otherwise it does take quite a time to cool down and we weren't there at a very hot time. The pool area is quite small and not all the beds have cushions so if it were busy this might have been a problem but we were ok. Overall a very pleasant stay.

4 day easter break with young babyPosted Apr 24, 2014
Pros: excellent staff, cleanliness, prompt service
Cons: baby changing facilities in the swimming pool changing rooms
Location: located at the port of Malaga on west side - very close to 1 of 3 main beach areas, 10-15 minute walk to the heart of the town centre.
Picked this hotel for the indoor swimming pool and the good reviews. we weren't disappointed - amazing hotel staff at hand for every request of which we had many- (kettle for boiling water for the baby milk and heating food, taking breakfast up to room to allow baby to eat later, extra sheet for baby cot....) all in all the service made it a very very pleasant stay. Swimming pool was nice and not too busy - a real bonus considering it was raining for 2 days out of the 4. only slight complaints would be the steam room was out of service when we went - a shame - and there are no baby changing facilities in the changing rooms so I had to dress/undress him on the floor. the staff really make this hotel a very pleasant experience - their recommendations of the best beaches to go to , and the best restaurants to go to were from a local's perspective so we really unearthed some hidden gems of Malaga. thanks to all!

Very good centrally located close to train stationPosted Apr 23, 2014
Pros: All the hotel facilities we were looking forward to.

Location: Close to transport facilities and railway station on five minutes walk in the shopping district with mall and plenty of food court and restaurants
Very good and helpful staff. Rooms spacious and clean. Hotel facilities excellent, plenty of breakfast menu.

Great hotel for the price.Posted Apr 22, 2014
Pros: Overall very enjoyable.
Cons: Food was overpriced and bland.
Location: Close to all amenities, however do not use the cafe behind the hotel .... Christina something or other. The guy really fleeced us good.
Stayed at hotel for around ten days for Semana Santa. Close to train and bus stations and certainly within easy walking distance of bars and shops. Small beach about 5 minutes away and Malagueta Beach a little further off with very good beach cafes. I didn't use the dining facilities as I found the food to be very plain for vegetarians and very expensive by local prices. Early morning swims were much enjoyed. Sauna is good although the steam room had been out of commission for some weeks and would have been a bonus. Staff were extremely helpful, pleasant and enthusiastic

Good facilities and nice restaurant.Posted Apr 20, 2014
Cons: Bedroom facilities.
Enjoyed swiming in outdoor pool. Really good meal in their restaurant. Room rather old fashioned and doors wouldn't close!

Business type hotel in non tourist area near docksPosted Apr 16, 2014
Pros: Slightly heated salt water swimming pool Sauna Great staff - very helpful
Cons: The management of the hotel could be improved - small issues but could have been easily resolved in advance
Location: Location is on the dock with sea views of the docks. This is a Spanish hotel with Spanish Satellite TV and little tourist venues near by.
This is a great hotel for a base to travel in Malaga and around the region by train. The hotel is 4 minutes walk from the train station and the trains are fast, frequent and heavily subsidised. There are shops and food outlets at the train station. It is a flat 15 minute walk to 'old town' Malaga Not a romantic hotel but very nice and with excellent staff on reception

Very good, excellent loxationPosted Apr 16, 2014
Myself and my two 9 year old children had a triple room, 2 single beds were very comfortable,3rd bed was good quaitly temporary bed. Was lots of room around beds. Good room facilites. Inc safe and modern tv, lots of power sockets, Bath room was good, only grumble was air con was not brill, but just about ok if you slept with only sheets and no blanket. Loxation great, 300m to Almeda and edge of Old town, just walk up sise of canal or storm channel to reach Almeda. View of port and tje med from some rooms Pool was very good, warm and clean. Breakfast was buffet, we were room only so opted for the 4.5€ continental breakfast rather than the 12€ full fat buffet breakfast. Hotel is 20€ taxi ride ftom air port, or you can catch train to airport from the central station which is just round the corner from hotel, train run every 20min, take 10 mins for journey and costs 2€. Its 4 stops and train is actually the one that runs to and from Fuengirola. We did both and both taxi to and train from hotel, both were easy. All in all cannot fault this, it clean, modern and well run, on edge of town centre and old town.
