Despite some of its modern furnishings, the hotel feels worn out, used and an overall feeling of 'yucky'. We had a room on the top floor (3rd) and at the end of the hall (we appreciated this as we were traveling with our 1 year old daughter). The floor was dirty and you can see hair and other things that... More

The hotel as its name indicates it is very close to the Airport. Close that’s true, but don’t try to walk there if your flight arrives at night as we did. You’ll be much better off, if you call a taxi, rather than walk around and try to find Holiday Inn. It isn’t a good start of your holiday, believe... More

We wanted somewhere near the airport for an overnight stay as we were arriving into Malaga at 11.30 pm.. I emailed the hotel in advance and they gave me clear instuctions on how to get there by bus. We were the only two people on the last bus to Malaga which leaves at 24.00. The bus driver told us when... More

I stayed here one night at the end of my trip to the Costa Del Sol. The hotel is of an average standard with what you expect from a Holiday Inn Express. The room was comfy and the bed was very nice. Bathroom includes all your needed amenities. Staff were very nice and efficient. It is only about 5 minutes... More

The rooms were comfortable and clean but we were disturbed by noise from the road. If you plan to take the public bus from the airport (3 euros, reimbursed by the hotel), make sure you get precise instructions first, as the hotel is over a pedestrian bridge from the bus stop and it's a difficult walk in the dark with...

Okay I get it why some travelers don't like this hotel: the tv looked old and the sofa bed was old. However if you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel close to the airport (we drove 6 minutes in the morning) where the staff treats you like a valued customer, this is the place. Our expectations were exceeded tremendously as... More

Corporate needs to do something about this 1960's facility. From 16" TV screen to terrible matrices to cracked coffee cups in the room to lipstick on coffee cup in the coffee lounge.

Close to the airport, but no shuttle-bus. Bad functioning ac, and the smell of cigarette in our room was noticeable even though we asked for a none smoker room. The good thing was the quick and easy breakfast which was available during the night for those who has got an early plane

To be fair I didn't see a lot of the hotel, the room was fine. I arrived at 02:00 am via a 19 euros taxi ride of about 2Km max. Walkable but you'd need to know where you were going. Shower worked OK, taxied out again 6 hours later with another similarly priced taxi.
