A hip Costa del Sol hotel with a popular lounge near mass transit and the beach

The Lowdown

Located in the heart of Malaga near mass transit and the beach on Spain’s Costa del Sol, this Barcelo outpost features 221 rooms that echo the playful modernist vibe found throughout the hotel. From the lobby’s enormous, tear-drop shaped chandeliers to its stainless steel slide that empties into B-Lounge, the design here is decidedly slick. B-Lounge rocks glossy mosaic-tiled walls and lime green cube-shaped chairs and is a great place to nurse a cocktail before heading out for a night on the town. And guests will enjoy creature comforts such as free WiFi, satellite TV, a gym and sauna.

In the Area

Bustling Malaga is a popular stop for most people visiting Spain’s famed Costa del Sol. Shopping opportunities abound here, and some of the best streets to flex that plastic are Calle Larios, Carretería, Álamos and Alcazabilla. The city is perhaps most famous as Pablo Picasso’s birthplace, and so the Museo Picasso, housed in a 16th century palace with over 200 works of art, is a must-see. For a history lesson, visit La Alcazaba, a fortress for the city’s Muslims rulers. And if you want to find a place to unfurl your beach towel, you can do that, too.

Great town centre hotel
Reviewed 12 hours ago

Stayed for 3 nights in February. The hotel is right beside the train station, so easy connection from airport, and about 15 minutes walk from the old town. Our bed was amazing, great nights sleep every night. Breakfast was really good, better than expected. The room was a little tired in the decor, some marks here and there but was very comfortable and we weren't disappointed. Just something to consider. There's no real bar, although you can get a drink in the lobby. The bar is being refurbed. decor is excellent. Staff were very helpful. Lovely rooftop swimming pool and lounge with great views.

Lovely hotel, stayed with this chain in Lanzarote so we were not dissappointed with the quality of the accommodation. There was certainly plenty of choice at breakfast to satisfy the most picky of clients
