Clean, convenient, comfortable........

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 23, 2014

....and excellent value, imo.

Hotel Sur is on the edge of Malaga's historical heart, a couple of minutes' walk from the airport bus stop, about 5 minutes' from Malaga Centra Cercanias station, maybe 15 to the Renfe and bus stations. It's one 'block' back from the busy Alameda Principal, on a street which has barely any traffic, so it should be a quiet spot (unfortunately building work nearby caused a bit of noise when I visited). And it's absolutely perfect for exploring Malaga on foot because shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and all the main historical sights are within just a few minutes' walk.

Rooms are clean and simple, with marble flooring. My room was at the rear, with TV, ample storage and a large bathroom complete with tub (and lots of hot water). I was very pleased that the hotel heating worked well (it was chilly when I visited) but can only assume that the air con works equally well. Wifi access is free and efficient, and there's a lift.

The hotel offers breakfast at a cost of 4.50 euro. It's brought to the hotel breakfast room from the tiny cafe directly opposite. Coffee or tea, a slice of toasted bread with tomato and/or ham and/or cheese, fresh orange juice and a pastry. You could probably get much the same for a euro or so less in a cafe somewhere else but I felt it offered good value for those of us who like to have a coffee before we properly start the day. :-)

Hotel staff were courteous and pleasant, with good English.

I was very pleased indeed with this hotel. The rate (in February) seemed very fair for what it offered and, especially, for its location. I also felt it was a safe area for the solo female traveller, and that always matters.

Recommended if you are looking for a clean, simple and central base in Malaga.

Directions: Trinidad Grund lies one 'block' to the south of Alameda Principal. From the airport take the Cercanias to Malaga Centro or the airport bus A to Alameda Principal-Centro stop.

Not Great!

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 8, 2008

I just came back from a 1 night stay at the Hotel Sur.
Good: The hotel was centrally located within walking distance from some of the main attractions & there was a lot of restaurants and tapas bars nearby. The room was average, clean and of a fairly good size. There was no hair dryer and the shower head was small. Hotel itself was well kept: it was clean and tidy
Rooms are .

Bad: Our Room (327) had a small window that looked into some construction area. The building next door is being renovated so be ready for drilling and hammering. The staff at reception were not helpful at all, 2 friends came to pick us in the evening and they made them wait for us outside. My friend came back in the early morning and they didn’t want to let him in (they said it was because the room was at my name, but they took his details to in the check-in!). Hotel is located in a narrow pedastrian street, which is doggy at night, do NOT walk alone at night!

Next to the Hotel is the crumbling Pension Costa Rica, with noisy drunk guest that spent the night throwing bottles through the window!

Overall, I think this hotel was adequate (clean room with air conditioning) but I don't think I'll stay there again.

Good Value, Basic **star Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 9, 2008

Two Star. Exterior does not reflect the newly (2008) decorated and spotlessly clean interior. H24 desk staff polite and English Speaking. The entrance is in a quiet pedestrian street. My single room with en suite was basic but certainly adequate and very clean. But, it was at the back and was nosy due to building site during the day (the whole of Malaga seems to be a building site, so that can't detract from this level city-centre hotel). Air Conditioning wasn't working and it took a couple of attempts to discover that it isn't turned on 'till "summer" (25+ deg in April, but it wasn't uncomfortable inside once I had acclimatised from UK weather!). Unfortunately the heating was also jammed on - this was fixed the day that I told them, without any fuss - which I thought was impressive.
Some noise from (Spanish?) guests returning after late night weekend revelry wasn't helped by the tiled corridors, but it wasn't too bad, and, when in Spain ..... !
A good 15 min walk from bus and train stations when you know the way - probably worth a taxi-ride the first time and with luggage, but I managed to walk.
Posted off peak single rate was E42, but I booked through https://www.ratestogo.com/ for E32.
Summary: Very clean basic **star hotel very close to Malaga attractions.

Directions: Just off the edge of the main tourist district, close to the Plaza de la Marina. Close to Malaga attractions and beach, a full 15 mins walk from main bus and train stations.

Clean, simple and near el Centro

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

The best part of the Hotel Sur was the location. Real close to the public bus stop coming from the airport, as within walking distance of most of the sights, museums and "el centro". The staff was friendly and even let me store my luggage for a couple hours after checking out. The rooms themselves were clean though very barebones.

Bottom-line: A good budget option.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

Suprisingly nice 2 star hotel centrally located in Malaga, about 10 minutes walk from the (local) train station.

Our room was big and clean, with all mod cons. Staff were friendly.

Unique Quality: A bit of a bargain

Directions: Walk for 10 minutes, straight from the main door of the station. When you can see the river, cross it and follow the main avenue (Alameda Principal) until Cordoba Street corner. Hotel is 50 metres down Cordoba Street.
