Expert review of Sercotel Bahia Malaga

A no fuss hotel in Malaga city centre.

If you’re planning on spending your stay exploring the city, hitting the beach and/or bars or working in Malaga (and not spending much time in your room), I’d happily recommend Hotel Bahia as it’s centrally located with good road, rail and bus links. It’s utterly functional and clean but The Ritz it’s not – and, importantly, nor does it pretend to be.

Location: 

I’ve got to Calle Larios, the beautiful marble-paved shopping street, within five minutes from the reception area – and La Malagueta beach, just past the port, is a pleasing 10-15 minute stroll through the lush, shady park.

Bedrooms: 

The bedrooms are not the biggest, even by city-centre standards, so I’d go for a triple room if you can, even if there are only two of you. The beds and the MDF-looking cream and brown furniture are a little 1980s (and not in a 'retro chic' way), but everything’s spotless.

Public areas: 

The reception area’s highly polished beige marble floors and dark Spanish wood furniture set the tone for the hotel: perfectly adequate, but not exactly 2011. The reading, TV and social rooms are a good spot to catch up on your emails as there’s free WiFi.

Eating and drinking: 

There’s a small bar/cafeteria in the hotel and guests can take advantage of free coffee all day. It’s a bit lacking in atmosphere though and I prefer to head into the bustle of the city’s thriving café culture. There’s no proper restaurant.

Service: 

The multi-lingual, knowledgeable and generous-spirited staff are as customer-savvy as some in the best five star hotels.
