Travel Blogs from Málaga
I suspect there will just be one more entry after this so whilst I have a quick moment on our last night in Sayalonga it would seem a good time to thank a few folk who have made it all possible!
In true Oscars fashion and in no particular order obviously :
To my sister Kathy for giving me the peace of mind to leave for such ...
... a 20min walk made all the more better by flat roads and no boots. It was a quick six hours, a few beers, some sun, something to eat and we appeared to be off. It wasn't quite like that, we talked, we caught up, we found out all the Swansea gossip and then we were off. My T shirt sun tan may well become a craze in the costa del sol but I'll wait and see. Back to the airport and into the lounge (I'm an international traveler) before joining the flight for home and yes, we were the last ones ...
... an may be able to eat it fixed in a day?! Unbelievable! Sadly as work previously done the clutch wasn't what they expected so would have to wait till the next day... An €900 euros later we are ready to go again!! Woop woop! While waiting for jake checked out a Picasso museum an another one of Spain's beautiful beaches full of stunning topless babes And with 2 days past can now claim got through Morocco without the *****!! Bout 70% of the tour group ...
... century, Amazing. Had coffee overlooking the massive cliffs, then walked around a bit more and stopped for lunch before walking back down the hill to drive the hairy ride down the hill.
Had a BBQ at home with Gareths brother and wife (Euan and Keryn) and other friends Shirley and Bernard. Was a lovely night.
Again a warm day and perfect nights.
Our final day on board was at sea. We played Bingo for the last time and went to Shogun for a sushi lunch for Vicki's birthday. We had plans for the Japanese steakhouse later that night. We packed up our suitcases, went to dinner, saw the final show called Elements, and went to the casino. I got there just a few short hours after the German couple that had been stalking my play ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars Astoria Málaga
Great value, great location, very clean
We stayed for two nights - great value hotel right in the centre. Spotlessly clean with parking right outside.
Only drawback was that we booked it for three adults - rooms are too small, but are more than adequate for two adults or two adults+one child.
Nice little hotel
Nice little hotel with an excellent location, close to the train station and to downtown Malaga (which, by the way, is much more charming than I expected!). Although it faces a gas station (you literaly walk out right into it... very strange), the hotel is nice and modern, and the staff helpful and friendly. We were only there for one night, but we would not hesitate to stay there again.
The rooms and modern, spacious and extremely clean. Good choice and excellent value for money!
A very nice hotel in all respects
Stayed for 5 nights in March 2005 in double room (Room 407 - very nice but dark due to close proximity of adjoining building).
Room very good in all other respects -clean, well furnished with excellent en-suite facilities.
All the staff we met were most helpful and friendly and made us feel really welcome.
Hotel location couldn't be better - close to train station (15 minute journey to Airport) and close to new and old parts of Malaga and seafront.
Very good breakfast facilities - spoilt for choice!
All-in-all, highly recommended and we shall certainly stay there again on our next visit to this charming City.
Great place, better than your average 3 star
Lovely hotel. Arrived here late one evening for a short 2 night stay. Although hotel lobby isn't particularly impressive the rooms certainly make up for that. Room would not be out of place in a four/five star hotel. Lovely large room with twin comfy beds pushed together to make a large double. Lovely oak wood furniture and a great bathroom with a whirlpool bath and power shower! Also great little wooden box of toiletries. Hotel staff spoke basic english and were friendly enough.
Location is literally right next to the station (30 metres away max) which means that you can catch the train from the airport straight there.
I spend two days in Malaga in early October. The Hotel Astoria was convenient, clean and reasonably priced. It is not in the center of town, but convenient to both the older part of Malaga and the newer shopping complex.
The room was clean, and staff somewhat friendly. The bathroom was nice and the room comfortable. For the price (which was a little higher than other accomodations) it was fine. I would stay there again.
The neighbourhood isn't as charming as other parts of Malaga, however the proximity to the train/metro was an added bonus
Okay for one night...
Central location but not a nice neighbourhood. Parking is available nearby at around €15 a day. Hotel room is small, smells a bit strange, although bathroom is quite decent and clean. Quite disappointed...photos on the website look so much nicer. Hotel staff is not friendly at all. Would definitely not stay there again!
Perfect Location & Price
We travelled by train to Malaga from the airport - neat & efficient. What´s more the station (Almeda - end of the line) has a subway that pops up just 40 yds from the hotel.
Really worth the money - book via laterooms to get a good deal. The hydrobath is good fun.
Breakfast is a stunning array of food.
The air con was a tad slow to get going but the hotel´s very quite with spacious rooms. We spent two nights here but would recommend for a longer stay.
Good city hotel
We only stayed here for 1 night and it was more than good. Nice and clean room and bathroom. Friendly staff and parking is close by. You don't hear any city noise.
The hotel is conveniently located in town, so I would definitely recommend it. The price was also very reasonable.
