On the way we stopped at Mijas for a bit and than drove through the mountains to Marbella. The weather was rather strange, a lot if wind and temperatures of around 25 which is pretty cool for here at this time of year. We walked through the little streets of the old town which was real nice and walked down to the boulevard following the beach for a bit. But as the wind was to fresh we went back up and had some lunch on a little square before ...
... and spices (like a Swiss raclette), followed by a hot fish seafood soup. Back to the beach for siesta! At 7:30pm the beach cushions were being gathered up, so we had to move! We sat down for a drink outdoors at our hotel.
I nearly choked on my tea when the customer near me at the little boutique dropped his pants to try on different shorts on sale. This was ...
... the distance just above the town of Cómpeta. It resembled one of the small bonfires the farmers seem to light from time to time so we thought nothing of it. Following a lunch of tapas and a couple of beers in the square we returned for a well earned siesta. Unfortunately the scene from the balcony was not particularly conducive to relaxation. Alarmingly the bushfire had really taken hold. There was a huge cloud of black ...
... travelling! Thankfully after a little while of trying to chase the sun and avoid the wind, we found a small corner which sold food and was warm inside. Ahhh paradise! Paul ordered a burger and after three attempts of various vegetarian options, I settled with a flafel roll. It's a little bit hard to be a vegetarian in Spain. Pretty much your options are donuts, churros, other sweet breads, plain bread or flafels. So we have been doing the old supermarket shop quite a bit. ...
... I don’t have any early-boarding benefits with my Excellence ticket, so I just joined the line. I had to ask for a seat belt extension for the first time on this trip—bummer. I’m pretty sure it was just because it was an older, smaller airplane?! I found out with my Excellence airfare that I could have anything for free from the in-flight menu (that wasn't clear on the flight over from Venice!) but I didn't get anything. The flight was just over ...

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.
