Where to Stay in Malaga?
There are accommodation types to suit all budgets in this sunny Mediterranean port city, from cheap hotels and hostels, to upmarket resorts and exclusive beachfront retreats. Within the city itself, the historic old centre of town is one of the most appealing places to stay. The narrow streets are full of character and there are plenty of places to eat and drink. It is also a good base for exploring city sights such as the cathedral, the Museo Picasso Malaga and Alcazaba, the Moorish fortress which is situated next to the Roman theatre. Away from the city centre, there are numerous hotels along the seafront and near the city’s beaches. Standards and facilities vary from place-to-place, but many properties have swimming pools and spas. Some of the cheapest hotel deals can be found in the area between the port and the historic centre, and there are several affordable options near the railway station. The city’s hostels also offer good value for money. Beyond the city, the seaside resorts of Marbella, Fuengirola and Torremolinos on the Costa del Sol are popular with tourists and offer a variety of accommodation options.
