2. Hotels in Malaga City

If you don’t mind staying a little further away, there are some great hotels in Malaga City. In our opinion, Malaga is one of Europe’s most underrated cities. It’s only a 15-minute taxi ride to/from the Airport or about 10 minutes by train. But many people only visit the Costa Del Sol (Fuengirola, Marbella, Estepona) and never the City. We personally visit Malaga every few weeks because of the fantastic food, ambience and culture. So if you have a night to spare, we highly recommend staying in the heart of Malaga. We recommend the following hotels in Malaga City.
