We were last in Málaga nine years ago, but not to stay. We came in at the airport and headed out immediately to Marbella, so we never got to see any of the town. The Estacion de Málaga Santa Zambrano turned out to be a delight not to be missed. The train pulled in right on time, and there was no long hike to the terminal.
Need cash from the ATM? Right there before you get into the terminal.
Barbara’s scheme throughout the trip has been to get hotels close to the train stations. Again she nailed it. Our hotel is right at the station. Only needed to go through a couple of doors. The story of the Hotel Barceló Málaga is the topic of another post. In the mean time, it turns out if all you want to do to live in comfort, there is never any need to leave the station. Everything is right here. To illustrate and to finish out this post, here is a selection of photos in and about the station.
