Hotels in Torremolinos
In comercial area
Driving back home from La Manga del Mar Menor, we decided to stop in Torremolinos. It was August, a Saturday, and having no reserve, getting a room should be difficult, admitting that all hotels in Torremolinos should be full.
Upon arrival I borrowed a computer and in Booking I found a double room in this hotel for… 40 €.
I booked it, of course.
Well, the hotel is a reasonable three stars, with a problem – it is hard to reach, in a pedestrian and interior street, with no parking facilities.
We had no meal in the hotel (breakfast was not included, as expected – the regular price indicated in the room’s door was… 140€ and not the excepcional price that we paid).

The first impression was bad – there was no hot water in the room. The desk offered to get us another room, or to fix it later, if we could wait. We decided to wait, the problem was solved, and nothing else happened until the last day.
The location of the hotel is excellent, the rooms look old but are functional, there is no kitchen but the stove and fridge were useful, as it was a self-service laundry.
We only had breakfast in the restaurant in the first day – for 9 € it was not expensive, and the service was acceptable, but we had to pay also the 9 € for a 3 years old child, that only had a glass of milk.
Since then our breakfast started to be in the room, where all the family could eat well for less than 9 €, buying the goods in the facing supermarket.
We only had a dinner there, very affordable, with a fixed menu but well served. The problem is that the menu didn’t change much day after day, inviting us to try elsewhere (and there were hundreds of alternatives).
We enjoyed the animation of the hotel, with reasonable shows.
Parking is free, but only serves about 10% of the clients, so, they managed to provide free use of a parking uptown. It’s more than 2 km driving there, but only a few hundred walking through the stairs or using the lift.
To use it, we must make a deposit of 10€ to receive back against the delivery of the card to the free entrance.
When I did, I noticed that the desk was out of change, and they “forgot” to return the deposit. When I mentioned it, rapidly they went searching the money that was only two meters aside.

I went there very suspicious, because the hotel seemed too big and too cheap, suggesting problems with service. No reason for that! We had a perfect stay with the advantage for the men and children that the commercial area is a little bit distant.
Of course, if you are looking for the Spanish “movida” then you’d better stay everywhere else, where movement and noise are the rule.
However, if you want to rest, and specially with kids, that’s a good place.
PS – Someone asked me some additional information, calling my attention for the fact that the hotel changed name and administration and is now sold under “all-inclusive” base. So, you better forget the prices I paid.

Website: Not working. It seems that the hotel is changing hands. Again!
I didn’t stay there.
I didn’t even enter it, but I was curious with its location.
Torremolinos unfolds in two main levels, uptown, where the commerce and nightlife is mainly concentrated, and the sea level, with the beaches and related equipment and shops.
We spent all week using the elevator up and sometimes down (alternating with the stairs).
Behind our hotel, Fenix hotel showed a curious solution: it is built in the slope, so, the main entrance is in the upper level, in the centre of town, but it has also a door in the back at sea level.
