Accommodation during the Malaga Film Festival.
During these festival days the city grows considerably, this is why we recommend to seek accommodation in Malaga in advance to avoid high prices.
The best option would be to look for a hotel in the center of Malaga, this way you will be very close to the most important places to enjoy the activities. However, many others lean towards the outskirts. Above all, in Torremolinos, Fuengirola or Benalmádena, the advantage here is that you can also enjoy a bit of the sea and the coast, the hotel prices can be a bit cheaper and the trip to the center of Malaga is fix in a single trip by train.
