    Hi Andrea,

    The main station in Madrid is called 'Puerta de Atocha' (or simply just 'Atocha'). This is where trains to Malaga would depart from.

    For more information about the Madrid Atocha station and even a link to a Google map of its location, you can refer to the following link:

    We only have similar pages and information for some of the more major stations in Europe.

    You would check with the hotels directly to inquire about their proximity to this station.

    You would purchase tickets and check schedules for trains from Madrid to Malaga by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on the homepage of our website, Generally, trains in Spain can only be booked once within 60 days of an intended date of departure. If your intended travel happens to fall outside of this time frame, you would just enter an earlier date within the next 60 days to get an idea of the ticket costs and view schedules when searching the route on our site.
