Arriving at the hotel the Front Desk person was very nice and knew english very well. She also enformed us that hotel had free tickets to see Picasso's museum, which was very nice and just down the street. This hotel is perfectly located on a beautiful shopping street with plenty of resturants and the main sights of Malaga only steps... More

Excellent value for money. Great location. Very friendly staff - everyone we met. Clean, bright, large room and equally good bathroom. Breakfast was a bit limited but perfect quality. Checkout as late as noon was not a problem. Would stay here again and will recommend it to friends. A previous reviewer mentioined a Cafe in the nearby square and recommended... More

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel in a short space of time and I have to say that both stays have been spot on in terms of service. The rooms are clean and warm (we stayed in the winter), the bathrooms are roomy, with nice quality soaps, shower gels and moisturisers, and for those who... More

We spent 5 nights around Christmas at Mate Larios with its superb location next to the Plaza de la Constitucion. We took a standard room and the "4 nights" discount formula. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortbaly isolated from the street noise. The bathroom was not big, but came with all amenities, bath and shower.... More

Situated in centre of all Christmas activity, Christmas concerts in the square, buskers, shopping, families having churros & chocolate in the Cafe Central, general joyfulness. Good restaurants within a few minutes walk. Room was small but comfortable, overlooking the fun below, but fairly soundproof when the window was closed. Good shower, big soft towels. Cleaning good. Breakfast unexiting but adequate.... More

The Room Mate Larios is right in the centre of Malaga, ideally located for the tourist sites (like the Cathedral and Alcazaba) as well as for the restaurants and tapas bars. The interior design is a modern version of 1920s art deco, which means mainly black and white but with occasional touches of orange (which is the Room Mate hotel... More

We recently stayed at the Larios with friends as we were in Malaga for a Christmas shopping trip. We stayed for two nights and really could not fault the hotel. The rooms overlooking the main shopping street were beautifully furnished, very comfortable and very clean. The hotel is in a fabulous location and was excellent value for money. It is... More

Excellent hotel in the heart of Malaga, very friendly, very nice rooms and a very good breakfast, in a lovely city. Lots of great tapas bars all around, good shopping on the doorstep, and plenty to see and do - Picasso Museum, Cathedral, Gibralfaro Castle etc, plus lively beach areas with good restaurants within walking distance. Will certainly come back.
