Six of us had a very pleasant break in The Room Mate Larios in Malaga
The rooms are clean and well appointed, the staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel has the best central location in the city.
The staff advised us on restaurants , of which many are superb in Malaga

Room Tip: Pick a room facing the square for a great view

Just returned from 4 night stay at Room Mate Larios Malaga. We were using the hotel as a base for journeying to other locations in the area. Malaga is a lovely city, the hotel taking full advantage of the impressive streets which are adjacent. The vibrant Calle Marques de Larios and Plaza de la Constitution are vibrant. The hotel location is unbeatable, and the staff are bright and attentive. Breakfast could be a little more exciting, if you are wanting a full English forget it. Lovely stay in a lovely hotel.

This is a lovely hotel in a prime location within walking distance of most of the places of interest.The bed in our well appointed double room was huge and very comfortable. Continental breakfast was fine and reasonable and finally the staff were welcoming on arrival and very friendly and helpful during our stay. Overall the Room Mate Larious hotel was a big factor in our great city break in Malaga.

We were visiting our daughter who is studying in Malaga and living in the centre of town. We booked at the Room Mate Larios ("where Antonio Banderas stays when he's in Malaga"). I can assure you Antonio Banderas wouldn't have liked our room: very comfortable beds and a nice bathroom, BUT one small window overlooking a dingy stairwell. Barely any natural light in the room, plus such low-voltage "eco" lighting that it was impossible to read in bed.
Other complaints: the air conditioning only cooled half the room. Worst of all, we arrived back at 12.15 on Saturday night to find a loud disco blaring out of the bar. We could hear this very well from our room on the third floor. Fortunately it stopped at around 1.30am, but it was not ideal for those of us not in the party mood.
Breakfast was included but was only "ok".
I'm sorry to write this review. The man on reception was lovely and helpful but the room just wasn't up to 4* standards, and the disco was just the last straw. Won't be returning...

Room Tip: Not room 301 - looks onto a dark and dingy light well

The staff was extremely helpful, they even packed our breakfast to go one morning when we had to leave at 7.30am (and the breakfast is available 7.30-12!).
I am still patting my back for choosing this hotel, the location was better than any other place I could think of!

Very nice hotel and really smart and modern with all the nice 4 stars hotel facilities/amenities. It is in the perfect location in Malaga, with windows overlooking the absolute center on Calle Larios.Their staff are really friendly and very helpful.Our room was big and furnished in a modern style. Breakfast was excellent. You can easily walk to the Malaga center train station. Also there are lot of nice restaurants, tapas bars and shops within easy walking distance from the hotel.We would really recommend Room Mate Larios without hesitation.
