5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Right in the centre of Malaga we were able to walk everywhere.
The room /suite was clean and comfortable and a very comfortable bed. Free WiFi that was fast and helpful and serviceminded staff. The rooftop bar is fantastic.
Overall the Room Mate Larious hotel made our Malaga trip a great experience!

Nice central location great for shopping, tapas and the many museums and galleries. The rooftop bar is the real selling point with super views of the cathedral all lit up and night. Rooms were modern although we had 307 which looked like the smallest room, we were also looked at an internal room and I would avoid them as although large they have very little natural right. The external rooms look on the the main pedestrian street and floor 3 has doors that open on to Juliette balconies. The low point was the awful breakfast, moody staff on both mornings we were there and poor quality cold items. Try Calle Strachan off the main street for breakfast and get better quality and atmosphere for your money. People on reception were extremely welcoming and I would return. Be careful on Calle Larios, my mother had her purse taken out of her bag while watching the performers.

The hotel is in a perfect location to explore Malaga. Centrally located and shops, sites, and endless options for dining are right outside your door. It is about a 25 minute walk to the beach. Check in was easy and the rooms and bathrooms are very spacious. The front desk was very friendly, they provided free Wifi and suggestions for places to eat out.

One odd thing about the hotel was in our room, there was a window that only opened on top (like the kind on vaulted ceilings) and it opened up to an indoor space... so there was no natural light at all. It was kind of like sleeping and waking up in a cave.

The other thing to know about the hotel is while it is great to walk everywhere, if you arrived in Malaga by car, it is a little tricky. We wound up driving through an extremely busy pedestrian square (luckily the police are ok with it because there is no other way to get there), stopping the car just to drop off bags, then having to park at the sister hotel - Room Mate Lolas. Going between the two hotels by foot is no problem at all but driving is another story. That day it took about 30 minutes to get to Lola to park the car. Kind of a hassle but worth it to stay at Larios instead of Lola for the time being because there is MAJOR construction going on right in front of that hotel.

Overall a really great experience. It's really the perfect hotel for a city stay in Malaga.

We stayed here in September 2011 for our 1 year anniversary and what a great location it was. We first became aware of the hotel when we visited Malaga for my wife's birthday in January and decided to return when the weather would be hot. The location of the hotel is perfect for anyone who likes a city break. It's located right on the high street and near the Plaza de Constitucion. This places it near many great shops, bars and cafes and very close by some great tourist locations (The Cathedral and the Gibralfano to name two).

The hotel itself is clean and warm with an art-deco themed. The staff have always been friendly, welcoming and helpful. The rooms match the first impressions of the hotel. Being very well maintained and spacious, light and airy. The room we had provided a great view of Calle Marque de Larios and our stay happened to co-incide with the 8/9/2011 Virgden De la Victoria Processions and our room gave a perfect place to watch the procession. The breakfast area and terrace bars are high commendable, both offering good selections in a very nice atmosphere. The terrace bar has a great view of the city with sensibly priced drinks and a nice selection. The breakfast is well stocked and is a quiet and relaxing start to the day. It's hard for me to state how much we enjoy this hotel and we are looking forward to our visit again this September the 9th.

Room Tip: In the evening head to the very top floor to find a beautiful terrace bar, a great way to start or f...

We can only add to all the good remarks for this hotel. We accepted the offer of an upgrade to a junior suite for 10euros per night which gave us the room that is illustrated on the web site. This has a wonderful view of the square and also of Marques de Larios. The staff are very knowledgeable about the city. We have never seen a city with so many tapas bars/restaurants! We stayed for 5 days and were sorry it wasn't for longer. Malaga is a great city - lots to see and do but not too spread out. The work at the marina has made it a perfect spot for a sun-downer.

Our room had one of the most comfortable beds we've ever had in an hotel.

Room Tip: Everyone seemed happy with the rooms they had but obviously we would try for the same room overlooki...

We were able to walk everywhere. Right in the centre of Malaga, close to buses, 10 minute walk from seaside, 2 minutes from the cathedral. The hotel is situated in a pedestrian area and is very quiet at night. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and spacious. The art deco décor is very nice. Very good buffet breakfast (breads, pastries, cheese, hams, choice of juices, coffees and teas). The hotel has a roof terrace with a cocktail bar opened in the evenings and has a beautiful view of the city. It is just a shame that the roof terrace is not opened during the day as it would be a perfect place to relax.
