Four of us stayed here for 5 nights in February, and it exceeded all expectations. We had requested 2 bedrooms on an upper floor, and we had rooms next door to each other on the 7th, the highest level for rooms. We had booked standard rooms, and didn't need for more. Contemporary decoration, firm but comfortable beds - we also asked for mattress toppers in advance, modern, clean bathroom and bathrobes and even a kettle with tea and coffee - what more could you want?

As per other reviews, staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were of a good standard and plenty of variety. Hot food was bacon, scrambled eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms, but you could order omelettes, boiled or fried eggs. Buffet also included a cold selection of meats, cheeses, smoked salmon, yoghurt and fruit (fab strawberries). Good coffee with a selection of Nespresso capsules.

The hotel itself has a small rooftop pool (though the weather was a bit chilly for a dip) and has a few outside patio areas on levels 6,7 and 8 for sitting outdoors. It also has free wifi, and a couple of PCs with printers where you can print boarding passes etc.

Location was excellent, just a short stroll into the old town, perfect for a walk along the front, and very near to the bus terminal for buses along the coast.

Malaga is a great place for a short break, lots to do, lovely shops and outstanding tapas bars and restaurants. This was our second visit and we are already planning our return and will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful hotel with large cool lobby right in the shopping district. On the roof there is an outdoor swimming pool with a view on the cathedral, which is only a few minutes away. Rooms are large enough, bathroom is clean and has several free products, like a toothbrush and comb along with the usual shampoo. Every day the room is cleaned, bedlinen is changed as well as all the towels. I find this unnecessary, but that is a personal choice. A bottle of water and a chocolate is offered on your first day. The hotel is extremely clean and personnel is friendly and speaks English well enough, contrary to the majority of the Malagans. The bar and restaurant is very nice too with cosy leather seats. Breakfast is not cheap, but is extensive. One large disadvantage I found the noise from the street: people shouting, construction work deep into the night, car engines running for hours, empty glass bottles being thrown into a bin, etc. Having to keep the window closed, there was no fresh air and it was too warm in the room. Overall, a hotel I would use again, if I could get a room on the patio side.

Very clean modern hotel. First impressions were 10/10. Reception staff Javier in particular offered exceptional service. We opted for a room upgrade and were not disappointed. Our room was very spacious with spectacular views over the port with lots of extras, complimentary decanter or whiskey, robes, slippers and lots of toiletries. Bar is very comfortable and inviting with lots of choice. Breakfast offers an excellent selection something for everyone! Would made the trip memorable was the quality of staff, so very friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble . Definitely would recommend this hotel to everyone. I will certainly be visiting again.

Room Tip: Check out the upgrades, corner suites offer spectacular views over port and we stayed on 7th floor and slept with window open and were not disturbed by noise from the traffic.

Molina Lario, is centrally situated right next to the Malaga Cathedral. Lovely room, great breakfast and greate staff. Would definitely stay there again. Relaxed at the bar every night after walking round the shops and tapas bars, all conveniently situated in the hotel's vicinity.

Room Tip: We were on a budget room - no view but completely satisfied with it.

Hotel was in great location. Superior room was of good standard with lots of extras such as dressing gowns & toiletries. Bar area relaxed atmosphere with lovely tapas. Valet parking was convenient. Hotel situated close to port, cathedral & near to shops. Lots of cafes & restaurants nearby. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Recommend an upgrade to a superior room. We requested a double room as it was our anniversary but we were not allocated one.
