Reviewed September 23, 2013

Stayed here for three nights in a standard room. There's a lot to like about this hotel. Location is about as good as you'll get - close to old town, close to port. Staff at reception very professional and friendly. Breakfasts offer a very good variety and as it's open for about 4 hours you're likely to get a table. Roof top bar has great views and a good way to kick start the evening.
Our room gave good views of the port and the cathedral. I'd certainly recommend an outward facing room - windows are soundproof.
I booked directly with hotel and feel I got very good value for bed & breakfast. Our room was a reasonable size and very acceptable but there are ones with higher specification. You're going to be out a lot of the time anyway!
It can get busy as they host fashion shows etc but it just shows you're staying in a "hot Spot"

Room Tip: Rooms facing out have good views

I recently returned from a three day stay in Malaga and stayed at the Molina Lario. It is in a central location with great access to the historical sites and shopping. The hotel is beautifully appointed and has a nice pool bar which is perfect for a night cap after dinner. The rooms are decent size and very clean. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: A room facing Molina Lario gives you a view of Puerta Huelga and the Cathedral

We stayed in a deluxe room overlooking a picturesque pedestrian street filled with cafes. Each evening we enjoyed listening to the saxophone player from the street below.The hotel is ideally located in the old part of Malaga close to the Cathedral, many pedestrian walkways & allies, a beautiful park & the beach. Our room was very spacious & comfortable with many complimentary amenities. The breakfast buffet was quite good offering many hot & cold choices. We enjoyed the roof top bar with its excellent view. We would definitely recommend a stay here!

I stayed at this hotel for just 1 night and paid what I thought was a good amount of money to have a great room in a prime location. The location is as good as you can get, the staff were excellent, certainly nothing to fault at all on those two fronts. The room itself however was pretty average. Quite small and dark (it was 1st floor, no natural light whatsoever) and no character - just brown and stale feeling. The rooms look over the restaurant below and the night I stayed they had some function with a video on which was extremely loud. Breakfast was okay but nothing to rave about. I'd spend my €180 on something else next time.

Dear Customer,
Thank you for taking the time to tell us why our Hotel failed to meet your expectations. Our staff appreciates receiving your kind reviews and we would like to apologize for you not being able to have a comfortable stay at the Molina Lario. We want you to know that we are very aware of the noise around the hotel and that’s why we are working to install a double pan glass window on all our rooms to solve this concerning problem. Furthermore, we are very sorry about the room that was given to you but we would like to mention that not all of our rooms look over the restaurant and that they all have natural light despite looking to the internal patio.
We can only apologize for your not comfortable experience in our Hotel.

A lovely boutique hotel in Old Part of Malaga, just off pedestrian area. The rooms are big and airy with divine comfortable beds. The small roof top pool overlooks the cathedral and sea and has big cushions and chairs to relax on. The reception staff were welcoming and very helpful. The food is excellent and good value. Stay here - you ll love it.

I have been staying at the Molina Lario which is very close to the Cathedral and the harbour area three times and enjoyed it every time. This time I took advantage of an on-line discount and this was good value for money.

The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms functional and clean. In the rooms there are all utilities you might need e.g. razor or toothbrush etc. and this you normally find only in 5 star hotels. My room was facing a quiet side street and I had no problems with noise. My colleague had a room on the 7th floor and was woken up by people leaving the roof top bar at the small hours of the morning.
The breakfast buffet is comprehensive and a good selection of food provides for every taste. You also can order from the breakfast menu at the table free of extra charge. The coffee machine is a bit slow and at busy times queues form because of this.
There is a bar with a magnificent view on the roof top and prices are not too expensive.
The pool at the roof top is quite small and you really can't swim there. There is a big gym but this costs an extra € 12 per go.
Staff are friendly, but could do a bit more to make guests welcome. At the chaeck in they also could volunteer the information about the free wifi.
All in all I would go there again.

We stayed at this hotel for two weeks on a room only basis. We had a superior room which gave us tea and coffee making facilities and a room in the older part of the hotel with a balcony looking out on the side street. The room was very well appointed kept very clean and came with a very comfortable bed. The a/c was very efficient and almost noiseless. Hotel staff were great and very helpful. The location was perfect for the old part of town, close to the Cathedral and the Picasso museum. A good beach was not far away.
The roof terrace had lovely views and was great for evening drinks. It had a small pool but the sunbathing area was small.
We did take a breakfast in the hotel on our last day and it was good with plenty of choice.

Room Tip: Choose a superior room for tea and coffee making facilities.
