48 hours before our flight to Malaga, Room mate Larios emailed to say how much they were looking forward to welcoming us. When we actually arrived, however, it seemed they didn't want to welcome us at all; the hotel was full and they'd moved us to a different one.
That, however, was emphatically the end of the bad news. We were moved to their companion hotel, Room Mate Lola, on the other side of the Alamada Principal, nearer the docks. They were very keen to make amends and gave us a suite, free breakfast and free parking.
Ten days later, on our return to Malaga, we did then stay at the Larios and found it to be very impressive. Its chief advantage over its Room Mate stablemate is location, location and location. Sited near the top of the Calle Marques de Larios, near the Plaza de la Constitucion, the Larios is perfectly situated with the cathedral, the fashionable shopping district, the atmospheric alleys around the Pasaje de Chinitas and the stunning new Thyssen museum all on its doorstep. The hotel itself claims to be stylish and certainly is, with black and white motifs throughout and the breakfast and bar area finished off in art deco style. Our room was fine (still compensating wildly, they'd given us another suite) and the Room Mate beds were the most comfortable we found in Andalucia.
