“City break in Malagy”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

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.

We stayed here for a city break and booked two double rooms.We asked for rooms near each other and with views over the main street and the staff were so helpful with our request.The rooms were excellent lovely bathrooms and comfy beds too.The hotel breakfast was good with no rushing as its available till late in the morning. The location is great as Malaga is so easy to walk round and most of the centre is pedestrianised so felt very safe.Eating out is amazing so many choices of restaurants and tapas bars and so cheap.Would certainly go back to the hotel if we return to Malaga.

We stayed here twice, at the beginning and end of our holiday. The rooms, the service, the location, the breakfast - everything was great. We were able to watch the Palm Sunday processions from our room. Even for athiests, it was an amazing spectacle!

We booked a suite for our honeymoon. Nice big modern room and three balconies which were fantastic during the Feria to watch everything. For a suite I felt the bathroom was very small and would have liked double sinks.breakfast was limited but it suited us fine and Malaga is a cheap city to eat out anyway. Rooftop bar was lovely but on 2 afternoons we tried to order a bottle of Cava and was told there was none but they had champagne.very sneaky or bad management needless to say we didnt order the very expensive option.I might stay here again for Feria just for the views. Another thing the windows do not let noise in I wasn't expecting to have a great sleep but I did and the bed was HUGE and very comfy too.
