4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Very good choice for my extended weekend on Costa del Sol. Nearby historical center, parking places were available on the street. Very good accommodation and services. Malaga is not that great, main feature is Alcazaba the fortress on the hill - but nevertheless, it is well-positioned for reaching easily to Sevilla, Granada and Gibraltar which were on my list of must-see. Overall, I had a wonderful exploring week and this hotel contributed to its beauty.

Hotel can be a little hard to find if driving a car. Yet once there it all worth it. Staff was super friendly and the room spotless. Close to center of town and the boardwalk of the beach and port. plenty of places to eat nearby.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have less pedestrian noise when the windows are open.

Stayed for just one night in July.
The room was neat and spotlessly clean, and most importantly had an airco that blowed like a hurricane.

Location is great, right in between the lively downtown and the beautiful boardwalk.

Staff were courteous and helpful, especially Oscar who went out of his way to make sure we didnt take any wrong turns in the city.

I hope to return for a longer stay in the future.

We we're very pleased with our stay at Room Mate Lola.
When we arrved we met a very friendly man who upgrated our room for no reason.
The room was perfect and clean.
The hotel is in Malaga centrum and it takes about 20 minutes to walk to the beach.
Great experience!

Staff members are really friendly and informative, the rooms are clean and offer the usual services. Rooms are spacious and the ceilings are nice and high, which helps if you're not used to the pressing, Malaga heat. Rooms come with air-conditioning and free wi-fi. Wi-fi was a bit of a letdown. Slow to non responsive at times. AC was sufficient and quiet enough.

The breakfast service is a slightly above average continental breakfast. Try the whole grain, mini croissants, they're surprisingly tasty.

Location is OK, it's near enough to the city, the Puerte and a bus station, so you can get around quickly. The neighborhood is for a lack of better words... Odd. Not bad, just odd. The recession hit Spain hard, so a lot of the buildings nearby are seemingly empty. There are remains of-what I think-used to be a soft-core sailor area, with sex-shops and a brothel. At least, I think that's what it was. Not to worry, you'll feel safe and the streets are quiet and clean.

We had no issues with noise or anything (we were on the second floor), the only thing that woke us up, were the garbage trucks, collecting garbage from the subterranean garbage collectors, in the early mornings.

A suggestion: ask for the guided tours. The reception can book you a guided tour to several places and we picked the Gibraltar dolphin tour. Costed a little less than 40 euros per person, with discounts for children. With that, you get a guided bus tour to Gibraltar, with a guide offering you some explanation and who gets your through customs smoothly. The dolphin tour was a FANTASTIC experience, ESPECIALLY for just 40 euros and being on the road for almost a full day.

Great hotel, would definitely recommend or stay there again.

Room Tip: We had room 202, second floor, which is just high enough not to be bothered with noise from the stre...

I am a young man who travels a lot. I have been to many hotels around the globe and this hotel looked good and is well situated in the center of malaga, but what makes this hotel unique is the friendly staff. When arriving the hotel we had some problems with a lightbulb while also needing some extra sheets for the bed - this was nothing the staff couldnt solve in the best way as possible. At hotel Lola, expect a very service minded staff. Everything from restaurant and bar recommendations, to places to visit, the staff will be very glad to help you - and wow, the restaurants they recommended all tasted amazing (and I am a picky man). Beside this, if they are not too busy with other customers, they will gladly have a chitchat with you. Personally I have had chats with all the receptionist and they were all really cool and smart people. When it comes to where the hotel is situated, it is situated in a peaceful street but only 20 meter away from a boulevard where you will find fast foods. On ther other side of the boulevard you will find the old town and all the goodies you as a tourist would like to experience (places to visit, shopping nd restaurants). The rooms are ok, everything except from a lighbulb did work (nothing the reception couldn't solve). Estethically speaking the nice looked well, but they were a little smaller than rexpected, yet comfortable to stay at. What makes this place unique is the service minded staff. Recommended

Room Tip: Ask for the purple room unless you want to live in a yellow one.
