Reception staff were excellent and very helpful in handling problems and advice on day trips.Comment of P. Nadine , United Kingdom the 2015-05-26
The breakfast can expand a bit more with maybe some fresh tomatoes and cucumber, freshly squeezed juice instead of nectar and some higher quality on the fruits. Otherwise the breakfast was great and it was always nice and tidy. The superior room we stayed in fit us perfectly.Comment of L. Douglas , Sweden the 2014-08-21
"Say Hola to Lola"
We've been to Malaga a couple of times before but this was our first time at a room mate hotel. We stayed over new year and found an offer to upgrade to a suite for not that much more money. Very pleased with the great space we had, modern furnishings and really comfortable bed, as well as a decent sized bathroom with powerful shower and good hairdryer. We'd been a little concerned on arrival that the room (301) was next to the lift and the room used for storage of linen and cleaning equipment. But as the bathroom was next to the lift then we had no noise problem from that at all and weren't disturbed by staff going into the storage room either. Overall we found the hotel quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Staff were all very friendly and often said hello when you saw them around the building. We felt very at home here and were sad to leave. The location is perfect. A few minutes walk from the port area, cathedral and main shopping streets, port bus station, train station (the final stop on the line and one after the main train station if you are coming from the airport). But the street is also far back enough from the main roads to be pleasantly quiet. Definitely the first hotel we'll look at for our next Malaga stay.
"Very pleased with this hotel!"
We had one night in Malaga before an early flight, after a weeklong family vacation further east. That night just happened to be New Year's Eve, so we wanted to find a place to stay that would allow us to experience the fun city vibe but still allow us easy access to the airport the next morning. This hotel turned out PERFECT. We found a free curb parking spot 2 blocks away (though our initial plan was to use the hotel's garage), and it was just a short walk to the heart of the main town square, where everyone gathers on New Year's Eve. The area seemed a little down-at-heel and empty after dark in the immediate vicinity of the hotel but the hotel itself was just fine, and once we walked a few blocks towards the city center it became lively and populated. I would not have wanted to do that walk alone at night, as a female...but some would say that's overcautious of me. As a New Year's Eve splurge, we booked a regular room for our kids (ages 18 and 21) and a suite for ourselves, and the 4 of us really enjoyed hanging out in the suite's living room for a while over wine, cheese and bread (bought at the local supermarket, very close by) before heading out in search of dinner. The regular hotel room was normal decor but the suite furnishings were more chic; we enjoyed the splurge. The drive to the airport was a VERY short, straight shot, 15 minutes by car. (Allow longer at a trafficky time of day; we were going before dawn.)
"Great central hotel"
Hotel is near the marina and Larios shopping street. Very modern rooms the only downside was no tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms. Good buffet breakfast. Malaga bike hire very close by and well worth doing.
"I booked a suite for 10 days"

"Value for money"
We stayed at the Room Mate Lola for one night after arriving on a late flight. I'd say the walk to the train station is more than the 5 minutes mentioned by another reviewer (or we walked the wrong way!). Swift friendly check in and check out. Large room and bathroom. Not luxurious but the rate reflected that, and I felt it was good value for money. I didn't have breakfast there but my friend enjoyed the buffet. On a pedestrian street with some cafes etc walking distance. Quiet. Would recommend.
