“Fab location”
Reviewed 25 April 2012 via mobile

Perfect location for vibrant city centre! Situated on very busy, buzzing pedestrian street although noisy the hotel room was quiet when the efficient double glazed doors are closed. The hotel is clean, modern and was as described on their website. AC not very efficient and the shower not great but ok! Large bathroom and high ceilings and the French doors and viewing balcony a real bonus.

Stayed April 2012

We chose this hotel due to it's location in and we were not disappointed. The main centre of Malaga is right on the doorstep to the hotel, situated by the plaza and many tapas bars and shops. We stayed for a short weekend break and the hotel provided more than enough for us to make the most of the weekend.

The suite was very impressive, much larger in size than we were expecting. It had a lovely separate lounge area in the room with a sofa and two comfy chairs and the windows were huge, leading out to three individual small balconies offering views of the main street and plaza.

The bed was comfy but not great. There was also a small flat screen TV (not many English channels) and a mini bar in the room.The bathroom was lovely. We requested for suite with a jacuzzi bath and the hotel obliged, which was great. (Note that it is only the suites on the second floor that have the jacuzzi baths).

At night time there was a security guard on the door which was good.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming and allowed us to store our luggage with them after check-out, which saved us dragging our cases about the city.

We did not try the breakfast as there are so many cafe's on the doorstep of the hotel, spoilt for choice, which is great.

Overall, the Larios offers a great base for enjoying the night life and exploring the lovely city of Malaga. Would book with the Larios hotel chain again, definitely.

Room Tip: Book a suite over a standard room, it is completely worth it for paying that little bit extra.

This is a great hotel for people watching as the balcony rooms overlook one of the main pedestrian shopping streets. It is noisy outside although the double glazing is very effective. It was not the hotel's fault but the second night we stayed a cherry picker platform machine was removing decorations from each balcony on the street. He didn't seem to start until about 10pm and it felt like the noise went on all night. We realise this is not the fault of the hotel but it did spoil our stay.
We did not have breakfast in the hotel as it very central for cafes and restaurants.
The room was great and the bed was enormous.
The staff were fine but did not offer any information about the town or give us a map. Perhaps we just needed to ask.
We would definitely stay here again but perhaps bring our ear plugs

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the street were fabulous but could be noisy.

We stayed in the Hotel Larios several years ago and on our recent return noticed a real decline now that it's a Room Mate. The glamorous atmosphere seems to have gone. The rooms seemed a bit shabby with lack of upkeep and everywhere is now full of orange easyjet-style Room Mate material; the staff seem less enthusiastic and experienced. I would say it only merits a 3* rating now. It's still got a fantastic location, but if you want a 4* experience I'd try elsewhere.

Room Tip: Most rooms are on the street so have good views but are noisy. If you are prepared to sacrifice the...

Comfortable hotel, friendly staff, ideal position right in the centre of Malaga.
Our room overlooked the Plaza De La Constitucion, yet the room was very quiet.
