... home. Got back and Les couldn't believe we were home so early so got some cash from home and headed back down to the waterfront. Had a couple of drinks at a couple of different bars and people watched. All the black people are out along the footpath with their sheets, selling handbags, t-shirts, braiding hair etc.. We noticed one girl who was selling some bracelets get a bit stressed out and was trying to hurry her customer up, as soon as she paid she whipped all her stuff away ...
... in Spanish to them, they haven't even heard of Australia. One person thought it was a town in northern Spain.
So yeah most of Malaga was a joke; just getting wasted, sweating profusely in the heat, enduring reggaeton music at the clubs, staying out till sunrise, then sleeping till the afternoon. Only other stuff we did was hit the beach, with its ****** sand and ...

From there, we entered the palace which was made up of several buildings. The plaster on the walls was varied on every wall in every room and it was incredibly intricate. The original colours remained in part on some of the walls and amazing that it has survived to this day. We saw where ...

The arrogance of this particular group is unsurpassed. I hand him a tissue. He doesn't thank me, nor does the lady who I had grabbed to save her from falling. I think they turn back at this point and retrace their steps. We continue for the further hour it takes to complete the walk. We laugh, and we didn't see the lizard.

What a small world we live in. We talk about the dogs with one couple about our fear of the caterpillars and they tell us ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Room Mate Larios Málaga
Hotel Larios is a modern hotel with an art deco design. As mentioned in other reviews its location can't be faulted as its right on the main shopping street although we weren't disturbed by noise coming from the street. In fact is was lovely in the mornings to open up the french windows and watch the street coming to life below you - from our junior suite (room 312) we had a great view up and down the street. A band set up one evening below us and it was fun to watch the crowds enjoying the band and the crazy old man who was dancing in front of them - what a mover, like something straight out of a Fatboy slim video. The room itself was very clean but not as big as I would have expected for a junior suite. Although realistically the price you pay to stay at this hotel is very good value for money so its more a naming thing rather then not getting what you pay for. The room had a safe and minibar and oddly one bathrobe. Bathroom very nice and modern. There is wireless internet access at the hotel too. Only one complaint about the room - I was woken up at 8.30 Sunday morning by people talking in the room next to ours. It sounded like they were in our room so the sound proofing obviously isn't that great. Also the wooden floors everywhere mean that people coming in late at night sound very noisy. Oh and the lift is very jumpy - was like being on tower of terror! But over all its a wonderful hotel and very good value for the standard of accomodation - I would definitely stay there again.
If you want to be at the heart of things in Malaga then Hotel Larios is the place to stay. Malaga town centre is pedestrianised and all of the shopping, bars, restaurants and the main attractions (the cathedral and the Alcazaba) are within very easy walking distance of the hotel. The Larios is at the top of Calle Marques de Larios - the main shopping street in Malaga - so what you're paying for if you're staying here is in large part the location of the hotel. Having said that the hotel itself is spot on. Our room (a Junior Suite admittedly) was clean and very comfortable and the bathroom had an excellent shower with lots of freebie toiletries. Breakfast is your standard buffet-style continental affair and was good value at 12 euros per person. Within 5 minutes stroll from the hotel we can also strongly recommend El Panto on Calle Marques de Larios for breakfast, ice cream and cakes. For wine and tapas Gorki, in particular, and La Meson de la Cepa - both on Calle Strachan are excellent.
We chose the Larios for our overnight in Malaga based on the previous reviews. It was a good decision! The hotel is of a very high standard for a 4 star. We plumped for a junior suite at just 153 euros a night and were allocated a nice end room on the fourth floor. The room seemed to have been recently renovated as did most of the public spaces. It was a good size though the bathroom was a bit on the small side and had a shower over the bath (personal bugbear of mine!). The staff were helpful and spoke more English than is usual in these parts. The only negative was trying to find the place! The day we arrived was Carnival and the police had closed the road with a metal barrier. We moved this out the way (never done that before!) and drove right into the pedestrianised Plaza de la Constitucion. But we couldn't get any further thanks to the red carpet catwalk and chairs laid out down Calle del Marques Larios. Next day it was still a bit of an issue trying to find our way out. But of course the location was perfect once we were safely installed in the hotel.
What a relief!
Having moved out of the truly appalling Casa de Carmona hotel the Larios restored our faith in Spanish hotels. After a few problems finding the place in our hire car, the helpful staff parked our vehicle and unloaded our bags. The room was spacious and despite the central location quiet.
The roof terrace bar has a fantastic cityscape view.
One of the staff kindly drove our car out onto the right road for an easy exit.
Keep up the good work.
Delightful boutique hotel!
We stayed at this lovely boutique hotel for a couple of nights as we were passing by Malaga and wanted to see the new Picasso Museum. I was pleasantly surprised to know the hotel was only a short walking distance to the museum and other beautiful landmarks like the Cathedral and Alcazaba.
The hotel´s Terraza Larios in the fifth floor had amazing views of the city at night. The day we went there was a DJ Jam session and the athmosphere was very trendy indeed, just our kind of thing.
Our room was very clean and spacious, full of Art Deco details. We will definitely be back!!
Hotel Larios 7 and 14 June 2004
Great hotel We stayed there the first night we arrived in Spain and enjoyed it so much, we returned to spent our last night as well. Room 408 is huge, very modern, with a great balcony view of Larios Street plaza. They were kind enough to give us the same room twice. This was the best value we found traveling to various Spanish cities. (We stayed at 3 and 4 star properties.) Downside... to initially find the hotel, it required a police escort, and even with three policeman, getting to the hotel was still difficult. You must drive onto a plaza. That's something I normally wouldn't do. Parking is about 20 Euro per 24 hrs.
Great start to our trip
We found this hotel on this site and can thoroughly recommend it to others. The bedroom was large and airy and you can open the windows to look out over the street below (although very quiet when the windows were closed) Staff were very friendly and welcoming at the terrace bar overlooking the rooftops. Also had a really good central position.
The best hotel of Malaga, a little modern hotel in the middle of the city. Very friendly, and lovely.
Great Hotel, maybe even better location
Very friendly staff, nice clean (& silent) rooms, interior is art-deco. The hotel is located in the heart of the old Malaga, overlooking the beautiful Plaza de la constitucion, and the main shopping street on the other side (marquez de larios). Lots of Tapa bars and restaurants are within meters of the hotel. Beach in 10min walking distance, 5min from the market...
I had a great stay at the Larios. The staff was very friendly and gave me and excellent service. There is no better location in the city to stay. I highly recommend it for those who want to know the real Malaga and its traditions.
