Malaga: where to stay

It was at one of three Room Mate Hotels in Malaga that we stayed. Located in a quiet street in an area between the Almeda Principal (a wide street) and the port area, Room Mate Lola has 50 bedrooms, including three suites on each of its four floors.

The comfortable and friendly hotel serves breakfast on the ground floor and there are also a number of cafés nearby. One called Santa Canela in Calle Tomás Heredia looked inviting. This part of Malaga is known as Soho. Check out some of its street art on

A few minutes away is recently opened Room Mate Valeria whose rooftop bar and terrace overlooks the sea (and the big wheel). Room Mate Larios, furnished in Art Deco style, also has a rooftop bar. It’s located on the main pedestrian street, Calle Marqués de Larios.

Other hotels to consider include: Molina Lario, NH Malaga, AC Hotel Malaga Palacio, Parador de Malaga Gibralfaro, Dulces Dreams, Alcazabar Premium Hotel, Patio 19 Hostel and Gran Hotel Miramar (opening at the end of 2016).
