    Our opinion

    Molina Lario is a luxury contemporary hotel, perfect for those looking for a blend of beach and city holiday.

    Hotel description

    The four star Molina Lario in Malaga is a luxurious hotel that is best-suited to those who enjoy city breaks and a cosmopolitan lifestyle, situated in the city's old quarter just a short distance from cultural spots such as the Picasso Museum, the historic city centre, and the beautiful port; it is also well-placed for self-guided exploration of Andalucia, being as close as it is to Granada, Gibraltar, Ronda, Marbella, and Seville. Set in a combination of two 19th Century houses and one strikingly contemporary building, your first impressions of this modern hotel will be defined by the abundance of glass, neutral coloured tiles, and monochrome furnishings. Every detail of the 103 rooms has been executed with modernity and luxury in mind. In-keeping with its artistic situation, the creativity of this city is evident in the modern Andalucian cuisine of the trendy El Café de Bolsa. Dine on high quality local produce in a fresh, minimalist setting, or outside for a taste of laid-back Spanish lifestyle, only a stone’s throw from Malaga’s Cathedral and the famous Larios Street. Spend a few hours each day in the Piscina Lounge or on the Solarium, enjoying the soothing waters of the rooftop pool or taking in the spectacular views across the port on one side, and the imposing cathedral on the other. Comfortable sofas and bar stools are available for a delicious evening cocktail. The excellent location of this hotel allows you to explore the variety of architecture that pervades the city streets, from the Palacio de Ferias, to the traditional houses that line the Plazas, before relaxing in the afternoon on one of Malaga’s many golden beaches. The charm of this four star hotel comes with its elegant attention to detail, dedication to comfort and excellent service, and fantastic location which suits every guest: from those looking for a cultural break to those looking for a relaxed, urban experience. A hire car is available for an added cost, and would facilitate your exploration of sunny southern Andalucia. Less than a two-hour drive west along the coast will take you through Marbella and Estepona to Gibraltar and the famous Rock. Or just an hour and a half inland sits the spectacular city of Ronda, dramatically split in half by the deep El Tajo gorge. Malaga’s convenient and central location within this region of Spain makes it the perfect base for leisurely, but satisfying, exploration.
