From Tutus and Toronto to Tapas

Mouthwatering Morsels from Málaga, Andalucia, Spain

The newest Room Mate Hotel opens in Málaga – Room Mate Valeria


We have worked with the Room Mate chain since they first came to Málaga (and in fact, through our sister company we have worked with their hotels all over the country and have stayed in many ourselves).

The company was founded by Kike Sarasola and we have had the pleasure of meeting him on various occasions at the openings of some of his hotels.

It is fantastic that he has such a “belief” in the beautiful city of Málaga and has now opened his third hotel here (the first two being Room Mate Larios and Room Mate Lola). Our clients love both the previous ones and the feedback we receive is of a continually high standard. We have no doubt they will fall in love with this new one too.

Welcome to Room Mate Valeria.



Lovely to meet some familiar faces in reception!


Location is possibly one of the best in the city – literally overlooking the port and Big Wheel and the roof top bar with plunge pool has quickly become an “in place” for a sundowner! The hotel is located on Plaza del Poeta Alfonso Canales 5, at the corner of Calle Vendeja 4 and Plaza de La Marina – just a minute away from the famous pedestrian street of Calle Larios.

There are 61 bedrooms in total divided into 5 categories : Basic (these rooms face an inner courtyard so have no views), Standard (with double or twin beds), Standard with Views (best for looking out over the port of course), Family rooms (2 Standard rooms that interconnect and a real bonus in Málaga hotels as they are rare), and finally, Junior Suites of 42 square metres and 2m x 2m King size double beds and have separate seating areas. We love the bold bright colours of the rooms in blues and greens designed by Melian Randolph’s studio for Room Mate Hotels

All are equipped with flat screen TVs, free Wi-Fi internet access, well-stocked mini-bars, individual heating and air-con.  There are USB and HDMI sockets in all rooms. A true 4 star hotel and all rooms have chicly decorated en-suite bathrooms.



The hotel is wheelchair accessible and has rooms specially adapted for wheelchair users.

Buffet breakfasts can be taken until noon in the bright, light-filled cafeteria. Wall-to-wall windows in reception invite you into the outside world of Málaga and the port. The Hotel does not have a restaurant as yet although we have some exciting news to announce once it is made official. However, you are just a stone’s throw from the most traditional and gourmet tapas bars in Málaga, as well as a plethora of dining options.

There is also a gymnasium.

Prices vary for each room category and for dates (higher at weekends) but if you just send an email to our sister company at we will get you the best rates available.
