Hotel Balcon de Europa  

Sandwiched between the beach and the atmospheric old quarter, Hotel Balcon de Europa boasts one of the best locations in Nerja.

Named after Nerja’s famous Balcon de Europa viewpoint, which sits just to the left of the hotel, this property has one of the best locations in town.

The hotel is built onto the cliff face, and has a bit of a topsy-turvy layout. The reception and pool are up on the sixth floor, at street level, while the beach and restaurant are down on the bottom level.

Like an old glove!

Forgive the title if it offends. I have been staying at the "Balcon" for many years at this stage the last time earlier this month. The real test came last year when I decided to go to the Balcon on my own after my wife had passed away very suddenly. The reception was amazing from the Staff, many of them old friends, from friends whom we had made over the years as fellow guests and from owners and staff at Resteraunts and shops around Nerja. There is a very good selection of Shops and Resteraunts near the Hotel on mainly pedestrian Streets. Back to the Hotel. It is very comfortable, clean and well appointed. If you like a sea view you are lulled to sleep by crashing waves or quiet lapping ones on the beach. The lift brings you to within 20 Mtrs of the dining room and to the beach with loungers on sand or tiles and resteraunt/bar within arms reach! What more could one ask of an Hotel?More

Nice cocktails

Stopped in as non residents to the bar for a cocktail. It is a nice place to sit and watch the day go by and has great views of the coastline and the mountains, prices were reasonable for a hotel bar especially given its central location right on the balcon de Europa (as the hotel name would suggest).

late break

We found this hotel very comfortable, but the evening meals were very disappointing for a 4 star hotel. We also thought a little entertainment , piano bar, would have been nice. The position of this hotel is the best in Nerja though.More

Stayed at the Balcon in March 2015 and had a wonderful stay.The rooms are very nice though you need to specify a balcony room as all rooms don,t have one.There was waiter service in the dining room for dinner which was wonderful.The staff are friendly and extremly helpful.Would recommend this hotel it is lovely with a wonderful position overlooking the sea.
