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. This hotel is part of the Simply Travel range until April 2017.
Styled in soft pastels, these twin rooms are comfortably furnished and include a limited sea view and a balcony offering a little extra outdoor space. With your room you'll get a TV, an extra bed, and air-conditioning.
good hotel good location good food and very friendly and helpful staff.

Hotel and surroundings very nice. Breakfast was very nice too. Third time staying here and will probably do a fourth in the next couple of years. Central with lots of good restaurants and bars. Lots of scenic walks within easy reach . Very enjoyable.More
Always return - it's the best!
Have been to the Balcon so many times over past 20 years, never better than now. The staff are faultless, tota, comfort in every area, supreme position overlooking the sea. Be sure to book a sea view/balcony room, sample a happy hour cocktail or G&T (3 Euros, a steal!) and soak up the atmosphere. You'll be thoroughly spoilt.More
Just about the perfect location
This is our second stay at the Balcon, we were terribly unlucky with the weather this time. A sea view room is really a 'MUST' with this hotel. Going to sleep and waking to the sound of the waves breaking just 30 metres below is simply fabulous.
The service here is outstanding. Everyone is very friendly, welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. We stayed in a Sea View Junior Suite (basically a bigger room with a settee/lounge area). This proved very useful as we sheltered from almost 7 full days of constant rain.
The breakfast buffet was superb, perhaps a little more fresh fruit would lift it up that final notch. We always book half board since we don't particularly like reviewing streetside menus and being assailed by the hawkers trying to get you into their establishment. The dinner buffets were VERY good, plenty of variety and I was delighted with the sushi board, although I think I was the only one eating sushi.
The Table D'Hote nights (equal number) were not as good as the buffet. This is part was because confusion over the naming of some dishes. During our stay 'Beef Medallions' were served .... but they weren't Medallions. Similarly the 'Pork Ribs' were actually just thick slices of roast pork. We thought that some dishes were a reworking of meat leftover from the previous night's buffet. Don't get me wrong the Table D'Hote is good, but not as good as the Buffet nights.
They make some cracking cocktails in the bar and half price Happy Hour between 6 and 7 makes them better still.More

Lovely stay at Hotel Balcon de Europa
Had to make a quick overnight stay in the area and managed to get a bargain room last minute. It was the best night's sleep I've had in a long time. The bed was huge and so comfortable with spare pillows available if required. Breakfast was included and what a surprise! We were expecting a limited choice of continental fare but were greeted with a vast array of choices from continental to full English, so much choice. And to top it all off, breakfast is served in a large dining room overlooking the sea - fabulous views.More
