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 fifth floor, at street level, while the beach and main restaurant are down on the bottom level.

Rockstar time warp experience!
The hotel was conceived and built in the 60s and in many ways has stayed in that era which is all to the good. An unbeatable location combine with good old fashioned service form a winning combination. The sea view rooms have an unrivalled outlook and everything is well thought through and just works. Highly recommended.More

We struggled to find this hotel by car. you need to go through an under ground car park and then find a garage... but we got there. The location is fabulous as is the small beach and outdoor area. I booked directly with the hotel and we were offered an upgrade at 50 euros a day ( we were there for 3 days) It was january and dark early so didn't think it worth the money. Our room was noisy and looked onto a wall so perhaps it was worth it? I was very upset on talking to another guest on our last night who had booked a very cheap deal with one of the big travel agents to find that they had been offered an upgrade at 20 euros a night.

We stayed at the Balcon de Europa last week and we could not fault it in anyway. The beach is a perfect get away from the other beaches, the staff were incredibly helpful, the cleaners were superb and the location is the cherry on the top! Make sure you stay here!More
An all round treat, stunning location.
My husband and I had 2 nights dinner bed and breakfast in a very comfortable room with internal view of a courtyard. We received a warm welcome at reception and were shown to our room and helped with our luggage. The hotel had noted that we were celebrating my husbands birthday and a chilled bottle of bubbly was waiting in our room. I had been concerned after booking, and reading reviews, that the room would be dark and not very inviting. This was not the case. It was spacious, airy and very pleasant. It would be true to say that had the Irish bar and live music venue in the small street behind our room been operating then I expect we would have suffered some noise. However, we were fortunate enough that neither were open the nights we stayed. The restaurant is located with views of the sea and staff very pleasant and helpful. An extensive vegetarian menu was offered, when requested, and they were happy to meet any special dietary requirements. Both my husband and I had excellent breakfasts and dinners on both days of our stay. The location of this hotel is perfect for stunning sea views, and very close proximity to the charming streets of Nerja. A great selection of ice cream parlours, cafes, bars and restaurants and all minutes away, as is a lovely pedestrian area. The hotel has a private beach, small swimming pool, lounge areas and is in some ways quite quaint, which we loved. I would just add that taxi's/cars are not able to come to the door of the hotel so a short walk is needed, with your luggage, to get to the roadway and could be a struggled for some people - although it's a flat walk. All in all we loved our stay here and would be very happy to make a return visit.More
Would recommend a sea view room with balcony, although small they are comfortable with excellent maid service. A central location but may be difficult for people with limited mobility as there is a distance of about 250 metres from drop off/collection with no apparent help with luggage.More
