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.

Were staying at that hotel with our teenage daughter. As for me this place is for adults only, or to stay for a couple of nights. Our daughter was really bored. I was worried about the noise from Balcon de Europa and restaurant, but as we had rooms on the 9th floor I've just heard the sea. I was excited to have breakfast on the terrace with sea view. Breakfast was good. Also you need to know that the hotel beach is very small and you need to be an early bird to be lucky to have a sun bed. Otherwise you have to go to the swimming pool which is on the 3rd flor. I would like to be back for a weekend.More

Would definitely return
This Hotel is spotless and all staff very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them .This was our first stay at the Balcon and was very impressed.We had a room on 7th floor we didn't have a balcony but to be honest did not miss it as the beach is so close and a walk early morning on the Balcon was lovely.Room was cleaned every day and cleaners were very friendly and left the rooms spotless.The restaurant staff were also very attentive food excellent with theme every evening except one when we were served our main course also one evening dinner was served overlooking the beach in El Nautico which was a beautiful setting.Nerja is a lovely Spanish town with lots of quaint bars and restaurants .Burriana beach is large and a good 15 minute walk away but well worth it with its promenade of bars and restaurants including the famous Alyo's paella.The beach at the hotel is small but we managed to always get a bed and brolly and the sea is so clear.I must mention Alfredo on the beach such a lovely young man very helpful sorting out your beds and putting the brolly up for you .Obviously you have your favourites and must mention Rita Carmen Vanessa Mario and not forgetting Andreas he was a very polite young gentleman all in all a wonderful holiday and hope to return soonMore
A '60s hotel with 2017 pricing...
When we arrived it felt like a hotel in the old Eastern Europe. Terrible furniture, bad beds, very small rooms. The best to say about this hotel is the beach. Although the guy running the beach was very clumsy and must have had a bad memory... But he was at least friendly. The breakfast was good. We're not going to return to this hotel. Overprized with lov standard. More
The room was cleaned every day,clean towels,the staff were very friendly and polite and helpful. Free towels for the beach,which you could exchange whenever you needed to. The lift took you right down to the beach, although small was just fine for sunbathing and a swim or a paddle and other beaches were just a walk away. It is perfectly situated for the shops , cafes and restaurants and bars,where you can sit and watch the world go by.There is also a beautiful church, which is worth having a look in,and all this is practically on the doorstep of the hotel and the actual balcony de Europa itself,which is lovely to walk on. We were there the first two weeks in April and the weather was gorgeous. We will be back.More
Great Hotel, Perfect Location
Stayed here in July 2017 with my husband. We paid the extra for a junior suite as per recommendations here and were definitely not disappointed. Room was much bigger than standard with a small seating area included and the view of the sea from the balcony was just fabulous. Spotlessly clean on arrival and the cleaners came daily to tidy up, clean up and with a change of towels if requested. Very strong WIFI signal if required and the TV had more UK channels than normal which was a nice additional touch after a long hard day sunbathing! Huge selection at breakfast and everything catered for. The small beach is not private but the sunbeds are owned by the hotel so due to the size, most people on the beach were hotel guests. Some people here mentioned having to queue for the beds at 9am but we never had a problem getting one later in the day. You have a max of 1.5 hours to leave your sunbed before they will remove your towel etc but there are signs everywhere to tell you this and its very fair. Location wise, you could not get better - right on the Balcon de Europa with but could hear no noise from the room with the balcony door closed. Right in the centre of everything - restaurants, bars etc (although still no noise) and only a 10 minute max walk from the bus station. I would 100% recommend to anyone travelling here although I would say its better for couples rather than larger groups. More
