“Great Location and very quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

This hotel is very central to Nerja and is situated in a large plaza that should be full of shops but so far is unoccupied which means that although the hotel is only minutes from the Balcon de Europa it is extremely quiet.
I booked last minute so I managed to get a low price for my stay so with regards to value for money I can't really complain but I would have preferred a more comfy bed and a better shower. For breakfast there was a choice of scrambled eggs, beans and mini sausages and a selection of cold meats and cheese as well as different breads, fruit and cereal so there was something for everyone.
Overall the hotel is clean, basic and quiet with a great location.

My wife and I loved the location of this hotel, steps from the Balcon de Europa, but otherwise found the hotel itself to be fairly average. Perfectly suitable for a short stop in a beach town, and the staff was friendly, but it could use some minor improvements - hand soap in the bathrooms, do not disturb signs, etc. One thing that was very convenient is that they have dedicated parking with easy access to the elevator.

My husband and I stayed here for a friends wedding in June. The hotel is on a square literally two mins walk from the centre of town - if even that. its location is a victim of the recession in Spain and its on a new square that is sadly full of empty shop fronts and new apartments; In turn it means the location is quiet for a town centre.

For the price we paid we were really surprised by this hotel; it was modern; spotless; finishings were to an excellent standard. The room was spacious with a lovely modern top range bathroom; we had a big corner balcony too with a sea view.
What makes this hotel is the roof top pool; Nerja doesnt have the best of beaches so after a day sightseeing to be able to retire to the roof for a swim was brilliant.

Special mention should go to the lovely lady on reception; she encouraged us to speak Spanish; she told us numerous places to go for food and drinks - local places and not tourist hot spots. Really helpful and much appreciated.
We are going back to Nerja for another wedding next year and cannot wait to book here again,

Room Tip: Book a sea view room with a terrace; worth the extra few pounds.

We spent one night at the hotel. The room was clean, nice bathroom. The bed definitely needed a new mattress. I could count the springs as I was tossing and turning trying to find a comfortable position. At midnight I heard steps in the room. I then realised it was the corridor, but I tell you, it was like having them in the room. Ditto bathroom to bathroom. MMMhhh.
Breakfast was OK, a buffet with some fruit, bread, ham and cheese and jam.
The nasty surprise was the telephone bill. We've been charged 1.36 just to try to get the line. Since the line was dropping (with a pre-paid card for international phone calls) that added up to 16 euros.

Stayed for 6 nights last week. Lovely hotel, absolutely spotless, delightful friendly staff, nothing too much trouble, very central location, gorgeous outlook onto the plaza, breakfast very simple but lots of it. We'd have liked a softer mattress but this is just personal choice, we asked for more pillows and received them immediately. Pool area is beatufully quiet and peaceful, and the beaches are a few minutes walk away and fabulous All in all a great little place to stay.
