“Perfect, they saved us!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

We were recommended this to stay by a friend but originally picked another place because we wanted to stay out of town. The other place let us down badly (Avalon, story in another review) and we were left with no place to stay at midnight. Our friends staying here at San Miguel called the owner and he was so helpful and just said, pick a room and we'll sort out the rest in the morning. We stayed two nights, room was lovely and fan on the ceiling meant we didn't use the aircon much. We enjoyed our self catered breakfasts and a dinner on the mini kitchen on the roof terrace (basic but perfect). Everything is an easy walk. Our room was on the roadside but the noise was not disturbing at all. Also loved the supply shelf where you can just borrow things including beach towels and equipment, toiletries etc. Hospitable, welcoming and a great place to stay.

I just want to tell to other people, that this hostal witch mean small hotel in spanish is a excellent place! staff is so friendly and helpful.
Rooms are very nice and clean, and the terrace at the roof are so nice to lay down after you been walking around all day.
And localization is perfect, not in the middle of center so you get disturb by all the noises. 5 minutes to the beach and 5 min walk to the center!
Thank you hostal San Miguel for making may stay!!
see you soon!!

I just spent a wonderful week in Nerja and stayed at Hostal San Miguel with a friend. The hotel is very nice and clean, and the management always friendly and eager to help. We stayed in a low-price room and were expecting to get placed somewhere behind a boiler in the cellar (or something the like) but got ourselves a perfectly adequate room on the 2nd floor with adjacent bathroom, and a wee balcony facing the street. The effective double-glazing and the thick walls made for minimum disturbance from either outside or inside the hotel. The top-side pool made for a refreshing morning dip, and seeing the full moon rise whilst sitting on the roof patio with a view over the rooftops of Nerja - with the mountains towering behind and the sea streching out into the darkness - made my heart ache with happiness...

Had a pleasant stay with my wife at Hostal San Miguel in Nerja. Rooms were well-kept, fairly spacious, noise was minimal (mostly middle-aged people staying), location quite ok (no sea view but very central) and, thankfully, the air-conditioning worked perfectly. Breakfast was basic, but at €5 a pop we didn't expect much else. The husband/wife management team were always prepared to help out and give advice. Nerja itself is a geniune place - sure there were tourist traps, but compared with other places in the area one got a real feel for Spanish life.

We stayed in this hotel in August for 2 nights during our trip around Spain. I was traveling with my wife, sister and nephew. First of all the location of this hotel is very good and the reception was so helpful to explain everything we needed and we do not have any complains about it. But the equipment of this hotel required some update:
1. There is no elevator and we had to carry all our luggage to 3rd and 2nd floor.
2. The bathroom required better ventilation to prevent mold. The staff is asking to open bathroom door after having shower but with a good ventilation it would not be necessary.
3. The only one reception and she is working from 9am to 2pm and from 5pm to 8pm. This is not so convenient. Better to have at least 2 reception and they could cover all day.
4. The breakfast is served just one hour from 9am to 10am it is also not so convenient.
5. There is no complains to cleanliness of the room and sheets but towels are clean grey instead of white.

The hostal San Miguel was a very comfortable stay. The room was clean (even had a bit of a bleach/cleaner smell upon arrival) and had plenty of space. The hotel has free wifi, accessible from the room. It is a 5-10 minute walk (several blocks) to shopping, restaurants, and the beach (Balcon de Europa). So, you can find a closer place. But, the walk isn't bad. A grocery store is located across the street, great for picking up food for a picnic near the beach.

My wife and I stayed for tree weeks Nov - Dec 2010 in an apartment San Miguel. The apartment is well equipped and very cozy. The kitchen had everything we needed including a washingmachine. We appreciated that the hot water in shower always was enough and that everything worked very well.
We had a very good wireless internet and could also watch Swedish SVT 24.
Just across the street you have a very good supermarket and just around the corner you have a bakery where you can get fresh bread early in the morning.
The host couple Eva and Magnus was always very kind and helpful.
We had a very good time so we have booked another three weeks in October this year.
