“Book This Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

This hotel is brilliant. I cannot believe it is 2 star, I have stayed in lesser 4 star accommodation than this. The hotel is located in the old town very close to the Balcon de Europe. There are loads of bars, restaurants and shops around and there are few little beaches within very close reach and the bigger beach is about 10 minutes walk away.

The room was very spacious indeed and had air con, fridge, safe & TV. The bathroom was large and well appointed and overall the room was spotless.
There is a small pool and sun terrace with a good few sun beds on the roof of the hotel and it was lovely to relax by the pool on the days we didn't want to go to the beach. There was no pool/hotel bar from what I could tell.

There is no parking at the hotel, although the reception staff will give you directions to a free public car park.

Breakfast was included, there was plenty to eat fruit, yoghurts, toast, cereals, juices, tea and coffee.

We asked for a quiet room and got it, sleep quality here was perfect with comfortable beds aswell. Our room faced onto a square at the back of the hotel, although there is nothing in the square.

I would definitely return to this hotel and would not hesitate recommending it to any type of traveller, you simply couldn't be disappointed. We spent 2 weeks travelling around Andalucia and this was our favorite hotel, no contest.

we booked this hotel based on the reviews on Tripadvisor, as we wouldnt usually look at a 2 star hotel. i have to say the reviews are accurate, the hotel is briliant.

Fantastic location near to the Balcon de Europe, with loads of great restaurants close by. The hotel has a boutique-feel, with only 24 rooms, and i have no idea why its 2 star (more like 4). The free wi-fi, free mini fridge, roof top pool, plasma tvs in room, marble bathrooms, lush breakfast and friendly staff make this hotel a great find. Rooms were totally spotless, as was the whole hotel. Cannot wait to go back. LOVED IT ! (Great for kids too)

Room Tip: the triple room has a sea view balcony

Stayed in this hotel for a few dayss in July & will certainly be returning.
Excellent location,just off the main square. This hotel seems to have it all going on! From friendly staff to clean rooms & throw in a lovely rooftop sun trap with a swimming pool & you can't pass this hotel for value. Breakfast available basic but adequate, would certainly recommend checkin in & cehcking this hotel out when in Nerja, you will be glad you did.

We were recommended this hotel by friends, absolutely charming. Staff really friendly and helpful. Rooms although small were very clean and comfortable. Charming little terrace outside our room meant we could sit and have that last glass of wine before retiring for the night. Perfect location for exploring all the quaint little streets of Nerja. Free parking nearby which was a bonus.

We found this hotel on trip advisor and it took some convincing my wife to stay in a 2 star hotel because she would generally not consider less than 4 stars.However this fantastic little hotel just proves that the star rating can be misleading in some cases.From our arrival until departure it was a pleasure to stay at this hotel.The staff are so nice and that includes everyone that we met including the cleaning staff.A special mention must be given to Javier who checked us in and couldnt have been more pleasent and welcoming.The best features of this hotel are its staff,cleanliness,fantastic location,homely feeling and brilliant roof top pool and terrace.I honestly could not find any fault and would stay here without any hesitation if i return to Nerja and i certainly hope that i do some day soon.

Just back from 4 night stay at this gem of a hotel .
we have stayed in many hotels and apartments in nerja over the years ,this is one of the best .
The rooms are very nice and comfortable ..we had room 204 which had no balcony or view as such ,but was good because it was very quite..
Centrally located ,close enough to everything you would need

Roof terrace is great ,staff are very friendly ..breakfast is good ..
I wouldnt hesitate in booking this hotel again or recommending this to anybody .
I stay in nice hotels for my work ,and as such expect high standards when booking hotels for personal use ..this hotel ticks all the boxes ..

Room Tip: room 204 .....no view ,but quite

We booked this hotel based purely on the reviews on trip advisor & we couldn't have been more pleased. We went for our 10 year wedding anniversary & it was perfect.
Start with the location! Couldn't be better placed, perfect distance from the beach, balcones de europa on the doorstep, in the middle of loads of bars & restaurants. Simply perfect.
The room was very spacious & clean. Our room overlooked the main street yet at night we couldn't hear a thing outside. Big bathroom, fridge & hair dryer. Maid service each day too! The continental breakfast was great, simple yet lovely. Just what was needed.
The staff at the hotel couldn't have done more, even printed off bus times for our return to Malaga!
Now, the pool! What a hidden jem! It's like a tranquil haven & exactly what is needed. It was so clean & comfortable & on the roof it was remarkably quiet. It's such a huge bonus for the hotel & for the guests.
Already planning my return journey next year. Without a doubt I'll be staying here again. I was impressed with every aspect if the hotel. If you're looking for a lovely hotel at a great price in Nerja, this is a treasure!
