Hotel Balcón de Europa

Costa Del Sol, Nerja

The friendly and intimate Hotel Balcón de Europa has an enviable location in a pedestrianised area in the historic centre of Nerja, where it commands the most stunning panoramic views of the coast. Named after the 'Balcón de Europa' viewpoint, this is a highly commended hotel with a charming, relaxed, Spanish atmosphere and friendly staff. The beach and all of Nerja's attractions are, quite literally, on your doorstep. Guest rooms are well appointed with pleasant pine furniture. We recommend upgrading to a sea view room so that you can enjoy the superb views from your private balcony.


The hotel has 111 rooms, 10 floors and 2 lifts.

Nerja's appeal lies in its traditional, small-town charm, feeling a little like an undiscovered gem among the Costa del Sol's popular resorts. Wrapped in lush, rugged countryside and scattered with historic sites, Nerja is a firm favourite with visitors curious about culture as well as beaches. Set into the dramatic, rocky coast is the Balcón de Europa, the focal point of the town that provides spectacular views across the coast. There are plenty of places to eat and drink around the viewpoint, where you can soak up the sights and the atmosphere. Nerja is also famous across Spain for the mysterious Cuevas de Nerja - vast caves dating back millennia and filled with haunting rock formations. When you're ready to take a breather, you can have your pick of beaches, from big stretches of sand to little coves complete with chiringuitos - tiny beach cafes serving cold drinks and snacks.
