I almost don't want to leave a review saying how good this hotel is, just so less people know about and it doesn't get so popular!
This is the 3rd visit to this hotel and they get better every year! This year the new Breakfast room was open - Lovely!...
This hotel is clean and well run, the staff are friendly and helpful.
It is not a 5* but an amazing great value 2* that puts some higher rated hotels to shame!
Well Done Mena Plaza Team!

Have just come back from 10 days in Nerja, staying in the Mena Plaza Hotel.
It is situated in a very central location, 1 minute walk from the Church. Great location for food, sea, and shops.
The hotel is very clean throughout, including roof pool area ( which has great views of the town!)
The rooms are air conditioned and have a fridge, no tea or coffee, but you can get that in any cafe close by. It also has a safe. If I was to have a downside to this stay, it would be that the bed was a little hard, but wouldn't put me off staying again.
The breakfast was excellent. Can fault it, loved it!
The staff were very polite, friendly and spoke English, which helps if you struggle with your Spanish. In a bit of a crisis, the receptionist went out of her way to help us, which was very much appreciated!
Would totally recommend a visit!

Currently writing this after 7 days in this excellent, small, comfortable hotel which is perfectly situated. Rooms decent size with good balconies overlooking the large square. Well maintained and clean with good rooftop pool and views. Will definitely return as we have stayed in a few hotels in Nerja and this is probably our favourite. Great value room only although the breakfast looks good. We had breakfast most mornings at the Centurion cafe which is very popular as they do an excellent breakfast, Spanish style, for only 2 euros! Only 2 minutes away.

Just arrived back from week in Nerja. Staying in the Mena Plaza . Rooms immaculate with modern bathroom large wardrobe so plenty of space for clothing . Cleaners were in everyday towels changed ever other day . Staff all lovely and very helpful. We did not have breakfast there but as we past through lots of guests seemed to be enjoying a very large breakfast menu which was self service. Location is the best as you are 1 minute away from Balcon and old town. Highly recommend would stay there if we revisit Nerja. P. s also has nice pool on rooftop if you fancy a dip.

We are a mature couple who have been on the road for 11 months now so have stayed in a lot of hotels.
The Mena plaza is well situated - a few minutes walk to everywhere.
We walked downhill from the bus station - only about 10 minutes away.Our room had a balcony overlooking the big central plaza and was very well appointed with plenty of room.
The bed was excellent.
The bathroom was great with all the amenities - no problems there at all.
The staff were good and the WiFi worked well.
We did not have breakfast - it seemed over-priced compared with the restaurants 200 metres away.
If the hotel dropped the price to 5 Euros in keeping with elsewhere all guests would probably have breakfast.
Despite that it is still an excellent stay and we would certainly return.

The question we always ask ourselves about an Hotel "will it provide what we want?" Just six hours travelling takes us from door-to door to the Mena Plaza. Importantly, it is within the old town of Nerja and overlooking the open spaces of the Plaza de Espana. As a new build opened a few years ago, spotless rooms, fresh linen, air conditioning, mini chiller frig, and a pool on the roof for an early morning dip . . .and all at the right price. It is also nice to find staff on reception who are able to speak "English" English with a sense of humour. No need for a taxi to get around, Tapas Bars, Restaurants, flamenco Bars, Shops and several Beaches are within a short stroll. We have now stayed at the Mena Plaza for several extended holidays, and even stayed in the well appointed apartment. Others, here, have sung their praises for the Mena Plaza and we can but agree. It ticks all our boxes!

Room Tip: Any room overlooking the Plaza on level 3

Return visit to the MP.

Locality perfect as it's in the centre of town without all the hustle and bustle.

Luxury it's not - try the Balcon d'Europa if you want that (plus 100% increase in bill size!) but it has all the essentials you need for a short stay.

It's clean and well looked after, we like it a lot and will be back!
