Geographical location perfect. Room top notch relative to cost per night. We requested a quiet room but were put in room 110 which was across lane from apartments housing very loud americans so I don't know whether the hotel did not honour request or whether they thought they were doing the right thing. So, request a room overlooking square and refuse any other unless you sleep through any noise level!

Returned yesterday from Nerja. Stayed in Mena Plaza Hotel and it was very good. Very friendly staff. Beds a little hard and inclined to move around. Be aware if travelling on bus to Frigilana that pick pockets are active at bus stop. My wallet was taken from a buttoned pocket. Also police will not speak you in english. You must hire a translator at €50.00 per hour. Otherwise beautiful place and I will return again

Room Tip: Ask about beds. Inclined to move easily. Air conditioning works well.

We stayed in the Mena Plaza for a week in June 2014. Situated on a beautiful traffic free square which ensured a peaceful nights sleep and yet it was less than a two minute walk to the Balcon area. Very modern in style and spotlessly clean. As other reviewers have stated it's a "no frills" experience but the rooms have all the necessities and were comfortable. The large balcony/terrace overlooking the square was a bonus.There's a small bar in the reception foyer with plenty of seating and there's also a seating area outside the front of the hotel on the square. Breakfast - which is a serve yourself style buffet - was fine for 7 Euro each. WIFI connection was very good and FREE as was the safe! Staff were friendly and helpful and always had a smile for us. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who likes a clean, quiet and central hotel that is value for money. This is the first 2 star hotel we have ever stayed in so we were very pleasantly surprised. Well done Mena Plaza!

Room Tip: A room at the front affords a lovely view of the square and the mountains in the background.

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.
