Great central location on road behind the church on the Balcon de Europa! couldn't be better! Exceptionally helpful owners who live in the ground floor apartment nothing too much trouble, they even loaned us beach towels at no charge, also offered the use of their washing machine and soap powder, again at no cost (laundry room was located on the roof terrace floor). Roof terrace had 3 sun loungers, 2 reclining chairs, table and chairs a lovely sun trap! (With shade too)
Studio was lovely and clean, bathroom spotless and modern illuminated mirror! Hot water every shower and powerful too. Beds comfy, we didn't try the tv but pleased with air con! Kitchen had all you needed, fridge, cooking rings, microwave, toaster, lots of crockery - well equipped! There was an iron, hair dryer and iron/board too
We had a studio at the front so the bedroom is actually partly in the same room as the kitchen/dining room, (no actual door separating them) but was fine for the two of us, there is a sofa which could be used as a third bed, table and 4 chairs
We also had a balcony which overlooked the pedestrianised road, great for people watching. This wasn't huge but easily had room for a table and 4 chairs (2/3 comfortably). As it overlooked the cafés facing it did get a bit noisy but these were always closed when we got back so we didn't have a problem sleeping
We felt safe here as our room had shutters if you wanted to use them, the door had a double lock and then you also had a key for the main front door of the building. Bonus was there was a lift too if you did need to avoid the stairs
We could not complain about the standard in fact the new kitchen and bathroom have been done to a very high standard. Our friends room was even larger than ours with a Juliette balcony and a proper sized one. Rooms at the back of the building are pretty much the same but with only a Juliette balcony but obviously have no noise at all
Overall, I would totally recommend these apartments for location and value for money and would have no hesitation booking them again when we next visit Nerja. We are frequent visitors to this traditional part of Spain which has tourism and lots to see but unlike other busier resorts. It's great for couples and families!
Thank you Anna!
