“Charged extra on arrival!”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

On arrival we were given a room with a balcony overlooking an ugly shaft. When asked to get a room with some sort of a view we were told that since we booked the accommodation with booking.com we would get this type of room, however if we pay an extra 11 euros a night we would get a room with some view! We felt cheated!

Two night stay at the Marissal. Very clean, comfortable room in a great location. Gorgeous view from room out onto the Balcon. Highly recommended and good value. 10% discount on purchases from bar below - great coffee! Good wi-fi connection.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for a sea view room.

We had a great stay at Hostal Marissal last summer. The location was perfect, right on the Balcon de Europa and next to the beach, at a very good price (£55). The room was clean and nicely decorated. Would definitely go back!

This was a really memorable place to stay. It is right on the Balcon de Europa! Carlos and his staff were friendly and courteous. €60 (+10%) for a twin room was great value. The room was large,spotlessly clean, with heating / air con and TV.
This was so good that we've already booked a stay there in summer.

Room Tip: The only difficulty with all the hotels in the area of the "Balcon de Europa" is lack of...

What a fantastic location! Close to everything! We stayed in the unbelievably spacious and clean two bedroom, two bath apartment with a wonderful view in July 2011. The wi-fi worked well. The hotel is a 10-15 minute walk to the bus stop.

We were only in Nerja for a few days and wished we could have stayed for a longer period of time.

We will definitely stay here again!

This is the one hotel that Brits flock to as a result of being highly rated in Rough Guide and here on Trip Advisor (though now slipped down the ranking) The owner and his wife were typical Spanish business people,a bit morose and surly.However the other staff were good..It took an age to get booked in..The room was moderate in size with sea views..Not 100% clean,but pretty good..The hot water in the shower kept changing temps and pressure and the Shower head did not fit on the hook properly so everytime pressure increased the head came flying off it's hook..No Britis TV channels in spite of 80% of it's customers being Brits..Internet was excellent as was food in restuarent .However the 5euro breakfast paid with the fee turned out to be 2 euro in value..Noise was a problem as it has the awful all ceramic interior that sends the slightest noise beaming through the corridors..l asked the waiter why in spite of having so many Brits stay thee,the hotel uses horrible long life milk for the tea..His answer was because it is more expensive..The Spanish can be a stubborn lot at times..Decent to good rather than excellent..The best bit is the actual dining and drinkings areas,which are roomy relaxing and have restful music played at low volume

Room Tip: Insist on not having the breakfast in the price as the breakfast menu is very good and for the same...

Could not believe this location for the price. You are right at Balcon del Europa. Soooo handy!

Rooms were pleasant, neat and clean. One warning: our Garmin did not reflect that the streets in the area are walking only. One needs to head DIRECTLY to the city car park and then walk the last two short blocks

Room Tip: Streets in the area are walking ONLY
