Fantastic location

Posted Dec 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stay at this place every time we visit the southern coast. At first we were unsure as the the name of the establishment implies that it is a "hostel" but it is in fact a nice hotel room in a beautiful location. It shares the same building with a very expensive hotel and the location and price just cannot be beat. There is a restaurant and bar downstairs. We did not have a view but all you have to do is step outside and you are in a spectacularly beautiful environment at a fraction of the cost of nearby hotels.

Pros: Very central location and excellent catering facilities
Cons: Double glazing and a room fridge
Location: Location was perfect but the Balcon de Europa could be a little noisy on a Saturday / Sunday night during our stay late August/ early September.
Have stopped at this hotel before and after initial confusion at check in, as the room presented was not that agreed in phone calls to the Marissal, we were happy to obtain a street facing room. The room was very tidy with ample storage room for clothes and bags and the please make up my room service first class. Believe the Marissal is now a two star hotel ,well deservedly so, but still presents itself as a two star hostel. In conclusion a very attractive building and well worth a visit.

Pros: location
Location: very close to beach, sqaure, and not far from car park.

Solid hotel right on the beach

Posted Jul 26, 2012
Solid hotel that is right off the Balcony of Europe and right off of three small beaches. The beaches were great and the hotel made us sandwiches for 3 Euro. Had a great time and would definitely recommend.

Beautiful spot with a great view!

We couldn't believe our good fortune getting such a comfortable room with a magnificent view of the "Balcony of Europa" right outside our little balcony. Perhaps in the summertime the square would be too noisy, but in the off-season, we enjoyed our lovely spot and doing a lot of 'people-watching' from the comfort of our room. We even got to watch a wedding taking place at the cathedral in the square. Perfect! Our only quibble was that the front-desk staff (other than a lovely woman named Maria) was not very helpful or friendly.

Loved The lo catión and view!

Cha ring hotel with secta culpar viese. The hotel staff itself could have been a little more friendly and moré helpful, and their door to enter after 9 pm was difficult to unlock and open. Also, the food in the restaurant seemed overpriced and fairly mediocre. But the location and view made up for any shortcomings.
