A wide range of things to see and do are within easy walking distance as are a varied places to eat. There is no facility to prepare or eat meals at the Pensione.

Our travel agent picked this accomdation so we trusted her to choose something good. Unfortunately besides the excellent wifi and friendly staff the rest of the hostel was pretty poor. A few things you should know is that there is no lifts meaning you have to drag your suitcase up lots of stairs, you share the bathroom with another room... More

I loved the location of Juanita, right in the middle of everything. I walked a bit less than 20 minutes from the bus station to arrive at Juanita, it was pretty easy. It was not far to the beach and close to so many shops and restaurants and bars. Museums and monuments and parks were all very close by. My... More

Stayed here 3 nights after 10 in Nerja. Very friendly greeting, staff continued to be lovely throughout stay, even on night duty in early hours. You access through heavy iron gates and reach hotel on 4th floor via lift. It felt like we were living in Spanish city apartment. Room was satisfactory, clean, comfy, cool as large fan in room,...

+Perfect location. +small, but nice and clean rooms. +good service and nice staff +we take room with wc and it was clean and not too small. (I don't know anything about public toilet or shower, because i didnt use them) -no balcany or terrace, so if you smoke you have to go down to street.

Really kind staff. Helped us without hesitation to get an extra bed. Good wi-fi! Cleaning the rooms every day! BUT why dont they have aircondition? It is NOT expensive nowadays! I asked for one more fan and did not get it. Bad! I am sorry, I cant recommend this unless you install aircondition!
