We stayed in a single room that was quite spacious. The shower had genuinely hot water. The views are absolutely awesome and the staff are very friendly. Prepare to speak Spanish, you’re off the Gringo Trail here. Really enjoyed the hotel. It is a little noisy and it’s not super luxurious but the WiFi works great and the fresh air and panoramic views of the town are great. Would recommend.

Besides a nice view of Ataco city, this place doesnt have anything interesting compare with other places... Rooms small, no a/c (no need it), and bathroom are missing a deeper clean. Customer service is excellent. Parquing spaces are short, and breakfast included is basic.

Was clean and nice but noisy due to a large group staying. It isn't last late so was not a big deal. Hot hot water in the shower which was lovely. Great little town to visit. Lots to do. Lots of restaurants close by but if you wish you can take breakfast and lunch at the hotel. Walk to the cross. Great view of the whole city.

After reading reviews in our guidebooks, we'd expected El Balcon to have some sort of charm. Alas it was not to be: it's a little dingy and soul-less. The first room we were allocated was tiny, with a massive window overlooking Ataco, which was a nice feature. Unfortunately the family with four screaming children on the other side of a very thin wall was less nice, so on our request, we were relocated to another room, which had less impressive windows, but was a bit bigger, and was fairly quiet. The advertised wireless internet wasn't working but after lots of requests from us, they got it up and running, so that was good. Breakfast wasn't included, and when we checked out they tried to charge us extra for the new room despite no mention of this the previous day. Staff were not particularly friendly and the room did not seem very good value. As for the location, it's nice to have the view, but the hill is quite steep and I'd have preferred to stay in the centre of the town rather than trekking uphill when I wanted to return to the hotel. Essentially the hotel is fine, but I expect Ataco has better options.

Well i had never been to Concepcion de Ataco until one Saturday afternoon when I went with friends who had visited. I instantly fell in love with the town because of its charm, the people, the weather, the cleanliness, restaurants, cafes, and shops. A week went by and decided to go back with some friends to stay the weekend at a hotel. It was extremely difficult finding information about hotels there. Many of them with no pictures. I was interested in this particular hotel "El Balcon de Ataco" because it was on the hillside above town with an incredible view. Researching online, unfortunately there were no pictures whatsoever, just several comments recommending the hotel because of it's great feature "the view of the town". Upon arriving, on Saturday afternoon, the hotel is a bit hidden which is a plus but does not have any extraordinary front view of it, it looks like a garage/parking lot. The staff there were extremely nice and quick to help out and get us checked in. The hotel is basically an old house with divisions made with dry wall. We actually stayed on the upper floor. However, on a positive note, the 1st floor does seem like it has more decent rooms with an entry way to the back garden. The decor is mediocre, and there is not really a feel of the colonial style the town has. Just a bunch of random furniture over the place. The room I stayed in, was room number 6, this actually was a room that previously had been a dining room/living area in which a wall was placed right in the middle of the space and voila a room was created. This didn't seem to be a problem until the next day, in which I was sleeping, and we had people in the restaurant eating breakfast and making noise right outside the door. This is where the downfall of drywalls kicks in, because you could hear everything, almost amplified because of the thin walls. Since I do not want to limit myself and speak only bad about the hotel, it did have some positive sides. I would highly recommend the view, variety of food in the restaurant, in door parking, hot water, and very nice staff. I honestly am not a very demanding person when staying at hotels but I do like my peace and quiet, especially after a long week of work. On the other hand, the town is great with plenty of things to do! Places to recommend are House of Coffee, Tayua, La Salchicha Feliz, Sibaritas (La Placita), and snacking around the central part of town.
