We got a fairly good deal on this hotel room, which we felt had a very good location in Alicante. The room looked like it was a converted office from the early 90`s, the furnitures were quite worn out (holes in the sofa), it was fairly clean. The breakfast is very simple but ok (and the very strict lady make...

I stayed two nights at this hotel. The room was clean but really dreary. It was also small & claustrophobic due to being devoid of any view & frosted windows with with heavy curtains further darkening the room. The shower was warm only for a few minutes & then turned to cold. The reception staff were friendly & helpful. Although...

This hotel is clean and staff are friendly but it is very basic and the breakfast is of very poor quality. The hotel does have some quaint period features but it is seriously in need of an upgrade as most fittings are tired. Although the hotel is close to the front it's location means it is noisy and with no...

Stopped in this hotel for 6 nights over Christmas, it's in a great location and is a good and above average hotel. Rooms were clean and airy and all the communal areas were always spotlessly clean, would definitely recommend this hotel.

Basic hotel, clean, one street back from marina with lots of good restaurants and bars nearby. Basic breakfast, bed very hard and rooms to the front can be very noisy in the morning with delivery drivers etc but if location and price is the most important to u then this hotel is ideal. One other plus point is u can...

This is a perfectly good 3 star hotel, 1 block back from the marina and beaches. it was clean and then continental breakfast was just right, after an evening of tapas. The main reason I am reviewing is that the staff were really nice, help us with printing boarding passes due to Monarchs silly rules about checking in for free...

After a very early flight from London to Alicante I decided to stay in the city for the night to recharge my batteries before heading off travelling around Spain. Check in was easy, I checked in much earlier than expected. Room was very clean. However, the room had very high windows that offered not a lot in the way of...

I read the reviews before booking this place and was a bit worried because of the negative comments. We stayed here for a whole week in a room with a balcony. Yes, it does smell like cleaning detergent but that is a good thing right? :) It was clean, we got fresh towels every day, the receptionists were helpful. The...
