Great location and stay.
Great location. Should mention how close to airport bus stop in your info. We didn’t realise and travelled in to bus station and got taxi. Amazing breakfast. Really too much. You could cut out the “snacks”.

My room was very clean and felt modern and comfortable. I had a cute balcony with a view up the street. My only complaint was that the shower was one of the doorless ones, so the bathroom floor got wet when I used it.

Pretty Nice Stay
Check-in was quick and easy. We did not choose the 9 euro/pp buffet breakfast . We got a hotel parking discount so parking was only 9.5 euros for 24 hours!We opted to eat at Madness coffee instead which was incredible! The room was clean and the bed was the most comfy We've stayed in yet! My only minor complaints wer how small the bed area is, garbage can tips over everytime you use it and overuse of air freshner! Nice shower and bathroom! We would stay here again.

Excellent position, very handy for local restaurants and cafes. We were room only so didn't try breakfast. Good air con as it was very hot when we were there. Empty fridge in room which meant we could store our water there. Comfy large bed and pillows. Not the largest room, but quite happy with it, it was nice and quiet. Rainfall shower which was refreshing in the heat.

Alicante in august
Holiday stop with my sister. Very quiet hotel no noise from the road from my room. Rain shower was superb. Strangely , there was no fan in the bathroom to vent moisture and odours, and the single slide window was quite small, possibly 40 cm by 100 cm in total, with an opening of 20 x 80 cm . Air conditioner produced cool air even when set to 15 degrees. Bed was firm and 2 types of pillows soft and firm were ideal. The breakfast choice was excellent really worth the price. A choice of champagne breakfast was delightful. Hotel receptionists are bilingual, and very very helpful. Cleaning seen, and appreciated during these covid times. Location to the beachfront is a 10 minute stroll. Castle Santa Barbara is 5 minutes away by tram then bus to the top if you do not wish to brave the walk climb up in that sweltering heat. For the disabled, you can take the lift up from the beachfront instead if you do not wish to use the tram then bus. Not many wore masks on the streets, shops, trams or plane, although this was advised by the airline at the request of the Spanish government. Nearest shopping mall plaza del mar 2 is easy to reach by tram or car in 3-5 minutes. Lots of restaurants and local mini- supermarkets. Overall a safe pleasant trip. Would recommend.

All the staff members were friendly and happy to help the clients. The hotel itself is perfectly located in the heart of Alicante’s city center , made exploring the city on foot more than possible. I also appreciate the large sized bathroom

6/10 Good

We have lots of quibbles with this hotel. In the course of our one night stay, we ended up in three different rooms. Having first been assigned an interior room, we requested one with out-facing windows. That room, however, had such a weak air conditioning unit that we were sweltering. So...we moved back to a different interior room that enabled us to escape from the heat. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly in responding to our requests. As for the hotel itself, it’s in a primo location--downtown and an easy walk to the esplanade. But the rooms are small and not very well designed or appointed. It was impossible to shower without splashing water out into the bathroom area. Thankfully, there was shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. But there were virtually no other amenities in the room: no water--not even Kleenex tissue. The one bright spot was the breakfast buffet, which was excellent.
