Great hotel for exploring, amazing breakfast

The hotel is in a great location, very near to the bus station. The streets of Alicante where the bars and tapas are, are just a short walk away, as is the lovely sea front. The breakfast at the hotel was amazing - so much choice and it was lovely. We had dinner in the hotel one night and that was not to the standard of the breakfast but the restaurant was busy at the time. Bathroom lovely with toiletries included and big comfy bed.

Great for couple, business and family with older children

Stylish rooms and lounge area. Breakfast is OK. Small pool and hot tub are great bonus although it is hard to get your space. Located in quiet area but accessible to most of places. No Wi-Fi and Safe is disappointed for the modern hotel. I would not recommend for family with small children.

value for money

The room was very clean and had every facility. The room was small for a twin and the beds were rather near.It seemed to be designed for single occupancy, because the toiletries and towels were for one. However, as soon as we asked we were supplied with everything. The staffwere efficient and the buffet was really varied.

The best thing about my stay was...

The breakfast, the staff and the price.

Good hotel - bad location

Hotel clean, modern very comfortable bed but don't look outside as every wall full of graffiti and a hunted building site . Not safe location at all so don't walk anywhere you need to get taxi everywhere, so after one nite we had to relocate to another hotel (after paying for 4 no refund) . Also hotel mainly for business people in suits not holiday people in shorts!!!!!!!! Also no safe in room if you want one it reception not idle if on 8th floor.

The best thing about my stay was...

Comfortable bed and good breakfast

Quality and comfort.

A smart, clean and modern hotel more suited to couples and businessmen than families. Friendly, helpful staff make your stay a pleasant experience. I've now stayed on four separate occasions and will continue to return until it fails to impress. I'm quite critical when it comes to hotels but AC Alicante ticks all the boxes for me, highly recommended!

Excellent hotel if you dont like the crowds

The hotel is very clean, stylish, friendly, and modern. Its on the outskirts of the town so you need a good 15 minute walk to get to the town centre - that was fine for us but you will get very hot this time of year (August). Just look forward to the air conditioned breeze when you arrive back! The hotel had a rooftop pool with bar (un-manned but use the phone on the desk and someone appears) bar prices not bad, san miguel was 280 a bottle. There was also a spa and gym with shower room - we were allowed to use all of these facilities on the day we checked out up until our flight in the evening which was a big bonus; we left feeling refreshed and got changed after utilising our last day fully. When booking, go for the breakfast option, it was a good selection and set us up for the day, we mostly only needed to eat the free breakfast then an evening meal. All in all a great hotel, I'd definitely recommend.
