Short break in Alicante

This was a last minute, 3 day trip to Alicante. I chose this hotel due to its ideal location.Airport is only ten min taxi drive away; the beach is a 5 min walk as are main shops and restaurants. There is a supermarket right opposite the hotel. Breakfasts are perfectly adequate. I wouldn't call my single room 4 star as I had nowhere to hang my damp towels and so on...avoid rooms on floor 1 for this reason. However my room was comfortable and was well cleaned every day. There is no pool which is a little annoying but I was happy to dander down to the beautiful beach everyday. I had a late flight home but there was no problem getting my bags kept all day and getting a shower at tea-time before I left. I found the staff to be pleasant and helpful. For those who like historical things, there is plenty to see, and practically on your door step. The magnificent castle is a 30 min walk up the hill but you can get special lifts up. All in all, I had a very pleasant stay, despite my reluctancy to agree to the awarded 4stars the hotel has.

The best thing about my stay was...

Cleanliness of hotel and proximity to beach, restaurants and shopsp

Great location

Enjoyable stay at the hotel which is in a great location in the old town, beside the town hall, tourist office, close to the beach, port and many restaurants. The room was bright & clean and the bed very comfortable. The air conditioning worked well. Staff were friendly. Lovely view of the castle from the roof top terrace which has a few sun loungers and table & chairs on it. The only downside was the noise ; this is a busy square and there were two different festivals / street parades taking place during my stay but it was more the noise from fellow guests banging doors at all hours of the morning that was annoying. I would however still return to this hotel. (remembering to pack ear plugs!)

Nice hotel, great location

My wife and I stayed here for one night (a Thursday). We got a great last minute deal on Alpharooms of £36.43 (approx 43 euros) for a double room. Room was clean and modern with fridge. Staff very friendly, location fantastic - easy walking to beach and the barrio where there's a fantastic selection of bars and restaurants. Only negative I'd give to this hotel is that they do not seem to publicise your parking options anywhere, so you are unsure how much cost this will add to your stay! I phoned in advance and was told they sent you to a nearby car park with rate of 9.50€ per day. When we checked in, the receptionist marked directions to car park on a map (Parking at Plaza del Puerto, Muelle de Levante, Manzana - on the pier in front of Hotel Melia) but after we got there we found that car park was much more expensive and would have cost us 24€ at standard rate. We complained to receptionist when we got back to the hotel and she said they gave us a special discounted rate of 16.50€. In fairness it is only 5mins walk and very big modern car park, but that was still more than we wanted to pay, so she suggested the undergound car park San Cristobel at Calle Zaragoza (further up the Rambla Mendez Nunez) which is about 2 mins driving and 10 mins walking. We parked there and paid only 11.50€ for 24 hours car parking.

The best thing about my stay was...

Wonderful meal at Sal y Pepe Italian restaurant on C/ Munoz in the barrio.

lovely but noisy location!

We stayed at this hotel over the Easter weekend. The rooms were lovely and clean, although we chose a twin room which was bigger than the double room. The location is absolutely perfect as you are so close to the beach and the town centre. The only downside was that because the hotel is smack bang in the middle of the plaza, it was very noisy at night and in the morning with all the hustle and bustle. Bearing in mind it was the Easter weekend so there were lots of parades and markets happening in the plaza so this probably contributed to being forced to wake up early in the morning. I don't rate the breakfast very highly - the Bacon didn't look like Bacon and the eggs were definitely powdered. However, there wad cereal, yoghurts and lively pastries do you won't go hungry! Staff were so friendly and I would recommend this hotel for a short stay in Alicante.

large, clean, airy room overlooking the town hall square

The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a room with a view to the square, with balcony access allowing in the warm breeze and the quiet murmer of city life below. The room was clean and spacious with easily controllable air conditioning. The location was excellent- secluded in the old town, so you could blend in with the locals, whilst being next door to the beach and the esplanade. The bed was a little creaky, but the room made up for that completely.

The best thing about my stay was...

The view over plaza del ajuntamiento and up to the castle.
