Excellent location, comfortably sized room, good bed, pleasant staff. Small bathroom, no bidet and not much shelving but plenty of instant hot water. Effective air conditioning. Our room was over the street but minimal street noise. But, poor wifi. Couldn't get either TA, which is how we found this hotel, nor Booking.com to run. Server timeouts at every attempt. Very...

Nice hotel with friendly staff. Very well situated close to the shopping streets and plenty of restaurants and bars in the neighborhood. You will need this since the hotel doesn't have a restaurant, but you don't really miss this. You can get breakfast there, but it's a fairly basic buffet. I would recommend to go out for breakfast.

Localization of this hotel is just perfect. Breakfast is ok not more. Not that comfortable though to sleep on top of cotton sheets with plastic protection inunder. Welcoming and general service very good and friendly. So for a short stay this is ok but not more.

The hotel is very basic, but it's perfect for a low cost stay. The rooms are small but not tiny, and they're clean. The fridge is noisy, but you can unplug it. Nice personnel. The location is very good, one street away from the main esplanada. Don't expect any sort of view from the windows, though.

Perfect hotel in the center of Alicante. Close to everything but quiet too. The room was fairly spacious for a city center hotel and the bathroom was new. Small balcony was also appreciated. Great for walking along the Explanada and port and tram not too far either. Surrounded by good bars and restaurants.

When we first arrived the lady at the reception was so miserable and rude. No one showed us to our room we were just left alone. The first night we suffered the room was so cold and we didn't know how use the heater/air con. There was a flat screen tv on the wall but we couldn't find any English... More

My wife and I stayed at the Explanada for 3 nights. It is ideally located, and can best be described as a bit 'cheap and cheerful'. The room was small, but clean and comfortable, albeit that the beds were clearly not designed for anyone over about 5'6"....and unfortunately I am over 6' tall ! We tried to turn the heating/aircon... More

This place was so crap that I don´t know where to start. Let me first explain that the HOTEL is false advertising as they are not even on the Explanada Street but the Street behind it. The room was cold and the shower was hot one minute and then FREEZING cold. The in room fridge was so loud that I... More

We were looking for a hotel for a 1 night stay in Alicante that gave us a balance between location, value & quality and after our stay found the Explanada proved the ideal choice. The location is excellent, in the centre of Alicante, a few metres from the Paseo Explanada and a short walk from the marina, lift to Castell... More
