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

This hotel was perfect for our needs. We just wanted somewhere clean, cheap and with a good location. The hotel far exceeded our expectations - we were very pleased. The location is great. It is set slightly back from the Paseo Explanada de España with easy access to the bars, restaurants on the front as well as all that the... More

More like french balcony. The cleaning is very nice and tidy and the staff in the reception are very serviceminded and good ïn English.... More

We visited this hotel for one night at the end of July and had chosen this hotel for its location, and were not disappointed! We flew into Alicante airport, and were on the C6 bus (3.85 euros) within seconds of leaving the airport building - the bus takes you to Postiguet beach, within a 5 min walk of the hotel!... More
