so pretty much the only negative i could find was the dark entrance hall in the building. made it tricky to manouvre in and out and lock up etc. Aside from that, I had a better experience here than I have had at most hotels. Host is absolutely wonderful and accommodating! Beautiful, absolutely perfectly positioned place! GREAT value for money.... More

Pension San Nicolas is perfectly close located to the old city and the beach. Caroline and her team is very friendly and helpful - already before my arrival I received tips via email. The room was small but very clean and absolute adequate for staying there overnight.

This is a lovely guesthouse in the centre of the old town. We were made to feel very welcome, and the room that we had was cosy and beautifully decorated. I liked the extra touches, such as the books and beach toys available, and the extra toiletries.

We were looking for a base to research a place for sale or rent. This was a perfect choice. 5 mins from the beach (walking slowly) 2 mins from all the bars and restaurants you could want in the old part of town and still just a short walk from all the shopping areas. Caroline, the owner, is very friendly... More

This is a small pension behind the church of St. Nicholas on a cobbled street. Congenial hostess Caroline makes one feel at home. She knows Alicante and helps with directions and problems. Although my ensuite was small, it was efficient and clean. This little pension is affordable, located near bus lines, the main thoroughfare and the central market.

Pension San Nicolas is in an ideal location close to many bars and tapas restaurants. Also within easy walking distance of the fort and the beach. We stayed in a room with a small balcony and a tiny bathroom. We figured we would not be spending much time in the room so the size didn't matter. We kept the balcony... More

If I can, I let the guests choose betwen the double with bathroom with balcony and the other double without balcony but with bigger bathroom, always informing of course that the weekends are noisy as we are the party zone!

In late July there is construction going on in the building (which obviously the hostal can't control) but be aware if you're looking to sleep past 9am. It was only really disruptive one morning. That being said, I really enjoyed my stay, very comfortable. The one-man room is tiny but comfortable, it has all you need, a small bed, good... More
