Me and my friend were travelling across France and Spain for three weeks, with a little budget. Pensión San Nicolas was by far the most beautiful and nicest place to stay we had for that less money! The woman who hosted us was very friendly, very nice and very patient. She also was very helpful because of all the tips... More

Nice, cozy, clean pensjonat.Położony near the beach and the main attractions of Alicante. The room we stayed in was comfortable. He had a kettle and cups, so when we woke in the morning to "wake up" to the freshly brewed coffee.

Just back from holiday in Alicante and can recommend this pension for perfect old town location, room equipment and price balance. Room are very lively decorated, my private bathroom was quite spacy and perfectly equiped, I would rather tell, it was much better equiped than some 2-3* hotels. The only thing is on Friday and Saturday night it is quite... More

Excellent place to stay!!! Perfect value for money! Very nice nad cosy pension in the middle of everything: surrounded by charming streets of the Old Town, within a short walking range to the sandy beach, Santa Barbara castle, Explanada de Espana and all other city attractions. Plenty of restaurants and bars just round a corner. Room was spotlessly clean with... More

This accomodation is right in the middle of Down town - towards the Sct Nicolas Cathedral. Caroline meets you in the reception in the most kind and helpful way. The rooms are very nice - really tasteful decorated and I really enjoyed staying at San Nicolas. Already looking forward to return to Alicante. Best wishes from Ingrid

We generally like to stay in local establishments rather than American chain hotels when we travel abroad. We have stayed in our fair share of small, family-run pensions and generally enjoy that. Unfortunately, this was not one of our better experiences. First of all, the entry was very dim and not overly clean. We never saw anyone except the maid... More

Excellent place to stay. Do not be put off by the exterior and lack of easily accessible foyer. Great central location, in old City, Near all places - very short walk to the beach, port, tram stops, buses and train station a little further. Restaurants and bars all around - spoilt for choice!

It would be difficult to find a better position for accommodation in Alicante. San Nicholas is right next to the San Nicholas church. Turn left and you head down to the beach in 5 minutes and turn right and you head up to the castle. It is within the ' Old City ' area and this is where it all... More

I stayed there for 4 nights on my trip around Spain. I had a single room with private bathroom and I was surprised how nice it looked. All those little details in the rooms made this look like a proper hotel room. The owner was really really nice and helped me everything I needed, and spoke brilliant English. Location was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The pension is a little hotel of 8 bedrooms (4 doubles, 2 singles, 1 for 3 persons and 1 for 4 persons). 5 of the bedrooms have got their own private bathroom and the 3 remaining are sharing 2 bathrooms. The pension is located in the heart of the old town, just behind the Cathedral San Nicolas. It´s next to all the bars, cafes and restaurants. In 5 minutes walk from here you are at the Alicante beach El Postiguet and next to all the site of interests....the port, the castle Santa Barbara, the old quarter Santa Cruz, the main street La Rambla, the theatre, the town hall, the Tram which takes you to the beach of San Juan & Campello. The pension is managed by its owner, Caroline, and its aim is to be as welcoming and helpful as possible offering a great range of tips and advises on your arrival in Alicante. As the pension is next to the night bars, at week ends some of the rooms are noisy but this is perfect for party goers or heavy sleepers! The reception opening hours are 10h30 - 23h00. The hosts are given a set of keys on arrival which allow them to enter anytime...just like at home and that´s the aim of this small place....for you to feel just like at home! ... more   less
