Its a cheap hotel in very good location if you after one day trip to Gibraltar or catching ferry to Morocco. Rooms are fairly clean, nice views from windows . Breakfast basic. Outside not very nice after dark, working girls and dodgy looking people nearby.

I have to agree with the other reviews. This is one dark hotel that would not look out of place in any of the soviet era towns. I came over from Morocco on a Baleria ferry from Tanger. the hotel is handily located opposite the port so I checked in having paid 50 Euros in advance. when I entered the... More

This hotel needs a total re vamp. Nothing has changed since the 70s. It is dirty, depressing, noisy, smelly, uncomfortable, and cold. We had a 6am ferry to Morocco the next morning and the hotel is located across the ferry terminal which is the only reason we stayed here. Way over priced for what you get. Wi fi does not... More

This hotel looks that in the past used to be great and full of people. But today it looks like it's closing doors. They don't have restaurant anymore. It's not clean at all. The location is not so good, the view is fantastic, but the street is awful. It's sad because it's a big hotel.

I have stayed at the Al-Mar on numerous occasions since 2001. The reception is inviting and the staff speak passable English. Alas, over the years I have witnesses this hotel become tired and worn. I stayed there for nine days in October 2011 (@ 30Euros per night) and whereas breakfast used to be included it is now an extra 5Euros... More

We stayed here for two nights at the start of a trip to Gibraltar. It is opposite the port and quite old and tired, but we found our room clean and it suited our purpose. The garage car parking was useful and we travelled to Gibraltar by bus - the bus station is about 5 mins walk from the hotel.... More

Great location. Within walking distance of port, bus, train and centre of town. Staff are nice and helpful and spoke English. It is a very old hotel and some lights and electricity was not working. My room was clean and had a view of the port. Good for a cheap night in transit or the adventurous.

My guide book shows Al Mar as 3-star-hotel. OK, everybody, it is 3 star in Algeciras, definitely not world standard. It is spacy, but really old, or I should say that it is an old hotel, hence it is spacious. A/C didn't work in my room. Some lamps were dead. They might need a overall repair !? It is not... More
