“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Rooms a bit small and could do with updating but very clean. Breakfast was continental and adequate although you were effectively sitting in the lobby. Great location, can be a bit noisy but this is only to be expected being where it is situated. Staff very pleasant and helpful.

we took the #6 bus from El Altet and within 25 minutes were in the reception area of GC. ( exit the bus opposite the Melia and Spa Porta hotels and GC is 1 block into Alicante and turn left right next door to the Tryp) and for less than 6 euro's! great start to our break. 5 minutes to the excellent beach and 5 minutes to all the cerveceria's one needs for menu del dia, fabulous location, delivering an excellent basic hotel offer allowing you to enjoy the city and the beach. breakfast is basic and mundane but there so many other places to visit a few minutes walk away it really is not a problem and not intended as a criticism.

Room Tip: 5 floors with 4 rooms/floor top floor has 2 suites room 61 has sun terrace and marina views

The hotelwas spotless. towels changed daily. bed linen seemed to be changed daily as well.2 bottles of water and 3 cans of drinks in your fridge every day. It about 2mins to the promenade and about 4 mins to beach. staff great. beds very comfortable. we would just love to go back next year. Breakfast was simple but good. tea,coffee,cakes and fruit were available all day. this saved us a fortune. Ice is also available in reception area. we just loved this hotel.

Room Tip: our room was on the 3rd floor at the front and we didnt hear any traffic noises at night.

Just back from a 3 day break in Alicante, We stayed at the Gravina Cinco and it was just right in terms of location, price and facilities. At €50 a night it was great value. The staff were all very pleasant, the free mini-bar was a real bonus, the breakfast was a good start to the day, the position of the hotel is spot-on for the Beach and the Old Town.

Room Tip: For quiet ask for a room at the back of the hotel overlooking the yard.

We choose this hotel because of the reviews on TripAdvisor and were very pleased with it. It is a small hotel one street back from the main promenade and ideal for exploring the old town. A short walk takes you to a nearby street and square full of excellent restaurants. We had a suite on the sixth floor which had a bedroom, bathroom, lounge area with a bed settee that would sleep a third person and a big sun terrace. It was lovely to come back in the afternoon and chill out there. The only thing that was missing was a table to put our drinks on. The free mini bar which was replenished every day with a beer, 2 soft drinks and two bottles of water was very welcome and there was enough room to chill your own drinks as well. Breakfast was continental and while there wasn't a huge choice there was enough to give you a good start to the day. It would have been nice to have a bigger choice of fruits, melons orange etc instead of the apple and banana on offer. The only other thing we missed was having wifi in the room as this was only available in the lobby/breakfast area. All in all a friendly, clean hotel and I would definately consider staying here again if we returned to Alicante.

Room Tip: The suite was definately worth the extra cost to have outdoor space.

I found the small Hotel of Gravina Cinco in Alicante rather convenient tucked away behind the main promenade and close to the beach and to the lovely old town to the rear. Not very large rooms to the back of the Hotel ( where I was ) but quieter there - so much more preferable for me. Minibars in rooms and 24-hour tea, coffee and fruit are all offered free at Gravino Cinco. Rooms come with free wired internet and there is free Wi-Fi in public areas. This all suited my needs. It was very clean, beds comfy and staff helpful. Lift up to rooms- all in all a good hotel for a short stay at excellent cost. - Will use again when in Alicante.

Room Tip: I believe it can be a bit noisy on the front where rooms are a bit bigger, but the rear ones are ade...

It did what it said on the can....mega close to Old Town, the beach, to the promenade on the front. Easy walking to everywhere that mattered. Clean. Air conditioned. Has a real Spanish feel. Had never been to Alicante before but will defo go again and will probably stay at the Gravina Cinco. It is in a very narrow street which creates and echos the noise of the city but have to say we heard next to nada from the third floor and remember Alicante throbs on a Saturday night. Would just say it is not a hotel to go to be entertained etc, it has the bedroom and basic breakfast facilities but they all do the job very well, it is the town that entertains and the hotel that provides the quality respite.
