Funky hotel with great reception staff. Only paid for standard room and got upgraded for free to sea view room with great balcony. Hotel confusing with the decor which gives it an added twist, especially after a few drinks trying to find your room late at night!!
Room was clean. Only bad report was that the mattress needed changing as I could feel the springs from it in my back. But hey, Its a cheap hotel in a holiday resort.
No complaints for the price.

Yes the decor is quirky but for good value right on the front you can't beat it would certainly go back. The food was excellent mainly Spanish but thats to be expected. Staff were very helpful and had no problem being understood. Most of the bad reviews are obviously from people who want to pay 2 star prices but expect 4 star facilities. Go and enjoy.

I read the reviews for this hotel before I went and decided to keep a open mind. The hotel is clean and is different with the modern art on the walls. The first room we were given did smell damp but we got changed rooms no problem, room we changed to was a bit on the dark side (dark blue walls) but was clean. We decided to upgrade to a seaview room and were delighted at the room and view.The food was bland and did cater toward the spanish more but we did find something to eat every night. For the money that was paid to go to this hotel I would say you do get value for the money paid , the old saying is true you get what you pay for and this hotel as a 2 star is not the worse hotel I have stayed in .

Me and my friend stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2011. The location was perfect in the old town of Benidorm over looking the beach! The staff were very friendly, rooms so clean, maids tidied and cleaned every day, hot water never an issue! Breakfast absolutly brilliant.

To sum up : great location, so clean, friendly, felt very safe and amazing value for money!!

Will definately be staying here again and will recommend to anyone wanting a budget hotel!!

This hotel is the worst i have ever stayed in.....me and my partner went for a weeks chill, the rooms are cramped and unclean, the staff are ignorant and unfriendly....the food is awful and basically i would never recomend anyone to go here choose somewhere else, this place caters for the spanish and treat the British as second class citizens.....there are many lovely hotels along the front to choose from we just wish we had of chosen a different hotel....but such is life, and we have learned from this one....rubbish is a word too good for the place....Dawn & Dave
