This is a cheap hotel. The rooms were basic and clean and I only booked here so that I could visit Gibraltar (Hotels inn Gibtraltar are expensive man!) and then travel to Tangier by boat the next day, It was clean and functional and is rather dated but is just what I expected for the low price that I paid. The decor is minimal and bizarrely, there were three identical framed pictures on the walls of the room! There is also airconditioning in the room, however it sounds rather like a misfiring aircraft engine and so i had to turn it off in case it either exploded or took off! The staff were ok though and the hotel seems reasonably secure. in fact, it looks like it was probably a grand hotel once however it has clearly declined along with the area itself.

It is close to the bus station which services Malaga (12 euros/3hrs) and La Linea (Gibraltar) and also is close to the docks. There are loads of boats to various places such as Ceuta and Tangier (med) from the port in Algeciras, however I found out that my guide book was incorrect and to get to Tangier town properly, I would need to go to Tarifa (which looks lovely!) for the fast boat, however there is a free bus included in the price of the ticket to there.

Algeciras itself is a dump! There is nothing to do or see here and don't be suprised if at night, there are all sorts of prostitutes and other swarthy chancers crashing around the area. The only decent bar is a Spanish place on the corner of the block which forms part of the bus station around the corner - the staff are nice and they have cheap wine and tapas!

Look, it is what it is. It's cheap, basic and is ok to stop for a night or two en route to somewhere else but there is NOTHING to do in the area. You can get to Gibraltar easily, which is a great place and it cost about 1e50 on the bus each way.

In conclusion, if you are a lone traveller or a couple, are on a budget and you have to visit Algeciras for whatever reason - this is the place for you. However if you want to go to Tangier town, I'd recommend that you stay in Tarifa - it looks much better!

Room Tip: You might find that it's a little noisy in some rooms in this hotel. For most of my nights stay...

Old and very basic hotel. Still better than local hostels. Our room was slightly larger but £45 per night was a joke. Please note that the hotel is located very near port and busy road so do not expect to have long and good sleep.

Paid 40 euro for two people overnight. Above-ground, paid parking is right across the street. As close as you can get (a few hundred meters) to ferry terminal. You are issued the television remote at check-in, breakfast is included (didn't try), and room had A/C and average beds (by Eastern European standards).

Well situated if you want to take one of the ferry to Tanger, Morocco.
Paying parking in front of the hotel. Reasonably priced. Bed poor.

well, yes, the room was not so special, not so super clean, but it is O.K for the price we paid. very good location that just front of the port, the night view of the port was beautiful! It was full-moon day and just behind of the beautiful moon was full size of Gibraltar island!
This city is very diffrent than the other cities of Spain for sure.
