After a very early flight from London to Alicante I decided to stay in the city for the night to recharge my batteries before heading off travelling around Spain. Check in was easy, I checked in much earlier than expected. Room was very clean. However, the room had very high windows that offered not a lot in the way of... More

I read the reviews before booking this place and was a bit worried because of the negative comments. We stayed here for a whole week in a room with a balcony. Yes, it does smell like cleaning detergent but that is a good thing right? :) It was clean, we got fresh towels every day, the receptionists were helpful. The... More

We only had one night in Alicante before moving on to Valencia, so we were looking for somewhere to stay that was central and reasonably priced. I would have to say the Explanada hotel was perfect for us. I booked the room on Booking.com for €80 for the night which is a great price. It's set one street back from... More

The location is perfect and the rooms are very clean. But the biggest ptoblem with the hotel is that some rooms have not a window! They are looking to a common dark hole. The lady at the reception is very rude. It seems that she hates her job.

It is close to the beach right behind McDonald. It doesn't have an attractive and obvious look, but the service is good. The front desk staff is helpful, the room is clean and big. The only shortfalls are the unattractive breakfast (8:00-11:00), price, and the bed. You would have a hospital feeling once going to sleep. No idea what they... More

Rooms a bit small but have small balcony and bathroom was fairly ok with small shower although no plug in sink and after asking twice for one we gave up!... More

This is a gr8 hotel which is very convenient for both the beach and the castle in Alicante. I found the staff to be very welcoming and friendly. One of the staff members on reception went out of his way to make me feel comfortable when I was ill during my stay here. I cant recommend this hotel enough!

Excellent location, comfortably sized room, good bed, pleasant staff. Small bathroom, no bidet and not much shelving but plenty of instant hot water. Effective air conditioning. Our room was over the street but minimal street noise. But, poor wifi. Couldn't get either TA, which is how we found this hotel, nor Booking.com to run. Server timeouts at every attempt. Very...

Nice hotel with friendly staff. Very well situated close to the shopping streets and plenty of restaurants and bars in the neighborhood. You will need this since the hotel doesn't have a restaurant, but you don't really miss this. You can get breakfast there, but it's a fairly basic buffet. I would recommend to go out for breakfast.
