It's very dates but on the other hand extremely clean. Each room has a sea view. It's located right in the center of Albuferia...

We were able to book a room in this 4-star hotel in early January for 35 euro to include a very good breakfast. I would expect that the hotel is at the lower end of the 4-star range but nevertheless it is well worth visiting and will afford you a very pleasant and comfortable stay. All rooms have unobstructed sea...

Great hotel location backing onto the beautiful beach with the old town in front. Good food - especially the fresh salads. Clean hotel and staff friendly,. Hotel decor is a bit tired and could do with modernisation but would stay again.
