“Worth Another Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2010

I was passing through Alicante and so stayed at this hotel for only one night. I got my dates mixed up and arrived one month early! Still, they gave me a room right away. This is a modern hotel and what struck me about it was that it sparkled...it was so clean. The next thing I noticed was that it was close to all the sights - easy walking. There was also a free computer with internet access. I wish I had more time to visit this city and I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Stayed here for 4 nights in Nov 09. The hotel is not that big, 7 floors and we had only 3 rooms on our floor (the 6th). Very clean, staff speak good english and were helpful, breakfast is available for 6 euro as and when required, we didn't take breakfast so can't comment on value for money. It's a clean and new looking hotel, our bathroom was huge, great shower and everything was in order, no complaints at all. The windows are very well insulated to cut out the traffic noise. There is air con and heating controls in room. Also a room safe, mini bar and TV. Free internet access in room via cable (take your lap top) and also PC in lobby for use. Only down side was, we found most of the restaurants for eating at night and general sight seeing was over the other side of town, so about 15 mins walk away, this was a bit of a pain after a few days.

We arrived at La City after a long journey and immediately felt at ease thanks to the lovely guy on reception. He was really helpful, giving us a map showing us where to park (which is at the train station (Estacion Ferracaril) opposite for €15 for 24 hours) and where everything is in the city.
The rooms are modern and clean and a decent size. They have a really big bathroom which is very cool - I particularly loved the sink and the little goodies provided!
The hotel is in a nice area which feels very safe and my mum and I walked down to the harbour/seafront promenade in about 10-15 minutes. This part of Alicante, as well as the old town, is well worth a visit as it is beautiful, day or night!
We had breakfast early the next morning (included in the cost of €60 for a double room) and this included a lovely coffee, very nice orange juice, yoghurt, fresh baguettes, condiments, pastries, fruit etc. Fairly basic breakfast, but was good and kept us going til lunch! It only took us about 15 minutes to get to the airport by car, so is also good for people who need a hotel close to the airport, but want to stay in the city centre.
I would certainly recommend this hotel as it's a good price, is modern, quiet and comfortable and all the staff were very pleasant.

Basic but clean 3 star hotel, pretty much equilavent to a Holiday Inn Express or similar - everything you need but no frills, but at 60 euros per room it's just fine.

Location is opposite the RENFE station, ok for us as we were catching the train to Valencia but not so great for town, or at least the most pleasent bit around the marina. However this will all change when the tram line is finished linking the rest of the network with the station.
