We only had one night in Alicante and needed to be near the marina. This hotel is five minutes from the C6 bus stop from the airport and the same distance from the marina. Sitiated in the Old Town it is minutes away from almost eveything you want, places to visit, tapas bars and resturants. The staff are friendly and very helpful. We were in room 204, which overlooks the side street, higher numbers are on the busier street, and I would suspect suffer from more traffic noise, so if possible go for the lower numbered rooms. Some posts have said the beds are very hard, they are certainly firm, but we both slept very well indeed. Our room was a good size, storage for a ship's company and a more than ample shower room etc and clean. Slightly odd was the 'fridge on the floor at the bottom of the bed filled with soft drinks, but it happily took the bottle of beer purchased from the Chinese run supermarket five minutes away on the other side of the Medez Nunez which sells EVERYTHING! No bar at the hotel but there is one immediately below. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, but there is a cafe 3 minutes away in the Calle Mayor, often filled with students on the way to university - a good sign of value - where a good Spanish traditional breakfast can be had for about 5 euros a head. It was our first visit to Alicante but this hotel is part of the reason why we have decided to return for a longer visit, at 45 euros a night this place is a steal!
