This is a 3 star hotel situated near the marina of Alicante. If, like me, you think centrality is crucial for a city break hotel then this is about as good as it gets.
In the old town and only 20 metres from the esplanade it is also only a few hundred metres from Posteguet beach. All the many bars, cafes and restaurants (and clubs if you're into that) are also nearby.
The hotel's staff are friendly and informative. The rooms are well appointed and the free wi-fi reception is excellent. Although close to all the action noise from the street was inimal and l slept well.
All the "guide book" sights are within easy walking distance of the hotel - one tip if you want to use the escalator to go up to Santa Barbara Castle (recommended) ignore the misleading signage. Simply follow the main road from the marina which runs beside the beach. After a few hundred metres you will see a footbridge crossing the main road - the entrance to the tunnel leading to the escalator is on your left before you reach the bridge.
All in all l'd highly recommend Alicante for a city break and if l return will certainly use the Explanada Hotel again.
