“Went in April but would not stay again.”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

My first trip to Alicante was for business and I was a solo traveler. From the photos this hotel looked modern and the price seemed really competitive. However my single room was like a little box, not at all modernized. The bathroom on the other hand showed signs of refurbishment. The room itself was stuffy and hot as the temp was 25celcius. I inquired about turning the a/c on but they said it's not on until the summer months, thus I had to open the window door to get some air however the people on the street were so noisy that I had to try and sleep through it. I even considered checking out early but since I was only there for 2 nights I just tried to deal with it. The upside was that the room was clean, the staff spoke some English and the hotel was less then 5mins to the beach and shops.

Room Tip: Ask if your room is modern before staying and ask to see the room before settling in.

I didn't really like this hotel very much, mostly because of the location, whilst it's quite central, it's in the nightclubs quarter and you can hear all the drunks shouting and singing in the middle of the night. If the purpose of your trip is clubbing then fair enough, you'll be right in the middle of it but if you want to sleep, go somewhere else.

On the other hand the rooms were clean and spacious, and breakfast was adequate.

Staff were friendly and courteous.

It's the 3rd 3* hotel I have stayed in, in Alicante.
I was there from 30th Jan 2012 until 10th Feb 2012 on a business trip.
As expected, there were some pros and cons I will analyse in the next paragraphs:

Pros
1. Location: It rocks! 1 minute from "La Rambla", El Postiguet, El barrio.
2. Breakfast: very good for a 3 *. There was also fresh fruit, coffee, and water available 24h, 7x7
3. Free and fast Wi-Fi everywhere in the hotel
4. TV channels, many Spanish
5. TV in the room: was an LCD one, very pleasant

Cons
1. Since I read some comments with respect to noise due to a night club nearby, we asked for an internal room. Unfortunately, no matter what the room type, there's always noise due to people carrying their luggage, i.e. any time and any day. I should recommend the management to put a carpet in the corridors, instead of the tiles that exist now (at least on the 3rd floor where I stayed)
2. The room was a bit old and no well ventilated.

Resuming, I should recommend this hotel and would like to stay again.
For 42 euros per night, I should characterise it a great value for money option,

Room Tip: prefer an internal one, to avoid noise coming from the street in the early hours of the week end

There is a night club opposite and they keep you up from 12 till 6 am. Avoid it!

Stayed for one night in Sept 2011. The room was quite small but adequate. Free air con was very good and the hotel was very clean. Good hotel in a great location, close to the old town, castle and to the beach and shops. Very good value for the price. They also have on site parking which was handy.

Very close to beach, uphouse staff are fantastic!! But that bloody night club across the road, 4 nights of our stay! It's not the music, but the crowd arriving and leaving! On the Saturday night it started at 12 and did not finish till 6 in the morning!

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the back of the hotel, as far as possible away from that nightclub as possible...
