“Not too happy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

Room size was ok (triple 2 adults +child) and clean, but pillows had a strong tobacco smell!!! we spend there only 1 night we arrived late and check out early morning so I cant tell too much about other services. I think u can find better for similar price in town.

Room Tip: Do not chosse first floor! :)

The hotel is clean and comfortable for one or two nights - we had a good nights sleep and the staff were friendly and helpful. A word of warning though if you plan to use the airport bus C6 to get to the airport for your flight home - it no longer stops outside - the bus company have decided not to stop there anymore, leaving guests stranded. The hotel staff phoned a taxi for us after having the bus doors shut in our faces !! Its not the hotels fault of course, they are apparently taking this up with the bus co. You can cross the road and get the bus into Alicante city and it will drop you off outside heading back out of the city - it will just not let you get on here!!

Due to 3 plane flights and long travel I arrived very early. Staff next door at the Ibis were brilliant - I had a long buffet breakfast whilst they arranged my accommodation. My room was lovely, so clean with a view of the sea! Wifi and A/C worked really well...
The beach is within walking distance, about 15 mins, but to get food you have to walk about another hour (which I did) to a lovely local restaurant.
No bars around, the nearest is a sex bar! Food at the Ibis was very limited. Cleaning staff at Ibis Budget were so friendly and smiley.
I am extremely satisfied with this hotel and would not hesitate to book again and recommend to friends.

Room Tip: I asked for a sea view and got one. The bonus was they also allocated me a smoking room (as I smoke...

Booked the morning of our stay as we needed a crash pad whilst we were visiting Alicante for the yearly Hogueras festival.

Ideally situated if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city centre. There's a bus stop 100 yards down the road (and across the very busy N332) which can get you into town within 10 minutes.

Check in needs to be via the adjoining Ibis hotel (my booking reservation informed me the room would be allocated by a machine outside - which wasn't actually there hence head over the the other reception to book in.

Entry to the room is via a 6 figure code punched into a keypad on the door (So don't lose your code but I supposed it beats carrying a key around...)

Room - bright if basic, king size (comfotable) bed with 2 pillows, 2 medium sized towels, a few electric points, pull down cream "black out" blind (which did a very good job actually).

If possible ask for a room facing towards the Meditteranean if you really crave a view, otherwise, your view at the back of the hotel is an embankment up to a massive hotel behind and is a bit ugly. Basic shower cubicle which as really nice and powerful.

"Free" broadband is provided at this hotel, but speed is limited to 256kb so don't rely on it for streaming or heavy use.

Don't expect to see many staff - reception was looked when we arrived (and ony open for breakfast), and signs on display to warn of possibly thefts from cars if precautions not taken.

Breakfast- available from the small recpetion area and very basic, but tasty continental breakfast with choice of 2 cereals, some fruit, toast/croissants with several different jams, yoghurts and tea/coffee/juice. As there's little in the way of facilities nearby, it's probably worth the purchase (around 4 euros) or head over the the Ibis a few yards away for their buffet. No keys to hand in so rapid check out.

Served its purpose. Too far out of the city to walk so transport is essential.

Would stay again

Room Tip: If view is important to you, ask for a room facing the sea.

We chose this hotel because we had an early flight home in the morning. It was efficient. We order a taxi in the reception and it worked. The taxi came in time 5,00 in the morning.
The hotel had free WIFI that worked. There where not many restaurants nearby so we had our dinner at the hotel. The food was no good.
