Stayed at the Babylon for the 3rd time at the weekend just gone. We went back as previously, accepting it's cheap and....it's cheap, we'd had quite good time there despite it being a bit dated, after all it's a bed and a shower.
Unfortunately this time was the straw that broke the camels back as we ended up in the grottiest room with wardrobe that had quite literally fallen apart, a shower that kept flooding and spraying everywhere, a bed that was all lumpy (I think the mattress may have been recovered from a skip) and next to a room where a resident member of staff left his TV on loud every night it kept us awake (we even banged on his door to complain but he'd gone out)
This place needs a SERIOUS revamp and it could be so great if they just gave it some TLC. It doesn't quite qualify for 'dump' status, but it's getting close now.
Advice from us - if you can find no other cheap place right smack bang in the heart of the gay scene in Benidorm, and all you care about it partying, enjoying yourself and perhaps sleeping a little in between, book this and hope for the best. If you want a 'hotel' experience for your weekend, this place is likely to make you wonder why you parted with the 35 euros per night.
One to swerve it you want quality, one to go for if you're happy to slum it, as slum it you will!
