“For the Price paid - Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

I have stayed at the E Studios Benidorm on 2 seperate occassions, the rooms are basic but clean with good power showers, balconies and air-con. The location of the apartments couldn't be better, they are at the edge of the old town aprox 100 mtrs from the beach close to bars, restaurants, shops.

Staff are always friendly and helpful and there is 24hr security.

They are certainly not upmarket but for the price they charge are excellent value for money. I do wish people would stop paying budget prices and expecting to get 5 star accomodation then complaining about what they paid for. This is just classic Champagne taste with Beer Bottle Pocket. If you want luxury put your hand in your wallet/purse and pay for it, there are lots of higher class places in Benidorm that charge much higher prices, its your choice.

Just back from 4 night stay at the Estudios benidorm situated in the Old Town. We only paid £80 for 2 of us for a 4 night stay in a studio apartment. Location is brilliant and you can easily access all the bars on Calle Gerona. Some lovely little bars in the Old Town too, loved Caspers, also a great night out at Klee Kafe seeing the brilliant Sheila Blige and also had a pleasant beer in the Queens Hotel too and were made very welcome at all venues. Apartment is basic with a fridge, 2 ring hob, great shower with great pressure and constant supply of hot water, comfortable and clean beds and a balcony overlooking the street. Only complaint would be a little cold at night but otherwise brilliant. Paid 60 euros deposit on arrival which is the norm and had no problems getting it back the night before our departure as we had an early flight. All in all a great place for a few days break.

Just got back last night. Stayed 4 nights in these studios and have no complaints at all. Rooms are basic but clean and all you need if you want to go self catering. Location is ideal with bars and restaurants etc practically on the doorstep and a couple of minutes walk to the beach. Staff were very nice , friendly and helpful. At a cost of £75 for us both it was definately value for money. Dont be put off by some negative comments on here. If you want 5 star luxury you're not going to get it for this price. We would go again.

i was a little anxious about staying at these studios but was actually pleasently suprised, we only paid 60 pounds for 3 nights for 2 people and it was very good value, the rooms are small but very clean the reception staff were friendly and we had no trouble getting our deposit back.

i stayed with a friend in estudios benidorm 2nd - 6th february 2012. the location was great for us. very close to the beach front and the old town with plenty of cafes, bars and shops etc close by. the studio was very basic and the decor is a bit out-dated but we don't really go away to look at the walls lol! it had everything we needed - friendly staff, comfortable beds, hot shower, a nice balcony and good location. my only problem was the lock on the main front door - if you came home after midnight you had to let yourself into the complex and lock the door behind you but the lock was an absolute nightmare! so make sure you listen to the receptionist when he shows you how to use the door lol! i would definately recommend this apartment to friends who are not fussy on decor. a very good budget apartment!!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2011

A friend and I stayed here the second week in September with a friend. Booked it as a cheapo through Monarch Holidays at £240 for a week, self catering. With this in mind I wasn't expecting my towels to be fashioned into swans on my bed or to find chocolates on my pillow!

There wasn't any transfers included in the deal and the ones Monarch were pedalling would have cost lots more than the one I eventually opted for "Resort Taxis" - they were excellent value at just over £5 each way (I can't get a taxi to the town centre from my house for that!) A little confusing to find in the new airport at Alicante. Just take the glass elevator to the very bottom floor and they are there - the coach is directly outside. I cannot recommend them enough.

The Estudios Benidorm aren't on a bus navigable road so you get dropped off at the top of the pedestrianised bit that leads straight to them. The Estudios have a small arrow like sign beckoning you into their minimalist reception area, where a surly Spanish lady asks you for 60 Euros in case you are clumsy enough to break something (oops, sorry Spanish Lady).

Upon entering the room (which was a few doors down and signed up as a hairdressers!) I fail to see how they would ever notice if you had broken anything, short of totally burning the place down. I dont think there was a single wall, surface or floor tile that didn't display the scars of the former 18-30's haunt (there was an 18-30's sticker at eyeline on the patio door to stop Sangria infused yougnsters careering through the glass!) A particularly nice touch was the bare wires hanging out of a circular housing directly above the cave / bedroom.

There were 7 lights in the Estudio, 70% of which didn't work. The aforementioned balcony door didn't instill the feeling of security, it closed and stayed closed more by luck than by engineering! The television only had 2 English speaking channels, but was unwatchable as a former holiday maker had twisted the arial lead to the point of distruction.

Now for the NOISE - I can understand the mayor wanting to keep the streets clean but from 3am till 7 am, how many times can you clean, clank bottles, clean, clean, reverse the beep beep beeping street cleaner down the street and clean again??!!

Rant over. All of this can be forgiven, however, as the Estudios redeaming factor is its location. I don't think (short of being on the beachfront) you could wish for a better position for getting out and about. You can see the sea from the balcony if you are at the rear of the building (the front faces onto the cleanest, noisiest street in Europe!) Don't bother with the 2 ringed hob or the 1970's microwave; there's a plethera of eateries underneath, to the front, back and slantways from the Estudios. You might go without sleep but you can powernap in a queue for a pizza under your room!

Check out was excellent. The surly Lady was obviously having her broom serviced the morning we left and we were checked out by a very cheery chappy who waived the 10 Euro fine for breaking a balcony chair which exploded when I half looked at it. This tortured chair had seen more sun than Judith Chalmers skin and was probably as brittle.

In short, would I return............... probably not. I wouldn't say a resounding never as some on here have said. All I will say is it wouldn't be my first choice, but don't let it put you off as the ying / yang element somehow leaves you feeling like you are being overly critical to what is really just a bed and a shower.

when the coach driver pulled up outside these apartments i thought he had taken us to the wrong place, i actually thought jeremy beadle was going to pop his head round the corner and say your not here really. the rooms where small and very very basic not much room to swing a cat. the only good thing was the beds and the air con. the room are in need of a revamp there was wires showing by the door entrance in the room, hole in wall, cracked ceilings. some of the staff were rude. the only nice area was the reception area which was clean and tidy.
