A bargain at about 36 EUROs, only stayed one night after returning on a late ferry from Morocco. Its a bit of a walk from the port, but a taxi is only 4-5 EURO, very friendly welcome even late at night, very comfortable clean room. The bathroom has a very generous tub and was great to wash off all that dust after Ihad been travelling up from Fez the whole day.
There was not much left to do other than eat at a ridiculously cheap restaurant and then lie in bed with a book and perusing the excellent free mini bar. During the day, there is a large shopping centre next door, but at night, there is very little to do, but there are a couple of decent restaurants about ten minutes walk away. Likewise, the 120 bus to Gibraltar is about a 15 minute walk away. The hotel offers day trips to Tangier, and given that Tangier is not nearly half as bad as some people say, Algeciras makes for a decent base to explore Gibraltar (and a bit of Morocco) from. Another great trips from Algeciras is Ronda, a very scenic ride by train, and there is also a train connection with Granada, although too far for a day trip.
There is also an AC Hotel in La Linea which is closer to Gibraltar, but even this makes a decent base for visiting Gibraltar, and at these prices, it simply cannot be beaten.
