“Great Facilities - Amazing Rates - Fantastic Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Has to be one of the best service experiences we've ever had. Any question, any request, the staff answered it promptly, and effectively - even dealing with some tricky ones!

Location is a 20 minute walk or 2 minute drive to the Gibraltar border. Also close to grocery, pharmacy, mall, and across the street to the beach. Breakfast was an excellent deal - one day there was a queue to get a seat in the breakfast area, but other staff was prompt, fast and efficient.

We occasionally started our day a little later, but the cleaning staff always did an immaculate job, thoroughly cleaning the room, and taking care of the minibar and linens. We actually took the extraordinary step of recognizing the staff for their hard work and service.

Room Tip: Get a corner suite - great ocean view and sightlines to Africa.

Poor service, very disappointing. All Waitresses are very unfriendly.
The room service was not too bad, but my balcony was filthy all the time!
The location is really poor, very dirty! If you plan to go at Gibraltar, try to get a place to stay there!
NOT RECOMMENDED at all!

I just really cannot believe that they don't have free internet in the rooms. It is 2013. Who does not offer free wifi in the rooms of the hotel? I agree with everyone else in every other regard - the hotel in very nice, in a bad area, yadda yadda. But who doesn't have free WIFI in the rooms?! And then charges you 12 Euros a day if you do want it in your room? That is just outrageous - no one is sitting in their room all day on the internet to justify that price. I needed to make a private call to my doctor which led to me sitting on the floor of the public restroom next to the lobby just to get some privacy. In a freaking Marriott. I guess all Marriotts aren't held to the same standards. I can't remember the last time I was in a hotel where I needed to pay for internet. Think twice before booking this hotel if you happen to live in the 21st century and are going to expect to have some internet in your hotel room.

Room Tip: Find a room on top of the reception desk. Maybe the free WIFI will reach there. No guarantees.

We chose this hotel because of the Marriott brand but it is of a poor standard and I would recommend that prospective guests look elsewhere. We were lucky to have a room at the front with a sea view as the back only has a view of a rather dirty pool and the flats opposite. There was also a lot of noise at the back of the hotel from a communal pool area next door. The hotel is basically an old building that has been revamped and the bathroom and beds are new and of an acceptable standard. The hotel carpark is expensive €9, but there is ample free parking in adjacent streets. One word of caution - this is a red light area and lone females may not feel comfortable on the street at night. Males should expect at least a couple of offers to jugar.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view or if possible one of the rock of Gibraltar. Do not accept a room at the back as...

I love AC hotels: I´m never disappointed at the quality & value for money. But I´m probably one of the few people who will post a review about the AC La Línea de la Concepción who actually likes La Línea. But I do.

Much is made about the hotel being in a rough area of town and that the town itself is a bit grotty. Yes, it´s near the edge of town, but it´s a 15-minute walk into the centre, and another 15 to the border. La Línea is a diamond in the rough: great bars, kind people and an economically battered town that sits in the shadow of Gib.

The hotel was great: lovely staff, clean rooms, a wonderfully comfortable bed, and a great bathroom (loved the shower). The breakfast was buffet-style and fine (I imagine those who want eggs and bacon would have been disappointed), and I was rather hoping that there would be cava, but such was not the case ;)

My only complaint is that I wish they had had free wifi in the rooms. It was available (for free) downstairs (lounge, breakfast area & poolside), but sometimes it´s nice to have a skype call in private.

Otherwise, for 55€ a night (with breakfast), this was a steal - especially when you consider what the cheapest digs in Gib go for. Would definitely stay again :)

Miserable staff, particularly at check in. Hotel was basic, room like a cell. Parking 9 euro a day in hotel garage. Hotel located in poor area. Ensure all goods removed from car overnight. Internet in room 12 euro for 24 hours. Aircon in rooms really poor despite very high temp. Pool was not particularly clean. We were really disappointed but there appear to be better hotels. Not what we would have expected from Marriott

Room Tip: Book a single. They have sea views. Doubles appear not to have

At first you doubt if your navigation help leads you the right way as you have to find the entrance of this hotel via small side streets. If you are lucky you can find a parking space in the street.
It is not a 'grand' entrance and it is not a 'grand' hotel but it is very well maintained with modern bathrooms and modern furniture.
There is a pool. Breakfast is good with real juices and a good selection of cold cuts and some crambled eggs.
The hotel has its own garage in the basement. Not an overwhelming space and a co-rider is a great help getting in and out.
