Basic hotel, clean, one street back from marina with lots of good restaurants and bars nearby. Basic breakfast, bed very hard and rooms to the front can be very noisy in the morning with delivery drivers etc but if location and price is the most important to u then this hotel is ideal. One other plus point is u can...

This is a perfectly good 3 star hotel, 1 block back from the marina and beaches. it was clean and then continental breakfast was just right, after an evening of tapas. The main reason I am reviewing is that the staff were really nice, help us with printing boarding passes due to Monarchs silly rules about checking in for free...

After a very early flight from London to Alicante I decided to stay in the city for the night to recharge my batteries before heading off travelling around Spain. Check in was easy, I checked in much earlier than expected. Room was very clean. However, the room had very high windows that offered not a lot in the way of...

I read the reviews before booking this place and was a bit worried because of the negative comments. We stayed here for a whole week in a room with a balcony. Yes, it does smell like cleaning detergent but that is a good thing right? :) It was clean, we got fresh towels every day, the receptionists were helpful. The...

We only had one night in Alicante before moving on to Valencia, so we were looking for somewhere to stay that was central and reasonably priced. I would have to say the Explanada hotel was perfect for us. I booked the room on Booking.com for €80 for the night which is a great price. It's set one street back from...

The location is perfect and the rooms are very clean. But the biggest ptoblem with the hotel is that some rooms have not a window! They are looking to a common dark hole. The lady at the reception is very rude. It seems that she hates her job.

It is close to the beach right behind McDonald. It doesn't have an attractive and obvious look, but the service is good. The front desk staff is helpful, the room is clean and big. The only shortfalls are the unattractive breakfast (8:00-11:00), price, and the bed. You would have a hospital feeling once going to sleep. No idea what they...

Just back after a four night stay here and in Alicante, hotel was easy to find after getting airport bus (C6) to Alicante and just behind McDoonalds on the promanade.

“Try not to get room 106 - on the corner, so you get the noise from 2 roads, instead of just 1 !”
