I happened to stay in Fornet on the days when it snowed for the first time in 40 years in Altea and had the worst rain. The room were not heated - but on reflection it is possible the air conditioning unit was also a heater - no one said. But under the duvet was warm as was the hot...

We stayed here for 5 nights yes it is basic but comfortable, the breakfast is fine toast yogurt fruit juice and probably the best coffee we've ever tasted , the staff work extremely hard/ long hours and are always friendly, the location is great for exploring altea old town or the main front or maybe a trip into Benidorm!

Three couples stayed here for the Altea New Year celebrations in the centre of the old town. The location is superb. The rooms are fairly basic but let's be fair, the prices are as cheap as chips. Plenty of hot water for showers and the beds were comfy enough too. There is also a lift to help the less abled.

This Hostal Pension could not be in a better location for old town Altea.Just 5mns walk to the old church and square past lots of boutique style shops that are very different. The Hostal has nice rooms with large comfortable beds and breakfast is included.

Perfect location in Altea old town. Big clean but basic rooms. Bar nice with good tapas too. Breakfast nice for a few euros. Only negative would be internet never worked in 2 days. Very short walk to main centre.

Parked car on road outside hotel . Room was very basic but the restaurant was good. Breakfast for a few euros was lovely. Just a short walk to the village centre with lovely bars and restaurants. Only stayed for one night and really enjoyed ourselves.

Booked and visited this hostel in July having read with some amusement the somewhat mixed reviews. If your holiday revolves around wifi requirements (not a clue what the strength was like in the hotel - I was too busy relaxing and taking in the views), then this may not be for you. If however you you want a central village...

The Hostal is very easy to find, just keep going up hill. All the steps seem to lead up to the Church square. Very attractive location, with a really nice view of the sea, church and Altea from the 3rd floor terrace. The Hostal is basic but clean. The staff did their best to understand me, but you really need...
