The hotel is very basic, but it's perfect for a low cost stay. The rooms are small but not tiny, and they're clean. The fridge is noisy, but you can unplug it. Nice personnel. The location is very good, one street away from the main esplanada. Don't expect any sort of view from the windows, though.

Perfect hotel in the center of Alicante. Close to everything but quiet too. The room was fairly spacious for a city center hotel and the bathroom was new. Small balcony was also appreciated. Great for walking along the Explanada and port and tram not too far either. Surrounded by good bars and restaurants.

When we first arrived the lady at the reception was so miserable and rude. No one showed us to our room we were just left alone. The first night we suffered the room was so cold and we didn't know how use the heater/air con. There was a flat screen tv on the wall but we couldn't find any English...

My wife and I stayed at the Explanada for 3 nights. It is ideally located, and can best be described as a bit 'cheap and cheerful'. The room was small, but clean and comfortable, albeit that the beds were clearly not designed for anyone over about 5'6"....and unfortunately I am over 6' tall ! We tried to turn the heating/aircon...

This place was so crap that I don´t know where to start. Let me first explain that the HOTEL is false advertising as they are not even on the Explanada Street but the Street behind it. The room was cold and the shower was hot one minute and then FREEZING cold. The in room fridge was so loud that I...

We were looking for a hotel for a 1 night stay in Alicante that gave us a balance between location, value & quality and after our stay found the Explanada proved the ideal choice. The location is excellent, in the centre of Alicante, a few metres from the Paseo Explanada and a short walk from the marina, lift to Castell...

This hotel was perfect for our needs. We just wanted somewhere clean, cheap and with a good location. The hotel far exceeded our expectations - we were very pleased. The location is great.

A small cheap hotel with perfect location. 5 minutes walk to city centre, old town, the harbour and the nice sandy beach. We booked a junior suite which was perfect, but the balcony is very small.

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

“There are no rooms as this hotel is NOT on the EXPLANADA thus your view is another building. God what a dump this place was.”
