“Nice hotel in the wrong locations”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

Just returned from the Albahia hotel, we went for a 4 day mini break. We cannot fault the hotel, the staff or the food. One particular member of staff who helped us was Monica on the reception desk. She arranged for us to keep our room until 6.00pm at no extra cost. That is customer service for you!! The location of the hotel is in a terrible position it's seems like it's built in the middle of a mountain and to get to main road is some trek. Once you get to the top after 6 flights of steps there is a great connection of public transport into the city. There are some bars within a 10 minute walk but we did not think much of these, they are much better in the city. Overall I would recommend the Hotel Melia instead.

Room Tip: Book a sea view to avoid the tram noise thats keeps you awake.

This is a nice hotel and very reasonable. Stayed here for just the one night as it was close to a conference I was attending the next day. It is a liitle out of town and appears to be in a residential block. Had a a very cute room, plenty of space - a separate living area and a balcony. Lovely sea views. We had booked a double room which unfortunately was twin beds pushed together - something I loathe. Had a drink in the very nice bar. Free wifi. Lots of tv channels (but no English ones - not that that bothered us).

I had a good nights sleep. My husband not so much as he was kept awake by noise from the aprtments above (not the hotels fault I know).

Lovely buffet breakfast.

All in all a very nice little hotel and very good value.

Stayed February 2013, travelled on business

Stayed here for 5 nights in February,loved the hotel,loved the staff-didnt get any of their names which was a shame but all were excellent
Room was very nice and spacious with a balcony and a sea view,weather was great so nice for sunbathing on the balcony and watching the world go by
Tram stop is 5 minutes away walking and its so easy to use and so efficient to go into Alicante city
Would i stay here again? Absolutely!

Room Tip: Request a sea view with balcony,its a bit extra but worth it !

Simple hotel with strange ways. When we arrived we were told our room number, but when we went to the room it was not yet cleaned from the previous guests this was 1pm, a wait of twenty mins before room was ready! These things can happen, but a pity no less. parking is in public car park, can and is short of free space . Hotel is not suited to disabled. Breakfast fair , and staff kept choice stocked as it was very busy. All in all ok 6.5/10
Just outside Alicante , hotel is part of large apartment block, parking at rear of hotel. Use gps to find, value good. Gym, tennis sea views , rooms fair.

Room Tip: Second floor sea view. Away from lift.

Great hotel staff very helpful and food good. We reserved halfboard as much as you can eat at the breakfast and then a choice of 3 starters and 3 main courses for the evening meal, mainly Spanish home food which is better than half English half Spanish. We had a waiter Jose which made the evening meal a showcase,ever seen Faulty towers with Manuel well that's what you have he was great, THANK YOU JOSE. Will reserve again when we're in Alicante, 5 mins to the center very quiet. It was half holiday and Spanish studies for me.

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view

Nice hotel next to the beach and tennis courts. Strange set up, it seems you pay for everything you get individually at reception, so when you arrive, you pay, after dinner, you pay, when you book breakfast, you pay, when you check out you get a receipt for everything. Surely it must cost them more to take multiple credit card transactions? Anyway, it was a nice hotel, very clean, comfortable bed.

Room Tip: Road side can be a bit noisy, try fora beach side room.

Dear Mr,
All the staff are very happy that you decided to spend your holiday in Alicante and exactly in hotel Albahia Tennis and Business.
I would like to tell you that you can choose between pay directly or charge to your account of your room to finally pay when you make the check out. Maybe it was a confusion.
Just I would like to wish you a very happy Christmas and the best for New year.

Lola Llorca.

Albahia Hotel is located outside the main town of Alicante. The rooms were very clean and very comfortable - ours had a small balcony - and overlooked the sea. Exceptional value for money. We did not enjoy the food - and the restaurant staff were not particularly friendly. Outside the hotel is not great but our room was quiet. Heaps of tennis courts and a pool. Watch out - as the pool is only open mornings out of the main holiday season.
