Hotel Albahia
Ranked #16 of 50 Hotels in Alicante
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

Quite basic rooms/ food availability but reasonably priced for a short break. Rooms cleaned daily, flat screen tv with a few English channels and close to beach. 10 min taxi ride to port or 15min walk to tram line. Pool only open June-sept which was a little disappointing. Hotel quite noisy so take ear plugs if you want a lie in/ early night. Alicante isn't very touristy either so hard to change money or go to bars etc. All hotel staff nice and helpful especially receptionist Alberto - very nice man.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled with friends

Close to the beach, ten minutes , close to bus stop five minutes and then five minutes to Alicante, close to tramseven minutes and then Calpe,Denis,Altea and Benidorm become close too!
The hotel was excellent value but from the moment we booked you had a good feeling, emails were answered promptly by Christina, after an early morning departure from home we arrived at hotel Albahia courtesy of the c6 bus from the airport to Puerto del mar 3.85 euro and then two stops on the 21 or 22 ,1.45 euro alighted at villajoysa 10 and five minutes later arrived at reception of the hotel (3 floors of the building).
Excellent service commenced from the moment we arrived,well before the stated booking in time, xxx, gave us so much helpful advice and our sea view room was already for us, in Alicante hotel room before midday, would not expect this next time (hope to return with the girls) but an encouraging start. Room was good, lovely sitting area, balcony and bathroom, bed is large and comfortable .
Pity the hotel swimming pool did not open earlier than June and we had packed Susan's gymwear.
At night after one less than favourable meal nearby we ate in the restaurant, romantic measls at 19.50 incl wine five course and glass of cava were excellent value, the daily menu at 12,50 also offered a good three course option. Hectic on 1 may, small restaurant when all wish to eat. A good start was a beer at the scvuba bar, its a little much at the hotel and having Heineken on draught why no it estrella, San Miguel, Alhambra or other Spanish beer.
Tip second floor room might reduce noise from garages that woke Susan.

We leave shortly and it is with Sadness, they say a business is as strong as its staff, this one is very strong, thank you to all but especially Ana and Xxxxx sorry I am getting old, was it Henri he has been off for the last few days so it is expected that I will forget.

Room Tip: Second floor sea view

Connectivity to the Tram to Benidorm is 2 mins walk from the hotel. Rooms were one of the cleanest and overall view from the room is good. Generally found the hotel staff to be very helpful, Only complain is about the exterior look of the hotel.

We arrived at the hotel and it is not in a good area. It was in a small street and there was nothing around. The superior room is new except for the doors and window. There is a lot of noice from outside, because there is a street and parking between the hotel and the sea. There is no beach and nothing to see. The bed was hard, the bathroom is good, the terras and size of the room is also good. The breakfast was good and the staff is very friendly.
This hotel is good when you have or rent a car and for a few nights...

Room Tip: Ask for a superior room, it 's just 9 € more for 1 night

We had 4 enjoyable nights here at the beginning of March. This hotel is just a little outside the main town - tram available close by. Looks a bit odd because it is situated within a block of apartment, but once inside it is very bright, clean and our room was a really good size. We opted for sea view - worth it because of slight noise from trams passing at the rear of hotel. The staff couldn't do enough for you and breakfast was good. They will supply tea/coffee making if requested in your room. Mattresses a bit hard - arrange for a topper or extra duvet to pop underneath bottom sheet if you have a bad back, like myself. If I was to stay in Alicante for longer I might have opted for a hotel nearer the centre, but if you have car hire there is parking at this hotel. There was quite a lot of noise from chairs being scraped along the floors above (I think in the restaurant) which woke us early in the morning when breakfast started, but it got us up so we made the most of each day to the full. If you want a long lie ..... well, take ear-plugs! Didn't use fitness room, but looked ok, or the pool which seemed a long way along from the hotel.

Room Tip: Sea View to avoid tram noise and not under the restaurant if you want a quiet morning lie in. Try f...

We stopped here for just 4 nights from the 1st March and yes as from other reviews the outside does not look great, but inside it is very nice. Prior to arriving I had emailed the hotel to ask a few questions and a couple of requests, such as tea and coffee making facilities and iron and ironing board which were replied to very quickly by Cristina. When we arrived everything we had requested was in our room. It was a nice hotel, modern and clean, great bar and helpful and friendly staff. We ate at bar/café and food was good and price was very good but we never ate in the restaurant, only for breakfast which was not too bad, best to go early ish as they do run out of certain things.

I would have to say if it was a proper holiday of at least a week I would have picked something a bit nicer, but it was great for 4 nights. We had a sea view which is best because you can still hear trams slightly so must be loud the other side of hotel, we had a nice little balcony and room was a nice size. You did hear a lot of trolleys being rolled on floor above in the morning but never bothered me too much. It is a bit out of Alicante so if you want to be in the town around all the bars etc. this may not be for you. There is a little supermarket around the corner and a restaurant and it is only a few mins on the tram to Alicante, we walked back one day just strolling and it took about 20 to 30 minutes.

Room Tip: upgrade to a seaview as noise from trams will be pretty loud on other side of hotel
