“Excellent value hotel with good service”
Reviewed 18 October 2010

We stayed here last week as a one night layover on our way to Valencia, preferring a busy central hotel to a quiet resort one. It was easy to find (signed from the main airport road) and had secure parking which was essential for us (note that the car park is tight and requires a bit of negotiating with anything other than a small car).

The room and service (including room service dinner) were excellent, front desk staff were helpful and courteous even with my poor Spanish (which wasn't at all needed as they both spoke excellent English). Breakfast was pricey but very good quality and plentiful - the buffet being refreshed regularly. Overall the weekend rate of €120 for three inclusive of breakfast and parking was excellent value and I will look out for this chain again.

We were looking for a hotel that was walking distance from the beach, shopping area and the Old Town and its' restaurants. After much research, we chose the Abba Centrum and found it to be a great discovery.
Some of the reviews mentioned that its situation meant that you had to walk through some
slightly run down areas; we found that if you explore the area during the day,you could easily find alternative routes.
The hotel itself was everything they advertise and more......the staff were really helpful and friendly; the room was on the fourth floor,so although the view wasn't up to much,the room itself had everything we needed. The bathroom was very modern and boutique in style,the bedroom itself large and had plenty of storage space.It was worth paying extra for the "executive" room. The maids changed the bedding and cleaned every day.
Finally, the cafe con leche in the hotel bar/cafe was the best I had all holiday!

We chose this hotel based on the excellent reviews written by others on here, and were very impressed. The hotel room was very spacious and well equipped, with a minibar, keycode safe and internet included. Everything was in good working order and good condition, the hotel looked like it was fairly new.

Location wise, the hotel is reasonably close to the shops and marina (5-10min walk) and also the beach (10-15min). Everything was nice and quiet at night for a good night's sleep, and the curtains were great at keeping the room nice and dark. It sounds basic, but it does make a world of difference if you don't get woken up at dawn by sunlight coming through thin curtains!

The free internet is cable based rather than wireless and works very well, just remember to take a network cable.

The staff seemed helpful on the few occasions we spoke with them, but everything was so good there was very little, if any, need to call on them.

We paid €77.50 a night which seemed exceptional value all in. The breakfast is quite expensive, although we didn't try it so couldn't comment on whether it represented good value for money. This really shouldn't be seen as a downside as there is a supermarket accross the road which is great for making your own cheap breakfast and lunch too if you so desire. There's lots of lovely Spanish ham to choose from which is great with fresh bread. We used the mini-bar fridge to store a few things like ham, cheese, yoghurts and our own drinks.

The gym is pretty small, but perfectly adequate for a little working out while away, and it's surprising that it's included at all at this price. While we stayed, there was a treadmill, exercise bike, pull down machine, bars (pull ups and sit ups with feet locked in place?) plus a weights bench and a selection of fairly light dumbbells. If staying in Alicante during the summer, swimming in the sea is a much nicer way of exercising anyway, which I did every day (in spite of a thunderstorm on the last day!).

Check out the C6 airport bus which is good value at €2.60 (but can take longer than the advertised 30 mins) and takes you from the airport to near the hotel, or if arriving late as we did, a taxi is €20-25.

When we go back to Alicante one day, we will definately stay here again.

Location: At the city center. 20 - 25 mins by bus (C6) from airport to the hotel. Costs around 2.6 €. The last bus is at 2310 hrs, and since we arrived after that time we had to take taxi to the hotel and payed 20 €. There is a supermarket right outside the hotel. Bus station and Metro are just few minutes away.

Room: The room we got was spacious. Very comfortable bed. In addition to the sleeping room, there was living room which also had a sofa, minibar and a TV. AC was working fine.

You find all toiletries you need - from hair-drier to shaving blade (and ofc after shave lotion).

Staffs at reception are very helpful. And they speak english :) There is a well equipped gym as well.

Visiting Alicante? Book room at this hotel, i am sure you are not gonna regret this!

We just got back today from our Holiday, 2 adults and 2 kids age 11yrs and 9rs. On arrival greeted by friendly and helpful staff, who provided a continous supportive service throughout our stay. Rooms were fantastic all the space a family of 4 could ever wish for, considering we have boys! Acessibility to local shops and eating out facilities even arriving late was able to access local VIPS restaurant. 15mins walk to beach whilst taking in local sites so much to choose from. Although hotel may not have had evening entertainment we were coming in between 9pm - 10pm whilst visiting Santa Barba Castle, Museum, Cathedral...dont just take my word for it...book it. We're planning next years hols already, and we're pleased we did not go to Benidorm though some may differ!.Thanks again to all the staff at Abba Centrum Hotel who made our stay most enjoyable...

We stayed here for one night in May 2010 and it was brilliant!! Perfect in almost every way. We booked online and got a room for about 65 euros for the night, not including breakfast.

Yes, the location isn't the best as it's in a dodgy-ish feeling part of town and a fairly hefty walk away from the nicer parts of town, however this isn't something to complain about as we were well aware of it when booking. A taxi ride into town cost about 4 euros, so not bad at all. However, there is a supermarket directly opposite which was very handy.

The room was fantastic and HUGE! The bed was enormous and sooo comfortable (and was an actually king-size bed, as opposed to two single beds pushed together as is often found in European hotels). The bathroom was immaculate with a great shower and amenities. The Internet was quick and easy to use. There were plenty of channels in Spanish, English, French, Italian (I think?).

The hotel lobby was great, and the staff were friendly. They weren't the most helpful people ever, but still friendly.

We would definitely consider returning to this hotel if we ever stayed in Alicante again. The town itself was acutally quite pretty and we had a really delicious meal at Taberna del Gourmet. Having only eaten crappy touristy paella, we wanted to try as real a paella as possible so tried it here, where it seemed like we one of a only a few tables of tourists. The paella was actually really disappointing as it was SO over-salted that every other taste was over-powered, however everything else about the meal was great - chorizo, tapas, the wine, bread, olives, entrees etc. Definitely recommended! The staff were a mixture of super friendly and helpful and horribly snotty and rude - fairly typical!

In all, I would definitely recommend Abba Centrum.
