Eurostars Lucentum
Ranked #6 of 50 Hotels in Alicante
Reviewed 4 August 2012

We were transferred here at 1am, as we should have stayed at Eurostars Mediterranean Plaza (nearer the beach and the old town) but their air conditioning had broken, so they offered us to stay there with no air conditioning (it was 31 degrees at night!) or we could transfer to the Eurostars Lucentum - this is a 15 minute walk away from the old town, and the beach, towards the lovely central market (in fact it is opposite the central market) but on a main road.

The receptionist was very friendly, and happily told is about a cheap place for breakfast around the corner, but offered us the hotel breakfast deal anyway. He was efficient, kind, and friendlt - no complaints at all - not sure about previous complaints about reception reported here - they were all without question nice and frindly and helpful.

The room was nice (room 411) the huge bed was very comfy, although the pillows were odd - they had sort of lumpy foam balls in them - but they were still nice and led to a good nights sleep. The air conditioning worked well - which we needed, but the bathroom wasn't air conditioned, and all the complaints that you find on trip advisor were all true, there was an empty gel container on the wall in the shower - but there were standard hotel toiletries provided, there was a bar of soap and no dish, and yes the toilet paper wasn't top quality - but honestly - who cares!

For me, the only thing that would dissuade me from staying there again was the road noise. It is really loud, and we both work up at 7.30am when the rush hour starts. However, there is a pharmacy around the corner where you can buy earplugs.

Would I stay again - maybe? If i couldn't get into the other Eurostars Med plaza. The noise from the road is the only complaint I would make. If you are not noise sensitive I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: north-facing rooms have a lovely view over the market, they are the coolest but they are on the main...

On arriving at the hotel the checkin was swift and polite. The lobby is modern and well air conditioned however i felt lacked atmosphere.
The rooms are large and the beds are incredibly comfortable. The air con was excellent and even on the hottest summer day the rooms were cool.
There was ample space to hang clothes.
The bathroom was well equipped also.
HOWEVER: Here is what this hotel needs to improve on for it to be excellent:
1 we stayed on the 9th floor and the WIFI was poor to non existent and for a 4 star hotel this needs to be working well.It is a major turnoff for guests nowadays if the connection is poor.
2 The bathroom had hair and shower containers on the wall but they were empty and this could be improved on.
3 The toilet paper was scarce and of very poor quality and this shoukd be improved for a good hotel.
4 The complementary toietries on the sink get wet where they are placed and the soap in this modern bathroom destroys the sink top as there is no holder.
5 The TV took up alot of space on the cupboard...a modern flatscrren would do justice to the modern room.
If the above could be improved in this hotel it would be fantastic.
This hotel is not beside the beach and is a good 10-15 minute walk. It is beside the TRAM and is well located for shopping.
Overall very good and very clean.

Room Tip: Along a busy road so maybe choose the back.

We stayed in this hotel on our way to our holiday home. Reception was oké. Rooms were nice and breakfast was good. Location is perfect for discovering Alicante. Nice walks, shops and good restaurants in the neighbourhood.

This hotel is well positioned , directly opposite the market and a couple of blocks from the waterfront. It is within easy access of the bus station and railway station as well. The building and the reception look extremely elegant as you would expect a four star hotel to be but then...

Rooms are old and in need of rennovation, the shower floods the floor and the beds are lumpy. The halls are dark and gloomy and the service was very slow when requests were made for iron and towels which had been forgotten in our room.

We did not eat here as many restaurants nearby so unable to comment on this.

Wifi was excellent from the room and was free as stated.

Reception were slightly helpful when pushed but preferred to follow their own conversations before helping a paying guest.

Stayed here at the start of our holiday when we flew into Alicante. It is a great central location directly opposite the fabulous market and within walking distance of shops. restaurants and the sea front/promenade/beach/marina and the Santa Barbara Castle. The hotel is very comfortable and the rooms were spotlessly clean with great bathrooms, we had two rooms and one was slightly bigger than the other and the aircon worked a treat which was just as well as it was 30C. The hotel also has a great value and extensive buffet breakfast which when you pre-book at reception is EUR8, otherwise its 10. Only slight downsides were that that check-in/out was slow with just one receptionist and the lifts appear to be really slow and hard to work out, but saying that I wouldn´t hestitate in returning there again. I would also book it direct on the Eurostars hotels own website rather than through an online agent as it appears to be better value to do this!

Room Tip: Get a room on one of the higher floors if possible for a better view, but in saying that it is very...

Couldn't ask for anything more from the hotel. The service was impeccable, perfect location and the hotel itself was exactly to my taste, contemporary, modernised and very slick.

The location allowed us to walk to almost every given location, the marina, the castle but bang on next to the centre.

Beautiful coffee houses, nice beach and gorgeous restaurants and patisseries to choose from. We also managed to find a sheesha garden....WOW!!

Alicante was a last minute holiday and was very hesitant to go there but it completely changed my perception when I got there. Would definitely go again and absolutely stay at this hotel too.

I have recently returned from Alicante with the girls, we searched for hotels and stayed here as it had great reviews and the price was reasonable for us. We couldn't have faulted it at all, especially the location as it was close to the castle area, the beach and the shops!! the rooms are very clean and modern, air con, tv, comfy beds, quiet, just great for a few nights city break. We would return again to this hotel.
staff were friendly but we not all of them understood english very well- thats the only weak point but we got by!!!
