“Nice hotel shame about the traffic noise”
Reviewed 10 March 2014 via mobile

Stayed for 3 nights, hotel was fine except for the noise of the traffic at night. We were on 5th floor in room 501 facing a side street & even with the double glazed balcony door shut we could still here it.

Other than this the hotel was very good. Breakfast was excellent.

Would rate the hotel as 3* not 4* though.

The hotel is in an excellent location in Alicante town centre. It is only a few steps away from shops, restaurants, the beach, the port and the Explanada de Espana. It is also less than 3 minutes from the airport bus stop in Puerta del Mar (2.90 euros each way every 20 minutes). Our room on floor 3 overlooked the square with its water fountains and was clean and comfortable with ensuite, TV and balcony but no kettle etc.
Breakfast was not included but could be purchased for 8.50 euros. However there are at least a dozen cafes nearby including the Cafe del Faz ( churreria recommended) and the cafe on the corner of the square so this is not a problem. The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke good English. We would give it better than average but there was noise from other rooms and stairs on two nights and there is no lounge/bar. However great value for money in a great location where you can do Alicante entirely on foot.

Room Tip: avoid rooms near lift/stairs if possible

We only stayed one night here, but we really enjoyed it. It's in a beautiful location- the view out of our window was of the Square and Town Hall. Thankfully the town clock didn't chime all through the night!
The hotel is close to the Marina and all the bars and restaurant of that area. a short walk to any type of food you'd want.
The bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean, the service was very good.
A little TLC is needed (holes in the curtains) but that didn't take anything away from the stay.
Our main problem was with the parking- we were send to park in the location where the hotel has an agreement for cheaper prices, but we missed the turn and ended in the wrong place, where we had to pay quite a large amount for overnight parking. That was our fault, I know, but parking is our only negative for this hotel.

Room Tip: Parking is a problem

We stayed here for 2 nights as a stop over before starting a walking week in the Jalon valley.
We wished to stay in the old quarter of Alicante. We were able to explore the old town on foot and also we walked from the hotel up to the Castillo Santa Barbara with views all across Alicante.
The hotle provided a good continental breakfast with fresh fruit/breads and pastries.
We travelled from the airport by shuttle bus which stopped at the marina which wasa short walk from the hotel.
Our room on the top floor was quiet with views across the square to the Castillo Santa Barbara on the rocky outcrop above.

Just back from a 3 night stay in the Eurostars Mediterrranea Plaza Alicante. Lovely central hotel. Staff were exceptionally helpful and pleasant especially Monica who checked us in. She is so helpful and friedly and really couldn't do enough for us. Monica and the rest of the staff is what makes this hotel so special. We had a huge room, 509 overlooking the square and the castle. We were there on a Saturday night and didn't experience any noise. We had a little balcony, no table or chairs but very nice. There is no bar at this hotel. On the 7th floor there is a gym, sauna and jazzusi which was great and a nice terrace if you wanted to sit out. I am sure in Summer time is would be amazing. Many bars and restaurants around and very reasonably priced. There was a safe and a mini bar which was fully stocked. A small beer was priced at €2,75, perhaps a little pricy. Alicante is a lovely city beside the sea and we will definitely visit very soon again. People are wonderfully friendly. We will certainly stay at this hotel again anytime we go to Alicante, wouldn't stay anywhere else! Had a great time. Anne Farrell, Dublin, Ireland.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are probably better

You couldn't get a better location, with the seafront at 3-4 minutes' walk, a great choice of restaurants, cafes, and tapas bars within 3-4 minutes, and the entrance to the castle 10 mins.

We had no problems with noise, whether from the square or from other guests, the only slight niggle was a constant hum from overhead in our room, presumably a heating or air-con unit somewhere above us, which was quite annoying at night. Other than that, our room was very comfortable, loads of space, and a huge terrace with chairs & sunloungers, overlooking the square, the town hall, and the castle. The view was stunning!

Breakfast was a good buffet, no surprises but plenty of choice including some nice fresh fruit. Staff were friendly & helpful.

We were there in January, I'm sure the whole place is totally different in the summer, but for a winter city break I'd highly recommend Alicante and this hotel.

Room Tip: It's worth paying extra for one of the rooms higher up, with terrace/balcony overlooking the squ...

This hotel is in a fantastic location. Our room was fine for the price. Staff helpful and overall seemed like a really good bargain. However I can not ignore the fact that for three hours, between 2 am and 5 am on our last night, the noise of other guests was intolerable. Shouting, singing, drunk, slamming doors. As it went on for 3 hours, I can onoly draw the conclusion that no member of staff dealt with the issue. The following morning, we received profuse apologies from the staff who were well aware presumably from complaints by other guests that there had been a massive problem, so I have to ask why did it go on so long?
In addition to that, the room was far too warm: this was January and we could not regulate the temperature, so it must be unbearable in August. I am really sorry to say I wouldn't go back because of this. It could be a fantastic hotel.
