This is the second time we have stayed at Hostal Alemana, and I would stay there again. It was quite a few years between visits and the soft furnishings in the rooms have been updated since then.
This little hotel offers little extras that I would not expect from a 2 star hotel - 24 hour reception where the staff are always happy to help & offer advice, bathroom products, bath & shower, mini-bar, large rooms with in-room safe, large wardrobe, slippers and a balcony.
We opted for the breakfast because we were huge fans of the fresh orange juice after our last visit. Breakfast is a small buffet with cereal, yoghurt, bread, pastries, cheese, cold meat. The juice and tea/coffee is made fresh and brought to your table.
Just one block away is the beach and it's a lovely walk along the promenade into the old town to sample all the great tapas.
There is bar next door to the hotel and nightclub across the road which can be a plus or a minus depending on what you are looking for in a holiday. If your room fronts the street, expect to hear some noise in the early hours from Thu to Sat but it wasn't excessive.
There is pay and display parking in the surrounding streets which is approx. €9/day. The hotel does have a carpark facility nearby if you can't find a space or don't have loads of change to feed the machine.
I would definitely return to this hotel again as I love that it's simple, well-priced and well located.
