“Senza infamia e senza lode”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Ho pernottato in questa struttura come base di partenza per visitare Gibilterra, anche se non è proprio vicina al confine (con un 20 minuti a piedi si raggiunge comunque facilmente, mentre in dieci minuti si raggiunge la zona centrale della Linea). La semplicità la fa da padrona: l'hotel, all'esterno come all'interno, è semplice e funzionale. Anche la camera ed il bagno, puliti e minimalisti, seguono la stessa linea. Il letto è comodo e l'ambiente silenzioso. Il personale sbrigativo, ma cortese ed efficiente. Non ho usufruito della colazione. Peccato per la zona abbastanza degradata (un po' come tutta la cittadina come mia impressione), ma a mio avviso decisamente non pericolosa (sono rientrato in hotel a piedi dal centro in piena notte senza alcun problema). Prezzo: (escluso garage a € 9) Euro 55. Tutto sommato buon rapporto qualità/prezzo. Consigliato per struttura e posizione.

I stayed in this hotel as a base to visit Gibraltar, although it's not really close to the border (but with a 20-minutes walk, you can reach it easily, and in ten minutes you can reach the central area of ​​the La Linea). The simplicity is the main protagonist: the hotel, outside and inside, is simple and functional. Also the room and bathroom, clean and minimalist, followthe same line. The bed is comfortable and the environment quite.The staff hasty, but polite and efficient. I didn't take advantage of the breakfast. Shame for the area quite degraded (a bit like the whole town as my impression), but in my opinion definitely not Dangerous (I came back from city center in the night withouth any problem). Price: (excl. garage at € 9) Euro 55. All in all a good quality / price ratio. Recommended for structure and location.

Room Tip: Consiglio le stanze ai piani più alti in quanto molto tranquille e, se si è in auto, di utilizzare i...

Expected better service and facility considering it is part of Marriott chain. Ask for room facing the bay, back rooms are terrible view. Rooms are modern, clean and very nice. Gym facility is a joke, one stationery bike and a weight bench. Pool appears permanently closed, water is brown and there is a barricade across entrance. There is a var area but never appears to be open. Breakfast buffet is fine and not bad price when added to room price when booking.
Major advantage is the hotel location, only 15 minute walk to Gibraltar border avoiding car traffic lines that can take 3 hours or more to cross border. Around hotel there is very little, local gym, one or two restaurants, best bet is to cross over to Gibraltar.

Room Tip: Front of hotel with balcony

I stayed in this hotel for two nights, these are my findings.

POSITIVE:
* fast check inn and friendly staff (they speak English although some of them not very well)
* nice room with balcony
* elevator
* free coffee and some soft drinks in the lounge
* very good breakfast (lots of choice)

NEGATIVE:
* free WIFI only in public areas
* my balcony was very dirty (hasn't been cleaned for ages)
* pool was not open (early October) and the area was dirty
* nothing to do in the vicinity of the hotel (no restaurants, bars, ...)

Room Tip: Try to get the room with Gibraltar's rock view.

Even though I arrived 3½ hours before check-in I was given a room straight away. The staff were extremely helpful throughout my week-long stay; those on reception spoke excellent English, and helped me a lot in the resurrection of my extremely rusty Spanish!
My room was large, with a view across Algeciras harbour and a glimpse of The Rock. Unfortunately there are no tea/coffee-making facilities in the rooms though during the day; after breakfast to before dinner; there is a coffee-making machine in the lounge, the use of which is free.
There is a pool but it was closed in early October even though the weather was still very hot.
The border with Gibraltar is only about a mile away, and an easy walk - the land around is flat - so guests may visit easily; don't forget your passport! And bars, cafés, and restaurants abound in La Línea itself.
One word of caution: many of the residents don't know where Calle Caireles is, so if asking for directions, ask for Calle Santa Marta; once you are there you will be able to see the hotel.

Room Tip: Try for the top floor - the floors are tiled, and if someone stays above you you may be disturbed by...

Loved everything about this hotel, very reasonable price just a street away from the beach which was nice and quiet. Rooms very nice and modern, lovely buffet breakfast each morning. Pool was nice and not busy and the staff were so lovely and helpful, cant praise them highly enough especially Sondra at the front desk. It was just a short walk to some beautiful town squares where you can find banks, shops and nice places to eat.

We stayed at AC hotel when I visited Gibraltar. It is the best hotel that I found, in relation to the price and conditions. The room cost under 50 euros and the conditions are of a rooms at least 100 euro. It is spacious, clean, with a balcony overlooking the harbor and Gibraltar. The staff are friendly. The hotel is a bit far from Gibraltar border point, so do not walk. The taxi costs about 4 euro.
In conclusion, I highly recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking Gibraltar. The view is breathtaking.
