AC Hotel La Linea
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We stayed 5 nights at this hotel and used it as base for Gibraltar (2 days), Morocco (1 day) and Ronda (1 day). Its not perfect but its fine. As Marriott Golds you get wifi, breakfast and pkg (which I suspect holds true for any marriott member). We were not upgraded but from the balcony had harbour and Gibraltar views from the 3rd floor. The breakfast was nothing to write home about but fine for a throw in Served until 10:30 daily. They turned us away at 10:32 once which we were really not shaken up about. No in room safes, but they do have mini fridges. AC works but not as well as you would like. Parkade is convenient but challenging to navigate entry and spotwise. Main part of the town is walkable, as is the Carefour / McDonalds shopping mall. The economy here is not in good shape and it shows in the litter and area appearance. We came home late by foot and never felt unsafe. In a nutshell it works.

This is a nice hotel, not to far from the border to gibraltar. Hotels are expensive in Gibraltar so if you want to save on the accommodation then this a great alternative. A taxi from the hotel to the border will cost in the region 4 euros and you can take a bus or taxi when you have crossed over.
The rooms are nice, it is quiet. the restaurant has good food and the breakfast was nice. the staff were helpful and I don t think there is much anyone could complain about.

I stayed in this hotel for 6 days for business in Gibraltar. The room was very good and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very good breakfast, descent but overpriced, in my opinion, dinner. The position of the hotel is quite good, near the beach and it requires at least 15 to 20 minutes walk to go to the center.

AC La Linea is far from luxury, and it is not vacation hotel
but it is far enough for weekend stay.

I have stayed few times already in this hotel for over night. Each time I was fully satisfied. Rooms are rather modes in size, but well equipped with modern look, clean and well maintained. Pool at inner patio small and surrounded by near-by buildings but it is still OK if you want to have wake-up swimming in the late mooring.
Reception staff is grate. There is no problem if someone is "English only".
You can fully relay on buffet breakfast. As for the other meals – well you are in Spain - there are many places around. Well, need to walk a little.
Location is the main value - everything one needs is within walking distance.
1 min to main Sea Front promenade. 3 min to Algeciras Bay Beach
10-15 min to La Linea central part with bars, restaurants etc.
There is max 20 min walk to Gibraltar border.
Well, I do agree - immediate neighborhood is not great but I never has bad feeling about walking around.
The best way to Gibraltar is to use Sea Front Promenade. Monkey's Rock is the best guide. On the way back AC mark is clear visible form seaside.
I do not recommend Algeciras Bay beach - Mediterranean side offers far better sand, water and services (must try sea food restaurants). If you do not fancy almost 1 hr walking than take taxi or public bus.

I'm a first time Mum and this was my 7 month olds first time abroad, made a lot easier by the friendly and welcoming staff.
Although they couldn't provide me with a kettle they did not fuss about making up 8 bottles twice a day! Shame there was no cot, but baby slept in the lovely large room in her pram.
Breakfast was AMAZING!
Very close to the town centre and some great beach restaurants!
