    Good

    Hotell looks good on the inside. Easy parking of rental car nearby.

    Not possible to heat the room, not nice surroundings. Having a car is important

    all staff were very friendly and helpful

    The kitchen staff should cover their hair - I found a long black hair in my sweet (I am blonde!!). This was very offputting. The first continental breakfast was croissant, choc.croissant, bread roll, ham/cheese, second was half a toasted baguette (cheese was given on request)?

    Its location is fantastic as it is right on the ocean and quiet and the views are superb. The city is close, you can go by bus or tram, or even on foot (we tried to walk and ride is very relaxing). The food is very good and the breakfast buffet I've had varied.The room is very nice and wide. The staff is friendly and helpful.

    I have stayed there six times in the past five years. The staff remembered me from my previous trips - the last of which was a year ago.

    Superb

    Staff are very nice and polite and the breakfast is very good. Its a bit far from the city centre though, however there is a tram nearby. Also the supposed direct access beach didnt really match our expectations, however we were able to visit other beaches using the tram service

    Beach is a bit far

    The personnel in the hotel made an extra effort to make me welcome and comfortable. We had a cold spell and without me asking they installed a heater in my room. When I arrived at the hotel I was immediately given information about Alicante. They transmitted their information with a lot of enthusiasm. Last time I was in Alicante in a hotel of that category I was treated just as a passing customer. In hotel Albahia it was different and they gave me sufficient attention without it being bothering or excessive. The breakfast was very nice and relaxing with its bay windows giving out to the sea. This hotel can suite a wide variety of clients and not just business people. Despite the cold weather there was a very warm atmosphere inside the hotel.

    Good sized room with terrace, only 7 minutes from Tram stop, which delivers you to the centre of Alicante. Free parking on the street outside the hotel. Very friendly and helpful reception staff.

    From the outside the hotel is very ugly, but don't let this put you off, the interior has been modernised and is comforable.

    Pool was open only a few hours each day, which didn't matter so much as it had a layer of junk floating on top of it. no fridge. the pictures are also miss leading on Booked.net, ive stayed in some nicer 1 and 2 star hotels

    Exceptional

    The hotel is perfect for sporty / active families. There are 9 tennis courts outside the hotel and the hotel arranged an excellent tennis coach for us. There are several beaches and the sea is wonderfull for swimming. The tram brought us easely to the centre of Alicante with shopping centres. Additionally, it is very nice to take a walk in the neighbourhood.

    Very good

    Convenient for a short stay in Alicante. Nice room. Good breakfast.

    Rather run-down feeling on the exterior. OK to stay for one night en route to somewhere else but I wouldn't have wanted to stay for a week.

  • 6.6
    Good

    Comfortable room and beds, very clean, pleasant staff

    Lack of fridge or even a mini-bar to keep water etc cool. A basic amenity for this calbre of hotel. Also, paying 1 Euro every time you open the safe is a rip-off. Ditch it now!!
