Do business at the stylish Holiday Inn Elche hotel in the heart of the industrial zone between Elche and Alicante. The lofty atrium and tropical garden planted with palms will inspire you as you step into the Lobby of the fresh Holiday Inn Elche hotel. You'll find us in the hub of the vibrant Elche Parque Industrial, between the ancient Moorish city of Elche and Alicante's Costa Blanca beaches. After visiting local factories, you can report back to the office with complimentary high-speed Internet from your cosy Guest room. Major companies like the Tempe shoe manufacturers are within a 2km radius of this hotel in Elche Parque Industrial. Your conferences at Alicante Exhibition Centre (IFA) and flights from Alicante Airport are a 6km-drive on the convenient, nearby A7 highway. It's 12km from Holiday Inn Elche to the port city of Alicante's swath of white, sandy beaches. Drive 9km to the walled city of Elche for the vast Palmeral of Elche date palm plantation, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your colleagues can try team building days on the fairway at El Plantio Golf Club, 8km away. Spanish favourites such as omelette and sausages are part of the fresh breakfast buffet in bright, Mediterranean-themed Restaurant Onix. Night owls snack on sandwiches and ice cream from our 24-hour Room Service menu. Work up an appetite in the soothing Finnish sauna and the gym in our hotel.
The staff were very helpful, especially the front reception when we checked in. It was beneficial to have staff that spoke English as well. The food in the restaurant was quite good too.
I think that the advertising for the hotel is a bit misleading in letting visitors know how close it is to the airport. In taking a taxi both to and from the airport to the hotel, it was not 3km away, but more than that. It may have influenced our decision to stay there if we had known that it was farther and that the cab was going to be that much more money. Additionally, the connectivity of the internet was poor and should be enhanced. We found the signal to be inconsistent regardless of whether we were connecting wirelessly or via ethernet cord.
Food was great, service was great but location was not easy to find
It was comfortable - unfortunately it was not that close to the airport. It needs a swimming pool.
the room and reception staff were very good - parking options good
location for a tourist was not great it is in an industrial estate and was not easy to find the signs were not very clear
The only thing that we liked was the convience for the airport.
Yes there was, and I will be writing to complain. For your information we were treated very badly in the restaurant.
We made our booking on the the same day as our arrival + we had a very very late arrival (3 am). Potentially these 2 factors may cause a lot of trouble in hotels (non-existing booking, no-show booking etc.) but at this hotel it was no problem at all and everyting went very smoothly! Nice hotel, very new and comfortable. In the middle of an 'industrial park' but very close to the airport.
The night manager set our wakeup call 30 minutes too late; ouch!
Accessiblity tothe airport
It was too lonely/quiet
Parking was good also garage facility
Room smelt of cigaret smoke!
the view, the hotel is in a industrial park
friendliness of staff
