nearness to the beach
Free mini bar on 5th floor (royal). Staff on 5th floor very helpful and polite, especially when room change was necessary, due high winds. Not obvious that check in for royal floor is on 5th floor. Beware of staying on 5th (top) floor, during high winds, flag poles on roof make a terrible druming sound in rooms on harbour side. Parking is not included add about euros 18 per day.
very nice hotel, rooms very comfortable, clean, large, very good breakfast
We have been travelling all over the world in 1st class hotels, the Melia Alicante is one of the best.. The Spa and pool was very cold
The location was very good as it was near to the beach and a short walk to the city centre.The breakfast was excellent and included a good hot buffet as well as a continental style breakfast the actual hotel did not provide much information for guests.
Hotel location is perfect , you may choose to go in the beach or stay in the beautifull swimming pool with a great sightseen of alicante bay ....and in the night you may choose for hundreds of restaurant or disco in the port area or in downtown which is very close ....and safe area . fare at check out was 20 euros difference from booked .
Hotel was centrally located by downtown and castle. Hotel was great for family of 4
Great location, very well priced spa This hotel is in great need for renovation as things have started to rust n the rooms and the carpets are full of stains.
public parking adjacent. Helpful, bilingual staff. Located near historical sites. Room had a great view of the beach! Restaurant staff accomodated our request for smaller portions and sharing as we do not eat a lot at night as they do in Spain. None
the hotel was in a good location and the room was spacious, we had a sea view room with large balcony. there were some nice and not expensive eating places nearby. We had to wait to get into our room until 3pm, we were origanally promised it at 12.30pm.
excellent location, rooms very tidy and clean. staff was very friendly and helpfull.
Location.. Breakfast saloon was not ok.
The Hotel overall was nice. The breakfast was poor and not always fully supplied. I'd not like to be there when it was busy
Clean white sheets, good location. Not a lot of information for around the area. some complimentary bathroom products would of been nice especially as only traveling with hand luggage and being a four star hotel. also hairdryer in room not working, very important for ladies.
Very friendly staff, fast checkin and check out. good central location no
Good modern hotel with all the expected facilities. In the centre of Alicante but not near the beach (no problem for us). Close to the old quarter of the city which is worth a visit. Hotel staff a bit abrupt - sometimes verging on rude.
position and still having smoking rooms! spa and gym unavailable
comfort and brand new condition
Rooms very nice Corridor smelled stuffy
The location was wonderful, the hotel staff was very friendly and the room was great, especially considering the discount.
Smart reception. Nice staff A bog standard business hotel - very corporate and bland.
Good location, nice foyer. A pleasant place to stay for a night out in Alicante. Helpful staff (we asked for a late checkout and there was no problem and no charge), also the concierge was happy to store our bags after we checked out while we got some lunch downtown. I don't think this hotel would be classed as a 4* by Irish standards, perhaps a 3* rating? The room was small, but functional. Slight smell of damp, but we didn't spend much time in the room, so not a big issue.
Everything, especially the location, close to seafront, town centre, and rail, bus and metro stations. Nothing.
Nice stuff, nice hotel, good location! Everything was perfect!
Very clean, modern and spacious. Bathrooms excellent and breakfast very good English translation on hotel literature, menus, etc very poor and misleading. My daughter, who is now studying in Alicante university for 6 months, could offer several suggestions on how to improve the english translation. The rooms should have a small kettle and cups so that guests can make a cup of tea or coffee early in the morning when they get up or late in the evening before they go to bed
Location excellent for train station,shopping, dining, bars etc. Staff very helpful. Nice rooms, very little noise at night. We enjoyed our stay.
The hotel was excellent. I cannot believe it has only a 3 star rating as by the looks and the service it was a high 4 star rating for my taste. The staff were really helpful and polite. This is from the reception staff to the room service / cleaning staff. Everyone was friendly. The hotel was extremely clean. Modern look and feel. Great location, not too far away from the beach front. Just excellent The only thing I would suggest would be for the beds to be more fixed to the floor. The floors were lovely and shiny but slided a bit. So when there was movement in the bed, the bed moved too. Not a big problem, just a bit annoying.
Very nice hotel and very centrally placed. Great value for money. Felt like a 4 star hotel Twin beds issue wasn't made clear to us.
Modern Clean Hotel with Friendly staff
The staff at the hotel and the hotel in general was absolutely excellent. The breakfast and dinner are quite expensive and not particularly good for the price they charge.
The convenience to the sea and the pool and pool area. The restaurant and the restaurants unprofessional idiotic host.
Amazing hotel - love it. Egyptian cotton sheets and Korres products! Rooftop swimming pool - very relaxing and chilled out. Fantastic location Lunch on the terrace a bit pricy for what it is - but easy to get a sandwich to takeaway from outlets nearby.
quality of room
Breakfast The air conditioning system in room 313 did not work. In spite of being told repeatedly by staff that it had been repaired, it was not possible to cool room below 23'C
Just back from our stay at Hospes Amerigo.The location is perfect in the old part of town.The rooms are comfortable We really enjoyed our stay.The staff were excellent the tapas bar in the hotel was great,(the best beer in Alllicane) the staff here again were fantastic.We did not try the resteraunt but the menu looked good the tapas was excellent.overall we would definatly stay again.People complained about noise can only say we had no experience of this and people who complained should maybee not stay in a city hotel.,Again thanks to all the staff with a special mention to Sergio and Andrew. . nothing
This is an ideally located hotel, close to the beach, shops and restaurant. The room was cleaned to high degree everyday and the attached tapas bar served excellent food. The carpets in the hallways could have done with a clean.
Friendly staff slow bar service
very friendly and quiet hotel (quiet despite it being located just in the city centre); even though we had a room to the street and promenade we could sleep blissfully and undisturbed by any noise till noon; I think Amerigo is one of the best things that could ever happen to Alicante I think the size of the roof pool was precisely quoted, though we found it a bit on the small side- great for one couple, not so great if other hotel guests want to use it at the same time too
location and hotel level carpet not clean in the corridor and bathroom in the room not very clean
Modern hotel and very friendly staff As a five star hotel some details are missing, room maintenance isn't done effectively and quality of services is inconstant
very central and infriont to the beach nice view also the restaurant at the 25th floor ,very nice and good price, ithink this hotel need urgent restoration!!
Comfortable with excellent views and good location
Convenient position. Staff helpful Rooms- very small. In need of upgrading
The view straight onto the port and beach of alicante and castle..amazing! Also the view from the restaurant balcony. The rooms were modern and very clean. Great location, by the bars restaurants, and beach, and shops. Couldnt be a better location. Did not provide kettle and tea and coffee for room.. Only mini ar of which all was chargable! And the bar at restaurant wasnt open for tea and coffee in the morning, and the breakfast was 13 euros per person per day!!! So we had to go out. Also the beds are both single in a double room, which is annoying as they move apart, should cater for couples better.
location was excellent - if you want to be close to the beach, marina,shops,restaurants. air conditioners were the old type ....a bit noisy... but worked well.
The location as it was central the staff were very friendly, and as we went with friends the bar in the hotel was a good meeting place. although we had great time the noise from the road was noticeable plus when we stayed one of the lifts was scary as it stoped when we were in it.
The view from our room on the 21st floor gave excellent views of the coast, harbor and city. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The hotel restaurant on the 26 floor was disappointing. The only good point was the view. The food was poor and the waiters were grumpy. The room could do with improving. The air conditioners seemed to be at least 30 - 40 years old, and did not work very well. The room was noisy; this was because the rooms had stone covered contrete floors and every movement of a chair bed or door seemed to carry over several floors. Also the doors had warped over time and were impossible to open quietly. The reception staff were not always very helpful. e.g. For information about Alicante we were told to go to the tourist information office in the city
Central location Very noisy if staying in a room on the lower floor
A very convenient and central hotel for exploring Alicante. The hotel is rather old in furnishings, but is well maintained and is a 26 floor tower with only two small elevators which can prove to be a problem when busy.
Convenient locations with many shops/bars/restaurants and beach nearby. Walls were very thin so sound carried from adjoining rooms
very central location noise from other bathrooms
the location and value for money
Excellent central location and very friendly and helpful staff. Plenty of restaurants within the locality. Nothing
central position for beach marina and promenade no
Helpfulness of reception staff. The reception area is not particularly pleasant, which is a pity - all other aspects of the hotel are excellent.
Very friendly, helpful staff. Stunning view of castle from our room which was spotlessly clean and had a fridge / mini-bar. Quiet with no noise heard from other guests or traffic. Hotel in ideal location for beach, harbour and old town. Reasonably priced. Only a minor issue but would have liked facility to make tea or coffee. We were okay as we brought travel kettle and kept milk in the fridge / mini-bar provided.
The staff could not be any more friendly. They were all superb friendly & patient.I had a great time ther.
A central location within a couple of minutes walk of the beach, tram, bus, taxi, shops and restaurants The only problem was that we could hear a few late night revellers going past the hotel, which isn't the hotel's fault and is maybe the price we paid for having such a great location and view
Very favourable position in town. Free wireless internet connection in the rooms.
The location is excellent for everything, including the airport bus and the tram to towns to the east. Lots of nearby restaurants too. I had trouble sleeping one Saturday night because of many young people from the club Papparazzi gathering and making noise on the street. I understand you can't control this, but it affects my memory of my stay.
Excellent location Dark room, reading lights near bed also too dark
staff was helpful
City centre location The lack of parking in the area since the hotel's garage was full.
Close to the beach. Near airport busstop. Clean room. A very small balcony.It was´nt a nice view from it.
Excellent location! Good for traveling with baby, they have a kid's chair at breakfast room, but only stairs at the hotel entrance.
Good location. Nice big rooms with balcony.
THe staff were great.It was close to the beach and the shops. The room was noisy at night (traffic).
Inter- and intra-city buses and the train station are right there. Close to the water. Lots of places to eat. Ultra small room.
Didn´t see much of it. We were out in Alicante and only slept there. Location excellent for partying!
The fact that the hotel was very centrally located and close to the airport bus stop.
Very good location, next to bars, restaurants,and promenade.
English: It was neccesary to use the air conditioning in the room. I could choose between a smaller outside room and a room facing the yard.
Good value for money, good location. The second room I got was an ok size. I asked for a non-smoking room in my reservation and at chack-in but was given one that smelled strongly of smoke and had an ashtray. This was still classified as a non-smoking room. I got to move to a larger room that was non-smoking on the evening of the second day. Breakfast buffet was quite sparse.
the help we received from reception when we enquired about places we were wanting to visit. that we couldn't make a cup of tea or coffee in the room when we could have done with one.
The location is fantastic. No facilites to make a hot drink in room.
Perfect location, both near shopping and the beach. Nice breakfastbuffet Witherspoon excellent coffee and a selection of fresh fruit. Thin walls, flums also wish for better knowledge of English among some of the staff.
I liked everything. Handy, sober and clean, very confortable, much choice for breakfast including fresh foods, excellent quality/price value. Exactly what I look for in a hotel. There was nothing I did not like. Below you asked if I agree with the comments of other users. I do not agree with some of their comments. Lowering the mark because there is no tee or coffee in the room seems pathetic to me in comparison with the high overall standards.
Friendly,helpful staff. No bar for a pre-prandial drink.
Excellent value and a friendly hotel very close to the railway station.
Room contained tv, air conditionair, hair dryer, little fridge. We got fresh towels every day. Right over our door was a little white box - I guess it's for safety reasons - that shined during the night and enlighted the room.
Welcoming staff and good location for travelling
Convenient location and fresh decor There was a stale smell( possibly of drains ) in the room
The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were very clean and delicate. The Hotel is easy to find right next to the train station and the room was quiet. I left early and did not have time for breakfast. However the area where breakfast was served seemed nice. I enjoyed my stay.
It was close to the Railway Station No. All in all it was good and we will stay there again !!
Very much clean and organized
Average hotel in the middle of the city. Good rooms. Parking distant and difficult to find.
very warm welcome; clean and modern room; quiet air conditioning duct immediately above bed; condensation showing
I found the hotel staff to be extremely helpful and I was impressed by the cleanliness of the rooms.
while the room was adequate we were unable to open the window because it was too high bearing in mind my husband is 5'.10" and with his arm fully extended could not reach the window catch.
Staff were very friendly and location was excellent, very close to beach, esplanade, typical restaurants and city centre. Room was nice and clean as was rest of hotel. Ate in Iberian Restaurant 2 streets behind hotel which served lovely food at great prices. Bed was not very comfortable (hard mattress and was standard double so a bit small. Ok for 1 or 2 nights
Staff more helpful than would have expected, with excellent location other than Car Parking, also very close to Beach No Parking facilities, paid EUR 20 each night for Parking in nearby Underground facility
the very friendly staff, the location is excellent. we felt the buffet breakfast was over priced. and not catered for out taste. the coffee machine was broken although we were served tea/coffee these were cold.
Perfect position close to the old center and to the beach . The double bed in superior matrimonial room is small i think 1.50 meter .
We really liked Reme. a minibar was greatly missed. although the shower could be bigger, the price for a quarduple room was acceptable, and the beds comfortable. small comforts like glasses, minibar, extra pillows etc. was missed. a balcony would also be nice, but it was definitely worth the money.
Location, building, private, in general was fine. I am glad In the evening when I´ve asked to press my shirt or to get an iron - it was not possible
It was close to the shops and convenient for the airport No Parking and breakfast was a very small snack
The room was quite calm and it was very clean. Continental breakfast should be self service.
the hotel staff spoke English and helped in all matters. Clean room with balcony, in the heart of the city. Parking there.
room was clean what is advertised on the website is not correct. there was no airconditioning and it was very hot, when we opened the window we were bitten by mosiquitoes and it was noisy. internet is only available when the cafe next to the hotel is open and it closes early. staff surly and unhelpful. do not stay here
Good location Beakfast poor (coffee, orange juice and 1 cookie), the frame bed was squeaky so we had to remove it during the night and sleepin just on the matress on the floor.
Proximity to centre of city and bus connection to the airport. Good clean comfortable accommodation. Would have liked a hairdrier but no complaints. Lack of hairdrier
Central position, very good for communication both by foot, private and public trp. Poor choice of breakfast, very limited continental.
Central location Balcony never cleaned. Aircon switched off at 3am.
Room was clean Poor facilites, air-con only worked during the day, cafe was only open until 2pm, staff were unhelpful (telling us to book our own taxi to the airport).
There was no air conditioning and I could here the man next door snoring all night. Once tax was added, one night in a single bed (double room - but two single beds with table in between) cost 50 Euros. In my opinion not worth the money.
the stuff were helpful. it is right at the centre.
the location to city center but not noisey, and the hotel staff were very friendly. n/a
Good location and a rather good price. A rather basic hotel. Typical three star. You don't get anything extra, just the bed and a bathroom. Nothing is bad but nothing is better than average either. You get a reasonable good hotel with clean rooms at a low price. Personally I prefer 4 star and up. This was the only available hotel when our flight was cancelled and we had to stay another 3 nights.
Central location We'd just left a 3 star hotel which was brilliant, so this was a shock to see so many differences here. No air conditioning, no power points available (except for shaver in bathroom) to even recharge mobile phone, wall paper thin, beds uncomfortable with thick plastic covers, tiny tv that only worked sometimes, decor/furnishings dull, uninvited guests in our room (killed one in the bathroom), so we were promptly moved to another room. Some advice...3 star rated hotels in Spain can vary a great deal, so do your homework.
Located uptown, away from busy tourist aea.
Very very nice and warm staff, Hotel Leuka would be my next choice in the future.
its location no
The bathroom full size My money of 1,000 Euros was stolen by the hotel employee with her duplicate ley right from the safe deposit box in my room at the first 2 days of my stay. The manager Christina did not apologized, the reception staff made fun of this, the receptionist lied while interpreting to the policemen in my room. Obviously she stole the money herself. I had to write an official statement at the police station. Very humiliating experience. Never offered a insurance for the stolen money, shame. I moved out to the 2 star hotel nextdoors.
friendliness of staff lack of tea/coffee making facilities in bedroom
