Hotels in the centre of Alicante have similar disadvantages to hotels in other cities – a lot of noise from the street from the many tourists and bars. Another problem is the lack of comfortable high-class hotels, which is compensated by the availability of a sufficient number of comfortable apart-hotels and apartments for rent.

Reina Victoria Prado Sastre
Hotel advantages: One kilometre from the Bulevar Plaza shopping centre and the Museum of Modern Art is the small but cosy Reina Victoria Prado Sastre. The Postiguet beach is a five-minute walk away, free Wi-Fi and comfortable rooms are its main advantages.
Negative reviews: Complaints about poor contact with the staff – the reception is only in one of the buildings, in the other is absent. Not always done a quality room cleaning after the previous guests, sometimes not enough of the necessary sources such as outlets.
Hotel BH San Francisco
The pros: Among the main advantages of the BH San Francisco is its convenient location in the central part of Alicante, close to Postiguet Beach and many other famous city attractions. There is parking and all the necessary facilities for customers with disabilities, a large terrace, a good continental breakfast, or a buffet.
The minuses: There is very noisy through the night bar nearby, working until 6 am, poor soundproofing between the rooms. The terrace mentioned in the description, although large, is uncomfortable because it faces the wall and has only a few chairs and tables.
Alicante Center Apart
The pros: Alicante Center Apart is a modern apartment hotel in the centre of Alicante, located near the Central Market and Postiguet Beach (about 700 meters). There is parking and good living conditions. There is a decent restaurant at the bottom of the building and a full kitchen in the apartment, where you can provide full meals on your own. No mandatory prepayment, it is possible to cancel the prepayment without financial loss.
The minuses: On the street, where this hotel is located a lot of night pubs, it leads to a lot of noise, does not give the opportunity to sleep. Also, people complain about minor domestic problems, pointing to the need for cosmetic repairs and replacement of some small appliances in the rooms.
The pros: In the historic quarter of Alicante, 300 meters from Postiguet Beach, you will find the five-star Hotel Hospes Amerigo. In this area there are many beautiful sights within walking distance, beautiful views from the lounge bar, free rooftop spa with sauna, pool, and gym. Spacious rooms with high ceilings, luxurious interiors and all the necessary amenities await you, and there is private parking.
The minuses: There are complaints about unfriendly staff and shabby interior in the hotel rooms, unpleasant smells. The nearby car park may not have enough space during the active season, as it is not big enough.
S30 Reina Victoria
Hotel benefits: S30 Reina Victoria is a cosy, spacious and comfortable apartment hotel with its own full kitchen and everything you need for a good stay. Perfect as an option for a longer stay than 1-2 days. It is only about 10 kilometres to the airport, close to the centre, and the beach can be reached in 10 minutes. Free Wi-Fi, safe and continental breakfast are included.
The disadvantages: Apparently the hotel needs plumbing repairs, as many reviews about the poor performance of the Jacuzzi and the quality of other plumbing. There are uncomfortable rooms with high noise level from the bar located downstairs. Do not recommend them if you appreciate the silence.
The centre of Alicante is famous for a very beautiful promenade, where it is pleasant to spend time and do walks, inexpensive Central Market, and traditionally – beautiful architecture and cathedrals. The Santa Barbara Fortress is a must-see – the view of the city and the surrounding area from there is simply wonderful.
