Expert review of Tryp Ciudad de Alicante
Under the same management as Gravina Cinco, two doors down, this well-situated small hotel shares much the same facilities, and guests are occasionally offered accommodation in one (usually with an up-grade) if the other is full. It is a bit older in style than Gravina Cinco, (re-decorated three years ago) and while you wouldn’t think to book it for a romantic weekend, it’s a good choice for a mid-range stay to discover Alicante.
Close to the beach, restaurants, shops and tourist attractions, and only a few minutes' walk from one of the bus stops on the airport shuttle route and the trenet, the local train that travels the coast as far as Denía.
Rooms are functional, clean and comfortable, rather than knock-your-socks off gorgeous. The singles are spacious, and none of the rooms feel particularly cramped. The doubles with a salon have sofas and chairs, and one of them has a very large terrace. Most of the doubles have a terrace, although there really isn’t anything of interest to look at. The first-floor bedrooms are dedicated to smokers.
An acceptable buffet breakfast of tea, coffee, rolls, toast, cheese and ham, is the only meal served, but there are plenty of restaurants, cafeterias and tapas bars nearby. Tea, coffee, fruit and biscuits are available 24 hours a day in the breakfast room.
Staff are helpful and friendly.
Mainly business people, couples and singles looking for well-situated, reasonably-priced accommodation. Families at weekends and holidays.
There is free WiFi throughout the hotel, but Internet connection for 2 euros for 15 minutes, 6 euros per hour, is a bit steep. The breakfast buffet is an additional 7 euros. Secure parking is a reasonably-priced 12 euros per day. A double room with small salon has a supplement of 20 euros on top of standard double room rate.
