Address: Pintor Lorenzo Casanova, 31, Alicante, 03003, Spain

Star rating:
4 star hotel

4.4

The setting may be a little worn, but stone shines.

More a businessman’s hotel than a romantic hideaway, the Centrum none-the-less attracts tourists because of its situation close to the Alicante’s main railway station. After a complete refurbishment two years ago, almost everything still has the sheen of the brand-new.

Location

The neighbourhood may not be the most charming in Alicante, being an ordinary working-class barrio, but it’s still close enough to all the main facilities.

Bedrooms

Bedrooms sleep any numbers from two to five people, and are bright and airy, with lots of pale colours and dark woods. There is plenty of storage space, and the double beds are mostly king-size. The bathrooms are large, with a good selection of toiletries. Some of the suites and junior suites have a hydro-massage shower.

Public areas

The attractive lobby is fitted out with contemporary white leather sofas and pale grey upholstered chairs (some of which show a sign of wear). There is a small library, surprisingly well stocked and organised, from which guests can rent books.

Eating and drinking

A good, varied breakfast is served, although expensive at 16€. Being mainly a businessman’s hotel, you need to make sure you don’t get down too late for breakfast or you might lose out, as foods aren’t always replenished as they should be. The bar serves snacks throughout the day. The Aitana restaurant serves dishes based on the local cuisine.

Leisure facilities

The free gym is quite small, but perfectly adequate for a short work-out. There is also a sauna and sun terrace for guests use.

Service

Pleasant and friendly.

Who stays there

Mainly businessmen and overnighter’s but also people looking for city a centre hotel.

WiFi is 6 euros per hour but cable connection is free.
