This three-and-a-half-pearl, 100-room hotel is located just outside the center of Alicante. It's only a 10-minute drive from Alicante Airport and a five-minute drive from the beach. It's sleek and modern property, with facilities geared towards business travelers rather than tourists. Rooms are contemporary and comfortable, equipped with modern amenities like flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, and free Wi-Fi. There's an extensive business center with conference rooms and meeting facilities, as well as some attractive leisure facilities including a rooftop pool with city views, fitness center with a hot tub and sauna, modern bar, and a Mediterranean restaurant that serves a breakfast buffet for a fee. Holidaymakers might prefer to stay at the Melia Alicante, a modern beachfront hotel that adds a full-service spa and several bars.
Modern hotel with sober, sharp look that's geared toward business travelers
The NH Alicante Hotel sits alongside a busy main road in a largely residential area of Alicante. It doesn't have your typical tourist surroundings, so leisure travelers tend to stay closer to the main town and the beach. Most guests here are business travelers attending conferences at the hotel itself, or flight attendants going to and from the nearby airport. The hotel is sleek and contemporary throughout, and the lobby is bright, with a highly polished floor, high ceilings, white walls, and minimalist brown-and-orange tone furnishings. There are plenty of modern seating areas dotted around where guests gather for casual meetings, as well as a contemporary Mediterranean restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. Though small, the rooftop pool is a great place to cool off or relax on a sun lounger, plus it has lovely views over the city. The hotel's only downside is that it lacks atmosphere, owing to the fact that it's business-focused.
A 10-minute drive from Alicante Airport, but nothing much within walking distance
The hotel is conveniently located for anyone who needs to stay close to the airport, which is only 10 minutes away by car. Alternatively, there's a bus stop within walking distance of the hotel that takes you straight there. Guests can also catch a bus to Murcia, Gandia, Elche, Alicante Old Town, Platja de Postiguet, and the marina. By car, Alicante Old Town and the beach are around five minutes away. Santa Barbara Castle is a 10-minute drive from the hotel, while the Gothic Basilica of Santa Maria is a five-minute drive away. El Corte Ingles department store is around a 10-minute drive, and Carrefour Hypermarket is a five-minute drive, though there's a smaller supermarket just across the road, along with a few tapas restaurants and bars.
Bright and contemporary with air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi -- some with separate living areas
All 100 rooms and suites at NH Alicante are spacious and clean, decorated in a modern style with hardwood floors, neutral tones, dark wood furniture, and contemporary light fittings. Standard Rooms are a tad plain, while Superior Rooms and Suites add red accents and bright floor-to-ceiling windows. Some rooms have dull views overlooking the street, while those on higher floors feature nice views over the city. In-room amenities include air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, minibars, safes, phones, and free Wi-Fi. Upgraded rooms add tea/coffee facilities, and some have additional living areas and furnished balconies. Bathrooms are small and modern, and all include shower/tub combos, separate toilets with bidets, hairdryers, and free hotel branded toiletries. Guests should note that street-facing rooms can be noisier due to traffic outside, so light sleepers may prefer to request a room at the back of the hotel.
Extensive business center, rooftop pool, fitness center, hot tub, sauna, Mediterranean restaurant and bar, and free Wi-Fi
The hotel's facilities are mostly geared toward business travelers, though tourists and families with children are also well-catered for should they not mind the trek into town or the beach. The contemporary lounge serves drinks and light snacks in a relaxed setting, and there's a Mediterranean restaurant offering traditional Spanish fare and a special children's menu. A breakfast buffet is served here in the mornings with hot items cooked-to-order, but it's not included in the room rate. Room service is available, though hours are limited.
There's an extensive business center at the hotel, with spacious conference rooms and meeting facilities, plus a 24-hour front desk and free newspapers in the lobby. Leisure facilities include a (tiny) rooftop pool with sun loungers and city views, plus a small modern fitness center with a hot tub and sauna. There's no spa. On-site parking is available for a fee, though free parking can be found nearby. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel, though it can be slow.
