Our Curated Collection

The lively town of Alicante is located in the heart of Costa Blanca on the shores of the Mediterranean. Pretty much all of the places of interest are located in the center and are best visited on foot.

For this reason, we have compiled a list of hotels thats are exclusively in the center of Alicante. That way you can easily go to the beach and other sites in the city, and then return to enjoy all its services and amenities. But if you are looking for more space and independence, take a look below at our section of apartments in Alicante’s city center.

Top 12 Hotels in Alicante City



A 2-minute walk from the beach, the Meliá Alicante offers excellent views of both the Postiguet Beach and the port. And almost all of the rooms have terrace and sea views. Besides the awesome terraces, you can always immerse yourself in the endless expanse of the sea from the infinity pool, one of the perks of staying at The Level, a separate part of the hotel that's for adults only.

In its spacious rooms that are modern in style and impeccable in appearance, you can enjoy flat-screen TV, minibar and air conditioning, as well as free WiFi throughout the hotel.

Remember to visit the Trasluz restaurant, specializing in rice dishes and fresh fish, after a visit to the Co-cathedral of San Nicolás or the Santa Cruz neighborhood, both located just 600 meters away.

The Meliá Alicante has its own private parking. It costs 20 €/day.



The Hotel Serawa Alicante is a 4 star accommodation located 2 minutes from the beach and very close to other places of interest such as the Explanada de España and the Museum of Contemporary Art. The reason why we recommend this accommodation above other hotels in Alicante's center is because of its fabulous facilities, relaxed atmosphere and avant-garde furniture.

The hotel has been designed with sustainability in mind. Besides using eco friendly materials and having hypoallergenic rooms, Serawa is all about giving guests a healthy and rejuvenating experience. The hotel’s restaurant offers some incredible dining experiences (including vegan options) made with the best locally sourced ingredients.

Unfortunately, there is no parking at the Hotel Serawa Alicante.



Although the city is home to several hotels from this chain, the Eurostars Mediterránea Plaza is the most beautiful of them all. The wonderful views of the old town from its rooftop terrace is one of the many advantages this hotel has to offer. In fact, if the Eurostars Mediterránea Plaza stands out for anything, it’s for its location: next to the Plaza Santísima Faz and the town hall – one of our favorite areas of the city. And the Santa Barbara Castle and the Postiguet Beach are just a short walk away. In addition, the hotel is not only surrounded by a large number of restaurants, but also offers a varied buffet breakfast.

Moreover, this 4-star accommodation boasts not only WiFi, gym and sauna, but also modern rooms, equipped with air conditioning, TV and minibar.

Although the Eurostars Mediterránea Plaza doesn’t have its own parking, it offers guests a discounted rate of 9.50 €/day at a nearby parking.



The Hotel Spa Porta Maris by Meliá is located 100 meters from the Paseo de Las Palmeras, between Postiguet Beach and the marina. But, what sets this accommodation apart from other Alicante hotels in downtown? Its water facilities, consisting of a spa and heated pool. In addition, you can also enjoy massages, facials and body treatments. Nothing like pampering your body after a hard training session in the hotel’s gym – or just relaxing on the beach, we won’t judge.

You can then decide whether to admire the views of the Bay of Alicante from your room or from the Alborada lounge – where the buffet breakfast is served. There’s also the Marabierta Restaurant that offers typical Mediterranean dishes.

Parking at this hotel costs 19.95 €/day.



The Casa Alberola Alicante, Curio Collection is a Hilton property located in the heart of the city, near the Museum of Contemporary Art. Next to it you will also find the picturesque Explanada de España and the Bulevar Plaza Shopping Center.

A 20-minute walk from the city center and the beach, the AC Hotel Alicante by Marriott makes up for the distance through its proximity to the bus and train stations and its multitude of amenities.

Located in the commercial area of Alicante and just a few meters from both the bus stop to the airport and the train and bus stations, Eurostars Centrum Alicante is the ideal choice for those looking for a quality hotel at a good price.

Although the Eurostars Centrum is closer to the city’s transportation hubs, it is further away from the old town and the beach. But since Alicante isn’t such a large city, it’s quite manageable. For example, the co-cathedral of San Nicolás and the Postiguet Beach are 1 and 1.5 kilometers away respectively, so you can still walk to both in under 20 minutes.

On your return, you can choose to relax on the hotel's furnished solarium, surrounded by plants, or access the sauna, steam bath or your own jacuzzi.

To savor Mediterranean cuisine, sit down at the Centrum Restaurant or enjoy the hotel's buffet breakfast on the terrace.
