DOWNTOWN APARTMENT, 100 METERS FROM THE BEACH

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Alicante City Centre - Downtown apartment

2 bedroom apartment for 4 people along the promenade in Alicante

Located in the historic city rehabilitated. Next to the Town Hall Square, museums, restaurants, bars, etc.. First displayed the beautiful castle of Alicante. The famous promenade of The Esplanade and the beach of Alicante 'The Postiguet' are less than 100m. Also very close to the marina. All services are easily accessible. It is ideal for enjoying the city and the beach without having to use car because you can walk to the most prominent landmarks. It is also the typical scene of numerous local festivals. It's in the fourth floor of a 5-storey building, of course has an elevator. It has a living room, two bedrooms (one double bed), bathroom and separate kitchen. The fully renovated in 2008. You sound insulation on the balconies, and air conditioning, electric heating and flat screen TV. It also has internet.

Surroundings of the apartment: It corresponds to the oldest part of the city, surrounding the castle of Alicante. Most of the pedestrian streets with many historic buildings, several museums, restaurants and bars, there are some lovely squares. The area is fully restored, making it a clean area with little vehicle traffic, however, there are some streets where you can park relatively close to the apartment, but parking in the same street as the apartment has a time limitation. When you cross a street, is the beach town, well cared for and monitored, although at some times of summer can be a little overcrowded. At that same point begins the promenade of 'The Esplanade' which is the most prominent landmark of the city and a meeting place for all visitors, with markets, terraces and chat rooms.

The apartment: It is located in a 5-storey building, about 60 years old. It has a wide doorway with a lift. The apartment is simple but functional and well equipped. Despite being in a lively area of the city is quiet because it is in a 4th floor and has glass insulators. It is relatively light, although it is facing north, being a high floor and not have buildings casting shadows across it. In addition, Alicante is a very bright and warm, so the guidelines are more favorable north in the warmer months of the year.

re-vitalising

  • 5 out of 5
very clean comfortable and relaxing. Although our Spanish is non-existent Maria and Carlos managed to explain things for us. It was very quiet and so nice to pop down to the little shop for fresh bread every morning.
The apartment was well stocked with utensils and crockery.
It is situated in such an ideal position for the beach and esplanade in the day and for restaurants in the evening
It had all that was needed for a 2 week stay and we wish we were still there!!

Super Lage für einen Urlaub in Alicante

  • 4 out of 5
Die Wohnung ist ideal für Urlauber, die nahe am Strand, Hafen, Explanada sein wollen: schon vor dem Frühstück oder noch schnell vor dem Schlafen an den Strand gehen zu können, ist einfach klasse! Der Kontakt zum Vermieter und zu Maria war gut und sehr korrekt - Danke!!!
Leider gibt es Nächte, in denen es laut sein kann (am Wochenende: Jugendliche auf der Straße oder auch durch den Aufzug).
Insgesamt ist die Wohnung vor allem auch durch ihre gute Lage weiter zu empfehlen.

Great place

  • 5 out of 5
Stayed here for 2 weeks in June/July and had a great time. Am a seasoned traveller to Alicante but absolutely love the place. Usually stay in a hotel but decided to rent an apartment and glad I did. Comfortable, great access to the City and beach and would recommend it to everyone. Just around the corner from the beach, quite street and friendly neighbours

Superb location!!

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment actually exceeded our expectations having had a new kitchen and bathroom fitted and a new sofa. A coffee filter machine and hair dryer were provided as well as a fridge freezer, microwave and full size oven - hard to find in self catering accommodation!

The local contacts are really friendly and helpful though a knowledge of Spanish is very useful in making all the appropriate arrangements etc.

The location is fairly quiet at night and has great views of the old town from the street facing windows. The flat is literally about 2-3 minutes from the harbour and beach. Heading in the other direction it is about 5 minutes walk to the Cathedral, museums, Ramblas, plus the hundreds of tiny restaurants and bars in the pretty Old Town.

Also worth mentioning is that the Airport bus C-6 which costs just 2.60 euros, stops just around the corner.

We would definitely return - Alicante also exceeded our expectations - it is charming, compact but with plenty to do and see and when we went in early April, fairly quiet and un-touristy . Highly recommended!

Great place for first viist to Alicante

  • 4 out of 5
Overall, I strongly recommend this apartment again, especially to first time visitors to Alicante. Alfedo was quite accomodating and helpful with my several pre-arrival questions. The location in the old city is, as advertised, fantastic. So many restaurants and bars close by, and of course there is the beach and promenade. We felt safe the entire week. While having a car was necessary for me to travel to OHIM, my son and friend took the tram up the coast, the ferry out to a coatal island and the signtseeing bus to explore the city. Visiting the castle that hovers above the city (and apartment) is a must do, with awesome views. I really could not think of a better location to experience Alicante.

While the apartment is somewhat cramped for three adults, the location makes up for it. And it was such an easy drive for me to OHIM where I was working. Parking, by the way, was not that difficult. The map provided shows public parking down near the beach.

In terms of things little that could be done to improve slightly the livability of the apartment, I recommend adding several hooks and racks in the bathroom and the back of the door. We always have towels and shaving kits that need to be hung up, especially with multiple people using the same apartment. Providing laundry detergent would be a nice touch also, as we enjoyed having the washing machine greatly, but had to go out and find where to buy it.

In terms of more major things, putting WIFI in the apartment would be a very helpful step, and in the future I may only stay in apartments that have WIFI. My son frequently was searching for areas in town for free WIFI in order to stay connected with his friends. The absence of Internet is the only thing preventing me from giving this place 5 starts.

Otherwise, the air conditioning worked well, as did the kitchen set up and the washer.

Maria met us to "check us in" and her lack of English was not that big of a deal, as my son spoke a little Spanish. Otherwise, that might be an issue for English-only speaking guests.

Nice appartment in center of the city

  • 4 out of 5
On arrival at February, we were received by a very friendly Spanish lady. The appartment is situated at the center of Alicante just as descripted. It was clean, well equiped and well maintain, as specially the badroom and the kitchen. Although the appartment has two bedrooms. The bedroom at the streetsite has a 2 persons bed for small people, and is very noisy. The other bedroom has two beds and is relatively quiet. There we slept very good. Some times you hear the elevator, but that was no problem. At Alicante is not difficult to find good restaurants, from cheap till expensive. It seems the Dutch and English haven't the spoiled this city. There's also a good possibility to walk at the center and at the sea side. We had a very good stay at the appartment.

Golf: In Alicante there are numerous golf courses nearby, but mostly there are two fields, 'Golf El Plantío' and 'Alicante Golf', which are 5 minutes from the city. 'Alicante Golf' has been designed by Severiano Ballesteros and a spectacular par 72, under the peculiar distribution of 6 par 3's, 6 par 4's and 6 par 5; unique design in the Iberian Peninsula and whose success lies in not allowing golfers to play no two consecutive holes with the same pair, an option that makes much more varied and fun game that encourages both Birdie many options.
