Recommended Hotels in Alicante City
Alicante airport is the main arrival place for tourists coming to the Costa Blanca but most of them bypass Alicante City and go straight to a resort on the Costa Blanca. Alicante City is well worth visiting for at least one night if not more and if you do decide to spend a night there you will find some great hotels on this page.
Alicante 4 Star Hotels:
Hotel Husa Alicante Golf
Located some 800m from Playa de San Juan this beautiful property is a great choice for family holidays with access to a full-sized golf course.
Mediterranea Plaza Hotel
The main advantage of this hotel is its location in the centre of Alicante overlooking a square and the Town Hall. There are plenty of bars and shops around it and it is only a short walk to the beach and the marina. There is a sun terrace on the roof which has beautiful views of the castle. Not the most luxurious of 4 star hotels but this is made up for by the friendly staff and some good offers on prices.

Castilla Alicante Hotel
This hotel is located very near the San Juan beach about a 15 minute car ride from Alicante centre.
