Historical Traveler Reviews Hospes Amerigo Alicante
Five Star Weekend
My partner and I arrived 17th March very early in the morning and were allowed access to our room immediately. Very friendly and helpful receptionists who recommended restaurants for lunch and dinner. Can't fault the hotel at all - very stylish. Lovely building and tastefully refurbished. Would definitely recommend it. The only down side was the weather, although it was warmer than London it rained for a couple of hours each day we were there and the sun only really shone when we were getting on the plane to come home! That's life!
Best 5* ive stayed in
If Carlsberg did hotels they would be like the Amerigo!
We (family with 3 children ..aged 10,13 17) found it extremely stylish, very convenient to shops, marina,restaurants etc
The staff were endlessly helpful and friendly. The free computer with broadband in reception was a great hit with the kids. The rooms are beautifully designed in a modern comfortable vaguely eastern style. They are spacious with fabulous bathrooms. The bedrooms work well with enough space for relaxing on the sofa watching TV or DVDs (available free in reception) and for the bed. The linen was gorgeous. In fact everything was great.
I would love to have a reason to go back to Alicante just to stay here!
Excellent all round hotel
Stayed at this stylish hotel for 3 nights Jan 06...two ladies doing lunch ! well eating, drinking and shopping actually..Hotel situated just two streets back from the Marina and seafront....Alicante has some wonderful restaurants and the hotel lounge was a haven to return to....staff very friendly and nothing ever too much trouble for them...kindly offered different wines for us to try of the locality..Breakfast a real treat...Open plan bathroom a novelty and anyone with back or any problems like that then you need to request a shower rather than the climb in bath thats on offer. Visited a wonderful restaurant called Monstrelle...a hidden gem, expensive but memorable.
Overall thoroughly enjoyed and would use this hotel again.
Great Hotel in the middle of Alicante's best
Stayed in the Amerigo for 3 nights for a short break and would recommend the hotel to anyone. Room was stylish and relaxing, spa area was superb and the bar area a joy to sit in and relax. The shopping area and beach front restaurants and bars are a 2 minute walk away.
I would recommend this hotel as a great place to stay and experience everything Alicante has to offer.
A stylish gem
We booked two nights here on the basis of recommendations on TripAdvisor and from friends. From the entrance onwards, this is a seriously stylish hotel. The staff are smart but not stuffy. The public areas are spotless and full of eye-catching furniture. The room was lovely and the Korres products a definite winner. The pool on the top floor is worth a visit although you may find it fuller than we did in November. The location is also great, right in the old town and close to some good tapas bars etc.
Truely 5 Star
Just returned from a 3 night break at this wonderfull hotel. It's about a 15 min taxi ride from the airport @ 14 Euros. Located in the old town area just one street back from the seafront road it's in a prime location for the marina, beach & surrounding restaurants. Set on 4 floors with about 80 rooms the place has been decorated to a terrific standard in a classy minimalist sort of way. My wife & I stayed on a bed & breakfast basis & our room was wonderfull although the open plan bathroom was slighty different.Free minibar & a great selection of complimentary soaps' lotions & the like. Flat screen telly, electric sun blinds & a fantastic power shower. The breakfast was a terrific buffet of savaoury & sweet items plus the addition of a small cooked choice all served with fresh fruit juices....the best I've ever had!
Service was excellent & unobtrusive.... The roof top pool & terrace complex with small gym was really a chilled place. On our last day our flight was 11pm @ night. Check out is 12 noon.They looked after our cases & allowed full use of the pool etc all day as well as the shower rooms & towels etc. What a pleasant change.
Can't recommend it enough
Friends and I recently stayed at Amerigo in Alicante and fell in love with the place.
The hotel is very stylish and modern yet remains friendly and welcoming. The staff are very helpful and know the area well - we took their advice on eating out and enjoyed the best food ever eaten in Spain.
The rooms are wonderful - with a free mini-bar, soft drinks only, and wonderful products!
The rooftop pool area is an oasis of calm and is covered and heated in the winter months.
The tapas bar serves great food and rioja - staff were friendly and amusing. We met a solo visitor who said that she felt comfortable eating there in the evenings on her own - a fine recommendation.
This is a wonderfully grown-up hotel and i feel confident recommending it to anyone who wishes to make the most of staying in a very Spanish city.
Lovely Hotel in the Center of it All
My fiance and I just got back from a vacation in Alicante, Spain. We were there for 4 nights. Amerigo is a gorgeous, modern hotel. I loved how it was decorated--it's the kind of place you wish your home was modeled after as far as the decor. The room isn't huge, but it's fine for 2 people. Everything was so up-to-date, for example we had a flat screen TV and a very nice, small cordless phone.
The staff was amazing. They spoke English quite well and answered so many of our questions. We stopped by at least twice a day to get advice and recommendations, and their restaurant recommendations turned out to be excellent.
What's also really great about this hotel is the location. It's literally 2 short blocks to the marina area and another 2 blocks to the beach. It is also about a block from El Barrio, where there are tons of bars and restaurants.
Our package included a breakfast every morning. It was so classy and delicious! The hotel also has a very nice tapas bar that we ate at one of the nights--the food was very very good.
The only warning that I will provide is that it's a bit of an urban environment. It is right near Postiguet Beach, but that is more of a crowded public beach. One of the days we took a taxi to the San Juan beach, which is much more picturesque, quiet, and open. It is more of a resort area. We don't regret staying at the Amerigo, however, because part of the experience was taking in the culture found in the city and being in walking distance from alot of the action.
We highly recommend this hotel and a trip to Alicante, Spain!
Esoteric breakfast, nice staff, if the price is reasonable, go for it
The Amerigo is in a building that's still being renovated (so beware, there is no pool YET). When I stayed there I believe I was one of few guests in a pretty large hotel. The breakfast is amazing - like a tasting meal, and not unreasonably priced. You can't have your laptop plugged into electricity and into the ADSL at the same time so bring an extremely long cord. The price had dropped which is why I chose the hotel. It had previously been going for well over $200 which would be an insane price to pay in Alicante...but if it's lower, it's worth it. Much nicer than the Melia and the Portamaris.
Arrived the same day as the Barcelona football team, 2 weeks after the hotel had opened.
Amazingly stylish, great roof top pool with beautiful and polite staff.
Seems slightly at odds with the more tourist parts of Alicante, but is complimented by a couple of good and stylish restaurants in the old town.

... and chocolate for breakfast which was delicious! There was a museum of the history of chocolate making and of that particular factory. After they had shown us around there we were allowed to walk through the factory but there wasn't too much to see in there. After that we went into the factory's chocolate shop where there were free samples (yummy!!) and we bought some chocolate that was made there. We got lunch on the way home which was another traditional ...
