If you'd like to renew, unwind and revive while you wait for your flight, particularly if it is early morning or late evening flight, then airport hotels are the best option. The airport is 11 km from the Alicante city centre, so it is a central base to explore the city as well as neighbouring regions such as Elche, Torrevieja, Benidorm, and Murcia.
Several hotels can be found next to the airport, offering accommodation for all budgets and sometimes airport transfers as well. These hotels tend to be luxurious, but budget hotel chains can be found adjacent to the main N332 road.
Hotels in Historic Old Town
Alicante retains a laid-back, cosmopolitan feel thanks to its historic old town. The old city centre, known as El Barrio consists of gothic buildings, traditional squares, Baroque cathedral and historic buildings with modern touches lent by eye-catching boutiques and markets. Not surprisingly, the vibrancy of these buildings has been restored into chic boutique hotels. Besides budget hotels also can be found in this lively area, which boasts some of the best restaurants in the city.
Hotels near Alicante beaches and marina
Alicante is blessed with 320 days of sunshine each year, meaning tourists come here to enjoy the sun, lounge chairs, umbrellas, and many beach activities.

Alicante beach resorts cater to every budget, from luxury four-star spa hotels to budget holiday apartments. While smaller hotels offer a more personalized service, larger hotel chains boast of extra facilities such as Wi-Fi, gym, and restaurant.
