We had a very pleasant stay in this pension. Lady Caroline, who is the owner, is a very friendly woman. She made us feel at home in her clean and shiny pension. She deserves good guests in her well decorated rooms. Next time we will come back to her for sure.

After 6 years of absence, this year I choose to visit Alicante once again. My first choice of accommodation was a small, clean and friendly heaven in the Bario that I have visited 6 years ago – at the time celebrating it’s first successful year in business.

Nice, cozy, clean pensjonat.Położony near the beach and the main attractions of Alicante. The room we stayed in was comfortable. He had a kettle and cups, so when we woke in the morning to "wake up" to the freshly brewed coffee.

This accomodation is right in the middle of Down town - towards the Sct Nicolas Cathedral. Caroline meets you in the reception in the most kind and helpful way. The rooms are very nice - really tasteful decorated and I really enjoyed staying at San Nicolas. Already looking forward to return to Alicante. Best wishes from Ingrid

We generally like to stay in local establishments rather than American chain hotels when we travel abroad. We have stayed in our fair share of small, family-run pensions and generally enjoy that. Unfortunately, this was not one of our better experiences. First of all, the entry was very dim and not overly clean. We never saw anyone except the maid... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The pension is a little hotel of 8 bedrooms (4 doubles, 2 singles, 1 for 3 persons and 1 for 4 persons). 5 of the bedrooms have got their own private bathroom and the 3 remaining are sharing 2 bathrooms. The pension is located in the heart of the old town, just behind the Cathedral San Nicolas. It´s next to all the bars, cafes and restaurants. In 5 minutes walk from here you are at the Alicante beach El Postiguet and next to all the site of interests....the port, the castle Santa Barbara, the old quarter Santa Cruz, the main street La Rambla, the theatre, the town hall, the Tram which takes you to the beach of San Juan & Campello. The pension is managed by its owner, Caroline, and its aim is to be as welcoming and helpful as possible offering a great range of tips and advises on your arrival in Alicante. As the pension is next to the night bars, at week ends some of the rooms are noisy but this is perfect for party goers or heavy sleepers! The reception opening hours are 10h30 - 23h00. The hosts are given a set of keys on arrival which allow them to enter anytime...just like at home and that´s the aim of this small place....for you to feel just like at home! ... more   less
