              • Couple
                10.0

                Excellent location. I had a room with ocean view - it's magnificent. I've got it on deal, so I payed around 70EUR/Night for double, which is good. Free parking. Good restaurant just across the road. Clean room, big, with 1 big double bed (not 2 separated). Excellent breakfast. A lot of stuff like maps, guides at the reception.

                In the shower it is not convenient to have only top shower. Detachable shower or hand shower would be much better.

              • Family with children
                7.8

                front desk staff was very helpful. good location (quiet, 1 block from ocean, walking distance to shops and downtown interests.)

                Housekeeping does not do dishes (there's a letter in the room stating this) which may have been in writing when we booked but we did not see so it surprised us. Daily housekeeping is very minimal (new towels and fold the duvets.) Only 1 computer in lobby in a congested area (sometimes a wait.)

              • Single
                5.8

                Complimentary breakfast was included in the room rate and the variety was good.

                Wi-fi is so common that it should be provided free to the guests.

              • Single
                4.6

                Nothing. I was disappointed. I have been in many hotels in the world: first time I go to a hotel that I see a big broom in the shower. I thought it was left behind by the staff. After my shower I understood it was to sweep the water into the hole. I had to do it because the toilets were inundated with the shower water and my shoes would get wet when I used the toilets.. I was disgusted after every shower, i could not do anything as i had already paid for the 3 days i booked.

                8.4

                We were upgraded to a larger room which made us more comfortable. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful.

                Noisy on the weekend even though it was 2 blocks off the main street.

              • Single

                Nice, quiet, convenient location, just minutes from centre.

                10.0

                The staff was great. On the day we were leaving (6:30am) the front desk person opened the breakfast buffet early for us (7am is when it started). The breakfast buffet was very great! Enjoyed our stay.

                The convenience; the geneous beakfast; the willingnss of the reception desk staff

                The fact that sevice of the oom was intemittent and that seveal imes, no towels or the wrong-sized towels wee elft in the bathoom. Requirng u to make effots to get towels.

              • Single
                2.4

                Staff would not cooperate at all for changing a date. Apparently they value money over customer satisfaction.

              • Single
                7.4

                good location, possibility to book excursions, pick-up from this hotel by airport shutle-bus and by excursion's bus, very good breakfast (nice croissants, good bread, delicious fish, fruits, wafles, yougourt etc), nice room with lovely old-fashion white meubles (hair dryer, shower gel, tea/cofee in the room), luggage room after check-out.

                Easy parking within easy reach of centre town , clean , lovely buffet breakfeast

                Beds too soft

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                We booked the hotel on an 'April Fool' deal so we could afford 1 room each! Never done this before but for 2 folk that are not 'together' a double room is very cosy as there are 2 single beds pushed together. Great location for centre and goods views from most rooms over the water. Not sumptuous but clean and functional.

                The receptionist took the booking reference and only checked us into 1 room. I had to tell her we had 2 rooms and then she admitted her mistake and gave us the other room 2 floors away! Other than that this hotel is excellent value for money.

                Wifi was very expensive but a pc was avaliable in the lobby for free

              • Couple
                8.8

                location, close to everything - city center, bus terminal, local bus terminal, shops

                no hot breakfast possible, e.g. soft eggs, sausage,..

              • Couple
                8.2

                Well located, with helpful staff. Decor was average but comfortable.

                The breakfast whilst plentiful was far from tasty.
