Nothing like photos but not terrible

29 Nov 2019
This hotel is good value and in a really good location only a couple of minutes walk from bars, restaurants, shops and the beach. However, do not use the room photos as a selling point to book here...

Although the rooms were very clean - the rooms were very tired and are in desperate need of refurbishment. Décor and accessories are still in the 80's.

Not good value for money. Water pouring through ceiling directly outside lift from the day we arrived to the day we left - no sign of it being remedied. Furniture in room had extensive water damage. No space in room to put clothes or luggage, not clean or in good state of repair. Would not go there for free.

Always clean and new towels every 2 days. Great location for Old Town and beach. Small but usable swimming pool. Friendly staff. Breakfast not great, better over road at €3:50.

It's officially rated 2 star and that's all it is. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the sun shines on the balcony first thing in the morning and lovely views of the old town the higher the floor. If you want to sit in your hotel room all holiday then book 5 star.

Rooms cleaned and towels changed every day. Kettle and small fridge in rooms and worktop just big enough to make a cold snack. 5 minutes walk to square with loads of restaurants and bars. Location good.

Hotel staff were pleasant and helpful, rooms were clean and tidied regularly. Breakfast was adequate but could do with more options and the young lady sorting breakfast needed help. Only a few minutes walk from the beach and the centre square.

Pros; a basic but clean hotel. Excellent location for the old town and the beach. Friendly staff. Basic rooms. Lovely courtyard to relax in.

Cons; breakfast is extremely basic, beds aren't the most comfortable, water warm not hot, balcony fits one chair only.

Location is great a five minute walk to the square. Hotel is basic but clean. Towels changed every other day. Beds made every day. There is a small fridge in the room which was very handy. Hotel could do with a makeover as some aspects were dated.

Rooms clean. Bathroom small, could have done without bidet. Lovely location, staff friendly. Could not fault it for the price even if a bit dated. Can't comment on the pool as did not use it, as beach not far away.

In a great location, clean and comfortable, though the smell of smoke in our room from previous occupants on arrival was most unpleasant! Great location and friendly staff. Breakfast could be improved by more choice, ie. adding eggs, tomatoes, different cereal choices.
