Stayed a few times, mainly because of the location to old town . Fine hotel, no issues, plenty of terraces to laze about, small pool to cool off. Make sure you can get to your room by lift, if not on low floor. I'm getting on a bit and had room I had to walk up 2 floors, if you...

As in the title the good thing about this hotel was the location, 5 minute walk to bars and restaurants in old town. We had asked for a high floor room with a pool view when booking but this was totally ignored, we talked to people who had booked after us and they had got what we asked for. We...

Friendly staff and no problem to print airline tickets. Close to old town square but no noise. Rooms cleaned daily. I left money on bed one day when I went out and cleaner put it all together and put it on table in room, how honest is that. The girl in reception has worked in a couple I have stayed...

We stayed here for 11 nights in October. When I booked in April I emailed to request a room on a high floor facing the Town (no reply) When we arrived we were given room 213 (below reception) I did ask if we could be moved and was told to ask maybe tomorrow or the next day. Didn't bother as...

We have just returned from our stay here. It was clean and a great location, with friendly staff. However it is very basic - we had to ask the reception to borrow a kettle and the breakfast has a very poor selection. I'm a coeliac and luckily bought some crackers with me and my breakfast consisted of cheap cheese, crackers,...

Hotel was more like a hostel. It had a pool on ground floor but no amenities, you had to take own drinks etc . Beds & towels were changed regularly, staff were pleasant but floors in bedrooms could have done with a good clean. There were 2 roof levels with sunbeds which were pleasant and lovely views but again floors...

Whilst the hotel was clean as was the bedding etc. the whole hotel needs bringing up to date i.e. televisions need updating and the dining area furniture requires urgent attention. As out of ten the breakfast does not get a zero i.e. there should be croissants, yogurt etc. not just ham and cheese. I think older people should be made...
