Excellente location for public transport and night life. Personnel friendly and helpful. But, as other customers observed, the lack of a lift makes life difficult if you have heavy luggage. There's no lobby area or a place to sit. I had my coffee/tea outside the door leaning on the wall. The carpet in the room is old and filthy and...

I led a group of 15 from the USA and arrived at the hotel at about 1 am. The staff was very helpful in getting us checked in quickly. We chose this hotel because it was cheap and met our needs for a quick night before we headed out to Jerusalem. Our group of 15 took a 15 passenger bus...

I expected more according to the score they had. However the hotel is really bad. The bathroom was in very bad conditions and the smell was horrible. The customer service pretty normal, I requested a taxi to the airport, the receptionist told me a price and the driver charged me higher. There is no elevator and to get to the...

Stayed here on 2 occasions during April 2016, and was very disappointed after reading all of the positive reviews. The location is great (market 2 minutes / beach 10 minutes), the price is cheap and the roof-top terrace is okay....but....the staff would have to be the most unfriendly people I have ever met working at a hotel, the room was...

We booked a room for a couple after reading the Tripadvisor reviews. Upon entering, I followed all the tips and asked to be placed in a room away from the bars - "I'm sorry, they're all full" I was told. The bar was open late (2-3AM?). It was mostly a noticeable murmur, but occasionally someone screaming. It didn't wake us...

Reviewed 12 March 2016

Very central location yet a quiet one. Next to the beach, the commercial zone, tranportation. Simple and comfortable room. Nice top roof terracy. The only defect is the address, as it is a little street that nobody in the neighborhood seems no know. Of course, just small inconvenient. Highly recomended.
