      The spa area in the basement look nice. Close to shops and bus stop.

      Its old, unpleasant and doesn't look like 4 stars hotel at all, doesn't look like on the pictures, for sure not a good place to young peolpe. Very disapointed.

      the breakfast buffet was very good , also a comfy bed, a cafe with nice pastries/coffee.

      The location! Easy Parking! Nice Roof top pool!

      Room was poor with very hard bed and no view!

    • 7.8
      Very good

      friendly staff, clean rooms, english breakfast, location is good if you don't mind city view, clean indoor pool, the hotel is for you if you spend most of your day sightseeing. bottom line is this hotel is very good value for money.

      gym outdated.

      Guest rating

      Breakfast was good value for money.

      It was rated as a four star on website. However on arrival I was very dissapointed to find the size of the double room of a 4 star. The bathroom was very ordinary. All facilities were more of a Three star hotel, rather than a four star.

    • 7.4
      Very good

      The staff were lovely very friendlyand helpfull. The breakfast was great and the location was perfect, close to the beach and the bus stop so so you could go anywhere, the cafe was also lovely.

      When I went to book some treatments I was told that there was nobody there that could carry them out, I was really disappointed as this was one of the main reasons I booked this hotel. There are is work going onat the in the indoor pool and sauna so I could not use these for my last two days

    • 8.2

      Good clean and friendly hotel. Very good value and very well placed for travel within the island

    • 6.6
      Nice

      The Location of the hotel is excellent. The cleaning staff are excellent, cleaning every single day at any and all hours.The price was good (budget prices). Staff at poolside bar were extremely friendly and pleasant and good at their jobs.

      There were no sea views anywhere except the public pool area. The first room we got was tiny and we were charged 10 euro to move to another room even though we moved our own belongings. The air con did not work in any of the rooms (and it was 42 degrees on the hottest day), the staff in the indoor bar and restaurant were border line rude and unhelpful. They book you a taxi from hotel for transfer, charge you the same price as a normal taxi and then a large bus arives and stops at other hotels. You had to pay extra for every little thing, eg. kettle in room, use of fridge in room, safe in room etc. Restaurant attached to Hotel that they promote is absolutely appauling. They have lots of rules for guests and use of swimming pool and general clothing around hotel, but then do not enforce any of them. The lifts were broken half the time.

    • 8.0
      Great

      the hotel was in a central location and nice and quiet.The food was good and the staff were helpful.the swimming pools were clean and appreciated as the weather was very hot.

      I didnt like the air con system in the room and found it hard to sleep as did my two companions.

    • 7.0
      Very good

      Staff Kindness and Professionality in every circumstance,thanks for all! Christian Pascone

      1)The view of the balconies of the room,too much poor because of the presence of ugly buildings around 2) The external aspect of the walls of the hotel,most of which were uncared and decading. 3)The swimming pool ambient could be enriched more and should be better furnished .

    • 7.4
      Very good

      The air conditioning is on timer and doesnt work most of the time, one night the aircondition actually started dripping in the middle of the night
