This is apparently a four star hotel. I have no idea why. Maybe it was four stars in the 1960s/1970s when this high rise building first sprung up. The location is very central and the lobby gives a good impression when you first arrive. That's where it ends though. Step into the outdated, cramped lift and the "Tryp" begins... Arrived... More

This is a 26-storey monstrosity that serves as a very useful landmark when you may think that you are lost in the city. The entire edifice is very tired and dated...old-fashoned in a bad, tatty way and lacks any charm or atmosphere. There are 2 lifts so you often have to wait...and wait. The rooms are very dated with ugly,... More

We stayed in this 70,s hotel August 2014. It is perfect for city break we had 18th floor sea view overlooking the magnificent marina. It is great for the beach area and main shopping centre.

We have walked past the hotel for many years - we decided to give it a try. What a disappointment. Entering the foyer and bar - it is a desolate welcome - apart from a photo over reception it is bland - not a picture or plant is sight.

The hotel is old and the rooms exhibit fatigue. The beds should be better. They were poor and hard. Great location and great views. Breakfast was good. The service was a bit rude, probably the staff has poor language skills.
