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. It is also near all the local eateries and bars. Great position for short stay. It is a bit dated but overall very clean with... More

The hotel is visible from all over town, great location. But the hotel is old and decor dates back to the 70ies. Rooms are quite large, very hard and uncomfortable beds. Safe in room does not work and you have to put in 1 euro for it to work. Recption staff seemd very uninterested in their guests. Excellent views though... More

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.

We stayed in the hotel only one night in a superior room in 15th floor, the room was big and nice. We also liked the hard, broad beds. The location of the hotel is excellent, it is in the old town, very close to paseo and boat harbour. We had a great view from our hotel to the castle on... More

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.

I'm sure this hotel when it was first built it was considered first class, but not so now. It's seems it's not been updated since it was first built. The furnishings are now shabby and worn and so out of date. The staff were very pleasant and the breakfast was great, but we won't be staying there again.

Rooms are so old and very tired. Old window air conditioning units which are very loud, rooms did not appear to be very clean and this was after we asked for upgrades so goodness knows what we would have found had we not upgraded. Will certainly not stay here again.
