Park with geese, walk ways and benches next to the hotel's parking. Extensive breakfast buffet, a real treat. Rooms well insulated from hallway and neighbor noise. No WIFI, but room hookup to internet available for a small price. The staff is quite welcoming and helpful.

My stay in the Maritim last week just confirmed my earlier comments. It is still the staff that makes this a great hotel. The refurbishments continue and the food has improved. The Bar and its Manager are brilliant. Breakfast under the control of Sarha Licht is excellent and reception is superb as ever. Martin Knowles

I stayed there for 2 nights. I had a suite on the 14th floor and what a view of the city. Location is near the main shopping street and near the restaurants (around 10-15 min walk). Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is simply amazing. A big plus is that this hotel gets its own honey from the bees on the... More

I've been using this hotel for three or four weeks a year for about twelve years on business. Sure it needs a bit of updating to the rooms but they're clean and have all the things you need. The staff are excellent. Food in the restaurant is top notch and cheap for what you get.

We booked a family room (2 open bed rooms with a bath room) on the 8th floor. We had dinner in the hotel (wasn't special but ok). For breakfast you have a large choice (buffet).

Whilst earlier reviews regarding the Hotel being a little tired are understandable I believe the customer service,friendliness of staff, quality of food, cleanliness and ambience of the bar/restaurant more than compensates. Whilst we found everyone to be very professional the "Messi" of the team is the Bar Manager. I did give him this feedback but he said he would rather... More

As it is a 4 star hotel, I was definitely expecting some better conditions. First of all, it is quite old and the rooms' furnishings and equipment can clearly show it. Some renovation would be a main point I would recomment.
