No. No. No. No. Just no. Only attempt this place if you are on a death wish. I'm not going to sugar coat it. The alleyway consisted of urine, rubbish and a persistent restaurant owner who (at every chance) tried to drag you into his dingy, stinking restaurant to eat some unknown (possibly poisoned) food. That's just the start. The... More

After reading previous reviews before departure, we came to the conclusion that this hotel couldn't be as bad as previous reviews.... how wrong were we. Our first impression was a bad start as our taxi driver laughed when we said where we were staying. We were dropped off at the entrance to a very seedy looking underground "ladies club" We... More

Really nice little Hotel in the centre of Torromilnos . It's really handy for transport links . The staff are really friendly and my room was lovely and clean and was freshened up daily. It is a budget Hotel so keep that in mind when booking. It's my 4th stay and I have always been pleased.

I have never experienced breakfast so bad stale bread and rolls, white only, not one cooked breakfast or fresh fruit in 7 days. The room wasn,t very clean and the beds were abysmal. The location was good for shops and restaurants.

Wasn't permitted to take a drink or food of our... More

TBH I'd say this hotel is more 2 star than 3 star...location is fantastic right in the heart of 100s of shops and 2 minutes from the busy square with bars and restaurants. Though it is a long walk to the beach down a lot of stairs... there is a lift to take most of the strain if you wish...but... More

Well to be honest you get what you pay for...we went half board but wish we would have gone self catering.the hotel is centrally located...but access to the beach requires a good walk or the lift down.....not recommended for people with very young children or the elderly or people who have walking difficulties. The breakfast was cold meat and cheese... More
