I stayed there for two nights over a weekend. We had two double rooms (one of which for single use) with sea view pre-paid and confirmed directly from the hotel. Even though the room was pre-paid, we informed the hotel we would have been there at around midnight. No problem, they said. Upon arrival, the guy at the reception checks... More

Key points as follows: - Wi-Fi Internet in rooms VERY poor and glacially slow when / if it works. - Bar only open for 3 hours each evening. - No coffee maker and only water in room fridge. - Only Italian language...

Having stayed in this hotel with a large number of rooms booked for conference delegates I can only say that this hotel was a disappointment. The rooms are tied and cramped, the support for the business traveler is poor, e.g. the was only one electric socket in the room and you had to move the desk to find it. Don't... More

Pretty average for this brand. Staff were friendly and efficient but room small and dated. No coffee makings, variable electrics and lights and poor water pressure. Small bar shuts early; quite surprised if you want a drink after 9pm. Location is fine but non sea view rooms suffer traffic noise. Mercure should be better than this.

Looking back at the entire experience, I was not overly impressed with the hotel from an American business hotel perspective. I stayed there for two weeks and I would rate it as an average stay at best. The most impressive part of my stay was the professionalism and courtesy of the staff. They were very informative and helpful as we... More

Perfect for overnight, clean, nice size room, good shower and air conditioning. Pool didnt look that inviting but only because its in the car park! Sea view room worth the extra few euro....Fabulous view over the bay with all the sea/port traffic. Staff pleasant and helpful. Bit outside the town but fantastic restaurant close by with lovely promenade opposite. Secure... More

Hotel is nicely located by the see. You will need about 20 minutes walk from the hotel to the new and old town center. Parking place is watched and fenced. Breakfast is solid however not very special. Rooms are nice but slightly neglected. No foreign TV stations, balcony, spacious bathroom. I guess the room with view on the Mediterranean sea... More

So we thought booking a Mercure we should get some level of standard for the brand, this was not really the case. The hotel was on the sea, but the pool looked awful...it was off season but was still a turn off. The room was only ok, I was expecting upgraded beds that I get when I stay at Mercure's... More

Avoid if possible! We stayed one night after a long day of travel. The front desk clerk was barely functioning, the room was below average, and the street noise was horrific. Overall, the staff was totally uninspired and our stay was not good. We ate dinner at the hotel and it was another bad experience. The restaurant was serving some... More

A terrific small hotel offering great overnight business acommodation. Arriving early evening I enjoyed a excellent meal with friendly and attentive waiters, although the very clean restaurant itself lacks a little character. If you are staying here I would urge that you sleep on the seaside as the streetside has nothing to recommend it, overlooking quite a busy arterial street.... More
