Very loud with dishes early in the morning. Other two couples got rooms somewhere in the basement, without a windows and bad beds. We were thinking to use... More

The rooms are good and have an arabesque vibe while the entrance and lobby of the hotel are ugly and look like they are from a completely different hotel. The rooms were obviously renovated an redecorated not long ago, I suggest the do the same to the entrance. Also, the wifi is bad!

We emailed the hotel multiple times before coming and never got a reply. 2.We paid for an airport transfer but waited 1hour at the airport before deciding to take a taxi. The hotel staff were unapologetic once we arrived. In fact, the hotel staff were not welcoming.... More

We Stayed here in April 2013. We booked sea view room and it was really nice with good furniture. The reception is horrible. You cant even call it a hotel reception, it looks like the entrance of a residential building. The breakfast is ok but they should improve it and add other varieties. The hotel's location was excellent directly on... More
