Its a family run place and the staff are very friendly. Breakfast was very good buffet, we had lunch there a few times and the food was very good. The rooms are ok although a bit tired the airco worked fine and the shower could do with some improvement. It is a budjet hotel so you get what you pay... More

The rooms itself are basic, though the are equipped with TV, airconditioning a safe and a fridge, but for the latter two one has to pay a fair amount (I believe 15 EUR... More

There was an air conditioner and a large fridge, both of them with flawless operation.... More

The hotel is a short walk from the beach in a residential part of the town so is reasonably quiet at night. Rooms are basic & a little tired but very clean. There is very little outside space as most is... More
