“Nice view, good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

We had our meeting on the top floor with nice views. I liked the breakfast a lot, and to me the staff was very pleasant though we sometimes had no mutual language. The walk to the city centre took some 15 minutes.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

This is a nicely situated hotel by the beach, and a decent walk to the town. It's not a fancy hotel, but we had everything we needed, including parking space and a storage room for our bikes. Everything was clean and well kept. The staff was very friendly.

Hotel Maja had a mixture of positive and negative things, which, if you add them all up, you get an average result. On the positive side you had a very nice breakfast, a very reliable wi-fi connection and a great view of the sea. On the negative side: the aesthetics of the rooms were well below average, the bed was rather bad and in general the furniture belonged to another decade-definitely not the previous one- and was inconvenient, the plugs were not installed in convenient places, nobody from the staff spoke english or at least to a level that you could hold a basic discussion and we felt a bit "tricked" at the end, since we ended up paying for the coffee breaks provided, despite the fact that our group had booked some 20 rooms (if not more) and our host had already paid of the organisation of the meeting. This was announced during the first day of the meeting for some lame excuse that they found (claiming that some people from the group had made their reservations through booking.com and they paid less). I don't know what their competition is, but it was surely overpriced for the overall impression.

Upsides:
- Breakfast was great.
- The sunbeds and umbrella on the beach are included in the room price. We found this very comfortable.
- The street along the beach had everything we needed. There are restaurants and pubs quite close by.
- Our room had a seaside view.

Downsides:
- Our room was clean and contained everything we needed, but seemed a bit old. It must have been a smoking room, because it had a bit of a smell.
- You have Everything you need close to the hotel, but if you want to explore the town or go shopping, you end up walking back and forth along the beach. It's not a bad place to walk at all, but it gets tiresome. You can rent hotel bikes if you want.
- Sunshine hit the balcony in the morning only. The rest of the day there was a shadow.
- Don't try to get any advice from the hotel staff in English.
