“Good for a cheap overnight stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2015 via mobile

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night. It was fine for our needs, but in a bit of a run down area near the station.
Breakfast was ok and we met Archimedes the parrot!
We also had parking for our car.
The room was in need of a refurb, but was clean.

Fantastic value for money. The theme and decoration were quaint and charming and the room was clean and very comfortable. The staff were congenial and friendly and always happy to assist. Altogether a very pleasant experience and perfect for an unpretentious stay at an economical price.

We stayed 3 nights here snd were very impressed. We loved the theatre theme. We found the day time staff helpful and obliging. The room was spacious and comfortable. The photos on this site don't do it justice

stayed here with a couple friends, rooms were good with lot's of floor space. bathrooms are very basic. Could use some updating for sure, but it's great if you're on a budget. Breakfast was pretty basic but still good. I didn't have much interaction with the staff so I can't comment much on that but check in was easy and fast.

The one good thing about this hotel is the proximity to the train station. That's the only good thing. But there are other hotels near the station so I suggest you stay at a different one. The Archimede hotel is in need of updating. It's not dirty but it's not nice. We were told it was full up but in fact we were the only guests-I'm not suprised it was empty. I wouldn't even get in the shower with the dark, bodged silicone around the edge and the tacky sliding plastic doors. It was dreadfully noisy all night from traffic and just a few doors away from a brothel. We were told a twin room was 75 euros but managed to get them down to 50 (still too expensive for this grade of accommodation) and when we asked about breakfast we were told that we couldn't have it as we had been given the room at a 'special price'. When we asked for a kettle or some hot water we were told there would be an extra charge. All in all an unpleasant experience.

Room Tip: You could ask for a room at the back. It might be more quiet than the front.

It's a good location and the staff was very helpful. It isn't luxurious by any means, but more than adequate. It is a short pleasant walk to the old city or to the archaeological ruins. I'd rate it good.

After an awful night's sleep here (paper thin walls, doors that slam very loudly) we left early for our train. We asked for some hot water to make a flask of tea with our own tea bags and they flatly refused! The staff were rude. To make things even better, I found over 120 bites all over me from the bedbugs at the hostel. Pay the extra few euros, and stay somewhere else. I would rather have slept on the street.
