The outstanding feature about this hotel is the retro decor from the 1960s. But whereas the similar sytle hotels from the Yugoslavia period in the Adriatic, for example, aren't well maintained, this one is. The lobby is a classic of this genre and unforgettable. The location cannot be beat, just across from the train station and two blocks away from the main esplanade. I'd have to fault their service when they took unusually long to check us in. The breakfast was also super crowded to the point where we had to wait for a table to become free. There is free wireless.
