“Nice hotel on very good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2009

We have stayed in this hotel during 2 nights. Location of the hotel is very good; near the market place where you can find several nice restaurants and cosy bars and the beach is only about 5 minutes walking away.
Welcome was nice; very friendly and hospitable and we were given a room immediatly although we arrived rather early; half past 12.
We had chosen the cheapest room (65 euro a night including breakfast) and the room appeared to be on the 3rd floor which could be reached by a very small elevator. In fact; I have never seen such a small elevator.
The room was very small also but very bright and very clean. The bed was not too small for us (we are both about 1,75m) and very comforable. Bathroom was adequate and clean but the shower curtain was (to our surprise because the rest of the room is so very clean) covered with many mould spots which was rather dreadful. Water-pressure is not too good either.
Breakfast was really nice and it is nice that the owner aks you how you want your egg; boiled or fried and he is going to prepare it right away.
We parked the car on a parking spot about 100meters away for only 5 euro a day which is really cheap. Parking spots around the hotel are usually occupied but when you are lucky you find such a spot and parking is free there....
I would stay in this hotel again because I think for 65 euro a night you get a good deal. I hope the shower curtain has been replaced by the next time I get there.....

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2009

the hotel was quite cheap. they advertise free parking available which there is but it has nothing to do with the hotel its on one of the side streets and obviously it gets full very fast. they do have parking spaces which cost 5 euro a night which i thought was very good i dont know why they dont say this on there hotel page.. the rooms that we had were very very small the photos make them look so much bigger. one of the lights above the bed fell of the wall and just hang there from the wires. breakfast was the usual bread cheese and meat. they will make you scrambled egg and bacon. the bacon was paper thin and soaked in grease. if your only staying 1 night then i say its cheap so ok. but for a long weekend i would not stay here again i would rather pay more money and get a better room
