We stayed in this hotel for a week in early November. We’d bought the room as part of a package and the whole deal was excellent value. We may have had another opinion if we’d paid anywhere near the rack rate...This is a really good budget hotel.
The hotel is in a superb location – close to the major sites; albeit at the bottom of the hill – and they’re at the top!
The staff are friendly and helpful and breakfast (western European style) is both varied and ample but, the fabric of the hotel is a little tired.
There are no convivial indoor public areas to use when it’s cool or wet and sitting on the roof terrace isn’t therefore an option. The lobby is set with tables and chairs to take restaurant overflow and there aren’t any sofas or soft chairs.
Our room was plagued with mishaps – the majority dealt with but there were dud light bulbs, no wash hand basin plug and the most awful smell that proved to be a leaking WC. The window leaked badly when it rained (as it did). Whilst not at all dirty the room and corridor needed better house-keeping and some TLC. The wi-fi was however free with a good signal.
