“Good Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We had a very pleasant stay here. The bed was a bit worn along the edges and the metal was sticking through the fabric so that wasnt great but it was still comfortable in the middle.
It was very convenient to get to the waterfront from here which was really super. Hectically expensive wine that wasnt even nice!! Cold shower in the morning which was not great. But this could just be a silly adjustment that we didnt know about!
Very safe area.

We spent one night here as part of a bus tour. Older hotel but every worked and it was clean. Good location. Easy to walk into the old town and to the waterfront. Lovely room, lots of space. OK breakfast.

There was no TV remote controller in the room so reception sent a staff member to our room with 3 remotes. None of them worked. We were told that the next morning they would take one from another room and we would be OK.
In the morning we discovered that the high-tech, space-age, shower in the room did not work. It had twelve nozzles, a huge shower head and an FM radio in it, but only the hand shower worked. In addition, the drain was so inadequate that the shower basin filled up to overflowing, and as the floor tiles were glazed the wet bathroom floor became an ice rink. This was an extremely dangerous situation. We complained in reception and expected something to be done about it, but nothing was.
The breakfast room was nice and spacious as it would have to be for 73 rooms, but a minor disaster as the hot food could not be kept hot. And for all these rooms taking breakfast there was only one coffee machine. The resulting queue was up to 12 persons long at times.
In the afternoon there was still no remote for the TV. A staff member tried another two that also did not work, but then he showed us how to work the TV manually and we were OK. The shower was in the same state as when we left in the morning. The only thing that worked in this hotel was the staff, but clearly they had little or no backing from management.

We liked the room & the cleanliness, but having to eat the unpleasant breakfast output left a bad taste about the place. Just too old and outdated to repeat a visit here. Location is fairly close to the walking street towards the sea.

i was unpleasantly surprised by the service and value of the hotel.After having a reservation a month ago with a written confirmation for a room in thos hotel,they met me offering me a transfer for the second night to a hotel 3-4 km away from the center.it was someting which i didnt accept unless it is a hotel accross the street.Breakfast was ok,but hotel was crowed(full with chineese who turned to be very noisy visitors) and you have to get in line for a cup of coffee.It wasnt worthy to pay so much money for poor service and deffinetely not 4 star cleaness.

TG stayed only one night, towels very course, bathroom mini size, not anything an American would
choose. Very thread bare and nosiy, Only good thing was could walk to tour the Palace.
In summary, hotel very old in need of a renovation and the towels must be replaced, pronto.
