“Basic and clean”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

The rooms were very small with very hard beds and pillows. The bedside lamps didnt work until we went down to reception to ask for globes which we inserted ourselves. There also appeared to have a problem with the gas as we were not able to have a warm shower until after 9.00am so we were very glad we were not taking the first ferry to Morocco.
The room was a bit noisy until after 11.00pm because of the sporting facility beside the hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Perfect modern rooms with a nice breakfast. Unfortunately the hairdryer was wrapped with someone else's hairs, which was pretty disgusting, so I'm knocking off a star.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

The location just in the near of the ancient city and beach is great but in the direct neighborhood You face the school with a lot of noisy sport activities until late night (if You travel in the time of busy school). The place is clean but very basic (Shower was broken) the rooms were quite small and the beds are pretty short and little soft. The breakfast was also basic but ok. Free w-lan.

Room Tip: All pretty much the same.

The hotel was nice and the service great. It's very close to the beach.Although the room had a weird smell (it went away after we opened the windows) it was comfortable.

Clean comfortable hotel. 5 minutes to beach (make sure you ask for directions, otherwise you won't get there straight away!). 10 minutes to main town area. Free wi-fi in lobby, helpful desk staff.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2010

This hotel must have had a renovation in the past two years, as contrary to one review, I found this hotel to be modern. Rooms match the look and feel of the lobby area which can sometimes get all the attention from the interior designer. Shower facilities were excellent, rooms have flatscreen TVs and sleek built in wardrobes. This place was excellent value at €25 per person including breakfast which was delicious and ambient. The location is a little isolated from the main town area but didn't any problems and felt safe. However I would not relish walking alone here frequently. Our view from bedroom was of the air conditioning units, but considering the location, not much more could be expected.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2009

6 of us stayed at this hotel for two days and one night. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean with comfortable beds. The location was great for us as it was about 150m away from the beach where we Kitesurfed. It was about a 10 min walk into the heart of the old town. The surrounding area was not the smartest but that didn't concern us. I would probably get breakfast elsewhere.
