Pros: quick check-in and not too much of a hassle. OK accommodations and cleanliness. Balcony and quiet room. Night guard who went up to wake us up early in the morning (2 flights of steep stairs). Cons: Staff is a bit abrupt and does not like French people (at least the one I talked to - seemed to be the... More

This hotel is really handy both for the port and town. It is also near where most of the bus journeys to other parts of the island depart from. The staff were very helpful in recommending local restaurants and made our stay very pleasant.

I settled on this hotel because my other choices were full. Granted, this was the height of the tourist season, but I was visiting friends and needed a place to sleep. That is about all I can say for this hotel. It is a place to sleep. There are no pictures on the walls. I didn't even get shampoo until... More

Nobody speaks English, they roll their eyes at you with anything you say, and then when I paid over 60 euros for just a few hours sleep, the man then miraculously spoke some English. I asked what time breakfast is and was told to be there before 9.30, which I was. But only to be told then that I had... More

no one here speaks English!!!!!! Room was appalling. Also difficult to get to. Made booking online and hotel reception could not find the booking!!! Shower was small and inconvenient. Not enough space in room for two people with two bags - had to put one bag in the bathroom for the night!!! Don't stay here, unless you're on your own.... More
