I stayed here with a friend for 4 nights in September and it was a perfectly decent basic hotel. Everything was clean and the bathroom/shower was also very decent. The wifi was very good and the mini fridge was a nice surprise also. No AC but we knew that when we booked it. It does feel very similar to student... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. It was clean and perfectly functional. The rooms were very warm so we kept the window open which meant it was noisy and the lights from outside were bright. However it didn't spoil our stay. The breakfast is excellent value. But check the times as we missed breakfast one morning. Reception staff keen to... More

That my husband and I stayed at. 1. There was a person working at the front desk who was really unfriendly and not at all customer service oriented. 2. The room we got had no ventilation, i.e no ac nor fan hence we kept the window open at night. Our room was on the 1st floor and facing the street.... More

Had a rather long drive and at first was impressed with good parking and the central location of the hotel. Then had a very bad check-in experience, a night attendant who thought he knew me and what I would like and should have better than I myself knew! Slammed my passport and paperwork around when he couldn't get his own... More

210€ for a terrible night! I was super happy to stay in this hotel. When I first entered it seemed like heaven on earth. Big rooms, modern bathrooms, nice bed but uncomfortable pillows. The nightmare begins when we figured out there was no air conditioning, but worse of all the amount of light that fills the room is pathetic. The... More

This is a very solid, well maintained and clean student hotel. It is in a quite location, away from the old town but close to the beach. What I really liked about my stay was the fact that every single member of staff I came in contact with was enthusiastic, professional and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The reception...

This place is like a great dorm, if you're up for that kind of accommodation. Rooms are super clean, extremely spacious, has huge desk space and closet, and tons of outlets: apparently some college students use it as their housing during the school year. Breakfast is modest: cereals, some breads, juices, some plate of cheese and luncheon meat, tomato purée... More

Excellent stay large clean room with comfy bed, 15 min walk from sea front. We arrived summer school hols and found adequate parking which is free. Good breakfast option either comprehensive package or unusually pay per item, 2 had breakfast for 7 euro. Only down side walls seem thin heard a lot of noise during night.

Staid here for a week while doing a VBS at a local school. The location was perfect, we were close to town and close to the Catholic school we worked with as well. The staff at the hotel are super friendly and willing to help how ever they could. AMAZING shower pressure. Rooms were fair size, leave the window open... More
