Ryanair placed us in this hotel overnight due to bad weather in Rhodes which prevented us from landing. The hotel manages to cater to 240 tourists with about an hours warning. We were made to feel very welcome, the staff were friendly and very sympathetic. Drinks at €3 was very reasonable and we received a good quality buffet style evening... More

The price for our room was pretty expensive too for the location. Nice staff with a small problem, I wanted some of our paid breakfast for one person... More

We booked this hotel for one day as we needed to get out of our accommodation at midday and our flight to Gatwick wasn't until 11pm. I was a bit concerned as the reviews on Trip Advisor were not good but I think they are totally unjust. In our party there were 10 adults, 2 children and an infant and... More

Travelled with a group and stayed for three nights at this hotel. Room very small, bathroom smaller. No towels in bathroom when we arrived. Air conditioner did not work properly - only blowing hot air. Not fixed until last day of our stay. Asked for a couple glasses for bathroom - given plastic ones. Staff very impolite with a 'don't...

Very shabby place. We stayed there when our plabe to Warsaw was 12 hours deleyed. The place is noisy, furniture is old, food is horrible. Of course is was better than waiting the whole night at the airport. Otherwise I would never go there again.
