The location of the hotel is good for exploring the city by foot - the small "downtown district" is ca. 15 minutes away, the historical harbour area ca. 25 minutes. Those who have a car to start excursions out of town will reach the outskirts quite fast. Still, the atmosphere of the hotel mirrors the speed of the development the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and the room is very tiny. We didn't plan on being in the room very much because of exploring, so it was OK. I wasn't too impressed with the breakfast offered. The dinner was cheap, but didn't have a lot of options. Staff was nice.

Although this is a budget hotel and the room was small with no window, I still think there were more good things than bad ones, hence the overall good score. The reception staff were efficient and extremely helpful. They organised our return bus to the airport and printed off homeward boarding passes. Their English was excellent. Breakfast was not fancy,... More

Stayed on school trip - May 2015. Also another was school there - so perhaps consider this if you are expecting a romatic getaway. Yes, rooms are small but the price is too! They are clean, warm and functional. The beds are very narrow. The bathrooms are great - always hot water. The breakfast and dinner were plentiful - usual... More

Our double room was smallest room I've ever stayed in. There was place only for the bed and nothing else, you don't even have where to unpack your suitcase, which we had to put under the bed in order to walk around bed. I am always taking with me small kettle, especially while traveling during the winter, and there was... More

The rooms are VERY small. Insulation between rooms is almost non-existent! Staff friendly and helpful but the rooms are small even the delux are not that 'delux'. Food is adequate - simple but sufficient varietyto fill you up. Lots of school groups stay there - be aware you may end up in between students making late night noise.

I was travelling by myself for the first time on this holiday so understandably I was a little nervous but there was no need. The staff made me feel welcome, let me know where everything is beforehand (which isn't always common practice!) and helped with any tours. The rooms were rather small but it didn't bother me too much as... More

I stayed at this hotel following a double mountain marathon in iceland. The first of the two nights was part of a group booking so i decided it was easiest to stay here for a second night on my own and was allowed to keep the twin room for myself. Firstly communications were not very swift by email, but we... More
