My stay at New Kings Hotel was stupendous! The room was spacious and comfortable, with an inbuilt docking station! Definitely a highlight for me. The breakfast had a good selection, even for vegetarians! I highly recommend this sumptuous hotel, not only for its service but also for its proximity to restaurants, the beach and other amenities.

Excellent Just the reservation was a bit slow. I had to phone twice to ask them to deduct payments. They were not clear on the payment amount and I was under the impression that they were going to dedcut the full amount.Upon arrival they indicated they only dedcutd the one room and not 2.

I am not English but I speak the language fairly well. In the reception I had difficulties in understanding on what floor my room was. "First" and "fifth" sounded as identical floors so first I took the elevator to the wrong floor. Anyway, this is not important. During the night the air-condition cracked so the bed beside me became soaked...

the rooms are large clean and comfortable. in the area you can find all your needs for shopping and it is less than 5 minutes walk fro the beautiful promenade along the beach. free parking in protected area is very useful.

I had a sea facing room on the Top (5th) floor and would highly recommend. Conveniently located, comfortable bed with modern facilities. My only disappointment was no bath only shower but then maybe I am a bit old fashioned.
