We have stayed 3 nights in this hotel. I would not recommend it if you want to spend a good night's sleep. The windows do not isolate any noise, so you hear all the noise from the very busy street. At 8 am the cleaning staff is waiting to get started and makes a lot of noise in the corridor... More

The good - cheap, friendly staff, hard-wood floor (which I've never seen in a hotel before), close to the beach (relatively short walk), great location The bad - not that clean, a/c super noisy, bathroom disgusting, small, and very close to the bed (you'll see what I mean) An average hotel at best.

The location of the hotel is very good. However, it is a old style hotel, with regular rooms.The price is very high for what is offered and the hotel do not have a breakfast included. It is very near the beach.
