Wifi for a fee (which did get a bit overloaded around siesta time), Fridges for a fee also. Breakfast was basic (Cereal, Toast& pastrys, Frys, Cold cuts, Fruit)... More

The best thing I can say about this hotel is that it is ideally located to great bars and restaurants. We arrived very late on Sunday night but breakfast finished at 10am and everything cleared away by 10.02am, asked for toast and got a very cool reception. The breakfast in general was very basic and staff either didn't speak English... More

the reception and the waiter was friendly but everything else was tragic. the hotel doesn't have free wifi and you must to pay 1.5euro for 20min. the bed was old and the room wasn't very clean. the location is perfect to the center of Bugibba. the last one was the pool, it is so small like bathtub

This hotel (pronounced prim-error) is on the corner of the pedestrianised centre of Bugibba. The bars are open ( or still have customers ) until 2.00 or 3.00 am. The noise is absolutely horrendous ! Then the dust carts and water bowsers come round about 5.30. This is probably fine for young people who can have a skinfull at night... More

The hotel is located perfectly, just 2 mins from the sea, 10 mins walk from the bus terminal, rooms are clean and comfortable, good breakfasts - in general no complains. The receptionists were extremely helpful as guides: all places to see, buses, etc. I was more than satisfied and will come back again, no doubt.
