...of the rooms on the second floor, which is like a 'John Malkovich' floor accessed by a small spiral staircase - the rooms are not full height, so anyone who's 6ft will struggle. The other dimensions of our room were very small too, though the bathroom had a nice big sink and lots of shelving (and was clean).
Also, we asked the hotel to book us a taxi to the airport, and the guy they called charged us 35 Euros for a 20-minute journey - it had cost us 24 Euros when coming from the airport in a taxi from the rank outside the terminal. So if you need to ask them to book a cab, I suggest you check how much it will be and/or make sure it's not a buddy who runs a private car company they call!
It's in a fantastic location for the old town, Place Messina, and of course the flower market and seafront, but overall it's more like a three-star hotel than a four-star one (no hand soap, slightly sarcastic receptionist).
